Last Chance Products Are Here

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.

So Hoppy Together

 
Hey there!  Did you miss this class? 
I had offered it earlier, and then was too ill to have it.
So... I'm offering it one more time. 
I rarely (never) offer a class with retired products, but these techniques are not to be missed!  
You will be able to apply them to so many new stamp sets in the new catalog! 

You'll learn the techniques for three different 
"cards that do tricks"! 
 
I have had so much fun getting this class ready. 
Three of these cards are interactive! 
You are going to LOVE learning these techniques!
 

This little guy spins and spins across the card!
Pull on the ribbon at the top...
and Froggie slides up the card to reveal your sentiment 
at the top and the bottom!
A Viewmaster Card! Spin the dial at the side and 
Froggie can catch his lunch as it flies by! 
Froggie on his unicycle! 
 
For your fifth card, chose between these two!
Be sure to indicate which card you want to make when you RSVP
 
Wednesday, July 3, 10:00 am -1:30 pm
 
You will receive written directions for the three techniques so that you can replicate them at home with other stamps! 
 
Class Fee:  $35, or FREE with a $45 order

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. 

Lastchance2019

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.

Retired Lists Are Here

Retiredlist2013

It's time for Stampin' Up! to announce it's retiring lists of stamps and accessories.  Remember, these are first come, first served.  Once they are gone, they are gone and many of them are on sale and marked down.  You have until June 3, but many items go within hours.  So don't wait!  I encourage you to look this list over VERY CAREFULLY!  And then, place your order as soon as possible, so that you don't miss out on the things you have been wanting.  Don't forget that you might want to order re-inkers for your stamp pads that are retiring.

 
The best and most efficient way to order is for you to place your own order on my website here.  Click on "shop now" and then once you are there, if you have ordered from my website before, you can just "sign in",  and proceed with your order.  If, however, you have never ordered there before, you will need to "create an account" with a password and all your contact information.  (This only takes a second)  Then you can "continue shopping."  You can enter the item numbers in the search bar, and you will be directed to the information about that product.  When you are finished shopping (remember that you can order anything on this order, even items that are not being retired), then proceed to checkout. You will be asked in the lower left corner if you have a hostess code.  You will then put it in.. don't forget to click on "apply."  You can then place your order and it will be sent to you directly.  (The Hostess Code is something new from Stampin' Up! I will list it below)

And! there's more!  For every five people that place an order through the Hostess Code online, I will draw a name to receive a free gift!  The winner will receive a FREE stamp pad of their choice.   FUN!  In order to qualify for the drawing for the FREE stamp pad, you must place your online order, with the hostess code, by May 1.
  
The Hostess Code for Retiring orders is :  WBP9K3K9  

This code is not case sensitive.  You can just highlight it and paste it in the space provided when you place your order.  If you decide not to order online, you are welcome to send me your order through email.  Just remember that I may not be able to get your order in immediately, and the longer you wait, the less your chances of getting everything you want.
  
I have the links below for the retiring stamp sets and the retiring accessories. Look them over carefully and then place your online order for the things you don't want to miss!  Don't wait!  Many items are gone within hours!  Please let me know if you have any questions!

  
One more thing:  I have not yet had a chance to go through the submissions that were sent for the Retirement contest. I will notify those who participated as soon as possible.
