Where's My Craft Hauls???

I promised to share my haul from 3 recent craft shows to give y'all some ideas of which crafty items are worth buying. I also decided to share some make 'n takes that I did along the way to mix it up and keep you inspired! Thanks for stopping by... here we go!!

The Stamp Scrap Art Tour was here May 3-4 in Oaks, PA (outside of Philly). Betty Locco, close to my heart rep lead this amazing little take out box make 'n take and even had a mini (small as my pinkie thumbnail) example of this box as well. The box is cut from one of the CTMH/Cricut carts.

She had a $5 clearance bin in her booth so I got a couple of Christmas sets and a fall set. I especially loved the bling embellishments (not on sale but gorgeous!).

Stamps n' More led this CAS make 'n take. I bought the stamps to recreate this card at home.

Of course I had to add some shimmer with my wink of stella pen!!

We got a goodie bag at the make 'n take party. Here's some of the contents.

One of my favs Seaside Stampin' Ink lead a make 'n take using these stamps. I had to get them!

Repeat Impressions came out with wine stamps that include my name!!  I had to get them! They also had some stained glass window type stamps that could make great backgrounds. I got some more pop dots to make the spinner cards... couldn't find the right size anywhere!! And some patriotic stamps for my waterfall cards.

Tessler Stamps/Stencils has the best glue with a brush built into the cap. And I got some dies experiment with cutting soda cans and shimmer sheets and all kinds of sparkly goodness!! Her make n take featured the butterflies and my daughter fell in love. SO we had to get them!!

Do you Zentangle??? Well I am getting started with a healthy collection of stamps from Just For Fun!

My daughter's raffle prize and gift bag included these stamps.

I am crazy for peel off stickers!! You can do so much with them and they are so inexpensive. I have gone crazy (CRAZY I say) collecting these. I got these from Christina Lifestyles/Scrappigators. I also scored some Technique tuesday stamps and stamps by Hot off the Press. The boots by Stampendous were calling my name

Ok, game OVER. I lost my mind and ALL my $$$ at the Stampers Anonymous booth buying all the tim holts distress glitter, shadow embossing folders, distress inks, translucent embossing paste, the new ink daubers and refills, watercolor paper and stamps.

I won this giga circle punch in the raffle!! woo hoo!! great addition to my collection.

Here's a shot of all the make n takes my 9 year old daughter did unassisted!!! She's awesome!

Stamplistic has the best booth with all the sparkly layered goodness! I bought 2 of their special stamps and plan to get layering soon! I also spied this punch dr spray. figured it would come in handy!

Art Gone Wild has some really interesting stamps!

Darcie's Country Folk has the cutest stuff! They have stamp sets that coordinate with flat back buttons for the faces. They only have boys for the chocolate faces. I have asked for girls. In the meantime I am going to hook something up and hope it looks like a girl with their stamps and buttons.

Rubber Cottage has some really inspiring sentiment stamps.

Inky Antics had a great sale on all you see! Honeycomb paper and honey pop stamps!! Oh MY!!

I also ordered online from scrapbooking made simple. Here's what I got!!

While at scrapbook expo last month I got a million things from Escape Scrapbooking!!

I hope you enjoyed this haul post!
