Huge Stampin' Up! Announcements today...

(if you miss it, it will be here, available for viewing - not a member of the group? click above and request to join)
The interwebs are abuzz with all the news from Stampin' Up! today!
First, let me say....DON'T PANIC!
Second, please don't believe everything you read on the internet - some people are misinformed and that's how rumors get started. Ask me about anything you see and please read any info I provide!!
Third, let me tell you what's going on....
1) There are several items that are increasing in price in our new Annual Catalog - more on that later (not a big increase - twenty-five cents - 1 dollar)...
2) Stampin' Up! has made the decision to discontinue our Trimmer as of June 3rd. Blades are still being ordered and shipped - the current purchase limit is 3 packs (6 blades), but that limit will be lifted to 6 on April 15th. These may go on backorder, but SU! will have more coming through September. There will not be a new Trimmer offering in our Annual Catalog. I will still be using mine - no reason to stop until the new edition is released (TBD).

3) Stampin' Up! has also decided to cut ties with our current Big Shot supplier and manufacturer (Sizzix). I have to say, I saw this coming. It has been disappointing that Sizzix has not been able to meet our demand for current framelits in the Occasions Catalog - there are currently 4 die sets that are no longer available, and I'm sure I don't have to remind you that we sold out of the awesome SAB-coordinating framelits pretty quick. The Big Shot and many of our dies and embossing folders will be on the retiring list. Again, I will still be using mine - no reason to stop until the new edition is released (also TBD). There will be new-style dies and embossing folders in our Annual Catalog - these will work with any die-cutting machine, I will make sure you are aware of any changes you need to make! I personally think the new-style will be easier to line up with our stamped images and I am sure we will be pleased with whatever SU! comes up with, because they have a proven record of giving us AWESOME products!
