As we bid a fond farewell to this year's retiring stamp sets, we also say goodbye to our retiring accessories. Products are usually discontinued based on current trends or lower product sales to make room for new and exciting products. Please keep in mind that
Discontinued accessories are available until June 30, or while supplies last.
Quantities are limited to stock on hand, so once they're gone, they're gone! To help you communicate with customers, we will update the list daily by 6:00 PM (MT) to reflect item availability. Items can move quickly, so have your customers give you a second choice in case their first choice is out of stock.
Remind your customers that this is their last chance to stock up on 2006-2007 In Color ink, card stock, and ribbon. Suggest purchasing extra ink refills to extend the life of their In Color pads after these colors are no longer available.
Stamps and Stampin' Around wheels will be available through June 30.
In addition to discontinued items, many years we also have a number of items that are being offered in a different quantity or assortment in the upcoming catalog. This year, we're offering the following items differently in the Fall-Winter Collection 2007:
Select individual color packs of 12" x 12" card stock
Confetti White & Kraft Tiny Takeout boxes & tags
Select embossing powder colors
Select 1/4" grosgrain ribbon colors
Corner Rounder punch
These items appear on the retired list and will be retired in their current quantity or assortment, but you will be able to purchase these or similar items in a different configuration, quantity, or assortment in the Fall-Winter Collection 2007.

Missi was one of the demonstrators for the evening and this was her project. I have dubbed Missi the Mini Scrapbook Master. She always has some new great idea to share.
We used the paper and die cut stickers from our current hostess Simply Scrappin’ kit to make this. With Missi’s great instructions it was a quick and easy project. I’m sure I will be posting more of Missi’s creations.

I recently attended a shoebox swap, which is where you design a card, make up kits with all the items needed to make the card and then each attendee moves around the table making each others cards. This was by design for my card. I used puffy paint to make the icing appear 3-D.
Thank you for looking!
