Leadership Announcements

I've been on the lookout for card ideas today and came across the best post I've seen out of Leadership on upcoming products and specials!  Thank you Angie Leach  for the comprehensive post!
Changes to My Paper Pumpkin Kits
 
  • Paper Pumpkin monthly kit subscribers will also start seeing photopolymer stamps in their kits beginning in February! 
  • Free Markers with the Starter Kit - When you sign up as a new Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you will receive a free set of 2012-2014 In Color Markers. That is a $14.95 value!
  • Leadership attendees got to see sneak peeks of the upcoming My Paper Pumpkin kits and said they are a better value than ever before. 
New Product Announcements
 
  • NEW Stampin' Blendabilities Markers - Like Copic or Prismacolor markers, we are releasing our own alcohol-based markers.  They are permanent and blend together easiely for shading.  You can use these to alter embellishments & color non-porous surfaces. Stampin' Up! will introduce them within the next few months with a small sampling of 12 colors: Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Old Olive, Night of Navy, Rich Razzleberry, Wisteria Wonder, Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake.  
    • "Each color will have three shades of markers in a package: light, medium and dark.  One of the shades will be the actual color, and the other two will be lighter or darker variations for ultimate blendability!  Each marker has a brush tip and a medium point nib (larger than the fine tip on our current markers).  3-Packs of Markers will be $11.95.  "  ~ Angie Leach. 
    • Make a mistake?  Not a problem because we will also have a Color Lifter Marker for $4.95 to erase mistakes! 
  • NEW Momento Tuxedo Black Ink - As many of you have mentioned to me (and I have experienced myself), our new foam pads are great except for the Basic Black which smears on many of our papers and also dries out quickly.  SU will soon make Momento Black Ink available for purchase to use.  It is water-based and permanent! 
  • NEW Texture Boutique Embossing Machine - Stampin' Up! will soon offering a mini-Big shot machine that is less expensive and only does embossing.  This product will be great for those of you that like the embossing folders but haven't gotten into the Framelits or Dies.  Or if you are just looking for a more reasonable price point than the Big Shot.   It will be released on January 28 just in time for Sale-a-Bration!
Changes for Recruits
 
  • Free Registration to Convention!  If you sign up to be a demonstrator during Fiscal Year 2014 (July 1, 2013 - registration closes), you can get a FREE Registration To Inspire.Create.Share Convention!  That's a $285 value!  Convention runs July 17-July 19th, 2014. 

Changes to Photopolymer Stamp Sets
  • Stampin' Up! has now begun manufacturing the all-clear photopolymer stamps at their Kanab plant so there will be more of these sets in the next annual catalog. 
  • In addition, they will come in DVD cases instead of the flimsy plastic envelopes they come in now which makes for much better storage!
  • Sands & Stripes Double Alphabet—SU will release a new double alphabet in photopolymer that's trendy, fun and much less expensive than other styles of stamps!  You can see it on February 4th. 
  • There will be NEW Personalized Photopolymer Name Stamps.
Have a craftastic day,
Stacy
