Archiver's Kind of Day!!!

Guess where I went at 9am this morning?! Sorry Rene, I couldn't get to the phone. I was in the midst of listening to a Big Shot Demo! LOL! It's the Ellison Die cut machine. So many machines, so much confusion. No, I didn't get one. I still don't know what to get. But partly, because I don't want to get sucked in throwing away too much money in the long run. I mean, it doesn't just stop there....buying the machine.....after that, you've got to buy templates, adaptors, pads, blah, blah, blah. So I don't want to go to the poor house. But then again, it can do so many things!!! One of the things I love to do is dry emboss. She showed me how this machine can do that for me in two seconds! Whereas, the tradional way, will take me much longer than that! So, hmmmm.....I'm still undecided.

But look at what I bought instead! Lots and lots of paper. I just love these Basic Grey paper kit, don't you? Can't wait to make something out of those. Then I bought some Rhonna Farrer's (fluorishes and flower) acrylic stamps. My first stamp purchase out of SU! I've always been a SU! snob. So I'm getting away from that and using more products out there! SOOOOO liberating! But look at all the possibilities! So many products, so many YUMMIES! Ribbons, I can never have too much! I love these Basic Grey ribbon assortment! I got the Urban Couture and Lilly Kate to go with the paper I got! Then I also bought some Prima flowers. I'm a flower chick so I have to have flowers! And speaking of flowers, I also got some of those flower scuffers from Lasting Impressions.

Archiver's were also having a buy one get one free of adhesives so I bought a couple of those too! They were having LOTS of specials today, so if you have one by you....make sure to go!!! Also, since I'm one of their "loyal" customers, they gave me a gift! I got some of the Designer Paper with matching buttons. See them right in the front there? Also, check out the two cards Ava and I made from their make and takes! Inspiring....

OK, so I better go now and play with my new toys! I want to make some FUN things for my friends at My Scrapworks! Come back again, so you get to see what I've created with them!!! Or check out my gallery at My Scrapworks!

Happy Saturday!

SOOOOO jealous... Archivers... Ahhhh! There isn't even a Michaels or Hobby Lobby around here, let alone the world's most fabulous store - ARCHIVERS!!! You should see the "scrapbook store" here in town. um....

So, needless to say, not a problem that you couldn't answer when I called! And yay for you for not taking the plunge yet on the machines... You're right - there are so many and the cost doesn't end with buying the machine... Definitely something to think out and fully research.
