I've Finally Gotten Over Christmas!

Now that Christmas has come and gone, I will move on! I had purchased a couple of new sets from the Occassions Mini Catalog. There are many exciting things in this new catalog. And, there are many reasons to be excited about this new catalog.
The first thing, in the new catalog is the offering of clear mount stamp sets. I was not too excited about this option. Then I considered some things. They are cheaper than the wood mount stamps, so that has to be a good thing! They store more compactly than the wood mount stamps, yes another good thing! So, then I thought I had better order a couple of sets. I got them and I think I might like them!
My largest resistance to clear mount stamps is that I felt like they wouldn't be as accessible as my wood mount stamps. When I want to stamp, I want to pick a stamp and use it. Not fumble around trying to find the right block etc. But, after receiving my two sets, I think that I might be able to adjust!
This set is called Vintage Vogue. I enjoy using it and think that I will get lots of use out of it! I used just Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip. And, I added some of the new satin ribbon for accent!
The ribbon is something else for me to get excited about! I can't wait to get my hands on some of the other colors!
Thanks for stopping by!
