My first blog hop!!






 
Ooh exciting!! This is my first time joining in a blog hop! Me and my fellow Stampin' Up! family known as the Jem's are showcasing our Stampin' Up! makes on the first Saturday of each month, this first blog hop is all about retiring product. We have a brand new catalogue coming out on June 1st and as such we sadly have to say goodbye to some of our current products to make room for shiny new ones.


The retiring products will be available until June 1st or until they sell out, whichever comes first, so it’s well worth a look if you see something you like on any of our pages.


So here’s my makes, I chose to go with the love you sew stamp set which is a hostess gift in the current Spring/Sumer catalogue. I’m amazed it’s being retired as its perfect for us crafty types. I just love the little puns and the imagery to match, but then again I was always a sucker for anything cheesy!!


I made a few little simple note cards below, they are A7 size when folded and I hope you agree very cute! I actually sent a copy of the “thanks a hole punch” card to a company who had recently shown fab customer service and received an email back saying how lovely it was to receive a thank you note these days and how it brightened up his day when he opened it! So this along with our #imbringingbirthdaysback movement (I’ll fill you in about that on a blog soon!) has encouraged me to put in the effort to make cards for my friends, family and beyond this year and for the foreseeable future!












I’ve also included some images of small notebooks I covered for my team swaps at our quarterly training earlier in the year. I’ve included these as they show off nearly all the different stamps in the set!










Thank you for visiting! Below are links to the next and previous blogs in our hop, please try and visit us all!
