Published by under cards | Apr 10 2018

BIG news today with the release of the Retiring List and an exciting announcement about upcoming changes to Stampin’ Up!’s colour range. 


The Retiring List is Here

Select products from the 2018 occasions catalogue and 2017-2018 annual catalogue are retiring — and this is your last chance to get them!

What you need to know about the Retiring List: 

  • Retiring items are only available while supplies last and will be discontinued after 31 May.
  • Retiring items are eligible for Stampin’ Rewards with qualifying orders.
  • Retiring host sets can only be purchased using Stampin’ Rewards from a qualifying party.
  • You may see an unusually high number of ink pads and cardstock retiring. We have some wonderfully exciting changes coming your way including the long-awaited Colour Revamp (more info below), although you may just want to make note of the fine print at the bottom of the last page which indicates that some items will be ‘reconfigured’ (ie quantity or packaging may change). A symbol will show which items are being reconfigured.

Handy hints:

  1. Go through your catalogue with a highlighter to mark all the retiring items (that’s what I’ll be doing!). 
  2. Remember that items will sell out, so for up-to-the-minute accuracy your best bet is to use my online store
  3. You can search the online store to see which retiring items are still available – discontinued products will be removed.
  4. Check the RETIRING COLOURS listed below, and make sure you order any ink refills or cardstock that you need to stock up on.


Hurry, don’t miss out!


Colour Revamp



The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of colour. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on colour trends across different markets and industries. When they see changes happening, they review the colour spectrum to stay top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Colour Revamp!

Yay! Must admit, I thought this change might be happening. Back in 2013 they told us that changes would happen every 3 to 5 years, so it was definitely due.


The Details

There are still four colour collections, each with ten colours. There is also a new colour group called Basics.

In order to keep our colour collections to exclusive Stampin’ Up! colours, we moved Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Whisper White out of the Neutrals collection. We’ve also moved a few colours into the Neutrals collection, making it more exciting and colourful! Some colours are coming back and totally gorgeous NEW colours are coming! More news coming in the days and weeks ahead.


Returning Colours

Some of our most-loved In Colors® from earlier years are coming back and will be in the core colour collections! These include:

  • Mossy Meadow
  • Poppy Parade
  • Flirty Flamingo
  • Coastal Cabana
  • Mint Macaron
  • Blackberry Bliss

I know that many of my customers will be happy to see this!
