Stampin’ Up! April Paper Pumpkin Kit

Ohhh…the April Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up! is fantastic!!!  The kit is call Sentimental Rose and it contained all of the items needed to make beautiful notecards with matching envelopes and a box for gifting the card set!

The kit included the exclusive Sentimental Rose stamp set and a Gray Granite ink spot.

And here are the amazing cards and envelopes!

They were super quick to stamp and assemble and I love the designs!

This is the pretty gift box with the belly band (included in the kit too!) all wrapped up and ready for giving!

Stampin’ Up! Retiring List – Updated!

Yay!  Stampin’ Up! heard the concerns and confusion and they’ve updated the retiring list for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog with the current stamp sets that will be carrying over to the new catalog (just in cling-mount rather than clear-mount or wood-mount) highlighted in gray.

  • Click here for the updated 2018-19 Annual Catalog Retiring List.

Sorry again for all of the confusion!! Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

The retiring list has been a bit confusing.  So sorry for that!

It looks like every single clear-mount and wood-mount stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Here is the list of stamp sets that WILL be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The stamp sets on this list will not be retiring, they will simply be transitioned to Cling Mount moving forward: Continue reading
