Bidding a Fond Farewell…

Every year I look at Stampin’ Up!’s retiring list with trepidation. I’m afraid to see which of my favorite stamp sets and accessories show up on the list. As I dried the tears from my eyes over some of the items on the list (O.K., maybe I didn’t shed a tear), my mind turned to the fond memories that I have had with some of my favorites that appeared on the list this year. Would you like to walk down memory lane with me? If so, take a look at the cards and projects below. If interested in the specific details and tutorials of any of the them, you can click on the image to see the original post.

  1. This trip down Memory Lane is very sad but very beautiful! I am a hobby demonstrator & I really enjoy your blog, I hate to see all those stamps go but look forward to seeing what you create with the new ones we get. Thank you for sharing.


  2. Gosh Kelly, so many beautiful and fun stamps and dies and punches are leaving, that is really sad. I’m lucky to own most of this retiring products but, I feel really bad for the new SU demonstrators and new customers who will miss out enjoying this fabulous products, that are as beautiful as they are versatile.
    All of this cards you showed today are the perfect example of how great this products really are, thank you for sharing this beauties, I hope there is still time for customers to grab them before they are gone forever.


  3. Hi Maria. The retiring list is always hard to swallow. Yet it allows Stampin’ Up! To make room for new products. I too own many if the retiring products. It’s hard to part with some if them.


  4. Thank you Kelly for this beautiful group of card images! I’m sure we will find many new sets and accessories to love in the new catty. And I’m sure you will make those new sets shine!
