ESAD Blog Hop – 2017 Annual Catalogue Sneak Peek

Image may contain: text

There’s lots of excited Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and customers this week, because we’re only a few sleeps away from the release of the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue!

To spread some more of that excitement, a group of demonstrators from the ESAD Facebook page are getting together today to participate in a Sneak Peek blog hop.

You’re going to see lots of amazing samples as you hop around more than 20 blogs of talented Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

If you’re already on the way then you’ve just seen the gorgeous work of my friend Lou Kitzelman.  I’ll take this opportunity to give her a big pat on the back for all the hard work she does to organise these blog hops!

And now on to my creations!

Today’s shares are all about one of the bundles you’ll be able to order in the new catalogue.

I’m feeling quite sneaky today because I have the pleasure of sharing something with you that not too many people have had the chance to play with – yet – but I know will be in the shopping carts of many on Thursday.

It’s the Circle Tab Punch and Tabs for Everything stamp set!

The Tabs for Everything Stamp Set was in our bag at the April OnStage event (so lucky!) and the Circle Tab Punch appeared in my beautiful box of products for my display stamping board for OnStage #demoperks

Apart from it’s amazing uses… cards, scrapbook pages, organisation and the new planner (!!!), one of the best things about this product set is the price!

The bundle is only $54.75 in Australia and $66.50 in New Zealand!  All new bundles in the catalogue are priced to give you a 10% discount.


I used the punch in my display board samples (see them here and here) – on it’s own and with complementary products, but as with many Stampin’ Up! products, it really comes into it’s full amazinglness when used as a coordinating set.

To show you the wonderful potential, I’ve paired it one of the new DSPs.

It’s bright & fun – you’re going to love the Pick A Pattern DSP!!!

This pattern seemed perfect for the paintbrush stamp from the Crafting Forever stamp set.

I’ve used the tab on the edge of the centre panel for the ‘happy’ sentiment and the ‘birthday’ sentiment in the Classic Label punch.

The colours in this DSP are gorgeous!

For this card, I’ve used the punch negative as a little cubby for the animals – which are fussy cut from the Pick A Pattern DSP.

And the ‘hello’ sentiment from the Tabs for Everything stamp set – it’s packed full of cute (and practical) little words!


The final card uses the camera/photo page from the DSP – and following that theme, I created a film strip using the stamps from the Tabs for Everything stamp set.

With a tab pull at the end – of course!

Did you notice the use of the Classic Label Punch in these creations?  It’s not part of the bundle, but many of the sentiments fit this punch perfectly.

I am a huge fan of the Classic Label Punch – and the ability to punch out sentiments (and get them straight!).


If that wasn’t enough to tip the Circle Tab Punch onto your wishlist, then you might be tempted about how easy it is to create catalogue tabs for your new catty!

With just the Circle Tab Punch, 3/4″ circle and the {FREE} Catalogue Tab downloads below, you’ll be able to totally organise your catalogue!

Print the tab labels onto Whisper White cardstock, punch using the 3/4″ circle, attach to the left side of the tab and fold in half around each page, attaching at the rectangle tab section to create a sturdy tab.

I’ve suggested colours & page numbers – but this part is really up to you!

All my tabs sit on the right hand side of the catalogue, regardless of whether the section starts on this page or the even page number before it.

Sneak Peak – File Tab Edgelits (including free 2014-15 catalogue printable tabs)

Tomorrow is the 1st July – a new financial year, the middle of winter and ……… the arrival of the 2014-15 Stampin’ Up! catalogue.  My last sneak peak for you, before you can get your hands on it all yourself, is the File Tab Edgelits.  They come with 2 file tab edgelits and 3 number framelits (you may have noticed these in my picnic punch art card) – so many cute ways to use this very economical set.

If you like to be organised (and I do amongst the chaos!), then file tabs are a perfect addition to your catalogue for quick referencing of each section.  If you’d like to make these yourself, please download the file tabs document here and follow the instructions below.  If you’d like to purchase a set of ready made file tabs for your catalogue ($5 including postage Australia wide), please email me.  Kelly x

Note: some of the links to new products in this blog post will come up with an error until the catalogue becomes available to the general public on 1st July 2014.

Making your file tabs:

1. Download the file tab template.  Print the document onto any colour cardstock you like. I chose 4 different colours, so I could separate my catalogue into sections (Melon Mambo – stamp sets, Crushed Curry – Paper & Accessories, Old Olive – Tools, Bermuda Bay – Party & Index).

2. Cut 2.5cm off the top of your printed page and 2.3-2.5cm off the left side (this depends on how your printer prints – you may want to print a test page first to check the margins).

3. Starting at the left margin, cut three 5.5cm strips.

4. Take each strip and starting at the top margin, cut into 2.2cm sections.

5. You should now have 27 rectangles each measuring 5.5cm wide & 2.2cm deep with the writing roughly in the top middle.

6. Using the File Tab Edgelits, cut each of the rectangles into a tab shape.  I used the ‘middle’ tab edgelit, lining it up at the top edge of the cardstock and roughly in the middle.

7. Attach the tabs at even intervals (see page suggestions below).
