Hi Tara and Julie,

My favorite item that I bought in February is my new BG papers.
On my wish list are the newest Prima flowers.


By the way, I'm just curious if the Rena that works for you is Rena Patenaude? I'm not sure what her married name is now, Johnson I think. If it is, please tell her Chandra says Hi.

Hi Tara and Julie,

My favourite thing I bought stamping wise in February was some Digital Princess Design Stamps. I really like the direction Alanna is going in, and I picked up some of her new designs. The one item that I would like to get my grubby little hands on is a Slice.. it's a portable die cut that runs on rechargeable batteries... it retails I've heard for $100 or so USD, so I won't be getting it any time soon.

I would love to hear your comments about the Slice if you have checked it out at CHA. I think it was made by I am not 100% sure of that though.

One of my favorite purchases in February is a chipboard alphabet by Creative Imainations called "cowgirl". I bought lots of coordinating stuff too 'cause i have the cutest pic of my baby stting on a saddle that her grandpa got at Christmas time.

My favorite item that I purchased in February would have to be my new Bella Stamps and Prisma pencils. I haven't received them yet, but am dying to try them out.

One thing that's on my wish list is alcohol ink. I've seen some great samples of cards using this technique and I really want to try it out myself. LOL--my wish list is way longer than one item though. I have a yearning to buy way too many stamps these days--all due to the fact that blogs have such great cards posted and I wanna make more!

Love your site, and I've bookmarked it cuz I know I'll be back.

Thanks for sharing your work.

My favorite item bought this month was a small girly girl scrapbook kit from a Buck or Two. The whole thing cost me $3.00 and I will be able to make a gazillion projects with it including some ATCs and 4 x 4's. I've been on a personal challenge to not spend money I don't have so my great buy will go a long way.

I would love to have some alcohol inks and some new rubber stamps.
