Stampin’ Up! let Demonstrators know that the Butterfly Duet Punch and Cake Builder Punch in the Occasions Catalog are proving much more popular than expected! As a result, they have nearly depleted the stock of these punches. Our punches are manufactured in China and it is Chinese New Year when many factories close for a couple of weeks and it can take time to get shipments through the ports. It will be mid-March before additional shipments of these punches arrive.
The Butterfly Gala Punch is now unavailable until they receive future shipments.
The Cake Builder Punch (page 18 of Occasions Catalog, $18.00, item 148525) is currently not on back order but has very low supplies. Stampin’ Up! estimates that they have enough of this punch to last for about 2 weeks before inventory is depleted. Once inventory is depleted, the item number for this punch will be turned off. If you would like to order this punch before it becomes unavailable, please place an online order by clicking on the “Shop Now” button in the upper right corner of my blog. Presently you can order the Bundle or the punch alone.
The good news is that both of these wonderful punches will be available in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog which goes live in June!
Lastly, the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (item 149623) may be one of our most popular Sale-A-Bration items ever. It’s been so popular, in fact, that it has exceeded their product forecast and sold out. We have a shipment coming in to fulfill backorders, but because this item has been in such high demand, we have been forced to turn off the Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack and, therefore, is unavailable. Unfortunately, this initial shipment will help us fulfill only orders that have already been placed. Once backorders have been fulfilled, a second shipment will arrive at the beginning of March, which will allow us to turn on this item again; it will be available while supplies last only.
I am so sorry for this inconvenience. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
