2016-18 In Color Book Marks
Okay, I admit it! I looked at the photos of the new 2016-18 In Colors in the upcoming 2016-17 Annual Catalog and I was - well - underwhelmed. They seemed washed out for starters. And do we really need another green? We already have six! I do admit I hate to see Mossy Meadow go. It's such a beautiful rich, dark green. So when pre-order time came for the new catalog (you know, as a Stampin' UP! demonstrator you get to see the new catalogs about two months in advance and get to pre-order a month before everyone else) I knew I had to order the In Colors. Let me tell you, when I saw the colors in person, I was flabbergasted! The color pics in the catalog don't nearly do them justice. They are amazing.
I used a new stamp set called Painter's Palette. It has great images of brush strokes, spatters, push pin, sentiments, and a painter's easel with a frame.
So when it came time to send out catalogs to my customers, I had to share the gorgeous color palette with them. I created bookmarks in each of the five colors - Dapper Denim, Emerald Ivy, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum. The bookmarks are samples of the card stock, ink pads, markers and the gorgeous 3/8" Ruched Ribbon. So if you're one of my customers who has purchased over the past year, your catalog, book marks, pen, and wish list are on the way! All of my regular customers receive all catalogs automatically.
