A Craft Barn Spend - Part 2
So as promised here I am back again confessing more of my spending sins from a few days ago at The Craft Barn. As you saw from yesterday's post I had a lovely time accumulating some cardstock and papers but of course there was more!! I really liked the look of these Marianne Creatables dies as they look quite ornate - one of them is quite a lot bigger than the other and am thinking the larger one could make quite an interesting easel card? We'll see!! I loved that you got some extra swirls and flowers with them too as I think these will be invaluable for embellishing cards with. (You can never have too many swirls in my book - whether it's stamps, punches or die-cuts!) The ribbon flower sets looked really interesting too which are the two sets on the right of the above photo. I haven't tried them out yet but I've seen them on a website and they looked really pretty. I think I'm correct in that they have slits in the flower dies which you then thread ribbon through - anyway I shall find out in due course!
The mulberry leaves I thought would be the perfect accessory for an upcoming magazine project that I am about to do so these HAD to go into my basket and lastly the ribbons went with some of my papers (from yesterdays post) so it would have been a crime not to have them..................wouldn't it??
