The only purchase I made this year is the Nestabilities die. Other than the die purchase, I really haven't shopped for anything new. I have way too many craft stuff already. Because my focus is to sell my cards, it's not really necessary to buy the latest or trendy tools and materials. I think when your audience is more to show your work to other crafters there is a tendency to want to buy the latest craft materials but if your audience are customers, most have no idea what the latest trends are. All they care about is purchasing a well crafted card using quality materials. That's my opinion anyway. . .
I still have a lot of seam bindings that I had dyed a while ago so I was trying to focus on using them.
I again used a Unity Stamps image . . .as in the birthday cake image, my first time to ink this one too!
Nothing much else to say about this card.
Another one of my focuses. . .I seem to have quite a few. . .is to use my Stampin Up Wheels. I have a bunch of wheels that I haven't used for years. I stored them in a container and had put them in the garage. They finally saw the light of day after I moved into my new place. I do have a lot of them and what a waste not to have used them so I'm going to start inking them up. The song notes image going across is a Stampin Up wheel image.
The rest of the images are by Unity Stamps. I was a Kit of the Month subscriber at one point and believe it or not, my package of rubber stamps would arrive at my doorstep and I would automatically throw them on a pile of rubber stamps. I had so many rubber stamps that I didn't even bother to open the package because I knew I didn't have the time to use them all. After awhile I began to realize how silly I was so I cancelled my subscription. I can't believe how gluttonous I was with buying craft stuff. I now find it so ridiculous and so wasteful. To relieve my guilt, I've stopped buying things and to actually start using what I already have.
Anyway, that's all for today! Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday and thank you for stopping by my blog!
