Saturday was Stampin’ Up!’s On Stage Conference which was held in many locations around the globe. We had a close family friend, who’s son got married on Saturday, so we opted for the wedding over the Stampin’ up! event. We had a fabulous time at the wedding, but I must admit, it was sad to miss out on the reveal of the new Annual Catalog and all the presentations and time with other stampers. About 18 members of my Stampin’ Sisters team attended On Stage in Minneapolis on Saturday and they were gracious enough to share some group photos. Looks like they’re having a great time doesn’t it?
At the event, everyone received the new Annual Catalog and saw lots of displays and presentations of new product. My sister Peggy stopped by on her way back home to Illinois on Sunday afternoon, and brought me all kinds of special gifts from my team members. They are some of the most fabulous people on the face of the earth.
She also shared the new catalog with me. I got to ooh and ahh over every single page of it. Isn’t it gorgeous?
I am loving the rustic feel of the cover which features both feminine and masculine projects. What’s inside you ask? Well I can’t show you but I can tell you what my favorites are….that would be everything between the front and back covers. Honestly this is one of the best catalogs I’ve seen in a long time. The products are amazing and the projects are gorgeous. Like the cover says, Creativity is calling.
One of the things that we stampers tend to be most curious about are the new In Colors. Every Year Stampin’ Up! retires 5 old In Colors and debuts 5 new “In Colors”. These new colors will be part of our color palette for the next 2 years. Sometimes it’s hard to tell from a picture how you feel about a color, but I think we’re really going to love combining these colors with some of our existing colors for some fabulous color combinations.
Let me introduce them to you- from left to right in the photo above we have:
So by now you may be wondering, when you’ll get a chance to see the new Annual Catalog? June 3rd is the date it goes live where we can all order from it. But, do you want to know the good news? As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, we all get to see it online very soon and can start ordering some of the products as early as May 2nd. If you would like to get in on that action, all you have to do is purchase the starter kit and become a member of my Stampin’ Sisters family. The kit is just $99 and you get to choose $125 in product of your choice and you will save a minimum of $25 on all future purchase while you remain active. Have you got questions about that? If so just contact me and I’d be happy to answer any questions you have.
