at least I will have in the next few days. Thanks to my stash emergency email to Caz, I managed to find not only the Momento Dye Ink in, but also the coveted Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. Thanks hun, you always come up with the goods!
In fact, I also got the Rich Cocoa Momento as well as the Tuxedo Black from them, Charmed Crafts. I can’t wait to try them out. The Palette Noir works quite well, but the only bugbear I have with it, is the fact that like most Palette ink pads it tends to be on the dry side. I’m a juicy kinda gal, if you know what I mean!
as I have imagined it in my fluffy brain – a scrummy Tim Holtz stamp file. I popped over to Scrapbook Sisters yesterday, and as it looked lonely on the shelf by itself I had to bring it down. They had lots more, but sold out really quickly.
The only tiny bit of disappointment is that it doesn’t have a handle on the spine, but truthfully most of the time that won’t matter one jot. It came with 5 of the stamp storage sheets inside, but a got an extra pack. As this particicular beauty is being used for my Toodles & Binks stamps, and no others will be allowed to creep in.
The way I justified it to myself was that I can’t tout the T&B wares around retail shops without something smart to show them off now can I?
I also picked up some lovely pearls, a cuttlebug embossing folder (disappointingly not the Swiss Dots one that I covet), some Bazzill Just the Edge Cardtock Strips in bright yellow, a small 7g’s tag book, and a large acrylic Tag Book book, oh and a Papercrafts mag from the States. I really just went looking for Momento ink, but you know what it’s like!
I shall have to order the Momento on line and also get myself that Swiss Dots embossing folders – for that I can blame Adele, she uses hers to such effect, that I want one.
I’ve been seeing a lot of stiching around again recently, and whilst I have a nice large sewing machine upstairs in the cupboard, that’s the problem, it’s large and heavy. Do I need one of the lil’ darlings for my birthday?
