We each have favorite CTMH products that are about to retire. We're highlighting these on our blog hop today. You may have just come from Jean McNulty's blog. If you'd like to see the entire list of participants, you can find them on Melinda Everitt's blog.
I'll find it hard to say goodbye to the Rustic Home Fundamentals paper pack and all of the ribbons. I enjoy using the woodgrain papers in that pack for Christmas cards and masculine cards. I'll also miss the coloring with the Blending Pens when mine dry up!
The woodgrain papers can also be girly. Pink flowers and some Sea Glass glitter paper look great on the opposite side of the woodgrain paper which has a gray tone. The flowers are from one of the stamp sets re-introduced for this month only, April Word Puzzle.
Now you're ready to go on to Tammy Lubick's blog.
