I just can't afford to always get the great new stuff. Maybe that is the reason why I don't get rid of my discontinued stamps. You know, the ones they don't carry in the catalog anymore? I know, as a demonstrator I'm supposed to push *NEW* stuff, but, that just doesn't always work with a particular project I'd like to create. So, I reach for my retired stamps frequently. Sometimes it takes the combination of new and used sets to get the final piece I really want. Most stamp sets just don't come with a great combination of images and sayings. (The big advantage with the creative cling backing on TAC's real rubber stamps is the minimal amount of storage space which enables me to be able to keep such a huge inventory of personal stamps!)
Monday night we will be making some treat ideas for our little goblins.
Hmmm..... but I found such great ideas, I had a difficult time deciding which ones to do....
Should we do something new?
Or maybe this cute witch hat with a shrinky-dink spider charm? (a combination of current and retired stamps)
We could always stick with the tried and true favorites...
...a sour cream container (current stamp set)
...or maybe an M&M matchbook (current stamps)
...or a mini candy bar pull (current and retired)
...or a pixie stick pack (current and retired)
...or a candy corn envelope (new stamp, old EKSuccess punches)
We will be doing at least three of these on Monday, but which will they be?
See you at 7!
