Shopping Haul!


So much fun at Hobby Lobby today!

As I said before, we don't have one around here so we took the trip today and it was WELL worth it!  They had their name brand (The Paper Studio) on sale for 40% off and I took advantage of it!

I'm not really sure how I flipped this as it looked right before ... oh well! I picked up some stickers and at 40% off and ribbon at 50% off.  I also got the beaded strings for a project that I'm doing for the Christmas season, I know I know it's far away but I got these rolls for a steal, 1$ for 24 feet! So I had to snag them up because that's the cheapest I've seen them yet!

I got a new pair of scissors (I was in desperate need of some sharp ones!) needles and embrodary floss (to use with my new Sew Easy heads (See pic below) I also got some new brads, sticky gemstones and some trinkets (dogs and some to use for our upcoming casino trip!)

I got these great little guys on EBay as I saw them in Scrapbook Etc magazine and had to have them! So I snagged all 4 up for less then 16$ (including shipping!) Ok, Ok, now back to the Hobby Lobby Haul!

I got some more decorative brads, some paper tape, and a wax sealing kit.  I've been wanting to try this for a while and thought that at 40% off, why not?! Also pictured is some crackle accents and a corner rounder. I thought this corner rounder was going to cut differently then the CM one that I already have .... but it doesn't .... so I'm thinking that I'm going to put it aside (as I literally used it 1 time to test it) and save it for a give-away once my followers go up .... hmmmm now my brain is going!

Finally some new paper! I got some single sheets of their brand (The Paper Studio) as they caught my eye.  I also picked up a package of plain 12x12 cardstock because you can never have enough.  I also snagged up the Birthday extravaganza mat stack, also by The Paper Studio and it's super cute! Mom and I broke out the Gypsy on the way home and I started designing cards to use it right away! Finally is the Hobby Lobby's magazine that had some great layouts in it and for 1.99 it's a cheap way to get some new ideas when you feel like you've been in a funk.  The Bonus? My cousin Jennifer has 4 layouts featured in this issue! So CONGRATS to her!

My brain is going crazy right now thinking of all the great things that I can do with this haul of stuff! But I'm going to enjoy my evening out with great friends and family at the Irish Dinner tonight at our American Legion! I'll be sure to take some pictures as I need some up-to-dates to keep scrappin'!

Hope you enjoyed my haul ... I sure did! (although my husband is still on the fence! ha ha)

Happy Crafting!
