I had a great time at Leadership Conference in San Antonio, Texas. Here’s a pic of some of the goodies we got. You gotta love free stuff especially when you can use it for stamping.
The bags this year are practical, reversable and washable and the matching portfolio with the tag that was signed by Shelli is so adorable!
There were several exciting announcements. The most exciting is the new changes to the catalogues. The main catty will be thinner (208 pages), with lighter paper and lower cost for demos. We will also be able to send them out now using the Mailing Selector program. The Mailing Selector will stay open for the entire selling period not just during preorder (yeah!)
The minis won’t be so mini anymore. They’ll still have about 40 pages but they’ll be 8½” x 11” and will still cost demos the same price as they do now. Starting this year, there won’t be a summer mini. The next catty will be the Annual Catalogue which starts June 1 instead of July 1 so we’ll be able to preorder May 1. The Holiday Catalogue period will be Aug 1 to Dec 31 and the Spring Catty period will be from January 1 until May 31.
The Simply Scored Diagonal Plate was an amazing new product that was introduced and some demonstrators were very excited to get one of these from the Prize Patrol. I'll be sending out a flyer with more details to let you know when this product will be available for purchase.
Another big announcement is that Stampin’ Up will be getting rid of a few of their product lines and focusing on paper crafting. The lines they told us about so far are Decor Elements and the Simply Adorned jewellery.
Well that’s it for tonight. Tune in again for more leadership news and some photos of the awesome cards, swaps and projects on display.
