Default Bought my first product!!

I am a puter/papercrafter for years....do not stamp in the traditional way, use my puter to "stamp" and emboss. Anyways, am trying to get into making my own embellished cards so bought my first ever tool (besides a crop-a-dile and my trimmer)...a scallop circle punch. Now this may not be big news to you, but I have always just used what I have around here for tools LOL.....but, she also gave me a SU catalogue....I am scared now....so much I want LOL How do you control the spending?? Or do you? LOL

Control spending? Is there such a thing when it comes to stamping? LOL! Congrats on your first tool--you'll get a lot of use out of the Scallop Punch. But, now you need the 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" and 1" Circle punches...

You can use your computer in conjunction with your hand-made cards. I also feel having the proper tools makes the craft easier and more enjoyable. Somehow that mayo jar for a circle template just doesn't cut it nor does the back of the table knife make for a good scorer or creaser.
