Default IFB - Had to cave in!

Well I just order my IFB set. With 400+ gorgeous cards in the gallery -- how could I NOT get this set?
I definitely was not interested in this set when it first came out, but can't believe how it's taken off, and the wonderful creations that have come from it. Seems I heard a lot of others saying it wasn't their fave either. Someone is doing a good job of winning us over.

Does anyone else find it interesting to see each year which sets SU! really markets? I know SCS won me on this one though!

This site is full of secret SU employees (not demos) I think. Everytime I think I don't want a set or I don't like it, somebody here has to make samples that force me to buy it. I just bought IFB too and I never even gave it a second look in the catalog! And thanks to Lana I just had to have Just Jeans too. This place is addicting, and full of great ideas, but getting expensive.

In my opinion, SU! would do well to come here and hire the gals on this site to make the catty examples!!! I think that the cards and gifts made here are so much more inviting than those in the catty! I never even thought of owning In The Wild until I saw the gallery here! I now am the proud owner of In The Wild!! LOL I too want to get In Full Bloom but the pocket is not as deep right now as I would like it to be so only lifes real needs for me for a while! Oh well, one can dream!! LOL

i actually bought it cuz i liked the make n take i did at an upline meeting, and then used it a few times and never used it again. everything i make w/ it seems to turn out ugly!

i posted in the buy/sell/trade about selling it, but no one wants it!

I *really* want this set, but I have avoided it because I figure I have enough 'flower' sets. I think I'm going to have to give in and get it eventually. I just love it. I have liked it since I first saw it in the catty!

IFB is the best set ever from SU! IMHO

It is excellent for watercoloring which is my favorite technique!

Hope your enjoy the set!!

Whenever I first saw the new catty, IFB was NOT a set that was on my wish list. I'm not the type for flowery sets. But when I looked at all the cards that I put in "my favorites" in the gallery, I realized that most of them were from this set. I finally broke down and bought it and should have it in the next week or so. In the meantime, I'm borrowing my friend's set so I can CASE some of the cards in the gallery.

I have to agree...I didn't really like to watercolor until I got this set. I love using my aqua pen with it. It is defiantly on my top 5 list!

IFB is on my wish list!

What you are stating about IFB is how i felt about Spring Garden last year - it was an "eeehhhhh not really grabbing me set" in the catty alst year. My Demo was gaga over it and let me borrow it to play - WOW! I LOVE that set!

and IFB - another show stopper!

That is on my October list of "to buys" - September was Hol-Mini to give me time to get cards done and sent for christmas - as Late Oct and Nov are NUTSY in my house!!

Yep, I'm with you... I have all the same problems as everyone else, though. I struggle with how many is too many flower stamps! I love Watercolor Garden II, thanks to all your galleries, I LOVE Petal Prints, and now, add In full bloom. I figure I do need at least one more flower set, since my fanciful flowers is now retired... but when my wishlist is $1000 long, it's hard to justify another flower set! Oh well... down the road, I guess!

I felt the same way about IFB. It wasn't on my wish list either, I have too many flower sets as it is. But after looking at the gallery here I just have to have it. I am stamping at a friend's house tomorrow and I am going to use hers. I've already got 15 samples from the gallery I'm going to CASE! Thought I could also make a nice sampler while I was there. Thanks for all the inspiration ladies.

I loved it the minute I saw it!
Oh! Ladies, don't forget to get the companion wheel! That's a "must have" for sure!

Yeah my upline pointed it out to me when the catalogue first came out and it really didn't grab me...now I cannot put the darn thing away. I don't own a lot of the flower sets but am sure glad I bought this one!!!
