Do You Have Paper Crafting Contraband?

stampin up contrabandNot the kind of contraband you get pulled over for.  Geez, what kind of hoodlum do you think I am?

In the Stampin’ UP! world we refer to any products that are NOT Stampin’ UP! as contraband.  Kind of funny right?

This is the only kind of contraband that I have ever, or will ever have in my house.  Just so we are clear. LOL.  Remember, I am ruler follower.  I can’t help but be a goodie two shoes.

This is the second time in two weeks I have made references to drugs (see here).  I am not sure I am super comfortable with that.

Simon Says Stamp! is one of my favorite contraband companies.  I love their stuff.  My friend Katina gave me this stamp set with the matching framelit. (Make sure you go to Katina’s blog and check out her stuff today)

I love these little turds.  They are so stinking cute.
