Wacky Wednesday

Well, the 24/25 Annual catalog went live on May 1st, this past Wednesday. It is very different than any catalog you have seen and it is getting mixed reviews! All I can say, after looking through and digesting it it for a few weeks now is think of it as a magazine. Think of it not as a store front, but rather a crafting resource. Look through the eyes of a brand new stamper, not as a seasoned stamper. All this may help you digest it all better.

Let’s take a good look at this book.

Welcome to your new Crafting Resource!

Grab a cup of tea to sip, slow down and enjoy all this catalog has to offer!

This catalog has all the same great products, but with a new layout. It is more like a magazine full of tips and ideas rather than a storefront.

Consider this catalog a resource. Within you will find:

-basic card design (pg 22)

-card layout sketches to help spark some creativity when you are stumped (pg 22)

-Color Family Coordination (pg 23)

-a color wheel to help you learn about color theory to help you mix and match color families (pg 132-133)

-products that match to techniques

-Page 3. At the bottom right hand corner of the page you will find icons to help you decipher items throughout the catalog

-Index page 140-141

This year, Stampin’Up! Is giving you more of what YOU want—there are several stamp sets that you can choose a bundle as either a stamp/punch bundle or stamp/die bundle. Which do you prefer most?

Carryover stamp/bundles from older publications can be found all in one section (pages 74-80).

Items that can be difficult to spot:

-Wood Texture Specialty Paper #163770 pg 100

-Textured Mettalic Specialty Paper #163772 pg 110

-Silver Foil Specialty Paper #163387 pg 110

-Wink of Stella pg 111

-Thick Basic White card stock: pg 99

-Stampin’ Blends Natural Tones pg 131

-Stamp Cases pg 95

-Adhesive pg 116-117

You will notice that there are QR codes throughout the catalog. With your phones camera, you can scan these codes to get more information.****Please note***this will bring you to the general Stampin’Up! Website, not mine. If you choose to shop with me, please be sure to look for my name, Kathy Bedell at checkout!

This catalog does not include all offering that SU! has. When shopping, it is best to refer directly to the website for a full selection. This book is designed not to be a catalog, but more of a crafting resource—think crafting magazine.

As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have or if you are having trouble finding your favorite products.

I did a Facebook video on Wednesday where I highlight things in the catalog, share many sample cards, share new classes, Make & Takes and more! It is a long video, but chock full of info! You can watch it on my YouTube Channel Here: https://youtu.be/OSkMz1JtC9s
