Accessories Retired List is Here!

If you know me, I'm not a creature of happy, but actually like change.  That's why I'm not overwhelmed by Stampin' Up!'s retired accessories list.  It looks really big, but many of the items listed are just having a make-over.  Remember that the accessories list items are AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!!!  Many items are discounted, too.  Don't wait---when an item is gone, that's it!


Now, when you see the retired accessories list, you'll notice that all of the Stampin' Pads are listed.  Don't freak--it is because 1) Craft Stampin' Pads will now only be available in black or 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, which means better stamped images.  They will be available beginning June 1st.

A few other changes that should explain some of the products being retired:

  • Only select Stampin' Write Markers will be available individually (Stampin' Write Marker In Color collections will continue to be offered)
  • 12x12 Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered
  • 12x12 Smooth Card Stock will be available in select individual colors and color collections.
  • Any item with and asterisk * is being reconfigured.  
  • Craft Ink Pads and Refills will no longer be available (except Black or White)
  • Classic Ink Refills will still be available
  • Stampin' Spots are being discontinued
  • Only the 2010-2012 In Colors are retiring---no other colors!
Important Correction----Craft Scissors and Paper Snips are NOT retiring.

May 31st is the last day to order any of the retiring items.  It is best to order straight through my Stampin' Up! website to ensure that the items you want are still available.

Bright Blossoms

I can't seem to get enough of Stampin' Up!'s Summer Smooches, can you?  If you know me, I tend to only make cards that are quick and easy.  Life is too busy for me to spend more the 10-15 minutes stamping a card.  Here's another one that fits into that group---Notice too that you can simply cut the Decorative Lable Punch in half for this card.

Supplies:  Stamps-A Word for You, Summer Smooches; Cardstock-Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper; Inks- Lucky Limeade Pad, Island Indigo Marker, Lucky Limeade Marker; Accessories- Decorative Label Punch, Summer Smooches Fabric Designer Bras, Dimensionals, Paper Piercing Tool, 1" Square Punch (to make the tail on the greeting)---Susie :)
