New Stash!!

Morning Dear Reader, i thought today i would share with you the bits and pieces that i have brought over January.  January was a good month for stash buying as i was lucky to have some Christmas money.

So starting at the top i brought some Spectrum Noir Pencils and some blending fluid on the recommendation of my friend Jeanne so that i could colour and blend with paper stumps.
Some Lawn Fawn Elephant stamps; some bits from when Mr. C and i went out on his birthday – some pencils from Blott that were in the sale for 10p! a couple of postcards including a Charles Darwin one by Quentin Blake and some bull dog clips from Tiger. Some Jelly Bean Alphabet stickers and the Becky Higgins Playful core kit from Hey Little Magpie, i had brought a sample of playful from them before and loved it so much that i brought the full kit.  Its a very happy, colourful kit and it works well with how i want our albums to feel.

Lots of Lawn Fawn stamp sets with their matching dies, and some must have basics from Stampin’ Up! as i wanted to have extras of some must have tools so that i could have them in my scrap bag as well as on my desk; a new pair of snips, a pokey tool, a bone, and a few clear blocks as well as some white cardstock and my favourite crumb cake card stock.

So i am off to play ;) i have resolved to only buy bits if i am going to use it, and not to but more stamps until the ones i have have been shown some ink and love.  and…..so far I've stuck to it :)

Until Next time



  1. I hope you enjoy all your newest goodies!!! Lawn Fawn really makes the cutest stamps that are oh-so-fun to color in!! :D

    1. i LOVE my new goodies Jeanne so much so that i went and brought some more yesterday! :D

  2. Ah yes - i Have the same pledge going. Nothing unless I absolutely need it or it's an essential like glues or tape. Sooooo.... I fill my Amazon wishlist up with yummies and when people ask me what I want for birthday/Christmas I send them a link. Who? What? Cheat? Moi?

    I have been very lucky in that I just had my birthday at the weekend and of course Christmas has just been so my stash addiction was nicely satisfied. Now I have to sit on my hands for a while! You are tempting me with that PL set - I may have to go look - I want to start PL, I think it would ease me into scrapbooking better than 12x12 did and I do love nicely illustrated stuff... which that looks like it might be... Hmmm.

    1. nope definitely not cheating at all as its not you spending its them ;)
      i love this PL set its so lovely and happy looking, plus with PL you can get through them nice and quickly x
