The Classic Garage designer paper is so cute. In addition to the gear pattern, which I used, the collection also features tools, oil cans, tires and more.  It is included in the product shares I am offering, which are described below.

It’s Time To Reserve Your Occasions Catalog Shares!

Why should you participate in The Stampin’ Schach’s Occasions Catalog Shares?

Here are three great reasons:

1.  Packaging! Designer Papers are identified for you, so you don’t have to play “Which collection is this?” Ribbons are wrapped on bobbins, not just thrown in a bag.
2.  Amounts! You receive 6″ x 12″ rectangles of paper of the designer papers, except for the 6″ x 6″ paper stacks. That’s a plus for those of you who are memory keepers!
3.  It’s a chance to sample a little bit of everything without breaking the bank!

How Shares Work

Shares are a way to sample the new Designer Series Papers, Ribbons, and Embellishments at a fraction of what it would cost you to purchase all of them yourself. And the nice thing is I do all the ordering, cutting, counting and re-packaging for you!

Simply EMAIL ME ( or to reserve your spot in a share. When your share fills (usually 4 people), I will bill you via PayPal, or you may send a check. I will begin sending out PayPal invoices January 1st. Please let me know which share you would like, and the email address you would like me to use for PayPal invoicing.  Please sign up by January 2nd if you want to be included in my first round.

On January 3rd, I will place the orders for all filled shares. Once I receive the products, I will put the troops to work, and cut, count, measure and package up your goodies pronto! Because I want to get your shares mailed out as quickly as possible, I will expedite my order to Stampin’ Up! Your papers will be lovingly wrapped and identified; ribbons will be wrapped on plastic bobbins; and embellishments will be placed into small bags. Once this task is completed, your shares will be sent out via the US Postal Service.  (United States residents only, please!)

  1. How fun! Last night while I was trying to get to sleep or maybe it was a dream – I was thinking of all the other ways I could use these dies and stamps. Too bad I didn’t write them down but I remember a few. Anyway, love your layers.

  2. Wayne would love this card. Therefore, I will have to buy the set and papers and make one for his birthday. 🙂 Thanks for sharing the video too.
