Yet more new stash...

Ok, so I have a serious stash buying problem... but come on, when you're on holiday in the US it's crazy not to buy as much as you can pack! Some of the prices over there are just insane, plus there are coupons to be had online which save you even more. I think if I lived over there I would spend more time shopping for stash then I do actually crafting! (whats that you say, I already seem to do that? hmm...!)

So here's some pics for you to feast your eyes on of my most recent haul:

A selection of paper pads, I love the designs on the MAMBI one, I think I'm going to find it veyr hard to use those ones!

Punches from MS and EK Success

Embossing folders

Nesties! These retail over there at about $26 per set which is about £16, so I made sure to use my 40% off coupons on those which brought the price down to about £9.50.  Also some sizzix dies.

Just a few stamps...

Some basics. I love the MS Bone folder which hasnt come out in the pic too well... its pink with darker pink swirls and gems...I just HAD to have it lol ;) The other exciting things in this pic are some Tim Holtz glass fragments, silver foil leaf ribbon, and Tsukineko shimmer mists, I've already used one of these and the colour and shimmer intensity I got is so much better than the Glimmer mists I already have.

Stickers and rub ons... just because! 
The Prismas were all on offer at 50% off so I took my opportunity to get a set. Never used them before but I've seen other people get beautiful results from them... I just need to learn how to use them myself now! lol :)

and I couldnt go all that way and not get some lovely beads to play with!
Now watch this space...!
