Welcome to the Blogging Friends Blog Hop
Who are the ‘Blogging Friends’? Until last year, we were a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who had never met before. Well, actually, we still haven’t met yet (in person). . . But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of papercrafting we have created a fun new blog hop!
Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created for you!
In case you’ve never ‘done’ a blog hop before, it’s really easy. At the bottom of this post, you’ll see a "continue" image and when you click on it, you’ll be taken directly to the next participant in the hop. Keep clicking on that image at the bottom of each blog post, and you’ll hop through all of the participating blogs, back to where you started – and you’ll see all of the amazing projects created for your inspiration! You won't want to miss a stop, I promise! Of course, if you want to "hop" around at your own leisure, the individual links are also listed.
This month we are focusing on the Retirement List! That's right, each year Stampin' UP! retires some fabulous stamps, accessories and embellishments. Click here to view the list in it's entirety and if you'd like to place an order online, kindly use Hostess Code 2EFFJGGH and have your order shipped directly to you. There are some great items on that list you will want in your craft room before they are gone forever (well, until you pay insane prices for them on eBay anyway. . . )
I know, I know. . . It's May and I'm showcasing an entire Christmas theme on today's hop, but. I think people (myself included) all too often forget about all the fabulous Christmas stamp sets that retire each year. So, we're going to take a look at 2 different gift sets I've made:
