Giant Year-End Closeout Begins December 8!

The end of the sales period for the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog is January 4, so it’s time to check your wishlist so you don’t miss out on any of your favorites!

A number of retiring items are discounted beginning December 8, ranging from 10% to 50%. There are fantastic deals on some Designer Series Paper, dies, ribbon, and embellishments! I would really appreciate it if you use my December host code when you place an order (unless it’s $150 or more!) — it will be available until January 3 (so I can close it out on January 4).

I’ve set up a spreadsheet and PDF for you that combine three lists that Stampin’ Up!® provided to demonstrators. Most products are retiring, however, there are several that are either carrying over to the next annual catalog in June 2021 or to the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog. The carryover products are listed as AC20-21 or JD2021 (there’s one that will be in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog, JJ2021). If any of those are on your wishlist, you’ll know they be back if you want to prioritize your wishlist with items that are retiring.

Select here for the spreadsheet.


I have several cards featuring retiring products to share with you this month. Today’s is one I created during a fun event I participated in with other demonstrators in early November. We had a number of challenges we could participate in throughout the day, and one of those was to simply create a card using the Peace & Joy Bundle, which was featured in make-and-takes we made as part of the event.

The Joy Dies (30% off beginning December 8) are so fun! I cut out the word with Red Velvet Paper (along with the strip behind the sentiment), then cut the layers from Whisper White and Pool Party cardstock.

I used the Trimming the Town Designer Series Paper (10% off beginning December 8) for both the happy background and to cut out “Christmas Cheer.” The “and” was stamped from the Peace & Joy stamp set (retiring) and cut by hand.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be featuring my favorite retiring products as well as giving you sneak peeks of items coming soon in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog and as part of Sale-a-Bration.

The supply lists in blog posts from this fall should automatically update with any discounted pricing beginning on December 8.
