IF YOU LOVE THEM, GET THEM NOW!  Many of the coordinating 2016-2018 In Color products will retire as of June first (when the 2018-2019 annual catalog begins) and will be on the Retiring Products List in April (date to be determined).  In the past, retiring In Color products have sold out very quickly (and forever) once they hit the retiring product list (April).   

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:  Stampin’ Up! has the option to keep or bring back any of these colors and products if they do an update of the color collections.  However, purchasing them now, while they are in stock, is the only SURE THING!
