Stampin’ UP! News and a Report from the Home Front

Lots and lots of things going on in the Stampin Up Universe as well as at my house.  First off, I  apologize haven’t posted since last week. My husband had knee replacement surgery on April 10 and I’ve been primary caregiver.  He is doing great with his recovery and exceeding the Therapist’s expectations.  His other knee will be replaced May 22.  It’s going to be a slow start to our summer, that is for sure….but I’m so glad he has gotten them taken care of and will not be in pain. Now to all the SU updates.

Retiring Items – Get them before they are gone forever

Now is the time of year when the new annual catalog launching in June is released to Demonstrators.  We are able to pre-order from it beginning in May.  (one of my favorite perks to being a demo)  With a new catalog comes a list of items retiring.  We are always sad to see some of our favorites go but they are leaving to make way for new items we will love just as much.  I’ve included the list of retiring items below. Retiring Items are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.  SO GET THEM NOW BEFORE THEY ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

Limited Time Bundled Pricing

There are lots of items carrying over into the new catalog – yay!  But, if they were part of a bundle discounted at 10% off, that bundle pricing will no longer be available when the new catalog launches.  What does that mean?  If you had your eye on a bundle but haven’t gotten it yet,  GET IT NOW at the discounted pricing.  After June 2 the products will still be available but you will pay 10% more.

A special note on retiring stamp sets…..

There are a lot of stamp sets on this list that are showing as retiring, but will in fact be carried over. Why???? It is because the stamp image is carrying over, but the mounting options are not. For example, a Red Rubber stamp offered in clear mount and wood mount in the old catalog will carry over and only be offered in the new Cling mount in the new catalog.  Clear as mud right?  All the red rubber stamps sets will be offered in cling only, whether they are new sets or carrying over sets.  But they still need to get rid of the old wood and clear mount versions.

To make it easier for you, I’ve created a list of all the stamp set images that are really retiring.Many of the entries below look to be duplicates with two different prices, those are the Clear mount and Wood mount codes.   To make it easier for you, I’ve created a list below of all the stamp set images that are really retiring.
