Stampin’Up! Retiring List & Making Lemonade

September 7, 2011 at 8:29 pm 2 comments

I’m back- I’ve been away on holiday so although there were posts scheduled- I wasn’t actually around! So apologies for not visiting your blogs or leaving any messages.

This card is made using a whole plethora of Stampin’Up! goodies that are retiring.

Click on the picture and it will take you to the link. Some items are completely sold out already and several items are reduced. Once these are gone- they’re not coming back- so place an order with me while you can!

On this card- the retiring products are;

The Planter Box rub-ons

The Cosmo set of glitters. Schoolbook Serif Alphabet Stamp set.

All of the designer papers in the catalogue

The flower die-cuts- from the Celebrations quick accents set.        All the grosgrain ribbon in the 1.6cmwidth (boohoo- I love that ribbon!)

The Retirement Sale Night is at my house this Friday– its always a favourite event- don’t miss it. It’s on at 8pm. Email me to let me know you’re coming! I’ve got a simple Make and Take too!

This card was a case of making lemonade with lemons. I was really happy with the card and was just flicking glitter off but the brush I used was in fact dirty and smeared several stains onto the cards. I was gutted and thats why there’s an odd flower on the left- combined with a pearly stem that was twisted to hide the stains!! A crowded card but a usable one!! Don’t you think its great if you can turn rubbish days into productive ones? Take yesterday for example; we have a sick bug doing the rounds in our family at the moment. Lovely. Poor kids- 2 down..probably 3 to go! The first one sick was really poorly and insisted on laying on the bathroom floor. I didn’t really want to spend the entire morning sat in the bathroom but I couldn’t leave her there by herself so I set about clearing it out.

2 hours later with some helpful suggestions from my daughter about changing things round, i had an ordered and lovely shinily clean bathroom. The last thing needed was to turn my shower curtain upside down. Thanks to my Cropadile, I now have modesty-enhancing shower curtain and happier teenagers! Craft supplies get used all around my house for lots of different things!

I’m busy creating lots of samples for my Catalogue Launch Party on Saturday October 1st. I’m selling the new Catalogue for £4.50 sent out to you and £4 if you collect or come on the night. You can of course get one FREE! by hosting a workshop- and you are SO going to want to see the new Hostess system with some gorgeous exclusive goodies! There will be some demos of the new products and a lovely project ot make so come and bring a friend!

Better go- need to attend to the sick one!
