So Don’t! Retiring Items can be part of your permanent stamp collection!
Stampin’ Up! releases one Annual Catalog and two mini catalogs each year. The Annual Catalog is released in the spring each year, and this year May 4th is the big day when the 2021-2022 Annual Idea Book and Catalog will go live!
To call this book a “catalog” is not doing it justice. It is a beautiful, glossy, 100+ page book showcasing the current offering by Stampin’ Up and it is also chock full of ideas. I use the catalog throughout the year for inspiration as I create new products. A new Annual Catalog is an exciting time–new products, including the In-Colors that we will be able to play with for two years, new stamps, dies, and suites, and accessories. To make room for all this new stuff, we sadly have to say good-bye to some products from the current book (otherwise the catalog would be double or triple in size!)
Stampin’ Up! released the “retiring” list last week and items are only available until May 3 or while supplies last. So be sure to check it out ASAP! Visit my Online Store and click on the Last-Chance Products Sale banner.
I will be posting products using retiring sets the during the whole month of April…so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any ideas!
About today’s card: The items used to make this card are from the Jan-Jun Mini Catalog, except for the die cut (not retiring!) and patterned paper to make the taxi–that is in the Annual Catalog. Note: Jan-Jun Mini Catalog products are available until June 30th. The Retiring list for that catalog will be released in early June (but I can already tell you this stamp set is NOT carrying over to the new book…sad! I love that taxicab, and REALLY love the sentiments in this stamp set.)
