My Top Ten Retiring List Countdown!


Hi Friends! Today is the first day of my annual Top Ten Retiring Stamp Sets. If you haven't yet seen the Retired List click here. I encourage you to order your favourite stamps and accessories that are on this list ASAP. I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for 14 years and I can tell you that every year items sell out mega fast, especially the In Colours and accessories.  There were over 40,000 people trying to place orders the day the retired list was posted, so the website inevitably crashed a few times. It's all been fixed now though, so if you tried to place an order and had issues, give it a whirl now.

 Things to Remember

  • Accessories will be available while supplies last.  
  • Due to high demand for retiring stamps, Stampin' Up! will keep producing retiring stamps until May 22  (not accessories, which are only while supplies last).

Ok - let's get back to my Top 10 Favourite Retiring Stamp Sets.  For the next 10 days I'll be featuring one of these sets, with some samples created with them. I hope you'll enjoy! In no particular order, here is my first favourite retiring stamp set:

I cased this card from my dear friend Julie Brancart and featured it a Coffee and a Card class - it was a hit. We all just loved it.

Here's another card I made when I earned the trip to Hawaii with Stampin'Up! The seahorses are from the "By the Tide" stamp set and make the perfect embellishments.



 
The new 2016/17 Stampin' Up! annual catalogue 
will be out June 1st!!!
I've seen the new catalogue (definitely a demonstrator perk!) and it is absolutely awesome!!! 
In a couple of weeks I will begin pre-ordering copies and my new cases of catalogues will start arriving in mid to late May!  If you’d like to be one of the first stampers to get your hands on the new catalogue before it hits the street on June 1st, you can pre-order the book starting now! As soon as they're available for customers I'll begin mailing them out. There is a cost for catalogues (not to mention the postage) but for everyone who places a min $50 through my online store during April I'll send a FREE 2016/17 Annual Catalogue straight to YOUR door!  Reserve your free copy with your online order - simply make sure to use the HOSTESS CODE before you submit your orders:
