I am TRAPPED upstairs in my office working and I am not allowed to go downstairs.. CAN YOU BELIEVE? I don’t usually wanna go downstairs, but now that I CAN’T, I am miserable. They now poured the cement to level the floor and tomorrow the tiles with the grout are coming on.. but another restaurant night! (my little girl is ALL OVER THE PLACE).. LOL.. she actually sat at another table by herself tonight.. should I be offended???
Anyway, the point of this post is that I have been meaning to write about the paper I use for my “bella spirit” technique (good ole, artist quality odorless mineral spirits-dare ya to say that 10 times) but had to make sure I received enough to share with everyone. I found it! I am a lover of good quality beautiful smooth cardstock.. actually any paper at all…LOL just not the ones that crack and are rough etc.. you get the pic…
I thought about my business for a long time before I launched and I thought to myself self? (LOL–I know it’s getting old).. what exactly did I want to share with the public. Obviously my luscious stamps but I also did NOT want to sell what everyone else sells in terms of supplies, embellishments etc.. unless I LOVE them.. Honestly, it’s good and it’s bad… I really can’t sell stuff I don’t like?! I can’t create stamps I don’t like so of course I can’t cater to everyone (although I would love to!). So back to the planning stages.. I surfed a lot etc and said I won’t sell stuff that other people have yet another gizmo at .10 less than the other website. Of course price counts but I was always taught growing up that you get what you pay for.. so really if it costs a little more, it’ll pay off in the long run.. OMG can I digress a little more???? So you can see the paper here (as if a white sheet of paper will inspire you to no end-LMAO). How do I describe it? hmmm It is a beautiful sharp white and it has such a wonderful texture.. like a ‘creamy’ texture.. does that make sense? It works beautifully with prismacolors… and when you stamp on it … MWAH!(gather all your fingers into a point and kiss the tip and raise hand in the air.. kinda like an italian chef.. you get the image?)… just beautiful. Obviously I don’t use this for my actual card.. I use it just for the layers that I stamp so that a little bit can go a looong way. The basic white cardstock that I use for cards is an Index Smooth white…
I have such a headache, I dunno what I even wrote above.. but I am hoping it is understandable.. oh do I have a HAIR PRODUCT blurb to write about… I need HELP ladies.
love to all
