Can I just whine a moment about how extremely sad I am about the Bride and Bridesmaid Specialty Papers being retired?! I've only recently discovered how AWESOME these papers are to custom colorize (is that a word?), and now they are about to be gone forever! WAHHHHH! *screaming and kicking tantrum*
For a complete list of all Last Chance Retiring Items, see my previous post.
Remember, all of the retired accessories will only be available "while supplies last," so make sure you place your online order for these papers today! I know I'm stocking up!
OK—I apologize in advance, but I feel another whining moment coming on…
Why, oh, why are so many of my favorite colors of ribbon being retired?! *stomps feet and pouts*
Well, the good news is that you can expect a whole new array of fun, colorful ribbons to choose from beginning in July. But, if you like the colors that are leaving, I encourage you to stock up, because many of these colors won't be replaced in the new book.
Time to suck it up and start embracing the change, Angie. (You know it's serious when I start talking to myself in third person). Instead of pouting, let's use this pre-acceptance time to celebrate with a cute new project! And, what can be cuter than these mini purses…!
Play fashion designer by punching some purse shapes in any decorative paper with the Round Tab Punch. I used Bride Specialty Paper *sniff* that I sponged with Rose Red, Ballet Blue and Lovely Lilac ink. Add a coordinating 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon handle in Rose Red (going), Night of Navy, and Elegant Eggplant (also going). Decorate with more ribbon, Silver Brads, or even an Itty Bitty flower punch accent. Too Cute!
Other Card Details: Lovely Lilac card base stamped with Bella Toile background stamp in Lovely Lilac ink. Layers of Elegant Eggplant, Brushed Silver and Night of Navy card stock. Scallop Trim Border Punch and more Rose Red ribbon. *double sniff*
Don't worry…I'll be alright…
I just placed my retired accessories order, so I'll be set for awhile! Whew! 🙂
Don't wait—order your favorites before they are gone!
