It’s an exciting day in Stampin’ Up! land! It’s the catalog launch day for the new Annual catalog – which is always a fun and exciting day. One of the great perks for demonstrators is the ability to pre-order items from new catalogs in the month before the catalog goes live. It’s really great for us as well as Stampin’ Up! because it allows us to get started making beautiful samples that we can share right away when the catalog starts out. However, it is a little different for the annual catalog launch. We still get to pre-order items, but it is a small subset of the whole catalog. Don’t get me wrong, there’s always great things to pick from, and I always find goodies to purchase. But today is the day where everyone (including demos) can purchase ALL of the products in the catalog – and there’s some great stuff!

I’ve been poring over my catalog for weeks now to create and frequently revise my shopping list for today. My husband has joked that I’m going to wear out my copy of the catalog in my excitement and anticipation. It’s so tempting to go crazy and buy everything that I’ve fallen in love with, but I have to be strategic and plan my purchases to focus on items that I think I’ll use in the next couple of months. That’s being a responsible adult with my demonstrator bucks. But it’s SO HARD! There is so much pretty, artistic and fun to tempt anyone in this catalog, and I would dearly love to spend with abandon. It’s tough to be responsible! However, I absolutely know that I will have lots of fun creating with the items that did make it through my prioritization assessments. Below are some of my favorite things that did make it on my first order. What are your favorites?

If you do place an order of less than $150, please consider using Host Code 79FAJBPS when you submit your online order. The host rewards that I accrue from these orders will help me replenish my supplies that I use to create and share projects with you here. If your order is > $150, please don’t use the host code so you can enjoy the host rewards yourself. Who doesn’t love free stuff?!?

Happy shopping!
