It’s time to say Goodbye to our Retiring Product

As most of you are probably aware, it’s almost time for the new annual catalogue release from Stampin’ Up! I’m very excited and can’t wait to share it with all of you. Before that happens, Stampin’ Up! have released the list of retiring products from the current annual catalogue. Just click the image below.

If you’re interested in anything, please get in quick as there are already a lot of items sold out!

We have our annual Convention on the Gold Coast next week and I’ve been very busy preparing my swaps. Stay tuned to see what I made and catch up on all the latest Stampin’ Up! goss and fun and frivolity 😉

Thanks for stopping by.

I just love Stampin’ Up! and their wonderful products! I loved soooo many of the new products I couldn’t show just one, or two, or even three… 😉


How cute is this stamp set? I love colouring with the blendabilities so this one was right up my alley 🙂 I had so much fun with this card.

Blendabilities: Skin Tone Assortment, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana and Crumb Cake
Card Stock: Daffodil Delight and Whisper White
Punches: Word Window
Other: Stampin’ Sponges and Dimensionals


I obviously felt like sponging the sky for these cards 😉 This is the new Moon Lake stamp set and I thought a really simple picture card for the guys – they can be so hard to make a card for.

Stamp Set: Moon Lake and Something to Say

Card Stock: Soft Sky, Old Olive and Whisper White
Word Window, Modern Label, Scallop Oval and Envelope Punch Board for corners

Here’s another stamp from the new Moon Lake stamp set. I just love this for simplicity. I also love the Circle Card Thinlits.

Stamp Set: Moon Lake and Butterfly Basics
Ink: Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy and Memento

For a really quick but effective Valentines Day Card I used the extremely versatile Sheltering Tree stamp set.

Stamp Set: Sheltering Tree
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, and Crumb Cake
Card Stock: Soft Sky, Real Red, Silver Glimmer Paper and Whisper White
Punches: Heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack

Of course it wouldn’t be a contribution from me if it didn’t have a 3D project. Even a small one 😉 It’s actually my name tag from the recent Party Time event in Brisbane. I’m a huge fan of the Lotus Blossom stamp set that’s FREE in the SAB catalogue.

Stamp Set: Lotus Blossom
Ink: Hello Honey, Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon and Tangelo Twist
Card Stock: Silver Glimmer Paper and Whisper White
