Occasions Mini CarryOver Product List

The Occasions Mini Catalog will end in only two weeks on April 30! Today, Stampin' Up! has released their CarryOver Products List from the Occasions Mini Catalog. These are items that will continue to be available even though they are not in a Mini catalog or the Idea Book & Catalog.

Many of the items carrying over through the summer were expected (all the Big Shot products and punches), but I am ecstatic that some of the Seam Bindings, the Red Glimmer paper and trinkets were as well! However, I am quite sad that the super fun Pom Pom Trim and adorable Sweet Stitches Fabric Designer Brads are not. I will definitely be stocking up on those! We will have to wait until July 1 to see if any of the stamp sets will be in the new Idea Book & Catalog.

Click HERE to see the .pdfs in their full-size format. I hope that this helps you to plan your final Occasions Mini purchases.

Sweet Stitches

The paper I used was Sweet Stitches DSP. The big shot die is Fun Flowers. I also used a fabric button from Sweet Stitches.

Sweet Stitches

This is a 4 x 4 card made with the designer series paper Sweet Stitches. To make the spools I used the label punch and cut the ends to look like a spool.
