Haulin it!! Michael’s haul

Hello! I went in for one thing in Michael’s today and did not carry a basket because I went in for one thing. You know what happened…new products happened…pretty products happened and if that wasn’t enough they were on sale for 40% off!! My defenses were no match for this foe and so I caved.

Meet the new Color Splash line by Recollections:

Who could resist these watercolor crayons? And I thought I would give their new ombre pads a shot since they were half the price of the Hero Arts.

march2016bNext was this super cute 6×6 pad of paper with resist designs already on them so all you have to do is use the watercolor with them to make them pop! I would have grabbed two but I had enough in my hands.  Then this really cute stamp set I intend on using on my cards (great sentiments) and in my planner.  The come with a cute stencil of trees.

march2016cI can totally see me using this stencil.

The next new product line by Recollections is called Boho/Bohemien:

march2016dAnother cute 6×6 pad with the most amazing vibrant colors with dabbles of gold foil accents. What girl could resist?

march2016eAnd the other pad had laser cut patterns that would be great on a card.

march2016fOh so pretty. I will be testing out the watercolor crayons tomorrow and the ombre ink pads. I will share my thoughts in case you are on the fence.

Happy crafting!


Craft Haul on Etsy: Sequins from Calypso Cards


Hello Everyone! I have been back in bits and pieces. The boys officially started school today so that means I am back to work. I had decided to take the summer off and try to play a bit with the boys.  So my Etsy store is pretty low on crafty goodies.

As you may or may not know I am very into sequins lately. No, not on bell-bottom pants or my clothes but on my craft projects. So I have been on the hunt for more sequins and I came across a fellow Esty shop called, “Calypso Cards” and found some this shop had some great colors. I ordered these three different packs. The purple hues pack is called ‘Viola’ and oh my goodness, I can’t wait to use it. I love them and there is lot in the package. The orange, red, green yellow pack is called ‘Citrus’ and I think they will work for a lot of fall projects.  The pink, baby blue, lime green etc. package is called ‘Baby’ and I think it could be use for many other purposes too.

One of the things I love about shopping on Etsy is the connection. She sent me a handwritten note and a free gift with my purchase.  So if you have a chance, do check out the shop. I hope she continues to restock these beauties because I am sure to go back for more.

Have a blessed day!



Goodies on Clearance at Michaels


Hello! Happy Monday! I can’t believe I have been so bad about posting lately. Well I am back from a quick stop at Michael’s and was floored by the goodies on clearance.

All of Heidi Swapp products were on clearance and then when I got to the register they took additional money off. You got to love that! Had I known you know I would of swooped up more into my basket.  The colors of this collection make me think of Easter and I found some Washi tape and wood embellies by Recollections that coordinate perfectly. Even the wooden box that stores the wood embellies is a pretty Easter color.

I have been wanting this stamp set for Project Life for a while so I am so thrilled it came up on sale.  The great thing is that it comes with a coordinating die so that you can cut them out perfectly.  I just love it. Promise to share when I use it.

I am happy to be back and will be back all this week with more!

Have a blessed day!


Latest mini haul at Joann’s

Goodies from my local scrap store.

Goodies from my local scrap store.

Hello! Hope you all had a great weekend. We had another storm this weekend that brought us a bunch of snow. However the temps soared a bit and most of it is melted and by the end of today which is a gray wet day with lots of rain on the way, I suspect all the peeks of white will vanish.

So yesterday I had to do a little after the storm craft shopping.  Ok, truth be told, I went into the store with the intentions of buying pop dots and a few new journaling pens.  Somehow, I went down a different aisle and was pleasantly surprised to see that Joann’s now carries some Basic Grey products.

This new line has a boy and a girl-themed products. So I bought the “Hey Boy” and the “Hey Girl!” 6×6 paper pads and some adorable flags.  I stopped there because as mentioned before, this was not my intention when entering the store. Therefor some credit is due for my strength.

I am off now to go think of ways to use my new goodies.

Have a blessed day!
