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.

Other Paper
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.

Happy Stampin'

  1. I did purchase the In-Colors Lemon-Lime Twist Fresh Fig, and Berry Burst. I usually just buy the markers, but the colors this year really spoke to me. I also try not to buy too much paper, but got I broke down and got 2 packs of Eclectic and one of Delightful Daisy and the matching cardstock. I am part of a small monthly cardmaking group, and will be using the new supplies to make cards all year. I hope you get everything soon. I can't wait for the Holiday Catalog to come out.
