In amongst all the excitement about the release of the new catalogue in June, we were able to see the list of all the products from the current catalogue which will be retiring. This is always a sad moment for me - there are always some of my favourites on the list. And being a business demo, I tend to only craft with current products so often my favourites end up unused and discarded. This time I was dismayed to see that one of my all time favourite stamp sets, along with the coordinating dies was going. The Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and coordinating Bouquet Bunch dies. So I thought I would allow myself to reminisce about some of my favourite projects made with these products. Before I start though, just to let you know, the dies are currently heavily discounted - £11.20 instead of £28.00 - what a bargain! But be aware once they are gone, they will not be restocked.
Anyway onto to the projects - in no particular order.
This was one of the first projects I made and I still love it.
This card uses only the die set - no stamps needed!
Wow! Such a fancy fold card for me! A double Z fold!! Love the colours.
And another fancy fold!
Getting a bit arty on this one. Inspired by a Pin on Pinterest.
What I loved best about the stamp set was how it made #simplestamping so easy!
Another one of my favourites.
Here I have used one of the sentiments and some die cut foliage.
Beautiful bouquet of tulips. Stamp set lives up to it's name.
And of course the two cards I made most recently.
Hope you enjoyed that journey through some previous projects.
Have a great day,
EDITED AFTER WRITING: I wrote this post a few days ago. Since then it appears the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set has sold out. The dies are still available. If you are wishing you had managed to buy the stamp set, please get in touch - I have a spare set which I will be allowed to sell after June 2nd.
