Last fall I told y'all I was working on a punch art book, and I was. Then Daddy died and I got off kilter. Yesterday's announcement retiring the small oval punch(sob!) made it clear to me that a book just isn't practical to do - when the punches are not available for purchase, who would buy a book?
And basically, half the punch art on this blog is useless without this punch. Never thought they would retire such a basic shape - but alas, Stampin' Up! is focused on stamping not punching - the company is not called "Punching Up!", now is it? (grin)
As disappointing as this is, we will all survive somehow.
Yes, life will go on without the small oval punch, and it will CERTAINLY go on without my "1/4 th written" book ever seeing the light of day.
I still get regular emails from some readers asking about this project, so I thought I'd let you ALL know to stop expecting it.
Now, if you don't already own them, go order those punches before they are all sold out!
