ESAD so long old favourites blog hop

No photo description available.

It’s that time of the year again when we say goodbye to some of our favourite products in the Annual 2018-2019 and the Occasions 2019 catalogues.

Welcome to the ESAD so long favourites blog hop. I am excited to be a part of this blog hop, I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has created with their favourite products that will soon be retiring.

Choosing a favourite for me was hard, I have lots of favourites that are retiring which is sad but it also means I get to make room for new favourites!

One of my favourite retiring sets is the Jar of Love stamp set and dies. That stamp set is just so pretty! I have created a Z fold card using this set.

Lovely lipstick, flirty flamingo and soft sea foam colours were used on this card. Another favourite is the all my love designer series paper from the 2019 Occasions Catalogue. This DSP is so gorgeous and it compliments so well with the Jar of Love stamp set.

To make this Z fold card, I took a piece of thick whisper white cardstock measuring 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ and scored at 4 1/8″ and 1 1/4″.

Patty Bennett has made a wonderful video on this type of card. You can view her video here

I recently made this same style of card in my monthly card class. I really like the simplicity of this fold but it just gives that little something extra.

This card used the piece of cake stamp set and punch which is definitely carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalogue but the all my love designer series paper is not so I suggest if you love it (or any other retiring favourites) to make sure that you order before they sell out!

I hope you get some amazing inspiration from this blog hop. Please be sure to click on the next button below to head over to the super talented Denise Buetler. I wonder what lovely creation Denise has in store for us?

That’s all from me, I am off to create something else at my craft desk.

Catch you next time,

Mandy x
