April Newsletter

The 2020 retired list is here!

Stampin' Up! has released the last chance list. Visit my website and see which projects are leaving. Shop early - retiring products are available while supplies last. Many items are on SALE!

Stampin' Up! has anncouced that Snail adhesive will be retiring. Gasp - I know! This adhesive has been in the product offering from Stampin' Up! since I started stamping some 17 years ago! Do not worry friends - a new adhesive will be coming in the June catalogue. I can not wait to see what it is like. I know Stampin' Up! has put it through rigorous testing and I am sure it will be amazing!

Blends are on the retired list - but - they are not going anywhere! Currently, you can buy blends in singles. The new catalogue will sell blends in duo packs. If you love purchasing single markers, do so now before they sell out!

A reminder that these 5 In Colors are retiring. Shop early for reinkers and cardstock as these tend to sell out quickly.
  • Lovely Lipstick
  • Grapefruit Grove
  • Blueberry Bushel
  • Pineapple Punch
  • Call Me Clover

I truly hope you are all doing well and are staying healthy.

It has been just about 40 days since we got the news that schools were closing. A lot has changed in that time, for all of us! My Stampin' Up! business is one of them.

I am still running my monthly stamp clubs - physical distancing approved! We are meeting on our club Facebook groups for a LIVE tutorial. I have been working hard to assemble kits to get them in the club members hands well before the date so they can craft along. Under the circumstances, it is going really well.

Stampin' is more than paper and stamps ... it really is our community and the friendships we create crafting together. I can not wait until we can be together again crafting, laughing and having fun. For now - online it is!

As for Stampin' Up! corporate - they are working tirelessly to ensure that orders are being fulfilled and shipped. After all, crafting is the best therapy and we all need a little therapy during this time! There are some items that are in a back order situation. This is a result of factory closures in China due to COVID-19. The good news is that all factories have resumed production in China and Stampin' Up! products are starting to flow!

I do hope that you are taking time for yourselves during this pandemic. Get stamping! It will make you feel so much better! Even better ... mail someone one of the beautiful cards you create!

Happy Stampin'!
