A Muse Studio is Having a Birthday

This is a big month at A Muse Studio -- as we celebrate 3 years AND the retiring stamps & accessories to make room for the new catalog, coming this summer!

First up, look at the great gifts YOU get for our birthday, two free stamp sets -- one with a $50 order and the other for hostesses! And each set has matching die(s) that you can purchase (as part of your $50 order, perhaps?)

It's time to say goodbye to some of the products in our current catalog. We know... it's hard to say goodbye. To make it easier, and add to the fun, this year we are having a Progressive Sale for the items on our Retiring Products List.
Here's the scoop:
The progressive sale begins May 1st and we will offer increasing discounts approximately every fifteen days. Here's the schedule of savings:
May 1 to May 15 ..................... save 25%
May 16 to May 31..................... save 35%
June 1 to June 15.................... save 45%
June 16 to June 30................... save 55%
Here is the PDF with the sets that we'll be saying farewell to, along with the progressive discount. Not that the items with marked * are low in quantity -- and once they are gone you missed your chance, so don't wait too long!
Please note: The following items are also retiring from our 2013-2014 Catalog but are not on the Retiring Products list because they are presently sold out:
TPCRST1 - piercer/stylus
TADRE01 - adhesive remover
TAD0038 - as die set - vintage labels 2
TAD0032 - as die - fry box
TAD0036 - as die set - rosettes
RABT204 - baker's twine - cherry
ESWH001 - holiday assorted washi (3 rolls)
SNSM042 - quick & cute valentines
SJEF002 - just my type
SISS013 - rock star
SISJ023 - let's be adventurers
You will notice that we are retiring most of our A Muse Studio felt colors. You will see three of these colors (Vanilla, Cherry and Fern) appear in future seasonal catalogs - like the 2014 Holiday Catalog. All other colors are retiring for good.
You will also notice that a large number of A Muse Studio dies are retiring, including our line of exclusive dies by Spellbinders. Unfortunately, we’re no longer able to offer these dies at a price that’s competitive. But don’t despair! We know that many of you love die cutting and there are tons of creative new die designs coming in the new catalog!
Retiring stamp sets can still be selected for Hostess Rewards at the appropriate discounted price. 
With all that good news, I have some bad news to share, as well. The release of the 2014 Catalog and Inspiration Guide will be delayed to July 1st 2014. We have been advised that a stamp manufacturing issue beyond our control has placed us in this predicament. BUT I have gotten a preview of some of the new sets, and color additions and I think the new catalog will be worth the wait!
As always, if you have any questions or need more information on any of this -- don't hesitate to contact me.

Happy Stamping!
