Question Question about the Mini's.

Sorry if this has been already asked. I received my Spring Mini in the mail and noticed it runs through June 30. The new big catty comes out July 1. Will a Summer Mini also come out July 1? Not sure I can afford two new catalogs coming out at the same time.

This year there will be no summer mini - with the new catalog format there needed to be something old that gave to make way for the new so too many things were not coming out at once. This is the last of the 'old' style minis, with the release of the new catalog in July - all releases will then be based on the new system.

The new mini, which we knew as a SPRING MINI will be called the Occasions Mini Collection in the future. It will run this year from March 1 to June 30. The new Idea and Catalog book - Fall and Winter Collection will come out July 1 and run until December 31st.

There will be another mini this year, called the HOLIDAY COLLECTION that will run Sept - November. Then the 2nd Idea and Catalog Book - Spring/Summer Collections from Jan 1, 2008 to June 2008.

We are told that there will be a SAB next year, but and I quote:
" Sell-a-Bration will NOT be held in Jan-Feb 2008. But don't worry - it's not going away! It just will be held at different times in the year."

Just a little correction - the new "Occasions Mini" will run NEXT year in March, April, and May. This year we still have the Spring Mini. There will not be a Summer Mini, but the new Fall/Winter Collection IB&C will debut July 1, then the Holiday Mini will come out for September, October, and November. January 1 the Spring/Summer Collection IB&C will debut.

Well, Im glad SU is doing something different, cause by this time every year, I have a hard time meeting my 15.00 club quote, cause I have everything I want, and honestly, Im haven't been to crazy about the mini's, it seems SU is going more towards froofy, and thats not me.

Im hope new styles will come out that aren't so Froofy!

Different times? As in plural? As in (maybe!) more than one SAB?

I'm in trouble!

Really?? Well very interesting and very exciting. I would love to have SAB more than once (not saying it is, just thinking of the possibility). But even if it is just once, I am glad that it will be at a different time of year. I just hope that we have it sometime this year and don't have to wait one year plus however many months after that to make it a different time of year. I am still waiting for my demo to get in the spring mini so I can see it in person. I saw it on line and it looks like it has a lot of cute stuff but I am one to have to put my hands on the catalog before purchasing.

I don't personally think there will be more than 1 SAB in a calendar year. I just think they meant it would not be at the same time each year.

And yes, I did not think my post thru, it is still the Spring Mini this year, and the name change does not start until next year. Sorry for the misinformation.

Sorry to ask this but am a newbie and all...When the new July catalog comes out will the stamps from the idea catalog still be available? I know the Winter Mini and SAB ends on Feb. 26 or 28.

When the new catalogue/idea book comes out there will be many stamp sets that will retire. They will publish a list and let you know ahead of time what is retiring and what isn't. Hope that answers your question.

Thanks J-Bo! Have a list of stamps I still want from the catty but want to wait as there *might* be freebies or nice offers when the new catties come out.

I've never known them to offer a 'deal' on retiring sets. They usually run out pretty quickly.

oops. I meant I have a list of stamps I still want just in case I don't meet the $$$ quote to get freebies or something. With SAB you get free sets every $50, I am hoping they might have a new promo/special offers or something. Did I make sense?

when does the list for the retiring stamps come out? i'm so excited about the new catalog. i agree with the description of the mini's. normally there's always at LEAST two sets that i want, but stampin' up has saved me some serious cash on their latest releases. i was looking through some old mini's and they had much better stuff in previous years. just my 2 cents... none the less, i can't wait to see the new catty! i think last years had the most beautiful cover!!

I think the retiring list comes out on May 1? Not sure of the exact date but if you hang out on SCS you'll see it right away. What you won't know is which sets from the minis are NOT going to be available any longer. The idea is that if you want a set from a mini catalog, buy it as only some of them make the big catalog.

A demo also told me that there would be NO SAB at all in 2008 and that it would start up again in 2009, but not in the beginning of the year. I hope that is wrong as I got hooked on SU because of my first SAB.

Me too Joan. I went to my first ever SU! party in Feb. two years ago. SAB is what got me hooked. It always forces me to spend more money too. Like this last time, I really didn't need anything. I had enough paper and all the stamp sets I wanted for now. I ended up placing a $150.00 order of stuff I didn't really need just to get 3 of the SAB sets. Maybe not having a SAB in 2008 will be good for my pocketbook. I am excited about all the new changes whatever they end up being, just as long as they keep making new cute stamps, I'm happy.

Joan,I am not sure where that demo heard that there would be no SAB in 2008. We have not been told that at all. Here is the SAB section of the Q&A from the Feb SS:

Q: How does Sell-A-Bration fit into
the schedule?

A: Sell-A-Bration was designed to spur sales
during a traditionally slow time. We
believe the Spring/Summer Collection
will boost sales in January and February.
For this reason, Sell-A-Bration will not
be held in January–February 2008.
But don’t worry—it’s not going away!
We know how much customers look
forward to this promotion, and we’ll
continue to offer it, although it may be
held at different times each year. The
Sell-A-Bration brochure will continue to
be offered along with the promotion.

Q: What should I tell my customers about
Sell-A-Bration?

A: Let them know that Stampin’ Up! will
continue to offer the promotion, and
there will be plenty of advance notice
about when it will be held.

Concerning the Catalogs....This was in the Demo Magazine...

There will be a retirement list from the current catty on June 1, 2007

New Fall-Winter Catalog July 1 through December 31, 2007
**Collection Preview June 1!
**Retirement list from this catalog on December 1, 2007
**Holiday Mini Collection September 1 through November 30, 2007

New Spring-Summer Catalog January 1 through June 30, 2008
**Collection Preview December 1!
**Retirement list from this catalog on June 1, 2008
**Occasions Mini Collection March 1 through May 31, 2008

A few notes about this schedule...
**There will be new hostess sets TWICE a year!
**Twice the inspiration ideas!
**Only one set of In Color products per year...introduced in Fall/Winter catty.
**Two retirement lists per year.
**Some stamp sets will not appear in some catalogs, even though they may be ordered...for example, fall or halloween images may not be in the Spring/Summer catalog, even though they are NOT retired, and can still be ordered. A listing of stampsets that are not retired but still available will be on the website.
**Sell-A-Bration will continue...at different times each year...and there will be PLENTY of advance notice!
**Catalogs will be 208 pages...but because of printing cost increases, the cost will not change.

Hope that helps!
