This is another attempt at making good on my New Year's resolution to make simpler cards using more embellishments. I still think that may be an oxymoron, but hey, as long as I understand what I mean, that's all that counts, right? lol!
I've been seeing buttons all over the place lately, and had to try my hand at layering buttons tied with twine. Just for the record, I have no problem with "naked buttons", that is, buttons that aren't threaded, but the twine is pretty cute.
Have you heard the latest Stampin' UP! announcements? There are several, one being that we're going back to only one catalog a year. Also, there will be no more double-mounted sets, starting next catalog (except for alphabet sets.) Thank goodness! It was a good idea to save money, in theory, but not such a great idea in practice. They say they are exploring other ways to reduce the prices of large sets, but I have no idea what that means, or how it could be done. It will be interesting to see what they come up with. I'd really like to buy the Rose is a Rose set, but the $37.95 cost is daunting, so it would be great if SU could come up with a way to lower the price.
The last SU announcement, that I know of, is that the Easter sets in the upcoming Occasions mini will be available to customers on March 1. This gives us time to buy the stamps and actually make our projects in time for Easter!
Have a great weekend, and thanks for visiting! It makes my day to know you stopped by. :)
