If you are new to Stampin’ Up, today is the day we love and dread all at the same time!   SU needs to make room for exciting, new stamps and accessories in the upcoming 2017-2018 annual catalog.  That means we say goodbye to some that will be retiring.

Important details to know:

  1.  Stampin’ Up will continue making the retiring stamps until May 22, 2017.  After that they will be while supplies last.
  2. The accessories are ‘while supplies last’ – some go super fast and some may appear on the Clearance rack later.
  3. If you really want it, get it today.  Order online in my store or email me to get it ordered quickly.
  4.  The last day of the retiring products will be May 31st 2017.

I thought I’d highlight some of my favorites and must-haves that are retiring.  Please refer to your printed list to see ALL items retiring.

Butterfly punches have been a staple for years but they are retiring! If don’t have either of these, get ’em:

(by the way, the set of 3 Butterflies Thinlits will be going up $2 in the new catalog)

These punches are leaving –  the Owl Punch is a big surprise!  I think he’s timeless:)   My guess is he will sell out quickly!   The ones in RED are my recommendations if you don’t own them yet:

1/16 Inch Handheld Circle Punch

1/16 Inch Handheld Circle Punch


I’m so sad!  I LOVE the Crumb Cake envelopes but they are retiring…

The 5 outgoing ink colors – if you have any of these ink pads, be sure to add these to your order:

Here are a few staple thinlits and dies I have used a lot that are retiring. ( this is not the whole list of dies, so check the full list!)

Demonstrators gathered together all over the world this past weekend for a conference. I attended the Savannah, GA event with friends and team!

It’s an inspiring get together to get some sneak peeks of upcoming new product in our annual catalog, which debuts June 1st!


The first night was a reward for leaders on my team, with a lovely dinner and training.  Here we are enjoying the sunshine and the view of River Street (and the tall guy you may know got in there somehow:)   The 2nd day, Saturday, was all about the new catalog!

Speaking of the Brian, he rocked the Savannah stage showing a fun new stamp set you will see in June in the new catalog:

The 2 samples below from the same set were created by Nancy Smith in Boynton Beach:

I was DELIGHTED with the new catalog!   So many new and innovative things to show you in June!   One of my favorites was the new Color Theory Suite….love the paint deck color inspired papers!  And this stamp set will be hot and all over in no time!  It’s on our demonstrator preorder list and I’m sure you will be seeing projects soon with it on Pinterest and blogs.   If you have been thinking about joining as a demonstrator for the first time or rejoining, any of our new catalog preorders can go into your starter kit – think on it!


Here’s an easy idea using these color theory papers….this one was created by Nancy Smith also:

And I love lemons so I’m excited to see a lemon punch:)  This pretty art was created by Nancy also:

Lots to show you later!  For now, grab your highlighter and start looking at the retiring lists to see if you need anything you’ve had your eye on!
