I have so many things to share with you today but I’ll start with a little update, whilst you have been enjoying Christmas projects I’ve been on my holidays to sunny Malta, it’s been wonderfully warm, 35 degrees everyday, the hotel and pool as always (we’ve visited 8-9 times) was amazing and I managed to read 5 books. So I think I’ve come home rested !!
Tonight and tomorrow morning are Card Club, I still have space if you would like to attend but please call or email me to book your place so I have enough projects prepared for you, see here for more details.
So onto the news, Stampin’ Up! UK have announced a new catalogue strategy which will mean we are getting 2 seasonal catalogues a year and the date of the annual catalogue launch for 2013 will be changed. Stampin’ Up! UK are bringing our catalogue in line with the American catalogue. What that means in terms of stamps is an extra 110 pages of products……..wow !
This is how it’s all going to work,
1st September 2012
NEW Autumn/ Winter Stampin’ Up! UK catalogue is launched it will run until the end of January 2013, it is almost A4 in size, 40 pages and has some wonderful Halloween, Autumn and Christmas sets in it, and for those of you that LOVE cookies, we have something for you too!
Last Chance list is published, this is a list of all of the stamp sets and products that aren’t going to make it into the new main catalogue, some years we have discounted products but not every year, this will be your last opportunity to get hold of them, once they are gone, they are GONE!
1st October 2012
NEW Annual Stampin’ Up! UK catalogue, this will run until the 30th June 2012, so for only 9 months. 204 pages of products, I haven’t seen it yet but it will be very close to the American catalogue.
