2018-2019 Swatch Books & Product Shares – Order Tomorrow!

2018-2019 Annual Catalog Swatch Books and Product Shares

Click here to order tomorrow!

Swatch Books:

What are Swatch Books? Just one of the greatest reference tools you can have! I use mine all the time. 

For each pack of Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the new catalog, you’ll receive a 3″ x 6″ book with a piece of each and every pattern in the pack. The books are super easy to flip through, so you can see all the paper designs front and back. And the books don’t take up a lot of space, so you can always have them with you.

You never truly know what the DSPs look like until you have them in your hand. Flip through each swatch book to see if you want to buy the whole pack!

All the coordinating colors for each DSP are listed on the back, which is very helpful:

  • when you need to know just exactly which blue is in that piece of DSP you’re using
  • when you’re looking for a DSP to use with a specific color. For example, say I’m in the mood to make a card using Lemon Lime Twist. I simply fan out the books to see which ones list Lemon Lime Twist on the back, which is easy since the colors are listed in alphabetical order. Then those are the books I flip through to choose a DSP for my card.

There are 20 DSPs in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, so each set has 20 books containing regular and Specialty DSPs. $45 includes shipping.

Here are a couple photos of swatch books from past catalogs, just to give you an idea of what you will receive:

Card Stock Swatch Pack – New this year!

With the color revamp, I thought it would be nice to have a sample of each and every color in the new offering. You will receive 53 swatches of 3″ x 3″ card stock. $11 includes shipping.

Paper Shares:

Want all the new Designer Series Papers (DSP) from the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, but not a whole pack of each set? Purchase a Paper Share! You will receive 208 different pieces of paper – that’s 148 pieces of 6″ x 6″ DSP and 60 pieces of 6″ x 12″ DSP. $85 includes shipping!

Embellishment Shares:

Want all the new embellishments, but not a whole pack of each? The Embellishment Share is for you! You will receive 4 Colored Doilies, 4 Pearlized Doilies, 12 Faceted Dots, 16 Glitter Enamel Dots, 25 Best Route Enamel Shapes, 19 Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, 22 Metallic Pearls, 11 Basic Jewels Red Rhinestones, 8 Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems, 10 Twinkle Adhesive-Backed Sequins, 25 Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins, 13 items from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit, 2 sheets of Tea Room Copper Vinyl Stickers, 20 Basic Brads, 20 Metallic Brads, 4 Candle Embellishments, 4 Leaves Trinkets, 6 Blossoms Embellishments, .25 oz. Tranquil Textures Sprinkles, 5 2017-2019 In Color Flower Buttons, 6 Tinted Faceted Buttons, 4 Tropical Elements, and 5 2018-2020 In Color Mini Binder Clips. Wow, that’s a lot of goodies! $41 includes shipping.

Ribbon Shares:

There are 30 new ribbons and trims (really 35, since some packs have multiple colors) in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, and I know you want them all, right? With a Ribbon Share, you will receive 39 yards of ribbon/trim (1 yard each of all, except 5 yards of metallic thread.) $35 includes shipping.

Want it all?

You will receive everything on this page – DSP Swatch Books, Cardstock Swatches, Paper Share, Embellishment Share, and Ribbon Share  – for $195 which includes shipping. That’s a $22 savings!

All prices include shipping. I can ship only within the U.S.

Everything will ship in June. Please place your order the week of May 25 – 31, 2018. I will order the products on June 1. Once I receive them, I will assemble the books and shares and send them out via Priority Mail.

BOGO Yard Sale & Open House

Open House & BOGO Sale #stampcandy

If you’ll be in the Atlanta area Saturday, June 2, 2018, you must stop by for my BOGO Yard Sale and Open House. The door opens at noon. You can drop in anytime between noon and 4pm. Of course, the closer to noon you arrive, the better your chances of getting all the BOGO sale goodies you want!

It’s free to attend, but please RSVP here so I’ll have enough of everything prepared.

VERY IMPORTANT: Park along the street (Woodcliff) behind our building. DO NOT part next to any of the units in the complex, or you will be towed and I will be fined. Thanks!

BOGO Yard Sale:

Why am I calling it a BOGO Yard Sale? Because you pay yard sale prices, plus you still get the Buy One Get One deal!

Usually at a BOGO Sale of this type, the BOGO Sale items are marked full retail price, then whatever you spend gets applied to an order from the catalog. This time I’m doing it a little differently.

I’m reclaiming my room upstairs, so I must make space. I have a LOT of great craft supplies that must go. So I’ve marked them down drastically – most items are at least 50% off, many even more than that. So you’ll save a ton of money on the yard sale items PLUS whatever you spend still gets applied to an order from the brand new 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog! 


  • shop my craft yard sale
  • whatever you spend gets applied to an order of new items from the new catalog
  • you only pay shipping and tax on the new items
  • lots of retired Stampin’ Up! products, even the ones I’ve been holding onto because I love them so much!
  • other brands are included in the BOGO Yard Sale including Martha Stewart, Tim Holtz, Anna Griffin, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Darice, McGill, Creative Memories, and many more!
  • have your new catalog order ready to save time ordering
  • If you’ve ordered from me in the past year, I will send you a catalog in May. If not, you can get your catalog at the event. I’ll have the pdf version of the full catalog posted HERE on June 1.

A sea of stamps, still to be marked down to 50% or more offBOGO Yard Sale prep #stampcandy

Open House:

  • free Make & Take using new products
  • see the new products, and lots of project ideas for inspiration
  • get your free new catalog
  • order from the brand new catalog
  • sign up for live classes

Out with the Old (Retiring Items Update) & In with the New (Early Release Products)

Out With the Old

Only 28 days left to buy retiring products. That is, only 28 days to buy what’s left of the retiring products. If there is something you want, I highly recommend you get it now rather than later. Some products have already sold out – see the discontinued chart below. Retiring stamp sets are guaranteed available until May 25. Everything else is available only while supplies last.

Here are the retiring product lists in pdf and spreadsheet format:

Here are the products from the retiring lists that are no longer available:Stampin' Up! discontinued products as of 3 May 2018 #stampcandy


In With the New

There are four amazing bundles of brand new products that you can order now! The first three Share What You Love theme bundles include free products. With the fourth bundle, of the new in color ink pads, you save 10%! These bundle prices and free product offers end on May 31, so order them now and save!

If a bundle is “backordered” that means that one of the items in the bundle is on backorder. You will receive everything else in the order as usual, then the backordered item will be delivered to you as soon as it’s available.

Here’s Candy’s Choice: 

This bundle has 13 items (3 of them free) including 3 stamp sets. This is the only way you can get the limited edition Statement of My Heart stamp set – it is only available in this bundle, and only through May 31 – and it’s free! 


CANDY’S EXTRA MAY SPECIAL: Order the Gotta Have It All Bundle from me and earn more Gumball Rewards!

This bundle would normally earn you 2 gumballs, but while it’s available in May, I’ll give you 3!  That’ll get you 1 gumball closer to a free stamp set of your choice!
