The first bit of news that I have to share is the winner of my June contest! A big congrats to Clythie; she is the big winner of the Escape Bundle (see post below)! Thank you to all who entered.
The next bit of exicting news I have to share is that the new Fall-Winter catalog is almost here! The new catalog will begin August 11, 2008. This means that you only have until August 10th to purchase all of the retiring stamp sets and accessories! The retiring accessories list will be released July 21st, but the retiring stamp set list is here.
We have also been told that all of the new stamp sets will be die cut! This means that you will not need to cut/trim your rubber stamps before you can begin stamping! This will make stamping even more fun and enjoyable. Here is a quote from Stampin’ Up! regarding the new die cut stamps:
When it comes to quality stamp sets, Stampin’ Up! has been an industry leader for several years. Our original, exclusive stamps have earned the prestigious Creating Keepsakes Readers’ Choice Award for best rubber stamps eight years in a row, and every year we work to make them even better!
We’re excited to announce that all new stamp sets in the Fall-Winter 2008 Idea Book & Catalog (including new hostess sets) will be die cut for your convenience! We know you enjoy the flexibility of custom mounting your stamps, and with these die-cut sets, all you’ll need to do is pop, peel, and place before you begin stamping.
Only our new stamps will be die cut; sets carried over from the last catalog and those on the dormant list will still require trimming. But, each new set will feature a die cut icon so you will have no problems identifying die-cut sets.
The third bit of news I have to share withyou today is current Hodgepodge Hardware Sale! Each of the Hodgepodge Hardware sets are 25% off and are only available while supplies last. These sets will be retired with our current catalog, so that means you only have until August 10th to get them (unless they sell out earlier)! These sets are featured on page 188 of the Spring-Summer catalog.
