SimonSaysStamps Haul!

My order from simonsaysstamps just arrived! I am in heaven!!! I tweeted about this but I had to share those beauties with you here also!

So here are some quick photos of what I have in my table. Don’t you just love that cellophane bag sound?!

Some of the new stamps I got by “Paper Smooches”, cute little chipboard sets by “Maya road” and some dies from “My Favorite things”!

Gelatos in a gift box! A collection of all the available colors plus blending tools and the coolest water color brush ever!

and here is the watercolor brush included in the kit

my new distress markers (Oh I’ve been waiting for those babies like crazy!) and some re-inkers

new paper pads … I always get the 6×6 size, they are the best for cardmakers and I just love all those pads I got this time! Great color combinations for spring and summer! Also i got lots of Hemptique cord sets, because I could’t resist them! LOL!

I am not posting any more photos … adhesives, glue dots, punches etc… are not as exciting as the above!

Being in Greece makes it difficult to get the products you want from the scrapbooking companies you love. Especially since shipping rates from USA to Europe are ridiculously expensive!

BUT, since I found SimonSaysStamps nothing seems to be a problem any more.

They have everything a cardmaker wants, their customer service is amazing, they ship FREE to Europe if you reach a certain amount of $ and the packaging is as good as it gets. Never got a product damaged or squashed although the parcels travel half the globe. So I find that it’s a good value to get a lot of staff at once and take advantage of the free shipping than making lots of small orders.

OK, that’s it for today, I need to get my self to my craft room and start playing! I am making a video for Sunday using these goodies 😉

  9. I’m sort of new to your videos and blog and love both by the way…
    I am not so jealous of the haul part…I’M JEALOUS ABOUT THE GREECE PART! I went to Athens and Crete for a month when I was 15 and fell in love with ever Greek boy I laid my eyes on! 🙂

    But I am a bit envious of your haul, too….! 🙂

    Wow! That’s a lot of product…I’m eagerly awaiting the inspiration I’ll get from your creations. How do you sleep at night after getting such a great collection of goodies? Do you dream about what you’ll do with all of it? I wouldn’t be able to sleep. I’d have to go “play” and create until my eyelids refused to stay open!

  11. Ooooohhh some of that stuff looks so exciting! Especially the gelatos! Cannot wait to see what magic you’ll make with this stuff! I love Simon Says Stamp too, my wish list is a mile long but every once in a while I get to whittle it down a bit 😉 Enjoy your goodies!

    Vicky – I love your stash!! Wow. I LOVE gelatos and have about 5 of them. And I just bought the Konnichiwa 6×6 pack this week. Great minds think alike I guess. Or should I say we ‘need’ the same stuff.
    Have a fun day using it all.

    Well this IS interesting to know. Do you have a problem with the VAT though? I’ve ordered from companies in the States before and after I ended up paying the VAT it was more expensive than if I’d just ordered from Europe. My favorite is a French company, Scrapmalin.com, they have some great specials. The site is only in French or German though.

    Just had to comment, because I absolutely LOVE the cellophane sound. But only on crafting items. I’m actually pretty sound sensitive, but when it’s crafting goodies, it makes me giddy!
