4,000 hits may be hardly anything to some of you but to me it's a MILESTONE!
AND any excuse to celebrate and give away BLOG CANDY is fine with me!
Here's the package - it's an Embellishment Assortment!!
(more photos at the bottom of this post)

Included is:


4 pewter SU! Hodge Podge Hardware rectangular frames,


4 stainless mini clips,


4 rectangular paper clips,


4 Clipiolas (round paper clips) in copper, brass and stainless,


4 @ clips,


4 jumbo paper clips (2 silver & 2 brass - great for bookmarks),


8 prima flowers (assorted colours),


a selection of rhinestones (great to put in the middle of the flowers!),


6 Making Memories jumbo pebble brads,


4 yards of ribbon - bright green & red gingham, red/pink/green stitching (perfect compliment to the Papertrey strawberry stamp!), green/olive/mint stripe ribbon


and 4 chipboard coasters (2 square & 2 round - not pictured).



****Here's what you have to do to get in on the draw for this BLOG CANDY****




I'm the first one to admit that I'm addicted to shopping for new stamping & scrapping stuff!



I want you to leave me a comment on this post and tell me what you're latest & greatest stamping & scrapping find is.



Mine has got to be PRIMA flowers. I can't stop buying them. I love all the colours and patterns. Right now I'm still hoarding them a bit - although I have cracked open a few boxes to use for my kids' stamping class.

In exchange for you sharing this information with me (and all my blog readers) I will randomly draw a name from the list of comments and the lucky person will get the following package.

I'll draw the name on Wednesday, May 9th,

Let the sharing (and shopping) begin!

  1. Hi Marie ... great blog. I visit regularly and keep up with Google reader! I have to admit that I really love the Primas as well, however I really have a new appreciation for DP. It is amazing to see all of the different patterns and styles in infinite quantities. I am finding my DP bin is almost as full as my cardstock bin. TFS.

  2. I also love the Primas (and am guilty of hoarding them!), but my latest, greatest find would have to be the new brads that are available - Jewels, stripes, polkadots...all great for putting in the center of a Prima flower! They may not be new to others, but here where I live they are.

    Oh, boy, just one thing...I would have to say I am TOTALLY addicted to patterned paper and brads!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hmm...I think jeweled brads would be the thing. I do have quite the stash of primas and silk flowers and they are so set off with a little bling! Cheers to you Marie!

  8. Hi Marie!
    We'll have to plan a shopping trip together some time! Meet ya' in North Van perhaps??
    Besides my on-going love of ribbon, lately I'm out of control buying unmounted stamps. I swore I never would as I LOVE SU!, but not only have I have strayed to Papertrey and Bellas, I have also bought some Missy B, Inky Antics, and Gina K (although that was a set fundraising for Autism Speaks)....ARRGGHHH!! I must stop so I have money for the fabulous stuff in the new catty!!
    C ya' soon!

    Hello
    I would say, papers. I love buying new paper all the time. And pretty much anything from Stampin Up, but I have to hold myself back, it would just get to expensive.

    ReplyDelete
  11. wow...what a haul Marie...You are the greatest. I haven't been shopping lately. Just window shopping and waiting for the new catty to come out. But I'll be checking in on what other stampers post to see what I'm missing!

  12. Hi Marie...Love your blog! I also have just discovered Prima flowers. I love them, though I have no idea what to do with them. I am also a paper and embellishment hound! I just love them, but I hardly ever use them. I guess I'm mainly a collector of them!!

  13. My fav is my Cuttlebug I just got it and love to use it :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm a big fan of primas, too, but I think my biggest fascination lately has been with designer papers - they are so yummy, with all those pretty colors and designs!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Patterned papers and ribbon at the moment. Have a great day!

  16. Hello Marie, my latest purchase was a range of the lovely Basic Grey papers in 6 x 6's for cards and some 12 x 12s of the plain colours. Blush, Perhaps, Stella Ruby and Scarlets Letters - I think they're fabulous designs. I'm loving the look of your Primas too; so they're something to go check out next I think....

  17. I have been buying a LOT of acrylic stamps lately. I opened that door and RAN through it. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have to say I love the primas as well. I also really like the brads from Michaels with the rinestones in the middle they add a little bling to my pages and cards, and I also love the ribbon.

  19. I would have to say my cuttlebug. My husband gave it to me for my Mother's Day gift. Loving it! Great blog and blog candy. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Right now it is anything that is to do with embossing. I got a cuttlebug and the wizard charm accessory kit so now I can use my Fiskars texture plates, the Big shot texture plates AND my brass embossing stencils.

    Otherwise it is acrylic stamps. I just went unmounted, LOVE it. Took a month to convert my SU stamps to unmounted but SOOOOOOOO worth it.

  25. Great blog Marie. I keep up with your blog regularly through my google reader. My latest and greatest new find would have to be the clear stamps. I just came from a scrapbook expo and got the Rhonna Farrer flourish stamps and can't wait to play with them.

  27. What great candy. Who doesn't like embellishments? The greatest thing I found lately was today at a scrapbook crop. I used (and ordered) a double punch called Geometric Multi-Maker from Creative Memories.

  31. Hi Marie,

    My latest and greatest purchase has been primas too, but now that I have them, I don't know what to do with them!!!!

    But what I really want is the round paper clips, they seem so versatile!

  32. Congrats on all the hits! I'm loving the cuttlebug folders. But it's paper that I'm addicted to. Geesh, I've got paper galore and just can't seem to quit buying more.

  33. Hey Marie,
    I think my favorite thing (for now anyway)is ribbon. I love ribbon...even though I do tend to hoard it =). I have to admit though, I've never tried primas. Maybe that will be my next obsession as soon as I try them.

    ReplyDelete
  34. PRIMAS!!!!

    I LOVE them.....I don't like to use them either and like to look at them in the jars!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have yet to buy Primas because I am scared I will have to have ALL of them and will hoard them. :D I am in love with ribbon and patterned papers...which I also love to hoard!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love ribbon and patterned paper. It's hard for me to pass by the sale ribbon at Michael's. Last time I was at AC Moore they had their ribbon by the yard on sale - buy one yard get one free. Needless to say I bought a "little bit" of ribbon! My patterned paper supply is growing too. The problem is that I buy it but have a hard time cutting it and using it! I think I need help!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Mine HAS to be the Prima flowers too, Marie although I haven't found any of the Hydrangeas YET, I did get some Sprites on the weekend!! So yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  38. My problem is I want everything! :)
    Not a lot of everything, but just a little taste of everything. But ribbon -there's always new ribbon calling my name!! And those shares are just perfect for me ... a little taste of pretty pattern and colors!

  40. I've been loving my Stickles. It's so fast, easy and CHEAP to add some glitz to your cards.

  41. I love, love, love my Primas!! and Yes I collect them!! I also love the Queen & Co. little teeny brads that come in the nail polish looking bottles! And...gelly roll glaze pens!! And, I love my little BeDazzler that heats up the glue on the little Swarovski jewels!! Bling is what it's all about baby!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yes, I love my Primas, also, but I want polk-a-dot Primas. Don't you? Ribbon, I love it too much; just had to add two more ribbon drawers to make a total of five drawers. Wow!
