The New Catalog is Here!!!!!!

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jun 27, 2007 in Other items

Mr. Brown brought me a special package today – two boxes of new Stampin’ Up! catalogs!!!!

Of course, I didn’t really have time to sit and pour through it yesterday as much as I’d like – the kids had swim lessons, I was getting ready for my Stamp-A-Stack, I’m trying to deal with a few issues at church, I just had a whole bunch of eBay items close and I have to ship them out…

And of course my husband didn’t understand.  I told him how excited I was and that I needed to take some time to look at it – he said, “Why?  It’s just stamps and stuff!”.  STAMPS AND STUFF??!!??!!  He really doesn’t get it – but that’s okay.  I don’t understand his obsession with cigars, baseball or golf, either.  :)

My first impressions of the new book?  I LOVE IT!

The thing that I think has improved the most are the samples!  Instead of just showing card after card with a scrapbook page thrown in here and there, they are showing other projects too – lunch tins, boxes, jars, bottles…it reads more like a magazine than a catalog.

I also think they improved the layout tremendously – especially the chart that lists all the inks, cardstock and markers.  They added some little images that make it much clearer what’s available.   The accessories are also much more organized and categorized.

The new stamp sets are great, of course.   And the new selection of patterned paper is FABULOUS!  I think it’s going to be wonderful to have a new catalog in 6 months, too – it keeps things fresh and interesting.

And I’ve started to compile my wish list…it may be a while until I can order everything I want, but I have to be patient, right?  I have a whole 6 months… 😉
