Sweet Shop Handbag

I'm always the last one to the party!  I finally opened the Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper this weekend and LOVE it...of course, because it will be leaving the mini catalog on April 30th.  Why did I wait soooo long to enjoy it?!

If you would like to make one of these gift card size handbags, the pattern can be found in the 12 Days of Christmas tutorial available on the tutorials page or the right hand sidebar of this blog.

Cardstock:  Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Old Olive, Sweet Shop Designer Series Paper
Stamp Set:  Create A Cupcake
Accessories:  Lattice Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Sweet , Jelly Bean Brads, Scallop Circle Punch, 1-1/4" & 1-3/8" Circle Punches, Cupcake Builder Punch, Whisper White Taffeta

The Discontinued Accessory List was announced today.  You can see all the items HERE
If your favorites are on the list, order quickly.  Accessories are while supply lasts only.  Boo-hoo! 
Online orders can be placed HERE.

The list is HUGE but don't panic.  We already knew the Decor Elements and Simply Adorned lines were going to go as Stampin' Up! is shifting their focus back to their core papercrafting products (yeah!!).  You will also notice that all the stamp pads are shown on he discontinued list.  The colors are NOT changing!  The pad design is changing to a new improved  Firm Foam Pad.  The Firm Foam pads offer better ink coverage and, in turn, better stamped images.   The colors are all the same!

You will also notice a lot of 12 x 12 cardstock and markers on the hit list.  They are being reconfigured.  Not all 12" x 12" cardstock colors will be available in individual packs anymore. Color assortment packs will be available, and some colors from each color collection will be available in individual packs. Stampin’ Write Markers in more popular colors will still be available individually.  Color assortments packs will still be available.
So.. if you have a particular color of cardstock that you can't live without in 12 x 12 size, you better order Up!  Same with individual markers...get them while they last.

Here's the deal tho folks.  Even though you are seeing a lot of your favorite stamp sets and products going away.  In each new catalog Stampin' Up! always supplies us with fresh stamp sets and up to date accessories that make our projects fabulous.  It's ok, change is good (even though I do not like it!) and 6 months from now we won't even remember what was on that list!  Just keep stampin' and enjoying!!
