Being able to order products early is one of my favorite perks about being a demonstrator. Some of you who follow me on Pinterest may have already seen some of these fun new products that are going to be available come January 4th in the new 2017 Occasions Catalog and/or Sale-A-Bration Brochure. And one of them is so exciting, I just have to shout it out...Watercolor Pencils!! (We used to carry them years ago, but they are back with a big improvement. They now coordinate with Stampin' Up! colors!)
This card also features two other new products you can get come January 4th: the Moon Baby stamp set and the double-sided Lace Doilies (vanilla on one side, white on the other). Here are the products used to create this sweet card.
I colored lightly with each pencil only putting color where I wanted it to be the darkest. And then I took my Blender Pen and went over one color at a time - smoothing & softening the color while dragging it to other areas creating the darker to lighter shades. (Hopefully you are on Facebook and can view the video. In it I also share 3 other fun project ideas that I created using November 2016 Wonderful Winterland Paper Pumpkin kit. I'll share photos of those on my blog soon, too.)
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek! I encourage you to look around on Pinterest if you are curious and want to see more of what is coming. See below (or contact me) to find out how you can get your copy of the new 2017 Occasions Catalog & Sale-A-Bration Brochure.
Important Dates regarding the release of the 2017 Occasions Catalog & Sale-A-Bration Brochure... Mark your calendars!
November 7 - The 2017 Occasions Catalog & Sale-A-Bration Brochure appeared online for demonstrators only.
Product videos showing new items were made available on the Stampin' Up! YouTube channel.
Demonstrators could begin preordering products from the new publications and are receiving their complimentary copies of these publications in these preorders.
Starting this day new demonstrators can choose preorder products in their Starter Kits. (Click here to learn more about the fun of being a demonstrator in my community of stampers and the many other benefits of purchasing the Starter Kit.)
December 8 - Stampin' Up! begins shipping publications to select customers. Standard (bulk) shipping can take up to three weeks, depending on your location. I selected customers of mine that will be receiving complimentary publications from me. But I also give complimentary publications to anyone that requests them and can either come pick them up OR can pay for me to ship them. Those that live near me may pick them up at no charge. If you do not live near enough to pick them up, request a set of publications from me.
December 12 - Complimentary copies begin shipping to those demonstrators who didn't place a demonstrator order between December 1 and December 11.
January 4 - All ordering will be down so Stampin' Up! can do catalog transition updates from midnight to 2:00 AM (MT). During this time no orders can be entered by demonstrators and by customers (in the Online Store).
The 2017 Occasions sales period begins at 2:00 AM (MT) and runs through May 31, 2017. The 2017 Sale-A-Bration brochure and promotions run through March 31, 2017.
