Mix Detailed with Love, Graceful Glass Designer Vellum, and the Stamparatus, and you’ve got yourself a beautiful card. I actually changed the design up a bit for the video. My original is shown on the left and the one I did for the video is on the right. I have seen some gorgeous cards using the Stamparatus Hinge Step where the image faded from the top to the bottom. But those images were bigger and bolder, so there was only room for stamping three times. It works a lot better with just three.

I make custom boxes all the time. I didn’t even think to talk about them during my craft room tour. When my friend Barbara asked where I got the drawer organizers I realized I should make a video. These boxes are so quick, I’ll make them when I’m making lots of the same cards to hold elements until I’m ready for them. The same style boxes can be made to hold treats or whatever. You can make a top for the boxes using the exact same pattern, just allow an extra 1/16″ for the center section.

04.09.18_HEADER_RETIRING_LIST_US

The Retiring list has been posted. Some items sell out very quickly. In fact, I should have posted this in the morning. Don’t delay!

Click here for the Occasions Catalog Retiring List.

Click here for the Annual Catalog Retiring List.

You will see lots of Bundles on the list. Bundle prices are no longer carried over to the next catalog, so don’t get fooled. Just because a bundle is listed, it does not mean the products are retiring.

You will also see a lot of card stock, stamp pads, and ink refills on the list. Stampin’ Up! needed to update the molds they use to make the stamp cases. It was also time for a color refresh. After careful consideration they decided to make all the changes at once rather than make changes this year and then make more changes next year. I’m so glad they did! So there are some of my favorite colors retiring and I am so sad to see them go. But there are lot of even better colors that will be introduced and even some favorites from previous years returning. Yay!

I loved the way Stampin’ Up! showed the array of colors in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog on page 183. They didn’t do that this year, but here’s my version of it with the new colors.

Click here do download the full-size chart.

Again, when you see collections on the list, it may mean that just a few products in the collection are retiring.

But some of my favorite products really are retiring.

Everyone who has ordered from me in the past year will get the new 2018-2019 catalog, so now is a great time to order from me!
