My Top 5 Retiring Products

This makes me sad.   My Top 5 Retiring Products 1. Angled Tag Topper PunchWhy is this retiring? I have no clue. It is just so very useful! It makes creating tags and bookmarks a snap. I love it and use it all the time! No way I'm getting rid of mine! 2. Sticky StripAgain, why are they getting rid of this? It is the BEST tape for box making. I am not a fan of glue in box making, it takes ages to dry and is messy (or maybe I'm just impatient and untidy?) but this tape does the job. I know, we have Fast Fuse but I just haven't fallen in love with fast fuse yet. :-( 3. Naturals White A4 Card StockThis, and it's twin, Naturals Ivory, are my go-to card bases. They are thicker than Whisper White (which is the BEST card stock for stamping on, but a bit too thin for a card base, IMO) so I find they are just the perfect weight for card bases and tags. 4. Champagne Glimmer PaperI love this vintagey-gold glimmer paper! It isn't as brassy as gold, and it is the …

Top Five Retiring Big Shot Dies

So many Big Shot dies leaving!  I really don't know if I can part with these.  I might have to hoard them and use them on my own projects.... Top 5 Retiring Big Shot Dies 1. Top Note Bigz DieSo sad to see this classic go! It was originally designed as the perfect size for a little cello bag topper - it fit the medium and small cello bags perfectly, depending on whether you used the Top Note in portrait or landscape orientation. Also used as a layer on cards, journalling spot on scrapbook pages, gift tags. 2. Party Pennants Bigz L DieLOVE this die! I've made birthday pennants, Christmas Pennants (I love decorating my home for Christmas), used them on cards, etc. 3. Flower Frenzy Bigz L DieWho doesn't love flowers? So many beautiful shapes in this die. And because it's a Bigz die, you can cut felt, fabric, cork board, etc. Used by me for wreaths, fabric headbands, etc. 4. Beautiful Wings Embosslits DieThis is so pretty! I've used it on heaps of cards and …

Top Five retiring Stamp Sets

It's impossible to name my favourite stamp sets, but if I had to narrow it down to top five.... My Top Five Retiring Stamp Sets 1. Chalk Talk Clear-Mount Stamp SetLove this set with the matching framelits! I've made so many tags with it, which I've bundled together as gifts, or sold at markets. 2. Birthday Surprise Clear-Mount Stamp SetThis big, bold, cheerful stamp set makes it easy to fill up white space. Great on a scrapbook page too. 3. Daydream Medallions Clear Stamp SetThis one is so versatile. I've used it for wedding cards, scrapbook pages, Christmas cards, birthdays.... 4. Embellished Events Clear Stamp SetI love a stamp set that has something for every occasion, particularly for beginners. I also love that this set was designed to work with our buttons and adhesive gems. 5. Mosaic Madness Clear Stamp SetI love the endless designs you can make with this. I also love the co-ordinating Embossing folder, and punch.

April, already?

Wasn't it February a week ago?  My kids are all home how for school holidays and it is "Easter Bunny Eve" as my baby says.  Phew! Lots to show and tell you - first, there is a fabulous limited time Bonus Bundle promotion being offered by Stampin' Up! from 1st April (whoops, I'm late) to 17th April. Here are the details:   Stampin' Up! does the co-ordination thing so well.  It's reason #15 that I love them so much!   I know you'll want to buy all of them, so pop over to my Online Store over in the sidebar.   Hurry because they are only available for a couple of weeks! The next thing I wanted to let you know about was the Backorder situation - it's the worst I've ever seen in the almost 7 years I've been a Demonstrator. Here's what's currently on Backorder: WHY is this happening?  Well, as with most natural disasters, it's caused by a number of factors: 1.  Higher Sales of particular products than SU! expected (YAY!  but d'o…
