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!
