Live from Convention!

Quick post from the Stampin' Up! Convention...Having a great time! New catalog is amazing! You'll love it! I wish I had thought to bring my catalog to the hotel computer with me so I could give a thorough update.

Several items from the last two minis made it in, including Tart & Tangy and Summer Picnic DSP, the pumpkin set, snowflake set, and mini library clips from the last Holiday mini. The Style Watch Collections are very pretty. Several cool silhouette images. There's a new square scallop punch, large 1 3/4" circle punch, and large oval punch. No ribbon originals, but some really cool additions include Riding Hood Red taffeta, 7/8" wide So Saffron twill, 1 1/4" Pirouette Pink grosgrain, 1/4" grosgrain in Rose Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, and maybe another color or two. The In Color ribbons have two white stripes down the middle. The old striped ribbon in Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, and Real Red stayed. New Styled hardware in silver (from mini) and vanilla. The new "punch box" is not a box, just the punch and stamp set, no inks. Nice because it lowers the price to around $33. The punch is a label (the bracket kind similar to the new nestibilities that are coming out). Nice selection of new silver brads in different shapes. Flower Fusion stayed, and Flower Fusion Two came out in Chocolate Chip, Pirouette Pink, and...dang it, can't remember, I think it might be Baja Breeze, but don't hold me to it. There are coordinating stamps sets for all the new punches.

This list is totally random, clearly disorganized and based on only a couple of looks through the new catalog and not much sleep. I'm sure there's a ton more information posted on Splitcoast somewhere. Hope you're all doing well.

Oh, and I met Kristina Werner! I was totally starstruck and a little out of it, but still...I met her!

Thanks Kim for all the info! I can't wait to see the vanilla hardware and I'm so glad the pumpkins and Tart/Tangy made it. I'll be ordering Tart/Tangy as soon as I can!

Sounds like you're having fun!!
