Hi Crafty Friends!
Spring! It's such a fun time of year! Especially in the Stampin' Up world.
And I have lots to share with you.
So, today SU released the retiring list, these are items that will no longer be available after May 31 or sooner depending on availability. If there's something you've had your eye on, now would be the time to order, especially if it's any of the retiring in-colors.
Like any business, we need to let go of some things so that we can offer new products and continue to innovate. Stay tuned for more info below.
You can click HERE or the graphic below to see the retiring list.
Shopping now? Please use host code N9W72SQ2. Keep on reading for more info and go all the way to the end to see my birthday month special.
Let's talk about our color revamp. We are changing up our color families. Some colors are retiring, some past colors are returning, and there are some new colors. Whew, it's a lot!
But for good reasons. SU's current ink pad molds were getting old. So, they could either make the same ones or innovate. Of course they chose to innovate, right? I mean most of us aren't driving around with a big road atlas in the car anymore.
The new ink pads have lots of pluses. They are easier to open, they're stackable, and they have a new formula to prevent foaming (which sometimes shows up as bubbles on the ink pad and on our stamps/stamped images). All great things! We can keep using our current pads. We can supplement by adding in the new colors as desired. The only thing we shouldn't do is use current re-inkers on new pads. So let's take a look at the colors.
First up, Flirty Flamingo which is one of our retiring in-colors is staying on as a core color.
Let's take a look at our revamped core color families.

And now here's a closer look at our new core colors.
And finally, the funnest part, let's look at the new in-colors!
It's all pretty darn cool. Color is such an amazing thing! I'll be sharing more as time passes.
Our new catalog is coming soon! Demonstrators who attend the On Stage event (like me!) get to pre-pre-order. I'll be sharing my new stuff soon. All demos get to pre-order in May. So that we have time to make samples and prep for open houses and classes.
(Remember you can join my team at anytime)
AND customers get to order new stuff in June!
Need a catalog? If you attend classes in the Crafty Corner, you'll pick one up in May when I get them. Live farther away? I'll ship you one! If you've ordered from me in the last year, I'll ship it for free. Haven't ordered, no worries, just pay the shipping ($7) and it's yours. If you are a totally new customer to me, your first catalog and shipping is on me. I want to share my store with you.
Finally! My birthday month special.
Today, the 9th is my birthday! So, for the rest of the month of April, I am offering a free gift with purchase. I know, I'm giving you gifts and it's my birthday. So cool. Place an order of $35 or more using the host code, N9W72SQ2 (through 4/22 at 8pm) and you can choose a pack of deminsionals (either size) or our linen thread. I'll send it to you in a handmade card. Ordering after the 22nd, no worries, I'll post a new host code.
I think I've covered everything. Questions, comments? Let me know.
