Something New in '22 - April

I have a lot of stamps - from a lot of companies. When my husband walks into my Play Room, he sometimes looks around and suggests that I'm single-handedly trying to keep the stamping companies in business. Nah! I know many of you are helping that cause, too. 

So why would I start a new series this year that requires me to buy new stamps??? Because it's going to be fun.

Something New in '22

The concept is to find a new (to me) stamp company each month, to purchase a stamp/set and create a card. Once a month. Twelve companies. Twelve stamp sets. Doesn't that sound fun?!?!?!?! (I see your head nodding in agreement.)

This month's company is Maker Forte, which I discovered not that long ago and have actually enjoyed some of their virtual classes already.

I do have a disclaimer though. Sheesh! I hate that I messed up this way... but this is actually the second card I've made with a Maker Forte stamp. Earlier this month, I forgot that I was using Maker Forte as my Something New in '22 card, and I used a splatter stamp of theirs on another card - if you're curious, you can see it HERE. I bought that splatter stamp at the same time I bought the stamp for this series - you know if you're going to make a purchase, you might as well add more items to your cart. LOL!

Mess-ups happen. Onward it is...

This is so cute Jeanette. I stopped by their shop with your help.I will be going back. 12 in 12 months and a new stamp each month. Sounds like a good plan to me.
