    My favorite new product in the SU catalogue is the distressing kit.

    Hi Darlene,

    I’m from Vancouver and I visited your hometown of Edmonton very recently (July 2-5) as part of a family vacation/road trip. Edmonton was our first stop of the 9 day road trip but while we were there we only really got to see the West Edmonton Mall. We were intimated from getting lost a couple of times which prevented us from venturing off any further. Too bad cause I’m sure there was a lot more to see and do!

    Anyway, as I can’t attend your launch party being from another province (LOL), I’d love to be included in your draw but I haven’t a clue as to what my favourite product would be…they’re all so terrific! I must say though that from my perspective as a hobby cardmaker, I love the different coloured cardstock and designer series papers currently available. Very eye-catching!

    That’s it from me! Thanks for your time and for posting some terrific ideas that we can all use as examples.

    My favourite new Stampin’ Up! catalogue product is … The Colour Coach. I think this will take a lot a guess work out of colour decisions plus make me think outside the box.

    Hi Dar,

    Would really like to attend your Open House tomorrow but it just isn’t in the cards. However, one day I’ll surprise you and drive up for one of your events!

    My favourite new Stampin’ Up! catalogue product is … & I know it’s not new new…being in the summer mini, but the Square Lattice Embossing Folder just seems to give every project more depth and richness…..”kicks it up a notch”. And then, there’s all the new 1/8″ taffeta ribbon….oh, & the blueberry crisp dsp! OK, I can’t choose….can’t commit to one thing!

    I sure hope my name pops out on the 19th!

    My favorite item from the new catalog is the ribbon in all the new colors, especially the wide striped grosgrain.

  6. Kimberly S.on 14 Jul 2010 at 1:55 pm

    I’m new to your blog…I just found it and just now subscribed to your newsletter. I’m not from Canada, but I HAVE to tell you…I absolutely LOVE the Perfect Punches set!!! It’s GORGEOUS!! Plus I have a million punches (yes, I’m a punch addict!), so I HAVE to get this set!!

  7. Karenon 14 Jul 2010 at 2:22 pm

    I’m too far away for your open house – too bad! My favourite new product is the pretty resist designer paper. And the great new jewels and pearls. And the wonderful safety pins and metal button brads. And the beautiful new background stamps. I have a lot of favourites! It’s a great catalogue.

    My favourite new Stampin’ Up! catalogue product is … How can I pick just one? If I had to narrow down my list of favorites it would have to be new two-step owl punch. So cute! I can see myself using it for a lot of different occasions. I think it will lend itself especially well to masculine cards (which I seem to have trouble with). Love your blog. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  9. susanon 14 Jul 2010 at 5:00 pm

    I like so many things in the new catalogue, it is hard to pick just one. I am really looking forward to getting and using some of the new colors of ink and paper. Thanks for sending the new catalogues out–

    Won’t be able to attend -too far away – Ont. I like lots of things in the new catalogue, and am having trouble deciding. The papers are all great. I especially like the Butterfly punch.
    Love your blog

    Hi Dar

    Thank you for for all the great ideas on your blog and newsletter. As I am in Vancouver, I will unfortunately be unable to attend your Open House – hope it goes well.

    My favourite item from the new Catalogue is the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. I cannot wait to order this and play.


  12. michelleipon 15 Jul 2010 at 6:11 am

    There’s too many things I like in the catalogue! First there’s the owl punch! Love it! it’s so cute!! I love the new Brights collection! Who knew! It was my least favorite before, and now it’s my fave! Love that there’s designer buttons for each collection and there’s a whole bunch of them! rather than the measely little 30 that came before. There’s so much more I like, but I can’t list them all! Thanks for the blog candy!

  13. Veroniqueon 15 Jul 2010 at 6:40 am

    I just discovered your blog a couple of weeks ago and I really like what you do. My favourite thing in the new catalog are the new designer papers and the other one are the new jewels and pearls.

    I wihs you a lot of fun at your open house (can’t come, i’m from too far away in Quebec!)

    Have a nice day!

  14. Katherinaon 15 Jul 2010 at 7:02 am

    I sure wish I was close enough to attend; I’m sure it will be a great success.
    My favourite thing about the new catalogue: the stamp sets called “Countryside” and the one called “Just Believe”.
    I love the new punches too! Oh and the Vintage Wallpaper folder! Yikes, I need another job!!
