Color Refresh, Free Shipping deal… Big Stampin’ Up! Announcements!

Good morning! Look at what posted on the Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator website this morning, I couldn’t wait to share it with you:

DO YOU DREAM IN COLOR? WE DO!
April 4, 2013
Announcing our Color Refresh! We love color and we know that you do too. Color is fundamental to who we are and what we offer. It’s important for us to stay up-to-date with color trends so we are thrilled to share our updated line of colors, and hope you will be as excited as we are by the new possibilities!

Why now? In 2010 we did a big color renovation and shared our plans for smaller color refreshes every three to five years to keep our colors on trend. Well it has been three years and we are excited to announce that the upcoming 2013-2014 annual catalog will include 10 new colors (most of which are returning In Colors from previous years)! We are welcoming back some of your favorites, moving some colors around, and introducing one brand-new color, so take a look!

Beginning on April 4, 2013, all retiring/discontinued color products (i.e. ink, paper, ribbon, accessories, etc.) will be available only while supplies last. This means that some products will not be available through the retired list period. We did anticipate increased demand and based our forecasts for these retiring colors on historical sales information from previous color transitions. However, even with the most careful planning, the response to a transition of this nature can surprise everyone- our retiring color products are only available while supplies last so get their favorites and look forward to the exciting colors coming in the 2013-2014 annual catalog.

And also announced today, free shipping is going on April 6-8, 2013, which would be a great time for you to get your favorites before they are gone! (Free shipping is for North America only.)

With that great announcement, it’s time for another Lynnzcrafters contest:

Lastly, here is an announcement from SU yesterday afternoon:

WATERCOLOR PENCILS AND CRAYONS DISCONTINUED
April 3, 2013
Due to unforeseen problems with our supplier for Watercolor Wonder Crayons and Watercolor Pencils, we have decided to discontinue these two products.

Watercolor Pencils (item 101879) and Watercolor Wonder Crayons Brights Collection (item 119804), which have been on the Backorder Report for about a week, will no longer be available, effective immediately. If your order has not been shipped due to its status in backorder, we will not be able to fill it. We will soon begin processing refunds for these items. Keep in mind that it may take a few days to see the reimbursement in your account.

Now for the good news! We still have the remaining collections of the Watercolor Wonder Crayons available to order. The Subtles (item 119802), Neutrals (item 119805), and Regals (item 119803) Collections are only available while supplies last. Get ’em before they’re gone!

Thank you for reading my blog, for your continued support and loyalty, and for sharing this page with your crafty friends and family!

Have a great day, until tomorrow, happy stamping!!

*Note I just edited this post as I found out today I cannot set up the hostess code before 12:01 am on April 6th to be eligible for the free shipping. So I will be posting a correct hostess code early April 6th for you weekend shoppers.
