I gotcha with that title, didn’t I?!!!
Yesterday morning I was talking to a customer and friend about her planned order. She was talking about needing things like Classic Stampin’ Pads and Window Sheets but said that she would rather purchase Designer Series Paper and the Pebble Enamel Shapes…Me too!!!
I call the essentials of card making “underwear”! I don’t get excited about purchasing underwear but I need it. It is so much more fun buying dresses, jean and shoes, am I right?!!! So, I refer to things such as glue, re-inker, envelopes, Stampin’ Dimensionals, trimmer blades, new scissors, and such as Card Making “Underwear”. When my granddaughter was three years old, she loved the movie, Polar Express, especially the part where the little boy just gets “stupid underwear” for Christmas! Before that Christmas, she would pick gifts up from under the tree, shake them, then shake her head saying, “Stupid underwears!” So, now when I need essentials, I just shake my head and say, “Order the stupid underwears!”
One way to making purchasing Card Making “Underwear” more bearable is to add a few of these items to your regular order. So, you are purchasing stamps, dies, pretty paper PLUS adhesive and envelopes! I have envelopes and Stampin’ Dimensionals on EVERY ORDER because I use them A LOT! There is one thing for sure about real underwear and Card Making “Underwear”, YOU DON’T WANT TO RUN OUT!!!
Let me know in the comments below how this idea works for you! I would also like to know what is on your Card Making “Underwear” list!
