Product Shares

If you’d like to be notified when we open our Product Shares for the January-April 2023 Mini Catalog, please complete the form below to join our Product Shares mailing list. Thank you so much for your interest in our Product Shares!


What is a product share? It’s just like how it sounds! Instead of buying full packages of new paper, ribbon, and embellishments in a new catalog, you’ll split it / “share” it with a group of people and pay a fraction of the price – and Team Paper Pixie does all the work for you!

Here are a few behind-the-scenes looks at one of our past product shares!

We order all the product needed for the filled and paid shares as soon as the catalog goes live! Once we receive the product, everything is checked to be sure all is accounted for! Then we roll up our sleeves and get to work!

All of the paper and ribbon is quartered and packaged individually. Each are labeled with the product name, item number, item price, catalog name, and coordinating colors.

Those who participate in both the paper & ribbon/embellishment share receive a free gift from me (pictured in front basket above). We also like to include a handmade tag or mini card with each share!

We work as quickly as we can to prepare, package, and ship out product shares to each participant! It’s a labor of love for sure, but we’re honored & grateful to do it! It makes us smile to think of each participant “oohing” and “aahing” over all the beautiful products! We love hearing what your favorites are!

  1. The 2022-2023 Annual Catalog is my second time purchasing product shares from Julie, The Paper Pixie. She mailed it yesterday (5/16) and I received it today (5/17)!! Everything is professionally packaged and well labeled with name, item #, price, catalog and coordinating colors. Couldn’t ask for more, unless Julie made the cards for us!
    Thanks, Julie and Bryan. I am very well pleased.

  5. I got your share last year and know I wanted it again. So nice to see paper and ribbons before buying. Most of the 12”x12” I cut down anyway. The cost is so much better. What hard work you do thanks for doing this. I have a Stamping up person here in my town or I would like to buy more from you. Keep up the good work, fun to see about your family. Enjoy your retirement of your other job.

  8. Oh, Julie (& Bryan), I received my paper share today. Thank you so much. Your attention to detail is beyond compare. I love that I can just put this perfectly cut, perfectly cataloged DSP right in my file and I am ready to go. There would never be a way for me to purchase all these papers, and I feel so creative that I have some of it all. I will see you tonight at Paper Pixie time!!!
    Have a blessed evening.

  9. Just getting out of the hospital it was so very nice to go home to this package. I ❤️Love looking at all the beautiful DSP’s. You really don’t know how beautiful they are without actually seeing them in person. Thank you for all your time time and effort that went into doing this for us. Beautifully done and everything is so well labeled. Very generous portions of each ribbon included really is fabulous. Enough to decorate several cards . . . I will definitely continue doing these with you . .

  19. Thank you for the paper shares. I love the Awash In Color and Hues Of Happiness. I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked alot of them since the catalog pictures never do them justice. I got the Hues of Happiness in my preorder but was hesitant to get alot more right away. This is the first time I participated in a paper share. Thank you

  20. I have been participating in the product shares for a while now. I love them because it gives me the opportunity to see the paper in real life and choose the one i really like and want. I love the Rose Gold paper. The 3 different finish of the same color, beautiful.

  25. My paper and ribbon shares arrived yesterday. WOW! Thanks, Julie. You and your hubby did a fantastic job of cutting, sorting, labeling and packaging everything perfectly. This was my 2nd year to get the paper shares and I’ll definitely be getting them again next year. The only thing for me to do is figure out which papers I want to use first. Right now I think my favorites are Awash In Beauty and Tea Boutique, but that could change once I start making cards.

  29. I love product shares. It gives me the opportunity to see and use all the dsp. I love sharing the ribbon. I don’t usually but a lot of ribbon so this is perfect. The way it is packaged with name and colors and catalog number is perfect to help me use it all. I appreciate all that you do to give me a glimpse of the new products. Thanks Julie

  30. So much fun to find that bright purple package in my mailbox and the ribbons are so pretty! Thinking about projects to use them on. Any hacks on removing a bend where you don’t want it without damaging the ribbon? See you Wednesday!!

    I love the paper and ribbon shares.
    This is my 2nd catalog paper shares and my 1st ribbon share. Being a hobby demonstrator, I usually try to get all the paper and ribbon and embellishments but I don’t always like everything. This share lets me pick and choose the full packs. Thank you.

    • Hi Julie,

      Everything arrived beautifully labeled & packaged.

      I have drooled over all the paper (as you predicted) and…. ( Drum roll please) my favorites are Lights Aglow, Snowflake, and Festive Foils.

      Now, I might change my mind as we all do when I get down to business.

      Thank you so much.

  39. Thanks Julie,
    I received my paper share today. Everything arrived beautifully labeled & packaged. It is so hard to pick just one favorite they are all awesome. I have several favorites Gingham Cottage, Sweetest Christmas, and all the sparkle paper. Now to start making samples using all the beautiful collections.
    I love being able to have the samples to show my club members all the paper options.

    Thanks for all you work.

  40. Hi Julie!

    Today, I received the paper and ribbon share package. Everything arrived undamaged. I love the papers and ribbon from the product share, and I appreciate all of the labeling and sorting of the product. Thank you for all of your hard work.

  41. Thanks Julie (&Brian!)
    My product share arrived today and it was GLORIOUS!! This is my 3rd time for a product share and it always arrives so well packaged & labeled. Love that I can sample the entire variety, then to on to make better decisions about which ones I have to have more of!
    If I had to pick a favorite, I think the snow/flocked paper is going to be interesting to work with and I might be in love with all of the ribbons, so I really can’t choose one 🙂 I especially love the pattern you used on the cute Thank You card you sent with my order.

  43. I received my product shares yesterday. Thank you. It is always such quality work that you and Bryan put into these packages. They are so well packaged that they arrive just like you package them. This is probably the 4th or 5th time I have ordered from you and will continue to do so. Thanks again.

  46. Just pulled my product share stash out of the mailbox. This is the first time I have participated, and I was blown away! Not only is the sheer volume of paper amazing, but to have each collection so beautifully packaged and labeled is over the top! Thanks so much for providing this service. Seeing the papers up close and personal makes it so much easier to decide which ones I want to purchase.

  47. Such a great day! Paper Pumpkin and my Paper Pixie Paper Share! The papers are just gorgeous. The catalogs, while very nice, don’t show just how beautiful these papers are. Thank you for all your hard work in getting these out to all of us! You do such an amazing job. I wouldn’t be as happy with a paper share from anyone else! You amaze and inspire me so much! Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us!
    Sending thanks, love and well wishes!

  48. Hi Julie,
    Thank you., thank you, thank you!! I my product share came in the mail today thank you. I think what I like the most are the Wonderful World, Rings of Love and of course the Story Book gnomes papers. I just had a ‘tightrope’ surgery on my right hand, but in a few months I will be back into my card making hopefully pain free or at least lessoned. SO I am bringing my husband on board to help me do some cut and maybe some pasting, we’ll see. I think the painteing and coloring may be minimal. My son who lives next-door, is artistic, and just maybe he’ll do some of the painting and coloring for me.

  52. Once again Julie & Bryan have hit it out of the stadium! The papers are gorgeous, both elegant & fun. I know there are many demonstrators out there, and I know they do paper shares, but I bet their’s don’t come separated and labeled plus a hand written note. I am happy I found the Paper Pixie, and her helper and am grateful for all you do.

  53. Good afternoon,
    I wanted to share my very first experience as I’m rummaging through my Happy Mail (aka paper and ribbon share).
    There are so so many pkgs of visual and texture crafting joy. And if I may be honest, the catalogs are beautifully made, but pictures often don’t do these gorgeous goodies justice.
    Some ideas and thoughts come to mind:
    1.) Lights Aglow- Obviously can be used for the holidays. But, if you look at the soft succulent page with the draping garland…I totally saw possibilities for a mermaid tail or theme.
    2.) Rustic harvest- Initially I wasn’t thrilled when I saw the photo in the catalog. But, now that I have it hand. The colors are definitely more vivid and my favorite aspect is how three dimensional the images are. They truly have a “Ca-POW” against the dark background.
    3.) Storybook Gnomes & Santa Express- I love making fun fold cards and three-dimensional projects. These two paper sets provide so many scene building opportunities and beautiful background matting. I also am one of those crafters that highly enjoys fussy cutting. I can’t wait to build these scenes, make goody bags/boxes, and gift tags are definitely a must.
    4.) Wonderful World and Rings of Love- Now these paper packs surprised me. I wasn’t in love with them when I first saw them. Little did I know that these have so many options and opportunities for my love of fussy cutting. I can envision some beautiful stationary boxes, handmade of course.
    5.) Sweetest Christmas- YES! I totally see this as maybe a complimentary element to a ginger bread house themed project…one of my favorites!
    6.) Black and White Designs- I can see the versatility of these beautiful designs. Any pop of color that you add will absolutely be highlighted by these muted colors. Blend, embellish, emboss…the possibilities are endless.
    7.) Celebrate Everything- This is one that I could truly not wait to get my crafty hands on. I mean come on….how could you not appreciate that you literally have designs to celebrate everything.
    8.) Festive foils, Metallic & Shimmer Specialty Paper, Real Read & White Glimmer Paper, Snowflake Specialty Vellum, Snowy White Velvet Sheets, Silver & Gold Designer Series Paper, Glimmer Specialty Paper, Splendid Day- To be honest, I am a very texture drawn individual. These paper packs hold a special room in my heart. Although, when I have them in hand I have a challenging time cutting them up because of my love for them.
    9.) Ribbons!- Where to start… well, my love of texture makes these some of my favorite. I can’t help it. I make cards, book marks, tags, ornaments, and even in my daughters hair as barrettes.
    10.) The complimentary pearls are the beautiful icing on the cake.

    Thank you so much for this beautiful opportunity
    With crafting wishes

  54. Ohmygoodness! Sharing by Julie (and Bryan) is one of my best decisions ever! I get such a variety of papers and ribbons to make dozens of beautiful projects. Thank you for your attention to detail – the products are in perfect condition, and the labels make it simple for me to order full packs of my favorites when I’m ready to expand my fun! Keep up the good work!
