Amid all the excitement over the new SU sets I decided to pull out a tried & true set, Heartfelt Thanks. I used river rock ribbon even though there is no river rock card stock. I am still hoarding my river rock paper and using it sparingly.

The crimper was one of the first tools I purchased when I started making cards. I thought it was the coolest! I would put crimped paper on all my cards.

Soon after I purchased my crimper, one of my friends & her kids came to my house for a Valentine Day Party. While she was in my basement she spotted my crimper!! She just
happened to have a stash of paper in her van which she promptly crimped. And she used every single piece of that crimped paper-of course now she has her own crimper!!!
Stamps: Heartfelt Thanks, SU sentiment
Paper: kraft, not quite navy, close to cocoa, hostess prints pack
Ink: close to cocoa, not quite navy
Accessories: river rock ribbon, crimper, hodgepodge hardware,

I think the crimper is a staple for any paper crafts artist! I bought mine very early on as well... :)
