Stampin’ Up! New Annual Catalogue Pootles’ Picks

Stampin’ Up! New Annual Catalogue Pootles’ Picks

Well I am very excited to bring this video to you today! Yesterday our brand new Annual Catalogue went live and so I decided to film a video a few days ago of the things that had caught my eye.

As a Demonstrator, I get to shop from a selection of items a month early, but the same as everyone else, I have to wait to shop the rest of the catalogue on the same day that you do.

So because I’ve had my catalogue since the start of April when I flew to Amsterdam for OnStage Live, I’ve been reading it and rereading it over and over again!

I’ve got some stand out stars of the show, but wanted to share them with you. Too often, I wait to share things as I have a video ready, but lots of people have been sharing their wish lists with me since they received their copies of the catalogue from me, so I thought it would be fun to share my wish list too!

The Planner is a definite must have. I work to a daily schedule and that’s how I plan and work and have done for years now. I break my day down into 30 minute chunks, plus I have to work around school runs and Chris working shifts. So having dedicated half hour slots works the best for me. And getting to co-ordinate it all in a beautiful diary will make me very happy!!!

You all know that I’m a paper girl and that I love embellishments, so it’s a bit of a given that they’ll all be making their way into my shopping basket at some point in time….

There’s a beautiful word set called Special Celebrations that’s caught my eye. I love it!

So many flowers! For a girl who wasn’t floral at all before joining Stampin’ Up! the last 4 years have totally persuaded me onto them!

Oh my, the Coffee Break Suite! That’s going straight into my shopping basket, in it’s entirety. And possibly elements may be duplicated….

This Little Piggy, since a few demos received it as a prize at On Stage, has swept across Pinterest. So cute!

The Foil Frenzy Suite is stunning. I was fortunate enough to see it up close and personal and the foiling is divine. Think Kraft Card with coloured foil detailing. Divine! And that matching stamp set! Oh my WOW! The swirls and whirls. Gorgeous!

Home Life is that great floral stamp set that’s designed to fit inside a house die cut. Oh how much fun can we have with that set?

I could go on longer, but I hope the video will help you out a bit with the things that have caught my eye. I know that the more I see things that others have created, the more I shall shop…. And therein lies one of the greatest perks of being a demonstrator. Discounted crafting yumminess!

  1. I loved that you shared your thoughts on the catalog! Thank you Sam. I hope you do a video on the planner soon! I want to order it, but did not. One final note…I loved your post it flags that were printed with words! I have not seen those here in USA and plan to look for them, likely on Amazon! 🙂
