Retired Accessory List

Filed under: Projects — April 25, 2012 @ 7:53 am

It’s up and it’s huge this year!

Some tips:

-The best place to see the retired products (and with pictures) is to go to my online store and click on SHOP NOW and then RETIRED PRODUCTS.

-5 Colors are Retiring – Concord Crush, Blushing Bride, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz, be sure to pick up your ink refills and cardstock before they are gone.  The In Color markers are 40% off – so you will want to pick up a pack of those and one for a gift.  The 12×12 In color cardstock is also 40% off – it makes great 3×6 cards, 3×3 love notes and my favorite – mini albums.

-You will see other colors of Classic inkpads on the list – this is just because they are changing to an improved foam pad (no other colors are retiring).  However, all Craft ink will be gone except black and white.

-You will see other colors of cardstock on the list – this is just because all textured is being retired and some single packs of 12×12 will no longer be carried (they will still be available in color family multipacks)

-Some items are discounted (up to 70%), they are in a SEPARATE list than the regular price items.

-All Retired accessories are WHILE SUPPLIES LAST, so get them fast.

– I am giving a free stamp set for all ONLINE orders over $50 for the month of April.  I will send you the list to choose from after I get the order notification from SU.  It includes a bunch of SAB and hostess sets.

-Punches – a lot of punches are retiring – ticket corner,  large tag, butterfly, 5 petal and more.  Some of them are still available on the Clearance Rack in the old style – so get them there before they are gone.

– Markers – not all will be available individually, so check out the retired list if you buy them as singles.

-Big Shot dies – I am shocked at how many are going.  All the alphabets, the favorite matchbox die and all the Build a Bear dies.  A tip- when I entered the Bigz Bear #117977 it came up as $14.37, not the list price of $23.95.  This is a must have die if you have kids or grandkids.  There are also a couple of embossing folders if you are a fan like I am – Finial Press and Snow Burst (from the Holiday mini).

-If you are a My Digital Studio Fan, the DVD COllections are a great bargain – they were discounted as a bundle to begin with and now they are 60% off.  Info about a free trial of MDS is on my toolbar to the right.

-Simply Adorned and Decor Elements are being discontinued as product lines.

-Lots of brads are being retired – rhinestone, glimmer,  silver and gold –  what’s with that??  Better get them now if you are a fan.

-Spinner hands and heart treat cups are going – the matching stamp sets are going.

– Confetti White, Confetti Cream and Vellum are going.

– Stampin’ Pastels are going. 

-Be sure to pick up a Versamarker before they are gone #100901 for $3.25.  These are great for embosssing small spaces.

-If you love the 1/4″ grosgrain ribbon, it is only $4.95 for a huge roll and a bunch of colors are retiring, also some Satin and Striped.

– The wheel guide and storage cases are going!!

-The mat pack and piercer are going – I’m hoping these will be reconfigured into a new product.

-Scrub and paper cutter are being reconfigured.

-Decor Elements Vinyl sheets are GOING.  These are great for cutting with the Big Shot AND your electronic cutting devices.
