Pam says: Wowie, wow, wow. Looks like LOTS of changes coming up. Get the things you love now, I honestly can't even guess what that new catty is going to have in it, if this much stuff is being discontinued. Here are the lists, and below the "official" word (i.e. this is all I know) from the SU Demo website.
Retiring Accessories Excel Version
Get them before they are gone! The retired accessories and Definitely Decorative (including Décor Elements) lists are now available and won't stay around for long--these items are only available while supplies last!
When you look at the retired accessories list, you'll note that all of our Stampin' Pads are listed. This is for two reasons: (1) Craft Stampin' Pads will now only be available in black and white; and (2) we are introducing a new Firm Foam pad in our Classic Stampin' Pads with the 2012-2013 annual catalogue
The Firm Foam pads offer better ink coverage and, in turn, better stamped images. They will be available for preorder for Demonstrators on May 1; in the meantime, you can learn more about this change here.
In addition, please note the following about the new catalogue:
- Only select Stampin' Write Markers will be available individually (Stampin' Write Markers in colour collections will continue to be offered)
- 12" x 12" Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered
- 12" x 12" Smooth Card Stock will only be available in select individual colours and colour collections
