Got some new stuff...oh, yeah, baby!
One of my new recruits emailed me about her kit coming tomorrow and said, "It's going to be like Christmas!"
And it still is, 3 years later. I really enjoy being a demonstrator. There have been times I've wanted to quit, usually when I've overextended myself and took on too much. After Christmas this past year I really thought about it. I was tired, at a creative low ebb, and I was feeling like I just had too much stuff and should stop while I was ahead.
Then the Spring Mini came out and I was a goner again. I got very excited about stamping with the new sets in there and the summer mini was also a winner.
I'm not as thrilled with the Holiday Mini (for which I was thankful, having bought almost everything in both Spring and Summer minis!), but I already had to order one more set than my initial order. Here is what I've made with it so far. I really like playing with this set! I embossed with black EP on Naturals White, then painted in with Aquapainter and the ink from the pads. While I like the watercolor crayons, I don't have any for the In Colors, of course, and this one uses Cranberry Crisp, a color which I dearly love. Stampin' Up! recently issued us a new In Color matching chart with color combos containing the new colors and our regular colors, so this is the first combo I picked.
Since I had actually borrowed this set from my upline, Sharon, before mine came, I ended up making her a copy of this card when I returned her set; she is doing the same with the sets she is borrowing from me. I also need to make a copy of the Ornamassortment card I posted last time for her.
I've got all my new sets almost cut...see "Latest Acquisitions" in the sidebar for what I got!
