I Was Robbed!

Someone came in and cleared out all my stamps on Friday!  Ann was getting her eyes dilated and when she came home, this was all that was left!

Good thing we keep our Occasions Seasonal Catalog stamps in a rolling cart!

Stolen Stamps 2016
This cupboard holds more than 250 stamp sets when it’s full – and it was pretty full!

(We forgot to take a “before” picture.)

They must’ve been in a hurry because they only left behind stamp sets that will be returning in the new catalog.

I think Ann bought the cupboard in Orchard Supply Hardware, Target or Home Depot several years ago, but they should sell something similar.

Having a closed door on them helps keep the sunlight out which can age your rubber and photopolymer stamps.

You can move almost all the shelves so that you can customize it.

  • We put hostess & limited edition sets on the top.
  • Miscellaneous is next for the stuff that doesn’t fit anywhere else.
  • Next shelf is for word stamps so that they’re easy to read.
  • Below that is backgrounds and borders.
  • Then Nature – like butterflies, trees and flowers.
  • At the bottom in that black bucket are the returning Holiday sets from last year’s Holiday Seasonal Catalog.

And where did our ribbon go to?

Empty Ribbon Drawer

This drawer was full of ribbons!  In fact, we have to put the Seasonal Catalog ribbons and trims on the top of that rolling cart where we keep the Seasonal Catalog stamp sets.

Cleaned out after a retiring list!

I wonder if….

YES!  I found over a storage bucket of stamps that were taken out to make way for the new ones!  (I don’t have the heart to count them.)

And here’s the small bucket of washi tape and accessories.  (I think Ann is keeping the twirly tower.)

Retired Accessories Box

I wiped away Ann’s tears when she saw all these punches, but we must make way for new ones!  (I can see where she smuggled one of them out of here.  Perhaps she’ll hide it under the bed.

AND…. the ribbon!  That small bucket is about 8″ deep.  And look at the White Satin Ribbon!

Retired Ribbon Box

I think she got lots of that because it was even nicer than the ribbon she loved that Stampin’ Up! carried years ago before I was born.  LUXURIOUS!

I didn’t take a picture of the huge stamp box.  There were some Framelits in there as well.

I think you get the picture.

You can see picture lists and a printable list of all the Stampin’ Up! 2016 retiring stamps and accessories here.  The picture lists show what’s available.  The printable list shows what was ORIGINALLY listed.

When you’re shopping, you might want to use our latest host code 43XYZZQX when you shop in our online store so that we can include a small gift with the reusable handmade card we send our online shoppers.

We’re already getting calls and emails from people asking about things that aren’t available.  As much as we’d like to, we can’t go searching for old items….even in our own stash…..because of the multiple hours it would take to find them!

We’d love to help, but unless it’s right where we can put our hands on it and we’re not going to keep it, Ann has to concentrate on my health and well being first and foremost so that I can continue to design fabulous cards and 3-D paper crafting projects for you.

  1. You must be kidding. Aren’t you ?

    • I thought I barked that it was when they took the retired stuff out of our stamp room. Maybe Ann didn’t make that perfectly clear. I’ll bark with her.
