Stampin Up! Order - April 2011

I'm back.  And another TAX SEASON bites the dust...

Actually, it but the dust on April 17...but takes a while to get ya groove back.   I've been crafting, but just have not posted yet.  And I have oodles to post. 

Mr. Brown stopped by last night and this is wha the brought me.

I found that after I had unpacked the box.  Do you think she likes that brown packing paper?  

I like that brown packing paper, too!  And I have a project to share using brown packing paper...I'm so excited about it!  (looking at title of blog post...oh...OK...SU! order...right...let's see...)

This is what I unpacked out of the box.

Cardstock...replenishing my cardstock...I need to share my cardstock organization method!  I was able to get that task completed after tax season.  Pictures coming soon!   But for now...feast your eyes on the "fan"-fare paper collection.

I splurged on a stamp set.  Bring on the Cake was a splurge from the Occassions Mini that ended April 30.  Splurge, indeed, as the set is contained in TWO clear stamp cases.  I needed a birthday sentiment set.  And the good news, too, is that this set carried over to the BIG catalog that's coming out in July 2011.

For my hostess set, I chose Birthday Bakery for yet more birthday images & sentiments. 

I needed a new adhesive old one...doesn't have any cornerrs!  Oops...told on myself!  LOL  The adhesive remover I currently have, I purchased in the Buy/Sell/Trade forum at SplitCoastStampers when I first started stamping.  And while I don't use Tombow Mono Multi ALL the time, I do like it and it made a nice filler.  The thing about Tombow...a little dab will do ya and it's repositionable up to a point.  Love that!

Then I needed glue dots...I ran out!  OH BOY!  I ran out in the midst of a project that I need to share!  Gotta finish it first...I needed to fill out out my marker & stamp pads.  A Sahara Sand stamp pad, a Basic Gray and a Sahara Sand Stampin Write marker complete my collection. 

Add one more 8 1/2 x 11 paper holder and a free 2010-2011 SU! catty...that's all folks! 

Now, to go put my new purchases in their homes.  What crafting supplies / items have you purchased lately?

Have a moo'valous day! 


  1. Wow, wonderful to see you posting again! I LOVE glue dots too and stock up on them when I order. I bought that big birthday sentiment set too and love it! And Tombo is the only glue I use. I get it a lot cheaper through another site and stock up when I order!! It does go a LONG ways.

  2. brown packing paper? I like it too! I use it to envelop the book :)

  3. Waiting for the next peek at your house of purchased items...

  4. Ooooo, isn't it lovely to get NEW things! So exciting! Can't wait to see what you make with them!

    Recently, I bought some Practicing Creativity stamp sets that have hot air balloons and banners (lovin' all these balloon and banners etc. that are all the rage). I have my eye on getting the SU set that has the old ship and compass etc (can't think of the name at the moment) but it would fab for all the masculine cards I need to do.
