Happiness Is...

Hello friends!

It's been a big week for Stampin' Up! and their demonstrators... the 2016 Retiring List was released, followed by the sneak peek of the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog - now, the latter is for demos only, but lemme tell ya - it's TOTALLY worth the wait!  It will go LIVE at the beginning of June.

In the meantime - the Retiring List is where it's at! Click here to pop over to my site and check it out - not only is it the last chance to snap up some of my favourite products, but many of them are on clearance-rack prices already!  If you don't have a demonstrator already, I would love to be yours - Canada only, please!

Speaking of Clearance Rack prices... did you know Stampin' Up! has a clearance rack?!  Many of our old, retired favourites are on there, and the prices are insane.  Like, totally cray-cray.  They're practically giving them away.  And today's project features one of my favourites - the Happiness Is Project Life Kit.  The Card Collection is $7.98 - that's not a typo - and packs 100 cards in a gorgeous colour pallet.  Want to jazz it up a bit?  The coordinating accessory pack is only $5!

I used the Happiness Is collection to whip up this layout.  We had a family photo shoot in the fall with the amazing Danna Bowes, a local portrait photographer, and I wanted to do something special with one of our prints.

The colour pallet in this collection is to die for - and much of it is retiring!  Blackberry Bliss, Lost Lagoon, and Tangelo Twist will be gone, gone, gone come June... you'll want to be sure to grab inks and cardstock to go with this kit!

Now that I'm looking at this page a little bit more closely - there's not a single thing on here that ISN'T retiring!  The stamp, the doily, the ribbons - even the paperclip.  It's all going to be gone!  I'd cry, but I already have it all... do you??

Just because it's retiring doesn't mean you need to set it aside - use your favourites and showcase them!
