What’s In Tami’s Shopping Bag?
Maybe I’ll make this a regular feature here. In the name of interesting blogging and all. Haha.
I popped into my local scrapbook store yesterday on the way home from Scrooge callbacks (cross your fingers for Reece, he’s up for Tiny Tim!). Did I need anything? Nope. Like most of you, I could survive for years on the collection I’ve accumulated. But I had a few minutes and felt the need to see what was new. Turns out they were having a Halloween promotion and I pulled a 25% off discount out of the pumpkin head. Bonus! I was obviously meant to go shopping, and far be it from me to interfere with fate.
Here’s what I came home with:
Four sheets of adorable Sassafrass Lass double-sided paper with cool edges. Love this stuff. I have eleventy hundred ideas for it already.
Four sheets of Making Memories paper. The three Paperie sheets are double sided. The other one is diecut and I’m excited by the idea that whatever I put behind it will show through the holes. Coolio!
Two sheets of K & Co. “Swell Noel” retro-looking Christmas paper, and one sheet of K & Co. “Christmas Cheer” number paper. I have visions of some sort of Ali Edwards-esque advent thing happening with those numbers. Or maybe a mini album with a page for each day leading up to Christmas. Who knows. I just like those numbers.
One sheet of Luxe Designs “It’s All About Time” calendar paper. So excited to find this! I have been wanting to do a calendar page for a while, a la the Day by Day pages from Journal Revolution (p. 69 – 71 if you have the book). This paper is perfect, and it ties in great with my goal to live and record present moments more actively.
Two completely darling 6x6 American Crafts albums, and matching ribbon. Seriously, you would not believe what a steal these were. The albums were $2.50 each (before the discount), and hold 20 pages. Yep, you read that correctly. The ribbon was $1/spool. Crazy-fantastic bargains. Practically free. And hello? An orange polka dotted album! Might save that one for a summer project. Seriously, you can never have too many fun mini albums on hand.
Have you been shopping lately? What new (or new to you) stuff are you excited about? Or if you haven't been shopping, what scrappy goodies are on your wish list? Share some retail fun with me, and in honor of Halloween I’ll pick a random person to win a treat from my latest faves.
