Last Chance List (retiring list)

We know we are very close to the new catalogue when the Last Chance List of retiring products is released.

You can view the Last Chance List here. The list is 8 pages long but it doesn't mean that all the items listed are going for good. For example, the punches in the new catalogue will be the new flat format, the makers, water colour crayons, stampin spots and paper packs will be the new colour families. You can get some good savings as some of the items are up to 50% off. Items are on sale from today until 31 August 2010 or WHILE STOCKS LAST! Just email me if you would like to place an order.

To celebrate the new catalogue I will be having a catalogue launch with my downline Fiona on Saturday 4 September. More details to follow closer to the date. You will be able to see the new catalogue and do some make and takes using the new products. There will also be a sale of our craft products that are no longer current.

I apologise for my lack of postings. I can't believe how long it has been. To make up for it I have a few creations to share with you. The first is some items I made for a Secret Sister swap for an online group that I am a part of. You get to be a secret sister for 3 months. The following is what I sent for the second month. I try to do each month to a theme and this month I used the Asian Artistry hostess stamp set. This is the first card I sent using Real Red, Sahara Sand, Whisper White and a pattern from the Sweet Slumber Specialty papers. I coloured the image using Read Red and Mellow Moss markers and finished off the card with some Real Red grosgrain ribbon.
The second picture shows the second card and gifts. I stuck to the same colour scheme and stamp set just using a different image. The small box contains a regular wheel and the larger item is a slider - just pull the ribbon at the top and out pops a large chocolate bar. I hope my Secret Sister likes them. I have to confess that I made a big booboo. When you send express post you have to sign the declaration on the front of the envelope and I forgot I was supposed to be a secret and signed my name. Unfortunately my signature is easy to read so I am probably not so secret!
The next card was done for a lady at work who asked me to make a card for a friend of hers who is a mad Adelaide Crows supporter. It took me a while to think of what I could make and then I thought a guernsey would be good. Her favourite players are No: 9 & 23 so I put one on the front and the other on the back. I thought it turned out pretty well.
That's it for now. I am in the middle of pulling out all my retiring stamp sets to make way for the new!
Happy stamping
