Thirty (one) days of Designer Series Papers! And How to Get Your 2018 Holiday Catalog

Where did July go??  I don't know - but it is over - for my END OF THE MONTH specials make sure to read all the way to the end of the post, Lots of freebies!  Including the upcoming Holiday Catalog......

How did we get to the end of July already!?  The end of July brings with it 2 incredible specials from Stampin' Up!  I want to make sure that you don't miss out on either of them.
First - the last day of July will be your last chance to get the papers that are part of the Buy 3 Get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper Special.

On Instagram this month I posted a sample every day that showed off papers that were included in the special.  I have reposted them here today - so you can see 29 of them (today and tomorrow are not up yet).  

There are both 12x12 designs and 6x6 paper stacks.  I have tried to post them in groupings of the paper that was used in this post (if you have any question on exactly which one is on any sample, feel free to message me!)
You can tell that the Garden Impression 6x6 Paper Stack is a favorite!  This whole entire string of first samples is made using the one paper stack. It matches an incredible amount of stamp sets in the catalog and even past ones.  You will find yourself reaching for it over and over again!

The next few use the Animal Expedition paper.  While it is designed to go with the stamp set - if you just need cards for kids on rare occasions, this would be perfect to have in your stash!

There are animals that are not even in the stamp set - so just add some sentiments to the paper and you have adorable and super easy cards.

Then with the tiny leftovers - you can go back to more traditional projects - like the Lemon Bar box that I used the back of the papers that had frogs on it for!  To see a complete demonstration on how to make the box go HERE

There is not a sloth to be found in the stamp set - but how adorable is the paper in making this trendy card?

The Twinkle paper is so cute that I bought two packs of it - so expect to see much more of it in the future!

Keep reading to find out more about this card - but you can see the demonstration of it being made AND win some fun prizes by sharing the demo - over on my Facebook Live of the taping of it.

The Tranquil Texture is made to go with all of our Oceanic elements - but to be honest - a lot of it is just as the name says - texture - so when Ocean hues are in your card design - pull this paper out.
While we are on the warm and watery theme......

Tropcial Escape is another great 6x6 stack.  My favorite pieces in it are the black and white pages.
It has the feel of tropics - and if you missed the memo - Flamingos are the next Unicorn (or Llama - and the last time Stampin' Up had a Llama stamp - it was retired BEFORE the craze - so you better snatch up this Flamingo, because you will all be wanting it when Flamingos are hot and we have moved on to the next big thing.  We tend to be ahead of the trends, lol)
Black and White. Timeless.  The BACK of several of the tropical pieces.  And the August limited run Blended Seasons!

The Wood Texture 6x6 paper.  

It goes with nearly everything.

Need a masculine card?  This is what you pull out to man up even just a sentiment.

Or in my case - make it look like it came from the Farmhouse!

Seriously - I use it all the time.  See - my girlfriend even used just the scraps below for a perfect little shelf!

Need a head start on Christmas?
Then Under the Mistletoe is just what you need!

But - if this paper doesn't ring Your Christmas Bell - hang on - the Holiday Mini is coming!  And all you need to do is place an online order through me before August 25th and I will send you one before September 1st!!  I have seen it.  Trust me, you will want to as well!!

The paper is not just for cards!
These boxes become Treasured Ones when covered in the beautiful papers!

Or just cut and fold the paper itself into coordinating adorable little notecards!

Several of the sale papers have suites designed to go with them, so they include embellishments that match perfectly.

I know, it is impossible to pick just 4?!  Which are your faves?

If you want to know mine - then hands down it is the Petal Promenade.  I closed out the special with a demo of one of my favorite cards over on Facebook today.  You can head over for the replay.  This paper is just so different and will make projects that you can be proud of!  While you are there to watch the demonstration - make sure to SHARE the video - I still am giving prizes away for shares!
To Close out July - here is one last fun special - it will run NOW through 8pm EST on July 31 - 
In addition to my normal July special (which is
This July everyone who places any order on my website and uses the Hostess Code
will receive a FREE container or Basic Brads! (p 198 in the catalog)
everyone who orders over $75 and uses the hostess code
*gets the Basic Brads

Or - get the VERY BEST special of all - which just has through tomorrow remaining as well - and join the Stampin Up family....
Before I did the Facebook Live for everyone - we had a great time in my team group doing a group live.  If you join my group - you get to pick WHATEVER YOU LIKE of $125 in product for just $99 (you pay tax, no shipping).  THEN you also get to pick a FREE FAMILY of new ink pads - whichever color family you like!  That is nearly a $70 value.  I will give you the July specials of the Shammy and the Brads for ordering the kit as the end of the month special.  AND I have Team Welcome packages with goodies valued at around another $50!!!

so - no matter if you live in Indy or all the way across the USA -  you can be part of our fun and truly amazing girls.  Many of the cards you have seen as part of my 31 days were made by them as part of our Virtual Swapping that we do!  You can join by simply selecting the items of your kit and filling out your paperwork at www.cheri.stampinup.net  - go to the tab that says JOIN NOW

Super Simple.  You would have until the END OF THE YEAR to turn in $300 of orders.  If you find you can't - that's fine too.  Any questions, just message me.
