Scrap Shopping!!!

Dont you love it when you premit yourself to break the budget and go carzy scrap shopping??!!

I went to Penrith Superstore today as I knew there were some sales on! And whilst I was in Penrith I decided to visit
Fred the Needle. That shop is awesome!! I think they have a few different things to all the other scrap shops about.. oh, and they stock Hambly products (which no one else seems to have much of!!)! I loved that little store! If you're into sewing you'll LOVE it! They have heaps of gorgeous fabrics too (im sure Siany will go crazy in there when she visits!!) !!!

Here's what i bought:

  • 13 sheets of patterned paper and cardstock!
  • toy story stickers
  • thickers
  • cardstock letter stickers
  • 6 flowers
  • rhinestones @ $2!!
  • double sided tape
  • 7 gypsies cards which you write on!! love them!
  • large eyelets 20 for $2!! (hopefully to use for a mini book i will make in the future)
  • turn mounts
And my favourite buy...I've seen so many people use these on their Emliy Art Journal Challenges and i've always wanted one (in fact, i think i'll buy another one next time i visit fred the needle) and i found one!! Yay!!

Gotta go scrap now!!!!

Cool - I'm so glad you had fun!!! It sounds like a fantastic store (you had me at fabrics!) :) The 7 Gypsies stamps are awesome. You can't find them in a store anywhere near me (I had to order mine!) - you'll wonder how you lived without it! Have fun and can't wait to see what you make!
