Some More Good-Byes for Color Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches

There's only a little over two weeks left for all of the retiring products, so I wanted to get a few more fond farewells in before the deadline. Today I'm featuring the beautiful English Garden Designer Series Paper, the Kraft & White Corrugated Paper, and the Six-Sided Sampler Stamp Set, all of which will be leaving us for good after May 31st.

These were the perfect products to use for two great challenges! The colour palette of this card was based on the Challenge Swatch from Color Throwdown:

Doesn't that just make you want to head off to Greece right now? I spent some lovely days in Greece on the island of Naxos, back in the seventies! I'd love to go back.

The layout is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge sketch:

Take a closer look:

  • English Garden Designer Series Paper was certainly made for this challenge, especially this particular design, which also just happens to be my favourite from the whole set, but take a look at the other designs in the pack: (Unfortunately, it is now out of stock!)

  • One of the retiring products that I'm uber distressed about is the Kraft & White Corrugated Paper. I LOVE that stuff, but then you know I'm all about texture, right? It gives amazing texture to your products! Why didn't we order more of it, so it wouldn't be retired??

You can still order this stuff if you hurry, but after May 31st it is gone, gone, gone!
  • The sentiment is from the retiring Six-Sided Sampler, and adorable set featuring hexagons:
This should be available until the new catalogue comes out.
