Last Chance for Great Stamps

While we are all getting excited for the launch of Stampin’ Up!’s 2016 Annual Catalog, it’s important to remember that some of your wish list items will be soon going away. We first focused on papers and tools since those were added to the retired list on a “while supplies last” basis. Stampin’ Up! said they would continue producing stamps up to May 22 – that’s today! – before those items move to a “while supplies last” basis through the end of the month. Either way, these sets will not be available after June 1.

As we say goodbye to these sets, I thought it would be fun to reminisce by sharing some of my projects that feature these retiring sets. You can click on any of these photos to see my original posts about these projects.

Please enjoy this little stroll down memory lane!
