paper addiction and a new sneak peek...
My name is Debi and I am a paper addict. I managed to stay clean, for 47 days but I once again fell off the wagon today and bought more. Designer paper is my drug of choice, card stock will do it for me as well but I don't get the same high. For a long time I was doing really well when my only sources were Stampin' Up! and my local big box craft stores. I won't let myself put in a SU order more then once a quarter and I would actually sometimes even use up it up and then my local stores for months and months had the same old tired designer paper that I had already bought. But the big stores got smart, they figured out how to get me, they email me coupons and put those giant stacks of designer paper on sale for $9.99 and they keep getting in NEW STUFF!!! What is a girl to do but buy more of it??? I walk in the store with my little coupon in hand, I'm going to buy something, just one something and it ISN'T GOING TO BE PAPER.... Or at least that is my intention, then I start to hear the whispers, "look at me, I'm pretty and I perfectly match your new card stock, you don't have anything like me". So I flip through a couple of them and I hear "come on you know you want me, you know you need me, buy me...." Then the next thing I know I am walking out of the store with a bag full of paper in my hand and my hubby is laughing his butt off at me. I am a sick woman. I need help but you know what? That paper was right because it does perfectly match my new card stock.
So what do you think about the new soon to be released Elzybell Art Stamps? Isn't she pretty? And she looks so nice with my new crack, er paper and card stock, don't ya think? If you like her make sure you pop in tomorrow to see more sneak peeks of the July releases.
What I used:

Cloud 9, Cocoa Mint designer paper
