For me, I'm really into glassine bags & kraft bags. I like to stamp them, embellish them, paint them, etc. I use them in my journals & scrapbook pages and sometimes on a card. Next week or even tomorrow it'll be something else Blushing, but right now that's what I'm into.

Lol! Those are my two favorite things right now also. I have a hard time passing up the 6x6 pads. I love the price and how the design is smaller. Now, where and how to store them!

I love anything chevron right now! I am so excited because SU has some cute chevron ribbon in their upcoming catalog & I can't wait to get it. I also found this awesome chevron background stamp at HL last week on clearance. Now I just have to use it!

Wedding invitations. And as soon as I am done with those, bridesmaids dress. And possible vests for the groomsmen. I refuse to make ties, though. I have tried that, and the one time I tried it, the tie looked awful.

Then maybe a dress for me, mother of the bride. I have fabric. I just hope I get it done.

Not much papercrafting for me in the next couple of months. Other than invitations.

Me too! I have too many to say but I love them! There are some cute ones from American Crafts, Studio Calico & My Mind's Eye that I've added to "the list". One of these days I will do more crafting & less collecting LOL.

I'm into collecting chevrons, arrows, tab punches, simple stories collections, MS punches, project life and relaxing. LOL

I have this cart & still haven't used it. Your butterflies are gorgeous! I just got two butterfly punches from SU & I've got my eye on a MS one. I really need to stop Flapper.

I have really been looking for a good tab punch. The WRK ones didn't get really good reviews so I stayed away from those, but I was wondering what ones you have? What would you recommend?

I did get the WRMK tab punches. I have no problems with them. I am very glad I bought them.
I can't imagine why they wouldn't get good reviews. I bought the sticker sheets that go with each punch but haven't used them yet. I am going to use the punch shape as accents/labels on my scrapbook pages. They all punch the shapes easily and cleanly.


ETA: I saw some bad reviews on Amazon.com. These customers thought the punch cut out a double sided tab and it doesn't. You need the sticker sheets to go with it.
But, I did fold a piece a paper in half. I made sure not to punch through the fold.
I got a doubled sided tab doing it that way.
So the bad reviews were from customers not doing their homework when buying this product.
There is nothing wrong with the punches.
The way I use them on my scrapbook pages I don't want a double sided tab.

I recently got into 6x6 paper pads too. The shrunk down patterns are just too cute! Also recently got into journaling/title cards, I don't do PL but I like to use them on my regular layouts. Some of the cut apart sheets of titles like the Echo Park ones are so pretty, also bought some of the MAMBI title cards at Michael's.

I just finished making a bunch of Nesting Dolls cards for my friend who likes to give them as Thank you cards.She asked for these particular colors/patterns.

Also I have just discovered TJ Maxx and Marshalls got some new (oldBigGrin ) Martha Stewart border/corner and punch around the page (I think that's what they called)punches, so I've been checking all local stores to get what I can find. Also found several Crate paper 6 x 6 paper pads there, very cuteLove

My table mates at Circle Mania introduced me to the WRMK Crop-a-dile. I am obsessed with eyelets. I even got the Big Bite but don't like that as much as Crop-a-dile.

Those are wonderful! Is the doll from a Cricut cartridge? I have nesting dolls on my Paisley and Simply Charmed cartridge. My daughter is from Russia so plan on using some nesting dolls in her adoption album.

Love those nesting dolls!!! Is it a Cindy loo cut?

I have shifted gears and now into putting dress forms on my butterfly cuts.
It was a freak accident, I had laid a chipboard die cut over some butterfly
wings and loved the effect! Does anyone know of a metal die with great (meaning intricate) cuts of a dress form?

I am pretty sure these are from Simply Charmed. I hid contour on some layers and did not cut the unnecessary parts. I made a file on my Gypsy a long time ago, so it might be Paisley as well.
Thank you.

Thank you so much for the info! Amazon was one of the places that I had seen the reviews. I think I will get one & try it out. I liked their style & I haven't had a bad experience with WRMK products before so I'm glad to hear that you like them!

You did such a good job on these! I will be going to TJ Maxx tomorrow & hopefully I will find some goodies. Is your store big? Mine doesn't seem to carry that much & I usually walk out empty handed, but I haven't been there in a very long time so hopefully it's changed.

Just went to a couple of Marshalls and TJ Maxx today, they have several MS deep edge punches and other ones too, lots of embossing powder (Imaginisce), AC glitter, MS stamp around the page stamps-several of those.

I live in Boston, we have several of the stores here, not too big, but they get craft supplies very frequently.

I have seen nesting dolls on 3 carts but like the ones on Simply Charmed the best. I just cut them as is and the ones on Simply Charmed have the nicest faces in my opinion. I bought the cutest nesting dolls paper from HSN too. Thanks for giving me the incentive to get working on them.

My new thing is art journaling with mixed media. I'm really not very good, and have spent a ton on STUFF. But the people who do it and have been doing it, say not to give up, just keep trying. One good thing is, if you don't like what you did, you can just paint over it. The very first thing I did turned out incredible, but I've not been as lucky since. It sure is fun tho.
