New Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue – Some Products to Highlight - PART ONE…. Embossing Folders

For those of you hopping on the ILWS blog hop – go here…..

And for the rest of you – just a first post of a series to highlight some of my favourite new items in the new 2012-13 Annual Catalogue that has been released.  Today it is the turn of the Embossing Folders…  which I know are a big favourite of many of you too!!

If there is anything that you fancy – please do not hesitate to contact me to order. For those of you that are local and can collect to save yourself the £4.95 postage …. I have an order going on next Thursday 11th October.

Today’s Product Feature - Embossing Folders

Oh we have lots and lots now….. difficult to pick just one out of the 19 or so we have in the Annual & Autumn/Winter catalogues ... so I won’t…. I’ll show you 4 instead… One for Christmas, one perfect for Christmas and all year and two for anytime!!

Now if you like these – go and check out my Special Offers page – Buy 3 and Get a 4th for Half Price. Note that this offer is not just for embossing folders…!

SU! Northern Flurry Embossing FolderOh how I love thee!! And how long have I wanted you to travel across the miles….

Don’t you just love that script greeting  I have used too – it is hidden in the Delightful Dozen stamp set…..


SU! Chevron Embossing FolderChevron  Folder 127749. As most of us crafters know… chevrons are the pattern of the moment… they are in use everywhere… so I am SO happy to see a brand new embossing folder to satisfy my every chevron whim!! Check out the larger size too – this one is 10.8 x 16.2cm – so covers all that A6 card  blank….

SU! Petals A Plenty Embossing Folder


Petals A Plenty Folder 116824 Beautiful for Christmas – especially with those Poinsettia images – but can be used all year round as we all love flowers don’t we…..

SU! Elegant Lines Embossing FolderElegant Lines Folder 119277 Just simply beautiful!! Don’t know what else to say…..

It just adds so much to  a project – particularly anything for a wedding…..



SU, Amanda Bates, The Craft Spa, Watercolor Winter, Timber Emboss Folder 01And here I am going to be a bit naughty…. I am showing you yet another embossing folder…. my excuse is that I can then show the full set of my embossed Watercolor Winter cards in the same post!!

This folder is the Woodgrain 127821 one which was released last month in the Autumn/Winter catalogue – isn’t it just stunning using the sanded Early Espresso Core’Dinations…. and that is from someone that doesn’t do grungy….. well not very often……

And finally…. I have to thank Dawn Olchefske for her beautiful Watercolor Winter card that I CASED here for my set of 4 - and Jen Sannes for the gorgeous tall Northern Flurry card that I CASED here.


  1. Wow - you really did take a run at it. They all look great. The woodgrain folder is perfect for the pines. Thanks for the shoutout!

  2. Magnificent! (As usual. :-P )
