You are in luck.
I have been cleaning out my office and I have found a number of Retired Idea Book & Catalogues, as well as Mini Catalogues.
I hate to throw them out or to recyle them. I would rather they go to a nice home to be cherished and loved.
Why would you want a Retired Canadian Stampin' Up! Idea Books & Catalogue or Retired Mini Catalogues?
You may have the Stamp Sets or Products from that issue, but you didn't receive the Stampin' Up! Idea Book & Catalogue at that time. It would be full of samples that match your Stamp Sets or Products. This will help you when you are drawing a blank as to what you can create with them.
PLUS, everything old is new again. You can take an idea that you have seen in an old issue and change the Colors, Stamp Set, Punch or Embellishment and you have a new Card or Project idea.
Or maybe you didn't know about Stampin' Up! at the time and you want some new ideas.
I have copies of 2007 Fall/Winter Idea Book & Catalogue, 2008 Spring/Summer Idea Book & Catalogue, 2008 Fall/Winter Idea Book & Catalogue, 2009 Spring/Summer Idea Book & Catalogue, 2009-2010 Idea Book & Catalogue and copies of some Mini Catalogues.
Who knows if you see a Stamp Set or Product in a Retired issue, that you love and have to have, I may have it for sale.
The cost of the Retired Idea Book & Catalogue is $5.00 + Postage, if I have to mail it to you.
