Weekly Deals + Retiring List Live Tomorrow!

crazy about you bunts birthday peek.jpg

It's back to school day for half of my children today - high school girl gets an extra two days before she starts back, much to the disgust of the small one, who had to frock up in her winter uniform bright and early after a fabulously restful two week break! School holidays always mean a relatively quiet time on the blog as I hang out with my girls and spend a bunch more time in pyjamas than would ordinarily be deemed civilised...

But I'm here now, to let you know a couple of things that are going on around the stampin' scene...

Weekly Deals are ongoing with some great ones this week, ending tomorrow! Check them out...

I grabbed some of the Washi Sheets from the Occasions Catalogue when it first went live and they're great for adding a bit of decorative flair.

This is a card that I made for my lovely Father-in-law's birthday at the end of last month and I love how it turned out!

The different circles were achieved in a variety of ways - some stamped with the centres 'left-over' rubber out of open circular stamps, some punched out of Typeset Specialty DSP, and a couple punched out of the Washi Sheets - I used the grey grid pattern.

A smattering of Candy Dots from the Subtles and Neutrals packs keeps within the circles theme and finishes it off nicely...

QUICK TIP When punching the Washi Sheets, use a scrap of cardstock to add some bulk and strength to the Washi Sheet, as they don't punch out very well on their own (ask me how I know...)

Washi Sheets and all other current Weekly Deals are available until 11.59pm (AEST) tomorrow, before they clear off to make way for the next batch, so if any of the deals catch your eye and you fancy scoring them for a fabulous discount, I suggest you get on it...

In other news, the retiring list for the current Annual Catalogue goes live TOMORROW, meaning there's likely to be a bun fight over these colours shown above. I would suspect they'd have to have been the most popular set of In-colors ever (at least, they certainly have been in my craft room, and quite frankly, I'm not sure how I'll manage without the option of Coastal Cabana...)

It's usually the case that retiring In-colors are among the first items to run out when the retiring list goes live - particularly re-inkers - so if you own the ink pads, I strongly suggest you act now to secure the re-inkers for your pads, plus any other In-color products BEFORE the retiring list hits and the feeding frenzy begins!

SHOP THE RETIRING 2013-15 IN-COLORS NOW

IMPORTANT - CONTRARY TO THE PRINTED DATE ON THE FRONT COVER OF THE CURRENT ANNUAL CATALOGUE,THE END DATE OF THIS CATALOGUE WILL NOW BE TUESDAY JUNE 2ND. THE BRAND NEW ANNUAL CATALOGUE WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE FROM ON WEDNESDAY JUNE 3RD

I'm equal portions nervous and excited to see what the retiring list holds tomorrow. It's always sad to see favourites disappear, but knowing that they're making way for exciting new products eases the pain somewhat.
