Pin It Now! Stampin' Up! is changing the catalog system! Although change can be hard, I'm actually super excited about this. But, I wanted to make sure you had plenty of time to get used to the changes before they go into effect. :)
FIRST MAJOR CHANGE: No more Summer Mini Catalog. I know, I know...but really, it was only out for a little while every year before everyone forgot about it in the excitement over the big catalog coming out in July, so I don't think we will really miss it. Trust me, OK? :D
SECOND MAJOR CHANGE: The big catalog is going to retire at the end of MAY, not JUNE like the front says. Yup - we will be getting our Annual Catalogs (that's the new name, by the way - Annual Catalog) a month early!! AND it will be cheaper than the $10 it has been in the past! The catalog period will be June 1 - May 31. So look for retirement lists at the first of May. THIS ALSO MEANS that the 2011 In Colors will be retiring a month early if you need anything from those collections.
THIRD MAJOR CHANGE: Stampin' Up! has decided the refocus on papercrafting, so they will be getting rid of some lines that are not big sellers, starting with the Simply Adorned Jewelry Line and the Simply Decorative Wall Art Line. If you need anything from those lines, I am predicting they will start selling out fast, AND become overpriced collector's items on ebay. Just sayin'.
FOURTH MAJOR CHANGE: There will be two larger seasonal catalogs, 8 1/2x 11", called the Spring Catalog and the Holiday Catalog, and the duration of each catalog will be longer.
There may be more as more information comes available. I am happy to answer any questions you may have!
