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!

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

As always, thank you!  Dawn O

The 2018 Holiday Catalog has been so popular that some products may sell out soon.  We just received an update from Stampin' Up! regarding the following products that are in "low inventory" status:  

  • SNOWFLAKES & STARS WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147819)
  • SANTA'S SIGNPOST FRAMELITS DIES (item 147911)
  • CHICKEN WIRE ELEMENTS (item 147807)
  • ALPINE SPORTS THINLITS DIES (item 147916)
  • SINCERELY SANTA PROJECT KIT (item 148029)
  • FESTIVE FARMHOUSE COTTON TWINE (item 147888)
  • 5/8" STRIPED BURLAP TRIM (item 147889)
  • DETAILED LEAVES THINLITS DIES (item 147921)
  • IN THE WOODS FRAMELITS DIES (item 147919)*

  • MERRY CHRISTMAS THINLITS DIES (item 147912)*
  • FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES (item 147922) 

What does that mean?  Good question.

  • It means that these items may sell out in a few weeks or even in a few days. 
  • There isn't time to get additional product in time for the holidays, so these items could potentially sell out. 
  • Exception: * these items will be in a future catalog, but unavailable until then if they sell out.

If any of these products are on your shopping list, be sure to add them to your shopping bag today!  (click on products to shop online)

Sales for the following products have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a large number of backorders.  We have made the decision to shut these items off effective immediately.

Stampin' Up! Updates: Clearance Rack, Fast Fuse, Not-orderable Items

Several update from Stampin' Up!

Woohoo!  It's Clearance Rack update time, your favorite time of the year!

Stampin' Up! clearance rack has been update - shop for savings up to 60% at http://bit.ly/shopwithdawn #clearancerack #stampinup #craftsupplies #dostamping

Clearance Rack Refresh

  • New items have been added to the Clearance Rack in the online store!
  • Supplies are limited, and with discounts up to 60%, products will go quickly.
  • Shop now and stock up.

 


Fast Fuse is back for a limited time

Fast Fuse Adhesive
$10.00
$6.00

Fast Fuse Added to Clearance Rack (while supplies last)

If you’re like us, you thought the days of Fast Fuse were done at Stampin’ Up! (You know . . . because we had already retired the product and everything!)  However, our vendor reached out to us because they manufactured a surplus of Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and they offered to sell their excess Fast Fuse inventory to us.

One of the reasons we decided to buy this product was because of feedback we received from customers who still wanted to purchase Fast Fuse applicators and refills, and this was the perfect opportunity to make it available to them once again through the Clearance Rack.  

 


Items Approaching Not-orderable Status

Sales for the following holiday catalog products have exceeded our forecast and are continuing strong, resulting in a significant number of backorders. It will be at least 30 days before these items are back in stock.

  • 147905: Santa’s Workshop Memories & More Card Pack
  • 147807: Chicken Wire Elements

These products will remain available until Wednesday, September 19 at 10:00 AM (MT).   After that time, they will then be placed in not-orderable status - for a estimate of 30 days. 

Additionally, when you enter item numbers for these products, you will receive a pop-up notification asking if you would like to be notified via email when these products are back in stock. This will allow you to find out immediately when the status changes for these items and they are again available for purchase.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stampin' Up! Systems Update:

I know it's a BIG day for Stampin' Up! with the launch of the Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Promotion.  If you've been trying to access my online store to be the first to shop, you'll have found that it is currently down.  

Here's a message from Kim Fifita, Corporate Communications Manager at Stampin’ Up!:

“We’ve got a bit of a situation going on right now: *All* of our systems are currently down, including ordering, shipping, and the website–and leaving us with no way to contact you! I know it must be so frustrating for you–this is a big day! We have all of our best people furiously working on the problem, but in the meantime, please help us spread the word.... We will post updates as soon as we have more information.”

In addition, this technical problem may delay my Product Share delivery timetable.  I will keep you posted when I know more.

Thanks for your patience~Dawn O

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Common questions I receive about joining Stampin' Up! and the STARS!

What are the minimum sales requirements? 
You only need to submit $300 in sales per quarter. That is less than an average Stampin’ Up! workshop! Also, you can submit your sales in any increment you wish and still receive your 20 percent discount and commission. 

What if I want to do this as a hobby and not necessarily a business? 
Stampin’ Up! supports all demonstrators, no matter their goals or the level at which they choose to run their business. If you choose not to hold workshops, you can simply place your own orders and/or collect orders from family and friends to equal the $300 quarterly sales minimum. NOTE: Many of the demonstrators in my community of STARS are just that, a hobby demonstrator. If that describes you - you'll fit right in!

Can I be my own hostess? 
Absolutely yes, you can be your own hostess anytime you want. Invite your family and friends into your home and have a workshop. You will be the hostess, receiving the hostess benefits, as well as the demonstrator benenfits, receiving your instant income and commission. Or just submit orders of your own that total $150 or more! 

Do I have to recruit other demonstrators? 
No, you are not required to recruit. If you were to sign up new recruits, you would be paid override commissions on their sales. This is a perk, not a requirement

What if I decide that I don’t like it once I’ve started? Will I be penalized if I quit? 
You may choose to stop at anytime, and you will not be penalized. You simply stop placing orders.

Let me just say - in the short amount of time I've been playing with these, I've come to really enjoy these new markers.  There is no right or wrong way to use them.  So, if you love to color, but don't enjoy working so hard to get "just the right look", you are gonna love Stampin' Blendabilities!
