A little Note – Butterfly Gala

I just can’t get enough of the Butterfly Gala stamp set, the ideas keep flowing and I just have to share with you another project idea.  I do I want to share with you a strategy of mine of how I decide which stamp sets to purchase.

As you know the catalogue 212 pages so how do I decide which stamp set to purchase and why.  It’s a little thing I like to call “5 Before You Buy”
