Took a little longer to get onto my computer than I'd originally planned, but hopefully you logged on to my Facebook today and saw the post and links. Seems Blogger/Blogspot underwent some changes also so my blog post didn't post with the efficiency that I'm used to. SO sorry about that!!
As you know today - April 25th is that day we've all been waiting for. We've been talking about it and dreading it for weeks not knowing what to expect. All we really knew was that the cuts would be deep, since our new catalog is being reduced by 80ish pages.
So grab a coffee (or drink of your choice) before settling into this one because it's a big one... don't say I didn't warn you!!!
Some of the items on this list are on sale for up to 70% off! All of the items on the Accessories List are only available while supplies last, and retiring stamp sets ordered until May 31st will still be honoured.
A few things to note:
Two items were listed in the retiring list at a discount, but they are NOT retiring. As such the listed discounted price will not be honoured (sorry about that) ~ These are the Craft Scissors and Paper Trimmers, but listed on page 208 of the regular catalog. Sorry for any confusion or disappointment that this may cause.
Our Craft Ink Pads will be retiring and from June 1st forward we will only carry these ink pad in black and white. I will be double checking tomorrow to see if our blank pad will still be available to fill with craft ink refills. I didn't have a chance to do that today. I'll post an update and let everybody know for sure.
Our classic ink pads are all retiring. We will have a brand new ink pad style coming out with the new catalog. Stampin' Up! assures us that the colour families will stay the same, however there have been some improvements made to the ink pads making it a better and more firm pad that will allow for better stamp coverage.
We will no longer be carrying 12x12 textured card stock - so if this is something you love to have, you'll want to stock up now.
12x12 packages of card stock in any given colour will no longer be available. We will be selling them in colour families. So you will no longer be able to purchase a full package of *just* rich razzleberry for example.
Markers will no longer be sold individually, only in multi-color bundles.
The list is extensive and you may need to take a break part way through to rest your eyeballs and grab a second coffee.
I will be putting several orders in over the next few weeks. You can also order direct from my demonstrator website if you wish. Yes! You can combine retiring products and regular (current) products on the same order.
Wherever possible I will combine orders to save you money on shipping costs.
As you look through the listing. Keep in mind if there is a * next to a particular item (such as the stampin' scrub pad) this item is not being discontinued, but will return in a new format or configuration.
Here is the PDF for the Retiring Stamp List - If you missed it, or would like another look.
Here is a PDF for the Definitely Decorative Line of Products and a PDF for the Retiring Accessories and a Sort-Able Excel File for those as well.
Please let me know if I can be of any assistance in placing your order, or call me and we can place your order together. You can of course place your order 24/7 via my Stampin' Up! website and ship anywhere in Canada with no additional charges.
Check back tomorrow for an announcement on new changes to our demonstrator/I want it all Kit..
Until next time..
The BEST days always have some CRAFTY in it! :)
