Technically it's still Spring since it's only May 1st, but today marks the launch of Stampin' Up!'s new SUMMER MINI CATALOGUE - ergo, Summer HAS arrived! <grin>
Copies should now be in the homes of all of my 40 CARAT CLUB members, my BIG SHOT CLUB members, and regular attendees of my IN STUDIO CLASSES. If the mailman hasn't delivered one to your door yet, let me know and I'll remedy the situation IMMEDIATELY! (If you can't wait that long, click on the cover photo to the left to view the SUMMER MINI online)
Stampin' Up! always packs a lot of new goodies into their mini catalogues, and the SUMMER MINI is awesome! Highlights include new Smooch Spritz in four shimmery colours ... new embossed designer papers in elegant vintage patterns ... a new Big Shot die & embossing folder ... three new punches ... an adorable new fairy set called "A Little Bit of Magic" ... two new hostess sets ... and brand new Stampin' Around Builder Wheels - you can stack up to three different wheels on one Jumbo Handle!
By far MY favourite new product lines are the two different vacation/travel collections with coordinating stamps, designer papers, embellishments, chipboard, punches and albums - what a quick and easy way to get this year's vacation photos displayed for everyone to enjoy while the memories are still fresh in their minds!
People attending my IN STUDIO classes and events have had a sneak peek at my advance copy of the SUMMER MINI over the last few weeks and so far, the two most popular stamp sets in the new mini catalogue seem to be:
- "First Day" (page 25, set of nine stamps, $31.95 wood mount & $23.95 clear mount) - its perfect for grade school scrapbooks and end-of-year thank you cards for teachers!
- "Canada Day" (page 28, set of seven stamps, $24.95 wood mount & $19.95 clear mount) - full of fireworks, a big Maple Leaf, and a montage greeting stamp with a cake, more maple leaves, and the phrases "Canada Day" and "Happy 1st of July". Customers see lots of potential for this stamp set, and I can't wait to see what you create with it!
A picture is worth a thousand words, so later this week I'll be posting some projects featuring goodies from the SUMMER MINI - come back soon!
