Sneak a Peek at Spring!

Now that the chill is hitting the air, and thoughts lovingly turn to Pumpkin Spiced everything, we’re here to give you a sneak peek forward to Spring. Your local stores are stocking their shelves with our new Spring merchandise, and the Stampendous October 2017 Catalog goes live on our website on Friday for all retail customers.

Next week we’ll start our 31 Days of Halloween posts and continue with our Fall, Christmas, and Winter projects and inspiration, but for those of you who plan and craft ahead… Spring has Sprung!

We have lots of favorite products in this new catalog, but our favorite of all is our new Spring Borders Cutting Dies. Our Design Team loved them so much, you’ll see them on almost every inspiring project.  (remember, the links won’t work until after Friday!)

DCP1009 Spring Borders Die SetThese six border dies have you covered for Valentine’s Day, Spring, Mother’s Day, Weddings, Baby Cards, and more! The flower border on the yellow background is perfect for threading a ribbon through, or a strip of patterned paper! The edger on the right with the pink background lines up perfectly with the fancy purple edger to let you make a double edge!

Here are some fun sample borders we cooked up when we were trying them. You can certainly see how fun they’re going to be!

Border Die Samples

Here are just a few of the great samples our team made with them! You’ll see these again later, plus they’re all being loaded to our website with full supply lists and instructions! We bet you can see how “must-have” these border dies are will be! You might want to call your local store now and tell them you’ll need these.

Some of the Design Team are sharing their favorite Sneak Peeks this week, too! We can’t wait for you see all our new Spring Goodness!
