Today I am participating in a Stampin’ Up! Australia blog hop along with the super talented ladies in the Art With Heart Team. We thought it would be fun to share some projects using our favourite retiring products from both the 2016-2017 Stampin’ Up! Annual and 2017 Occasions catalogues!
Select retiring products have discounts of up to 50% off but are only available until sold out. Be sure to place orders before the sun sets on these items on 31 May. You don’t want to miss out – ask me how!
My favourite retiring product by far from the last year is everything Mint Macaron! One of the product suites I have most loved pairing with Mint Macaron this year is the beautiful specialty Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper, the coordinating Affectionately Yours Washi Tape and the Love and Affection stamp set. I have created a card with a coordinating envelope and bookmark using these products. Lots of these items are reduced in the retiring products section in my online store, but only available until sold out so get in quick.
I just LOVE the copper foil highlights on this sheet of the paper. The Washi Tape is also beautiful and has a roll included with copper foiling as well.
As well as copper, I have used the retiring Lace Doileys from the Occasions catalogue on each of the projects. For the envelope, I used the doiley as a stencil with Mint Macaron ink sponged over the top.
Finally I made a coordinating bookmark to pop into the card (I think I will be sending these projects to my Mum as a happy hello - pretty sure she isn't reading my blog!).
As hard as it is to say goodbye to favourite retiring Stampin' Up! projects for 2017, the good news is we are less than 2 weeks away from demonstrators being able to pre-order even more lovely brand new products! Join the Art with Heart team from May 2nd and you can include new catalogue goodies in your awesome value starter kit. You can join just for yourself too. Any of the girls on todays's hop (including me) will be able to help you with information about joining our team. You can also request a brand new catalogue from them (available mid to late May) if you don't already have a regular demonstrator.
Now it's time to follow the blog hop onto our next participant, Andrea Roberts. The blog hop goes full circle and there is a list of participants at the end if you get lost along the way. Until next time, happy crafting!
