"I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing." ~ Dame Agatha Christie

Retired! Huge Changes Coming for Stampin' Up!

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:

Some of these products may reappear in the new catalog June 1, 2012, but there is no guarantee, so if you've waited until the last minute, it's time to order now ;-)

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)!
