The 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! Catalog

Hello Stampers!

It’s that time of year again… the launch of a new SU! catalog.  This year’s catalog is about 40 pages smaller but offers a wide range of stamps to choose from.  A larger mini catalog will come out this August full of holiday sets guaranteed to please!  

SU! has also redesigned their stamp pads.  With the release of the new catalog they are introducing their new firm foam stamp pad! A few things to note: the firm foam is nice and flat and will not become wavy, it is soft and has a nice bounce to it, and the ink lay-down (how the ink is absorbed into the card stock) is even, not blotchy, and dries quickly. It has an increased opacity and stamps solid images beautifully. 
There are more Framelits and Edgelits to make your crafting tasks easier.  I hope you enjoy looking over the catalog as much as I have.  My favorite set… A Cherry on Top – page 201!!! Can’t wait to hear which sets you have fallen for.

Happy Stamping,
