There aren't tons of sets I want BUT I love the way the catalog is set up. Seems more "open" and easier to read. For instance, I immediately saw the Voila set and I NEVER saw it before! And I absolutely have to have it.

I love this catalog! There are so many great sets --granted -- there are some that are not my style, but most are.

I have a fairly eclectic collections already -- so different styles appeal to me.

I'm still not crazy about any of the baby stuff -- maybe because I do not have children. There's just nothing that I'd want to use for a baby card. Maybe I just need to check out the galleries.

It's a bummer that I like it so much -- my main demo (sister) just quit. I do have another demo -- and she's great too. I'm just going to miss all the "inside" stuff and occasional discount!

Yup, me too. My wish list is around $800.
I think I already have 50 sets, including wheels, alphabet, and backgrounds. I put some sets on my wish list - not as many as last year, but as I said, I already have a bunch. And, as others pointed out, this is technically only a half a year's wish list.
I am in love with a lot of the designer papers! I think I want $100 worth of them alone! Add on rhinestone brads, watercolor crayons, ribbon, and there I am at $800.

I must love it!

I definitely like how the accessories are laid out.

Sounds like it's time to become a demo yourself . Then you get a year-round discount plus that nice 30% off your first order (it could be your first new catty order!) Plus you might be able to get some of the items on your wish list with the starter kit.

This is the best catty from SU! that I have EVER seen!!! That is strictly my NSHO! I think its keeping up with the trends, not to mention user friendly. I love how they give you all the coordinating accessories at the bottom of the page. BRAVO SU!!!

There's a lot of stuff I love, definitely. In some ways I'm not totally wowed by it, but then I see other things and I love it. I'm still looking it over, but I'm very interested in some new accessories they have. And the All in the Family set is at the top of my list, I could use that set for years to come.

I love it. Beautiful stamp sets and paper. I went through it one time, making a wish list as I went and it totalled over 500. I know that as I think about it and see what others are doing with the new things, I'll want even more! Yes, there are things that I just don't get, but they are appealing to different styles. I like beautiful, elegant, sophisticated, and victorian themes - plenty in the new catty to make me very happy!

I have only seen it on-line, but one thing that really strikes me (and I love) is that there are many smaller sets that are not quite as expensive as the previous cattys larger sets. I personally love that I can buy some new trendy things without having to invest a fortune. I will probably spend the same amount but have a more variety.

I am with all of those who say if feels like something is missing... I am so used to the feeling of flipping through the 4th or ...8th time and thinking 'oh wow, I didn't see that before, one more for my wish list'!
But, I am hoping as a demo, that my customers may feel that way too, and be very ready to buy the next caty in Jan. when they are not used to buying another one.
I think it is good marketing on the part of SU.
And there are so many wonderful accessories, I can't wait to get my hands on the scallop circle punch!

I love this catty - the samples are FABULOUS IMO - and even tho I'm not all over the sets (still quite a few that I want tho) - the accessories (and the RIBBON!) are gonna keep me going for a good while!

I love this new catty. I was pleasantly surprised...I expected it to be smaller! I love all the new colors....more toward the brights...my kind of colors...the only thing I noticed and wish was a bit different, is that most of the samples are using only the new colors. The samples are awesome but I would still like to see some of the old favorite colors used... I think this catty is overall one of the best I've seen.

As I flipped through the catty, I made it over halfway through before I started finding things that I really wanted. Despite not thinking that I had found much I already have about $300 on my wishlist, so it can't be all that bad, right?

I really like it, too! There's a hostess set I LOVE but I'll have to get to $300--somehow that doesn't seem like it will be a problem all on my own! Anyway, I am a scrapper more than a stamper/card maker. I make cards just with my leftover scraps and once a month with an SU group. So I was very pleased with how nice the papers and embellishments are this time around--GORGEOUS stuff. And I LOVE the office supply look, the new colors, some of the twirls/swirls (though some of the stamps look like EXACT knock-offs of Autumn Leaves), and the Boho Western look. I used to think that CTMH had SU beat by far on the scrapbooking side, but SU has really overtaken them with this catalog in one giant leap! Just my opinion--I'm not a demo for anyone. It's a GREAT catalog. I always tend to stay away from the holiday-specific stamps (except a few for Xmas and Valentine's), so I didn't feel like anything was missing for me. I LOVE that little circle scallop punch. Keep having nightmares that it will be sold out before I can get one in my hot little hands! Though I must say that SU does a great job of keeping items in stock...LOVE the catty...love the textured cardstock. I'm almost wishing we'd see new colors again in December. Gotta LOVE that Wild Wasabi! WOOHOO!

I absolutely love the layout and the samples. I also love all the In Colors. They did a fabulous job with the samples, even though I'm not particularly crazy about most of the new stamp sets. It is a beautiful catalog, and although I won't be buying many new stamp sets, I will probably spend a fortune on everything else.

I LOVE the new catalog and I would be very disappointed in SU if I liked everything because that means they are not satisfying all types of tastes. When I was shopping last week with my daughters, the In colors were everywhere that we shopped.

I think this is the best SU catty ever!! I placed my 1st order last Sunday and can't wait to receive it. I love cutesy and the whole double-line doodle thing so it is perfect for me. Most of the cards I make, I send to my young nieces. I can't wait to see ideas for perfect Princess in the gallery.

I love it, too. I love how easy they made it to find accessories. I love the bars across the bottom of some pages to show us what can go with the stamp sets. I am enjoying the little tips and the beautiful artwork.

I think a lot of it depends on how much you have. When you have over a 100 sets of SU stamps you are a little pickier. Glad to see the scallop punch. My girlfriend is ordering 3 punches. Would have liked to seen some nice Christmas but they are ok.

Of course, I absolutely LOVE their papers.
