Many demonstrators are doing unboxing videos to show all of the fantastic goodies they purchased from the new catalog.

I went into this new annual catalog buying period with the mindset to not go hog wild right out of the gate, but to be more mindful in what I selected to buy. In other words, just buy the products I really love in my first order. I had to remind myself that the catalog will be around for 12 months so I have plenty of time to make more purchases.

Below is a video showing you what I bought and why, as well as some cards I made with the new In Color products.

Annual Catalog Card Sample Recipes

I have one more thing to share with you before you get to the video. Have you ever looked at the card samples in the catalog and wondered what products were used to make them – what color ink, what color cardstock or which designer series paper? Well, Stampin’ Up! has a file called Annual Catalog Card Sample Recipes that shows each card in the catalog and tells you exactly what was used to create it. They are listed in the Sample Card Recipes document by the page number they appear in the catalog. Below is a link to the pdf document.
