I got to attend the first (annual?) Catalog Premiere in Long Beach on Monday. So exciting! This event was live in Long Beach, but played simultaneously in 39 theaters around the country. The 7,000 or so demonstrators saw some of the new products in the catalog that goes live June 2nd. We all went home with a catalog and one of the new stamp sets. A few lucky people won other products from the Prize Patrol. Then after the recording, the Long Beach event continued with “a few of our favorite things” style give away. We all received a products from each of the presenters! We went home with lots of goodies and a box of catalogs to share with our customers.
So since that, I’ve been pouring through the catalog. I have finished my spreadsheet so I can make all those labels and stickers for the products. I’ve seen the new In Colors (deep, rich tones). I’ve made my initial wish list… it’s long! I have placed my pre-order and my sneak peak products are on their way!
You know there are a lot of wonderful new stamp sets. Some of my favorite stamps and products have returned from this year’s mini catalogs. There’s a great new adhesive I am over-joyed about. There are new coloring tools I can’t wait to try. The wheels are gone, but there are new ways to get those nice borders. There are some wonderful new tools for custom lettering. There are some great new punches and Big Shot accessories. There are a lot of kits and bundles. Stampin’ Up! has teamed up with Becky Higgins to carry Project Life products for quick and easy memory keeping and scrapbooking. It’s all so exciting!
I’m disappointed that there aren’t Christmas stamps, but the Holiday Catalog will be here before we know it.
Just let me know you want a catalog. I will give my current customers can pick up a catalog from me free. If you are not one of my current customers, you can shop online and/or buy a catalog on June 2nd for $5.
Happy new (Stampin’ Up!) year!
