Button Buddies Send Off Event Samples

As I was looking through the new catalog sneak peek that demonstrators got yesterday, I was excited by the changes with the designer buttons and realized this meant that all of the current designer buttons that match the color families would be retiring.  What I didn’t realize at first was that meant that my beloved Button Buddies stamp set would be retiring too!


I loved the cute images in this set and how they perfectly matched the different shapes of the designer buttons.  I had been planning to run a Button Buddies class but it kept slipping off my calendar but now, I HAVE to run it!

It is my last hurrah with this stamp set.  Here are two of the cards I had created for this class:

I mean, they are totally adorable images, right?!?  Smile

Each year, as we enter into the last month of the Annual Catalog and demonstrators start getting their preview copies of the upcoming catalog, everyone starts wondering and guessing which products will be discontinued and what fun new things are coming out soon!

Well, in the spirit of the Oscar prediction games – I’m running a Stampin’ Up! Retirement List prediction game!

How to Play

  1. Grab your copy of the 2012-2013 Annual Catalog an start flipping, or check out the catalog online here.
  2. Write down the 10 stamp sets or single stamps that are in the catalog that you think will be retired this year (not including hostess sets)
  3. Email me your list of predictions to jennifer@nwstamper.com by April 23rd at 3pm PST

A few rules:

  • Anyone may send me their predictions but only non-demonstrators can win my prize.  If you are currently a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, enjoy the demo community chatter and sneak peeks from Stampin’ Success and other demo events. 🙂
  • If the retirement list leaks out early, I reserve the right to shut down the contest part of the game early.

So, get flippin and enjoy the guessing game of what will stay and what will go!  I can’t wait to see what everyone predicts!

Its that time of year again where Stampin’ Up! is getting ready for a new catalog to come out (coming June 1st!) and with the new catalog means retiring some of the current stamp sets to make room for the new.  The list is big this year but I’m excited to see what that means for the new sets in June.
