Lots of purchases!

I had three Archiver's coupons that were expiring on 12/31, and I decided to take a ride yesterday with my girls to use them up. The only problem is that I kinda wasted my 30% off one item coupon, because I only bought two things at regular price. Everything else I bought was on sale! My husband and girls had gotten me an Archiver's gift card for Christmas. I had no idea I would be spending it so quickly!


This is a lot of the Roxie items from Love, Elsie. I haven't purchased anything in this product line, and I really love the creations I've seen using these products! I love the red / turquoise combination! I got lots of patterned papers, small ribbon bobbins, and clear stamps! This product line is considered to be quite old now, but it's new to me!


I was the most excited to get these stamps! I had been looking at them on eBay for quite a while now, and they kept selling for too much. They retail for $14.99, so I was thrilled to get them at 50% off! I can't wait to use the "YOU ROCK" stamp on a page with my girls!


This is more Love, Elsie. These papers and large ribbons are from the Toby line. It's travel themed, but it can be used for anything. Once again, I love the colors. It's lavender, a soft green, a soft shade of blue, and some brown. I like it!


These are my two full-price items . . . the rhinestones. I got one in red and one in black. Hey, I think I saved 90 cents on one of them! I love the Queen & Co. buttons (they kinda coordinate with the Roxie papers or they'll work for Valentine's day!), and I've been wanting to try the die cut felt! I LOVE Rhonna Autumn Leaves items!


These items are from a trip to Michael's. I got all of the ribbon rolls for 70% off. They were 59 cents each. Can't beat that! The rectangular signs are for altering! They were only 50 cents each! These are so fun to alter! Take a look at this personalized plaques post I made quite some time ago! Now, how fun are they?

Happy New Year Everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

Looks like you've been having great fun shopping. I love the papers, they are fab. I can't wait for the Design Studio to arrive so I can have a play. I'm going to have to get my laptop back from the children so I can use it upstairs with my cricut. Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2008.

Hi, just realised I had missed a few people from my SBS2 sistah list, so here I am saying Hi and a Happy New Year to you and your family, and WOW look at all your goodies how cool are these, and I agree those stamps are to die for, not seem these in the UK, but looooove the skull and crossbones, I have three girls so these would be fantastic for my 10 year old especially she is so out of pink at the moment, lol

Hugs
