Shopping Haul

One of my favorite things about scrapbooking is the shopping for scrapping supplies! And I love looking at new products and what other people buy, so I thought I'd share what I picked up yesterday. :D

I just love pretty paper! I have serious issues with cutting it though, but I'm working on it. ;) October Afternoon Thrift Shop & My Mind's Eye Penny Lane.

I recently discovered October Afternoon and I am in LOVE! The papers are so pretty and I adore the retro feel to it. I have always loved Dick & Jane and classic children's books. They remind me of reading circle in Kindergarten and my Mama at the sewing machine making clothes for our family. I rarely pay full price for anything (and everything else I'm showing you was either on sale or clearance) but I did for this set! That's how much I love it.

Another company I've fallen for is My Mind's Eye. Their stacks are gorgeous and this one is no exception!

I already have this t-shirt, but when I saw them on clearance at Michael's for $2.95 I had to have another one. I'm pretty hard on t-shirts!

Various embellishments

My daughter and I collected American Girl dolls together and this sticker is of her mini me doll "Holly" so I had to have it. Can't wait to scrap a picture of her and Holly. Love that they added buttons to the dollar section at Michael's, and I love swirls so I had to have this EK success punch.

I think I was drooling when I saw these at Archiver's. They really fit the bill for my love of children's lit. There is one for October that I can't wait to use with a new Stampin Up set called Greeting Card Kids. They'll be perfect together!

Pretty letters and embellishements. I just realized that I forgot to take a pic of some Tim Holtz clear tags. You'll just have to envision those in your head.

Hope you enjoyed shopping with me! :)
