International Stampin' Up! Blog Hop | Highlighting Retired Products




There are mixed emotions for this blog hop for me, both sadness and excitement as we say goodbye to some old favourites to make way for new inspiration for the launching items in the 2016 -2017 catalogue.

I've chosen to make my farewell highlight with the 2 sets that were in my first ever Stampin Up order. I fell in love with the flourish in Everything Eleanor and chose Petite Pairs as my first sentiment set. Here are my farewell creations:

 

One of the things I loved about Petite Pairs is that there were 2 parts to each of the sentiments, here is the 2nd on the inside of the card:


I'm also saying farewell to 2 of the 2014-2016 In colors - Tangelo Twist in my first card, and Lost Lagoon here in my second card:



Here is the 2nd part of the sentiment pair:

  1. Love your cards Sue. I will really miss Petite Pairs - I think it has been one of my most used stamp sets. I'm sure I'll be able to find something to replace it with in the new catalogue though!
