Retirement Lists

Although it may be a little confusing, the retirement lists are here.  Many of the Stamp sets are going to be transitioned from our previous wood mount and clear mount stamps, to the new "cling" mount stamps. Those stamps are listed as "retiring".  But that does not mean that the images themselves are going away.  They are just being made in the new "cling" style.  
 
Stampin' Up! has redone the list for the retired stamp sets for the Annual catalog, and has indicated those that are continuing (with the new cling style) by giving those products a light gray line through them, and putting an asterisk by the name of the set.

DRUM ROLL PLEASE..

 So many favorites of mine are going!

I urge you to take the time to look the lists over very carefully.  Every year, customers ask me throughout the year about products that Stampin' Up! retired. So.. please check it out carefully so you won't be disappointed later this year!
Here's a suggestion:  Print the list, and then go through your catalogs and mark what is going.  Then you'll see what you need to order! You can click on the graphic above for the complete pdf for the Annual catalog list.  The links below the graphic show the retiring lists for both the Annual catalog and the Occasions catalog in my online store.
 
(In the graphics list of stamp sets, the ones that are staying in cling style are NOT indicated)
(Remember that the stamp sets and the dies might continue in the catalog, but they will not be at the "bundled" price)
 
Stampin' Up! will continue to produce the retiring stamp sets through May 24th.  However, the accessories are only available on a "first come, first served" basis. Remember, accessories include any dies, embossing folders, ribbons, designer papers, embellishments, etc...anything starting on page 181 and beyond.   Once our supplies are depleted, they will no longer be available so get what you want now! 
 
As always, the outgoing "In-colors" are the first to go.. so if you have In Color ink pads, protect your investment by purchasing extra card stock and ink refills today! 
 
Remember, don't wait to get the things you really want, some things are already sold out and it's only the first day!

PS..Don't forget.. the outgoing In Colors will go very fast!
 
Now, let's talk about something else you might have noticed.
The Big Shot and the Stampin' Trimmer are being retired. 
WHAT???  Yes, its true.  And WHAT??? was my immediate reaction. 
Here's what's happening:  Stampin' Up! has decided to go to straight to the manufacturer, and bypass the supplier, for a die cut machine.  But all this is taking time, more time than they expected.  So, for now, there will not be a die cutting system in the new catalog.  
There are new die cuts and new embossing folders in the new catalog, made with the new manufacturer! It's just taking a bit of time to work out all the bugs with the new machine.  So, please be patient.  Know that the die cuts and embossing folders you already have will work with the new system. We just need to be patient and know that something even better is coming! 
 
Now, about the Stampin' Trimmer.  At the present time Stampin' Up! is working on a new trimmer, but it's not ready yet.  The blades for the current trimmer are on back order, and I will receive an email when they are back in stock. 
Could you please shoot me an email and let me know you are interested in blades, so as soon as I receive the email, I'll send you a note and let you know they are "orderable" again. Thanks!
 
I hope you have received some answers to your questions!  
Let me know if you have any other questions! 
 
I was looking over the retiring list last night, and was so surprised to see that these favorites of mine are retiring! 
1.  Envelope punch board #133774
2.  Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets #144106
 
Let me know if you have any questions, I'm happy to help. 
 





A Special Birthday Month

Paperpumkingsixth

Paper Pumpkin is turning six and we want to celebrate with you! It has been six wonderful years of creativity.  To celebrate the occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, we're offering a specially-designed March kit and a FREE STAMP SET. Oh, yes. You read that right. In March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit! 

There are a few different ways to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin when you click here. Also, you can check out the flyer below.

 
 
 
So, here's some tidbits from Andrew Rousch, the "CEO" of Paper Pumpkin...
��FREE STAMP SET����
You can't say that I didn't warn you...
 
Here are the top reasons you will want this March kit! 

1.You can buy a 3, 6, or 12 mo prepaid, enjoy your FREE SAB product AND redeem your prepaid code to get the March kit...which has a FREE STAMP SET. 
2. You can't get the free stamp set anywhere but inside the March box. 
3. This free stamp set is something every type of crafter will adore and cherish.
4. Those who don't get the free stamp set will be envious.

��Oh wow! That's a really great stamp set. Where did you get it? 
��From Paper Pumpkin. I bet you wish you had one.
�� Yes, well, my demonstrator didn't tell me to subscribe.�� 
Can I borrow it? ��
��I suppose but I better get it back.
��Sure. Of course.��

5. The only person who wouldn't want the free stamp set is someone who hates stamping.��
6. The free stamp set is big. Big as in...Wow! That's really nice.
7. Best free gift ever.�� You'll wonder, "How'd the PP team dare give it away for free? I hope somebody didn't get in trouble for this."�� 
8. You will thank me because you didn't miss out.
 
And, no need to fear...I made sure to order lots and lots.

So.. there you go! Straight from the horses' mouth! 

Now.. just one more thing you need to know! 

Here's some Saleabration Math for you:

When you order a 12-month prepaid subscription, here's the bang for the buck you get... 
 
1. 12-month prepaid PP = $209
2. I add $41 to get to $250 as that's the bonus threshold for more Stampin' Rewards during SAB
3. Let's say I choose 5 SAB items at the $50 level (those are likely worth an average of $18 each)
4. I will then qualify for $50 in Stampin' Rewards rather than the typical $25 (10%).
5. I pay shipping and tax
 
I end up getting about $90 in SAB products
I get $50 in free products via Stampin' Rewards
How great is that math? 
If you are already a MPP subscriber, you can just order this 12-month subscription and it will automatically be added on to your monthly payment... no need to worry that you will be "doubled up."  

Here are the item numbers you need to order:
1 month subscription:  137858
3 months subscription:  137859
6 months subscription: 137860
12 months subscription: 137861  

Did you know that there is a fun, 1-2 minute video for every My Paper Pumpkin kit, that shows you how to put it together?  I LOVE to watch them.. the music is always so fun, and the graphics are a kick! 
 
So.. what are you waiting for?  Sign up now so you won't miss the March kit, and the extra FREE stamp set!!
