I love scrapbooking, card making basically the whole paper crafts industry, sometimes I have few thoughts to share on the topic. This where my occasional musings will land.
If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you probably already know this but, I have been shopping lately, a lot! I can’t help it, my local scrapbook store had a fantastic sale last weekend, including 50% off Graphic 45. Yes, I know, 50% off the new lines too, so I went a little crazy! In addition, I added to my Nuvo Collections of ”Pure Sheen” (fine glitter) and Nuvo “Glimmer” (glitter paste in a jar). To my defense though I am still replenishing from when my little one decided to decorate the floor with my entire glitter and embossing stash!
At the same time, Blisy.com has amazing sales going on this month! Their stamping sale last week was amazing with things up to 80% off. I challenged myself to look at things that were under $7.00. I am not a big stamper or embosser, but I am working on it. I thought by limiting myself I wouldn’t have the selection so I would be safe. WRONG! I ended up with 14 items from embossing folders to mini distress inks to stamps sets, including shipping around $30.00. Here is a sampling:
I was surprised by how much I loved the Frayed Burlap color, that is going look great on beach themes and all my guy layouts! The brick embossing folder is perfect for some Christmas projects I was thinking of adding a chimney! Time Holtz nailed the brick color perfectly!
Then if you saw yesterday’s post on the hot cocoa card, then you know my monthly stamp set came in. I guess I am having a little bit of an early Christmas, now if only I could get the new Silhouette Cameo 3 for under $10.00 then there would be some celebrating!
I think what kicked this whole thing off was some great deals on Peachy Cheap.com daily doorbuster quality deals. Now they are doing one for planners but since it can be used for cardmaking or scrapbooking it is like getting two deal a day!
Finally, if you ever want more of a collection that is older or maybe you are like me and only find bits and pieces when it is too late. The first place I look is Scrapbooking-for-Less.com. I filled in “Life in Color” by Simple Stories. I find past collections at great deals including Simple Stories, Graphic 45, Echo Park, Carta Bella, Bella Blvd to name a few!
Anyway, I hope you are able to pick up some things off your wish list to finish up your Autumn and Holiday projects! Know this is a safe place to share, no judgment! If you have a great place to share, please tell about it in comments!
…Until next time
