Time to Say Goodbye – Retiring Stamps and Accessories 2014

2014 Retiring Lists

It’s that time of year.  Time to say, “Goodbye”, to all of our old “stuff”.  Stampin’ Up! is no exception.  The Retiring Items are ready for a new home.  You’ll even get Free Shipping from today (April 21) through April 25, 2014.

Click on the following links to download the PDF’s but don’t wait too long.  The most popular items go very quickly and this year there are no back orders.  Once they’re gone, they’re gone!



Retired Stamps and Accessories Lists Are Here!

Get Your Favorites!

It’s here! The retired list is split into two separate files to make it a little easier to see if your wishlist items are retiring.

It’s time for you to sit down and mark up your Stampin’ Up catalog.  Use the lists by page number to go through  and note the retiring items.

Some of the accessories – the inks, papers, ribbons, designer papers, buttons, brads, etc. may end up on the clearance rack.  We never know but if there is something you want, better get them QUICKLY rather than waiting.

It’s a little sad, but then I think about the new catalog and it’s all ok .:)


Color Refresh

It’s spring here in the Midwest, and it sure looks dull outside right now – lots of brown dead grass, mud, and the occasional resisting-melting dirty snowpile. Ugh. The robins are back – I’ve seen a few flying about, but not enough to REALLY feel like spring. And there’s still a chill in the air. That’s why Stampin’ Up’s recent announcement of a Color Refresh makes me happy – color brightens my day.

Some of my favorite colors from the past are back!  Love my Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, and Island Indigo. Can you tell I’m a Pisces? All blues and greens 🙂

If you sign up for My Paper Pumpkin and choose me as your demonstrator, let me know by emailing me so I can send you a special handmade card.

I can’t help but be reminded of Archie Campbell’s version of Cinderella from HeeHaw. Does that date me? Anyway, check it out on YouTube. I guarantee you’ll never think of Cinderella the same way.

Hello World!

Wow, I can’t believe I actually have a blog. Pinch me! I plan on sharing what I love to do – papercrafting. Papercrafting in my world doesn’t mean just using paper. I like to create handmade cards, home decor, and gifts. Using pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I hope you will stop in and see what I’m up to. Thanks for joining me on this journey!
