A tag, a basket and some other new goodies.

I'm super excited to share my new goodies with you today!  I have been searching for a three tiered wire basket for awhile now.  Back around Easter I saw a two tiered basket at Walmart for just $6 and thought "buy that Becky".  But I didn't.  Since then, I've seen several baskets but they were just WAY too expensive and I kept thinking about the $6 one.  However, every time I went back to Walmart, they were gone.  Until last night.  I walked down a different aisle and there they were, marked down to $4.50!!!!


I apologize for the crooked picture :) but you get the idea.  I bought two, one for my crafty space and one for the island in the kitchen!

Next up, I was able to get away to the scrapbook store this weekend and I picked up a couple of little things.







I love how fun and summery this line is!  Just look at those punchouts, with the orange pop bottle and the kids playing, too fun!  Then the paper, oh I LOVE this one with the houses on it.  I could eat it up!

This worked out perfect for a tag for our neighbors birthday party this Saturday.


I don't know if you can tell, but I stamped a tricycle on the background paper in Wheat Versamagic ink.  I think that's my new favorite ink!  I used Staz On ink on the punchout just because the surface was slightly shiny.
What new goodies have you picked up recently?  Anything summer related?  Hope you have a great day today, Mike and Abie are headed to the zoo with her school.  I'm sure they'll be worn out tonight!  Thanks for stopping by and I'll chat with you tomorrow!

  9. That is such a cute line and now I'll *have* to get the tags. I attended Western Washington University for a few years....in Bellingham WA. I've not seen a closeup so I didn't know that tag had Bellingham on it. Thanks for the enabling. I had a credit at my not so local store from their garage sale and I picked up the new Echo Park summer line and the core'dinations Tim Holz distress cardstock. Can't wait to play. Have fun with your summery goodies! :)

  11. Ohhh look at all that summer goodness.
    I never go to Walmart, ours is crazy. But my friend always shops there, and says if you see something you may want grab it, because it is gone the next day :)
    So what are you going to use the 2 tier basket for :)
