In the current PaperCraft Inspirations, Stampin' Up! is offering a lage box of goodies to anyone who subscribes to the magazine, worth nearly £50! This includes card, stamps, ink, a couple of pastels and embelishments. If I didn't already subscribe, I certainly would now, I find the magazine is always full of new ideas.

Retiring Products

Today brings some sadness and some excitement.  Today sees the issue of the list of products that will be retiring from the current catlogue, some will be at reduced prices!  As with all sales the number of items will be limited, with the list updated daily I imagine some items are going to sell out pretty fast.  I will set up a link as soon as I can.

On September 11th I will be holding my Ipswich Retiring Party from 4pm to 6.50pm, come and pick up a bargain.  There will be make and takes, and lots of inspirational samples for you to see. You may even win the draw prize!
A number of the colours will be disappearing, if you love them you'll need to pick up your card, papers, inks and ribbons now.  To see the retiring colours, double click on the chart in the panel to the right.

Items retire, so that we can have brand new stamps, papers and ribbons and all sorts of lovely crafting items in the new catalogue.  I know that we'll be getting the new Contempo Christmas stamp set, shown on it's side below (whoops).

Although not as exciting, the way in which post and packaging is charged will also be changing from 1st October and the new catalogue.  There will be one fixed charge for p&p, no more working out the 5% of the value of the items, there will be a fixed fee.  It means that you can order loads of items for the same p&p as for one item, making buying more cheaper at no additional cost! (More on this later.)
