  1. Gorgeous projects, Pip. I’d overlooked the Serene Silhouettes and now realise I should have bought them. Weird how that happens! A lovely show and tell of those retiring faves. Caro x

    • Thanks Caro and yes I KNOW exactly what you mean – I missed some stunning stamps this year & now I wish I’d bought them – oh well! More next year 🙂

  2. Going to miss the little candies… and the stamps I did not get.. love my punches.. cannot believe they are going.. also some of the older stamp sets… love Stampin Up.. always something new around the corner.

    • Don’t worry Jane not ALL of the punches are going, but I will miss the ovals & bird builder! New stuff is amazing though, so we’ll all be happy next month!

  3. I am very sad and possibly in denial about the demise of my beloved bird builder and cupcake punches which are useful for so many things. As the ovals – WHY?!!!!!

  4. I am in mourning for the loss of so many fab punches. Bird builder and cupcake have been used so many times in so many ways and my ovals are pretty much a go to for sentiment pieces as well as lots of punch art tricks. V sad……

  5. Oh Pip, Stop it … you’ve reminded me of so many retiring favourites here. That Scallop circle punch was I believe, my first ever Stampin’ Up! Punch 🙁 I’ll be sad to see that go x

  6. Going to really miss a lot of the products going, especially the bird punch ad that is the first SU product I ever saw on a trip back to NZ and seeing and playing with that got me hooked! Great projects.

    • Thanks Jackie – so glad you enjoyed our hop and it gave you inspiration – that’s all we can hope for!

  7. What a great selection of cards to showcase Pip. My Serene Silhouette has been well loved! Going to miss this set too.

  8. Ditto Louise, great selection! The bird punch may have to nest a little longer in my house. Surprisingly, am also sorry to see the birthday DSP go too.

    • Haha very surprising Lesley – but it just goes to show there’s always a chance to surprise ourselves with SU stuff! That bird is not flying out of my house for a while for sure!
