Retirement day mixed emotions

What a day it’s been today with the excitement of the Retirement List release. This is the day when we find out what stamps and accessories are retiring from the 2015-16 Annual Catalogue and current Occasions catalogue.  It’s a day I always greet with mixed emotions.

At first, I’m saddened when I see some of my favourites make the list (ok a lot of my favourites, lets face it everything is my favourite!). But then it is quickly followed by a sense of excitement for the upcoming new products. I am always thinking… “if this is going, what is coming?!”

One of hot items that always sells out fast on Retirement day are the InColour products. This year we are saying goodbye to Blackberry Bliss (my favourite by far), Lost Lagoon (so going to miss this one too), Tangelo Twist, Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow.

Today also marks a special shopping day – it’s the only day you can shop from the Retiring List (up to 50% off), the Weekly Deals (which finishes up tonight) and the Clearance Rack (up to 80% off). Lots of Bargains to be had one this one day – Today! Products are only available while stocks last though. So if you are thinking of shopping, shop here pretty soon.


Today, I’m sharing the project I did with my Stamp Club this month. It featured the colours Lost Lagoon and Tangelo Twist from the retiring InColour collection.


Themed for Mother’s Day, this card design would also make a great layout for any occasion though. The lovely dots in the leafy stem, is just lovely. I gushed over it in my last post too. It’s from the Grateful Bunch stamp set and coordinates with the Blossom Bunch Punch.

Take note of the Tangelo Twist (orange) frame around the raised stamped decorative element. I’ll be coming back to you soon, with the challenge I set for my stamp club team members.

The retiring list items will be available while stocks last or until May 31st.

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
