Last Chance Tonight & What to Expect Tomorrow


This is just a friendly reminder that tonight is the last night to purchase select retiring colors and products from Stampin’ Up!’s 2017 Annual Catalog and 2018 Occasions Catalog. I’ve been mentioning it for the past month, but we all procrastinate a bit, right? As such, I’m giving you a gentle push as a last minute reminder.

There are some really great things that are going away at midnight (MT) tonight – and some of them are discounted. Please click below to check out all of the retiring items in my online store:

But the new colors that are coming in are SURE to be our new favorites.

Retiring Products

The retiring colors aren’t the only things that are going away. Lots of bundles, stamps, papers and embellishments are being retired, too – and some of them have already sold out. Here’s my Cliff’s Notes version of the retiring list:

  • All bundles from the 2017 Annual and 2018 Occasions Catalog will retire. While many of your favorite stamps and coordinating dies/punches will carry over, the bundled pricing will not.
  • The colors listed above will retire – inks, papers and markers. Any collections with these colors in them will retire, too (for example, the Stampin’ Blends Collection Retires because it contains Pink Pirouette Blends).
  • All of the current Classic Stampin’ Pads will retire to make room for newly configured, updated pads.
  • Basic Black Archival and Basic Gray Archival Inks will retire.
  • Some of the retiring items have been discounted, giving you more reasons to grab them up now.

Just to Name a Few

Here are some of the products I love the most that I want to point out to you so you can grab those up quickly:

  • Birthday Blooms stamp set
  • Fruit Basket bundle
  • Lovely Inside & Out bundle
  • Magical Day bundle
  • Marquee Messages stamp set
  • Message in a Bottle stamp set
  • Remarkable You stamp set
  • Vintage Leaves stamp set
  • You’ve Got This stamp set

Here are some other retiring items I love – you may want to pay attention to these:

  • Designer Series Papers
  • Metal Rimmed Pearls
  • Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies
  • Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies
  • Stamp-a-Ma-Jig

I hope these lists and links are helpful. I don’t want you to be left out in the cold when all of the items go away!

  1. My favorite pink. Probably my all time favorite color. ???????. Good bye Pink Pirouette, I will miss you!

    • I’m going to guess you will fall in love with Petal Pink, Traci. It’s so soft and so sweet – and warmer than Pink Pirouette. Give it time. 🙂 <3
