They’re Kind of Like Hidden Treasures

On the first of this month, Stampin’ Up! released their brand new Idea Book and Catalog for 2009-2010. I’m seriously glad I joined Stampin’ Up! when I did because it was right in time to join all of the other demonstrators in getting a Sneak Peek at the new products coming out in this new catalog. And honestly, the new catalog just rocks. The new stamp sets are amazing (it’s hard not to buy them all right now!) and this year’s In Colors (more on that later) are freaking hot! If you’d like to get a look at the newly released catalog, just click on the link on the right-hand side of my blog and you can view every single page with all of it’s stamping goodness and glory. Or if you’d like a hard-copy of the catalog (great for marking your favorites with sticky notes…hehe), just contact me and I’ll be happy to get one out to you!

ANYWAYS, yes the new catalog is awesome. But in with the new stamp sets also means out with some of the older stamp sets. Sadly, I didn’t start blogging about Stampin’ Up! in time to share with you the last chance sets that have since retired as of July 1st. There were many great stamp sets that I was sad to see go. However, there is also the Dormant List of stamp sets. These are stamp sets that have not been retired, but they are not featured in this year’s Idea Book & Catalog. I like to think of the dormant sets as secret hidden treasures. They are gorgeous and wonderful stamps that you can still purchase, but only if you know that they’re there! So if you feel like going on a treasure hunt, here is this year’s Dormant List:

Usually Stampin’ Up! releases a PDF that has images of the dormant stamp sets, but they haven’t done that yet for this year’s dormant list. So if you’re curious as to what any of these stamp sets looks like, just go to my Stampin’ Up! website, click on Shop Now, and then simply search the name of the stamp set and it should pop right up for you to take a gander. Hopefully Stampin’ Up! will make another PDF version of the Dormant List with images, and when they do I’ll post it here for viewing convenience!

I’ve still got tons of fun info to share with you to go along with the new catalog release. So look forward to more posts in the near future!

    [...] Don’t see the Grand Soiree stamp set in your Idea Book & Catalog? That’s because it’s not in there! Grand Soiree is a dormant stamp set. So although it’s not in the IBC, it is still a stamp set that is available for purchase. For a complete list of dormant stamp sets, click HERE. [...]
