New Autumn-Winter Mini - with exciting news!

Yes, it's April 1 and you know what that means?!

Aside from April Fools' Day, that is.

A new Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up!, that's what.

Because Stampin' Up! have decided to change the "catalogue year" to September-August (rather than April-March as it has been since they started out in Australia in 2006), they have brought out an interim Mini Catalogue to get us through the long winter months till September.

And there are some real treats in store for you!

In summary (quite a long summary, but there is a lot to tell you):
  • Stampin' Up! now offer the Sizzix Big Shot die cutting system plus a selection of accessories (including some exclusive dies and embossing folders).
  • The stamps in the Mini Catalogue (with one exception*) are now available as either the traditional wood-mounted stamps we have come to know and love, or the new Clear Mount system
  • Three new punches are released in this catalogue, in a new flat body style you have to have! (and can I recommend the Bird Punch - it's to die for).
  • This catalogue also has two new hostess sets, available only until the end of August or while stocks last.
  • We have new colours to play with! Three of the current US "In Colors" have been released in Australia for the duration of this catalogue only - so if you have seen samples of Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo or Soft Suede on American blogs, you can now get your hands on these colours in ribbon, A4 card, ink and refills.
I have already shown you a couple of sneak previews of some of the things that the Big Shot can do here, here and here - and there's so much more! I can't wait until I get my first big order in so I can show you!

A word about the Clear Mount system ... don't imagine for a moment that this means that Stampin' Up! are going to release their stamps as clear polymer - the Clear Mount means exactly that - the mounts themselves are clear. The stamps are the made using same red rubber as always, however they are backed with a cling film which attaches temporarily to clear acrylic blocks (available in various sizes from Stampin' Up!). So your stamps store in a box the same size as a DVD case, and you can fit so many more on your shelves *g*.

*The exception is the Medallion stamp, which because of its size is only available wood mounted.

So contact me today for a copy of your Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue, and don't forget the best way to earn FREE goodies is to host your own workshop!
