Fortunately, Unfortunately RE: Retiring Stampin’ Up Products

Fortunately Unfortunately book jacket image for Retiring List post by Lynda Falconer Independent Stampin Up DemonstratorDid you ever read the book Fortunately, Unfortunately?  It’s a great children’s book we used to teach cause and effect.  I kept thinking of that book as I went through the retiring list with a fine tooth comb.  I have over 10 pages of post -it notes listing my favorite stamp sets, bundles, and everything elses that are retiring to make way for all the new goodies in the 2017-2018 new annual catalog (coming June 1st!)

So I’m looking at this time of year as a Fortunately, Unfortunately situation.  Fortunately some of my favorite products are still available and many of them are on sale!  Unfortunately, they won’t last long so there’s a sense of urgency to get the ones you really want before they sell out.  So I’ll be highlighting some of my favorites over the next month with some of the special projects I made with them.  I won’t get to all of them so be sure to visit the retiring products HERE to pay your respects and pick up a few favorites you just can’t live without!  Use Hostess Code 6TMSNKGM by May 3rd for Free Birthday Card Tutorials!  Be sure to provide contact info.

We just had a great Stamp Club MeetingMother's Day Card by Lynda Falconer, Stampin' Up Demonstrator at using Succulent Garden DSP and Stylish Stems Framelit Dies and made this Mother’s Day Card.  Fortunately, the Special Reason Bundle was the perfect choice to create a beautiful negative image flower and label with Succulent Garden DSP and Calypso Coral Cardstock.  The framelits are so versatile and also allow you to cut out the entire flower for a totally different look.  The stamped flower images are also beautiful and I used the small flower and leaf on the inside of the card to make it pop.

Unfortunately, the bundle, stamp set,  framelit dies and DSP are retiring so will only be available while supplies last until May 31st.

Fortunately there’s still time to get this bundle and many others (some at big discounts) in my online store.  Use Hostess Code 6TMSNKGM by May 3rd when you order to receive a free gift from me and 6 free birthday card tutorials.  If you order by April 28th it will also put you on my online customer list to receive the new 2017-2018 Annual Stampin’ Up Catalog for FREE!
