I don’t have a card creation today but am sharing a craft haul that I recently purchased online.
Simon Says Stamp offered a 25% discount last month for Ranger products and that’s that the best chance for me to take more of the mini distress ink pads. I only have a few and if I say few, I can easily count them on the two hands 🙂 I used the ones I already owned in this Christmas Card and I love how they blend well for backgrounds.
So here’s what I got from Simon Says Stamp. You can click on the photos for a bigger view
Well I said the Ranger products were on Sale but I added two stamp sets in my order which I’m drooling about since I saw them. First is the cute BB Hog Heaven from My Favorite Things. How cute are those hogs? Color them with light pink and make a simple scene using the fence and flowers and it will look great 🙂 They are one of the cutest hog illustrations by far that I see in card making.
Another sweetie patootie is Clearly Besotted’s Trouble in a Tutu. It will be very cute for a girl’s card. I saw several card samples using them and it just makes me smile. Looks so fun 🙂
Both stamp sets comes with a coordinating dies but I’ll get them later when the next budget permits.
For my next haul, I got them this time from Butterfly Reflections Ink. Its my first time ordering from Vanessa and I’m so glad I did as it ships very fast.
A quick look on what I got. I order mini stamp sets from Altenew and one from Hero Arts.
I also ordered a stamp set from Wplus 9 called Get Well Gang and its coordinating die. I don’t have a get well stamp set and this will be a perfect set for that. I can also use them in non-get well card, say Missing you card and the top 2 images for Thinking of you card.
The fishes are from Avery Elle That Bites stamp set and coordinating die too. I saw some inspirational coloring using these stamps and all of them were so beautiful in every way.
I also got a small bottle of glitter embossing from Wow as I plan to do my Christmas cards with glitter. A little sparkle would be great right?
I do craft hauls once in a while and its great to get hold of such great products to play with. There are a lot of new products that were release these past weeks and again I wish I could have them all. However, I do keep a budget when buying supplies online and at often times I will let some time past before I buy. That will give me some thinking if that is something that I really need?
How about you fellow crafters, how do you plan or budget your crafting hobby? Let me know your thoughts.
