I've been having a real trip down memory lane today!
Do you know there are only two weeks left of our 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue and our 2015 Occasions Catalogue.?
When the retiring product list came out a couple of weeks back, I had the normal few moments of desperate sadness as I realised some of my very favourite and most used stamp sets were not carrying over into the new catalogue.
This morning I have been scrolling back through my blog from the last 18 months or so to see what I did with some of my favourite sets, and I thought I would just re-share some of those creative moments with you.
If you click on the name of the stamp set at the start of each line, it will take you to the blog post and pictures of what I made with them.
I adore both these stamp sets and they will be going in my forever stash!
I was never going to get this stamp set - but when the Blendabilities came out, it was such a cute set for colouring - I already miss the Blendabilities like someone chopped my arm off, and since there are still some young ones in our family, including one who adores foxes, I might have to hold onto this stamp set in my secret stash too!
This has been one of my most used stamp sets - I can't believe it is retiring! Since the gorgeous Zoo Babies stamp set and the Chalk Talk Framelits are carrying over, I might have to see if there is another stamp I can use to make a new version of this most loved train project.
I also used Chalk Talk Stamp Set and framelits for my display poster that I created for the 2013 Girls Only Festival.
Sometimes an item goes out of the catalogue and we demonstrators just shake our heads and say "WHY?????" These hearts framelits have been so well loved and used.
When I first saw this stamp set, I thought - cute, but it didn't grab me. The VERY first card I saw made with it, had me putting it on my order form! So glad I did - these cards have been my most ever clicked on cards on Pinterest!!
Well, that all just seems a bit sad, but the very exciting news for you, is that if you don't own any of these stamp sets and are now seeing them in a new light, YOU CAN STILL GET THEM.
Yes, that's right, the retiring product list runs through until and including June 2nd, (while products last) so if you do want to purchase one of these stamp sets or the Hearts Framelits, visit my online shop and grab yourself a bargain, while they are still there to be grabbed.
If you'd like help placing an order, please contact me, or better still, come to my Retiring Party in Croydon North this coming Saturday afternoon between 1pm-4pm. RSVP online here.
If you'd like to see more Retiring Favourites, pop back on Thursday morning when I am participating in a blog hop with some of my fellow demonstrators to take a trip down memory lane with some of our favourite stamp sets.
See you then,
