New Spring Mix Stamp TV Kit.

Just received my set today. OMG It is huge. I cannot wait to get everything organized and start creating. I am new to Stamp TV and Gina K designs, but I am here to stay. Wonderful videos and tutorials. The shopping is also a plus, plus, plus! I also just ordered a Scor-Pal and CANNOT WAIT to receive this awesome tool. No more crooked or have-to-re-cut-cards problem. Thanks for all the hard work, creativity and candy with my order.

FANTASTIC!!! I purchased the 1/8th inch punch and special eyelets and I LOVE them! They are so easy to use and so simple! THANX Gina for this great technique. Here is my first card made using them. I wish the eyelets were not so hidden by the ribbon!

Prayers in the Spring
