Finding Motivation (otherwise known as I love new supplies!)

On Wednesday I went to lunch with Karen (if you visited my blog before you know one of my favorite people and best friends is the awesome Karen Burniston, she makes the most awesome pop up dies!). We went to lunch, hit Archiver’s, and I bought myself some motivation.

There’s nothing like new supplies to light a fire under you. I bought specifically for a project and designed it in my head as I shopped. I actually pulled out a piece of note paper while at Archiver’s and sketched out half an idea.



New cardstock, some patterned paper from Teresa Collins (love the chevron and the pop of red), and a new stamp set from Paper Smooches called Warm Hearts (it’s so freaking cute I can’t stand it!).

It was just the motivation I needed to because yesterday I created a project! I’m pretty darn happy with how it turned out too (I’ll share it at the beginning of next week). I think I might need to go buy myself some more motivation again. ;-)

I used some dies from Karen’s Snippits line (they’re so fun!) and I also used the Magnetic Platform for the first time. The Magnetic Platform is awesome. AWESOME. If you use wafer thin dies, I HIGHLY recommend it. Seriously. You will love it. I promise.

I agree, shopping for supplies is the best motivation!! I've been doing most of my shopping online now + I half forget what I ordered when it gets here which even adds to the fun! Can't wait to see what you created :)
