I was very excited that my swatch set of stamps finally arrived so that I could start on my swatch book! Jennifer McGuire posted hers a few weeks ago and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to make one. I found the page protectors a couple of weeks ago at a local coin shop so those were ready to go. I only got a page of pinks/reds completed but I hope to get the entire book done next week. I will say, I was surprised that several of Stampin' Up!'s inks were so similar--I almost feel like my Real Red is way off from what it should be. I will look in the morning and see if there is any change once the ink has completely dried.
Make sure you check out Jennifer's blog for a bunch of additional downloads for other ink companies. I am really excited to say that after some questions and comments back and forth, I ended up having the opportunity to help her add some of these files--very exciting! Words of advice: say yes if Jennifer McGuire asks for your help with something. She is so sweet and generous to boot! You come across so many bloggers in this industry, but a few really stand out and she is one of them. Her work speaks for itself but what really impresses me is how important her blog readers are to her. They ask, she listens and tries to provide them the best resources...FOR FREE!!! Very cool.
