We are all waiting with anticipation for the new 2007-2008 Idea Book and Catalogue. What will we see in it? What is new, what is improved? We know what is going, all the things on our retired list . Some things like the Watercolour crayons will be back in a slightly different form. I wait impatiently to get my hands on the new IB&C at the end of this month. If you want to be one of the first to also see the new release, contact me to preorder your new IB&C. I am also planing a launch party for the 14th April, so you can have a look at all the new IB&C has in it and play with some of the new products.
The other thing that will be new will be all the new ideas on how to use our sets. With 250 ideas in the current catalouge, it will be interesting to see the new ideas using the stamps we already have. I enjoy looking at the American Stampin' Up IB&C for just that reason. I know some of the product in there can't be brought here in Australia but the ideas are well worth the look.
Of the things we know will be in the new IB&C is a stamp set called Seeing Spots. This is a set of 6 stamps using circles and spots and a small flower. All the Australian Demonstrators received this set as a special Christmas Present from Stampin' Up!. I haven't had the chance to play with this set till this week and I loved what it has created. It lends itself to so many uses - as a background, male or female card, thank you cards or scrapbooking page. The cards on this page are all using the Seeing spots set.
