Buying Spree ...

Hi Everybody,

I have been visiting Amazon a lot lately and taking a look at some of the crafting goodies on there. And so I decided to treat my self to a few of them and they arrived over the weekend. They have been super quick as some things I only ordered Friday and yesterday, Sunday they where delivered.
So here is a picture of some of the items that I have bought.
I already have the Gansai Tambi Water Colours which I love using and you will have seen them often in my videos. And I have bought now the Starry Colours which are a beautiful collection of golds 

I also ordered the case of finger daubers which are really useful in applying small areas with paint, inks or chalks. There are 40 daubers in a case and they are items I use a lot. 

The tub is Transfer Gel which is used with foils and I am going to be doing some videos with them in the next few weeks.

But the special treats that I thought I deserved are the Teflon Bone Folder and the Crystal Katana pick up tool for pearls and gemstones.

I am sure that they will be seen regularly in my videos and I know that I am going to enjoy working and playing with both in the future. I have more items still to come and I will share them with you once they arrive

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Morning Christina, a fab lot of goodies I bought the Krystal katana when I first saw Olga use it and it is the best tool for picking up pearls I have tried lots in the past and they didn't work but this does.

  4. Those items all look as if they will be really handy. The sticky pick up gizmo is great for picking up small bits of die cuts if you are into popping them back into the spaces left (often cutting two in contrasting colours and mixing and matching).

  5. SHOPPING!!! How fun and it looks like you picked some goodies! Is the Teflon b I NE folder better than one from ScorBboard or Martha Stewart? I have that same set of daubers and really like them! I would like to hear how you like the other tool too. Enjoy!

  6. Enjoy playing with your new toys Christina.
    Love Val in Spain xxx

  7. I've never bought craft from amazon Christina you have had a good shop brill goodies thanks for sharing
    Love June horrocks xxxxxx

  8. Great news that you are starting to demo foiling. I have very recently bought some transfers and foil and so far had both good and not so good results! Havent seen transfer gel so thats a another possibility-once I know what it is LOL.xx

  9. Hi Christina

  10. Amazon is great for finding items cheaper. I have the teflon bone folder and love it! I make a lot of boxes and bags so this teflon bone folder will not leave those nasty shiny marks on your paper where others do. I no longer use my Martha Stewart, Stampin' Up, or any other bone folder.

  11. Hi Christina,
    Great shopping!Looking forward to see you using these goodies.

  12. Hi Christina,
    I'm very anxious to see how you'll be using the starry colours. I just know it will be fantastic.

  13. enjoy. I buy from Amazon as many sites give free P & P which helps a lot. Diana x

  14. Interesting buys. Look forward to the foiling technique and like the look of the daubers. I have some but cN never have too many.

  15. Hello Christina,
    Fascinating things you've bought and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on them.

  16. I love my Crystal Katana Pick Up Tool and the stamp shammy but only bought the gold foil last week and not yet had a 'play'


  17. I can't wait to see what you do with your new goodies. What fun. I have had some Transfer Gel on my table for about a month, but still haven't used it. I think I might wait to see how yours turns out, then I will try it. LOL
