I'm always sad to say goodbye to some of my favorites from Stampin' Up!, even though I know that they are just making room for bigger & better things.
There are a few items on the Retiring Accessories list that I honestly don't know how I would live without. So, without further adieu, I present my 10 Must-Haves!
(You can click on any of the titles to learn more about each product.)
1. Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
I seriously love this folder! It is one of my favorites for creating vintage cards.
2. Whisper White Note Cards & Envelopes
Need to make a quick card? These are pre-scored and ready to go.
3. Tabletop Paper Cutter
Don't get me wrong......I love the new paper trimmer. BUT, this one has a blade that never needs to be sharpened or replaced. This has been a workhorse in my stamping room for years.
4. Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint
Put a few drops of this paint and some rubbing alcohol in a spritzer bottle and you'll create the perfect shimmer mist. It is absolutely beautiful! You can also sponge it directly onto a rubber stamp and stamp with it.
5. 12x12 Paper Holder and 8-1/2x11 Paper Holder
I'm an organizing freak! These paper holders scratch that itch quite nicely. I organize all my cardstock and designer series papers in these holders.
6. 1-1/4" Square Punch
Sure, I can cut my paper into 1-1/4" squares, but this makes it so easy. And it layers perfectly with the 1" square punch!
7. 12" x 12" Divided Page Protectors
I expect that these will sell out fast. They have been a real favorite with my scrapbooking customers. It would be a good item to stock up on if you do alot of scrapbooking!
8. Blossom Petals XL Punch
If you like punch art or flowers, you better add this to your order before it's gone. It's a frequently used punch in those adorable punch art characters.
9. Two Tags Stampin' UP! Bigz Die
Don't be fooled by this die! It's not just for tags. Do a quick Google search and you'll find tons of cute ideas for this die, including boxes, bookmarks, and treat containers.
10. Fancy Favor Stampin' UP! Bigz XL Die
Need to whip up a cute package for a small gift? Want to make quick party favors? Then, you definitely need this die. It has saved my butt many times over the last few years!
So, what do you think? Are there any of the products on the retiring list that you cannot craft without? What are you sad to see go?
I expect that many of these items will sell out, so don't wait to order. Everything is available in my online store while supplies last.
As a bonus, everyone that places an order with me will receive a FREE 2013-2014 Idea Book & Catalog when it launches.
I'll be back tomorrow with my Top 10 Retiring Stamps.
