Pink & Gray Blossom

I'm really enjoying the new products in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  For this card, I used the new Twitterpated DSP, the Mixed Bunch stamp set and Blossom punch...all new products! 

Speaking of catalogs, Stampin' Up! is making some great changes to our catalog program.  The 2012-13 catalog will go "live" June 1st (rather than July 1st).  The catalog will be slightly smaller (about 40 pages) partially due to the discontinuation of the Decor Elements and Simply Adorned product lines.  Personally, I'm really happy about this change because Stampin' Up! is focusing on paper crafting only.

Going forward, we will have two smaller catalogs throughout the year.  They'll have more products than the current minis.  I'm excited that the "Holiday Catalog" will go "live" August 1st which is a month earlier than the previous Holiday Mini.  That gives everyone another month to get prepared for the holidays.  The "Spring Catalog" will go "live" in January 2013 and will run through May 2013.  We will no longer have a summer catalog...instead, we'll be able to focus on the annual catalog during the summer. 

This year, because of the transition, our current IB&C will end May 31st rather than June 30th.  The current Occasions Mini will end April 30th.

Stampin' Up! is always striving to meet the needs of customers and demos.  That's why I'm so glad to be affiliated with them.  If you have ANY questions about these changes, just ask me!
