The Retirement list as the is very long and comprehensive as you may have noticed it can be easy to overlook some items that you didn’t realise were there, then along comes September and it’s too late!So here are some highlight you may have missed and reasons on why things are changing

STAMPIN’ SPOTS (25% OFF)- As of September,Stampin’ Spots will no longer be available in the colour collection colours.  These one inch square ink pads are a great way to have it all – instead of choosing which of your large ink pads to bring, bring them all!  Compact, and with the same ink as the larger pads, they’re a great way to get a bunch of colours at a great price!

(Brights, Subtles & Regals – $28.46, Neutrals – $23.21)


INK PADS (UP TO 40% OFF: $7.17-$8.96) – All the ink pads are listed as retiring due to a reformulation of the pad itself.  If you’re happy with the current, woven-style felt of ink pad now is a great time to stock up on some colours, with some discounted by 40%, and many by 25%!

INK PAD BUNDLES (25% OFF) – The most economical way to get them all is to order the entire bundle of colour collection pads in one go.  Even more so now that they’re 25% off!  Getting all ten ink pads from a collection in one shot works out to $7.21 per pad – such a bargain…

(Brights, Subtles & Regals – $71.21, Neutrals – $56.96)


INDIVIDUAL MARKERS ($5.95ea) – As of September, Stampin’ Write Markers will no longer be available individually in every colour.  Approximately two thirds of the individual colours will be retiring, so if you wan t the on colour rather than the whole colour family NOW time to fill them!

TEXTURED CARDSTOCK – The linen textured 12×12 cardstock will not be in the upcoming catalogue, so if you love it than you will need to stock up while you can.  Particularly on the current In-color collection (Pool Party et al), which is $25% off!

(All In-colors – $17.21, Colour Collections – $22.95)


STAMPIN’ PASTELS (40% OFF – $28.17) – So many techniques can be achieved with thisncolouring medium, and right now, they can all be for 40% cheaper!

CHRISTMAS FABRIC (75% OFF – $4.95!!) – Two sets of designer fabric (Deck the Halls and Candy Cane Christmas) are retiring out of this catalogue, and they represent the biggest savings to be had!  Score yourself some Christmas fabrics (three co-ordinating wide fat quarters per pack) for just $4.95 each!

CROP-A-DILE (25% OFF – $41.21) – Looking as though it would be more at home in hubby’s tool shed that your stampin’ stash, this is a great heavy duty tool with several features.  It sets different sized eyelets with a minimum of fuss, but my absolute favourite feature is the way it can punch holes in some very tough materials (chipboard, tin….) and in two different sizes too!

PUNCHES (UP TO 40% OFF) – This is just a small selection from the array of punches that we will be saying goodbye to at the end of the month (or sooner!), many of which have been our faithful favourites for several catalogues now.  Many of them are 25% off, with the Doily Triple Layer Punch going for a steal at 40% off, so grab a bargain today!

RIBBONS (UP TO 25% OFF) – This catalogue sees the last of the availability of several styles of ribbon – the Wide Striped Grosgrain (pictured left) the Satin Ribbon and the 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon.  Available in a great range of colours and with 25% off several of the colours of Striped Grosgrain, it’s a great time to add some ribbon to your stampin’ stash!

ALPHABET DIES (25% OFF) – The Simple Letters set of Bigz dies (left) is a fabulous, large set of letters – great for bold page titles and is going out for 25% off.
The matching set of Simple Numbers is also retiring and is similarly perfect for both scrapbooking layouts and also all those “age” birthday cards that you need to do 

2010-12 IN-COLORS (UP TO 40% OFF) – As is the case every year, it is time to say goodbye to the In-colors that have served us so well since they arrived two catalogues ago.  As you will have seen in the introduction, a number of the ink refills have already sold out, but you can still stock up on ink padscardstock (A4 and 12×12, plus textured), markersStitched-Poly RibbonGlimmer Brads and Designer Series Paper – much of it at 25-40% off!
