New James!

Howdy folks,

I know, I know... I am awol for a bit, then suddenly two posts in one day! lol.

But I *had* to come and share my make with one of the brand new James the Bear stamps I picked up at the LOTV shop this morning. As a matter of fact, yes I did get one of each of the new James ones... And if that surprises you, you're obviously new to my blog! lol.
I also picked up some more mini ring binders for my stamps, as I've far more than fit in the ones I have!

So, after I got back, I set to decorating a binder for my animal stamps, with one of my new purchases on the front. I decided to go with the adorable "James laptop"...

And here he is:

Isn't he the second most adorable bear ever? (The most adorable being my baby bear, who escorted me to the shop this morning, but elected to wait in the car with his dad, lol)

And now I'd love to go make stuff with the rest, but I have stuff that unfortunately needs to get done first!

Oh, and I also picked up an extra James stamp, which I will be offering up as part of a candy for my birthday next month! Watch this space!

Have the very best of days!

Well, it helps that I only live 10 minutes away!
And I think the word is "impatient", rather than quick, lol. x

This really added a lovely creative personal touch to the binder.

This is such an adorable James image Sammy, the Kraft card stock and papers are perfect. Lucky you being able to visit the shop - if only I lived a little closer, I'll just have to wait and order online.

Lucky you with all those new stamps to play with!
If I lived that close to the shop I think I would pretty much live in it! I can see myself putting in an order very soon online and am going to have a hard time deciding which ones to get!

Your little binder looks awesome and is such a fab way to store the stamps :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx

I think you rock to get immediate use from your new schtuff instead of putting it away and then finding it as NBUS months later. Of course, who could NOT use this adorable stamp right away?! Using him and all the other touches to decorate your binder (organization mwah!) is nothing short of genius, Sammy!! Enjoy your week! Hugs, Darnell
