New Goodies!


Check out my haul at the stamp show I went to last weekend! WOW, is all I can say! I had such a fun time while I was there. It was packed with ladies when I got there...typical for early Saturday. I went to this show last year, so I new what to expect. While walking around I did notice that there weren't as many vendors as in the past.
But on to the good stuff! I really did come home with a LOT of new rubbah! I scored big at one booth that was selling their bare rubbah super cheap! I have duplicates of some of them, so I might be selling some of them here. Rubber Soul was also there and they had a table full of clear stamps for a dollar each! I ended up with a number of clear stamps from them...I scored big on getting some invitation and announcements stamps.
And Crafty Secrets was there! I have been admiring their stamps from afar *oogling over them online* and to see them in person! WOW! The owner of the company was there and super nice. She was chatting with all the gals visiting and oogling the great things in the booth. She had a TON of samples out and thankfully I had my camera with me to capture a few shots. I came home with a couple sets to try out. I love the vintage style, but I'm not sure how I'll do at capturing it on paper.
One of the local stores was there with there specialty. They do the Punch-Ins (I think that's what they are called). The little floral punches that are used to decorate cards and such. They have a line of stamps made to coordinate and be used with the punches. It's really neat, but I know I'm not explaining it as well as I could. Anyway, I resisted the punches, as that's not my thing right now...and got two bottles of fun flock from them. They had it buy one get one free! It wasn't the Stampendous brand, but looked just the same to me! I got yellow and brown.
And my biggest purchase?!?! I am SO excited about this one! Not that the others aren't exciting...but I GOT A SCOREPAL!!!!!!!!!!! *big squeal* I can't wait to pull this puppy out and start playing with it. The A Muse booth there had a make and take using the score-pal. I've been eyeing one for some time now and it's been on my to get list....but let me tell you that seeing it demo'd online is FAR different from actually USING it! It is SO great! I think I'm going to love this!
I had a great time...now all I have to do is find some time to use everything!

WOW! Have fun with your new stamps and especially that Scor-Pal. I got mine the week after Christmas and think I use it with almost every card I make, even if it is just for the fold.

Looking forward to seeing your stamping creations!
