Stampin’ Up! Retiring List Tips

Filed under: Projects — April 10, 2018 @ 10:00 am

This is always an exciting time of year for me.  Demonstrators get to see all the new products and the Retiring List is released.  I’ll be featuring some of my favorites this month – one last hurrah before we say goodbye.

Retiring Products are available while supplies last.  I’ll be tracking the Inventory Status Report (#demoperk) several times a day and posting updates on my Facebook page for you.  So if you are susceptible to FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), the best way to keep up is to Follow and choose “See First” and/or “All On” for Notifications.  You also might want to get my newsletter -I’ll email you my free ClassCards Instruction Sheets filled with fun projects just for subscribing!


When you get to my shop, you can go right to the Last Chance Products tab to see what is retiring.  Or check out your favorites by entering the name or product number into the Search box.  In blue at the bottom it will let you know if it is retiring and if it is in low inventory like this Fluttering Embossing Folder.

**Note – the products in the Bundles category are going into the new catalog, but will not be at the 10% off bundled price.

**Note – all ink pads are marked retiring because of the new design.  But only these colors are actually leaving our color palette:

Here is a fun retiring stamp set:  Text Ya Later has 59 photopolymer stamps, both words and emojis, that you can use to make fun phone screens.  I don’t have this set myself, but had to put it on my wish list after receiving this swap card (made by Sarah Moomey) at Stampin’ Up! OnStage2018 last weekend (#demoperk).

And here’s another swap card I got from Lorraine Durrant.  I will be so sad to see the Flower Shop stamp set and Pansy Punch retire.  That has been a favorite for a long time.  Isn’t this a darling card?  She also used Beautiful Bouquet and Hello Friend (also retiring).
