I know you're probably focused on the fact that this weekend is Fourth of July, but in SU!land, another reason to celebrate is the launch of the new 2011-2012 Big Idea Book and Catalog!!
I've included a link on my sidebar so that you can peruse it online, but if you want to get your hands on a copy, just let me know by leaving me a comment. I've been poring over it for days and I still haven't decided which new stamp sets I'm going to purchase first. There are 84 NEW stamp sets!
There's also a NEW Hostess Program! The chart shows you the deal: starting with a $150 order or workshop total, you get $25 to spend AS YOU WISH! Now you can spend those dollars on specially priced Hostess sets, and there are no levels so you can choose any set you want! If you don't favor any of the Hostess sets, you can use your money toward anything you want! And the money you have to spend increases with every $50 additional dollars that your order/workshop tallies!
When you get to $400, you get $65 PLUS you get to choose 1 item and only pay HALF PRICE for it! Been eyeing that Big Shot diecut machine or a set of Stampin' Write Markers? You can get it HALF PRICE--sweet, huh!
There are also five NEW colors for the InColor Collection debuting with this catalog. Pool Party, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, and Wisteria Wonder are beautiful--the picture of the stamp pads doesn't really do them justice!
The greatest thing about the InColor Collection is that the InColors from last year's catalog DIDN'T RETIRE!! InColors are now on a 2-year rotation, and there is word from SU! that some might be incorporated into the permanent color families when their time as ICs concludes. That's FANTASTIC news because now you don't have to be hesitant about adding these to your crafting color options! There are classic stamp pads and refills, adorable ruffled ribbon, card stock in 8.5"x11" and 12"x12" (smooth and textured), patterned Designer Series Paper, Markers, and brads for these colors. WOW! That's a lot of crafting options for something that's "limited edition".
I hope you're as excited as I am about this event this weekend! Don't let the lazy days of summer get away from you. If you schedule a get-together with your friends and let me introduce them to all this fabulous NEWness and your workshop order total $150 or more, I'll GIVE you a stamp pad or a pack of 8.5" x 11" card stock from the new InColor Collection! This is only available for the first 5 people who contact me, so don't overthink this and miss out! You can host a catalog show if you don't live near me. Let me know you're interested and I'll give you all the details.
I have dates available this month and before school starts, so don't delay--book today!
