Changes Are Coming . . .

I had the privilege of attending OnStage local in Ft. Worth, TX this weekend.  I had such a great time with my team and it was an amazing bonding time as well as time of inspiration and learning about some of the NEW coming with Stampin' Up! and the release of the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.

 There is so much happening.  Where to begin?
OnStage brought our first look at the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  It goes LIVE on June 1.  How do you get one of those catalogs for yourself?  If you have attended  a class or placed an order over $25.00 with me in the last six months, I will be adding your name to the mailing selector this month and you will be receiving a catalog for FREE when they are mailed in May.  If you would like to receive your catalog for FREE, there is still time.  All you have to do is attend a class or place an order by April 29.  If you'd just like to purchase a catalog, please comment or email me at and we will make arrangements for you to get a catalog.

 The beginning of a new annual catalog means the release of a new set of In Colors.  Check out the cover of the catalog for your first glimpse of the 2018-2020 In Colors (minus the purple).  The new In Colors are: Lovely Lipstick
                   Grapefruit Grove
                   Pineapple Punch
                   Call Me Clover
                   Blueberry Bushel

This year, there is a Color Refresh of Stampin' Up colors.  13 colors are retiring, the remaining colors are being reorganized into the color families (Brights, Regals, Subtles, and Neutrals).  Basic Black, Whisper White, and Very Vanilla are moving to a new Basics color family.  The Ink Pad is also being revamped for this catalog.  All classic ink pads will only be available in the new style:

  •  opens easier like a compact
  •  the lid fits more tightly
  • it has a color name sticker that fits inside the open ink pad, so you know exactly what color you're using before you stamp with it
 I had the chance to use the new ink pads at OnStage and I love the way they work and the image you get when you stamp.  The ink also has a defoamer added to prevent the bubbles you would sometimes get when reinking and help insure the even distribution of ink for a more precise image.

Retiring Colors:

  • Always Artichoke
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Dapper Denim
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Emerald Envy
  • Island Indigo
  • Marina Mist
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Perfect Plum
  • Pink Pirouhette
  • Rose Red
  • Soft Sky
  • Sweet Sugarplum
  • Tangerine Tango
  • Tempting Turquoise
  • Wild Wasabi
  • Wisteria Wonder

 The start of a new catalog also means the end of a another catalog.  It means the retiring of some products to make room for the new ones coming in the new catalog.  The 2017-2018 Annual Catalog ends on May 31 and the 2018=2018 Annual Catalog begins on June 1.  The list of Last-Chance Products retiring by May 31 came out today.  The products are through May 31 or while supplies last.
Check out the Last-Chance Products in my store.
There is an Early Release coming for customers in May with exclusive bundles from the Share What You Love Suite.  There are three levels of Bundles available only in May.  When the new catalog goes live on June 1, the products will still be available but not at the special bundle prices including FREE and EXCLUSIVE product.  Keep watching this blog for more detail.
I hope you're as excited about the new catalog, color reboot, and all the Stampin' Up! excitement as I am.  The 2018-2019 Annual Catalog goes LIVE on June 1.  The Share What You Love Suite exclusive bundles become available to customers on May 1.  Get excited, get your wish list ready, and let me know if you have any questions or I can help you in any way.  If you can't wait to get your hands on the new products, consider joining my team and become a demonstrator.  Demonstrators can order the Share What You Love Suite special NOW and can Pre-order from the Annual Catalog beginning May 1 and NEW items can be added to your starter kit.  So, if you can't wait to get your hands on the new products, let m know and I'll help you order your starter kit and get signed up for my team.
