Yes, new catalog, new week! Sometimes life just runs away with you and today I’m back at my desk. Stampin’ Up! has a new catalog (wowsers) and it’s a new week. I hope to take charge once again.
When a new catalog is released it’s time for lots of change here in my stamping space. Flow of thought IDEA: Let’s have a contest for a NAME for my STAMPING SPACE!!! There will be a prize of some sort for the winner. I stole a bedroom when we moved into our new home in Boise Idaho just over three years ago. And I’ve called this room ‘my stamping space’, ‘my stamp room’……but it really deserves something that has a bit more pizzazz. Please leave comments below with your suggestions. I’ll close the “contest” in two weeks from today, May 21st.
Back to stamping business……preparing a dedicated stamping space for a new catalog with its new products. This time ’round our new catalog has also encompassed a color refresh. That means that some regular colors are g-o-n-e and new colors are taking their places. This hasn’t happened for about eight years. If you aren’t a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator it may not be such a big deal but for me, yikes! I’ve had to pull retired color items (card stock, ink, markers, stampin’ blends), stamp sets and supplies. But many I still love! Where to put them! Then in come the new products: card stock, ink, markers, stampin’ blends and more. I’m rather fussy with how I store my products so this takes a bunch of time. And I like labels on everything. More time. But I want to play–I mean stamp and prep for classes–in the middle of the chaos. Definitely crazy time, especially when you’re a one-man-show. Hence I’m way behind on posting and communicating with you. So sorry.
Totally New Colors to the Stampin’ Up! Palette
Returning Colors, Brought Back from Previous Years
2023-2025 In Colors
Back to today and reality. Have you been able to leaf through the new 2023-2024 Annual Catalog yet? Click on the catalog image in the sidebar for an online view. What are your favorite new things? What do you think about the new colors, colors that have been retired, and…….the new 23-25 In Colors. They’re so different from some past In Colors but they’re also right on trend if you check out the colors of cars, furniture, clothing etc.
Would you like a copy of Stampin’ Up!’s new and wonderful 2023-2024 Annual Catalog? Just send me an email (Blythe@StampingWithBlythe.com) with your mailing address and the promise that you’ll make your first (and maybe all) purchase/s from it via me and my Stampin’ Up! store.
Don’t Forget the Contest
Here’s a peek at parts of my very eclectic stamp room. I mentioned a contest for a fun name for the room and I’m asking for your help. These photos were taken today (Sunday, May 7th), mess and all!
I’m looking forward to seeing you again very soon. In the meantime, happy stamping. Make a card, mail it and make someone’s day! You don’t have to have a reason. “Hello” or “Just Because” or many other more generic greetings will fill the bill.
