I don’t have a crystal ball. The Retiring List won’t be posted until April 10th. But you can be pretty confident that the 2015-2017 colors will be retiring May 31st and they frequently sell out before the catalog period ends. And experience tells me there are other products that will soon be gone forever.
2015-2017 In Colors
If you want Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, or Watermelon Wonder Classic Ink, Stampin’ Up! Markers, card stock, or any of the Designer Series Paper or embellishments with those colors, you better get them now. And don’t forget to stock up on those Ink Refills so your stamp pads and Markers never need to dry out.
Designer Series Paper
Add to this list the Designer Series Paper (DSP). The big color family paper stacks are often carried over into the new catalog and sometimes one or two other DSP designs are too. But other than the Regals, Brights, Subtles, Neutrals, and 2016-2018 DSP stacks, if you want the current DSP, buy it now. It’s likely to be gone soon.
Stampin’ Up! is not likely to carry over any bundles. The individual products may or may not be in the new catalog, but you won’t be able to save that 10% bundle price after May 31st.
I will post the Retiring List as soon as it’s available.
I don’t normally post on Tuesdays, but I don’t want you to miss out on this news. There was a surprise announcement of more products for Sale-a-Bration. You can buy these products from the catalogs at their usual price or you can get them free using these special item numbers. It’s true, you do need to put in a qualifying order ($50 in the US) to pick one of these. Or you can put in a $350 order and get all seven of these items free. You just have until March 31st for these or any of the Sale-a-Bration items and they are “as available.” The Card Tins and 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper are already gone. Don’t wait!
Just remember to use these item numbers or the links below.

I was playing with a variation for idea for an upcoming Paper Play Day and I thought it would be the perfect way to let you know that Santa (the UPS guy who wears brown shorts) might bring you three new presents! In addition to the twelve Sale-a-Bration in the brochure, there are now an additional three.
Keep your stamping tools and adhesives clean! Sticky Snips are frustrating. Keep them clean and sharp! Ink on your stamp pads can migrate to your projects. Solve that problem of stamps falling off the blocks. Make that Silicone Craft Sheet look as good as new. No more using bad words. Keep it clean!
I thought you might like to have the list of products that are being carried over from the Holiday catalog. Some of them are listed in the Occasions catalog, but not all of them. These products are still available.
We all get inspiration from things we see. There are just a few projects I've shown that are CASEd (Copied and Shared Everything). Most of my cards come from a technique I've seen many places and I've made it my own in some way.
I post photos and directions so you can get inspiration. It's OK to copy them for personal use, but hopefully you will make it your own in some way. If you copy my ideas exactly, please give me credit for it. Do not sell any of my directions or organizing tools.
