Retiring Products Project Ideas

Now that the retiring product list for the 2016-17 Catalog and the Occasions Catalog have been released, I've been separating my retiring products from the products that are carrying over into the new catalog.  I'm going to miss some of the products that will no longer be available for purchase. There are a LOT that I will not be parting with!

Botanical gardens and the coordinating thinlits are among my favorite products that are retiring.

This is a card set that participants made in one of my classes.
It has 3 style cards along with a card case with tag and a matching pen. 
You can find the list of products used at the bottom of this post.

I cased my cards from cards made by
Kay Kalthoff (middle card) at,
Tami White (drapery fold card on the right) at
and Pat Martin (card on the left) at

The card case is made from a large wood mount stamp case.
The hardest part about making the card case is finding screws to fit with the card case to attach the handle. The screws that come with the handle are too long.
I found both my handle and the screws at Lowes.

Inspiration for the card set came
 from Stampin' Up! demonstrator Chiaki Haverstick.
You can see her designs HERE 

Note that the designer series paper, 1 1/4' burlap Ribbon, Hello Honey card stock and Mossy Meadow card stock retired previously so are no longer available. You can easily substitute other products if you do not own them.
