Discount Craft Haul

Hello there, I am bring you a little craft haul today for a few items I've purchased recently and all are available from discount stores in UK. I do love getting a bargain and get more for my money, as the purse does get a little stretched at times. Do keep your eye out for bargains in the discount stores as most of the company's I'll be mentioning do get new stock in quite regularly. 

First item I am going to show you is something that was brought to my attention by fabulous Facebook friend!! (thanks Rachael) she told me about this Crelando card sometime ago and wanted some ever since, but as it was from Lidl I had to wait until it was available, as Lidl bring out sorts of items every week apart of their special buys. So last week Rachael kindly reminded me that it was available from last Monday...yippee!! so I picked up three packs of the cardstock which is 270gsm and two packs of the paper 135gsm (almost like the lighter version of card really) If you can do pop down and get some as its excellent quality and lovely colours too. Retails at £1.99 each,

Other best buy I had to mention was this Colvin and Co Artist and hobby brushes that I'd picked up in Home Bargains for only £3.49 for 25 brushes including the special foam brushes. They are really good for the money and stand up really well and I found them just perfect for me, especially for when I'm watercolouring.

Well the next few items to show you are for my planner / organiser, (yes I can't believe it myself) it all started when I was watching YouTube videos and seen so many planner videos, it just made me want to get organised. The fancy planners that are out there right now, are very lovely and so pretty but are totally and utterly out of my league, so set about creating my own. Checking out the local discount stores I found tons of items just perfect for my planner and suits my budget.

I will be decorating and getting it all created shortly and will do blog post to show you how I get on and give you some inspiration on creating your very own planner.
