The Stampin' Up! 2012 Last Chance Stamp Set list is here! Can you believe a year has almost passed already since its debut? I surely can’t! Actually since Stampin’ Up! is making some significant changes to the Idea Book and Catalog the Last Chance Stamp Set List has been released 6 weeks sooner than usual.
In case you haven’t heard, the current Idea Book & Catalog will be retired on May 31 NOT June 30.
Starting June 1, 2012, Stampin' Up! will release one annual catalog, comparable to (but smaller than) the current Idea Book & Catalog, and two seasonal catalogs, comparable to (but larger than) the current mini catalogs. The annual catalog will run from June 1, 2012 through May 31, 2013. Which means the current Idea Book & Catalog will end on May 31, 2012 NOT June 30th!! There will be NO Summer Mini catalog. Instead there will be a Holiday Catalog and a Spring Catalog.
- The first Holiday Catalog will run from August 1, 2012 through the beginning of January, 2013
- The first Spring Catalog will run from the beginning of January 2013 through May 31, 2013.
- Plus the Décor Elements and Simply Adorned product lines will be discontinued :( These items are while supplies last, so order them now while they are still in stock. Once they are gone I cannot get them for you.
The Last Chance Stamp Set List is 2 pages long! ( Click here for a downloadable PDF version). There are a lot of great stamp sets that are being retired. Get them now while you can! Some of my absolute favorites and go-to sets are going bye-bye! including:
Every Tuesday for the next 6 weeks I will be featuring one of my favorite retiring products. – Oh, BTW – the Last Chance Accessory List will be released on April 25, so be on the lookout for that. The accessories sell out quickly – consider yourself warned – don’t dilly dally ordering something that you really, really want from that list.
Ok, back to my Tuesday plan….every Tuesday from today through May 29 my blog post will feature 1 or more of my favorite retiring products. Today’s feature stamp set is Inspired By Nature. I LOVE this set. I am so sad to see it go. I love coneflowers – they are one of my favorite flowers!
To create this card I was inspired by (no pun intended – lol) a card sketch from the May/June 2012 Paper Crafts magazine. The flower is stamped in Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive and Basic Black. The patterned paper is from the Paisley Petals DSP. (BTW I would assume the Paisley Petals DSP will be on the accessories last chance list).
The next card is an oldie but goody – one of my go-to cards and reason why I purchased the Inspired By Nature stamp set a few years ago.
The yellow coneflower aka – Black Eyed Susan!
