New Designer Series Paper Makes My Heart Go Pitter Pat – Part 2.  There are so many Designer Series Paper (DSP) collections in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog that I had to break our regular catalog DSP stroll into 3 parts.  This is part 2 of the stroll. Part 3 posts this Friday so stay tuned.  To view Part 1 click here.  Each “stop” along the tour gives you a close-up view of a DSP collection and provides the Stampin’ Up! colors that coordinate with it.  Get ready to ooooh and aaaahhh again because the paper collections are amazing this year.
