Crafty Haul #2

I may have accidentally taken a trip to Hobbycraft last week...& accidentally made a few cheeky purchases! *Oops!*

Ever since I reviewed the Sizzix Texture Boutique Beginner Dye-Cutting kit back in May, I have been addicted to card making! It's so much more personal and I enjoy creating something unique for each person, so I needed to get a few bits & bobs to keep my card making top notch. I have listed below my purchases:

1 - Cardstock Pastel Book £5 - I can't seem to find a link for this one on Hobbycraft! But I had a few sheets of this paper that came with my Sizzix set, however it was running low. I love it too much so had to get myself some more. I opted for Pastel colours, as I tend to use these colours more often.
2 - Dress It Up Red Hot Heart Buttons £2 - As I was planning on making an engagement card, I wanted to get something to fit with the theme & these heart shaped buttons were perfect!
3 - Hobbycraft A4 Sentiment Strip Sheets By Stephanie Weightman 2Pk Black £2 - Originally I was looking for rub on words as I am running low, but they didn't have what I was looking for. I wasn't so sure about these to begin with, however when I got them home & started working with them I thought they were great! Although I will keep my eyes peeled for rub on ones too!
4 - Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Dotty Stems £6 - I have brought cheaper embossing folders before, but it really doesn't pay off. You can hardly see the print, even after putting it through the Dye-Cutter a few times. I would definitely recommend spending a little more and this one from Cuttlebug is so cute!

  Here are a couple of cards I have made with my new purchases - what do you think? Have you had any crafty hauls recently?
