Remember last week when I shared my 5 must-have card making supplies? (Read it here in case you missed it).
Well, this week I want to share a little wish list of 5 card making things I wish I had.
1. The new October Afternoon paper lines.
Mmmmm. I have a thing for October Afternoon and these new lines are just lovely. Vintage-y and pretty and perfect. If they show up at Archiver's, I am sure I will be snatching up one of those 8x8 paper pads.
2. Up, Up, & Away stamp set and dies by Papertrey Inc.
I have had my eye on this set for months. I have a thing for hot air balloons and for stamps with matching dies. So I am not joking when I say I think about ordering this set at least once a week. One week I had the money for it, went to order it, and they were sold out of the hot air balloon die. So I didn't order any of it. So sad. Next time I have the extra cash...
3. Epic Letterpress machine.
Well, I am actually kind of torn on this one. Remember a few months back when all the big bloggers got sent a free machine to review (totes jeals over here!)? Most of the reviews were good but said that it took some practice and could get messy, etc., etc. So I am thinking if it involves a big time investment to use I will pass on it. Then I see some cuu-ute projects and I am back into wanting it. I have it on my perpetually changing Christmas/Birthday possibility list so we'll see if it sticks around.
Another item of debate. At the time I have about 15 Copic markers, which in Copic world is nothing. They can add a lot to stamped images and can be so beautiful when done right. My debate here is the cost/value relationship. Oh yes I am getting all business degree on you. If I were to invest in these, let's say $100, that is a LOT of cards to make before you start saving money versus buying cute cards at the store. Yes, I know card making isn't all about saving money (I think I would need to make about 1,000 cards to recover some of my craft expenses), but sometimes it is. Also, there is the time investment thing again. You have to really practice and I already have too many other hobbies that need some practice. I just totally analyzed the heck out of buying some markers, but it's a lot of money, so there.
5. Lawn Fawn Teeny Tiny backgrounds stamp set.
Ack! Those little hearts! I even kind of hate hearts. Lately I have been finding myself liking them more and more and even using them in crafting. What is happening to me?! I guess motherhood is softening my cold heart-hating heart. Or these are just cute. Yeah, let's go with that one. (These were on my wishlist when I wrote this post and now they are on their way to my house. I couldn't resist!)
What are some things on your wish list? Leave a link in the comments so we can all take a look/enable one another.
