2018 New Stamps, Colors, Cards and What's Coming!

Oh, it's been a busy week!  And it is just Tuesday, lol.

It is one of those weeks that I consider a favorite, but it one that is also a lot of work!  It is new catalog week when my demonstrator team gets together to stamp all the new projects that I have ready for them.  I used to do a lot more...as many as 16!....but that just stressed them out.  I am "done" with these 8.  If I get everything ready then I may go back and add one or two more - if they have time to make them all they can - if not - then they can pick their favorites.

Here is a quick video to show them off in person!  Watch it here or on my YouTube channel

I still have space for a couple of more to join us!  If you want to - we can get you signed up quickly and you can come stamp with us!  I am in the Indy area and would be more than happy to send you all of the sign up details.  On the To Do list for the Holiday Catalog stamp time this summer will be adding in some FaceBook live during our time for those of you who are part of the group but are not close enough to be with us!  But if you want to join the team and are not in Indy....you do get the cards and some of the goodies a week or so after the meeting!

Later in May I am also hosting a New Catalog Shoebox Swap for my entire downline and any active Stampin' Up! demonstrator in the area that might want to attend.  If that's you - contact me for details!

 On the video you may have heard me say I am happy to take requests for which of these cards to film next - The ones I have not yet filmed include the Lillypad Lake Bundle, the Tranquil Texture Bundle, Graceful Glass bundle, Pick a Pennant (which features the Stamparatus) and the Sitting Pretty Bundle.  If you have one you would like to see sooner in the rotation - go to the video that is in today's post on YouTube and leave your choice in the comment section!
Creating when the new catalog comes out each spring is always a challenge - making sure to use things that are not retiring....this year added an extra level of brain drain - as I double checked each time to ensure the colors were not part of the revamp!    I have all of the new cardstocks, but few of the new ink colors....so most cards have a new color somewhere, but sometimes art can really stretch those muscles!

None of the pictures today are fabulous.  April showers are hard at work to bring our May flowers.  But I promise when I film each of the projects that I will retake the pictures and you can see the cards in much better light and in close ups!  For now - it is literally a sneak peek!!

I know I have some reader and viewer questions that have come in the last couple of days that I have not yet answered...I will get to you!  I just need to get this event over first and then I will get those knocked out.  Promise!
