A Beautiful Balloons Thank You Tag

I love to make a cute, little tag – and I love when I have reasons to send them. 🙂 When I mailed out the Super-Awesome Fun Time Card Kits with the Bright & Beautiful Memories & More Cards this past week, I included a festive, little tag that features a variety of products I love – some are retiring and some are continuing into Stampin’ Up!’s 2024 Annual Catalog. Here’s a look at the tag:

Let’s take a closer look at each of the products showcased in this simple project and the future status of each. What fun!

Bright & Beautiful Designer Series Paper (#161449) – carrying over

I was so excited to see glimpses of the Bright & Beautiful 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper in the 2024 Annual Catalog. It’s a brilliant pack of paper with versatile, beautiful designs – so easy to adapt to other projects. The pack features returning and new colors in the color refresh that was introduced last year. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the Bright & Beautiful 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper:

The Beautiful Balloons Bundle is the first bundle showcased in the 2023 Annual Catalog – what festive fun! Both the stamp set and dies are retiring at the end of April or when supplies run out. The dies are marked 10% off, but you can get 10% off both the stamp set AND the dies by buying the bundle before it goes away. Here’s a look at the Beautiful Balloons Bundle:

I used small pieces of the Gold Celebrations Specialty Paper, window sheets with gold designs, in the kits I mailed out. I had enough left over to make the little tags I am sharing with you today. Here’s a look at these designs:

If gold isn’t your jam (but you love silver), then this pack of window sheets might be just what you are looking for.

Festive Pearls (#159963) – retiring soon – 30% OFF

I’ve loved the Festive Pearls since they were first introduced – it’s easy to pop a pack or two in orders, so I accumulated a little stash. The original colors were Real Red, Soft Succulent, Silver and Gold. I used gold pearls on these tags with a handful of Soft Succulent pearls (that seem to blend well with the aqua tones in the paper). Here’s a look at the discounted Festive Pearls:

It can happen – as promised, several products in the Last Chance Sale have completely sold out and are no loner available. The sentiment on my balloons is stamped with a “thank you” from Charming Sentiments, which is now discontinued.

When I make multiples of a project, I like to line them all up and grab an “infinity shot” of the projects all lined up together. Here’s a look at all of these tags on my craft desk:
