Well yesterday was a sad day, Stampin' Up announced the products that are retiring on June 30th, and among them were some of my very favourites like the following stampsets:
- Sense of Time
- Favourite Things
- Define Your Life.....just to mention a few.
The retiring accessories list includes some favourite punches like the spiral punch, the designer label punch and the small oval among others. However, the good news is that some of the retiring accessories have a discount applied (some have no discount, some 25% off and some 40% off). Retiring accessories are available only while quantities last so it's first come, first serve. Some good deals I noticed are: the presto patterns designer specialty paper is on 25% off, the wicked fun patterned paper (for halloween) is on 40% off and the hodgepodge hardware is 40% off. Also, there are quite a few dies for the Big Shot on the retiring accessories list, so if you have a Big Shot you will want to check that out.
There is also a long retiring list for Decor Elements. Stampin Up will be combining the decor elements flyer into the main catalog when the new Idea Book & Catalog is released on July 1st, so as a result they are streamlining their offering. This means a significant number of current decor elements will only be available until June 30th, so if you had your eye on one, you'll want to check out that list.
If there is anything you want from the retirement lists you can either place an online order (use this link) or you can contact me to place an order. I will likely have an order going in this Saturday at the retirement workshop. It's also possible that I might have another order going in around June 23rd when the Travel/Journal class takes place. Also, there are just a few spots left in this class, so let me know if you still want to register (cost is $20).
