Punches, Monthly Distress, Stamps, Beading ...

Hello !
I have been unpacking the last 2 days and have some fun things to share !
First ... the TIM HOLTZ PUNCHES have arrived !! I think these will be wonderful. Sometimes you just want to quickly punch out a few shapes and these will do just that. There are 3 sizes and a variety of shapes - hearts, stars, hexagons, ovals, shields, birds, butterflies, branches, leaves and more. And expect Christmas ones soon too !!

I also have some new stamps for Christmas & Hallowe'en as well as some cute beachy dies.
And BLUEPRINT SKETCH Monthly Distress ink has arrived !
 Click on the blue highlighted date below this (Thursday July 30)  to go to the album and see all that is new !
