CKC Stock Up
I spent yesterday at the Creating Keepsakes Convention. It was a lot of fun as usual and I discovered a new favorite booth at the vendor faire, too!
I always check out the dollarscrapbooking.net booth - and rarely leave without buying something. This year it was 3 large sets of Fancy Pants stamps for $8.00 each and a couple smaller sets for $4.00 each. Seeing as the large sets used to retail up to $39.99, I think I did pretty well. I also picked up 3 sets of Fancy Pants rub-ons - gorgeous at $1 a piece - as well as a bunch of cardstock stickers and journalling spots.
The Scrapbooking Closeouts booth has more great deals. I got 7 clear stamps sets there for $22 - and they are gorgeous! This is the same booth where I got a bunch of butterfly embellishments last year. This year they had a smaller version at 12 for $1. Yup...got them in every color. I couldn't resist getting more cardstock stickers at this booth either.
This was my last purchase location. I have used a bunch of pink flower rhinestones in recent projects and came to CKC specifically to restock. I had hoped to find them at dollarscrapbooking.net or the Scrapbooking Closeouts booth - no luck. Then, I came across this great new booth. It is Tallmouse Crafts (http://www.tallmouse.com/). 21 mm flower-shaped rhinestones at 30 for $1? I'll take it! I'm totally hoping that they will be at every convention so I can re-stock without shipping charges!
Skrimp N Skrap! Now to figure out where to store everything. :-(
