My Top Picks From The Retiring List: Get Them Before They Are Gone

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. I am here with a second post today to share my top picks from the the retiring list. As you know the new Stampin' Up! annual catalogue is due in June and as usual there is a retiring list and some things are reduced by 20%, 25%, 40% and a whopping 60%. I have been through the list of 60% of and bring you my best buys from the list.

My Top Picks From The Retiring Annual Catalogue


I cannot believe how much of a bargain this first item is! Some of the die sets work as stand alone dies and some would need the stamp set to be useful, but maybe you already have the stamp set or you could buy the stamp set as well and this would still be a bargain bundle for you :-)

I have added links to some items at the end of this post so you can find the items quicker, I have not been able to do them all as it takes hours and you can have fun searching! I would also check out the clearance rack as well !

These are just screen shots of my shop to act as a visual for you, you can log onto my shop and for ease enter the item code that is in the screenshot to go directly to the item. Please ensure you have "Shopping with Gez Carpenter' showing and please also enter this months host code so I can send you a thank you gift for shopping with me :-)

The biggest bargain of them all! 

Seriously had to do a double take when I saw this on the list. I fell in love with the paper in this medley when we got a sneak peak of it last November. For £26 you get a stamp set and matching dies, 48 sheets of double sided 6"x6" DSP, a reel of ribbon, 4 laser cut sheets and 4 die cut sheets plus some little bee embellishments.

I do love a tin! This has been on my wish list for ever!

I love this stamp set and will really miss it, if you have the Daisy punch then it is a must.

Are you like me at the moment and making lots of cards to send to people? Well look at these card and envelop sets, what a bargain and the foiling adds some luxury to the card as well.

Who doesn't like a bit of bling on their projects?

These laser cut papers are stunning and if you look back to this time last year you will see some projects where I used the laser cuts as stencils and created some wonderful cards.

This is a bargain for the library clips alone, this is on my list twice! lol

Oh more tins, love these little tins, they are great from craft storage or as a gift box, you get 4 tins so that works out at £1.40 a tin!

This ribbon would be great for Christmas projects. How many of you have started your Christmas cards while you have been on lockdown? 


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! My Top Picks From The Retiring List: Get Them Before They Are Gone


Here we have some great embellishments for your projects and at this price you can afford to go a bit OTT with them.

I am really going to miss using these next 2 punches, so useful for layering small sentiments and a great price as well.

Here we have some die sets, some work great without the stamp set but others may require the stamps to get the most out of the dies.

I love this die set and have used it with out the stamps on many projects, love the butterfly especially.

Finally we have a great all inclusive card kit. you gt everything you need to make 20 cards plus a stamp set with fabulous sentiments and images so you can go on creating great cards after you have made the 20 in the kit. Also gives you 4 water colouring pencils, an ink spot and an acrylic block, the kit is worth it just for those.

My Top Picks From The Mini Catalogue


It does not seem that long ago that this catalogue was launched and now we are into the last 5 1/2 weeks of it. I have loved this catalogue.

I will be so sad to say goodbye to one of my favourite stamp sets. But don't worry it will be popping up in my Junk Journal :- )


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! My Top Picks From The Retiring List: Get Them Before They Are Gone


This set is stunning with the stitched star dies, so if you have those then get this stamp set as well, its a snip at £6.40

As you know,  if you follow me, I make loads of Easter cards every year and this set makes the perfect Easter card, it has spring flowers, a lovely cross and beautiful sentiment and a fabulous Easter greeting with a great font. You can make both religious and non religious cards with this and not just restricted to Easter. 


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! My Top Picks From The Retiring List: Get Them Before They Are Gone


I love these note cards and they help you make a quick card if you are in a hurry.  You get 24 3"x3" cards and envelopes, only need to add a sentiment but of course you can add more if you want. They even fit inside the copper tea tins so you could have a fab gift set. 


Nigezza Creates with Stampin' Up! My Top Picks From The Retiring List: Get Them Before They Are Gone



Another great card kit is reduced, the stamp set is separate and you need to add your own ink but it is still a bargain for 16 cards and best of all you have a really pretty box to put them in until you need them.
