OMG I cant belive it's been so long since my last post!! Don't know where the times gone. Not even done that much! lol. Well gutted the kitchen, which took two days, but thats about it.
Anyway, on to important things, STASH!!!! Thursday was my trip the the NEC, which I'd gone to hell and back to manage to get to but won't get into that now. lol. Was so worth it. Wasn;t as good as previous years for papers and little bits but there were loads of tools, dies and punches. Was dissapointed with the lack of pretty things to browse through but managed to get everything on my shopping list so was pleased with that. :)
So heres what I bought!! First stall I went to was a £1 stall. Some brill bargains on it! They did have these big chipboard clocks to alter. I'd never use them as clocks but the chipboard bits would make great templates I thought. Also stocked up on bling and DST. Managed to find the Martha stuwart punch I was after too. There were SO many stalls that had these and the prices varied widly! I got this pack for £19 but saw them as much as £24! Also got some pins which Im really into atm for £1 for 2 packs. :) Also got some alpha stickers, some little templates and chipbaord flowers. :) Oh, and a little leaf punch I've been after for a while. My TA friend Karen uses hers a lot and looks great so wanted one. :)

Black magic cardstock. Wanted some of this to try with my embossing. :) Its black but with colour underneath which shows if sanded. Will probably never use it now I've got it granted but there you go. lol.
Also got some glimmer mists, always wanted to try these but never have. Also a glue pen from the £1 stall, a bit acrilic block for stamps and some elastic for my braclet. My friend who recently died gave me a braclet for my birthday which Caitlin broke. :( Was gutted but Mark asked a guy at the show who said this is easy to use to fix it. :)

My dies!!!! Since I got my cuttlebug been really into die cutting and embossing. These were at the top of my shopping list and was happy to find a stall selling 3 for £30. so got 6. lol. Also got some pretty embossing folders, a tree, butterflies, vines and script writting I've been after for a while. :) Also found some little disney dies and a leaf and star. :) Now need to find a place to store all these!!

Finally magazines. :) Bought 4 for £5 from one stall then took out a sub for crafts beautiful. Wasn't too fussed about the sub but hubbys wanted a HUGE tote for a while for his warhammer armies. Saw one he liked which was £70! But if you took out a sub for £44 got the same one for free! lol. No brainer really.

So thats my stash for now! off chirstmas shopping tomorrow (the LAST of it) so bound to have a bit more by then. lol


  1. Well done Missus! i will be over soon to raid your stash lol


  2. Looks like you got a lovely haul.

    You will love the leaf punch, I just can't put flowers on my pages anymore without some leaves to go with them. (Remind me to bring my floral punchcraft tools in Feb and I will show you how to mould them to make them look more realistic)

    Fab dies - my collection keeps growing and yes a pain trying to find storage for them all.

    I sub to Crafts Beautiful - I like the range of crafts they include not just cardmaking and scrapbooking.
