Sometimes you find a lot and sometimes you find nothing. A recent trip to M’s put me in my “happy place”, I found a lot, a lot!
Click on the picture to see everything that I found. I’ll also take you through a little show case of everything.
First up is Tim Holtz’s grundge paper. This is different from grundge board (which is thicker) this is a thinner product and I like it a lot, especially in use for making his tags.
Yes, more Tim Holtz. Love the vintage look of his stuff and the time pieces that helps with the masculine side of cards.
You can actually make the hands of the clocks set at a particular time. Maybe the time they were born on a birthday card?
These are great pieces from Recollections (which is M’s line). At the M’s I visit closest to me these were 40% off and so I grab several. I went to a couple of other M’s and they were not on sale. So the lesson here is to visit several. Just because one doesn’t have it or it is not on sale it doesn’t mean another won’t have them.
You can actually cut these apart and get several cards or pages out of them. Love the lace trim that is attached.
These are $1 stamps, great for embossing and using as a focal point for thank you notes.
Loving the size of these. Large enough to make a focal point all by themselves. I can see these being colored with Copics, some resisting or embossing.
Some more $1 bling, and again you can cut these and use multiple times.
Lot of felt. I’m planning on doing some felt flowers to both wear and to put on some cards. Love felt, this was $.29 a sheet and if I mess it up no big loss.
I couldn’t resist these either, yep they are a $1 find too. Can’t you just see felt flowers, felt bird, felt butterfly, felt leaves. Oh, inspiration is brewing!
Finally, some cute flowers. These too were found in the $1 finds. I’m telling you this is a cheap way to build some accessories for your wardrobe. Cluster them together (you need 3), vary the size, texture and I try to make two of the grouping similar in color (i.e. like a black/white polka dot with a solid black then pop with some color.
Love the blue flower with the light blue around the edges….yes, I did I glitters some of the petals.
Whew! That was a great trip to M’s. Now that I have gathered all of this stuff I need to get busy and create.
