It seems like whenver a new catalog or mini comes out I am so strong, logical and very careful about what I order. Well, at least for the first order. You know at first I am that person who says I am not getting that because it is too similar, too limited in use, too whatever. Fast forward a few weeks and yup, I have totally caved. I do think that now I have ordered almost everything that was on my I "want it" list from the Holiday Catalog. Wait, I do reserve the right to change my mind cause you know there are still a few things that I don't have.
First up are the Window Frames Framelits. I cannot even really explain why I resisted. Here's the first thing I made with the Window Frames Framelits.
I guess I will confess that it is also useless to resist the Flowering Flourishes stamp set as well as the Window Frames Framelits. The card measures 4-1/4" x 5" so it will still fit in the standard A-2 envelope. This is a quick card and a fun change from the standard card.
Stamps: Flowering Flourishes, Tiny Tags
Ink: Midnight Muse, Raspberry Ripple
Paper: Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla, In Color (2012-2014) DSP Stack
Punches: Jewelry Tag, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack
Big Shot: Window Frames Framelits, Beautiful Wings Embosslits
Ribbon: 3/8" Raspberry Ripple Stitched Satin ( you can get this free with a $40 purchase)
I store my Framelits in the Clear Mount stamp cases. The Window Frames Frameltis are a little too big to fit in the case. I didn't want to change how I stored them so here is what I came up with.
I mounted them on the outside of the case with LOTS of Magnet strips. I was a little dubious about this so I shook the cases and dropped them and the framelits stayed in place. I can also store more framelits inside of the case. If I had wall space I probably would have found a way to mount them but wall space is scarce and cabinet doors non existent in my little craft room.
So, what products have you found to be useless to resist? I will be sharing more of what arrived in my latest box of goodies. If you have decided it is useless to resist something you can go to my Stampin' Up! online store and order it. Don't worry about caving in and ordering, you are in good company!
