It's Time to Say Goodbye


It's time to say goodbye to some of our favorite products from the annual and occasions catalogues! Not only are many of the stamp sets and accessories being retired but 13 of our colors are being retired as well!

At On Stage SU! announced a color revamp. The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review their color spectrum to ensure that they remain consistently on top of the trends. Which is the reason for the 2018 Color Revamp!

In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, they decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover. It was time and I'm excited about the changes and I think you will be too.

Many of these colors won't be a surprise but there are a few that you may really miss - for me it was soft sky. I love that color and am sad to see it go. There are bound to be a few of your favorites on the list too.

The colors that will be retiring are:
  • Always Artichoke
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Elegant Eggplant
  • Island Indigo
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Pink Pirouette
  • Rose Red
  • Soft Sky
  • Tangerine Tango
  • Tempting Turquoise
  • Wild Wasabi
  • Wisteria Wonder
As well as the 2016-2018 In Colors:
  • Dapper Denim
  • Emerald Envy
  • Flirty Flamingo* - this color will be returning as one of our core colours
  • Peekaboo Peach
  • Sweet Sugar Plum
Ready to see the whole list of retiring products? You can find them at the links below.



Whenever colors are retired, there is always some confusion about the status of various products in those colors. Stampin' Up! wanted to be sure that you have a chance to buy retiring ink pads and refills before they are gone. They have worked with their vendors to ensure that they have a period of guaranteed stock before the retirement date. This means that even if an ink pad/refill goes on backorder during that guaranteed time, those orders will be fulfilled.

However, after that guarantee date has passed, those products in retiring colors are available while supplies last. Please see the chart below that details this. It also shows how other products with retiring colors will be handled.

If there are items on the retiring list that you'd like to order, feel free to order them online so that you don't miss out on any of them. Use the host code below and with a minimum $50 order, I will send you a little gift in the mail as a thank you. Note: if your order is over $200 do NOT use the host code so that you qualify for Stampin' Rewards.


If you are out of town and you place an order online with me between April 1st and 30th, I will also send you a copy of the 2018-2019 annual catalogue when it becomes available. If you are local and have placed an order with me, or do in April, I will also have a copy of the catalogue for you available to pick up at my catalogue launch on June 1st and 2nd. 


Have a creative day,
Sherry
