Lookie what I got!

I had to go take movies back to Blockbuster yesterday (such a good excuse to go to Hobby Lobby across the street!) and wanted to go and find some felt. Well, I found some felt! Now I just need to find out if any of it will cut with my Cuttlebug dies! I think some pieces might be a little too thick. I'll just have to cut those out by hand.

I found some paper in HL but was proud of myself for the level of resistance I had with the paper. Putting me in an isle full of paper is like handing a beer to an alcoholic. It's soooooo hard not to want it! But, I made it through that store with only some felt and a few sheets of paper. Oh, and I bought a card pack and some stickers for my niece. Her birthday is this week and I wanted to send her a little gift. Before I packaged it up I also threw in some ribbon, brads, stamped images, and some scallop punches. I think she'll be happy!

Now, onto Target. It is becoming more difficult to not spend forever in their scrapbook isle! Look, look, pretty colors! {drool} Anyway, I got a $5 gift card the other day for buying batteries so I knew exactly where I wanted to use it. I ended up getting blue Primas because Jolee said blue was my favorite color. True, very true.

Next was JoAnn's. I finally found some clear sets that everyone was talking about!!! I got 6 different ones and a few of the ink pads. Word of Caution *DON"T GET THE LITTLE INK PADS* Waste of money with a capital W! Which means I probably send them to my nieces. {grin} Oh well, we live and we learn huh? I also got a few of the other regular $1 stamps, more felt, and glitter glue (they had no stickles). All in all, I spent less than $20.

So, here is my $20 card. {giggle}

  • JoAnn's clear $1 stamp sets
  • Stazon black ink, Certainly Celery ink
  • blue Primas
  • white brads
I think I have been on a super simple kick lately. I actually really like it though! I think I might keep it up for a while.

I wanted to show you an awesome tutorial from Jen Carter. I have the scallop punches but I'm even gonna try this one! Check it out! I really like the look!

Hope you all have a fantabulous day! It's rainy and yucky here but I'm gonna make the most of it!
