Lastchanceproductbanner2022

It's time for the Last Chance Product Sale. You can grab some favorite annual catalog items at a discount.
As always, the sale is only while supplies last. 
The Last Chance Product Sale (previously called "Retirement Sale" ) started yesterday~ did you get the list?
 
Traditionally, things sell out quickly~ sometimes in just an hour! So, when you see something you love, you need to order quickly!
There are many things on the list that are 40% and 50% off!
 
Guess what else??
As a demonstrator, I just got to see the New Annual Catalog! WOW! That is just one of the many perks we have as a demonstrator!
AND! I get to start purchasing from it on April 1!
I'm very excited! Would you like to join me (and many others) and begin purchasing from the new catalog a month early?
When you purchase the Starter Kit and join my team, you can do that!
Just let me know if you would like to do that!
You can even fill your Starter Kit with things from the new catalog!
WOO HOO!
 
 
Heads Up!
Prices are going up in the new catalog.
Here's what Stampin' Up! posted for the demonstrators last week:
 
We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact you and your customers.
Due to increased costs to produce these items, moving forward new prices will be in effect (including for all catalog-related promotions, such as the catalog preorder) within the following product categories:
  • Select background stamps
  • Select stamping accessories
  • Classic Stampin’ Ink Pads and Refills
  • Cardstock and Designer Series Paper
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machines and select plates
  • Punches and select tools
  • Kits Collection and select Memories & More
  • Select embellishments and ribbons
  • Select adhesives
In addition, during our pricing analysis, we realized our systems were not handling pricing calculations consistently. We fixed this issue, which resulted in slight price changes across the board. These price updates impact all markets but will be seen across different product categories in each market; they will also go into effect with the 2022–2023 Annual Catalog. 
 
So, you might want to purchase some basics while they are still lower in price... stamp pads, cardstock, envelopes, tools, etc.
 
Below are both lists in excel and pdf form below.
