There is so much information with Stampin Up this time of year, it's truly hard to keep up!!
As Stampin Up prepares for the launch of their new annual catalog, they clear out product to make room for the new! I am really excited to seeing the new catalog and I hope you are too!!!
Below is 2 lists of retiring products. One is for the Occasions Catalog and the second is the Annual Catalog. Please note there is a highlighted stamps on the list...these stamps will be carrying over to the new annual catalog in the new Cling Stamp format. I know it's confusing. They are just retiring the current way it's sold and bringing it back in the new cling.....if it's not highlighted on the list then it's completely retired and sold at while supplies last!!! SO if there is something you want...don't wait...Stampin Up has been selling out within hours on products!
Be sure to contact me if you have any questions.
DIE-CUTTING AND EMBOSSING PRODUCT CHANGES
We have some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line that will give us a better opportunity to support the long-term vision we have for the line. While we’ve worked with our current supplier for many years, we’ve had the opportunity to reassess this relationship. After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, we’ve decided to move in a new direction and we’re optimistic about this new course.
We strive to provide you with the best papercrafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations, including our Stampin’ Up! value of Innovation: We embrace the spirit of discovery by setting challenging goals, considering opportunities, emphasizing creativity, and having the courage to change as we strive to better our best.
Innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for. These are not insurmountable challenges, but they are taking time to resolve.
Because of these setbacks, we will not offer a die-cutting & embossing machine in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. We know this will create some challenges for you, and for that, we apologize. Our product development department is moving with responsible haste to work through this issue, and we will share more information as things are finalized.
However, we will offer new dies and embossing folders in the 2019–2020 annual catalog. Since we’re using a new supplier, the dies and folders will be manufactured differently; this means the way you use the new style of dies and folders will be a little different than how you used the old style. Both the new-style and old-style dies and embossing folders can work with any die-cutting & embossing machine (in some cases, adaptations like shims may be required because the gap between rollers on machines may vary slightly between manufacturers; this is explained more in our Q&A PDF below).
One of the significant factors in this decision is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, we are moving to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship. This means that we will work directly with the factories who manufacture our dies and folders instead of working with another company who then works with different factories. This gives us greater control and potential in the manufacturing process. Here’s one example of how that will work: having a direct-to-manufacturer relationship will better allow us to implement die and folder ideas we gather from you, our power users. When we gather feedback and ideas from you, we will now be able to work directly with the factories making the products to implement those innovative ideas.
So while the current situation isn’t ideal, we are setting the foundation for greater die-cutting and embossing opportunity in the future.
Beginning April 9, 2019

In communications, you’ll notice us transition away from our old-style die-cutting and embossing product names and start referring to them in our new-style names. See the Die-
