Hi friends,

I don’t mean to scare you but I don’t want you to miss out on the Stampin Up Annual Catalog Retirement List and the Occasions Retired List.  The products on this list will be available until May 31 or UNTIL SUPPLIES LAST!  Trust me, they will be gone way before May 31.  So if you have some of these items on your Wish List, I recommend you order them ASAP.  The list was published yesterday at 2 PM.  Stampin’ Up! does this every year to make room for the NEW items.  Have you heard?  We are getting 16 new ink colors.  I saw them Saturday at our annual convention and they are gorgeous!  This means you need to stock up on your favorite card stock, and especially ink pad refills for those retiring ink colors.

One of my favorite items on the annual catalog retiring list is the Mini Treat Bad thinlits.

The thinlits in this set comes with lots of useful thinlits, there’s a heart, star, bow, sentiment strips, banner and even words, (enjoy and for you.)  You can use the mini treat bag to hold a gift card, note cards, or any treat you wish.  I placed it next to an ink pad so you could get a better perspective on it’s size.


Remember that the 2016-2018 In-Colors are retiring this year as well as 16 other colors.   Order your ink pad refills, card stock and any ribbons in those colors.  These soon hard-to-find items will be sold on Ebay, Craigslist and on Facebook at a much higher price than the catalog prices.

Tip:  You can use any paper to make the mini treat bag – even a grocery bag! Easy!

Use the Burlap Background Stamp to add texture to your bag or your cards.

You can DIY designer series.  The circle die cut was stamped from an image from the Work of Art stamp set, which is also on the Retirement List.

These are some of the products I used to make my project.  If you need to purchase anything simply click on any product photo below and you will be directed to my online store website or you can click on my signature at the bottom of this blog post.  You can also contact me either by phone or e-mail.
