What's New? Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation...

Stampin ' Up! made some big announcements yesterday and I thought I should start to reveal all... well as much as I can at this time...

Stampin’ Trimmer Discontinuation
The Stampin’ Trimmer will be retired come 3 June 2019, including all accessories—replacement cutting blades, scoring blades, and cutting mats. There have been challenges in quality and the supply chain and so Stampin' Up! are taking the opportunity to research and explore a replacement option for this product, which will not be the same as the current Stampin’ Trimmer. 
There will be a gap in time between when the current Stampin’ Trimmer retires and when a new product becomes available, but we do not currently have an estimated time frame. Once Stampin' Up! feel confident in the new offering, they will communicate more details with us about the new product.
However I am really excited to see what the future will bring... as the Stampin Trimmer has been amazing apart from the intermittent quality issues... So to have a new product that improves on the current offering will be amazing!! 
But... in the meantime... the replacement cutting blades will also retire with the trimmer and will not be featured in the annual catalogue, so six months of inventory has been ordered to help us during this transition away from the current trimmer. Though this news could ( and probably will) cause faster inventory depletion. 
When the retiring list goes live at 8pm UK time on 15 April, the order limit for the blades will increase from three to six (and the limit will remain at six until they’re no longer available). And from now until September, we will receive intermittent shipments from the supplier. 
But... ... as of now in Europe - and throughout these months - we anticipate times when the blades will not be orderable (and not offered as a backorder). During these downtimes, you should visit the product page and enter your e-mail address to receive notification when the blades are available again... and order as quickly as possible when you are notified that new stocks are in... 
Here are the affected products ... click on the product name or photo to go straight to the product in the Online Store...
