Today was the big day when we all learned which stamps and accessories featured in the 2008-9 Idea Book and catalogue would be discontinued.
I'm gutted that two of my personal favourite sets, Summer by the Sea and Carte Postale have got the chop, but the good news is that there are some lovely new sets coming our way on the 1st October so watch this space for a new piccie appearing on the right side!
Anyway - a couple of things you should all know.....
1. Unlike last year, the retired list will not feature in the back of the new catalogue. You have until the 1st October to get your hands on the discontinued goodies, and with limited stock remaining, its very much a case of first come first served - once they are gone - they are GONE!!
2. There are also a few bargains to be had!
For the first time, there are some price reductions on retiring stamp sets and accessories. Yes, some last chance items are available with a hefty reduction you too can have a set of the gorgeous Carte Postale at 25% off and some items are actually 50% off eg the lovely For Father set
Check out the list or download a PDF of the list complete with the reduced prices on the Stampin Up website and get in touch with me to order.
If you haven't got a paper copy of the retiring catalogues check out the online versions here
As an incentive - I will send anyone who orders £50 or more worth of goodies (excluding P&P) this month a FREE copy of the 2009-10 Idea Book and Catalogue when it launches on October 1st (normally £4.95 + P&P), and of course - don't forget that these orders get you stamps on your loyalty card! You get a tick in the box for every complete £10 spent with me, and once you have collected 10 stamps, you get a Classic Inkpad or pack of A4 cardstock of your choice absolutely FREE!
