There are always speculations around this time of the year as to what the new catalogue, due out for public view on June 1st, will hold. Usually there are sneak peeks available and, very occasionally, there is something from the upcoming catalogue that we can order early.
Do you recognize the punch? It is on page 16 of the Spring Mini catalogue and co-ordinates with the "Ciao, Baby" stamp set. No, there are not 24 little stamps in this set. The picture shows the 8-piece set in English, French and also in Spanish.
For the time being, this set is being offered as a bundle along with the punch for a 15% discount. If you're like me, there is frequently only enough room on the front of a card for a small sentiment and this is definitely an attractive way to get one. Just think how cute this would look layered onto a complimentary colour of cardstock punch with your 1" circle punch. I'm already thinking of new ideas for it!
This Spring Surprise Bundle (stamp set and punch) will be sold only until May 30th after which they become two separate products with no discount. For this period, the stamp set will be available only in the clear mount. Item number for the bundle is: #133899 at a cost of $29.95.
If you like this opportunity as much as I do, and want to take advantage of the lower shipping available with workshop orders, here's a tip. Now that Stampin' Up! is providing us with a Hostess Code, your order can be included in a workshop order to give you 10% shipping rather than the $9.95 you would be paying for shipping by placing an online order. So now you can go online, make your order as usual, and as long as you've gotten the latest Hostess Code from me, your order will become part of the workshop. How cool is that?
