Stampin’ Up!’s Retirement List is live, and in addition to the 2018-2020 In Colors (which I wrote about in a previous post) there are hundreds of products listed. How to sort through it all and make sure you get your favourites? Here are some tips to help you.

1. Every Designer Series Paper from the 2019 Annual Catalogue and 2020 Spring Mini Catalogue is retiring – they are only available while supplies last.

2. Stamp sets are guaranteed until May 22, but retiring tools such as dies and punches are not, and some will go fast! Many of these (like the Starburst and Circle punches) are absolute staples for your craft room, so don’t miss out – get them before they’re gone!

3. For the first time ever, Stampin’ Up! has chosen to continue the bundle pricing on six selected bundles from the Spring Mini Catalogue.These bundles will still be available in the new annual catalogue:

Heartfelt Bundle
So Sentimental Bundle
Painted Poppies Bundle
Peaceful Moments Bundle
Mountain Air Bundle 
Timeless Tulips Bundle

For the rest of the bundles in the 2019 annual and Spring Mini catalogues, even if stamp sets and co-ordinating dies or punches are continuing, the discounted bundle price that saves you 10% will be gone after June 2nd. So for example, Forever Blossoms stamp set and co-ordinating Cherry Blossoms dies will both be available in the new catalogue, but you’ll see the Forever Blossoms bundle on the retiring list, because that bundle price will be gone. Below is a list of products that are continuing into the new catalogue, though the bundle price will be gone. Be strategic! If you know you’re going to buy these products anyway, you may as well get them this month before the price increases!

Grace’s Garden Bundle
Forever Blossoms Bundle
Last a Lifetime Bundle
Timeless Tropical Bundle
Under My Umbrella Bundle
By the Dock Bundle
Dressed to Impress Bundle
A Wish for Everything Bundle
Daisy Lane Bundle
Parcels & Petals Bundle
Good Morning Magnolia Bundle
A Little Lace Bundle
Path of Petals Bundle
Free as a Bird Bundle
Dino Days Bundle
Floral Essence Bundle
Band Together Bundle
Friend Like You Bundle
Bloom & Grow Bundle
Silhouette Scenes Bundle
To a Wild Rose Bundle
Sailing Home Bundle

Here’s a slideshow showing images of all the bundles listed above.

4. Then of course, there are the bundles that are FOR REAL retiring. These products are gone for good on June 2nd, and until then, they are “while supplies last”. So if there’s something on this list you must have? DON’T WAIT! Some items are already sold out!

Pretty Pavilion Bundle

Wish For It All Bundle
Above The Clouds Bundle

5. Stampin’ Blends are NOT RETIRING! You may have noticed that many Blends are listed on the Retirement List. This is because Stampin’ Up! has decided that Blends will only be sold in pairs from now on; no more singles available. They made this decision based on sales and ordering trends showing that customers prefer the combo pack, which includes one light and one dark Stampin’ Blends Marker. If you do a lot of colouring with your Blends, you may consider stocking up on the “lights” of your favourite colours; people tend to use the Lights about 70% more than the Darks. Single Stampin’ Blends Markers will be available until June 2nd or while supplies last. The Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter will be the only Stampin’ Blends Marker sold individually starting with the 2020–2021 Annual Catalogue.

Some more surprises ….

6. The Stamparatus is continuing, but Stampin’ Up! is discontinuing the sale of additional plates. If you want another pair of plates, get them now!

7. There is a new adhesive and refill in the new catalogue, which means it’s time to say goodbye to our beloved Snail adhesive. Both Snail and the refills are retiring and are only available while supplies last.

8. The Stamp Cleaning Pad and refill are retiring.

9. The Blue 3D Embossing Plate is being replaced by another plate that is exactly the same only not blue. If you have the blue plate already, don’t worry; it will work on the new die-cutting and embossing machine. If you don’t have the blue plate yet, don’t worry: there is a plate in the new catalogue that does the exact same thing.

10. The Hand-Lettered Prose dies are retiring. I bought these not too long ago and love them – I regret that I didn’t get a chance to demonstrate them at class before Covid came along and cancelled all my classes. If you like them too, don’t miss out!

I just had to play with the 2018-2020 In Colors one more time. All these colours are retiring on June 2nd – and if supplies run out before then, they will not be restocked. If you love any of these colours (and why wouldn’t you?), don’t forget to get your inkpads, refills, markers, cardstock, and embellishments before they are gone!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These colours aren’t the only things retiring – you can view the full retirement list here. Don’t wait to get your favourites! And when you look at the retirement list, remember – even if stamp sets and co-ordinating dies or punches are continuing, the discounted bundle price that saves you 10% will be gone after June 2nd. So for example, Forever Blossoms stamp set and Cherry Blossoms dies will both be available in the new catalogue, but you’ll see the Forever Blossoms bundle on the retiring list, because that bundle price will be gone.

Here are some cards and projects I’ve made with some of the items on the retiring list:

Stampin’ Up! is having a colour revamp! When a few core colours are changed, it’s a colour refresh. When many of the core colours change, it’s a colour revamp! Since there have been no changes made to the core colour offering since 2013, Stampin’ Up! decided 2018 is the year for a full colour revamp!

Here are the numbers:
• 27 of the existing core colours are staying
• 13 core colours are going away
• Adding 10 brand new core colours
• Adding 6 returning In Colors that will now be core colours (colours offered in the past that will now be available again – maybe some of your favourites are returning!)

The new colours will be available in the 2018-2019 annual catalog. The In Color offering will continue as previously, with  five new In Colors each year that are available for two years. The five existing In Colors from 2017-2019 will remain in the color offering. As usual, with the new catalogue there will also be five new 2018-2020 In Colors.

You can get inkpads, ink refills, and cardstock, along with other retiring products, at my online store. The store updates in real time, so as soon as supplies for an item run out, they won’t show on the store any more.

And here are the new colours!

And the full collection of colours available in the new 2018-2019 catalogue!

Which colour are you sad to say goodbye to? Which one are you not sorry to see retiring? And which new colour are you most excited to try out?

My answers are: Elegant Eggplant; Always Artichoke; and Granny Apple Green!

Want to make sure you receive a new annual catalogue when they become available in early May? Drop me a line to add your name to my list! In the meantime, be sure to check out the retiring items and grab any of those colours that you just can’t live without!


These beautiful colours are retiring this year! Clockwise from top left, they are Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, and Peekaboo Peach.

We know from experience that the In Colour products – inkpads, ink refills, cardstock, embellishments, and marker sets – are the first things to sell out at this time of year. If any of these are on your wish list, don’t wait! Place your order via my online store. If you use the hostess code below, you’ll get a free gift from me.

The retirement list will be available on May 15th. In addition to the retiring In Colours, all designer series papers from the Occasions and Annual catalogue will be retiring. All of these products are while supplies last, so don’t delay – place your order right away!
