Oooh, goodies...

Thought I'd share a few bits of stash that have arrived today.

My craft to do list has grown and I found some papers to inspire me as on my list is a mini book of Jamie & Rosie. Each month I've been taking photo's of them as a record of the year. I think it's something I'll keep up (poor kids). So, the plan is to have everything all ready to use and in a bag so when I get the urge I can just get on with it. Fingers crossed the plan works.

First up - American Crafts "Junior". Its all double sided, and handily plain on the reverse side, but I just love the glazed papers they have now. The orange sheet is plain orange with glazed spots. Let me tell you, it's beautiful in real life. In with this lot is a little something for my JYC - a sheet of the glittered cardstock in leaf. It is so heavy. I'm not a glitter girl but I may be getting more of this.



I don't know about to you, but I always used to be a Bazzill only cardstock girl, but then I tried AC cardstock as it was cheaper and I was on a stash diet and I have grown to love it. And this is my new addition - a swatch book.






And of course, if you're buying AC - then you have to have (yet more) Thickers. This time "Delight" mini fabric ones.




Next - Jillibean Soup "Sugar". A range of papers that are spotty one side and checked the other. Fab basics to have in your stash mountain.


Phew, that's it. Didn't look much in the box, but this feel like a long post. I'm waiting for two more stash orders come as well. The October Monster Mash kit from Indigo Mill and most of the October Afternoon Report Card collection. Guess what that will be used for!
Thanks for dropping by!

Love the look of your new stash. What a lovely idea to make a book of the kiddies, i might use this idea in the new year - 1 picture a month, got to be easy to keep this up, even for a seriously slow scrapper like me (lol)

oh what lovely statsh! I have never used AC cardstock - but I liked the look of the texture of it in your fab photo of the swatch book. All the other papers looked gorgeous and I can't wait to see the layouts they will be appearing on. I have given myself a self imposed stash buying ban now until I have used up some of my scrapagogo boxes - I have loads sitting there unused!
