Breaking News!!!

Well, I just got home from a 4 day trip to Arizona and was greeted with breaking news from Stampin' Up!

First up is that beginning in July 2009 - SU will return to an annual catalog instead of the current bi-annual catalog system. They made this decision based on the current economic times and feedback from the demonstrators. There will be 3 mini's per year - each lasting 4 months. There will be additional hostess sets in the minis each time so that you can have additional choices when you hostess a workshop during that time period. The Decor Elements will be a separate catalog and will be published twice a year. The mini's will be used to introduce new products throughout the year.

Also, based on demo and customer feedback, they will be discontinuing double mounted sets in the future (with a couple of exceptions). Those sets that are currently double mounted will remain that way until they retire. Also the larger alpha sets and those sets in the kits will continue to be double mounted. They had originally double mounted them in an effort to reduce costs for these larger sets, but felt this was now the right thing to do. They are continuing to analyse what can be done to help with the price of the larger sets. I'll keep you posted.

There has also been an announcement that sometime later in the year, we will be offering some sort of Digital scrapbooking software. This was announced at the Leadership conference and I don't have any details yet about it. I'll keep you posted!

Well that's it for breaking news! Check out the next post for Sale-A-Bration and March special information.

Happy Scrappin!
