Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop

Wow! Time has surely flown by. It is May and time for another Blog Hop. I hope that you will take the time to hop all the way through, this group is full of talent that you don't want to miss out on. This month we are focusing on stamp sets that are retiring May 31st. Maybe we will inspire you to get a stamp set before it is gone forever.

One of the first stamp sets I noticed was retiring was Aviary. I don't know when I became such a bird lover but somewhere along the way I have bought just about every bird set SU! has come out with. Aviary was first on my list when it came out a couple of years ago. I will be sad that it will no longer be available but it will remain in my SU! stamp stash.

Along with this retiring stamp set is a favorite color, Baja Breeze which is also going into retirement. I have loved this blue for a long time and I am sad to see it go. I'm sure I will move on but for now I mourn the loss of this color. I paired the Baja Breeze with Basic Grey and Cajun Craze, this color combo comes from the Color Coach which is a great tool to use when you aren't sure what colors to go with for a project.

I hope I have inspired you today. If you own Aviary pull it out today and create a card or go and purchase it and create away!

Items Used: Aviary Stamp Set; Basic Grey, Baja Breeze, Cajun Craze Card Stock; Basic Grey & Cajun Craze Stamp Pads; Baja Breeze Seam Binding; Big Shot; Chevron Embossing Folder
