Retired Stampin’ Up! Product for Sale

I have been working on going through dies and stamp sets to clean out retired items which I am ready to part with.  Who knew I could have so much around!  I am listing things on eBay and I thought I would share a link for you so you can see what I have for sale currently (I keep adding).  If you are interested in something, and live locally, there is no need for shipping, just contact me and we can take care of that.  My eBay user name is SozoCreative.

Ornate Style Handmade Card

I want to enjoy using the retiring stamp sets, but at the same time, I want to play with the new goodies, too!  Right now I have the Ornate Style stamp set to play with, but I have ordered a few other new items from the options Stampin’ Up! gave to demonstrators to preorder.  I can’t wait to get those and start playing!

In the meantime, here is a card using the Ornate Style stamp set.

Check out this super simple card.Continue reading

Our last scrapbook layout for this month uses the retiring Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  Although I really like the Magnolia Lane DSP, I am excited knowing there is a new DSP coming out that will still work well with the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.

The Woven Threads Designer Series Paper is retiring, and Stampin’ Up! is currently offering it at a 60% discount!  You can get the entire pack of DSP for just $4.60 while supplies last.

You saw me use the DSP a little while back in the Mother’s Day Gift class, and now I’m using some more of it in our May Scrap Club class.  This isn’t a pack of paper I would normally choose, but I received it for free and I’m finding myself making very good use of it.  The design is much more appealing in person than it appears in the catalog.
