I hate to say it, but April is almost gone!  Can you believe just how fast time flies when you’re having fun…or just being a busy person?  May is just around the corner, and that marks the closing month for the Occasions catalog.  There are so many wonderful things in this catalog, and I’m sad to see it go.  Yes, some things will carry over into next year’s annual catalog, but not all of the wonderful things!

This week, the Sisters In Stamping designers are featuring our favorite retiring Occasions products.  If you’ve been following me, I bet you have a good idea of what my  favorite items are already.  But that won’t stop me from sharing!  I love the Picture Perfect Party 6×6 DSP.  It is just so much fun!

These balloons were made to look even more “baloon-like” by using a puffing technique.  To do this, I cut out the image and placed it face-down on my piercing mat.  I gently rubbed the back with a stylus (bone folder works too) until the edges started to curl up a little.  When the entire back was rubbed to my satisfaction, I used dimensionals to maintain the shape and adhere them on my card.

Here are the items I used for today’s project:

Here is another look at today’s project.  These balloons really are a lot of fun and super easy too!  Give it a try.  Don’t forget to order those items on your wish list that are expected to retire.  Stop by my online store and head directly over to the retired listing.  Stamp sets are guaranteed through the end of the sale period, but embellishments and supplies are only while inventory is still available.

Thank you so much for joining me today.  Now head over to the Sisters In Stamping blog to see what the other designers created with their retiring Occasions favorites!
