Well, Stampin' Up! just announced that all their new stamp sets coming up in the new 2008-09 Fall/Winter collection will be die cut for you. What does this mean? It means you don't have to trim your stamp sets anymore! You will still have to mount your own stamps, but that is what is so appealing about Stampin' Up! stamps because you get the option to place your stamp anywhere on your wood block. I'm really excited about this. I had the opportunity a few years ago to actually ask Shelly (founder of Stampin' Up!) if this would ever be possible and now here we are! This is great news! One little disclaimer though – this applies to new sets in the Fall/Winter collection. This means that any sets that are in the current catalog that are carried over into the new catalog (unveiled August 1st) will still need to be trimmed. That's okay because we don't want our craft and rubber scissors to be sad. L
I am waiting impatiently today for my Stampin' Up! order that was supposed to be delivered 2 days ago, but it seems that the package hit some bad weather somewhere and was delayed. Today is the day though that I should be getting my new Décor Elements. I ordered the one that says Create and I can't wait to put it in the Stamp Room!
You know what else I did today (yes, already and it is only 8:45 in the morning)? I pre-ordered some items that will be in the new catalog!! I can't wait to play with the new colors and share them with you!
So, I am interested in what all of you think about having the new stamp sets die cut – so leave me a comment for I am interested. Maybe I'll even pass the information onto Stampin' Up! for you. We all like to hear praise, I bet the folks at Stampin' Up! like to hear it too.
Until later – Have a Happy Day!
