Guilty Pleasures

Before we proceed with the unveiling of the contents of my balikbayan boxes, I have several disclaimers to make:
  • Not all two and a half boxes contained my stuff. Neither are they all filled with scrapbooking materials.
  • I bought these items intermittently in a course of one year. I'm sure that I spent less than most of you did in the past year.
  • Some of the contents were given my sister and friends, and I am grateful to them for indulging me in this hobby.

I counted 3 Sizzlits alphabets (Funky Brush, Cherish, Funky Brush), 3 original alphabars (uppercase Pigeon-Toed Charms, lowercase Doodle Block, complete set of Doodle Tag), 21 various shapes die-cuts, 2 Sizzix Bigz (I hope they work with my Cuttlebug), 3 Sizzlits, 3 embossing folders. Where in my scraproom will I find room for these?

Three K.I. Memories kits worth P500 each, containing over 600 pieces of paper, stickers, and ribbons. The design may not be the latest trend but this would be great for making albums.


Provocraft slabs, again, good for making coordinating albums and cards.


DCWV stacks - Once Upon A Time, Old World, Far East, Glitter, Pocketful of Posies and Luxury Stack. I am loving the papers of the Luxury Stack so much that I wish I had more wedding photos.


Making Memories and Li'l Davis foam stamps, self-adhesive foam stamps (certainly will come useful to my goal of making more LOs with dimension), foam flowers - lots of them.


Pearl Ex powders (can't wait to experiment more with these powders), rubber stamps, Stickles, Martha Stewart glitters (yummy), ribbons, scissors, tool kit, corner puncher, acrylic paints that I can let my KiDS have as they were so cheap.


Manang Marissa also sent me these unused plastic test tubes (she used to work as a clinical researcher). Perfect for storing glitters, UTEE, embossing powders that you plan to share. If you want some of these, just leave a comment here. I think I can spare five per person and I'm sure Manang won't mind. Good only while supplies last.

See, not much, isn't it? I know some scrappers who have more stuff in their boxes. Tee-hee.
