Grandma's Rocking Chair - May 17, 2015 - What do i think about the New Catalog

Grandma's Rocking Chair - Do you like the new catalog?

I have to say i really love the new Stampin' Up! catalog.  Why?  Well there are so many reasons.
1.  I love the stamps in there.  Last year I wasn't really thrilled with the new stamps, well this year it is a great stamp catalog.  Again I love the Accessories and everything in that area.

The New In-Colors are great at first I didn't think I would like them as they are close to some of the colors we just retired and I was looking for something different, but they grew on me.

The Color Photos don't do them justice.  Watermelon Wonder is a lot brighter and so is Cucumber Crush.  I cried when they got rid of More Mustard but Delightful Dijon is really close. The mint Macaron is a s nice soft sage color and Tip Top Taupe well I love how the name sounds.

So here is a shot of all my pre-order items.  You know if you join my team now you can get these items in your Starter Kit and or in your first 30% off order.


So some of the stamps sets I have already gotten are.

This one is Build A Birthday
Friendly Wishes Stamp Set

I Think You're Great Stamp Set and Notice the Designer Series Paper Bohemian

I think this is my favorite of the pre-order it is called You've Got this.

I love that in the new catalog they have the Designer Series Paper and then you can also buy with it a pack of matching card stock that goes with it. Such as in the Bohemian Card stock pack they have 24 sheets 8 ea of Bermuda Bay, Sahara Sand and Rich Razzleberry.  So you know it matches and you can make more cards and not run out of matching card stock.


Neat Tools and Accessories are my favorite the Bag Punch Board.
It makes three widths of bags and you can make them as tall or short as you want them.  This is the Large Bag.  They even punch the holes.

Then they have what is called Banner Triple Punch - just seeing it in the catalog i thought it cut our triangles but it does so much more.  It makes tails
In three sizes, no more using the square punches for your tails.

They have 8 kits one kit is to make cards plus it comes with a tin to put the cards in.  They also have a kit that makes a paper cake and when you run out of those cake boxes you can make your own as they have a Thinlit for the Big Shot to make your own.

They have new paper for making envelopes not as thick as Designer Series Paper, they have a new weight of Whisper White so you have a stiffer card base and they have what is called a Cotton Paper Assortment which is like tissue paper but thicker.

I really love this new catalog.

If you haven't gotten yours I will be happy to sell you one.  Click here to let me know you want one.

You can order from this catalog on June 2, which means for 1 day you can order from the 14 -15 Catalog, the Occasion Catalog and the 15 -16 Catalog.  So if you want to have an on-line party that is the day to have it.  Click here to get your order ready.
