We’re still in the early days of Stampin’ Up!’s Annual Catalog Last Chance promotion. Lots of products – including too many stamp sets, as far as I’m concerned – are going to retire as of the end of the day May 2, 2022. Over the next few weeks I’m going to share some of my favorite sets that will be retiring.
My Early Favorites when the current 2021-2022 Annual Catalog was released were:
- Turtle Friends (with the Turtle Punch that was bundled with it)
- Seascape (with the Sea Life Dies)
- All Squared Away (with the Floral Squares Dies)
The Turtle Friends Stamp Set – Retiring!
Here are a couple of the projects that I made with the Turtle Friends Bundle.
For the first project, I made a card using what was then the new Give It A Whirl Dies. The good news is that the die set is NOT going to retire. But those darling turtle stamps, with the punch to cut out the larger of the turtles, definitely will retire as of May 2, 2022.

For another project, I used the turtles with the Watercolor Shapes stamp set to create a background for the little critters. Click here to visit the original post about those products.
The Seascape Stamp Set – Retiring!
The Seascape Stamp Set was my absolute favorite stamp set from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog. How could it not be when I was living in Hawai’i at the time? Even now that I’m in Florida, I’m still quite in love with everything having to do with the ocean. I’ve just moved from the Pacific to the Atlantic area.
This card was one that I copied from a bundle sample in the catalog. I just loved making this card, especially with the Layering Diorama Dies – NOT retiring! Click here to read more about this project.
Once again, I used the Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set for another project using the Seascape bundle. Click here to learn more about this card.
Finally the All Squared Away Stamp Set and Floral Squares Dies – Retiring!
I made this card as part of a small blog hop that I used to participate in with my sister Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator from the Island of Maui, Cheryl Hamilton. I do miss being close and sharing my experiences with her. But we still keep in touch.
But I digress. Here’s the project that I created using a soon-to-be-retiring set of paper (purchased only with Stampin’ Rewards, even as a retiring product. Click here to learn how I made this project
