Last Chance Blog Hop

Today I'm taking part in a blog hop showcasing some Stampin' Up! products that are just about to retire at the end of this month.

If you have been following the hop from the beginning of the circle (from Alison's blog),
then a warm welcome to you! You will have just seen some fabulous projects from Ally.
If you have just popped in, don't worry, you can follow the links from here and enjoy the full blog hop circle!

This card was made for my friend's daughter's birthday and uses some of the gorgeous Nursery Suite Specialty Designer Series Papers (117165 £9.95) that retire at the end of this month.


The next three cards were made using one of my favourite Christmas sets Sparkly & Bright (115346 £16.95) and the Jolly Holiday designer series papers (unfortunately the papers are now out of stock - sorry!) If you are planning on buying any products that are retiring then I do recommend you do so as soon as possible as stocks may be running low on more items.



The Merry Christmas sentiment on these two cards is from the Occasional Greetings set (110520)which is also retiring. This has also been discounted by 40% so is available at the bargain price of £18.57 while stocks last.

This last card has been designed to attach to the front of an envelope to enclose money or a Christmas gift card.
This next card was made for a friend who was in hospital (excuse the fuzzy picture taken from my phone). The buttherfly stamp is from the Strength & Hope set (Wood: 118100 £15.95, Clear Mount 123660 £12.95) Stampin' Up! will donate £1 to the Breast Cancer Research foundation for each set purchased before the end of September.



By the time you read this I will be on my way to Edinburgh to meet up with my fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators for some business training. As always when us demonstrators get together we make lots of cards to swap. I was very organised for once and made these cards a few weeks ago.



However when my pre-order goodies arrived on Tuesday (one of the perks of being a demo is that you get to order some of the new stuff from the new catalogue early!!!) I decided I couldn't resist making up some swaps using one of the new hostess sets (did I mention that as a demo you also get to pre-order two hostess sets as well! )

I finally finished these this morning and I'll be showing you the card in more detail next week.

Look out for more posts soon when I'll be letting you see some of the new products.
Hint: I had to dig out my sewing machine for the first time in ages!

Finally I have just set up a Facebook page and if you'd like to "like" it I'd be very grateful. Just click on the link that is (hopefully) on the sidebar on the left over there <<<<<<<<<<

I hope you have enjoyed my projects! Now it's time to continue the hop by going to visit Evy's blog here. Have a great weekend everyone!!
