May 2019 - Stamp N Hop - Good Bye Annual & Occasions Catalogs
It is always so hard to say goodbye. This month the theme for today's Stamp 'N Hop is saying goodbey to the annual and occasions catalogs. I hope you enjoyed Vicki's project and left her comments before hopping to my blog.
I've chosen three of my favorite stamp sets that I am so very sad to see go, but on the good side, I do own them and they will be moving to my permanent stamp collection. Because I travel full time, I don't have room for all of my crafting supplies, so these sets will be staying with my mom who is an avid crafter like myself. She will take good care of them for me until I settle down in one location again.
I created two different cards. The first demonstrats a beginning stamper card. It uses three inks and two stamp sets, " Touches Of Texture" and "Southern Serenade".
The second project is a casual crafter card. It uses five ink colors and includes ink sponging and stamping to give it an aged, distressed look. The edges have been roughed up using snips, with additional ink added to the edges and the focal was trimmed down to 3 3/4" x 5" and was added to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" wood texture background. Braided linen trim added the finishing touch. The braid was loosened, with edges frayed for more interest.
I hope you have been inspired by my projects. Please leave a comment before hopping to the next blog. Click on the next icon below to hop along to Sharon's blog.

Each June Stampin' Up! releases a new annual catalog. The previous annual as well as the occasions catalog expire, so a selection of products are retired and the rest carryover into the new catalog which lasts for a full year.
Today's stamp sets as well as the wood texture background dsp are retiring on June 4th. These products are only available while supplies last. Click on the image below to see all of the retiring products From both the annual and occasions catalogs. Please feel free to reach out to me for assistance in placing your order. I do send free gifts when you order using my promo code which is also provided below.
Thanks for stopping by, please feel free to leave comments or questions, I am here to help!
