Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop – Saying Goodbye

Time for another hop around the creative side with a Create with Connie and Mary blog hop!

Today, our theme is about saying goodbye to retiring Stampin’ Up products.

Of course, my list is long, but I kept it super short and sweet for this post.

I went with a Christmas favorite that’s retiring –

libbystamps, stampin up, Snow Place, Snow Friends Framelits, Fruit Stand DSP, Falling Petals EF, CCMC Blog Hop

This cute little fun set, Snow Place stamp set and the coordinating,Snow Friends Framelits are both retiring.

This embossing folder, Falling Petals, the Designer Series Paper, Fruit Stand (yes, a non-Christmas paper for a traditional Christmas card!!!), and the thick bakers twine are all leaving us as well. I’ll miss the stamp set and framelit bundle the most.

We have so much talent on our team. Check them out to see what their favorites are and what you can not live with out before its gone for good.

A wonderful sketch I must say!

I did have to think about this one. And in no time, I came up with this sweet number –

libbystamps, stampin up, Snow Place, Snow Friends Framelits, Candy Cane Lane, WWC97, Christmas, snowman

Clean. Cute. Simple. Wintry. Easy.

I added the sparkly black glimmer paper that has long since been retired, but I had a scrap to make a hat from! Waste not, want not, right? Same thing with the red foil scarf too!

For the tie, I once again found a piece of retired soft whisper white baker’s twine. This was great stuff!!! It’s really inbetwwen the two twines Stampin’ Up now carries.

I must say, I love how this turned out! What do you think? I’d love to read your comments!

And, check out what the other design team members created at Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and play along with us!!!
