2015 - 2016 Annual Catalogue Starts Today

Just in case you hadn't noticed, the 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue went live today. You can click on the above photo or the photo in the left-hand column and you will be taken to an electronic copy of the catalogue. You can download a copy and save it to your computer. I have mine saved to my iPad as I can then "flick" through it rather than scroll through it.

Those coming to my Open House on Saturday will receive a FREE copy of the new catalogue in their goody bag. In addition, next week, I will be mailing out FREE copies of the catalogue to those of who couldn't make it to the Open House and who have placed an order with me in the last 6 months.

As I mentioned yesterday, today is a big day because you can order items from all the current catalogues and the retirement list. Choices, choices, choices...

But wait, there is more news to share so don't rush off to check out the new catalogue just yet.

Firstly, the other really exciting bit of news. Those of you interested in joining Stamping' Up! might just want to take advantage of this month's special offer. Join between now and 30 June and in addition to the £130 worth of goodies that you can choose, you can choose an additional 2 stamp sets (of any value) for FREE from the 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue.  You still pay only £99 and can get over £200 worth of goodies if you choose the more expensive wooden stamp sets. You will receive all the normal Stampin' Up! benefits such as the 30% off your first order of £150 or more if placed within 45 days of joining and the ongoing 20% off your orders.

Secondly, there are some price changes in the new catalogue. Orders placed on 2 June (today) will benefit from the "old pricing" even though some items in the 2015-2016 Annual Catalogue have been subject to change.
  • Ink Pads and Refills - there has been no increase on these since 2009 and over time costs have gone up. As from tomorrow, the ink pads will be £6.00 each and the refills will be £3.00 each. The increase in price also affects the Stampin' Write Markers.
  • Extra-large punches - our supplier has increased the cost of these which has resulted in increased prices.
  • Big Shot, cutting pads and crease pads - our supplier has also increased the cost of these which has resulted in increased prices.
  • Embossing Folders - prices have been cut. Thanks to a negotiated cost savings we have been able to reduce the prices on all the Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.
Thirdly, from tomorrow there are changes to the Stampin' Rewards (formerly Hostess Benefits). These are the rewards you receive for spending or holding a party with more than £150 in sales. The new simplified system means that you will receive a set percentage of the sales as your Stampin' Rewards. These Stampin' Rewards can be used to purchase items from the catalogue, including the special Hostess Stamp sets or you can put the rewards towards a Stampin' Up! Starter Kit. Hold a party for you and your friends and you never know, you could earn the Starter Kit for free.

Details of the new Stampin' Rewards are available on page 178 of the new catalogue and as from tomorrow they will also be on my "Ordering" page in the bar above.

Orders over £150 placed today will be entitled to the old style " Hostess Benefits" that can be spent on products in any of the current catalogue including the hostess sets in both catalogues.

Well, that's all the news, so make yourself a drink, find a comfy chair to relax in and go check out the new catalogue. Have fun.
