Blog Hop #6

Thanks for joining us on another team blog hop. If you’ve found me by hopping along from Kerry Bunting’s blog, Welcome and thanks for checking out my page.

This month we wanted to share the retiring products from the current Annual Catalogue. I chose to use the retiring In Colors of Fresh Fig, Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink & Berry Burst. I have really loved using these colours over the last two years and will miss them when they’re gone but I’m equally excited for the In colors that are coming next month to replace them.

The stamp set I’ve chosen is Florentine Filigree which is such an elegant stamp set and is so simple to use. I have simply stamped the images and let them stand on their own. I stamped the sentiment “Thank You” on both cards and just used my papersnips to create two different types of banners but you can also use the triple banner punch to create one of the banners.

Product List

Double Flap Picnic Basket

I was looking for a box to put some little goodies in as a gift and came across a great tutorial from Crafty Caroline in the UK.

I made the picnic basket & love it.  It is a little fiddly putting the lid on and putting the split pins on but I love how they turned out.  I’ve used up some lovely designer series paper and a good way to use up your retiring products.  The split pins are no longer available from Stampin’ Up! but I’m using up my stock of them.

Here is the video tutorial for the box.  I hope you will enjoy making this box as much as I did.  Don’t forget that the retirement list is out and selling fast so go online to my shop and grab yourself a bargain as some items are up to 50% off

3 more weeks of the 2016/2017 Annual Catalogue

The retirement list is out and products are selling fast. I have created a top ten list of products.

These are some products that I love and will miss once they’re gone from the catalogues.  I’ve enjoyed creating with these products.
Buy them before they’re gone for good.

social_retired2016_demo_Apr1816_SPUK_3

Today and tomorrow are your very last days to get some great products from the Retirement List.

There are still many great products to get your hands on but only till tomorrow. social_retired2016_demo_Apr1816_SPUK_5

The best way to get what you want and not miss out is to order directly online at my shop. That way the products will get shipped directly to you and you know that you haven’t missed out.

Every order placed either online or with me will receive a special thank you from me.  Last month I made up little pouches with some chocolates inside.

Get out the wishlist that you’ve been sitting on and place that order before they’re gone for good.
