Jems Retired Products Blog Hop

Welcome to our Jems Blog Hop. Glad you could join us in our showcase of our favourite retiring products.

I love this time in the Stampin' Up! calendar. Old products are retiring & we'll soon have brand new 'toys' to play with! There are always a few sets that I'm sad to see go but I'm so excited at the new products that will be available for you to order from 1st June 2016.

One of the sets I'm sorry to see go is the Feel Goods set. So many lovely sentiments and I've used them time & time again. I'll probably hold on to this set for a while though and it's still available to order in Wood Mount and it's reduced to £19.55 . . . . . . bargain!

I've used this set so many times for making frames for friends.

For this one I've teamed it up with retired products and also products that are carrying over to the new catalogue. 

Sadly the Deco Labels Dies are retiring but there are so many fab products coming to replace them.

My daughter starts her GCSE's next week so I've made this card with her in mind.

I've also used the retired Everyday Chic Washi Tape which is still available while stocks last. 

The sentiment has been embossed using Versamark & Silver Embossing Powder.

For my second card I've used the retired Hexagon Punch which unfortunately has sold out. Hope you managed to get yours! 

This card is fab for using up scraps of Designer Series Paper and I've used the papers from the Cherry On Top stack. I've also used the Deco Labels Collection Dies which are retiring but are still in stock.

Well I hope you've enjoyed my offering for the Blog Hop. If you would like to purchase any of the products I've used please click on the link to my online store in my sidebar.

Next on the list is the very talented Sarah-Jane. Please click on the Next Button below to take you to her blog.

Thanks for visiting today and Happy Crafting.
