Favorite Retiring Stampin Up Items for 2017 Blog Hop

This time of year with Stampin’ Up! is always a little bitter sweet. I not only get the list of my favorite retiring Stampin Up items, but I also get a sneak peek at new items that will be available with the release of their new Annual Catalog on June 1st.

Fortunately, I do not have a ton of items retiring this year. Although those that will be retiring are some of my Stampin Up favorites.

Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’?  It is a small community of bloggers formed by Crystal Komara almost two years ago. We are all Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located across the U.S. and Canada who had never met before.  Well, actually, we still haven’t met yet (in person). . . But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of papercrafting we have created a fun  blog hop. Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created!

This month our theme is the retiring products of Stampin’ Up!

There are several items in the Occasions catalog I adore, which will not be available soon. One first bundle I want to share with you is called Special Reason. In fact, the coordinating thinlits dies, Stylish Stems, is no longer available. Only the Special Reason Stamp Set can now be purchased. I love the layering aspects of this set.

Aren’t dragonflies fun? I’m so glad I bought this bundle before it sold out. The Dragonfly Dreams Bundle is currently still available.

On a side note, please excuse my lack of details. I am actually plugging away at this with a cast on my right hand / wrist … I am right-handed. Suffice it to say, when you move a chair and you think to yourself someone is going to trip on that don’t be the one to regret not putting it elsewhere!

For my first cast ever, I figured I’d at least get one in my favorite color.

    Oh my, first of all happy healing, Jodi! I can’t believe you’re crafting IN A CAST! You rock! I would never have the capacity to do that! I love your sparkly dragonfly card! So pretty! Take care of yourself. Crystal

  3. Love your cards Jodi! I do hope you heal up soon! My one thought was, what color would I choose! LOL and hopefully I never have to. Take care and get better soon.

    OMG, girl! Kuddo’s for crafting with a cast. You did such a terrific job. I’m going to miss the Special Reason stamp set. Take care of yourself.
