I’m back tonight after what feels like the longest week. I have had a busy ol’ time this week but it has been filled with lots of exciting changes which I’ll update you with soon, I promise!
So last week I told you about the start of the new Stampin Up! year and the new Annual catalogue. Along with all the new stamps, papers and tools there are also five fabulous new colours. Each year Stampin’ Up! launch a new collection of fresh and trendy colours in conjunction with the four core collections. The new colours have a lifespan of two years so we have these till 2014.
I love these five new colours, they are Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple and Primose Petals. As usual Stampin’ Up! have all the coordinating products in these colours we need including Classic Stampin’ Pads & Ink Refills, card stock, Stampin’ Write Markers, Designer Series Paper Stacks, Dahlia Flower Adornments, and Stitched Satin Ribbon.
I couldn’t wait to have a play with the new colours and decided to create bookmarks to coincide with my launch party, an idea cased from a US demo Jennifer Blomquist.
I know it can be difficult to see what the colours are truly like from the catalogue so thought these were a great way for my customers to have something to see the inks and cardstocks in real life. They’re also perfect for knowing exactly where you have “drooled” up to in the new catalogue!
Each customer who came to the launch had one of these in their personalised goodie bags, along with a raffle ticket, information on my Craft Stash Club and the free Make and Take project.
The lucky raffle prize winners were Elaine and Steph … so well done ladies!!
If you want to get your hands on a copy of the Stampin Up! 2012-13 Annual Catalogue I may just have a few of these bookmarks left so I will pop one in for you (whilst stocks last!). To order your catalogue for £5 phone or email me, and don’t forget I will discount the £5 from your first order of £35 or more.
And if the excitement of a new catalogue wasn’t enough (as if!), Stampin’ Up! have now launched in two new countries as of Monday 8th October. Yep, due to popular demand Stampin’ Up! is expanding into Netherlands (Nederland) and Austria (Osterreich).
