The one with big letters

This past Sunday I went shopping in the states with Jess and Krysti. We ended up going to one of my new favorite spots, TJ Max! I used to go all the time and then kind of forgot about it. But I have been twice recently and scored some great stuff.

These big solid wood letters stand about 14" tall. They were in the clearance isle for $5.00 each! So I scooped them up! The funny thing was they were the only two letters they had.... but the right ones for me (Elizabeth and Alain). Eventually I want to put a floating shelf above the TV in my living room to put them on, but until then they will be in my scrap room :)

Yes my messy scrap desk! Got lots of projects going on so this is actually the most clean it has been in a while :)
In more scrap related news... I finished another Momenta project. This is a quick card I made. They have packages of cards with envelopes that are super cute, ready to decorate.
Yesterday I went over and picked up this months design team Kit for Scrappy Chic! LOVE IT. Shout out to Angela for giving me some great stuff :)

New Fancy Pants paper and stickers! So my colors - turquoise and deep pink!!!
Also bought some stuff to supplement...or maybe just because I wanted them!! lol. Jenni Bowlin butterfly sheets. They are here in pink and yellow.... but I did buy the red and black as well :)

Some ric rak came in the kit and I found these new Bazzill bling buttons!!
Bo Bunny buttons in my kit go really well with the paper.... love buttons.
Bo Bunny paper as well. Works out great since I did buy some of the new papers but not this line! This would be a great boy line although I think its a summer line.

My big purchase of the day was a Cuttlebug!!! I have been thinking about it for a while now and since I had lots of credit from the yard sale and a 40% off coupon so I went for it! The only reason I really wanted it was so I could play with the nestabilities dies. I bought two of those as well since they were all 30% off too!! But they didn't have any cuttlebugs in stock so I have to wait to play with it :( I hate waiting.
Anyone else have a cuttlebug? Do you love it? I had to pick between the Epic 6 and Cuttlebug but I just liked some of the features better on the bug. Any dies I NEED to get??

Ohh you have lots of beautiful goodies there, sigh.
I have the cuttlebug and love it. I notice if I keep it out I use it more. Mind you I haven't been doing anything crafty lately :(

Glad you like your kit! I gave you those Fancy Pants papers...and then immediately bought the exact same ones for myself (plus more).
I'll be posting about my own yard sale spoils soon :)
I have a Big Shot, and I love nesties and embossing folders! Have fun playing (whenever you actually get the thing, that is!).
