How fun! I can hardly wait for the set to get here! I love the curly loop as a border, and the eyelet border too -- look at your flowers! Woooo, the excitement is building!

Hi Christine, sorry to hear you've been having trouble. I just looked through the site and it appears only 2 colors of the 37 or so Gina K colored pads are out of stock, the rest are available. All the ones I used in this video are in stock as well if you like these. Now is the best time to buy exactly the colors you choose rather than a bundle because they are all 25% off with the code SAVE25 through December 31st, 2015. It is possible, though, certain colors may run out due to the sale the next two days, so if you plan to take advantage of that lower price, I'd encourage you not to wait. Hope this helps and thanks for writing!

I wish you would have stamp and ink pad bundles. I am new to you site and cannot afford to purchase per item to get a working collection..each time I try to put together a grouping you are out of stock several items and I end up not purchasing anything.
