Paper adventures team blog hop – Goodbyes

Yay it’s Friday!

The theme for the Paper Adventures blog hop this month is Goodbyes. I decided to not make a “goodbye” sentiment card as such except to make a card using products from the annual catalogue that will be retiring on 3 June that I will be saying goodbye to. I must give a warm welcome to this months guest designer, Teneale Williams.


My card showcases all the 2017-2019 in colours, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig. Not a colour combo I would normally put together but somehow it works teamed up with the Oh So Eclectic Stamp Set.

It is often sad to say goodbye to some of our favourites but at the same time I am excited welcome new products into my craft stash. Always fun to have new products to play with and I am excited with the new products in the annual 2019-2020 catalogue.

One of the amazing products that I am happy is sticking around is the well written dies. These can be purchased on their own or as a bundle with the stamp set. I actually scored this amazing stamp set at November 2018 onstage event I went to in Brisbane. One of the awesome perks of being a demonstrator. If you love to craft and would like to be a part of my team click here for all the information.

My suggestion with these dies is to use the adhesive sheets on the back of the card stock before die cutting. This makes it so much easier to adhere to your project without getting messy glue everywhere!


If you live locally to the Bunbury area and do not have a demonstrator of your own already, I would love to be your demonstrator. If you would like to get your hands on a copy of the new catalogue, get in touch with me and I will get one to you.

I think I will miss Tranquil Tide in colour the most, which one will you miss? The 2019-2021 in colours are so beautiful! I can’t wait to show them to you.

So it may be time to say goodbye to some of our favourite products but I can tell you now that there are some super exciting new products that will be available to you soon!

Make sure you hop around the blog to see what everyone else has made. Next up is my lovely friend Kelly Kent. Click on the next button below to see what she has created.

Happy Weekend!

  1. It’s Berry Burst that I’ve shed a tear over retiring. I love that colour so much. I love how you’ve managed to use all the colours together on this card and show how well they work together. I always think of Oh So Eclectic as “Mandy’s stamp set”, and once again you’ve used it beautifully.

    1. Thanks Siobhan, good to know there is a “Mandy’s stamp set” out there haha! I will miss Berry Burst too, but so looking forward to the 5 new fresh colours!


  2. I can’t look at cards with this bundle without thinking of you – you’ve made some fabulous projects with it. I’m going to miss Tranquil Tide as well, but so excited for the new peacock colour!!! Kelly x
