I got my new catalog yesterday! I had looked at it on-line but that is not the same as holding it in your hands and studying each page! It is much smaller than our old catalog but still has lots of goodies inside!! The samples are great and I think the new in-colors are going to grow on me! I think the Raspberry Ripple reminds me a lot of one of my favorite retired In-Colors, Purely Pomegrante. The Midnight Muse is a darker Blue Bayou; Gumball Green is a brighter Wasabi. I don't have a reference to compare Primrose Petals or Summer Starburst to. You'll have to figure it out. I wasn't too sure about the Summer Starburst until I stamped it. It's a good yellow. It shows up when you stamp it - not too bright but not so light that you can't see it. I like the new pads too. I can see me replacing my old ones gradually. Guess Ashley will like that as I will be giving her my old pads!!
So, as I was looking through the catalog last night, I had my Wish List in hand making note of all the things I want. I do that each year. It is always fun at the end of the year to look back and see what I changed my mind about after seeing what other people do with the different products and stamps. If you want your own catalog, just let me know. They are a deal this year - $5!!
I didn't go crazy ordering sneak peek items this year. I just got the new In Color ink pads, paper and markers, one stamp set, Papaya Collage, and the Bitty Banners Framelits. I don't understand the name for this stamp set - Papaya Collage. If anyone can figure it out, please leave a comment!!
