new supplies for christmas gifts (and some just for me!)

so here's my latest shopping spree - actually it's two shopping extravaganzas! how fun right! eirc even went along with me on a visit to the scrapbook shoppe we had loads of fun.. ok maybe i had loads of fun - but he liked seeing all the fishing papers and actually wanted to get them.. all of them! so here is my break down and evidence of all the shopping, most of it being for making christmas presents but some are thrown in there for me - super fun style!
the tim holtz.. well, everyone should ALWAYS be stocked in tim holtz but i do have one gift inperticular that i had in mind when buying these. the ribbion and flowers are totally me! love them things but i'm sure they'll sneek themselves into someones book somewhere.. the borders well, they are my newest answer for everything - a mistake an edging whatever! so i bought 12 colors and cut a load of borders from the accu-cut at ruban rouge they will com ein handy for sure! the cork is going to be amazing - can't say what i'm using it for and the grunge paper.. ok i have to admit i've never used it but i know its the time to try cause with what i'm making my mom this year.. its going to be perfect!

the borders up close! i'm so excited to start using them.. next to ribbion, inbetween papers.. oh how fun this scrap stuff can be!

this 7 gypsies tape is amazing i can't seem to ever get enough - again this is for my mom's gift along with the basic grey rub-ons! can't wait to even see this "book" myself! all the above stuff i got at ruban rouge.

this is the shopping spree that eric and i did together. the fabrics, batting and punches i got on sale at jo-anns (while eric was in aports athority)

i was so excited to fine this early bird collection at scrapbook shoppe! i've looked everywhere else!! so i of course got a couple pages of everything they had! the stand... well, you'll have to wait to find out more about that...

the eylets, pins and mini clear evenvelopes are for a baby book i'm making! can't wait to start that one after the holidays.. its going to be made out of fabric like and "old" baby book i had growing up.

this is the fabric i'll be using to make the base of the book; muslin, batting and tulle.. its going to be amazing fun!

this is the fishing stuff eric was so excited about and will start making our canada fishing trip (that we took back in may/june!) book after the holidays.

fishing stickers to go..

then there's pauls Marine book - you think i have enough projects going? - i need to give it to him next week at graduation.. and i'm NOT done yet! oh my oh my!

been wanting these punches for a while - they were 40% off at jo-anns and when there.. i had to splurg! makes things so much easyier!

ribbions! for fun and for the baby book.. this is fun stuff here people!

well i'll start posting finished projects soon! with all these new supplies.. i think they'll keep me busy for a while!
