New Stash!

So I have some fun new stash! Some arrived care of my post man from Craft Obsessions yesterday to my husbands dislike as the post man knocked very loudly at 7.15 in the morning while he was still snoozing ha ha. The rest I acquired on a trip to Artbase today.

These are the new Paper Whimsies from Sassafras Lass to go with some of their paper I have, I am doing a cute page of the nieces riding their bikes. So loving the retro feel, my mother is probably asking herself where she went wrong as she swore off all things retro after they bought a house with a master bedroom done in Avocado Green and Gold. The kitchen boasted all Avocado Green appliances as well, I don't think she had ever been happier for the stove to break!
Some new Thickers and some puffy metallic alphas from Making Memories from their Just Chilling collection. I have terrible handwriting so alpha may be an addiction but a practical one for titling scrapbook pages.

The everything shot a break down of what I got:
Tim Holtz Gunge book- I had never been exposed to Grunge board before this and bought the book as I like the shape for a mini album, I am hooked it feels amazing almost like suede. It also has an oddly nice smell to it like suede and new paper.

Making Memories- Girl Just Chilling Puffy Alphas, Clear Journaling Stamp set, and 12x12 Audrey Scallop ledger(the base paper fro my riding bikes layout)
Hero Arts- Four Leaf design block stamp, I was Kristina use this a few weeks ago on a FF video and loved it and wanted to recreate something similar.
My Minds Eye- Bella Bella Bellezo 12x12 "Wild Blossom" paper and Daily Dose 24/7 cards "Roll Call" journaling spot.
Creative Imagination- I got two sheets one I can't find a label with the title it is ledger style again, really into the ledger thing. The other is 12x12 "Journal Meadow"
Sassafras Lass- 12x12 Vintage Yummy "Memories Lane" and Vintage Yummy Paper Whimsies(see above)
1 1/4 square punch
Mod Podge the best glue and sealer in the world I love this stuff!
Think it is about time to ink up my new stamp and make some cards as my poor card making supplies have been under used lately then maybe tomorrow onto some scrapping.
In totally unrelated news a while back our neighbour offered the use of his clothes line if we were so inclined to use it. I knocked on his door this afternoon to ask if the offer still stood and if the line would be free for a couple of hours, it was and now I am ripe with anticipation of sheets that have been dried by the sun and the wind, there really is nothing better!
I have also misplaced my Martha Stewart bone folder I brought back from the US. I think it has slipped under something as I have search all my drawers and boxes and container. Anyone who has one will know this is more than just a bone folder. I guess I need to start moving furniture.
