Winter Mini Spoiler
Have you seen this? Totally awesome! The biggest excitement for me was we are going to carry gingham plaid in different colors and the famous black and white! Yahoo! :lol: Here's what I got from Marci Hill on a Yahoo!Group:

Ok, ladies. Here's my "rundown" of the Winter Mini... Stop reading if you want to wait for yours!! :-)

HA set is called "Occassionally". It reminds me of the Bold Shapes set, where the ink is on the background of the stamp and the image is actually the color paper you used. Anyway, it has wedding bells, a party hat, a phone, an alarm clock, a heart, Rx bottle with a flower in it, a baby face, and a flower.

As for the stamp sets, there's another called "Office Ephemera" that has the aged, great for Heritage pages kind of feel... I hope that makes sense...

A great set called "Mon Ami", set of 4, and has 3 hearts with different "fill in" images (One says "mon ami" repeated, one has different words like adore, tenderness, affection, love etc across the heart, and one with a distressed type solid heart with "amour" across it). There is also a square stamp with the heart cut out, and a big "L" in the middle .

Oh, and we're getting gingham ribbon!! Lt pink, Lt blue, red and black are in the mini.
The stampin guide is called the "stampin around wheel guide". It looks like 2 clear rulers that can attatch to make a long guide to run the wheel against to make straight lines. It has rubber feet so that it wont slide around.

"Bundle up" stamp set has an ice skate, winter hat, sweater, mittens, "brrr..." snowflakes, and a border type stamp with a checkerboard pattern that has snowflake/astricks on them.

"Going Out in Style" is perfect for the Red Hat society groups... It has 3 different hats, a picture of a lady with a hat & boa, and 3 phrases: "Boa Babe" "Hats off!" and (one of my favorite quotes..) "Well behaved women rarely make history - LT Ulrich". This also has a matching jumbo wheel with hats.

Vintage Brads are back again, and will also be in the new IB&C.

"Catchin Air" set of 2 has a snowboarder and "catchin Air" in kind of a whispy font so it looks like it's being blown by the wind.

"Poetry in Motion" is a set of 4 for gymnastics & dance. Has 3 of ladies doing gymnastics, and a phrase "The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure."

"Prehistoric Party" is a birthday dinosaur set. "Toucan of My Love" has a toucan with a heart and says "a little toucan of my friendship", a kangaroo that says happy valentines day, a fish with heart air bubbles, and says "you're fin-tastic!", a to/from stamp, "here's a treat 'cause you're so sweet!" and "Happy Valentines Day!"

"More Petal Prints" Yep!! just what it sounds like!! a set of 3 in the same style as the original...

"Love is in the air" has a background stamp of "xoxoxox", a tiny tag that says love, 3 heart stamps, LOVE spelled out on hearts, and a flower stem and flower.

New "Alphahearts" and "Alphaheart numbers" with hearts instead of circles like the Alphadots...

Jumbo wheel called "Fine Foliage"

"Flower Factory" set of 13 with different flowers and leaves.

"Collage Alphabet" & "Collage Alphabet Numbers" have a great 'distressed' feel to them...

a new "Canvas" background stamp

"See with the heart" is another heritage type set

and "Curvy Verses" is a set of 8 phrases, all on curved lines.

I hope this will be on the website soon. My discriptions just don't do them justice!!

I'm so excited! I know what I'm getting for Christmas!

10-23-2004 04:47 PM

Sounds great - can hardly wait to see thhe new mini!!

sscrappystamper 10-23-2004 04:52 PM

WOW!!! How did you see the mini alreadY? I have been checking the website just chomping at the bit to see it! Does this mean it has gone out already? :wink: Thanks for the update! I can hardly wait!

jan.stamp 10-23-2004 04:58 PM

I received mine today and I'm totally pysched!!!! There are soooo many great new sets and of course the ribbon, woohoo the ribbon. Usually I find one or two sets that I might buy-- but in this mini I HAVE TO HAVE almost all of them!!! :)

YvettesArts 10-23-2004 05:01 PM

I always get mine a week after everyone. I must be far from the publsiher or something. I cannot wait to get it!

albrennick 10-23-2004 05:20 PM

ooooohhhhhhh, they sound so FUN!!! Can hardly wait! Nice to always have something to look forward to.

Thanks for the information!!


veramats 10-23-2004 05:40 PM

I saw one of the new sets at my upline who received it at the spa weekend for the Founders Circle group in Sept. They all received the winter set.

I'm a relatively new demo. When do they send out the mini's? Do we get our copies more than a month in advance?

Gingham! Halleluiah! Now if only we can get gingham paper!


Kim Lee 10-23-2004 05:40 PM

I received my mini catalog on Friday. I just loved curvy curves and the wheel roller guide. Even though I probably won't be ordering the snowboarding and gymnastics sets since they do not relate to me or my customers, I am really impressed that Stampin' Up listened to our requests. I read so many posts on the SU board of people wanting these sets. I think that they try hard as a company to hear our requests as demonstrators and offer a variety of styles. Personally, I was more pleased with the sets in the Holiday Mini and a little diappointed in many of the new sets but there were a few that I liked. Only 1 that I really loved! But I am always optimistic and realize that many people like a variety of different things, I just know that there are not many that my customers will like as I have already shown the catalog to a few and they didn't see much that they really liked. Who knows, after I see all of the great samples, I will probably chage my mind about a few of them. Love to hear other people's input as you receive your Mini Catalog soon and wanted to give a word of thanks to SU for listening to requests. That is why we need to continue to offer input when we have ideas and requests because I think that SU really tries to please us whenever possible.

purplewinkle 10-23-2004 06:32 PM

waHOOOO! I am so excited about the gingham, I second the notion that we should get gingham paper, or how about a gingham background stamp? I would love that you could have it in any color!

I love the roller guide, I think I don't wheel because I can't line it up straight.

The sets sound wonderful, I can't wait to see them.

Thanks so much for the info.

stampintree 10-23-2004 06:54 PM

Is there a hat set in the mini? I have just met my minimum right there. Red Hat Society members just buy up that stuff! Can't wait to pre-order and make up some samples! I'm in Florida and I haven't seen the new mini catty either! They must go west to east or something. Can't wait!

ReindeerTrout 10-23-2004 07:04 PM

Holy moly! Sounds like lots of VERY cool stuff this time. I, too, usually only find 1 or 2 sets in a mini that I like... this one sounds dangerous!

CherylP29 10-23-2004 07:44 PM

I got my mini on Friday and I just love it. It is one of there best one that they have had in awhile. There is a hat stamp set perfect for Red Hat People. I just love the whole thing and can't wait for the preorder and share them with our customers. Yeah!

Pagemaster 10-23-2004 07:45 PM

Yes, There is a new hat set (looks to be designed for Red Hat society) and it has a matching jumbo wheel. The wheel matches the hat set, but I think it would be cute for scrapbook pages of little girls playing dress up.

ReindeerTrout 10-23-2004 07:51 PM

That set is more than "Red Hat" though... the Sweet Potato Queens have adopted that saying about well-behaved women rarely make history... I'm guessing that we will sell a BUNCH of this set to SPQs! Now if we could just get SU to make a stamp of their most favorite saying, "Never wear panties to a party!" lol

dylbrett 10-23-2004 07:51 PM

Ohhh, can't wait to see the new mini. I hope it comes soon. It sounds wonderfull.

This topic was/is in the DEMo only forum and should prob. stay there
just a thought
Why we can all be excited too!! Now I will wait to buy my gingham ribbon till the winter mini comes out. Was just going to order some from another company.

rachelbenj 10-24-2004 03:33 AM

I am so excited about a hat set. I was just about to so to a Stamp store and buy "another brand".......I know that that is bad!!! My M-I-L loves the Red Hat Society, and I was going to make her some cards for Christmas. Now I can make them with my beloved SU stamp instead. :D

sahm_i_am 10-24-2004 05:34 AM

No, this topic should stay in General Discussion so EVERYONE can get soooo excited about the mini. WHy not? Some have already said they are going to wait to order. Woohoo for their demos!

I can't wait to get mine, but in NC us demos are always one of the last to get it. Boo hoo! Thank goodness for spoilers.

heart 10-24-2004 05:43 AM

Thanks for sharing!
Now my tummy is doing flip-flops with excittement!
Will be attacking the mail box every day till mine comes!

GnarlyGirl 10-24-2004 06:54 AM

I am sooo excited about the winter mini but I gotta say, you gals are tortuing me!!!!!!!!! I am already an impatient person who hates surprises but even more than that, I hate knowing about the mini without actually seeing it. :) I am so glad to be a demo because I get my mini next week. I think I would go absolutely insane if I had to wait another month to see it :) And, don't tell me not to read the spoilers...I just don't have that much will power to pass by it....

Michelle Laycock 10-24-2004 07:07 AM

Ohhhh!!!!!! More $$$ will be spent in this household on stamps with this mini catty!!!!!

Thanks to this post, I have started making a list of "wants" even before I've seen the catty!!!!!

Gingham!!!! Whooo Hooo!!!!!

TammyJo 10-24-2004 07:50 AM

What are the dates for the mini catalog? I'm going to a party on Nov 13 and was wondering if I can order from it then.

sahm_i_am 10-24-2004 08:20 AM

Mini Catalog Dates:
Nov. 1 Free winter mini mailed to demos
Nov. 1 - 30 Demos can pre-order sets
Nov. 15 Winter mini mailed to customers
Dec. 1 - Feb 28 Winter mini sales period

December 1 Free Sell-A-Bration brochure mailed to demos!
Dec. 1 - 29 Demos can pre-order SAB sets.

Woo hoo! Dates I just love to put on my calendar!

stampintree 10-24-2004 10:34 AM

Not thread jacking, but what are Sweet Potato Queens?

So, is that how things get sent out - west coast to east coast? I hope my mini is in the mail Monday. Now I have to go and change my order so I'll have some money for pre-ordering sets.

I'm so glad all my busy stuff is over! I've got 6 hostesses to be waiting on me! Thanks for giving me a good reason for December workshops! But, I too sometimes hold off in December so that hostesses can take advantage of Sellabration stuff. Sounds like some good winter stamping!

Laurie FW 10-25-2004 09:44 PM

I appreciate you keeping this thread so I can view it! I would rather buy my ribbon from SU, even though I am not a demo! I really wanted the vintage brads, too, but can't really afford to get them by Nov. 30th, so it helps me out a lot to know I can still get them past then! Thank you thank you thank you! This is actually great for you demos, it just gets us nondemos more excited and builds our anticipation so we will buy buy buy!!

dslocum 10-26-2004 10:03 AM

Any more sightings of the Winter Mini, I'm in Michigan and I don't have mine yet ;-(

musicmarth 10-26-2004 10:37 AM

And my demo just told me she has enough customers that we'll all get the mini mailed to us? Oh, my gosh...I am giddy with excitement.

My social club from college had a French theme...Paris in the Spring is great for me to make cards and send to the current members. I'm loving the sound of the new one!


janicemarz 10-26-2004 10:47 AM

can't wait to get the mail!!
Hopefully mine came today too...

I just can't seem to stop buying...its a disease! But I LOVE IT!!!!

seaowl60 10-26-2004 11:12 AM

I really like the expanded mini-catalog idea and can see I'm going to go just as spending crazy with this new winter one as I did with the Christmas mini. Lord have mercy, I am wondering if I will ever run out of sets that I simply MUST HAVE!!

witty5 10-26-2004 11:36 AM

I'm on the East Coast - PA - any one over here get your mini yet?

I run to the mailbox everyday, only to be crushed yet again!

ambercripe 10-26-2004 11:49 AM

I am STILL waiting on my Mini....waaaaaa
It will get here, I just can't wait!

Lisa Lisa 10-26-2004 11:50 AM

Did you all see that the Gingam ribbon and wheel guid WILL be in the Big Catty next year!!! and future mini cattys! sorry if someone already said it!

NiceRAK 10-26-2004 12:11 PM

I got my mini today!!! WOO HOO!!!
course this is going to put a dent in my savings for Convention...hmm...

rubadubdub 10-26-2004 12:14 PM

Just pulled mine out of the mailbox. . .
. . . I love how there is a phrase set designed to coordinate with the hostess set, and there is a whole page devoted to the four color families while promoting the main catalog!

makeminepink 10-26-2004 12:33 PM

Anyone in Illinois get their mini yet?

theresalaird 10-26-2004 12:34 PM

Winter catty
Ok! I can see this is going to get ugly for me. Just judging by the descriptions(don't have my catty yet), I already want 10 SETS!!! That does not include the ribbon. Heaven Help me. My husband is NOT going to like me! Incase some ladies might of forgotten, SAB is right around the corner. I'm going to wait to make a $50 purchase (more like $100) during SAB and get 1 or 2 more sets free. Yeah!


mhthorpe 10-26-2004 02:22 PM

I still haven't gotten mine. Am I the only one now?

kastampin 10-26-2004 02:32 PM

Where did you see that the gingam ribbon and roller guide are going to be in the New Big Catty? If they are you would think that the paper would be to.

I am in Michigan and have not gotten my winter mini either!! Bummer now I really can't wait. I have a few customers that belong to the Red Hat club. They will be so EXCITED!! I will be showing them ASAP!!

dbeattie 10-26-2004 02:38 PM

I hate to sound like a moron but what is The Red Hat Society?????????
