I did a bit of shopping in Bristol and Bath – no earth shattering bargains or finds, but as it’s Wednesday and it’s all on my desk waiting to be put away, I thought I would share it all with you…….
They will make brilliant favor boxes and I also reckon I would be able to stamp on them with StazOn ink.
And, naturally I had to have a nosey around Accessorize, just in case they had anything new in …. the holiday themed stickers will come in useful for making a card for a friend who has just got a job in Tropical climes, and I just loved the ice cream/cupcake badges, not cheap at £3.80 – but I plan to add a few flat backed gems to them and attach them to cards.
I found the Kath Kidston shop in Bath – oh my life, I wanted everything, but all I could afford were two sheets of reversible gift wrap! So many pretty things – but oh so expensive!
Lovely ribbon by East of India – always very useful at Christmas time (sorry …… I know its TOO early to mention THAT word) as it comes in muted colours and old fashioned texture. And some metal tags (60p each) which I will probably just slip into a kraft envelope and give instead of cards to special friends. The mushroom is on a fat peg …. I thought it was an idea I could try ….. when I have the time.
Finally from Poundland – the animal and robots are bubble stickers – so they will add extra dimension to a card. I don’t do many boy’s/men’s cards so I thought I would challenge myself to use the robot ones.
And last but not least some Fairy Princess stickers also from Poundland, so sweet.
So that’s it. I won’t put them all away immediately, with two weeks off work I am going to try and use a lot of what I have here to replenish my card box in the staffroom which is very empty at present.
