Retiring Lists...2012 Edition!!!

All the retiring product lists have been released!  While I am sad to see some of my favorite products go, I am beyond excited to see all the fresh, new products Stampin' Up! has for us in the new Annual Catalog in June!

You can find the Retiring Stamp Set list here .
You can find the Retiring Accessories list here.
You can find the Retiring Definitely Decorative list here.

There are some things you need to know about these lists...

-First of all, you will notice they are HUGE!  This is because of a few reasons...the Annual Catalog will be about 30 pages smaller than before and most of our seasonal products will be offered in the Holiday Catalog.  The "holes" in the Annual Catalog will be filled with the two Seasonal Catalogs!

-The retiring stamps will be available until May 31

-The retiring accessories and definitely decorative will be available while supplies last.  Traditionally a lot of these products sell out quickly, so to avoid disappointment, I HIGHLY recommend you place orders for these products through my online store.  The retiring accessories list will updated daily at 4pm with what has sold out.

-You will also notice that a significant portion of 12x12 cardstock is on the retiring list!  Don’t panic!  Stampin’ Up! will still have 12x12 cardstock, but for the most part it will be sold in assorted packages.  Some of the most popular colors will still be available in individual packs.  This decision was based on sales of 12x12 cardstock.  Textured cardstock will no longer be available.

-There are two items in the Retiring Accessories list that weren’t supposed to be on there and will not be sold at a discount.  These are the Paper Snips and Craft Scissors.

-You will also notice that the individual markers are also on the list!  Again, don’t panic!  The markers will still be available in Color Collections and as a huge package (when you buy all of them together).

-We are not going to stop carrying ink…although when you see the list this may be what you are thinking!  All of our colors (with the exception of the 2010-2012 In Colors) will still be in the catalog.  Stampin’ Up! is simply changing the ink pad.  Rather than a felt pad, we will have a firm foam pad.  This will allow for a longer life for your ink pads as well as provide more even inking on your stamps.  Unfortunately, craft ink will only be available in black and white.

-The Simply Adorned and Definitely Decorative product lines are being discontinued.  We may still see a few seasonal items from these product lines offered in the Seasonal Catalogs, but as a whole, these two product lines will not be available when the new Annual Catalog comes out in June.

And, finally, you are going to want to mark June 2 on your calendar!  This is the date of my annual Rubber Garage Sale and Catalog Kick-Off Party!  More information will be posted under the Events tab.

Back tomorrow with some stamping for you.  Have an inspired day!
