Seriously. For someone whose life revolves around all things BEAN I should have “been” all over this paper. (groan!) No excuses. However, I’m doing my best to make up for it. These visual textures are fantastic! Don’t tell, but I’ve ordered a little more even though it’s on the Retiring List. This will make gorgeous Man Cards.
Today it’s not about a card, and it’s not about a man…although if there’s one in your life who makes you mad/sad/glad, you might want this:
Isn’t it yummy? Just the DSP over some Soft Suede cardstock with a couple of paper flowers and ribbons on the top.
Gotta have those Antique Brads…which are NOT retiring, thank you very much! Neither is that splendid First Editions Newsprint Designer Series paper.
Speaking of Retiring, if you haven’t looked – Get Thee to the LIST! I’ve heard a lot of groans about how long it is (12 pages, please and thank you!) and my 2 cents worth is that it is all good. Yes, some wonderful stamps and accessories are retiring. So if you really love them, buy them and keep them! In all honesty, don’t we usually hold onto too much stuff? (You know who you are – yes, I’m speaking to you!) It gets a little shabby and outdated but we have this emotional investment that keeps us from letting go. A Retiring List this long means only one thing: GOOD STUFF IS ON ITS WAY. No complaints from me.
If the Retiring Accessories and Stamps lists aren’t enough to get you hot and bothered, consider that the Occasions Mini Catalog will retire in 4 short days. Mixed Bunch. Blossom Punch. You’re My Type. Those dorky gnomes. The list goes on and on. Add the Summer Smooches sneak peek and it’s enough to make a woman pull out her hair. I do believe I’ll go have a cup of coffee.
