Hop to it: Stampin’ Up!’s Retiring Celebration Add-on Kits

Published by under cards | Apr 26 2015

Check out the Australian Stampin' Up! Retiring Products (2015) at www.simonebartrum.com

Hi friends. Today I’m back blog-hopping again with just a few of my crafting buddies.

You may have come from Jess’s blog over at The Paper Caper. I want to be just like Jess when I grow up… isn’t she amazing?

We thought it would be fun to share what we’ve been doing with the Retiring Products.

Eeek! Retiring? Yep, this is your last chance to grab them before they’re gone. And they are going FAST, let me tell you!

So today I’m sharing a few projects made with one of the hidden gems in the catalogue. We found out last week that this product WILL NOT be in the new catalogue.

Not only that, it’s now HALF PRICE.


So what is this product?

Calypso Coral Add-On Kit (#133431). Available in Australia while supplies last, from www.simonebartrum.com

It’s the Calypso Coral Celebration Add-On Kit (with a few added bits and pieces).

The kit is marked in the catalogue at AUD$16.95, which I feel was a pretty awesome price anyway.

But while supplies last it is only AUD$8.48. Wow.

The kit is designed to complement the Celebration Basics Kit, to help you make an awesome looking banner kinda like this,

but I really love working with it on its own.

Included is a gorgeous stitched garland, heaps of die-cut accents, patterned papers (including some really cool gold foil paper), and self-adhesive streamers. You even get a Stampin’ Spritzer which you can fill with alcohol and ink refill for a cool spritzing effect.

To make these cards I simply added Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock and some of my favourite stamps, along with the die-cut pieces and patterned papers from the kit. I managed to whip these cards up in no time.

    Awesome projects Simone! Always great to see some out-of-the-box uses for products. How will we ever do without Crisp Cantaloupe??

    I know! But I’m sure the new catty will give us lots of great new treats to keep us busy.

    Simone, I have so much to learn from you……I would never have thought to use the extension kit on a card! Thanks for the inspiration.
