Out with the Old – May Blog Hop


May Blog Hop Logo


Welcome to the May Pals Blog Hop. This is the first hop on our new day – the 2nd Wednesday of the month. Before we celebrate the release of the new Stampin’ Up! catalog next month, we want to take time to say goodbye to our favorite retiring products. This month we are showcasing projects that feature stamps or accessories that are retiring along with the 2013-14 Idea Book & Catalog on June 4th.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Maxine Conrad, #31 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.

May Blog Hop Card

May Blog Hop Close Up


Tried to use as many retiring products as I could.  Little late for a Mother’s Day card but my mom sure loved it!  🙂 Just change the sentiment and you have a new card!

The only non-retiring products are Crushed Curry Ink, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White cardstock, DSP Subtles, Scallop Circle Punch, Stitched Satin Ribbon, Pearl Basic Jewels, and Top Note Bigz

These are the retiring and some current Stampin’ Up! products I used to create this card:

The next stop is Angie Blake, #33 on the Pals Blog Hop!

Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next month.  I always appreciate your comments. Happy Stamping!

  1. Thanks, Patti. Sorry I’m late with my reply. Been a little busy here in San Diego, had my daughter and 3 grandchildren here for 3 days. They live on Camp Pendelton and the smoke was too much for them.

  2. Thanks, Maxine! Sorry I’m late with replies…San Diego north county was on fire but we are all good now. My daughter and three grandchildren were staying with us for 3 days. Whew…I’m exhausted!

  3. Where did you use the Top Note Bigz Die? (Maybe it’s just too early in the morning lol ). Thnx for sharing:)

  4. The flowers look great! They will be missed, but more so my favorite embossing folder Square Lattice.
