Retiring Lists - Annual Inspirations 2017-2018 and Seasonal Expressions 2

As promised, here is a link to the retiring list (this PDF opens in a new tab) that was shared with Consultants today.

As a bonus, the retiring list also includes items retiring from Seasonal Expressions 2.

I know having this information makes it easier for me to decide what to add to my next order and I hope it helps you too.

The retiring list does not include which, if any, colors will retire in 2018. That is always kept a surprise until the North American Convention which takes place later this month.

I have a bit more information to share. While it is not exciting news, it is news I think we can all understand. We were warned that with the introduction of the new Annual Inspirations 2018-2019, there will be slightly higher prices on products across the board, including core products like stamp sets and paper packs. While we never want to pay more for products, this is the first time paper and stamp prices have increased since before I became a Consultant (March 2012). I don't know of many other supplies that have gone that long without a price increase. Most of the items that saw a price increase last year, to address increased costs for plastics, will not be increased again, though we are being told that a few minor adjustments will be made to select items.

Late afternoon tomorrow Close To My Heart is having a 24-Hour Flash Sale.

Some details about the sale:
  • Sale prices are only available on orders placed on my Consultant website.
  • The sale features a mix of current and retired products. There is a limited number of these items set aside for the sale. It is possible that CTMH will sell though several of the items in the sale. Once that happens, those items will no longer be available, so shop early!
  • Any current items that sell out during the sale will return to availability at normal price once the sale has ended.
  • All Flash Sale items count towards Stamp of the Month qualification.
  • Shipping and handling is based on the full retail value of the sale items.
  • There is no grace period for ordering sale items.
Be sure to set an alarm on your phone so you will be reminded about the sale when it starts.
