First of all, are we super excited for the new catalogue coming out? Before I had even seen the inside, it had me at the front cover! What a wonderful array of products and you are going to fall in love with everything inside as well.
In order to make way for new product, there has to be the retirement of product as well. Many of those products we love and we will miss. However, we will have awesome new products to play with.
Our oldest stamp set has retired after 18 years on the circuit. Lovely as a tree has served faithfully and is on the retirement list after being in every Annual catalogue since 2001.
I thought I’d look back at one of my older posts using this beautiful stamp set. This card uses the Reflection technique with acetate to create the reflection of the tree in the water.

The stamp sets that are carrying over will be transitioning from Clear or Wood-Mount to Cling. So some stamp sets, although they are currently on the retirement list, are NOT retiring. They are retiring in the form of Clear and Wood-Mount. The new supplies will be in Cling form.
Please note this does not apply to Photopolymer stamp sets as they will not be converting to Cling. Photopolymer stamps on the Last Chance list are retiring.
Following is the list of carryover stamp sets which are currently in Clear/Wood-Mount. These stamp sets will be on the Last Chance items list but are not retiring.
Transition to Cling
- Stamps in the 2018-2019 annual catalogue will continue to be available in clear-mount, wood-mount or photopolymer.
- Stamp sets offered in clear-mount and wood-mount in the 2018-2019 annual catalogue that are carrying over into the new catalogue will be offered until existing inventory has depleted or until 4th June, 2019 (whichever comes first).
- Red rubber stamp sets (clear-mount or wood-mount) in the annual catalogue that will be carrying over will transition to cling with the 2019-2020 annual catalogue.
- In 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue, clear mount and wood-mount stamps will no longer be available.
All retiring stamps are guaranteed to be available until 24th May. Other retiring products will be available until 3rd June or WHILE STOCKS LAST.
