Good bye old favourites!

Hi Everyone,

Well it’s that time of year when Stampin’ Up demonstrators across Australia say Good Bye to some of their favourite products for the year and eagerly await the issue of a brand new Catalogue!


Sad, but exciting at the same time!

If you’d like to know what won’t be available in the new catalogue here in Australia, feel free to click on the artwork above which will take you to my Stampin’ Up Website and the Promotions page, which will have a link to the Retiring List of products.

If you’d like to own any of these products before they are Gone, Gone, Gone do not hesitate to contact me to place your order.

Items are not able to be ordered after the end of August 2012 and in alot of cases, they are only available until Sold Out. So please, if there is anything at all on the list - I would recommend you do not hesitate! 
Order now by sending me an email to

In tribute to one item that is on the retiring list, and now is as good a chance to use it as any – one of my favourite stamp sets is going – the Fifth Avenue Floral set! boo hoo.

Here are a couple of Thank You cards that I made with this set and my Stampin’ Write markers. (single markers are also being retired, they will be available in colour sets only)


This first card is coloured with Regal Rose and Soft Suede for the stamens.


The second card has been coloured to give the flowers a variegated look and the embossed Framed Tulips around the edges sponged over. Along with a matted central frame to bring your eye to the flowers. I’ve used the colours Perfect Plum and Baja Breeze here together with So Saffron for the stamens. I like the variegated look to these flowers and I added a little shimmer paint over the top for shine!

I'd like to share these cards at Inspire me Fridays, which is as always, Anything Goes. As well as enter the Top card at Crafty Catz Weekly challenge which this week is Pink.

It’s a shame this set has been retired, but …oh well…there’s bound to be something even more beautiful in the 2012 catalogue. Not long now to wait and see.

Have a great day/night wherever you are, I’ll be back again soon Smile
