Default Got my new SU catty!

Today! Haven't really looked at it tho. Pretty front, but I don't like the feel of it and of the pages. I like them with the glossy slick pages. Am I the only one that is weird this way?

LOL, no you are not alone in the cover feel issues. Enjoy looking through it! I sure am.

I too am in agrement over the feel of the pages. I don't like it. The weight of the page itself is flimsy to me also. It might be my mind playing tricks but I noticed it when I first held it. (It won't help me save money while I place my orders though!)

I don't have my new catalog yet (Wah!), but tell me that they didn't use that awful, tiny print in the grey color. That was so hard to read in the last one!

I'm picking mine up tonight...can't wait! Everything will be on a wish list because I have to save my pennies. My daughter is getting married in Mexico over Thanksgiving and all my spare change has to go for my trip...but that's ok...it will be fun to look at the catty and I've spent $165.00 in the last month a half, so I have lots of goodies to hold me over!!!!

Sorry, but they did use the grey tiny print again. My eyes are hurting already.

I just got mine, but didn't notice anything different. I guess I was just too excited to notice.

I miss the glossy cover, too. And I REALLY liked the colors on the last cover - this one seems kind of "brownish" all the way through to me. The print is still so hard to read....I have to take off my glasses and put my nose on the page to figure out what it says! I guess that's one downside of being more "mature"!

I agree about the feel of the cattie. I, too noticed it right away. I'm sure SU is trying to save money. The cover just isn't as heavy paperstock as they've used in the past. My cover is already bent up.

Saved SU money. They raised the prices of the sets. Now I need to go have my book specially bound and covers laminated if I need to keep it nice.

A little disappointed!

I got mine yesterday too. It is the same number of pages and exactly the same thickness as the last catty. The pages are the same "satin" finish. But the cover is not a glossy cover stock. It is more matte finish coated paper. I did notice that it is a fraction of an inch wider than the last two catties...I had to adjust my "bookcover" that I put on my current catty every year!

I really like the feel of the new catty ! It feels like soft suede to me . I also love the colors used throughout the catty as well, not to mention that I have a huge wish list to go with it, lol!

I noticed the feel of the cover; fixed it with laminating film I had on hand. In my copy, the pages seem also to be a lighter weight paper; one page is already knicked. And the spine glue was already broken when I opened it. As DeAnna suggested above, it won't prevent me from placing orders. I can still view its contents, including the fabulous samples!

I like the feel of the cover - it's like soft leather but I was very disappointed in the overall catty. Not too much new and what's up with all those itty bitty little cartoon things. Come on designers - you can do better than that. I'm still waiting for the good old days to come back when they did beautiful art stamps like the western ones and the old fashion scenes. I do like the big watch - but overall I only have 3 things on my list. I'm going to order some items from the TAC catty if I can get someone to respond to my emails - yikes - guess I'll have to call the number of their company.

My DD says she feels like she needs to go wash her hands after she touches the cover. Doesn't bother me I am in love with what matters, the stamps, the papers, the ribbons, and on and on and on!!!

The only stamp set that caught my attention was the big Medallion stamp. The rest are not calling out my name. In fact all that I will be ordering this year will be some new punches. My wish list is less than 100 dollars. That has never happened to me.

I am disappointed in the stamps but like the dp and ribbon. I think my personal "style" has evolved, and SU doesn't have much (if anything) that fits me.

Yuck! I can't stand the feel of the new cover. I feel like I have a film left behind on my hands when I touch the catalog.

I really like the new catalog!

I've got a list, not tons of stamp sets, but I am glad a lot of the stamp sets from the previous mini's have made it in!

I love the dp and I like that all the dp doesn't use the in colors!

I really like the in colors and am super excited about the markers!!
