hey hey hey, goodbye...

The retiring list is out for Stampin' Up! and there are some I'll be missing, that's for sure. The Great Swaps Girls blog has set out a challenge to use retiring sets and the 2008 In Colors for a final send-off. I chose to use Sweet Shapes and Little Pieces, these poor neglected sets on my shelf. I have used them recently, but before that it was a looong looong time. What are your favorite retiring sets? Do you have many in your collection retiring? I'm lucky this year, only 18, ha! Seriously, last year they got me good - I think I had around 40 and that made me realize I had WAY too many stamps at home. I've been better this year. I've used the splitcoast sketch challenge for my card. And hey, surprise, it's based off of a card from Kristina Werner, so I knew I'd like the sketch.

Enjoy your day and thanks again for stopping by!

Details -
stamps: sweet shapes, little pieces
paper: soft sky, blue bayou, purely pomegranate, groovy guava, whisper white cardstock
ink: soft sky, purely pomegranate, groovy guava, river rock
accessories: purely pomegranate double stitched grosgrain ribbon, stampin' dimensionals


  1. One of my fave's that is retiring is The Snowflake Spot. I really like this Christmas/Winter set!! Sad to see it go. Luckily I've traded a lot of my sets, so I only have 10 that are retiring this year!!

  2. So pretty!! Great job using those In Colors too....you get even more point for making it so gorgeous! :-)

  3. I am losing 7 sets. But I've only been a demo since March so it's a pretty big hit for me! My favorite set that I have is Blossoms Abound. I also love Touch of Nature but don't own it.
