I was talking to my friend Susan from the Hostess Stamp Group today and she said, “I’m loving the new catalog!” Since we’ve had it for 10 days now, I thought this would be a good time to take a closer look at some of the things that are new and noteworthy that you might have missed:
Whisper White 8 1/2″ x 11″ Thick Cardstock, pg. 149 – What a great idea! This white card stock is 100 lb. weight for constructing sturdier card bases (our regular card stock is 80 lb. weight.)
2015-2017 In Color Envelope Paper, pg. 149 – Another innovation, this thinner text-weight paper is designed to be used with the Envelope Punch Board to make envelopes, but it can also be used as patterned paper on cards and other projects. At $6.00 for twenty 12″ x 12″ sheets, this is a very economical choice!
Tin of Cards Project Kit, pg. 152 – We are really excited about this one! In fact, it’s pictured on the cover of the new catalog. This kit contains all of the materials to make 16 cards, 4 each of 4 different designs, plus a tin box to store them in and dividers to keep them separated by type. You can keep filling the box with your handcrafted cards and always be ready for any occasion! It’s ready-made for a fun get-together class with your demonstrator providing the stamps and inks. Plus, it would make a great gift! Watch this video to learn more:
Watercolor Wings and Bold Butterfly Framelits, pgs. 75, 172 – Among the many new stamp sets, this one stands out as unique because it is a three-step stamp system, to be used first with a light color, then a medium color, and adding a finishing touch with a darker color, all on the same butterfly image. In addition, there are matching framelits dies that can be purchased separately or in a bundle with the stamps.
What is your favorite new thing in the catalog?
