The Stampin’ Trimmer will be retiring as of 3 June 2019, including all accessories -replacement cutting blades, scoring blades and cutting mats. Stampin’ Up! have ordered an estimated supply for 6 months. Once the retirement list goes live on 15th April, the order limit for the blades will be set to 6 (and will remain at 6 until they’re no longer available).
A replacement option is being worked on however there isn’t a timeframe available as yet and it will not be the same as the Stampin’ Trimmer. We do know that when it is released it will be a great product as Stampin’ Up! will be offering it once they are confident with it.
From now until September, should there be times the blades be not orderable, it will not be offered as a back order but you will have the option to enter an email address to receive notification when the blades are available again.
Note that the Stampin’ Trimmer and accessories will not be in the upcoming Annual Catalogue.
So, if you have a Stampin’ Trimmer you would probably like to order some of the replacement items to keep you going – I know I will be doing so. Once the new cutting tool is launched, you can use your trimmer to cut glitter cardstock and adhesive backed cardstock so you don’t dull other blades.
Stampin’ Trimmer Accessories
Beginning with the new Annual Catalogue there will be new style dies and embossing folders. One of the significant factors in this decision by Stampin’ Up! is that instead of working with a supplier who works with a manufacturer, they have moved to a direct-to-manufacturer relationship giving greater control and potential over the manufacturing process.
The new style dies and embossing folders will work with any die cutting machine. In some cases it may require a shim due to the difference between machines.
The current die cutting machine will retire and will not be available in the Annual catalogue. This is your chance to get extra Cutting plates you may require.

New style dies
On old-style dies, when you place an open die (dies that coordinate with stamps) over a stamped image, a small border of cardstock is visible around the stamped image. With new-style dies, the die hugs the edge of the stamped image. Instead of aligning the die to the space around the stamped image, you will align it to the edges of the stamped image. When the image is cut, there will still be a cardstock border around the image.
NEW STYLE ALIGNMENT
