Retiring Colours in Gift Bags

Hi there

The current 2014-2015 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalogue is nearing the end of its life – it finishes on 2 June.

To make way for new products here are many things that will not be in the next Annual Catalogue and today Stampin’ Up!  have released the Retiring List with the following statement:

We’re saying goodbye to retiring products from the 2014–2015 annual catalogue, but before we do, we’re giving everyone an opportunity to order their favourites with discounts up to 50 percent off retail. Retiring products will only be available until 2 June, or while supplies last, so now’s a great time to contact your customers and let them know they’ll need to get them before they’re gone! We’re also including the My Digital Studio list, with all products discounted 30 percent off retail.

There are many items I am going to miss not being able to purchase – including the 2013-2015 In-Colors.

Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush

I’ve loved these colours and if you do too, now (like today if possible) is when you should order them before they sell out. If you already have an ink pad – don’t forge to get an ink refill – they will allow you to re-ink your pads many times as well as being useful for lots of colouring options themselves.


At my recent Sale-A-Bration Celebration (an event people could earn an invite to by Shopping, Hosting or Joining with me during Sale-A-Bration) I made gift bags for attendees using these colours. They then got to make the cards that went inside as their Make’n’Takes.

Here is the table all set up ready to go.

2015_04_creativeJax_SAB_Celebration_WorkTable_collageIt was a fun, busy table – two could work at each station. So there was plenty of chatter going on among everyone.

Here are the 5 different cards along with a close-up of the work stations for each.


I had made the gift bags using the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.

I found Designer Series Papers (DSPs) in the same colour for each of the five colours. I used one matching DSP on the front of each bag while several of the cards also had matching DSP too.


I got the DSP from a range of different DSP packs – Sweet Dreams, Confetti Celebration, Maritime, Lullaby and All Abloom. Again – don’t you love how things match across the Stampin’ Up! product range! So easy to mix and MATCH!

Everyone got to make 4 cards – so they ended up with all 5 In-Colors – one as the bag and one card each of the other 4 colours.

So here are a couple of other pictures of the evening.

2015_04_creativeJax_SAB_Celebration_colourGame_collageWe played a “Name the Colour” games – lots of laughs here – this was much harder than I thought it would be!

And of course desserts are our thing, so Beth had put together a Dessert Buffet – complete with Lemon Meringue mini cupcakes, homemade chocolate, choco-mint cheesecake and fruit kebabs.2015_04_creativeJax_SAB_Celebration_Dessert_collageSo all in all a fun evening was had. We look forward to planning next year’s Sale-A-Bration event. Maybe you will join us.
