Polka Dot Bliss

Happy New Year Everyone! Hopefully you all had a great time ringing in the new year whether it was safely at home or out with friends and family. We stayed low key at home and made it till, it was a success!

My first post of the new year puts polka dots center stage...and, they should be! I had seen this stamp set on many blogs and just had to have it. Let's call it a gift to myself ;) It's an acrylic set and I wanted to try it out.

Although SU! doesn't carry acrylic stamps, they are introducing clear mount stamps in the new Occasions Mini Catalog starting Jan 5th. SU! will still sell the wood mount stamps, but these are a nice alternative. The stamps themselves are still rubber, but you will be able to mount them on clear blocks. This is especially useful for two-step stamping or trying to line up stamps in a particular spot as you can see through the block onto your paper. Not to mention, they are stored in a DVD style case, which saves on space in your craft room.

Some other highlights in the new mini: new style flat punches, yummy new satin ribbons, a larger pack of designer papers and some super cute stamp sets in both clear or wood mounts.
