DSP Share

With a new catalogue comes brand new Designer Series Paper (DSP).  So that we could have a little bit of each paper, to either display for customers, or play with, I organised a DSP share within our team. Each person who joined in the share received one 6x6 size piece (or 6x3 in the case of specialty sheets) of each DSP from 11 different packs.

Have you ever seen such a big pile of DSP? 

Here are some photos of us working on the share (cutting it all into 6x6 sheets and packaging it) 

Coffee Break Designer Series Paper

Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper

Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper

I picked a favourite paper from each pack - do you like them too?

Birthday Delivery, Just Add Color, Whole Lot of Lovely, Delightful Daisy, Foil Frenzy, PickAPattern

Be Merry, Naturally Eclectic, Bundle of Love, Coffee Break, Eastern Palace

These are photos of the papers that I have taken and cropped.  Some of the colours show differently on the camera.  The Foil Frenzy paper is a kraft base but in trying to show the shine I turned the flash on, and it looks quite different.  So too does the Bundle of Love one - that is actually Very Vanilla believe it or not.  

Anyway, here are the finished papers once we'd cut them all up and packaged them.

A couple of people were near enough to me to collect theirs, rather than me posting it, so here is how I packaged it for them. 

I used the new Circle Tab Punch and wrote their names on the base.  I attached it to a plain white paper bag which I'd stamped up using the Daisy Delight Stamp Set.

Everyone was pleased with the share they received and I was grateful to them for taking part.  It was quite a bit of work but in doing so, I had the unique opportunity to see each of these packs of DSP in their full size and appreciate them as they are.
