The retiring lists are out at Stampin' Up! today and you can bet that I skipped over the stamps and went right to the accessories list to see what the powers that rule were doing to my punch collection. You'd think they'd leave me alone since they are taking away all my skin tone paper.
First glance was a wave of relief - nothing TOO major will be retired. They are "reconfiguring" lots of punches - which I think means they will be repackaged somehow - or maybe switched to that new flat style of punch. ???
The My Way Arrows will be leaving us - and while I have found this punch handy handy handy I will survive its retirement. The flower trio is leaving too - I'm OK with that - there are plenty of things that can be substituted. But we have BAD BAD NEWS.....
No more slot punch!
Woe is me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Use these for:
Eyebrows (lots of eyebrows),
dog collars (including Snoopy's),
links of chain,
fingers (biker, Linus),
buckles on coats and shoes.
And all that is just what i can remember off the top of my head!
Punch art will go on with out the slot punch but it is tiny and it doesn't cost much and if you don't have one you should ORDER IT SOON because it is a handy one to have. I promise it won't leave its prominent place in the best punch drawer. It won't be moving into the retired drawer. Nope - I'm keeping it front and center.
Now to go see what they are doing to my stamp collection...
