Welcome to the May edition of the Blogging Friends Blog Hop!
This month our focus is on retiring products. Our favorite retiring products. Grab some coffee and get ready to pin some great things! And, grab the tissues too…..and, check your fun spending money as well – some things you may really need after hopping around with us.
If you are new to Stampin’ Up, every year before the new catalog comes out, items retire. First and foremost, In-Colors, paper, ink, markers, ribbon…..we all know it. We all expect it. We even grumble and hoard because of it.
I wanted to maximize what I showed. So, I made this adorable Fry Container. Yes, the die and the Corrugated Paper its made from are retiring. And, the Spiral Flower, leaves (Bird Builder), Tag, Scallop Circle and ribbon – retiring, all of them. Whew.
Now, what’s in the Fry Container? Cards! Mini cards! Five of them –
Let’s take a closer look at each of the cards and what went into making them.
I made these all monochromatic. One per retiring color.
The Note Tag I used earlier on the box front.
The Washi Tape along each tag, it’s in a set of all five colors. Retiring, but, hey it’s on sale!
The stamps I used on each card tag front is from Something To Say. It’s a fabulous set because it has inside greetings too! Few sets have that. You gets lots for your money.
The background stamping on all the cards is from Perpetual Birthday Calendar – a very nice underrated set. It’s so versatile! Sadly, retiring as well.
I did staple the tags together with a piece of In-Color Thick Baker’s Twine. It was from last years Sale-a-Bration. I adhered these with Dimensionals to the 2 x 3 cards.
A WONDERFUL gift set showing some favorite, must have ,retiring Stampin’ Up products. Wouldn’t you agree? Scroll to the top and leave me a comment – it’s good ‘card-carma’!!
