Default Have You Ever?

Not really paid much attention to a stamp set, and then suddenly it catches your eye? I have never paid attention to nor really cared for Greenhouse Garden. Then this morning I was surfing around and saw a card done on someone's blog (I apologize, I don't remember who's..I was randomly surfing) and wow! So I went to the Gallery...I'm SO getting this on my next order!!! Just wanted to know if that's ever happened to you and maybe share which set(s)? Happy New Year!!

Yep...I completely overlooked several sets such as Petal Prints and Eastern Blooms till I saw them used at my stamping group then I just had to have them. Thanks for enabling me with Greenhouse Garden...it's totally gorgeous..I can see why you fell in love with it. This is the first image in the gallery and I just went, "WOW!"

Yes, I've completely ignored or dismissed many, many SU! sets UNTIL I saw the French versions, and then it was love!!!

Yup.

It was months after guidelines by Papertrey came out that I noticed how awesome it was.

As far as SU it happens to me all the time. I'll get the catty and think I have it figured out then when I see people start using them I'm like, "Ohmyheck this set is the bomb" and I never knew. I actually have a new policy of not ordering for at least a few months because of this. I was ordering all the "wrong" stuff. haha. (I'm sure that last statement wasn't terribly popular with the SU demo set, sorry guys!)

Happens all the time. Also the reverse happens. I LOVE something and then when I look at the gallery and unimpressed with what has been done and since I am less creative than the average bear, look for a different set.

Fifth Avenue Floral was one I dismissed until my friend Kate bought it. I'm not good at coloring. Then I borrowed it and checked out the gallery and fell in love. There's lots of not coloring things to do with this outline stamp.
