Welcome to the May Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop. This hop rotates in a circular motion so it doesn't matter where you start, you'll hop through every post. If you're following in order, you've come from Kath's blog and you'll leave here to Deborah's blog. At any time, you may click the HOME button below and return to the Wacky Watercooler main blog where you'll see a list of all the participants and the links to their blogs.
My post today is mostly focusing on the retiring products and last chance items.
First up, I have made this card using the Oh Hello stamp set. I was sad to see this one on the retiring list as it is one of my all time favorite stamp sets. I also used the Woodgrain background stamp on this card. The Woodgrain is being replaced by the Hardwood stamp set that is featured in the Occasions Catalogue. I love the new Hardwood stamp but I will keep my Woodgrain for when I want a softer wood look on my projects. Also featured on this card is the retiring In-Colors Primrose Petals and Gumball Green. I love these colors, but the new In-Colors are great too. You can see them further down on this post. Don't forget to order all your favorite retiring items. Many products on the retiring list are already sold out, so don't delay or you'll miss out!
Next up is my version of the wreath kit that is available in the Occasions catalogue. I really liked this and when I started working on it, there was still snow outside and somehow by the time I finished this project, the snow was gone. I think it must be magic. I really liked the pop of color on the burlap background. It was really easy to make as the kit includes all the pieces you need to make this. You just need to add some hot glue to put the pieces together. I also used my new fringe scissors for a couple of the flower centres. I didn't follow the pattern on the instructions exactly as I wanted to make this wreath my own. It's really a fun project that I think you and your kids would enjoy too. The Occasions catalogue is still good until the end of May so hurry and get your wreath kit while you can.
Thank you for hopping along with me. I hope you have enjoyed the projects I have shared today. Please leave a comment to let me know you were here before you continue along the hop.
