Last week at Leadership Conference, Stampin' Up! announced that there are going to be some changes in the catalog, again! The current Idea Book & Catalog will run through May 31, 2012 instead of June 30, 2012. This will make way for the new Annual Catalog that will go live on June 1, 2012. They will also be revamping the Mini Catalogs. There will now only be 2 seasonal catalogs (the Holiday Catalog will run from August 1 through the first of January and the Spring Catalog will run from January through May 31).
Both the Holiday Catalog and the Spring Catalog will be bigger, both in size (8 1/2 X 11) and number of pages (40). The Annual Catalog will be bit smaller due to the discontinuation of both the Decor Elements and Simply Adorned lines. Since these two product lines will be discontinued, you only have until May 31 to order any of these items. Most of the seasonal type stamp sets will also be moved to the Holiday and Spring catalogs, meaning more new products in the Annual Catalog.
The Annual Catalog can now be mailed to you just like the Minis were mailed to you in the past. If you would like to be added to my mailing list for the new Annual Catalog, please send me an email no later than April 1.
The other big announcement has to do with a new product; Simply Scored Diagonal Plate. This is an accessory for your Simply Scored scoring tool, developed exclusively for Stampin' Up! that will allow you to score envelopes, boxes and more. This item will be available for you to purchase on March 1.
I am excited about these changes and hope that you are, too! You will have a longer period of time to order from the 2 seasonal catalogs and the new Annual Catalog will have more new products. If you have any questions about these changes, feel free to shoot me an email. Thanks for stopping by!
