Sold Out Retiring Products List & Trimmer Cutting Blade Info


The cutting blades are backordered at this time.  The number has been turned off but if you go in to my Stampin' Up! ordering website  (CLICK HERE)  and set up an order and put the number in, it will give you the option to receive an email when they are back it stock!  You don't have to actually process an order to do this.  This way, you'll know when the next shipment is received in the warehouse.

There are very few products on the Retiring Lists that have sold out so far.


NOTE: Stamp Sets that are carrying over to the new catalog in the new Annual Catalog in the newer cling design are noted with an asterisk

Updated Retiring Product Information

Stampin' Up! has updated the Annual Catalog retiring list that notes stamps that will be carried over to the 2019-20 Catalog as a "cling" stamp.

Stampin' Up! has added an additional flyer that has ONLY the stamps that are carrying over in the new "cling" style.  These stamps in "clear mount" and/or "wood mount" are listed on the retiring lists.  This list should help you in your decision as to the stamps you can wait to purchase from the upcoming catalog.

The stamps that are from the Occasions Catalog that are carrying over that are already in the updated "cling" style so no edits were needed for the the retiring list for the Occasions Catalog.

Another GREAT Paper Pumpkin kit coming!

The May Paper Pumpkin kit will be another special kit!
This one will be designed by Shelli Gardner!
The box gives you an idea of what's inside the kit.

We had a chance to make one of the cards from the kit at the On Stage event this past week end!

I chose 2 different stamps in the included stamp set to make my card.
It is a GREAT stamp set that you will use over & over!
Even the included envelopes are beautiful!

Check out Shelli's video to see more about the May Paper Pumpkin kit.

2019-2020 Annual Catalog News

The 2018-2019 Annual Catalog & Occasions Catalog retiring lists will be posted on April 15.  I will have them posted as soon as possible.


Stampin' Up! will be dealing directly with a manufacturer for our dies & embossing folders!
No more "middle man"!

This will mean a few changes.  Because Stampin' Up! will no longer order them through Sizzix, the names will change.  They will be MUCH simpler names!

The alignment is improved in that the die lines up along the actual stamped image. This will enable us to know our border edge is even all around.
All of the dies & embossing folders are compatible with the Big Shot.

AND  a new die cutting & embossing machine is in the works for Stampin' Up!
There is no date at this time for release.

Because Sizzix products will no longer be in the Stampin' Up! catalog, this includes the Big Shot and all plates & accessories. These are available in other craft stores so this should not be a problem.

Paper Trimmer Retiring

"We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe. Once we feel confident in the new offering, we will communicate more details with you about the new product.
While the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalog, we have ordered what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help demonstrators and customers during this transition away from our current trimmer. But please know that this news could cause faster inventory depletion. When the retiring list goes live on April 15, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you and your customers will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again."

There are a few items with price increases in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. This has to happen every few years.  Nothing major though.  I wanted to let you know in case there are products you need right now and can save a little bit.  Don't panic when you see the list!  It isn't that much.  Cardstock was increased .25 and every color is listed separately!

If you go to the bottom of the right column of the price increase page (link is above), you'll see the New In Color Cardstock colors listed!  The names of new Designer Series Paper and some other new products are listed too!!

Sold Out Products Update

The Following Products Are No Longer Available

Sale-A-Bration Free Products
#149623  Organdy Ribbon combo Pack
#149750  Precious Parcel Card Kit
#149712  Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick Foil Sheets
#149711 Butterfly Elements

Sale-A-Bration Coordinating Products
#150072  Call Me Cupcake Thinlits Dies
#150073  Hop Around Framelits Dies
#150071 Lily Framelits Dies

Due to complications with our die supplier, we’ve run out of the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies (item 148553) in North America and they will not be available in the future; this item will retire with the 2019 occasions catalog and because of these complications, we will not be able to replenish inventory on this item. If you placed an order for these dies while the item was on backorder, your order will be filled as soon as possible.
We anticipate our inventory may soon be depleted on a few additional dies that will retire with the current occasions catalog. The dies listed below will retire and will likely run out before the end of the catalog sales period.
If we sell out of these dies, they will no longer be available to order:
  • Wonderful Floral Framelits Dies (item 148529)
  • Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies (item 148549)
  • Detailed Birthday Edgelits Dies (item 148548)
We are also concerned that we may run out of a few dies that will carry over into the new annual catalog. If this happens, they may go on backorder or may not be available to order until we are able to replenish the inventory.
We recognize that this is frustrating for you, and apologize for the inconvenience you are experiencing. The last thing we want to do is disappoint our demonstrators and their customers, so we are working on solutions to improve the situation with this product line.

There are 2 products that will be available for sale in the upcoming 2019-2010 Annual Catalog that will be released in June. 
The past couple of years, Stampin' Up! has carried over select "tools" that have been offered as free products in the Sale-A-Bration promotion.
This year there are 2 "tools" and BOTH are being carried over!
#149697  Tea Time Framelits Dies
#149698 Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
