New Catalogue

May 28, 2018

Last Saturday I was joined by 20 or so of my customers and my downline to launch the new Annual Catalogue.  I usually don’t hold this event until June, but my personal obligations were getting in the way of that, so I held the event early.  At least this way the ladies have nearly a week to browse the catalogue and compile their wish lists.  I try to show off some cards using the stamp sets and dies that I have purchased on pre-order and of course the new in-colours.  It was a fun afternoon and I am most grateful to these lovely ladies for the continuing success of my business.  The ladies were able to have tea, coffee or a glass of light wine while they browsed their catalogue and ooohed and aaahed over the new products.  I like to show my appreciation by giving them some extra goodies if I can when I hold this event.  This year I gave each of them a sample of cardstock for all the revamped colour families.  I think these will be a great tool for them to get an idea of how the new  colours will work with the colours that they already have.  I also gave them chocolate to nibble on while they browse the new catalogue.  The colour chart and chocolate was given in little gift bags I created using the Gift Bag Punch Board, which also helped use up some of my Designer Series Paper stash.

For my lovely downline I also created a colour swatch using the template that Stampin’ Up! provided to demonstrators with a few colour combinations for each of the colours in our new revamped colour families.  They got an extra gift or two also in their bags as well as chocolate (you must have chocolate).  Their gift bags were a little larger than the others and also used up some of my Designer Series Paper stash.

As you know I am on a mission to use up the retired and retiring designer series paper, so I gave each of the ladies a 12″ x 12″ one sheet wonder template and a couple of pieces of 12″ x 12″ dsp to have a go at completing a set of cards.  I hope that they enjoy playing and that they will bring their samples along to our next class.

To help me and my customers and also to be portable I used one of the 6″ x 8″ Memories and More Albums and the co-ordinating pocket pages to keep examples of the new colour families and colour combinations.  This album will also contain examples of the embossing folders that I have to show to my customers and also pages with pieces of the designer series paper that I have on hand.  I am also going to add templates at the back for use in my Stamparatus.

Before everyone went home I did a demonstration of some of the things that you can do with the Stamparatus.  I showed them how to create a wreath and to do step stamping and also how you can create a template and then stamp hundreds of labels or greetings easily and quickly.  They all loved the Stamparatus and also the lovely new Simply Shammy which makes cleaning stamps on the Stamparatus and the Stamparatus plates too.

I had a lovely time and I hope that they all did too.  Sorry for the long post and so many pictures but I did want to share with you the excitement that is building towards the day when we can order from the new catalogue.

Bye for now,
