New purchases.

So today has been bright and sunny. So warm in fact I was able to walk around Wells without a coat on. The market was full and there was loads of interesting stuff to see. I received some more happy post today but I had paid for that.
I usually purchase my scrapbooking supplies from my local crop or else Sarah's Cards or Merly Impressions. Primarily because their service is always exceptional and value for money, and also they seem to have alot of the new CHA products to try. So here is what I ordered..................

From Sarah's Cards I bought some music patterned paper and this camera paper which I thought I could cut into camera pieces to make it go further.

 ...............the music paper is My Mind's Eye ''Follow your heart'' and the cameras is called This and that Instamatic by Echo Park Paper.

I also got these tags to try by Pebbles


 and this fab Amy Tangerine day book which has pages like this...............

plus this cute stamp set also by Amy Tangerine which I have been after for a while............
I also bought a new Herma applicator as this is my fave adhesive and I can buy the refills at crop.

From Merly Impressions I bought this flatpacked wall unit which I will decorate and show at a later date. I also bought some Alpha stickers which are so minute u need a spy glass to see them.


Finally I managed to get myself this month's copy of Making which I love and also got this mini alphabet stamp set from my local charity shop for £2.25................bargain.

What have you treated yourself to lately?


  1. Fab purchases Jo, cant wait to see the wall unit once finished, havent seen one of those before.

    I was treated to a 2nd hand big shot express at a rather bargainous price so of course I had to get a set of nesties & some embossing folders ... I do so love the embossing folders.

  2. Wow - that's a haul and a half. Some beautiful stuff to really get your creative juices flowing. Have fun x

  3. Ooh lots of lovely goodies there Jo:o) I'm a big fan of Making, much prefer it to Mollie Makes. My copy landed on the mat this morning and I'll be enjoying it later, once the children are in bed.

  4. Ooo.. lovely stash!! I like the music and camera papers and also the ready-to-decorate project - that will be fab, I'm sure, can't wait to see it!
    I had a nice box in the post today too. I normally buy from Sarah's Cards or sometimes Papermaze and That's Crafty. But I found a new shop called "CuddlyBuddlyCrafts", who had some great punches for sale (thanks K!), along with several other items that I had wanted for a while. So today I have a lovely new edging punch, a roll of thing magnetic tape (yay!), some interesting jute cord and some pallet knives and a nice new brush for my bookbinding glue. Can't wait to try out the punch - it's a hearts design that I think will be lovely for wedding books!
    Enjoy your goodies and do show us what you use them for! XX
