The new catalog uses a monochromatic theme for the pages that begin each new “chapter” of stamps, and the color theme for the All Natural section is neutrals. It really inspired me when I saw it, and although all the stamps used on that page were new I wanted to recreate that feeling. I looked through my stamps (never mind how many there are, I’m sure I’ll need new ones!!) and found the look I was seeking:
- Wood Grain, Elements of Style, Inspired by Life and Define Your Life stamp sets
- Naturals Ivory, River Rock, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake (Kraft) and Very Vanilla card stock
- Soft Suede, Sahara Sand and River Rock Classic ink pads
- Crop-a-dile, Jumbo Eyelet and Linen Thread
Did you see that little scrap of River Rock? I have a folder with just a few scraps that I was — you guessed it — hoarding jealously. Now I can use them up! As of July 1st, River Rock is back in the family. I’ll admit that this Color Renovation is taking a little bite out of my stamping budget, but if it means that colors like Baja Breeze and River Rock are back in the palette I’ll work with it. I can make a budget and stick with it. It’s not like I have to have everything all at once. Really. I don’t. Not at all.
Excuse me, I have to go. My hypnotist appointment is soon. I don’t need it all at once…I don’t need it all at once…I don’t need it all at once…
