Well it’s been a busy week in the world of Stampin’Up! On August 1st the Retired List from the 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalogue was released plus we could start ordering our sneak peek products from the new 2011-2012 IB&C as well as our boxes of new catalogues! I’m hoping my first load of goodies is going to land on my doorstep tomorrow! I can’t see too much happening in my house once that box is opened and I start examining the new catalogue.
To remind you of some of the items that will be retiring I’ve posted photos of one of the diamond fold cards I made for my recent class. All the Designer Series Papers in the current catalogue will be retiring to make way for some gorgeous new papers.
The Designer Series paper used for this card is from the Lap of Luxury pack of papers. This set of papers co-ordinates with Concord Crush, Basic Grey, Pretty in Pink and Very Vanilla cardstock.
Do you like my fan fold flower? I thought it made a lovely decoration for my diamond fold card. When it comes to decorating one of these cards you can let your imagination run wild! Once you have the basic structure folded you can add all sorts of embellishments, panels or stamped images to your card.

It is always sad to see some old favourite sets retiring but on the upside is the prospect of using some lovely new sets and having them become firm favourites!
