The result of New goodies

Hello crafty peeps!!

It's super late right now and my kids have been waking me up earlier and EARLIER lately, so this will have to be ramble free (hear that typing hands?! NO RAMBLING!)

So today I got a HUUUUGE box of goodies from my darling friend Linda, who has been diligently packing craft goodies away for me since DECEMBER and I'm so so so super excited they arrived. I even did a haul video--and I'm really not a fan of haul videos. I'll put it in the bottom of this post :)

Anyhoo, I sat down tonight to have a play with some of the new precious items that had arrived :) Here's what I made
this is a BAD photo, sorry, but it's too late to pull out my photo tent!

 OH! and here's my haul video if you'd like to see it. Apologies for the blurriness, I didn't notice it until I'd uploaded the video to my PC AND converted it into a different file format. (and I wasn't going to re-shoot it then! LOL)



If you have any questions or comments, I'd love to hear from you!


Take care! Thanks for looking :)

Love how the card turned out! You got to use lots of the new goodies! I like how although you use product from different companies, it goes together perfectly! Beautiful card, Linda!

Thanks for doing a haul video. I love seeing what other goodies are tops on people's list. And I love how you "pet" your new supplies...I do that too! They are just so loved...especially when you've waited awhile to get them! Enjoy! Can't wait to see what projects you come up with.

Fantastic haul! Always love getting new stuff & seeing what other's are using. I wasn't too keen on Lawnn Fawn when I first saw them, but now I'm addicted (only have 2 sets so far, saving up). Been looking everywhere for that envelope punch, any chance you can provide the online store details?

Stunning card, Linda! Love the colors you chose for your flowers. So super pretty. And that curly twine is so fun!! And your video?! *thud* ;)

Lisa Carroll said...

LOVE this card! I think what makes it extra special is that it was made with goodies that you have been waiting so long to use. :) I'm so happy for you.. and it's just beautiful!

Leslie Hanna said...

Love the card! I also don't do haul videos, but you definitely earned it this time! Wow, that's some great stuff. You will loooove the brioche papers.

And never, ever discount the fondle factor. :)

I laughed out loud when you patted your new Hero Arts inks - because I was thinking that that's just something I would do!
