Upcoming Catalogue Changes for Stampin' Up! & A Sneak Peek!

Even though today is April Fools Day, this is no joke! Stampin' Up! is making some changes to its catalogues and its catalogue schedule.

First of all the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalogue will run only until the end of May this year as the new annual catalogue goes live on June 1st instead of July 1st (this means you won't have to wait as long to see all the gorgeous new products!!). So mark you calendars!

In a nutshell, starting June 1, 2012, Stampin' Up! will release one annual catalogue, comparable to (but smaller than) the current Idea Book & Catalogue, and two seasonal catalogues, comparable to (but larger than) the current mini catalogues.

Pretty simple, right? Here are the details:

Annual Catalogue
  • The annual catalogue will run from June 1, 2012 through May 31, 2013.
  • The annual catalogue will be reduced from over 240 pages in the current Idea Book & Catalogue to 208 pages.(This is mainly due to the reduction of the Home Decor Vinyl Art and the Jewellry lines)
  • The annual catalogue will be printed on lighter-weight paper.

Seasonal Catalogues
  • The Occasions, Summer, and Holiday Mini Catalogues will be replaced by two seasonal catalogues called the Holiday Catalogue and the Spring Catalogue.  
    • The first Holiday Catalogue will run from August 1, 2012 through the beginning of January, 2013
    • The first Spring Catalogue will run from the beginning of January, 2013 through May 31, 2013.
  • The seasonal catalogues will be larger in both size (8 1/2" x 11") and page count (about 40 pages) than the current mini catalogues. 
So there you have it, annual catalogues that are more environmentally friendly and  seasonal catalogues that are larger (be still my heart!!). I'll have more information in the near future so stay tuned!

AND even better, here's sneak peek of what will be coming in that new catalogue...
These adorable little purses (3" wide at the base, 1 1/4" deep, and 2" high - not including the handle) are made in a snap from the brand-new Petite Purse die!!

Oh, and did I mention that you can purchase this die NOW, during the month of April, along with other selected items that will be in the new catalogue!!! (You can see them all at my Stampin' Up! store)

But before you go, look at some of the extra cute ideas demos have come up with that you can use to dress up your petite purses for special occasions:
Baby Showers or New Moms

Wedding Favours/Shower Favours

Girls Night Out

And just so the men won't feel left out
here's one for Father's Day/Birthdays/Fishing Fiends
(All of these special purses were designed by 
Stampin' Up! demo Cristy Butzen, 
and cased by me!)

I hope that got you excited enough to play with your stamping toys today.

Happy Stamping!
