Retiring List + Me = 😭

The Retiring List + The Three Retiring Stamp Sets That I'm Saddest About

I am always so sad when the retiring list comes out! Some of my favorites are always on the chopping block. 😢 I've picked out my top three favorite retiring stamp sets that I think you should buy before they are sold out!  You won't regret it!
Shop the Retiring List.  Stamp Sets are guaranteed through May 24...that does NOT mean that the matching dies or punches are though!  They are strictly while supplies last, so if there is something that you want, then you need to get it now!  Oh, and anything that is bundled (i.e., a Stamp Set and Punch sold as a set for 10% off) in the current catalogs will NOT be bundled in the upcoming catalog, so if you want it, get it now while it's on sale!

And with that said, here are the Stamp Sets that are bringing tears to my eyes.

Number 3 - Family & Friends (Item 148698)

These are like paper doll stamps!  You select the
stamps and then build the people in your life!

How fun would it be to make these cute pictures for gifts
for friends and family for Christmas?  And wouldn't this set
make cute"photo" Christmas cards?

There are also cat and dog stamps.  You can make a card with
them or you can add them to your family photo!

This stamps set is super versatile and very fun! I'm sure it's one that you have to have in your stamp set arsenal!

Number 2 - Amazing Life (Item 148750)

I seriously can NOT believe that this one is retiring!  It is so, well, amazing.  It has the best phrases, a cute cake, cute flowers, and some nifty flourishes.  But retiring is is, so you'd better grab it before it's gone forever. 😟
Don't you love the mixed fonts on these
sentiments? And these flourishes? So pretty.

I stamped this one with the Spectrum Pad
(which is also retiring!).

This St. Patrick's Day card was a quick and easy
card made with this set!  Who knew!

Number 1 - Needlepoint Nook Bundle - Needle and Thread Stamp Set and Needlepoint Elements Framelits (Item 150626)

This is the one that I am the saddest about.  I absolutely love this stamp set!  The stamps stamp the most beautiful stitched flowers!  They are distinktive photopolymer stamps and they are just plain perfect!  You must have these!  The bundle is 10% off the price of buying the separately, so you should do that!
The flowers and the leaf set are all Distinktive Stamps.

The shape at the bottom right punches tiny holes that then fits
inside the Pretty Label Punch to be punched out!

 I made some over-the-top items for my friend and spline, Kay Cogbill's event before OnStage in SanAntonio.  This yarn holder was one of my favorites!  OK, really, they're all my favorites.  I would never be able to pick just one!  Stay tuned because next week I'm going to feature everything on the blog!

I colored the pearls with the Highland Heather, Balmy Blue,
and Poppy Parade Blends.  They "look" like French Knots.

Here's a close up of the corner embellishment.  I wish
there were a Miss Creative contest, that's a pageant that I might
could have won! LOL

I love this cat punched out of DSP so much!  I used the dies
to cut out the Night of Navy leaf shapes and the cute banner
shape that has "friend" stamped on it.

This pillow box and card make a perfect Get Well Gift.  Look at all of the
cute embellishments stamped and cut using the dies! And the Daisy
Punch goes with the DSP, too!
