ETA: a little contest for JULY--what did you get?

Re: JULY ADD ONS--what did you get?

well ladies, i've made it a policy to never toot the horn of a product i don't own and love. all of my recommendations are scrapbook room tested, so i don't feel guilty at all telling you what to buy :) i know you'll love them all, and crystal, tumbled glass is a great blue. distress inks are just that, slightly distressed. you'll get a less solid look when you stamp with it. if you want solid, go for jenni bowlin inks.

i've not tried the chalk inks, i can't speak to them. but i think i will be ordering a couple next month...

That's great to know Em, thanks. I have a LOT of the distress inks, but find myself more drawn to the walnut stain the most. Probably because before CD, I didn't use stamps a ton. Black soot and the burlap one are probably my next faves. But when I stamp, I usually don't want it to be too noticeable, so maybe my others will get a better workout. I will have to get a few of the new colors and really challenge myself to use them. :) I'm so happy to have the wonderful reviews here, though!!

wow, I missed a lot of fun last night!
I am with Emily, the Pencil In add-on was wonderful. I am in love with those AC foam alphas. That font is amazing, perfect, perfect size for me. I used a whole sheet of the Jenni Bowlin quilted stickers. The add just the right touch, also they can be painted on with watercolor or acrylic.

The paper add-on is gorgeous. I used a lot of the Bsides this month. I still have soo many ideas!

I got the Take Note add on, the add on papers and the Embellishment Pack. I just love all those little bits and pieces...! :)

Holy smokes - this is a dangerous thread to read....after getting umm..all of the add-ons - I went back for inks, mist and the mask. So glad I have this sub! Love all the inspiration in the gallery - awesome design team :)

As long as you use it, I say it's OK to buy it. If you collect, I say no, no :)

I had to laugh at this Emily.

I had to return to work upon my divorce for about 3 1/2 years and I was definitely a collector then. I still wanted to do it and had good intentions, just no energy or time as I was commuting 3 hours each day. Now I definitely buy my fair share and I don't nearly get it all used...but I still feel good that I'm getting something done with even any part of it at times! LOL

I totally get the collecting Crystal, especially with all the gorgeous products we are offered! I was just getting over run with it a few years ago and realized I needed to stop or I might end up on an episode of Hoarders. ::) So my new rule has been to use what I love and get rid of everything else. It makes me happier anyway.

Marti, you'll love Pencil In, you're good at making neutrals pop :)

I have found more and more that I use mostly just my kit/add ons each month and very little of my stash, I need to do some purging of that really old stuff!

Emily and Christine, I am SO with you on needing to purge BADLY! I have old SEI from like 10 years ago still in my stash! When I took my last class, it was on double page layouts and I was digging out OLD stuff and everyone was so in awe of the lovely stuff I still have. I think I probably SHOULD be on Hoarders sometimes, Em! LOL I am the same way, though, I love to use my new stuff...but my old stuff really needs to go. I think I will start to sort some of it tonight as a matter of fact! ;) It makes me happy to purge sometimes!
