Layout and haul #1

Good morning!
Today I'm sharing my first hauls! They are from Scrap & Hobby and Kristinas Scrapbooking and I ordered early from them because I bought albums and just added supplies so that I could get the free shipping. I bought three black postbound albums, 100 12''x12'' page protectors and cardstock (red, vanilla, kraft, yellow, aqua) and then I made some random finds that I thought I'd show you here!
They didn't have a style of papers that attracted my attention at neither shop but at Kristina's I found these two. That KaiserCraft collection with the farries was really cute but I decided that it would be hard to use with the kind of photos that I take, but I bought the cards because I thought the sentiments were really sweet and then I also got some ferries. The paper with the cars is from Karen Foster. The assorted doilies were a bargain and I thought they were cute and easy to use.
The Prima Marketing stencils I bought at Scrap & Hobby and the alphabet stencil at Kristina's.
At Kristina's I bought the pink paper pens and the very tiny alphastickers and hubby bought the Uniball Signo pens for me at an art store called Zinkvit, they should last a while :) I've been very pleased with the paper pens from Viva Decor that I already have and they give just the right "enamel dot effect" that I was looking for.

At Scrap & Hobby I got this as a gift! That was sweet, I think! I love that viewmaster reel!
When I had reached my goal of 50 layouts I went trough my stash of fairly new papers and made 20 "kits" with coordinating scraps of paper and I added some of those fairy cards that I just cut apart. I think that I found a couple of kits that will be really successful for my photos so if I can use atleast a couple of them I'll be happy.
In the top right corner of the photo above you can see a pink spot, that's the kit I started with! It is a background paper that I've painted myself and some scraps that had the same colors. I think the green card from Kaiser Craft fitted perfectly with the quirky photos of my kids and their aunt. I added some green washi to give the green card a bit more legitimacy amongst all the pink papers. The card sentiment will do as my title. It was fun to work with this type of design, I think I normally do my designs more to the left of the page =) 

Unfortunately I didn't scrap anything yesterday evening eventhough I was in the mood all day long, but bedtime with my oldest took like forever and that kind of killed all the inspiration I had going. I wish for better luck this evening. Perhaps I have a scrapbook package waiting for me =) 
Take care!
