New Annual Stampin Up! Catalogue is Now Available

It's June 4th and time for the launch of the brand new Stampin' Up 2019-20 Annual Catalogue and Idea Book has finally arrived.  This year's version is called "Creativity Is Calling", and boy is that an appropriate title. 

English Version

Here are just a few samples of the beautiful new suites being offered this catalogue season.  The great thing about this year's suites is you can order as much or as little as you want  by using either a suite number, or bundle number or ordering your items by individual product number.

1.  The Suite:  This is the whole enchildada!  So if you love a Suite and you want it all you just have to put down one product number and you will receive a coordinating selection of products by using one product #. Here's how it works:

Using the Magnolia Lane Suite #152178 as an example (pg. 37) The Magnolia Lane Suite Bundle includes the stamp set and dies bundles at 10% off plus one each of the other items featured in the photos below the Suite Information for a total of $184.25. That may sound like a lot but you are getting:
      • Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set valued at $49.00 (at 10% off)
      • Magnolia Memory Dies valued at $48.00 (at 10% off)
      • Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder valued at $14.00
      • Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper 12 sheets valued at $15.75
      • Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes valued at $17.00
      • Magnolia Lane Memories and More Card Pack valued at $15.00
      • Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack valued at 12.25**
      • Magnolia Lane Cork Embellishments valued at $11.00
      • Stampin' Blends So Saffron Blends Combo Pack valued at $12.00
      • ** on back order until June 24th, 2019 

Magnolia Lane Suite #152178 

2.  The Good Morning Magnolia Bundle:  The bundle consists of the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and the Magnolia Memory Dies and is valued at $87.25 (with 10% off discount).  

There are a total of 12 bundles in this year's catalogue and a listing can be found on page 1 of the Table of Contents .... Let Creativity be Your Guide section. 

Bundle Index:  
Purchase select stamps and coordinating tools together at a bundled discount.  You can find listings for all this years bundles on pages 4 through 11.  There are a total of 29 bundles.  That's huge!

Wish List:

If you're a Canadian resident and plan on placing an on-line order with me and would like a Wish List to help you keep track of things you'd like to order, please contact me with your email address. 

Changes In Format and Products:

Whether you're looking at the hard copy or the PDF version of the catalogue there are some changes you should be aware of.

Wood stamps are gone with the exception of the background stamps.  Both wood and clear mount have been replaced with the new Cling Rubber stamps and Photopolymer.   See page 2 of the catalogue for a full description of stamp styles. 

New InColours:
We have five new InColours that will be available from today through June 3, 2020:  Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Purple Posy*.  Check out page 3 of your catalogue for a Colour Your World Chart or print off your own copy with this PDF version. 

Stampin' Up!s exclusive Colour Collections are arranged in coordinating collections that make it easy to keep track of.  Check out pages 162-164 for stamp pads, markers, re-inkers, coordinated accessories and card stock. 

Colouring Tools:
Weather you like to colour your projects with markers, blends or watercolour pencils, you'll find everything you need on page 179.  Checkout the Watercolour Pigment Crystals that are new this year.  You're going to love them.  So easy to use and the colours of the powders change to the correct ink colours when water is added.  What fun!  

Paper Products: 

  • Designer Series Paper Collections are exquisite and can be found on pages 165 to 167. 
  • Cards and Envelopes and Paper Basics can be found on pages 168-169.
Memories and More:
Everything "journaling/scrapbooking" can be found on pages 170-171.

Projects with Purpose:
Find all-inclusive project kits and Paper Pumpkin on pages 200-203.  Kits are great for those of you who are starting out or for crafters who love having pre-planned projects at hand. 

Packaging/Ribbon and Trim and Embellisments can be found on pages 172 to178  

Big Shot:  You may be aware that Stampin' Up is no longer associated with Sizzix and so will not offer a Big Shot machine at this time.  They are working on their own version of this die cutting/embossing machine, and I'll let you know as soon as it's available.

Cutting and  Embossing: 
Stampin' Up is still featuring Dies and Embossing folders in their product line, but they are reflecting the upcoming changes just in terms of what they are called. See the wide selection on pages 190 to 199. Starting today these are the new terms used to describe previous dies and folders: 

  • Framelits™, Thinlits™, Edgelits™ = Dies
  • Textured Embossing Folder™ = Embossing Folder
  • Textured Impressions Dynamic Embossing Folder = 3 D Embossing Folder
  • Plates, Platforms, etc = Plates Big Shot™ =Any die cutting or embossing machine offered in the future will have a different name. 
Ordering Issues:
Stampin' Up! anticipates that the following products are not available right now and/or at risk for going on backorder soon after the catalog goes live today.
The following products will not be available when the catalog goes live today: 
  • SAIL AWAY TRINKETS (item 149482)
  • PETAL PINK 5/8" (1.6 CM) STRIPED ORGANDY RIBBON (item 149441)

Due to quality issues, the following products are temporarily unavailable for order, either as single items or when combined with other products.
  • BOTANICAL TAGS DIES (item 146824)
Note:  Although not all Purple Posy Classic Stampin’ Pads/Ink Refills were affected, a significant number of these products did not reach Stampin' Up!s quality standards, so a decision was made not to release them yet.  Stampin' Up! is working with the supplier to solve these issues as soon as possible and will post updates to let us know when the problem has been resolved. This process could take two months or longer.

Stampin' Up! recognizes what a huge a disappointment this will be especially because Purple Posy is a new In Color; however, they are very serious about quality and Stampin’ Up! wants to ensure that our demos and customers have the best products possible.

Well that's my catalogue tour for today folks. I hope the information I've provided will help you find your way through the new catalogue.  I'll be featuring videos and some projects that I've been working on in the coming week.  If you have questions please contact me, I'd be happy to answer.  

Remember no matter where you live in Canada, I would be happy to be your demonstrator.  On-Line Shopping is available to you and means that your  orders are delivered directly to you and you can order when you want to.......even in the  middle of the night when you're in your jammies.

Last month I gave you a heads up on the Everything Is Rosy Product Medley   in this post.  This fantastic medley is only available until May 31st or while supplies last.  

The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley includes these exclusive products:

If you're an "Avid Stamper" (you can't live without stamping) why not join my team and save yourself some money.  Hobby Demos get an automatic 20% savings as team members.  And, the Everything Is Rosy Product Medley can be purchased for less if it's added to our Stampin' Up! Start Up Kit. That's right.  

Here's how it works.  If you live in  British Columbia this medley which is valued at $109.00 will cost you $134.29 after tax and shipping are added. However, if you join my team you can get this medley plus an additional $59.00 worth of product of your choice for just $135.00 and you don't have to pay shipping or taxes.

That's such a great deal, even if you decide you don't want to be a demonstrator after your first order (you're under no obligation) and that's all you ever get, the product is yours to keep and you'd gotten a great deal.  What do you say?  Interested?  Contact me to find out more.

Carry Over Stamp Set Changes To Keep in Mind

Switch to Cling Stamps:

Stampin' Up! says effective immediately, stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first). 

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!
