A Sneak Peek and Stampin’ Up! News

Stampin up catalog punch masculine valentine card heart demonstrator sneak peek
I finished my valentine for my darling husband and will be sharing the details and inspiration on tomorrow’s Stampin’ Pretty blog post.  Here’s  a sneak peek (above).  SEE IT NOW:  You can see the full card a day early on my Stampin’ Pretty Facebook Chat Page (be sure to “like” me).

BIG STAMPIN’ UP! NEWS:  Stampin’ Up! announced at the Demonstrator Leadership Conference last month that starting this year, they have eliminated the Summer Mini Catalog.  The future Holiday and Spring Minis will be bigger and last longer (5 months vs. 4, much easier on my brain).  The annual catalog (new In Colors, stamps, designer series paper–woo hoo) will start a month earlier (June 1, 2012) and the Holiday Mini will start a month earlier as well (August 1, 2012–better timing for Halloween and fall projects).  I’m really excited about this simplified schedule!

In addition, the Simply Adorned and D?cor Elements lines will be discontinued when the 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalog retires.  IMPORTANT NOTE:  THE CURRENT IDEA BOOK AND CATALOG WILL EXPIRE ON MAY 31, 2012 NOT JUNE 30, 2012.  Details regarding the retiring stamp and accessories timing will be released at a future date.

NEW SIMPLY SCORED PRODUCT COMING SOON!  Stampin’ Up! has designed the ultimate accessory to the Simply Scored Scoring Tool for making envelopes, boxes and more–the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.  As a demonstrator, I’ll be able to order it later this month and start playing (and sharing, of course).  It will be available for customer purchase March 1!

    Queen Mary I too am a demo hobbyist and find so much news here with our upline. Thank you Mary. Your Valentines card for your hubby is GREAT!!!! Gave me some ideas for my grandsons and my own hubbies cards. Yes I am late making Valentines as usual. Got my grandaughters out early as they live farther away. Again ty Mary for being here to inspire us on. evette k. When will we get our new catalogs?

  4. I have just started subscribing to your blog Mary and I am blown away with what you do. I love it. The colours in this sneak peak are so masculine and fantastic. We do not have the Simply Scored in Australia (yet) fingers crossed we get it soon!!

  5. I saw your hubby valentine before I cam over here. Love it! Another Mary Fish Card to go in my Favorites.

    This morning I remembered your idea of making cards in a way that they could be sent more than once. I like that idea for lots of reasons. Had you considered you and the Pretty Pals doing a round of cards meeting that criteria to give all of us inspiration?

  6. I’m excited about the new catalog plan as well. More time to drool and buy. Love the sneak peek. I like it already!

  7. Mary, it’s so funny, but I get SU news from you before I get it from SU! because I check the website not often enough! (I’m a hobbyist) So thanks for the heads up and I’m off to check out the news!
