Stampin’ News…April 2019

Stampin’ Up! released some important news today. Grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and read all about it!  There’s a lot to absorb!

Retiring Product Lists Coming Soon

On April 15th at 1:00 pm the retirement list for the occasions and annual catalogs will be posted on the website.. These last-chance products will be available until June 3 or while supplies last only, so get your favorite items before they’re gone! We know that 2017-2019 In Colors are retiring for sure. In the past these items have sold out fast so if you need cardstock or ink refills for these In Colors get them now before it’s too late!2017-2019 In Colors Click HERE to shop retiring In Colors

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation

If you have the Stampin’ Trimmer, you will want to grab replacement blades right away. Because of on-going issues with the manufacturer, the trimmer, replacement blades and mats, will be discontinued. Right now you can order 3 sets of replacement blades per order. Starting April 15th, this number will increase to 6. Over the next few months, there will be small batches of inventory arriving and it’s anticipated to be depleted rapidly. Click on the images below to get them while you can! 

Die-Cutting and Embossing Product Line Changes

Stampin’ Up! is changing its die cutting and dry embossing lines. The new dies and folders will continue to work with the die-cutting machine we currently carry but in the 2019-20 catalog there will not be a die-cutting machine. I expect that one will be announced at some point during the year. After extensive research,
demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, Stampin’ Up! decided to move in a new direction and set the foundation for a greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity. One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, they are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process.

Upcoming Pricing Changes

The new annual catalog will debut in June and I want you to be aware of upcoming pricing changes.  While these increases are minimal and are mainly cardstock and envelopes, I want you to have the option to purchase these products now before the price increase. Click HERE for a complete list of individual product price increases in the upcoming 2019–2020 annual catalog.

Fun Fold Swap Card from Judy

I’m excited to share another beautiful card from my Fun Fold Card Swap! You are in for a treat as I share each of these cool fun folds. The collection of cards I’ll be sharing might not have current Stampin’ Up! products, but every card gives good ideas for color combinations, layouts, and techniques. Let the inspiration continue…

Judy made a Fun Fold Lever card and stepped it up even more by embossing the front of the card with the Sparkle Embossing Folder and weaving ribbon along the bottom. Double WOW!!
