Retiring Colors – Last Chance List & Color Revamp Details

Just a few more details about the Last Chance List that went live yesterday –

I had planned on sharing another video tutorial with you today – but decided it might be better to answer questions about what is happening with the Last Chance List since many of you had questions. Please stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing that project with you. Mean while as I posted yesterday –

It’s that time of year again!  It’s time to say good-bye to some products from the Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Occasions and 2017-2018 Annual Catalogs. Many of you have had some questions about the ink pads on the list so I thought I’d clarify some information for you – please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have a questions. Hopefully the following will help clarify the list for you.

Last-Chance Products Information:

  • Please note: You may find it easier to use my Online Store during the Last Chance promotion for the most updated list of available retiring products.  Simply Click on the Last Chance category on the left there you will see which retiring items are still available since items that have been discontinued will not appear.

Important to note: As you review the retired list in the online store, you’ll see that all of our ink pads are being retired.  But that is only because the new easier to use and improved styled ink case, most of our colors are staying part of the color families.  Check out this graphic below to see what I mean.
