Friends of SUBA April Blog Hop – Retiring Products

Good morning everyone and welcome to Friends of SUBA April Blog Hop. As you may have already guessed, this month we are featuring Stampin’ Up! Retiring products – so products that are retiring from 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. In one way it’s a sad time of year to see so many beautiful retiring products  from the annual catalogue but in another way its a very exciting time of year because we demonstrators who attended Onstage last weekend in Telford in the UK, received the new 2018/2019 Annual catalogue and are looking forward to planning classes and events with some gorgeous new products!

Now if this is the first time that you have come across our SUBA blog hop and are wondering what SUBA stands for – well it stands for “Simply Unique Business Angels”. You can find out more about what my fabulous friends Louise Sims and Pip Todman are doing if you go to

The retiring product which I have chosen to feature in blog post today is Grown with Love. You can find it on page 22 in the annual catalogue and comes with coordinating framelits.

These are four  of the images which are in the bundle. The flowers are stamped in Pear Pizzazz and then I stamped them again, the image on the left I stamped in Pink Pirouette and the image on the right I stamped in So Saffron. I then die cut the flowers out with framellits that are included in the set and raised them up with dimensionals.

I added a little gingham bow to complete my flower arrangement.

I thought the little wooden heart added something special to the sentiment. The “Congratulations” comes from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I love the font !
