More news - Best of 25 Years and single stamps


It’s all happening in the world of Stampin’ Up!® Not only do we have the retiring products lists to study, wail over and shop from… and we demonstrators are busy with our pre-orders from the new catalogue and planning our launch parties… now SU has made TWO more exciting announcements.

Best of 25 Years Stamp Sets
As part of our 25-year anniversary celebration, SU is bringing back some of our favourite stamp images from the last quarter century and combining them into five sets, which will release – one set per month – until October 2013. Along with some great classic images, each “Best of” set will also include a never-before-seen image, although many of the images may be new to us in the UK as we’ve only had SU here for five years.

All the “Best of” sets will be available in clear-mount only and will retail at £13.95. A new one will be released each month, but will remain available until 31st March 2014.

This month’s stamp set is called Best of Flowers and you’ve already seen a hint of it in this post, as we were lucky enough to be given a free set at the Regional Training event in Telford. The cool thing, which I haven’t exploited yet, is that the flower I used actually fits the 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch. That would have saved me a lot of time when making 10 boxes!

Anyway, here’s a pic of the full set.

Single Stamps
The second announcement refers to single stamps. Over in the North American market, SU has been experimenting with single stamps and seen very positive results. So now we’re getting them, too – aren’t we lucky that SU has America to use as a guinea pig for us?

From now until 31st August, or while supplies last, you can purchase five single image stamps. They are all clear-mount only and will be packaged in cello bags, rather than boxes.

Here they are – I love the one with the specs!




Meanwhile, it is, of course, also Caturday… so here’s Maddie, baby Max’s very patient mum, no I was wrong, it's actually Popeye,  who belongs to the cat shelter's owner, but had popped in for a visit.
