Hey there, how are my favorite crafty people out there? I know this is a really exciting time right now, with the big retirement sale going on of a lot of Stampin’ Up!’s stamping supplies. If you haven’t a clue about what I am talking about you may want to visit the link at the top of this blog to my store to see all the tools, stamp sets and embellishments that are reduced in price and while supplies last. Every year, Stampin’ Up! publishes a new catalog and before that they put quite a few items on “the retirement” list and will no longer be producing these items. Therefore they go on sale and some are half price. Typically, papers, inks and embellishments go quickly. There are a lot of tools going out too. Although I am sad seeing 40% of my stamp sets and 60% of my tools on the list, I am looking forward to ordering out of the new catalog (obviously to replenish stock so I can feature and spotlight current items for you to craft with. I got a chance to look at the new catalog this week and there is some really nice things coming out. Very exciting!!! As a demonstrator I do get the opportunity to take part in a pre-order and I already have a list. Such fun. Anyway, onto today’s cute project. It’s a really cute box with enough size in it to hold a number of goodies. Please note here that the scalloped oval punch, the oval punch and the birthday bouquet patterned paper and enamel dots are on the retired list. If you want them, get them now and I think they will be quick to sell out. Also, the big craft scissors I use in the video are retiring too :(.
