May Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the May Pals Blog Hop and our annual retirement party! It's time to say goodbye to stamps and accessories that will not be available in the new 2013-14 Stampin' Up! catalog. Although it's always sad to see wonderful products retire, it is exciting to think about all of the new products that will soon be available. So enjoy the farewell tour for our favorite retiring products - and remember you have until June 3rd to order from the retiring product lists.

You should have just left stop number 18 on the Pals Hop
  • Debbie Mageed at Scrappin' and Stampin'

  •  If so, you are in the right spot. If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

    I am going to miss my favorite DSP collection, Comfort Cafe.
    The two stamp sets I used are also retiring, Kindness Matters and Curly Cute.

    I used Curly Cute on the inside of the card.

    I have used the Curly Cute sentiments on almost All of my Thank You and Birthday Cards.  (If you want some good advice, I suggest purchasing a Curly Cute set while they are still available.  You won't be sorry; it is a very versatile sentiment set to own)

        The next stop is

    1. Diane, I love how you used this stamp set, and this DSP set is my favorite from this past year's collections, too. Thanks for the inspiration and cute layout!

      1. Beautiful card, and I so agree with you that this dsp will sorely missed.

    2. This is beautiful - inside and out!

    3. Very pretty, Diane. I love Comfort Cafe, too!

    4. A very lovely card, Diane! And it was my favorite from this catalog also. The patterns reminded so much of the cotton prints that I used to sew so very many years ago! Good job!

    6. Beautiful butterflies! Great job. TFS

    7. Oh Debbie, I am so sad to see this DSP go! Beautiful!
