I want to turn back the clock to Friday so I can attend OnStage#2017 again! Oh what fun it was spending time with my fellow demonstrators, catching up, sharing stories, some swapping cards they created, getting our hands on the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog (oh my!) and getting to use some of the new products to create make-and-take projects of our own. As is typically the case during these events, the time passed too quickly and leaving the company of my stampin’ friends was so very sad.
The event bag this year is kind of cool — while it is canvas like those of the past three or so events I have attended, it is not all natural colored canvas. I believe the majority of it is in Emerald Envy (a 2016-2018 In-Color) with a large side pocket in natural canvas which has little slots for your pens, iPhone, etc. and a long strap so it can be worn cross-body like a messenger bag.
The bag also included a monthly planner, a brand new yet to be released stamp set, a booklet of post-its and flags, two pens (stylus at the other end), a Prize Patrol button and a lanyard for our name tags.
The upcoming Annual Catalog is in a word–superb! The new In-Colors are fabulous and I am happy that several of the product bundles from the Occasions Catalog carried over; and of course disappointed in those that did not. I can’t show you anything just yet or give you any more specific information at this time.
The Retiring Items List will be released later today which will show all the products from the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog and the 2017 Occasions Catalog that will no longer be available for purchase after May 31. These items are available only while supplies last so if you want any of these items you will need to act quickly and get your order in. Items such as stamp pads, ink refills, card stock, designer series paper, ribbons and embellishments tend to sell out first. I will publish a separate post once the list has been published.
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, stamp on my friends,
