The price of SU's patterned paper

As some of you know, this year the patterned papers were supposed to be $19.95 for a pack of 12 sheets. Lucky for us (unlucky for SU!) there was a misprint in the catalogue, and we have happily been paying $13.95 instead.
Of course, it was to be expected that they would not make that mistake again, and prices would increase to $19.95. I was surprised then to see in a 'sneak peak' of the new catalogue, patterned paper would be $22.95..... WHAT?!
Luckily I wasn't alone. Lots of demonstrators have offered their 'constructive criticism' on this, and SU have listened. They have just announced that the papers will now be $19.95. I am guessing that won't be the price listed in the catalogue, but I don't mind a bit of crossing out and rewriting in my copy!
That said, it is still not the bargain of this year, especially at the moment. All of the current papers are being retired, and there are only three packs that have not been discounted - (see the list below). These prices are for packs of 12 sheets of double sided paper, so at those prices you don't have to save them up for 'special projects'! They are also all still in good supply (except the Pumpkin Pie patterned Prints which is listing as low). Let me know ASAP if you would like to order some. If you don't have a catalogue you can see them online - click on the link on the sidebar to the right to go right to it.

I should have had a photo of a project to show you, but with daylight savings having started, the morning light in here is darker than ever. Perhaps later today... (or tomorrow!)
