Time To Say Goodbye

It's that time of year!  Time to say good-bye to some select products from Stampin' Up!'s 2018 Occasions and 2017-2018 Annual Catalogs.   
This will be your last chance to get them.  Be sure to check out all the details below, then be sure to place your order sooner than later so you don't miss your favorites before they are gone!
One of my favorites that is retiring... snag it now if you haven't already!  Birthday Wit - page 9 Occasions Catalog.
Last-Chance Products Information:
  • Dates: April 9–May 31, 2018
  • All retiring items are only available while supplies last and will be discontinued after May 31.
  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, retiring stamp sets will be guaranteed available until May 25 (my birthday!!); all other products are not guaranteed and are only available while supplies last.
  • Retiring host sets can only be purchased using Stampin’ Rewards from a qualifying party.
  • Order Deadlines:  5/31/2018 - 11:50 PM (MT)
Retired Lists:
Please note: Stampin' Up! is recommending that you use the online store during this promotion for the most updated list of available retiring products!  You can search the online store to see which retiring items are still available; items that have been discontinued will not appear.  
Additional note: As you review the retired list and / or retired category in the online store, you'll see that all of our ink pads (style) are being retired.  Having said that - most are staying, but will be refigured in a new styled ink case.  See below about for more information about colors that will be going away.
  • On May 31, 2018, thirteen colors of our core color collection and the five 2016-2018 In Colors will retire and no longer be available.
  • If these colors are some of your favorites, you'll want to stock up on ink refills and cardstock.
  • Always Artichoke
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Island Indigo
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Pink Pirouette
  • Rose Red
  • Soft Sky

RETIRING 2016-2018 In Colors are:
  • Dapper Denim
  • Emerald Envy
  • Flirty Flamingo*
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Sweet Sugar Plum
*NOTE:  while Flirty Flamingo is retiring as an In Color, it will continue to be available as part of our core color collection.
Additionally - the ASSORTED cardstock packs, ink pads, ink refills, markers collections are "retiring" because the retiring colors listed above will no longer be included in those collections and will be reconfigured for the returning and new colors.

Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Tuesday!

  1. I had nightmares about all these color changes. I can handle the retiring sets but all this color stuff is making me crazy. I am glad to see Mossy Meadow and Mint Macaron back. Though Chocolate Chip is getting a little stale I still like to use it as I think we still need a good brown. Early Espresso and Soft Suede are fine but sometimes I need something in between. Oh what to do and do I really need some of those retiring colors of cardstock?

    1. I understand the color battle. They did this a few years ago after I just started with SU. I was heart broken when they took away Close to Cocoa!

      Good thing I held off on ordering some card stock I needed. I was going to order Marina Mist and managed to come to my senses and see the catalog online first. Whew! I refuse to buy stuff I can't sell. There's just no point. NOW, if I was making cards like you, it would be different, but the majority of my time I'm at work and can't enjoy just making multiples. I'd sure love to though.


Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog and leave a comment. I always love hearing from you and I promise to comment back, so come back again!
