2013 Creating Keepsakes Convention (CKC) Haul - the sequel...

If you'd like to see my first haul post click here.

Believe it or not, all these purchases (both days) fit into one normal sized re-useable shopping bag!! I bought a lot of little things. I hope you enjoyed all the things I posted yesterday! This post is the final haul post for CKC 2013. I hope you get out to a craft convention. It's pure joy! Ok, let's get to it!! Remember to click on the pics to make them bigger. Links for each retailer (that sells online) are included under the picture.


I nearly passed out at the register when I saw all the prima dolls!!! Buy 5 get one free and 30% off my entire purchase in the first hour of the show!! SCORE!! I got prima flowers, plenty of little stamps, color me card toppers, Leeza Gibbons scrapbooking supplies - very impressed. Among other things.

This brought me right back to grade school! So I figured it would be great to have this protractor stamp on hand for my 2 kiddos!

Jenni Bowlin Studio

I fell in LOVE- LOVE- LOVE with this stuff! It's called diamond mesh. It's ribbon that looks like jewels that can be cut in any shape - even with steel rule dies to crate a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. I also got the flower shaped one that must be cut by hand.

Queen and Company is great for unique washi tape, bling, Disney embellishments and such. It's a must shop booth!

Washi tape heaven!!! I found all but the chevron on the end there. The one on the end was given to me by VP who was at the event with me. I forget where she got it. Thanks girl!

This is the fastest, cutest way to make jewelry! Craft Fantastic offers chains, glass and settings including rings, earrings, pendants etc. You can use their images or your pictures or even cardstock and create a masterpiece in a few mins. I bought some of the kits last year but decided to get some new chains, pendants and such.

I found the other Prima doll and some black plastic mesh for my Disney LO at Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo!! Unfortunately, their website was hacked but they do have a working blog.

I took an advanced clear cards class from Clear Scraps and it was amazing!! I feel like I only need to take advanced classes at expos from now on. The results were stunning and I will share them with you in the next few days. I got several of their kits, 3D stemple paint, window paint and a detailer tip for my glue. Class goers got a free gift. I picked a tag that is very thick and used for home decor. I think I might make a Christmas ornament out of it. I am thinking about joining their kit of the month club!!
