birthday haul

I did a little online shopping a couple of weeks ago in anticipation of my birthday, and as the day has finally arrived (and now passed, belated blogging here), I thought I'd share in my happy birthday happy mail happiness with you! There's a video at the bottom!

A few of these items are some pieces I've been anticipating being released after seeing them debuted at the CHA winter show in January, and I was so excited that they were finally out!

These are the Maggie Holmes' Styleboard frames from Crate Paper. Love them!! They come in different sizes, AND different orientations. There are three gold glitter frames and the rest are printed.
They are thin chipboard... a nice weight; not super thick and much heavier than cardstock.

LOVE this package of die cuts from Maggie Holmes' Styleboard line for Crate Paper! Look at that typewriter -- gold foil keys! And a birdie on a frame! And awesome flowers!They're very light chipboard, like the frames are. 

Here's another look at a few of my favourite pieces from the package...

Seriously. How cute is that birdie?

Some awesome exclusive 2Peas wood veneer! And flair!

And lastly, metallic gold and metallic silver vellum! These are from the new Sheer Metallics line by WRMK. I purchased individual sheets but you can also buy a whole 12x12 pad at once! Shown here is gold heart vellumsilver heart vellumgold text vellumsilver text vellum, and gold dot vellum.

I show a comparison of the WRMK gold dot vellum to the American Crafts Dear Lizzy gold foil polka dot vellum in the video below  (at about 32:00)

So many of these lovelies were in my most recent Two Peas order! I am crazy about those gold glitter Styleboard frames. Love 'em -- so much. Too much. It's unnatural.
