Five of My Favorites from the Stampin' Up! Last Chance List


Let's take a look at five of my favorites from the Last Chance List from Stampin' Up!

The Last Chance List is composed of products that are "retiring" or discontinued.  Most are only available while supplies last.

  1. Cross of Hope Dies #145654 $10.80
    This a great deal on these dies!  I have used the crosses more times that I can count.  Pair it with the Hold On To Hope stamp set if you'd like the set.  This stamp set is also retiring.

    Here's a home decór piece using one of the cross dies and here's a card using the dies in combination with the stamp set.

  2. Nature's Roots Dies #146341- $15.60

    This is another beautiful set of dies that is highly discounted due to a change in manufacturer.  Pair it with the Rooted In Nature stamp set for a beautiful set than can be used year round!  See two of my favorite cards with these products  HERE and HERE.
  3. Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards and Tin #149595 -$14.40

    Use with any image or coordinating paper of your liking then present as a beautiful gift!

  4. Come Sail Away Memories and More Card Pack #149552 $7.70

    Love this kit! You can make some awesome masculine cards with these cards and elements.  Take a look at this easy Father's Day card!
  5. Bonanza Buddies Bundle #153815 and Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper

These coordinating products are darling!  At first glance you might think it's just for projects for the "littles" but can really be used for anyone!  Take a look HERE and HERE.

These are just some of my favorites but you really need to take a look at all the fabulous products that are going away.  There are some great deals on some items that you could stock up to have on hand:

Easy Rubber Stamping Technique with Ink and Stampin' Up! Layered with Kindness
