OMG, Holly. My list of must haves for new stuff after it gets to the LSS is HUGE. It's so huge, I lost track of what I wanted first, or even what's all on my mental list to begin with. I had NO IDEA there were new Nesties. Well, obviously that makes sense, but sometimes ignorance is bliss (errr, in this case, ignorance is a larger bank balance). LOL!!!! Now I'm going to have to go look and see if there is a sneek peek of them somewhere.
I want the Sizzix embossing folder that goes with the Tattered Leaves die to put veins on the leaves, and I'm interested in the Brick Wall and Cobblestone decorative strips, though I don't know what I would do with them.
But there are five other pre-existing Sizzix dies I want (including Tattered Leaves), some of which have already been out for several years. I keep trying to talk myself out of wanting the Ticket Strip decorative strip, because I have a perfectly serviceable McGill ticket punch and a Tonic ticket-corner punch, but meanwhile it sticks around on my wish lists.
Mommasaid: I looked at Prima Craftsman after you mentioned it and I am shocked. I actually like it and I never like Prima cuz it's too girly/shabby chic for me since I usually scrap boys. Thanks for the heads up! And shamefully I must now add to my list: Jenni Bowlin embellishments and Lily Bee Persnickety especially stamps n embellies.
I KNOW! LOL! Okay, I can't lie; focusing on boys hasn't stopped me from buying loads of Prima flowers and bling. However, I've never been excited about their papers. THIS collection, however, I REALLY want to support (financially) because I want to encourage the Juggernaut to make more masculine things.
Thank you Prima! Now I can expand my horizons and try out some new styles. I'm so excited to see more interesting things for boys because it's upsetting sometimes to have such limited options that aren't either skewed too old/retro or cutsey. Loving the action words and trains in some of the embellishments!
I might be alone in this, but I find that most papers and patterns (even floral ones!) I can work out for my boy pages (I have 2 boys and a girl). They might hate me for it later, but I have no problem with big old flower clusters on my boys pages!!
SO excited! I ordered MME The Sweetest Thing last night and I can't wait for it to get here! (Next week hopefully since I didn't express ship)I already have some pages planned for it, and I think I'm going to try to use some of the flowery Honey line (pink & yellow) for my sonny bunny-- a la previous poster...We'll see how that goes, I have to learn how to expand my stylistic choices. You guys have inspired me, so thanks!
I want some simple stories, prima, and mme collections!! I want the fiskars new interchangeable dies (drooling over them!!) don't have a lot of punches and thought this would be a good place to start!! Washi organizer/dispenser this is a new want. Lol
My stash is 10 years old!! I just want everything!! What is the old stuff now is new to me and then you add all the new stuff............
