Oh my....what a time we had. I travelled down by train with Karen and Katherine....my team-mates, and Carole a demo friend. We were all like little kids in a candy shop, oohing and arhing at all the new products coming, chatting and giggling as we crafted....yes, we got to make four projects during the day...and really enjoying some girl time in the evenings, over dinner. It was also great to catch up with other fellow demonstrators, like The Pampered Stamper, Jackie Bultje.
As you can see Stampin' Up! is celebrating 30 years this year...15 of which it has been in Canada. Every year, with the release of the new annual catalogue, Stampin' Up! bring in 5 new "in-colours". This year, not only have they done this, but also revamped the whole colour line.
Bringing back some fabulous old favourites, like Mint Macaroon and Blackberry Bliss....basically
- Keeping 27 of the existing core colors
- 13 core colors are going away
- Adding 10 new core colors
- Adding 6 returning In Colors that will now be core colors (colors offered in the past that will now be available again)
The other exciting news for our tired old fingers, is the ink pad is also being revamped. The mold for the old ink pad has expired, so Stampin' Up! decided to create a new one....much much easier to open! The ink has also been upgraded with a defoaming agent added, so it won't go all bubbly on you. The new stamp pad will also be stack-able, saving you space on your craft table!
All the old style ink pads will be listed on the retired list, until sold out. Production of the new pads will go into effect and be ready for the launch of the new annual catalogue on June 1,2018.
Who wants a new annual catalogue???? Let me know, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can make sure I order one for you. All class attendee's will receive one free....so make sure you are signed up for my April or May class.
Talking about classes....I have one coming up this Friday, April 13 $10 for two cards and envelopes. One retiring and one new stamp set. Be the first to see it.
Keep checking my facebook page Colourful Cards Treats and Treasures as I will be posting the retiring list later today. You won't want to miss out.
