Thought I would share with you all that the Stampin' Up! retirement list is out this morning!
Those of you new to Stampin' Up - they are really great quality, deeply etched self asemble stramps. They pride themselves on co-ordinating everything.
There are some real bargains to be had as they have, unusually, dropped the prices of some of the items.
Some real highlights for me on the list are:
Page 26 - Flaky Friends - dropped to £22.95 plus P&P (was 25.95 plus P&P) for 8 Christmas stamps - these are fab for cards for all and there are some really cool colouring techniques that can be done with them
Page 30 - The Snowflake Spot - dropped to £18.95 plus P&P (was 20.95 plus P&P) for 7 snowflake stamps - great for Christmas and some winter birthdays. just thinking of these embossed in white on acetate - wow wow wow
page 36 - Year After Year - dropped to £26.95 plus P&P (was 29.95 plus P&P) for 8 all occasions stamps - personally I think this is a real shame. I love this kit as you can cover so many occasions with it. Kids birthdays, baby welcome, Christmas, adult birthdays, valentines, graduation, Christmas, wedding, anniversary and Halloween! This is a real bargain at about 3.50 for each fab quality wood mounted stamp! This was the set used for the workshop last month with the elephant in it!
page 38 - Be Happy - down to £18.95 plus P&P ( was 20.95 plus P&P) for 6 stamps - great for cards and scrapping - especially kids pages.
page 46 - All Naturals - £15.95 plus P&P for 6 stamps - very nice classic nature set. and Nature's Wonders only £12.95 plus P&P for 4 fab stamps that are crying out for a watercolour technique. ( these were £17.95 and £14.95 plus P&P)
Page 54 - Shapes & Shadows - absolute bargain at £26.95 plus P&P ( was £29.95 plus P&P) for 12 stamps - SOOOO sad this one is on the list as am sure it is a winner! This one gives you loads of flexibility, covers all the seasons - spring - flower summer - butterfly autumn - leaf and winter both tree and snow flake. it also provides some lovely little background stamps as well. have just ordered this one for myself as such a great deal. it is a two step stamping technique which yields fab results! Think this one will go very fast!
Page 66 - Headlines - Down to £36.95 plus P&P (was 41.95 plus P&P))for 28 alpha plus ? and !. I have this set and it is just great for scrapbook and cards! really great quality ( as are all SU stamps) and the flat surface makes kiss stamping a dream! ask me for more info on this technique if you are new to it!
Papers and scrap kits
All patterned paper sets of 12 papers on pages 72 and 73 are down to £7.75 plus P&P - were £8.50 plus P&P
The scrapbook kits on page 77 are down to £15.50 plus P&P were £16.95 plus P&P
Simply Sent kits - page 75
I cannot believe the bargains that can be had here! these are down to £39.95 plus P&P - that's a saving of £10 as they were £49.95!!! All you need to make up to 20 cards for that price and you have the kit left over to replicate the projects with some extra card and ribbon. THE HAPPY DAYS KIT is really good as flexible on birthdays and Christmas.
These would make a really great Christmas present for a crafter as all boxed up and looks very good as well as being a great complete kit for some fab techniques.
Sad to see the chipboard on 79 is on there as well - £11.75 plus P&P for floral and £10.25 plus P&P for alphabet - these were 12.95 and £10.95 plus P&P
Hodgepodge set reduced by £3.20 to £21.75 plus P&P
