Retired Goodies

School starts 3 weeks from yesterday (20 days), but who’s counting? 

I have spent a lot of time over the past few days working with some of my favorite retired goodies, and I haven't taken pictures of most of it before giving it away.  There is one set that I remembered to photograph.  I have actually made this same set several times over for different people and they have all loved it.  It uses one of my (many) favorite retired DSP packs, I think it was called Jersey Shore but now all of the sudden I cannot remember.   I made this particular set for a friend who is a little bit of a tom-boy, which of course there is nothing wrong with.  Here are a few of the cards.

I think that this set had 14 cards in it because that is all I could get out of the remaining pieces of paper.  None of the cards were exactly the same, colors or ribbons or sentiments were changed on each card.  This basic design is super simple and can be used with any of Stampin’ Up!’s fabulous dsp packs. 

Stamps: Defining Alphabet, Lots of Thoughts (retired)

Ink: Wild Wasabi (retired)

Paper:  Whisper White, Brilliant Blue, Wild Wasabi(retired), Pumpkin Pie, Jersey Shore DSP(retired)

Accessories:  Pumpkin grosgrain, Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabie (retired) striped grosgrain

Tools:  Big Shot, Top Note Bigz die, Curly Label Punch
