Retiring Accessories from Stampin' Up!

As we bid a fond farewell to this year's retiring stamp sets, we also say goodbye to our retiring accessories. Products are usually discontinued based on current trends or lower product sales to make room for new and exciting products. Please keep in mind that discontinued accessories are available until June 30. Quantities are limited to stock on hand, so once they're gone, they're gone! Retired stamps and Stampin' Around wheels will be available through June 30.

Don't panic!
You'll see some items on the discontinued list that will still be available. In addition to discontinued items, many years we also have a number of items that are being offered in a different quantity or assortment in the upcoming catalog. This year, we're offering the following items differently in the Fall-Winter Collection 2007:

Select individual color packs of 12 x 12 card stock
Confetti White & Kraft Tiny Takeout boxes & tags
Select embossing powder colors
Select 1/4" grosgrain ribbon colors
Corner Rounder punch
These items appear on the retired list and will be retired in their current quantity or assortment, but you will be able to purchase these or similar items in a different configuration, quantity, or assortment in the Fall-Winter Collection 2007.

Click here to see the retiring accessories list.

Don't delay in stocking up on any of these retiring accessories that are a must for your collection! E-mail me or call at (925)783-8338 to place an order. I would like to get all orders in by Friday, June 29.

The list of retiring sets has been out for quite some time now, allowing you the opportunity to purchase those retiring sets that you've had on your wish list. Be sure to get them before they are gone for good! Once the current catalog ends at the end of this month, these sets will no longer be available - not even to demonstrators! On or around June 20th, Stampin' Up! will also be releasing the list of retiring accessories, which I will be posting here on my blog as soon as I receive it from Stampin' Up! These retiring accessories could be anything at all - inks, papers, embellishments, tools - you never know what is going to make the list. Last year, for example, they retired some ribbons, brads, eyelets, tools, Scrappin' Kits, tags, boxes, etc. The list was rather extensive, but it made room for all of the wonderful additions to the catalog that we saw this past year and it has kept Stampin' Up! on track with current trends. While these retirements are sad news for those of us who love absolutely EVERYTHING in the current catalog, here's the good news - you will have one more opportunity to purchase any of these items before they are gone! I will be placing ONE more order before the end of June - on Saturday, June 30th. I recommend that you take a look through the current catalog and Spring Mini Catalog and be sure to order the retiring stamps and accessories that you love, as well as whatever "essential items" (adhesive, envelopes, paper, etc.) you buy on a regular basis - don't forget - prices will increase slightly in the next catalogue. Why not save a little by stocking up on those essential items?! Please contact me by Saturday, June 30th to place an order, and keep your eye out for the retiring accessories list, coming soon to a blog near you!
