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
Ribbon & buttons!
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!
