Last Chance Products are Out Now!

Every year about this time, Stampin' Up! lets us know what is retiring from their offering and therefore what is staying through the next Stampin' Up! year. This year they are putting those retiring products on the Last Chance List.

Every year the first things to sell out are usually the retiring In Color reinkers, and the die cutting dies that are going away. This year the colours that are retiring are Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove, Call Me Clover and Lovely Lipstick.

If you need the reinkers for the colours I just listed, better grab them fast!

One thing that may puzzle some people is the fact that so many Blends are listed as retiring. Don't panic! The Blends will still be there (except for retiring In Colors). They are not going to be offered as single pens though. They will be sold in combination packs of dark and light pens, and they will get new order numbers too.

Some bundles will no longer be offered at a discount either, but the stamp sets and dies will be offered separately. If you have your eye on a bundle, why not get it at a discount before June 2nd (or before it sells out?)

Do contact me if you have any questions or need help ordering. I am always happy to enable you! Lol!

Anzac Day Wreath

In Australia it is Anzac Day on April 25th, a day to commemorate those who lost their lives during Word War II on the battlefields. Usually people get up at 4am to attend an open service honouring the Anzacs. This year that won't be possible, but people are making and hanging wreaths of poppies on their fences and front doors, and decorating candles with poppies and agreeing to go to the end of their driveways at 5.55am to stand in silence and respect for 10minutes, to honour those lost lives and the freedoms we were given by them.

I decided to make a paper poppy wreath for our front door using the Poppy Moments dies. Being paper, it cannot be hung out in the weather, but it makes a statement.

There are free instructions for how to make a wreath like this on

I'll be stamping poppies on vellum to wrap around a candle jar too so we can hold lighted candles in our driveways.

What are you making for Anzac Day?
