The annual Retired Lists posted this week for Stampin' Up! merchandise and there are lots of changes coming--I'm so excited!
First of all, tomorrow is the last day to order from the Occasions Mini:
Speaking of the new catalog--lots of changes are coming to the way Stampin' Up! catalogs will appear. Some lines--Simply Adorned and Decor Elements are leaving for good.
Lots of the holiday oriented merchandise will now appear in the newly-expanded Holiday Mini coming August 1. There will also be another expanded Spring Mini from January to May 2013. So the annual catalog may seem a bit smaller, but the seasonal catalogs will be larger and last longer--what a great way to help us stretch our stamping dollars!
The new annual catalog, instead of starting July 1 will be available June 1! Yes, that means the current IB&C will actually end a month early on May 31--and here are the Retired Lists--this merchandise will be available only while supplies last.
When you see the list, please don't panic--all the wonderful colors (except for the 2010-2012 In Colors) are staying--but the Classic Ink Pads will now come in a great new reformulated pad that will give you even better, clearer stamped images! The matching markers will still be available in all our exclusive colors; however, starting June 1, only certain markers will be available singly--the rest will be sold only in color families.
I'm SO excited about the changes--and I'll have more info available throughout May (and I'll be sure to announce the five new 2012-2014 In Colors as soon as I can--I'm on pins and needles waiting until they tell us the color names)!
