Product Retirement and Changes

In a recent update CTMH Corporate sent to Independent Consultants, we learned of some coming product changes.

The 5" x 7" White Daisy Envelopes (Z1477) are no longer being supplied by the vendor. I was going to say that 5" x 7" White Daisy envelopes will be retired soon, when the current inventory is exhausted, but that inventory has already flown out the door so this product is no longer available. There are alternatives to purchasing pre-made envelopes; you can make your own.

Cricut® Cartridges with Envelope Cuts
Cricut® Artfully Sent Collection
Cricut® Artiste Collection

You can create your own 5" by 7" envelopes by using the Cricut® Artfully Sent Collection (Z3168). The 5" x 7" envelopes can be found on pages 44 to 49 of the handbook (the PDF opens in a new window). There are other envelopes on the Artfully Sent cartridge that you may resize in Cricut® Craft Room to cut with your Expression or Expression 2 or Cricut® Design Space to cut with your Explore. There are also envelopes in the Cricut® Artiste Collection (Z3170), they can be found throughout the handbook, but you may need to use CCR or CDS to get the correct sizing.

The current selection of My Legacy™ albums will be retiring with the current Annual Inspirations at the end of July and are now available on a while-supplies-last basis. This also means that the black post-bound album option will not be made available again.

The next set of My Legacy™ albums will be released in the next Annual Inspirations idea book (available August 1, 2016). I do not know much about the new albums other than CTMH Corporate has listened carefully to Consultant feedback and will be making some changes to them. Corporate tells us: "Without giving away too much, we want to assure you that we are committed to maintaining the high quality standard you and your customers expect, with sturdy covers, durable binding, and excellent hardware that you can trust to hold your cherished layouts and family photos."

If you want to order from the existing selection of albums, perhaps you would like some to coordinate with albums you have, please do not delay. When the news about the album changes becomes more widely known the albums may quickly go as the 5" x 7" envelopes did.
