Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out to me during this difficult time. Under normal circumstances my family would have been gathered together to mourn the loss of our loved one but during these trying times, that hasn’t been possible. Your words of support and encouragement have been so appreciated and I can’t thank you enough for your kindness.
The Retiring List was published several days ago and I’m the first to admit that it can be downright confusing. As I mentioned previously, Stampin’ Blends are NOT retiring but you will no longer be able to buy them individually in the new catalog. They will be repackaged as a combo pack only and the item numbers will change which is why they are on the retiring list. Big sigh of relief! But it is possible that once stock is depleted in certain colors that they won’t be available again until the new catalog debuts on June 3rd. Both Old Olive Light and the Old Olive Combo Pack have already sold out so if you don’t want to wait until June to purchase certain colors, I’d recommend getting them now.
When the current Annual Catalog went live last year, Stampin’ Up! transitioned to a new style of dies and the packaging changed along with new item numbers. Some of the dies in the current catalog still have the old numbers but will transition to new item numbers in the new catalog which explains why certain dies are showing up on the Retiring List but are in fact, NOT RETIRING. It’s my understanding that once stock of the old item numbers is depleted, a switch will be made in the store with the new item numbers. They are:
Nature’s Roots – on sale!!
The Woodland Embossing Folder is also on the retiring list but it’s NOT retiring.
