So, yesterday was the big launch of a new product line from Stampin’ Up! called “This and That”. It is coming out in the new catalog in June (and supposedly with an expanded offering) but they are releasing some of it early to us. Always fun to start playing early!
If you are at all familiar with Smash books, you may feel familiar with this type of product — and if you have no idea what I mean by “Smash Book”, have no fear (and you are NOT alone!). I have more info for you below.
First, here are the goodies they just released:
What you see there is:
1. A journal (kind of like an artist’s journal only with more decorated interior pages totalling 60 pages or 30 spreads)
3. A rotary date stamp!
4. Coordinating element stickers
5. WASHI TAPE!!!!
So much fun stuff that will be great together but also awesome to use on your other projects like cards, scrapbooks, whatever.
Get it all and save 15%! Yup, you can get any of it individually but if you want it all, there is a bundle available from now through April 30th that gets you an extra 15% off everything. Sweet!
But what the heck do you do with it?
Hee hee, I know some people are totally asking that question. So, the short answer is that this is meant to be a journal you take with you and when you have some memento, memory, thought. You can jot it down and use the accents and tapes to created a coordinated creative place to record that memory. To give you an idea, check this out:
Finally, to celebrate the launch of this product line, Stampin’ Up is giving away a trip to San Diego!!!
(This is a facebook page contest, so don’t be surprised if you get taken to Facebook)
I’m going to give it a go and plan to hopefully use it as a way to record all the cute one-liners my kids and hubby are always coming up with. How would you use yours?
Psst – You may notice that this product line includes the colors Calypso Coral and Pool Party, both of which are In Colors that are slated to retire at the end of May. Rumor has it, this means they will be somehow making it back into the regular rotation instead of being retired. So, good news if you love either color!
