2012 Retiring Lists

It's that time of year again! The retired lists have arrived. I know they look really scary at first glance but since Stampin' Up is changing the catalog strategy this year (smaller Idea Book and Catalog once a year coming out on June 1st and bigger Mini Catalogs twice a year), they had to get rid of more products than in past years. The classic stamp pads are not going away, we are just getting new and improved firmer foam pads that will give a much cleaner image when stamped. A few important things to remember:

  1. the 2010-2012 In Colors will be retiring as of May 31st, so if you can't live without some of those colors make sure to stock up on paper, ink refills, and accessories.
  2.  you don't have to worry about Stampin' Up running out of those stamp sets that are retiring,  but if you see some favorites on the accessories list they are "while supplies last"
  3. the textured cardstock is retiring (sniff, sniff) so if it was a favorite of yours like it was mine, stock up!
  4. ALL of the craft ink and pads are retiring (stomping my feet and pouting) so if you own them you might think about ordering an extra set of the reinkers so you won't run out.
  5.  the Stampin' Write Markers aren't going away but they are reconfiguring them so only certain colors are going to be available for purchase singly. If you have the time to go thru your markers and pick the few that are pretty wasted (I already have my list!) you might consider buying them before they are only available for order within the color families.
  6. the Occasions Mini Catalog expires on April 30 so make sure you have ordered everything you need from it before it is gone, gone, gone!  

If you have any questions regarding the retiring lists (or about anything for that matter ;) just shoot me an email. I would love to hear from you! Happy Shopping!

Just kinda getting my feet wet in the blog-o-sphere but don't worry, I will be posting pics of some projects very soon! Thanks for stopping by!
