Hi, well this came out of left field but I think I need to share it with you quickly. Bear with me as I explain what's going on that I just heard about yesterday.


Stampin' Up! is having a 1st – they are having a "catalog reveal" event at a bunch of movie theaters nationwide. It is for demonstrators only. We will get a copy of the new 2014-2015 annual catalog AND something else free (a new stamp set? not sure) and the event has a fee. The registration for this event opens this Monday, March 24 and my gut tells me it'd be wise to register the moment it opens as it may sell out.

How does this relate to you? If you had any thought of buying the Starter Kit while it's on sale through March 31 ($99+ tax for $150 of anything you want & it ships free which is a further savings) then you might consider joining this weekend so you can register for the catalog party. I tell everyone everything I can as I don't ever want to make a choice for you or assume. For some reading this, you might not care one bit. Others would jump on this so…. here's what Stampin' Up! just told its demonstrators and that we have permission to share with our customers:

"Introducing an all-new event brought to you by Stampin' Up!: the 2014 Catalog Premiere!

Be the first to see the 2014-2015 annual catalog . . . just as if you were at a star-studded Hollywood movie premiere! You'll get a sneak peak at upcoming new releases (AKA pre-sale products) AND–what would a premiere party be without a bit of SWAG (sealed with a gift)? No one will go home from this party empty-handed!

And here's more exciting news: unlike Hollywood premieres, you won't have to be in Hollywood to see it first! Why? Because the 2014 Catalog Premiere will be simulcast to a theater near you at the following locations!
