The patterned papers and paper pads were all 50% off, so I was immediately drawn to this gorgeous 12X12 pad called Simple Stories. It has a bit of Disney to it, and I like that, and I especially love the bold gorgeous patterns and colors which I desperately need in my stash which had way too much floral in it! The nice thing about this pad is that it has some great variety and it doesn't necessarily have to go with Disney things, but it would be perfect if you were scrapbooking your Disney World trip! My favorite pattern in here is the cameras with the hearts. So cute.
Since it was all 50% off I had to get a couple of 12X12 sheets of an adorable heart pattern and a 6X6 pad. This one, called My Mind's Eye, is double-sided paper which I love, and has plenty of shiny foil in the patterns which makes it magical. I'm already using some of it to decorate Midori booklets.
I have been wanting a sewing machine stamp forever. It wasn't until I got it home that I realized it also had a button in the set, and I actually needed a button stamp for a project! That was a win-win. I'm going to keep trying to resist being a craft shop-aholic, but my list is getting longer for the next haul! The main rule is, I can't buy it unless I have a place to put it. And I have a lot more room in my patterned paper storage caddies now, so I don't feel guilty at all.
