Retiring list

WOW ---- Has it really been 5 months since I posted anything?????  I am so sorry!!    And now it's time for a new catalog to come out.

Stampin' Up! posted the retiring lists today.   Check out the link on the left side.  This will take you to the list.  This is the biggest list ever!  There are over 200 stamp sets on the list!   These sets will only be available until May 31, 2012.  After that --- they are gone!

The retiring Accessories list will be out April 25th.   There is not much telling what will be retiring on that list.  Come back on the 25th and check out that list.   Those items will be on a "first come, first served" basis.   Meaning that when the stock of an item is depleted (prior to May 31st),  it will no longer be available.

You may be asking why there is such a large number of sets retiring.    Well part of the reason is that Stampin' Up! is making a change in their catalog management beginning with the new catalog.   In the past we have had the one main Idea Book & Catalog with around 240 pages and 3 "mini-catalogs"  Beginning June 1st - there will be the main catalog with about 208 pages and 2 seasonal catalogs with about 40 pages each (8 1/2 X 11 size).  The two seasonal catalogs will last for 5 months instead of 4 now.

Though I'm sad to see some of the sets go --- I am excited to see what new sets will be in the catalog when it is released June 1st.

Oh --- don't forget too that the 2010-2012 In-Colors will be retiring too.  If you remember, five In-Colors are introduced each year and are available for 2 years.  Well it's time to say goodbye to -- Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz, Concord Crush, and Blushing Bride.  What 5 new colors will they have for us this year???  We'll just have to wait & see!

Again, I'm sorry that it's been so long since I visited with you.  I'll try to post a picture or two in the next couple of days of some things that I've done lately.

Happy Stamping everyone!
