Stampin' Up! Year End Closeout Sale, Stamping to Share, Stamp Sets, Bundles, Paper, Ribbons and Accessories

There’s another sale at Stampin’ Up! and this one goes from December 1 – January 3. There are all sorts of goodies on this list and some of them are available only while supplies last as they are being retired from the Holiday 2016 Catalog. Since some of these items may be here today and gone tomorrow, I strongly recommend staying updated by going to my Online Store. I will create links below to take you to the specific categories that you are interested in. Have fun checking out the DEALS and there are some good ones!!

Click on Last Chance List from the Holiday Catalog if you would like to make a print out of everything retiring. Remember, ALL of the Bundles will be on this list because Bundles are only sold together at a discount the FIRST time that they appear in a Stampin’ Up! Catalog.

Click on Retiring Stamp Sets to see what stamp sets are being discontinued. A couple of these stamp sets can be purchased as a bundle with the coordinating framelits or thinlits, so you might want to check out the bundle list below to see if the stamp set that you want to order can be ordered that way first.
