Crop and Create Fun!

Hello stampers! Yes – the Retiring Lists are Now Available! You can purchase from the lists, and you may want to be quick about some products, as they tend to sell out faster than others.

The best way to shop, so you don’t miss out on anything while waiting, is to order directly from my OnLine Store. Everyone who places a $50 or more item online, using Host Code KWPTAWEH will receive a little ‘thank you’ from me, in May! Access my store by clicking the buttons below.

Before you start to sweat, when you see all those ink pads on the retiring lists….breathe!! Stampin’ Up! has reconfigured the ink pad style, so that it’s now going to be easier to open (I always joke with my first-time stampers that it’s like a secret handshake!), the ink has been reconfigured so it doesn’t ‘bubble’, a tighter fit when closed, and more easily stackable.


Don’t worry – you’ll still be able to use new ink refills on  your existing ink pads, and old ink refills on your new ink pads – the only exceptions being the current Archival inks. They WILL be retiring, so you don’t want to use your new Basic Black ink refill on a retired Archival Black ink.  In fact, both of Black and Basic Gray Archival inks are retiring; the Basic Gray is reconfigured and now a Classic Ink. The Archival Black is not being replace, but rather it’s suggested that you now use either the Memento Tuxedo Black ink, or – wait for it – StaZon Jet Black ink! Yes – it’s coming back, and I couldn’t be happier! 🙂


These colours are retiring – which means not just the ink pads themselves, but the ink refills, ribbons, embellishments, cardstock – anything with these colours, will be gone! Be sure to order them right away!

If you recognize a few colours, it’s because a few of them are making a comeback! Did you notice that Flirty Flamingo, even though it’s an ‘In Color’, isn’t on the retiring list? That’s because it’s staying, just moved into one of the colour families.  A few more In Colors that are returning are; Mossy Meadow, Poppy Parade, Coastal Cabana, Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss. Have a look!

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)
