It probably comes as no surprise to you that the cost of goods for Stampin' Up!® has increased in the last few years. When the new catalog is released on May 1, so will some new prices. Stampin' Up! shares the following:
"We strive to provide you with the best paper crafting products and experiences, without sacrificing the quality Stampin’ Up! is known for, all while being mindful of cost and other important considerations. We regularly review our pricing, taking into account the cost of doing business, global exchange rates, increased supplier costs, and market comparisons. When it comes to making changes, we are conservative and put off price increases for as long as we can because we know they impact you..."

To reserve your new Annual Catalog from me, make sure to do so by Wednesday, March 29, by heading here: https://bit.ly/reserveannualcatty. Catalogs are free for pick-up and to my club members and $5 if you'd like yours shipped.
That's kind of a lot of products. With this in mind, if there are items on this list you are thinking about grabbing soon, I'd like to suggest getting them before the price increase. In addition, today - Sunday, March 26 - is the final day of my BOGO sale. Get the most bang for your buck by shopping TODAY! To remember how the sale works, you can head to my blog post about it. Shopping my online store will get you free retired items, thus doubling your stamping fun! Combine this with grabbing those items that will see a price increase soon, and it's a win-win.
One more exciting thing is that we are looking forward to a color refresh! What colors will come? What colors will go? What will be the new In Colors? So many questions will be answered on Wednesday when announcements are made to demonstrators, and I'll be ready to pass them on to you! Come back here to my blog sometime after 2:30pm Central time for all the details. I'll share the answers to the questions! Edited to add: You can find the details of the color refresh here.
Perhaps you'd like to wait until the new color lists come out to place your order. If some of your favorite colors are retiring, you can grab cardstock and ink refills of those colors, along with picking up other things that will increase in price on May 1.
There is quite a lot to think about as one catalog ends and another begins. Please contact me with any questions you may have. I'm here to get you through the transition!
