Welcome to the May Pals Blog Hop. This is the first hop on our new day - the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Before we celebrate the release of the new Stampin' Up! catalog next month, we want to take time to say goodbye to our favorite retiring products. This month we are featuring projects that showcase stamps or accessories that are retiring along with the 2013-14 Idea Book & Catalog on June 4th.
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Susan Itel @ Simple Stampin' #7 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog.
I used the Fabulous Florets stamp set and Express Yourself which I love (and which you can see from my previous blog posts!). I had been eyeing the Square Lattice embossing folder for years but never got around to buying it. When I saw it was on the retirement list, I grabbed it! Love the look of this folder. I am very sad to hear that the Core'dinations papers are going away as well. I love how you can sand them as I did here. The stretchy Strawberry Slush ribbon is my favorite too. I am a huge fan of Gumball Green. I was sure to order some paper, ink and ribbon! As sad as I am to see all of these wonderful products go away, I am thrilled to be getting some of the new products in! The catalog is fabulous!! I can't wait to share it with you. You may want to check out the retirement list to see what you can't live without, like I did!
The next stop is 9. Beth Beard at My Little Craft Blog on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next month.
