I hope you had a fabulous Easter! I made loads and loads of little “sour cream” containers for the Creme Eggs which I gave out at work and to family. My Dad joked that he hoped the creme in the egg wasn’t sour! Cheeky monkey. You wouldn’t believe the number of shops I had to visit before I found ones with Creme Eggs on Wednesday – Tesco were completely out, which wasn’t helpful as we’d specifically gone over there for them!! Ah well, I got some eventually.
So, I will share a photo of those with you once I have it uploaded. In more pressing news, however, you only have a short time to get your hands on the current In Colours for 2013-2015. As you may have noticed, a number of demonstrators have been warning you of this – the colours will definitely be retiring with the current Annual Catalogue, and they always sell out fast when the retiring list is released (which will be on the 21 April). So, if you will be wanting ink pads, refills, markers, cardstock, designer series paper, sequins, twine, etc. in the lovely pastel ice-cream colours that have graced our catalogues for the past 2 years, then make sure you stock up soon! I am sure that the stocks will be depleted before we know it.
In case you have forgotten, or are unsure, the retiring colours will be: Baked Brown Sugar, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, and Strawberry Slush. I love these colours, and am sad that they have to retire. I will certainly be keeping mine! I just got some of the gorgeous thick bakers twine in three of the colours so I need to make sure I get that into a few projects soon to share with you.
However, the deep, rich, more autumnal colours (as my brain sees them to be!) of the 2014-2016 In Colours will obviously still be around for another year, so why not make the most of those before they start their exit as well…?
There are also some deals in the Clearance rack which will go nicely with your retiring In Colour purchases – the 2013-15 In Colour “Boutique Details” which were available in the 2013-14 Annual Catalogue, and the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack from SaleABration 2014 which includes twine in Crisp Cantaloupe, Pool Party and Summer Starfruit, as well as adhesive cork elements.
So stock up on what you want before they are gone and not available. I’d hate for you to miss out on something you really want because you left it too long.
And don’t forget, the retiring product list goes live in just 2 weeks on the 21st of April, so be sure to check in then so as not to miss out on what you want. Some items will disappear almost immediately (depending on stock levels and popularity) and some items will be likely to be deeply discounted. You do not want to miss your chance here! I will be back before that, though, so keep popping by.
Have a great day!
