Introducing an all-new event brought to you by Stampin' Up!: the 2014 Catalogue Premiere!
Last night, my two downlines (Laurie and Melissa) and I were among the first to see the 2014-2015 annual catalogue! That's right, I have IN MY POSSESSION the 2014-2015 Stampin' Up Annual Catalog! It was just as if we were at a star-studded Hollywood movie premiere! We saw sneak peaks of upcoming new releases and received a bit of SWAG!
Are you ready to see the brand spankin' new catalog?
Are you ready now?
How about now?
What about now?
Just kidding. . . I'm going to make you wait just a little bit longer (which is exactly what they made us do last night at the premiere!)
First up is a photo (forgive the bad cell phone images) of my two downlines (Melissa on the left and Laurie in the center) with me at dinner last night at East in Branford before the premiere. It was the most delicious Asian meal ever! I can't wait to have my leftovers for lunch today!
Here is moi, with my "Tahitian Tea" in hand (super yummy - it's one of those beverages that's almost dangerous to drink because you can't taste the alcohol!) and my Ginger Pineaple Chicken and Shrimp dish. Look at the size of that plate! There's a half a pineapple in there! Literally.
Are you NOW ready to see that brand new catalog?
You're just dying to see it aren't you?
Well. . .
Not just yet. Sorry! (Not really!) I'll let the anticipation kill you a little while longer. . .
So, one of my personal, most exciting parts of the catalog premiere (aside from the catalog itself) was that I got to meet Justin Krieger! Who is Justin Krieger you ask? You DON'T know????? LOL. I have pretty much followed his blog since I signed up witih Stampin' Up! He is a fellow demonstrator and BSF (Best Stamping Friend) to Brian King who is my BSF Laurie's favorite! Brian and Justin are besties, like Laurie and I are besties! It was such a pleasure to meet him. I look up to Justin as a bit of a "celebrity" and that's always cool to meet someone you admire! Here is a photo of Justin, his upline Sandy Mathis, and myself. For more on Sandy's website click here.
Here is Laurie, Justin and Sandy:
Laurie and I were truly like giddy schoolgirls upon hearing that Justin would be at the catalog premiere. I wouldn't call us quite "Justin stalkers" but we are definitely big fans. So, a big thank you to Justin for being so gracious upon meeting him and giving me a hug! It was truly an honor.
And now. . . the part you have all been waiting for. . .
THE NEW CATALOG!
There it is! The cover of your new 2014-2015 Annual Catalog and Idea Book! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! I love the stamps and framelits and inkpads on the cover. It just embodies all that Stampin' Up! is. Now, I wish that I could open it and share with you what's inside, but unfortunately, Stampin' Up! policy prohibits me from sharing anything online until the catalog goes live on June 1. HOWEVER, I can share the catalog with you in person, so next time you see me - just ask. Inspire. Create. SHARE!
