Morning fellow crafters

Sadly, we've come total time of year again when Stampin' Up! sadly have to retire some of their fabulous products to make space for new and exciting products arriving in NEW our Annual Catalogue 2013/14, available from 1st July. 

Today, I am joining a few fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrators to show you some of our Stampin' Up! items that are retiring and therefore only available until 30th June, but hurry these are only available while stocks last.  So, why not grab a cup of tea, pen and paper, as I'm sure you will find something you simply 'must have' before they disappear at the end of June.   

You may have joined me from Donna @ so a warm welcome to you, wherever you have found me.  As Demonstrators, we all love sharing their creations with you.  

It is my birthday tomorrow and we are visiting family so I packed a few products to finish my projects last night and early this morning, as time has run way with me once again. If anyone ever discovers the 36hr day, please remember to share with me :-)

My first project today features the Newsprint Designer Series Paper #121878, River Rock cardstock #111852 and using the Just Believe stamp set #116948 (W) #120453 (C), all of which are retiring products.  This stamp set was one of my favourites and I'm sad to see it retire. Of course none of my floral projects would be complete without some butterflies which I'm pleased to say are still in new cattie :-)

My next project I uses my Brayer but features retiring colours Bashful Blue, Baja Breeze and Lucky Limeade, again with the Just Believe stamp set.  I had two classes last weekend in Bury St Edmunds and Norwich.  My ladies loved playing and learning different techniques but my favourite was making check gingham with the Brayer.  Sounds intriguing, then pop back next week and I hope to have some loaded here. 

Here I have used my favourite Designer Series Paper Twitterpated #125406 to make some cute 10cm square cards.  Riding Hood Red featured in these papers, is another colour that will be retiring. 

..... and a quick close up of the butterfly layers, this time stamped onto recycled brown packing papers which come in our Stampin' Up! deliveries.  Aren't the just sweet ?

Now for some covered notebooks using the same Twitterpated Designer Series Paper #125406.  The brads with adhesive jelly dots are from the Spring/Summer catalogue so they will also be coming to an end at the end of the month. 

As Independent Demonstrators, we are lucky to have seen the gorgeous new catalogue online and I already have a looooonnng wish list of my favourite new products. 

If you have a long wish list too, either from the retirement list or anticipation of how much you will LOVE all the new products, I would love you to join my growing team, so pease just getting touch and we an cat further.
