Countdown to new catalogue

It is nearly 1st September, which means the new catalogue is almost here!  I love this time of the year.  I love all the inspiring new samples, the new colour combinations and project ideas, the new in- colours, the new DSP, and of course, the new stamps.....does that make me a Stampin' Up! tragic?  If it is, I don't care!

I've spent the weekend cutting up 400 squares of DSP for one of my Make & Takes for the New Catalogue Launch on 9th September.  Funny how if you really like a card you designed, you start to dislike it by the time you have prepped 100 of them!  Almost finished preparing that card, one more design to go.  Then more samples, prizes, raffles, etc.  It is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun.  I can't wait to show you all the gorgeous projects I've made!

In the meantime, here is the (sniff!) ever-growing list of retired products that are sold out forever.

Don't be alarmed by the retirement of the ink pads and trimmer, by the way.  They are being reconfigured, and will be better than ever in the new product line.  I've tried the new foam ink pads, and I have to say, they totally ROCK!  Much better coverage, you need a lighter touch (no more digging the stamp into the ink pad, or concave ink pads that don't ink up solid image stamps properly).  I'm a convert!

In other news, I was supposed to be running my evening stamp class on Friday 31st August, but unfortunately, I just won't be able to fit that in, with all the pre- Launch preparation to do.  I'm sorry!  I will be scheduling new classes in September, so keep your eyes out for them.

Happy Stamping!
