Retirement List Update and more swaps

Yesterday's post contained an update of all the product that has now gone out of stock and therefore no longer available, and a more up to date list is below.

You may have noticed that all of the Stampin' Ink Pads are on the retirement list. Never fear, the only ones actually retiring as of 30 September are the 2010-2012 In Colors and also some of the Stampin' Spots. The reason why the list is so long, is that Stampin' Up! are changing the ink pads from felt to a firm foam pad. Other than that, the same colour ranges will still be available plus of course the new 2012-2014 In Colors.

In addition to the changes in the ink pads, all of the textured 12x12 card stock is being discontinued and some of the smooth 12x12 card stock will also not be available come 1 October. If you love our textured card stock then this is your last chance to get it.

Things have moved really quickly and I have already had a couple of customers who were not able to purchase all of the goodies that they wanted. It really is a case of first come, first served.

The following is the list of unavailable product as of 8.30 pm, 4th September.

I am loving the bundles that Stampin' Up! are making available in their catalogues. The Autumn/Winter Catalogue has 4 bundles that enable you to purchase the stamp set along with the matching framelit dies and receive a 15% discount.  
Don't forget to let me know if there is anything you would like from the Retirement List. 


  1. Love all the new stamps and papers from the catalogue. Will have to send an order. You aren't going to be at Ally Pally are you by any chance?

    1. Hi Dawn, I won't be there and to tell the truth I've not heard that any other SU demos will have a stand either.Got my hands on the new catalogue at the weekend. Lovely. I'll mail a copy to you once my supplies arrive. Fiona x
