storage for my paper projects...come take a look!

Oh dear...

Oh, post-CHA madness is upon me. I went shopping at Scrappy Chic. Here's what I got:



Booooo, Cosmo Cricket! No fair releasing all your new lines at ONCE! I showed remarkable restraint, seeing how many goodies I could've gotten. Only one crafting kit (Togetherness, which is my fave), some mini decks, a couple individual sheets, and some accessories (including new Tiny Type, which I use the heck out of).

Also:

Just a couple Jillibean goodies -- those dang letter stickers, which are so cute but hard to see, and the embroidery floss/baker's twine hybrid. Both of these come in several colors/patterns, in case you were wondering.

Allllsssso....

KaiserCraft has a couple new lines that are really cute, but I made a beeline for the stamps. These are really versatile for cards and pages, and I think I'll get lots of use out of them. Plus, the quality's really quite good for such inexpensive stamps.

Um, also...

My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found collection deserves some kind of award. All four series in the collection are just lovely. This is Portobello Road, and I really only grabbed a couple things -- there's way more available. The banner and "celebrate" have glitter on them...it's pretty, but now I leave a trail of glitter wherever I go, including on our bed, which is where I took these photos :) Those buttons and fibers are really pretty, no?

FINALLY...(oy, I'm off buying for awhile):


From the same collection, MORE STAMPS! Love the style, the versatility -- I'm really trying to stamp more on my layouts...don't know why it's so hard to cross over! -- and once again, remarkable quality for $6 sets. They aren't goofy and squishy like some of the other accessory stamps I've seen and tried to use. Yes, I check these things before I buy :)

Ok then, now it's time to play! I already broke into the Cosmo goodies for the layout in the post below...time to put it all into action now!

Besides playing, gotta get the last couple handouts ready for the start of classes tomorrow. Wish me luck!  What fun things are you up to today?  Have fun!

Love all your purchases - great eye candy! I haven't used the Cosmo Cricket I bought at Mega Meet yet. And that My MInd's Eye is calling my name!

Oh my, sooooo jealous!!!! First of all, to have such an awesome scrap store near you, and second, for all the goodies you got!!! Those last set of stamps look divine, and you know I love some Cosmo Cricket! Can't wait to see all the fun stuff you cook up with your new purchases!

Angela, you've completely lost it! JK. I'm SO jealous. So jealous. I love Cosmo Cricket but it's hard to find here. I'm drooling over that Kaisercraft Sheet Music stamp set and also the Mind's Eye Lost and Found collection. Wow, you better get stamping/crafting 'cause I can't wait to see you use all this stuff!

Emily sent me over to check out your buys, especially those Kaisercraft music stamps! Does that price tag REALLY say $2.99??? Sigh. Yep, we Canadians sometimes feel just a teeny bit shortchanged... :P I'll be back to see what you create!

Great stuff :) I have a feeling my next visit will be a BIG bill! I have to get that Lost and Found stuff. I also really liked some of the STMAPS at Kaiser... yes I did say stamps :) I really want the set that coordinates with the little tags. Did she have that in yet? Also on my list are the new stamps from Tim Holtz. Bought the ticket strip die already, now I need the coordinating stamps!
Thanks for sharing all your new stuff... even more excited to go shopping now!
