Pals May Blog Hop -- Saying Goodbye to Favorites

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May where we are preparing for the retirement of some Stampin' Up! products. Though it may be goodbye to some very loved supplies, it will make room for the much anticipated NEW catalog products. We hope you enjoy the Pals' creative projects.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Pamela Sadler at Stampin' Pink Rose, number 10 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the projects. 

My most beloved Stampin' Up! retiring products:

In Color: Coastal Cabana - It reminds me of the ocean.
Stamp Set: Chalk Talk - I can't get enough of this set!
Embossing Powder in Going Gray: -- It's a soft color.
Embellishment: Chevron Ribbon -- It's so versatile!
Special Kit: Artisan Embellishment -- This wasn't around long enough for me! The rose and small doily are from the kit that was in the Occasions Catalog.
Embossing Folder: Perfect Polka Dots and Delicate Designs -- The dots are kind of a neutral background and the DD create a lacy border.
Edgelit: Large Scallop -- It works alone or with DD folder.

All of these products together (along with the Strawberry Slush strip of card stock and Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine which are also retiring) created a very feminine and old-fashioned card to give to a "very special someone."

I hope you enjoyed looking. I love your comments and would love to know which products YOU are going to miss most?

The next stop is #12, Natalie Bradley at Soiree by Natalie Bradley on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you on next month's Pals Hop!
