Change Is Good: Stampin' Up! Retiring Accessories List and Berry Blossoms

Before I get to today's card, I want to share with you what we have gathered from Stampin' Up! regarding the long list of retiring accessories list.  Please keep in mind that the retiring products are ONLY AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  Many items are discounted!  That means items will sell out so PLEASE DON'T WAIT!


When you look at the retired accessories list, you'll note that all of our Stampin' Pads are listed.  This is for two reasons: (1) Craft Stampin' Pads will now only be available in black and white; and (2) we are introducing a new Firm Foam pad in our Classic Stampin' Pads with the 2012-2013 annual catalog.

The Firm Foam pads offer better ink coverage and, in turn, better stamped images.  They will be available for customer order on June 1.

In addition, please note the following changes in the new catalog, which explains some of the products appearing on the retired list:
  • Only select Stampin' Write Markers will be available individually (Stampin' write Markers in color collections will continue to be offered).
  • 12"x12" Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered.
  • 12"x12" Smooth Card Stock will only be available in select individual colors and color collections.
  • Any item with an asterisk next to it is being reconfigured.  An example of this could be repackaging, as in the example above of the markers.
  • Craft Ink Pads (other than the black and white per above) and Craft Refills will no longer be offered.
  • Classic Ink Refills (other than the retiring 2010-2012 In Colors) will still be available.
  • Stampin' Spots are being discontinued.  Stampin' Up! may possibly reconfigure and sell some of the Classic Ink Spots.
  • Other than the retiring 2010-2012 In Colors, the Stampin' Up! colors are NOT retiring.

Two items that were included on the Retiring Accessories List are not actually retiring.  The lists have been updated to remove these items:

208     108360     Craft Scissors

208     103579     Paper Snips

Thank goodness!  I cannot imagine my life without my paper snips! LOL!

A FINAL NOTE:  I have pretty much been one to embrace change and very excited that the new catalog will fill all of my stamping dreams of dishy new stamps, creative tools, yummy paper and splashy embellishments!

Now, without further adew, here is my card for today:

Tah Dah! LOL!
