Welcome to the May Pals Blog Hop. This is the first hop on our new day - the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Before we celebrate the release of the new Stampin' Up! catalog next month, we want to take time to say goodbye to our favorite retiring products. This month we are showcasing projects that feature stamps or accessories that are retiring along with the 2013-14 Idea Book & Catalog on June 4.
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from the fabulously talented Patti MacLeith of Papercrafts by Patti, stop #2 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog.
I didn't even have to think about what retiring items I'm going to miss the most. The answer is simple: In Colors. I'll be sad to see them go. So I've created a couple of projects using the retiring In Colors.
I CASED the adorable box from the brilliantly creative Sam Donald at Pootles.
Midnight Muse card stock and Summer Starfruit ribbon on the basket highlight the retiring In Colors. Gumball Green and Summer Starfruit card stock on the card do the same for the card.
Another retiring item I'm going to miss is the Pure Gumption stamp set. It's perfect for this time of year, and will definitely be staying in my personal collection.
What retiring items are you going to miss? And which ones will find their way to YOUR personal collection?
The next stop is the wonderfully creative Jackier Diediker of Stampin' Jackie, stop #4 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next month.
