With the new year comes my scrap budget! The above photos are my recent purchases. The first photo shows the items I got at a scrapbook store a few days before Christmas. I used a gift card on the items I got (I still have $5 left YAY!). I am hoping to slowly get all the stickles because they are all so pretty! The second photo shows glitter Thickers. Thanks to Marci, I am now addicted to glitter Thickers!! I got 5 packages on sale 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I have been spending way too much the last 3 or 4 months so I am putting myself on a scrap budget. I need to save more and use what I already have. These were my last two splurges before the new year so they didn’t count toward my new budget.
This month is the first month of my budget and so far so good! I picked up the items in the photo below today
I have been looking for the “perfect” edge punch and I found this one online. I searched and asked around for it and finally found it at Michaels so I ran over there today. This punch is Martha Stewart’s Doily Lace Punch. I love it!!!! The other item is a circle cutter tool. I saw her use it on one of her shows and it looked so easy. So, I already burned about half of my January Budget 🙂
And January doesn’t look good now because of this Stampin UP Inventory Blowout!! There goes my budget!!!
