New stamping stuff!

Before I get to the new catalog stuff, this is the envelope punch board I had pre-ordered back in March! Yeah, it took that long to come in!!! I know people use their scoring boards to make envelopes, but I've tried that and I suck at it, lol! I'm hoping this will work well because I love having fancy, matching envelopes for my cards.

Now, for my guilt-ridden, excessive, new catalog order! LOL!  This year SU has revamped their wood-mount stamp cases and they're pretty fabulous. I only buy clear-mount stamps...unless that isn't an option, (usually with single stamp sets.) They have two different sizes, large and small, and two small cases equal the same amount of "shelf space" as one large case. It turned out that I ordered one large and three small stamp sets as you can see here:

Since I immediately convert all stamps to cling, I didn't need to save the inserts for these cases. So now I have four handy cases to be filled....eventually....with something cool!

These are the clear-mount stamp sets I ordered! Thomas brought the mail home yesterday and after dinner I opened up everything, got rid of most of the packaging and put together all these sets. I don't put the stickers on the stamps (because they won't cling then, AND it's a pain!!), but instead use them for my stamp binder so I don't have to stamp them all into it.

Everything else fit into this box:
Yes, it's a lot of stuff!!!

New In-Color dahlias.

All spread out

I got four sets of new designer paper packs, 12 x 12 In Color card stock and In Color DSP.

Ribbon & buttons!

Two new punches, glittery versamark type inkpad, new Smoky Slate embossing powder and builder brads in ALL the colors!!

In Color markers, Smoky Slate marker (only missing the Soft Sky marker not available as a single - grrr!!), three new framelits and a new embossing folder.

One of my favorites of the order - a magnetic platform for my Big Shot!!! No more post-it notes for my Spellbinder and framelit dies!!!! Wooo Hooo!! Also a new pop-n-cuts die. It might be hard to see in the photos but it matches the new deco labels framelits.

As one of my 1/2 off items, I decided to get another ink caddy. I really don't have room for it, but my collection of ink pads was overflowing and it was already a pain to store them and find the colors I was looking for.
It's not completely filled up, but with 5 new colors every year, it won't take long!

So....now I really do have to go through my room and re-organize!!! There are many things I have that I don't use anymore, stamps I've outgrown, etc and I need to weed it all out. It's going to make for some amazing eBay listings for sure. I probably should have started this while I was (im)patiently waiting on this stuff to arrive, but life tends to throw out some curveballs sometimes. Needless to say, I will be busy in the Stamping Studio for quite some time!!!!! The holiday catalog pre-view starts tomorrow and I'm not even going to LOOK!!! I don't need anything....and I don't want to be tempted any further, lol!

Love all of your goodies. I placed an order on Friday and now can't wait until it gets here! Am really anxious to see the smoke gray. It's bound to be so pretty.

I just love seeing what you have added to your collection of goodies. You are going to need a whole new room just to store everything. ^_^

That envelope punch board is new to me. I've made envelopes, but just on my own. I couldn't figure out how to do it with the Martha Stewart board, either--hehe!

Those dahlias look like candy! What an assortment of goodies!! I could almost feel how exciting it was to open that big box!! Whoohoo!! :)


I am impressed with the envelope board. That is most impressive. Can't wait to see what all you new goodies produce.
