Farewelling My Favourites - Blog Hop

Art with Heart Blog Hop Badge (250x250)Welcome to another Art With Heart team blog hop. You may have come here from Kayleen's blog, or you may be starting here - either way, welcome.

Did you know there are just 13 days left to purchase stamp sets and accessories from the 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and the 2015 Occasions Mini Catalogue?

Many products that are not carrying over into the new catalogue have been reduced in price and quite a few are sold out already. Today we are focussing on these retiring products because among them are some real favourites, and if you had them on your wishlist, we don't want you to get two weeks down the track and realise you have missed out on them as they are no longer available.

 

What products have I chosen to take a trip down Memory Lane with today?

Daydream Medallion Stamp Set

Yep, that's the Daydream Medallions Stamp Set from page 70 of the current catalogue, available in Wood Mount or Clear Mount.

And I've teamed it with a stack of left over pieces from one of our very popular kits this past year.

Everyday Occasions kit1 (499x499)
Yep, that's our Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit. Enough pieces to make 20 cards. AND a fantastic stamp set included in the set. Have you ever taken close notice?

If you haven't really noticed it, I have to confess to you right now, that I thought this whole kit was worth buying, solely for the stamp set - it's one of the best greeting sets we've had this past year.

And do you know about the Angel Policy?  If you are selling any handmade cards with stamped images, you must acknowledge the copyright of the company the image came from, so in the case of Stampin' Up!, if you are selling cards made with Stampin' Up! stamps, on the back of the card you must have the Stampin' Up! copyright.

What I totally love about the stamp set in this card kit is it provides a stamp with the copyright image on it! Love that! and it's a cute stamp too!

So, what have been making with the leftover pieces out of my Everyday Occasions kit, and how did I match them up with Daydream Medallions stamp set?

Well, I decided to finally scrapbook some more of my wedding photos! (Yes, miracles do happen!).

You can see that I chose two main colours from the kit - Island Indigo and Baked Brown Sugar and mixed and matched them as base sheets. Then I used some of the card bases out of the kit for the main layer on my layouts.

I picked out Pool Party, Baked Brown Sugar, Island Indigo, Whisper White and shiny silver Glimmer Paper die cuts from the kit to add as headings, journalling tabs and embellishments, and I stamped Daydream Medallions in Crumb Cake and Whisper White to break up the background.

Most of these layouts have hidden journalling in the form of a pull out tab behind the photo.

Did you notice on some of them I have used the stamp "Love" also from the kit, and on the layout with my brother, on the label at the top left, I inked up just the "L" so I had the same font, but hand wrote the rest of the word so I had Laugh.

If you are wondering about the titles - that's Epic Alphabet stamp set - a photopolymer stamp set that is carrying over (yippee!!!). That was a lot of fun to use!.

Alright! Have I inspired you to get in touch with your regular demonstrator and order the Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit or the Daydream Medallions stamp set before the 2nd of June? Go and talk to her right now because all the retiring items are only available while stocks last.
