I have been asked a few times over the years what makes Stampin' Up!® so special? My number one answer would be the people. This company is run by people who truly care about us, about you, about relationships. But in regards to the products Stampin' Up!® puts into their catalogs, I have to say that they do product coordination better than anyone I've seen. I believe we've covered this before. The ink coordinates with the cardstock, the cardstock coordinates with the Designer Series Paper, the Designer Series Paper coordinates with all of the above, as well as the stamp set and dies or punch. Add in the embossing folders and accessories like ribbons and adhesives dots and the like, and you have projects that just really can't miss. I'm completely head over heals in love with Stampin' Up!'s product coordination. I wanna marry it because it's so perfect. Hahahaha!
So here it is, time for Sale-a-bration on Tuesday, January 5. You're getting ready to place your order and decide you'll start with a $50 order and maybe do that a time or two more before the end of Sale-a-bration (SAB). You open the Sale-a-bration brochure to the very first SAB product and immediately fall in love. Because what is there not to love about the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper? It's gorgeous. So then you think, what should I purchase for $50 to get my hands on that paper for free? Well, as it turns out, I have the perfect idea for you. The Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper just happens to have products in the January-June Mini Catalog that are designed to coordinate (of course, it does). The In Bloom Bundle on page 45 of the JJ21 Mini Catalog has the In Bloom stamp set that coordinate with the Pierced Blooms Dies that coordinates with the Paper Blooms DSP on page 3 in the Sale-a-bration brochure. Pure perfection. So try this for your order:
-156208 In Bloom Bundle $48.50 -144220 Rhinestone Basic Jewels $5
$53.50 Suggested SAB item: 155222 Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper, which coordinates with the dies in the bundle above
In the sample I've attached here, I used the Pierced Blooms dies from the In Bloom Bundle to cut out flowers and leaves from the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper. And don't you love the label? That comes from the Pierced Blooms Dies, too, and is cut out of Whisper White cardstock.
To say the coordination of these dies and Designer Series Paper is perfect just isn't enough, I don't think. I got so giddy about it on my Facebook Live today that I could barely contain myself.
