Mini JJ Catalog Retiring List with Discounts AND New Kits Collection

Hello Stamping Friends,

Hostess code for June:  YQHHJA29

With the start of the month of June comes two special new events:

  1.  The retiring items in the JJ catalog- some with 50% discounts- are now available for ordering
  2.   The new kit program is up and running and you can order kits

Tell us the details quick so we can order before they sell out!

The JJ Mini Catalog (JJ for Jan-Jun) expires on June 30.  Pam Snyder has taken the list from the Home Office and made it more readable.  There is an Excel spreadsheet with four sheets to choose from –

  1. By Category
  2. By % of Discount
  3. By page #
  4. By French products

The tabs for the sheets are at the bottom of the Excel spreadsheet.

Pam also reformatted the home office file as a pdf file so we can look at it that way.

LARGE FONT_Jan-Jun-2021-Mini-Catalog-Last-Chance-Products_discounted PDF File

I bet you had to pay her a lot for those files.  It took a lot of work to reformat. 

No, Sal, she made them available to all of us on the Facebook Demonstrator page.  Thank you, Deb Snyder!  “The generous soul will be made rich!”

Stampin’ Up! has a brand new option for kits.  They used to have kits in their catalogs but now there is a special website where you can order kits and never be afraid that they are sold out.  If it shows on the website –it is available!  As kits sell out new kits will be added on a regular basis so check back often!

Stampin’ Up! has taken the guess work out of creativity and done the hard parts, and you get to do the fun stuff: craft!  Each kit is all-inclusive and includes the predesigned projects, preprinted pieces, and even the adhesives you need to complete the projects.  With some kits you have inks and with others all the parts are preprinted for you.  You choose what you like!

Does this mean Paper Pumpkin kits are going away?

Not at all, this is just a different option and some of these first kits are actually popular kits that Paper Pumpkin sold.  The nice thing is that you get to see what you are ordering.  With Paper Pumpkin your kit is always a surprise and some crafters need to know what they are getting without the surprise.  I have found that Paper Pumpkin just keeps getting better and better and the surprise kits are beyond my expectations.

Retiring Products in Annual Catalog

Hello Stamping Friends,

The products from the annual catalog that will be retiring were posted today and some have amazing discounts!
There are three things to remember as you look at the lists:
  • Most (not all) the bundles retire, as do suites, but the individual stamp sets and dies may still carryover to the next catalog
  • All the In Color 2019-2021 products retire
  • Everything is available only while supplies last

I have provided a link to the online store so you can scroll through the product pictures but be careful to note if it is a French set that is listed and not the English.  Many times the French retires but the English set carries over.

Here is a pdf link if you prefer going through your catalog page by page:

The hostess code for March is   A3VBV4QZ.

I hope you can grab some special sales and check off that wish list!

The new catalog goes live May 4.

Last Chance Products

Hello Stamping Friends,

It is that time of year when we say goodbye to the old and prepare to welcome the new!

The annual catalog will be kapoot as of June 3rd.

   That is a long ways off!

Well, it does seem like it, since April feels like it has had about a hundred days and May will seem the same.  The good news is that we have a list of products that Stampin’ Up! has shared with us to know what will NOT be in the new catalog.

There is a pdf file with page numbers so you can go page by page or an Excel file to sort the list if you like to work that way.  I find the easiest way to see what products are retiring is to go to my online store and click the link on the left side of the page to view all the products by picture.  Just be careful not to panic when you see things like the Stampin’ Blends as being discontinued.  On the pdf file at the very bottom are these details:

When Stampin’ Up! reconfigures a product, they give it a new number, accordingly they show the old numbered product as discontinued.

Bundles with their 10% discount are always discontinued after their first year of introduction, but that does not mean the stamp set or the punch/framelit with which it is bundled are discontinued.

So look for the stars beside the list of products.

  Click on the catalog to view pages:

 

 

 

 

   

     

 

 

    I went to sleep while you were trying to get all those links done.

Well, wake up and check out all those products that will be forever gone.

Hostess code closing Saturday, April 25, is:  RH4REUGF

Year End Closeout/ Discounted Items/ Carryover News

Hostess Code:  FPDMJ4X9

Hello Stamping Friends and Merry Christmas from Sal, myself and Frosty,

It’s that time of year!  Grab your wish lists ’cause you do not want to lose forever the things you want.  Products are available while supplies last so don’t delay!

You could also fill out this sheet and give it to someone who can’t decide what to buy for you for Christmas!  I will help them!

   And if you have just a little money left there is always the Clearance Rack. 

Good thinking, Sal, sometimes we need just a little something to push our order to $150 so we get 10% in free products!!

   And Paper Pumpkin past kits!

 

Three full kits and one refill!  The Winter Gifts Kit has 24 Christmas tags but many stampers have posted youtube videos of using the tags and making a full card.  That is my goal!  24 cards from this kit plus 10 from the previous kit and I will be almost half way to having my Christmas cards completed!!   Join Paper Pumpkin HERE to be able to purchase the kits.  December’s “Something for Everything” kit includes a super-versatile stamp set complete with 13 sentiments that can be used for occasions ranging from wedding, to get well, birthdays, and more! Plus, the three full-sized card designs (four of each) are gorgeous!  Be sure and join by December 10th to get this month’s kit with 12 all occasion cards.

   So all the products not listed on the Retiring Favorites will be in the June 2020 catalog?  

No, for the first time ever, the carryover products are in a “future publication”, meaning the June Annual Catalog or next year’s Holiday catalog.

Any bundles that were in the Holiday Catalog will be discontinued – as bundles – but the individual products may still be available.

Retiring Products Announced

Hurry Stamping Friends,

Grab your wish list and see if any of the products you have wanted are being discontinued.  There are a few things we know for sure:

  • All the products associated with the 2018-2019 In Colors are being retired.  Check out my previous post here. 
  • The Big Shot and accessories as well as the Stampin’ Trimmer are being retired.  Check out my previous post here. 
  • All the bundles will be retired.  The individual products may carryover to the new catalog but there will not be a 10% discount.
  • The Designer Series Papers will be retired.
  • All clear mount and wood mount stamps – except the large background wood stamps- are being retired.

The lists make it look like every single stamp set is being discontinued but this is not the case.  The clear mount is transitioning to cling mount.

This is a list of stamps that will carryover to the new catalog in the new cling mount:

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The first announcement of retiring products!

Hello Stamping Friends,

Stampin’ Up! is moving to a stronger position in the market.  They are eliminating the middle man for their die cutting and embossing machine and going direct to the manufacturer!  Accordingly the “Big Shot”, as we know it, will be retired along with all its accessories. 

I am listing everything that is “Big Shot” though it is an assumption at this point based on the announcement today that just said the machine and accessories.

The Stampin’ Trimmer is also being retired.

     

Currently we are allowed to buy three sets of blades for the trimmer.  When the retirement list comes out on Monday, April 15th, we will be able to buy six sets until they are depleted.  As always, they will be available as long as supplies last.  I recommend stocking up on the blades and the Big Shot cutting pads.  Stampin’ Up! is still working with the manufacturer so the new catalog will not have a die cutting and embossing machine.  Until the new one becomes available we need to get supplies for what we have.  Change is hard but it will be worth it!  The Stamparatus is a cut above the competition and I am sure the new SU die cutting and embossing machine will be the same.

The ‘In Color’ inks, refills and paper will be the first to sell out so be sure you have the stock you want to carry forward.

I will post the retired list Monday so be watching!

The current hostess code is KTHPFHPP.  Order $75 using this hostess code and receive a set of Gingham Daisy cards similar to these designed by Janice Laroche!

 

As always,

SAL,  Stamp A Lot with the Stampalosopher

Awesomely Artistic Eclipse Card & Discounted Retiring Items

Hello Stamping Friends,

We have discounts on some of the retiring items!  Click here for a pdf file of all the discounted products- some are 50% off!

I chose two of my retiring favorites to make an Eclipse card – the stamp set “Awesomely Artistic”, page 153 in the Annual Catalog, and the color Island Indigo.  In my usual monochromatic style I did cards for Mother’s Day, thank you cards and friend cards.  Her are various fronts and insides of the cards -the inside could just as easily be the outside of a card.

The Glitter Enamel Dots, #144200, matched the Island Indigo perfectly and added sparkle.  (There will be Glitter Enamel Dots in the new catalog but with different colors.)  The dragonfly is colored with the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, #141897, and the flower centers are a drop of glue from our Fine-Tip Glue Pen, #138309, with Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter, #133751, sprinkled on top.  The For You greeting comes from the retiring stamp set “So Many Shells”, page 38 of the Annual Catalog.

Instead of Glitter Dots you could be a bit eclectic and use the stamp from the “Awesomely Artistic” set that has dots.  The greeting, “From Across The Miles”,  is a stamp in the retiring “Holly Berry Happiness” Christmas set, page 118.  I used a sticky note to cover up the Christmas Wishes words on the stamp, inked the stamp, removed the sticky note and stamped.  Voila- a greeting to use any time of the year.

Or just stamp the flowers a little on the edge of your front layer:

The insides of the cards were fun to customize.  My daughter is expecting her first child so this is her first Mother’s Day.  A greeting in the “Special Celebrations” stamp set was perfect:

The Daisy Delight stamp set on page 127 had the ideal message for the many thank you notes I needed after my father’s passing.

For dear family and friends, the Occasions Catalog “Petal Palette”, page 23, has the perfect message:

And of course Mother’s Day is coming up so I went back to the Special Celebrations stamp set for a special message:

Card Base:  Whisper White 8 1/2″  X 5 1/2″  Scored at 4 1/4″

Island Indigo Layer:  5 1/4″  X 4″, Make two

Whisper White top layer:  5 X 3 3/4″, Make two

Stamping Order for the top is a bit critical so you don’t have the images running into each other:

  1. Stamp the greeting at the bottom
  2. Stamp the dragonfly
  3. Stamp the flowers

Color the dragonfly with Wink of Stella, then line up the Large Letters Framelits, #141712, spelling HUGS on your stamped top layer and run through the Big Shot.  Adhere all your layers and then put Foam Adhesive Strips, #141825, on the back of the cut out letters and glue the letters back in their respective spaces. Helpful Hint:   I adhered the letter framelits to a large sticky note and then placed the sticky noted letters on the top layer so I could use it over and over without realigning the framelits each time.
I checked Eclipse cards on Pinterest and found so many words that were used:  HOPE, LOVE, YOU, WISH, BDAY, MOM, BABY, BOY, DAD, GIRL, GIVE, NOEL, (NAME), (DATE), JUST, FAITH, JOY, 4EVER, EPIC, BEST (friend).  Graduation cards with dates are popular now using the retiring Large Number Framelit set, #140622.   The Large Letters framelits will carryover to the new catalog but not the numbers set.

Have fun making your own Eclipse cards!

SAL,  (Stamp A Lot, Smile A Little, Share A Love- and always be Salt And Light in your world)

Retiring Products and Color Revamp

Hello Stamping Friends,

Grab your wish list and click to view pictured images of the retiring products:

Note:  When a bundle retires, the associated products may not necessarily retire.  They will be in the new catalog if they are not listed in the other categories but they will not be bundled for a 10% savings.

Don’t panic as I did when I saw all the ink pads that were listed.  We are doing a complete color revamp that is just amazing.  Along with new colors we will now have new ink pads with a new ink formula that won’t foam.
