I'm continuing my trip down memory lane today, taking a look back at some of my favorite handmade cards and projects featuring Stampin' Up! products that will retire June 2, 2015. (If you missed part one, you can see it here.)
Rather than list all the stamp sets and other papercrafting supplies at the end in one huge supply list, each project will link to the original post for complete details and a supply list.
Learn more about the retiring Stampin' Up! products for 2015 here, including what's on sale (up to 50% off!) while supplies last.
This gorgeous blossom was created using the retiring Mosiac Madness stamp set and coordinating Mosiac Punch in an unexpected way. See more of these colorful Mosiac Madness flower blossoms.
This thank you card is full of newly retiring products. The repeating sentiment image is from the retiring Chalk Talk stamp set. The stamp set is also available in a bundle that includes the coordinating Chalk Talk Framelits Dies. TIP: The Framelits are not retiring, so I fully expect a new coordinating stamp set in the new Annual Catalog. I love having versatile framelits with lots of matching stamps!
Also retiring is the Large Scallop Edgelit Die and the coordinating Delicate Designs Embossing Folders duo. The Basic Black Chevron Ribbon is retiring, as is Strawberry Slush cardstock along with the other 2013-2015 In Colors.
I've used the adorable Hello Love Hostess Stamp Set on tons of projects including this cute birthday card. As happens every year, all exclusive hostess sets will be retiring.
Try as I might, photographing this simple thank you card proved difficult. The design is pleasing, but it's the contrasting patterns and stunning color combo that reach out and grab you when you see this this card in person. The retiring Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack features Basic Gray and Lost Lagoon in addition to the Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White shown here.
The Paper Stack (small pad) is retiring along with the Four You stamp set, Large Scallop Edgelit Die, and the gorgeous Blackberry Bliss Stitched Satin Ribbon (Waaahhhh!).
The retiring Truly Grateful stamp set debuted in a seasonal catalog and then later popped up in the Annual Catalog for a return engagement. This set is appropriate for Thanksgiving as well as creating thank you cards. You might not recognize a sneaky way I used a third image from this set. Get the details here.
The large medallion image from the Starburst Sayings stamp set is perfect for so many occasions and this happy day card is just one of them. All things "starburst" are retiring, including the stamp set, the coordinating Starburst Framelits Dies, and the Starburst Bundle (stamps + dies at 15% off).
More Starburst Framelits fun on this all-occasion card featuring the retiring Hi There stamp set and one of my favorite retiring accessories - the Essentials Wooden Elements.

Thanks for reminiscing with me as we look at just a small sampling of retiring Stampin' Up! products. These were a few of my favorite cards and projects from the past. It always makes me sad when a beloved stamp, tool, or accessory doesn't carry over to the new catalog.
But! But! But!
Tomorrow, Stampin' Up! will be unveiling the new Annual Catalog to all demonstrators worldwide. I can hardly wait to see all the new stamps, and papers, and tools. Oh ... and the new In Colors! So much suspense.
Customers will get to view the new catalog online June 2 when it goes live. If you're a Stampingville Preferred Customer your copy of the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog will be shipped directly to you on/around May 12. It should be arriving in your mailbox the last week of May!
Reminder: Butterflies Thinlits Special Offer ends tomorrow (April 30). Don't miss your chance to score a deal on these popular dies.
