My New Year’s Resolution

It’s not a January 1 New Year’s resolution; it’s a resolution for the new Stampin’ Up! year.  And since they’ve changed some things, the new year doesn’t start until October 1, so I have some time to work up to it.  But here’s the resolution:

“I will not buy every designer series paper in the catalog, hoard it until the retiring list comes out, and then try to use it all up in one month.”

I do this every year, and I promise myself I won’t do it the next year.  And, yet, I do.  (I do the same with ribbon, but that’s another issue.)

Before we left for vacation, I worked feverishly to finish some projects that will be due while we’re gone.  Some won’t be posted until June, so I was able to use new products (yay!!).  But one is due Sunday, and I don’t want to taunt you with too many sneak peeks of things you can’t purchase yet (unless, of course, you’re a demonstrator).  So I decided to use some of the retiring Flower Pot designer series paper.

Sheltering Tree, Stampin' Up!


I was trying to pull in other retiring products as well – like Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding ink and card stock.  And the Flower Pot paper seemed perfect for a background for the Sheltering Tree images.  I added a little Petite Petals flower, punched with the coordinating Petite Petals punch over the Whisper White satin ribbon.

In case you’re wondering, I’m not using this for the challenge after all.  I brought a craft bag with me and made a card last night with a new (to me) stamp set.  When I photographed it this morning, I realized it fit the challenge a little better than this one – so you’ll see it Sunday.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy!  Have a wonderful day.
