Here are some of my recent purchases:

Pink Bind it all
Pre-ordered Martha Stewart Punches, and in the sale some Lily of the Valley stamps and a Cuttlebug embossing folder at The Hobby House
Set of big yellow punches at Do Crafts they were £9.99 each but I bought them 5 for £8.99, gave Mum two for her birthday, they have cheap stamps and other stuff too.
Bought some stamps on Ebay Penny Black and House Mouse from the USA, not yet paid for.
Plate of butterflies and verse in the sale for £11 at The Crafty Pad
June race for life stamp at The Crafty Pad
The full set of new Leanne Ellis Sugar Nellie stamps and a cute little stamp set of doggies on a settee at Funky Kits
Two Annie stamps and two Memento ink pads from Charmed Cards and Crafts, the Annie stamps are a bit expensive for UMs hence only two.
Waiting for the latest goody bag and the new butterfly punch from Papermania to arrive at my local art and craft shop.
Nearly forgot - I bought a load of Smoochie Manoochie stamps in the closing down sale from Tracey!

What have you bought recently?

I bought my plain nesties - round, oval, square and retangle (already have the scalloped versions). Also got the new extra long master plates for the wizard and the magnetic sheets to hold the dies in place. Wink Smile

Of course my sis Joani is to blame for that - she gave me a voucher for Joanna Sheen and I put an order in with her and got the rest from Once Upon a Stamp site. Smile Smile

I bought some silver jewelry links for hanging charms on my cards and a Sizzix decrative flourish die, I'm on a bit of a stash diet at the moment though so I'm trying to stay away from online craft shops. Crying or Very sad

My last buys were a scalloped blade for my Woodware paper trimmer, and a Giggling Tilda stamp by Magnolia. I never really liked the Tilda stamps - it's that whole 'no mouth' thing with the face, but after winning one in a blog candy draw and getting some others as stamped images, I've started to like her a lot more as they are lovely images to colour. The one I bought is a good compromise because she's giggling and has her hand over her mouth, or where her mouth would be if she had one!

That sounds like an improvement to Tilda to me! I once heard someone say they didn't want any images with faces that look like a bottom (might have been slightly less polite words) which is very apt.

I have just ordered some Letraset Tria markers, a set of 24. I looked them up after reading a post on them and they are similar to the proper Copics in that you can change nibs and refill but the refills are cartridges not bottles of ink. The set I've ordered is skin tones with pinks, and lilacs I think called Shojo girls. I got them from Art and Craft Discount store where they were the cheapest I could find and there was free postage.

If you can't beat them join them, or something like that! I saw that they had Copic Ciao's in my local art and craft shop, they are £1.99 each though.

I did read a review on it that I found when googling it, and the person showed the difference between scallops cut with it and a die, the die was more defined. She also said it didn't cut detailed letters out properly all the time, and it is very noisy.

Apart from that I don't know Deanne, I was considering it but I don't think I will bother with it now.

Well I have gone and ordered myself some Promarkers..couldn't resist it - I just have to try them..lol, lol
I order a pack of 5 skin tones
1 Blender pen
1 pack of 12 colours - can't remember the name - but think they are the brighter colours rather than the pastels...

I can't wait to get them and have a play - if I like them I might go for the Tria pens - not sure yet????

View user profile http://bubble-deb.blogspot.com
I probably should have done that Debbie! I am an impulse buyer, but sometimes I study stuff for ages, hunt for best prices and just don't do it, so I decided to take the plunge and go for it. Will be limited colours for now, but I can buy singles of Promarkers if I need to.

Yip Cazzy being able to buy single colours is great - I will probably be buying some more myself if I get on with the ones I have ordered. Smile

I just bought 100 sheets of green card that has arrived and is the wrong shade of green and much too soft I suspect for Robo to cut, £20 down the drain.

I also bought Memento Inks to use with my Letraset Tria set that turned up last week.

I have a craft robo and can cut quite thick card, what do you mean by too soft?
Hope this does not sound too rude, I am just curious!

View user profile http://seedlings-mum.blogspot.com/
Hi Canne, if the card it too fibrous it apparently won't cut well, but
strangely this card cuts perfectly well so I am happy, well in two cuts
it does! Just got to cut out lots of butterflies for the place names
now. flower

I
may try and get a different colour for the butterfly tree, though with
this cutting so well maybe I will stick with it if they don't mind it
being more yellow that really wanted. flower

I
have had problems cutting lots of card with the Robo, but then I
usually buy pick and mix and a lot of it is too thick, sent some with
the Robo to Graphtec to check and they said it was too thick. Now I
have a digital calliper to check, though that is playing up now. As
long at the card is .33 or less it will usually cut though some coated
card doesn't work so well. pirat

Guess what I bought? Question

Guessed yet? Arrow

Yes more stamps! Idea

A grab bag of Sugar Nellie stamps for £9.99 plus postage, no idea what I will get but it is supposed to be something from each of the Sugar Nellie artists so might be interesting. As they are UMs at least they don't take up too much room. I love you

Oooh Cazzy I saw that offer but I already have many Sugar Nellies and didn't want to get duplicates. Not that I can afford to buy any at the moment anyway! You'll have to let me know which ones you get. I'd be interested to know.

View user profile http://fe-fesworld.blogspot.com/
Thanks for replying to me Cazzy and it is not just me that can't stop buying stamps then?
I did'nt buy the grab bag (same reason as Fe Fe) but did end up adding to my little collection. I love Leanne Ellis stamps.
