Addicted to stationery!!

Is this something that comes hand in hand with crafts? Im not sure about you but i almost need to breathe in a brown bag when im in an office supply store or ( still my heart!) the stationary section of TK Maxx or Home bargains! My ambition is to hit Japan one day as they hold the motherload of paper goodies!! LOL

These are some of the bargain goodies ive managed to pick up lately...
Packs of 8 cards from Home Bargains £1 each...
TK Maxx £7.99 reduced to £2 (arent those sentiments just fab!!)...
I love these boxed cards from TK Maxx - £2.99 a box...
Buddhist Mandala Colouring kit - book explaining all about the symbols is so beautiful! £5.99 instead of the retail price of £18.99!! Also i bought a little box that i thought had flower note cards in reduced to £2 but it is actually a boxed set of 4 notebooks! :)
Plus look at this gorgeous canvas i picked up at the market on Saturday!! Its about 4ft tall and was only £10 - it may only be a print but i couldnt even buy a blank one for that price so im really pleased with this stall and they had loads of different ones including those fab camper van canvases etc!! I cant wait to get the boys bedrooms painted again and decorated! :)

My mini album using the Mama-Razzi line from Bo Bunny was featured on their blog on Friday - i love it and im really pleased i made all the photos black and white as it blends in with the fab colours of the paper a lot more :) Thanks for all the sweet comments over on the blog too as i know a lot of you are big Bo Bunny fans :)

This weekend is my second feature on the Squiggle Stamps blog and i made a card for Ethans birthday (not until December but no problems in planning ahead! lol) using the little boy dressed in a Dinosaur outfit! He is too cute, remember to go check out their blog and apply for the design team position before the end of June!!


  1. Deb that might be a print, but is there a signature?? I really like the style and when I was on the cruise they were selling ones very similar by Rachel someone or other for £150 plus per print.

  2. That print on the canvas is lovely - you were very lucky to spot it. Where's it going to go?

  3. I too adore stationary Debs...any sort, notebooks, cards, folders, dividers, pens, paper, card oooh everything ...
    I just cannot pass a shop and OH is great as he'll tootle out, buy me loads of stuff (cheap)and most of it I haven't used lol...but I just love it so xx

  4. Ohhhhh love this post.
    OMG that print canvas is gorgoues. What details does it have the top as I am unable to read it

  5. ooh that painting reminds me of the lovely painted row of houses in Alnmouth.

  6. I have to admit I'm am v addicted to stationary, I just can't walk past it. Anything will do, but I do love notebooks :) x

  7. You've found some great bargains. Loving that canvas! x

    That canvas is gorgeous just love it - and yes I am a bit of a stationery junkie too

    Loving your Bo Bunny Mama razzi mini book

    I am in the middle of making a mini book from those papers for my nephews 18th - am going to pinch your idea to make the photos black and white I think - if I can do that as they are all pre digital pics I will have to scan into my computer. I dont have the luxury of having all of the chipboard and stickers and am struggling a bit to find matching embellies that are masculine - with boys you cant just pile on the flowers and ribbons

  9. Debbie, just love your mini book with the Bo Bunny papers. I can honestly say when I first saw this new range, I though, no just don't like it. Felt the same about most of the new ranges apart from the Roughin' it. But I think I may be having a change of heart seeing what you have done with them.

    Just may have to put an order in now!

    Can't believe Evie is only 7 weeks old. seems like she was born so long ago! Hope you are all happy & well

    hugs Can x

  10. Oh that canvas is brilliant Debbie. That's my sort of place - make believe.

  11. Crikey the colours on the mini book are terrific - just adore those tones. Love the dinosaur card - have I got that digi image - who's it by my darling?
