I haven't really been buying as much new scrapbooking stuff in the last few months as I normally would. The short version of the reasoning is that my stepfather was diagnosed with lymphoma a couple of months ago and since I still live at home (and we don't currently have health coverage), my money has been better spent elsewhere.
I gave in and splurged a little this past week though. First off, I bought the K&Co Transfers to Go that you see above from a nice lady at 2peas. She had used two rubons out of the stitches set, but since these come with a ton in each set, I couldn't pass them up for her price of $3.50 shipped for all four sets of them.
Today, I placed an order through Joann's via Amazon. I had a couple of Amazon gift cards that I earned on a couple of sites online. I've just had them stored in my Amazon account for about a month now, knowing I would end up spending them on stuff from Joann's, but I wanted to wait on some good deals. Here's what I bought:
Cropper Hopper 12x12 Vertical Paper Holder
I'm going vertical! I ordered five of these to get me started. I'm hoping that will be enough to at least take care of all my loose paper that isn't in stacks/pads. I'm super-excited about sorting all of my paper to put them in these (I know, I'm a nerd... you don't have to remind me :P). I'm also excited about making the tags to label them. :D
DCWV 12''x12'' The Summer Stack
I absolutely love the DCWV stacks. Especially the spring/summer/etc stacks that come with 180 sheets. I only started buying them earlier this year, but usually I see them at really good prices at Joann's.
Inkadinkado Clear Mini Stamps, Hop On Over
I bought these mostly to fill up the order (free shipping on Joann's orders over $35), but I've been wanting them for awhile now, due to the fact that I have both a great dane and a dachshund. They were just too cute to pass up.
I also bought caps for the ends of a dowel rod that I plan on putting through a shelf I bought at a yard sale ages ago for a better way to store my ribbon.
The total for my Joann's order was $37.19 after tax, but after applying my $30 in gift cards, I only had to pay $7.19 out of pocket. :D I'm thinking that's a pretty nice haul. ;)
Sorry for the random non-svg related post, but I had to brag somewhere and my boyfriend just doesn't seem to get excited over this kind of thing. :P
