My Wish List Everything else.
Today I will share my list and thoughts on everything else in the catty. Starting first with the in colors. Last year I decided to just get a pack of the assortment cardstock and the markers. Then if I loved any of them and used them up, then I'd get the pad and a pack of cardstock. Guess what, it didn't happen. So this year I am going to do the same, although I am pretty sure that the Lemon Lime Twist pad and a pack of cardstock will follow soon after.
Now on to the other goodies.
Designer Series Paper, this is something I really shouldn't get, I just don't use enough of it but I do have a few must haves this year.
Wood Textures paper stack. I prefer paper packs, they are easier to leaf though and as a card maker, the size suits me better. The wood textures I am sure will come in handy for years to come and wood colors never go out of style.
Naturally Eclectic DSP, Love the colors in this paper.
I do like the Coffee Break DSP but I can use the stamps I have to make my own if and when I need it.
Glossy cardstock is fantastic and I am glad to see it back. I still have some but I am sure I will be adding more.
Very Vanilla Heavy weight, it's about time.
Accessories, honestly there isn't too much because I don't tend to use enough of them. I tend to go to pearls or rhinestones that are smaller and I color them with sharpies or alcohol markers if I need to. I have sequins from other companies but the Sequin assortment in iridescent is on the list. I found it interesting to see so much wonderful new ribbon. Personally I don't see many card makers using it as much as they use to so I am shying away from adding anything but the Copper Trim which looks super fun to play with. I love that the watercolor pencils are now in SU colors, but I'm on the fence with these because I tend to gravitate to using my ink and aqua painter to watercolor. I will be getting the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and the embossing paste, the new mini dimensional.
Tools, I pretty much have all of them, except the gift bag punch board, and since I can make bags with my score board, I'm not getting it.
Punches well, here is the dilemma, the daisy punch, I have the old retired sizzix daisies die. But I do like the Daisy Delight bundle. So that will wait. I am really trying to not buy punches anymore. They are heavy and take up a lot of space. Having just moved this past year, I realize that if I ever downsize then punches just might have to go.
Embossing Folders, funny I don't use them as much as I used to, so I haven't put any on my list.
Dies, Just the Happy Birthday and the ones in the bundles I want, At Home and Colorful Season.
