Are any of your favorites retiring?

Now is the season when we say good bye to some of our favorite papers, embellishments and tools.  Of course Close to My Heart promises some more great paper crafting supplies to come in the Autumn/Winter idea book. 

But, if there is something special you want or a project you need to finish, now is the time to order!  I will post the retiring list in a tab at the top of my blog.  When you place an order by June 30th, join my “mystery hostess” party and I will enter you in a drawing to win the hostess rewards!  That means $25 in FREE product from Close to My Heart!

This card features the Claire paper packet and Girls Rock stamp set.  Although the stamp set will still be available in the fall, the Claire paper and associated embellishments will retire and are available only “while supplies last.”

Double Flap Birthday Card

I love the flip flappy style of this card.  First you open the small front flap and then the second bigger flap to read the greeting inside.  This card was created by a fellow consultant Mary Thomas from the Claire paper kit. 

If you like this paper, please be aware that it and some of the coordinating products will be retiring at the end of July.  (Gotta make room for some new things coming up.)  You can shop for it on my website and the detailed items are listed below.  You can see other items created with this paper here, and here.


G1056 Claire Workshop on the Go $29.95
X7166B  Claire Paper Packet $9.95
X7166C Claire Complement Canvas Shapes $5.95
