Changes are coming….

Chlnges are coming! Keeping up with design and manufacturing trends is something Stampin’ Up! has always done. This is what keeps them on the leading edge of style and design trends. An example of this is the Color Palette, specifically the InColors. In Colors are on trend colors introduced for a 2 year period. With each Annual Catalog (the beginning of June) 5 new colors are introduced, aptly named for 2 year period in which they will be available. And 5 colors are retired. As we prepare to say goodbye to the 2017-2019 InColors, please note all items in these colors will retire and are now only available while supplies last. Shop the retiring 2017-2019 In Colors here.

More changes to come have been announced regarding some of our tools.

The Stampin’ Trimmer is being retired when the current catalog ends. I have always felt that is one of the best, user-friendly trimmers on the market. You can order a Stampin’ Trimmer here before they retire, and don’t forget to order extra Trimmer blades too. There is a current quantity limit of THREE on blade packages (set of two per package).  On April 15, the limit will be increased to SIX (set of two per package). 
A replacement trimmer or paper cutter will be released in the future (date to be determined).

Also being retired is the Big Shot die cutting & embossing machine, and all of it’s accessories. You can purchase a Die Cutting & Embossing Machine here now. A new die cutting and embossing machine will be introduced in the future (date to be determined) – I can’t wait to see what’s coming!

NEW DIES and EMBOSSING FOLDERS: We will still offer dies and embossing folders, but you’ll see some improvements to these items in the new 2019 Annual Catalog too. You can read all about the new dies and embossing folders here.

Several stamp sets will be retired as well to make room for new stamp sets. The Retired List will be posted next week. I will be heading to Atlantic City, NJ for the OnStage convention today and will be getting my 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Stay tuned to my Facebook page for sneak posts and posts from OnStage. I will also have giveaways for many of my posts so make sure you comment on my posts as well.

Talk to you soon! I’m sure there will be more changes coming that I’ll be telling you about!


The Wait is Over….

The MOST ESSENTIAL tool any crafter, especially a paper crafter, must have in their craft room is a paper cutter.  And a top rate paper cutter is the most indispensable tool.  Clean cut edges will make your paper crafts look professional and neat.Paper Trimmer

When the 2012-2013 catalog was released, Stampin’ Up! included a new paper cutter even though they said it wouldn’t be available until the fall.  Well, the time is NOW.   As of Nov. 1st, this new paper cutter is available for customer purchase.  My paper trimmer (#126889) was added to my order PRONTO, and I’m happy to give you TWO THUMBS UP!!   I am in love!  It has SO MANY FEATURES that other paper cutters don’t – it just rocks!  It was most definately worth the wait.

To demonstrate, here’s a video produced by Stampin’ Up! showcasing all the features of this new trimmer.

So, you can order  your new Stampin’ Trimmer here just in time for all your Christmas Card making. (We both know that we are going to be cutting alot of paper in the next few weeks).

This makes great gift too for anyone who enjoys paper crafts. So, start thinking of your gift list, and also feel free to share this post and video with your paper crafting friends & family (or drop hints for your wish list, too! Let your spouse and kids and co-workers know what you want). Feel free to Pin this, Tweet this or Share it on Facebook but don’t keep this secret to yourself.
