Whilst it's almost two weeks since the Brisbane Stampin' Up! convention finished up (which you would know all about if you've been following my Facebook page :-)), my little family and I stayed on for another week or so spend time with gorgeous friends who moved away from Perth almost three years ago.
It was a fabulously relaxing and fun-filled time, but as all good things must, it came to an end this weekend just gone, which was a long weekend in WA as luck and accidental planning would have it, so we had an extra day to re-group before returning to work and school.
So I'm back in my little stamping room, somewhat more rugged up than I was last time I was in here, and a good many stampin' things have been going on in my absence, not least of which is the 2013 Annual Catalogue Retiring List!
With less than a month to go until the all new Annual Catalogue is released into the hands of Aussie Stampin' Up! fans everywhere (we got one at convention, so mine is decidedly dog-eared already...), this month sees us say farewell to a good many items that won't be part of the Stampin' Up! product parade come the end of this month (or sooner if they sell out first!)
Many of the items are reduced and some have already sold out (that will teach me for going on a holiday at retiring list time...!)
To check out the items that will retire from the current Annual Catalogue, click on the links below:
By far the easiest way to shop from the retiring list is to head on over to the Retiring Products section of my online store, where you will know immediately if something is still in stock by virtue of the fact that it will still be listed in the store!
So if any of your favourite items are listed, I would encourage you to hop to it - products are only available while stocks last.
Don't miss out!
One of the stamp sets on the retiring list that was one of my absolute must haves when it first appeared in a mini catalogue a good couple of years ago now is the Aviary stamp set.
I'm a bit gutted to see that the Tiny Tags (wood mount/clear mount) stamp set and Jewelry Tag Punch that also make an appearance on this card are retiring too. They are very much "go-to" items for me... :-(
Of course, it goes with saying that the lovely Fan Fair Designer Series Paper is going too - the way the DSP does every year (although not always at 40% off! Get some...!!)
If you have any questions about the retiring list promotion or todays' card, please don't hesitate to get in touch :-)
