After seeing the catalog, I am quite impressed - hard to believe so much retired and it still seems "full".

I know right! I was really surprised to see so many holiday stamps as they had said those would be thinned and mainly in the seasonal catalogs. That one left me scratching my head a bit because I feel there are still a lot....

I have poured through my catalogue, and there are a lot of things I love about it. The layout seems fresher, the samples more interesting.

I find a lot of stamps sets to my taste, although a lot of them resemble what I have from past years.

I don't like that the pages of dies aren't the real size... I thought they usually are or at least I could imagine them better.

I'm still shocked that they took out the beautiful lace edge punch from last year.

I need to see the in colours in person.

And I need to go through it again!

Being a Hobby Demo is GREAT! I love it! LM

I am even kicking around (yikes...for the first time EVER) the idea of signing on as a hobby demo. It's a great deal too! I can customize my demo kit and get $125 for $99. And, I think, my kit ships for FREE! What a deal!!! I really DO NOT particularily want to sell anything, yet I LOVE the products and just want the savings. Even if it's the savings for just this!

Thanks for the info and hope ALL of you waiting get your catties SOON!!!!!!!

I too "LOVE" the TRUST GOD saying stamp set. So many wonderful sayings.

My favorite is Billy Graham's saying.

And I "LOVE" the BLESSING FROM HEAVEN saying stamp set.

I think there are more saying stamp set's that I LOVE!!


To me the layout of the catalog is awesome!


I have to wait till after the 15th of June to do any ordering.

I also love the Trust God set. It is so great. There are 5 sets I have written down on my list but usually whittle that down to a couple when I actually order.

My list is so long that I would have no idea of how to whittle it down. I too love the Trust God set it is number one on my list and also love. love. love the Outer Space set. The wheels also appeal to me this year, I haven't used a wheel in who knows how long.

My catalogue arrived today!!!! My demonstrator sent a little punch out of each color from the new in colors. I do like them very much now that I have seen them in person. The Summer Starfruit is much prettier in person! Really like the Gumball Green too. And the Raspberry Ripple.

My list of maybe stamps: Stylin Snowflake; Cottage windows; Road to happiness; Mr & Mrs.; Great outdoors; By the seashore; A fitting occasion; CLockworks; Daydream medallions; Trust God; and more--my battery on my laptop is dying and I don't have my cord with me.

I'll be back later. Love the new catalogue!

For those that have seen the catalogue, I am wondering about ordering Sincere Salutations on the retired list. OR is there a set in the new catty that would be as good as S.S.?

Thanks,
Shirl

Oh, man, now I have to see this new catalogue what with you all raving about the Trust God set.....Sounds like there are many more to want as well. I am usually a sucker for the two year in color (in Canada we spell it colour) ones too. I think getting the cs and stamp pads is a good deal. Oh my, here I go again........

Have any demonstrators seen and played with the new Stamping Trimmer on page 180? Price isn't bad but would love to know how people have used it feel about it.

Default 2012 Catty has me conflicted??

So it is 5:AM and I just finished about 4 hours pouring over the new catalog. My initial wish list $1045.00 and the bad part about that is my lists never remain just wishes...I'm into gratifying my wishes, so I'll purchase every cent of that in the next month or two. I'm conflicted because I'm not sure if I want to purchase it from my good demo/friend like I always do @ 30% off (volume rebates) and be free and clear or just sign up again to be my own best customer? I signed up a few years ago under a really sweet deal and I quickly went from loving my carefree hobby to being roped into trying to sell things...which I HATE TO DO! As insane as it sounds, I was so ticked with all the strings like being stuck with the starter kit and finding storage for all that crud (order forms, flyers, Definitely Decorative brochures, recruitment folders). I wanted to throw it in the trash, but isn't that like a crafter's kryptonite...to throw away perfectly good supplies? I didn't want to be bothered with the kinda sleazy move like putting the items from the start-up kit up on eBay. I actually love Stampin' UP! and wouldn't want to be involved in anything that might be construed as scamming.

My demo always offers the most tantalizing offers, but I don't even want people to contact me on the chance that they might entice me to do a demonstration where I will undoubtedly go to more trouble and expense than I care to. That is how all the problems began the first time. The bigger my workshop sales...the more stuff I bought in preorders and special offers. Having the ordering system at my fingertips proved to be a bad idea in rural Alaska (yeah, I know the whole state is rural really). Then the whole issue of what you can demonstrate and the idea that I could ever show someone how to do something and not mention the tips and tricks I've learned with truthfully, better things from Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Like I hate to spill the beans, but I just saw a very close rendition of Shelli's exclusive basket and blooms die in the SizzixOutlet.com and that is not the first Sizzix/Ellison die I've seen that closely resembles something that is supposed to be a Stampin' UP! exclusive for a fraction of the cost. So that is what makes me a not so good demo.

The catalog is very tempting eye candy, but I guess my crafter head for business sees some of the things as sort of unnecessary...especially in this economy, when so many people are struggling? What is so nifty about dies to follow the shape of a stamp? Can't you do that with scissors? That used to be the fun part for me? Am I imagining things or are some things just too trendy....another shade of red, puke yellow, coral, blue, and green. I can think of 5 greens going back to Wild Wasabi that aren't that far off shade from each other. The neurotic part is it IS on my wish list and I'll buy it. Yes, sleep....I need sleep Look at it with fresh eyes tomorr...later on today.

Spend roughly $700 and be relatively satiated if not overwhelmed with things I probably don't need or sign up for $99 to be completely out of control and drowning in products forevah? Decisions, decisions!

No we can't order everything out of the new catalog, only a few things. And I don't think the trimmer is going to be available on June 1. I think they've had a delay with it.

I'm going to have to have a long talk with my SU Demo. She's kept very, very quiet. She's teased us with comments like, "you'll love it", and actually showed us the new stamp pad, but is tight lipped on the rest.

I'm sooooo totally jealous that you all have seen so much! LOL - calling my demo today. Gotta find out what this gumball green business is all about.

I don't personally find anything that replaces Sincere Salutations well. There's a new set of sentiments, but has too funky of font for my taste. It's called Sassy Salutations.

Your demo is following the rules set forth by SU. So please do not give her a hard time. Do ask if she has the new catalogs already for her customers, as you would love to have one already.

I've held off in handing off the catalogs to my customers also, the last couple of weeks. I am just now starting to distribute them.

Once you see it, "you'll love it!"

Got my new catalog last night at my demo's house. I attended a monthly class/club. She showed us the new In-Colors; and the new black stamp pad but we didn't get to play with anything new. We couldn't even HAVE the new catty until we were leaving for the night. She didn't want to ruin the club sales for the hostess that month by tempting people with new stuff that can't order yet anyway.

I really like the new catalog. The colors and layout are very appealing. There aren't any stamps sets that are just SCREAMING at me to BUY BUY BUY...but I do like the new Clockworks set and the Daydream Medallions with the matching Framelit Dies. I will probably buy those over the course of the next year.

I mostly plan to invest in a few of the new ink pads. I need to replace my Real Red and Cherry Cobbler. The Perfect Plum and Tempting Turquoise have been reformulated so I may get those ink pads and packs of paper as well. Other than that, I'll probably just wait for the new Mini to see what holiday sets grab my eye and my checkbook!!

Default Hate it

*I have to say up front that I haven't read this whole thread yet. I just popped over here right away after I emailed SU about the new catalog.

For 15+ years I've looked forward to seeing the new catalog when it was released. This morning I looked through maybe 30 pages when I then I started wondering if I should just throw it in the trash right now. I HATE the chopped up pictures of the samples. Why would they do that????????? The samples are a huge part of the appeal. They sell the stamps! What a freakin' waste of ink and paper.

I love my demo, but I think I'll give the catalog back.

I'm so sorry you feel that way The overwhelming response to the new catalog has been very positive. SU is changing a bit which it must do to stay competitive. I love the new catalog personally. I still feel there are TONS of samples! I'm not always so great with change so I was worried Maybe give it some time and see if it grows on you???

Why would they do that????????? The samples are a huge part of the appeal. They sell the stamps! What a freakin' waste of ink and paper.

I love my demo, but I think I'll give the catalog back.
Sorry to hear that the style disappoints you. The company informed us that they were trying to focus in on the details of the projects so that you could get more ideas of how to use the supplies we offer, etc. Not trying to change your mind, just give you the idea behind the change.

I actually really like the new style of the catalog because of the closeups of the samples--I need all the help I can get when trying out a new technique! But there was a mini a year or so back that everyone raved about...but me. So even if this one isn't grabbing you, maybe the fall mini will.

I tend to get more ideas from my demonstrator and the gallery here than the catalog, so maybe that's why I didn't mind this style.

I do wish that the catalog showed larger samples of the printed papers, but I have always felt that way.

Yep! Me too! I don't care for the really small corner folded back and wish I could see more of both pages!!!
