My first craft haul

Well I have decided to start having craft haul on here on my blog, their quite popular in blog land and feature where I show you my latest purchases and how they work and what I have done with the item. 

This month I purchased some photo polymer stamps by fabulously cool company Some odd girl, Totally fell in love with Some odd girl stamps from the first moment I seen them. They are USA company but I purchase my stamps from quixoticpaperie and last weekend they had sale on so decided to purchase my second lot of stamps.

I purchased a set of Spectrum noir pens early this year and only just started practising different techniques, so I will be adding lot more of my samples in coming months. Also I have tried my hand at paper piecing which I have not tried in long time.
That is all my purchases for now - until I buy more !!
So please follow me for the latest updates.
Bye for now!!

Tags, Bags and Boxes

Crafter's Companion June's (Facebook) challenge is Tags, Bags and Boxes 

Well I love to join a challenge and enjoy coming up with new ideas and its lots of fun too.

The card blank was Silhouette Cameo Store tag I received for free in the Freebie Tuesday a few weeks ago and enlarged the shape to create the card blank. 

I thought it was a good use of the challenge using a tag card blank and including handbag aswell, I think its come out really well and had tons of fun creating this card and any excuse to use my one and only set of Some odd girl clear stamps is also good.
