Sharing Stampin' Up! OnStage Mpls: Swaps, Make & Takes, Loot

Last Saturday I had the pleasure to spend the day with over 1200 demonstrators (of which 18 were my STARS!).  Why?  Because Stampin' Up! was in Minneapolis, practically my backyard.  And as always - the event was fabulous.  

The Make & Takes

There's always time at a Stampin' Up! event to create with new products coming June 4th.  Below you'll find our four fabulous make & takes!

The best part is spending time with my DOstamperSTARS team...yay! Below you'll see our swaps.  We swapped at the event, then several came back to my classroom and we had a shoebox swap too!

Let's Talk Cutting Tools: Stampin' Trimmer & Big Shot

I know for some of you, you may have been alarmed to discover that the Big Shot and Stampin' Trimmer is being discontinued.  And, I've been receiving questions of why and more.

In today's post, I'd like to share more information regarding these decisions by Stampin' Up! and what the plan is for transitioning to replacement products.  Hopefully this will help you understand their decisions.

Retiring Big Shot Products 

If you've seen the retired list, you may have noticed that the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and Accessories are being discontinued (though, not dies and folder)

Stampin' Up! is making some big changes to our die-cutting and embossing product line.   After extensive research, demonstrator feedback, and evaluation, they've decided to move in a new direction and are  optimistic about this new course.

Unfortunately, innovation requires risk, and in our pursuit of a better overall die-cutting and embossing product line, we’re experiencing more significant challenges than we originally planned for, including some transition issues.  These will take more time to resolve.  We know this may create some challenges for some of you, and for that, we apologize.  

Below are the Big Shot "basic" products that will be discontinued:

 

Retiring Stampin' Trimmer Products & Transition

We have decided to retire the Stampin’ Trimmer as of June 3, 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. We’ve experienced challenges with our supplier and are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer.

There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated timeframe.  

Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades
currently unorderable,
will be available
on/off until September
 

Replacement cutting blades

Stampin' Up! has ordered Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades, what would normally be six months of inventory based on recent historical patterns to help Stampin' Trimmer owners during this transition.  We have increased the order limit for the blades from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). 

From now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier.  Throughout these months, we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During those downtimes, you will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.  (I recommend doing this, so you don't miss out.  See graphic below)

Get on the email list for Stampin' Trimmer Cutting Blades #dostamping #stampinup

I hope you found this information helpful. 

For me, I'm planning to continue to use my Stampin' Trimmer and Big Shot, both personally and at classes, with current and new dies/folders coming in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, I'm also very excited to see what is coming...I LOVE new stuff!

If you have additional questions regarding these products, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them for you.

In the meantime...Get Your Last Chance Products!

Tips for shopping the Retires List:

If you've never gone through a Stampin' Up! retired list before, let me give you some pointers:

  1. If you have any bundles from the Occasions or Annual Catalog on your shopping list, get them NOW.  Even if the individual products carry over, the bundle price will not.  (Bundle pricing is only good for the catalog they appear in first)
  2. Retiring 2017-2019 In Color products tend to sell out fast.  So stock up on paper, ink refills, ribbon and more - sooner than later!!
  3. Products only available while they last.  

Be sure to shop the RETIRE LIST early so you don't miss out on your favorites!

Enjoy~Dawn O
