Farewell Accessories and Occasions Mini

Well the accessories retirement list was posted yesterday.  I am a little surprised at some of the punches and dies that are leaving the family.   Makes me picture the butterfly punch sitting on the front porch in a rocking chair talking to Mr. Barely Banana at the SU retirement home.  The nicest part about the retirement list this year is it is available in our online stores.  Just click on my Shop 24/7 button and they are listed and pictured for easy ordering.  Including those items discounted :).  Before the occasions mini goes away I wanted to share a card made with the set Just My Type.  This was my dad's birthday card and I altered it slightly for my uncle (dad's twin).  The inspiration from the card is from Mary Fish.  I just love Mary's style and her cute pixie haircut.
So take a moment to look over the retired items and get ready for all the super new stuff coming our way in a little over a month.  Waiting the last month for the catalog is like the last month of a pregnancy---it just drags.

Retired Stamp Set List

I'm trying not to freak out but I just saw the list and SEVERAL of my all time favorite...go to...use all the time sets are being retired..AHHHHH.
For anyone new to Stampin' Up! once a year they announce which sets will go out of their inventory and no longer be for sale.  Now that doesn't mean too much to the average stamper and even as a demonstrator I can still use them but I can't tell someone who loves a card with the Medallion on it "oh you can buy that".  Yes that's right...the Medalllion is retiring.  So is Fox & Friends and Loads of Love (I've had that one forever).  So here is the list and the low down.  Order the retiring sets now until May 31st if it is a set that's always been on your "someday" list.  Once they sell out they are gone for good.
I am so excited to see what is new and I'm sure I will have new favorites very soon.
Retired Stamp Sets List 2012
The next round of retiring items the accessories list (papers, in color items, buttons and brads and all the cute extras) will be released on April 25th.  This list has items that always go quickly and sometimes at a reduced price.
So grab a cup of tea and sit down with your hi-lighter or red pen to mark your current catalogs.
Remember it is super easy to place an order on-line with me by clicking on the shop 24/7 tab on the right side of the blog.  The items are shipped directly to you in a little over a week.

Meanwhile here is my Easter card for this year along with a piece of stained glass my dad made for Easter.
