Retiring! Retiring! Retiring! Oh So Succulent Bundle

Sad But True, Discontinued In Review, But A Few Gems Still Available!
Oh So Succulent Bundle

Let me get the gripe session out of the way first! I am coming on my first year anniversary with Stampin' Up! The Occasions Catalog was one of my firsts in line of many first experiences with Stampin' Up! I would like to talk about a few of those firsts as hard lessons.  

The Occasions Catalog was phenomenal! I reference it in the past tense due to many of the items in this catalog that are no longer available even though the Catalog dates carry through to May 31, 2017.

If I could have my wish, the retiring of this Spring catalog would not see the light of day so soon.  In addition, with so many amazing products, how wonderful it would be to have the retirement of items and suites stagger with the end of each event, holiday, or season they represent!
My Events that were planned through May with coordinating celebrations that have yet to arrive, will need new ideas and planning around other options. Suites that have sold out, unfortunately, become a personal loss of time and money. In addition, my customers, planning and budgeting each months purchases up to May 31, lose too!  Sad days...

To review, If I could have a wish, a wish that came true, more of the Seasonal products would became permanent staples of Stampin' Up!, instead of seeing there end so soon!

However, in our ever faster moving society and culture, it is out with the old and in with the new...Before, I move too quickly with the shiny and new, let us take one last glimpse of the Oh So Succulent Bundle.  

While the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper is no longer available, the Oh So Succulent Bundle has yet to met its tragic end!  This set has inspired my creative prowess even before the products fell into my little hands!  I so wish this suite stayed a while longer!  I am not done with all the potential this Suite could bring to my future projects! That goes for Suites that have left the stage like the Special Reason Bundle, and the nothing else like it, Nailed it Bundle! Parting is so, so bitter and not at all sweet!--Sorry, I guess my gripe session has yet to pass...

With this lovely set, I surrounded a circle punched A2 size Thick Whisper White card front with an assortment of colored succulent blossoms. The entire top panel is popped up, as well as a few of the succulent plants, adding some interest and dimension. This rich bouquet, surrounds a blended background and various Thanks sentiments from a selection of stamp sets in my stash. Each Thanks has been stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in white.

Farewell my sweet Oh So Succulent Bundle, Sealed With Love Bundle, Special Reason Bundle, and others!
