My embellishment haul!

Hello! Wanna see what I got in the mail?!? Here is my embellishment haul for my mid-challenge replenishment! 

First I have a order from Pysseltagen, a Swedish webshop that I like alot. They have a rather large variation and I like the things they carry. I'll start with some tools. I bought three rolls of 9 mm double sided adhesive, each roll is 30 meter. The price was really good, like US$ 2 for 100 feet of tape. I bought three fluid chalks, the brown that I use all the time. I like these from Prima but I don't like that they crumble when you've used them for a while. They still have chalk left but the pads wear out and you get small bits and pieces of the pad everywhere on your project if you're not careful. I also bought five small bottles that I plan to use for my home made acrylic paint splash. The ones I use now have a metal lid and they get stuck all the time and I don't like that.

My goal was to buy five or six Paper Pens from Viva Decor in different colors and use instead of enamel dots but Pysseltagen didn't have all the colors I was interested in. I bought yellow, green and blue. They had Smooch on sale so I bought the silver glitter one and an aqua colored Stickles. I found binder rings for a really good price and I think I'll use them for keeping together embellishment bags. The little jar with white lid holds a multitude of green and blue bling stones.

Since I couldn't find all the paper pens I wanted I bought some inexpensive adhesive half pearls in easy to use colors.

Last I bought foam squares, white doilies, sticky notes and some brads.

My second order was from Sirap i Paris which is one of my favorite Swedish web shops since their stock is unusually up to date for being Swedish. They had just gotten in the wood veneers from Studio Calico again and I ordered as soon as I saw it. I have yet another package of the little potty people coming in the mail next week, she had forgot to put in two as I had ordered. I also ordered the Amy Tangerine Bits. They'll be fun to use with layering! 


I'm thinking of ordering something digital, like journaling cards or smaller cut out elements (tags, labels, shapes etc). For National Scrapbooking Day I used the free printables they had for the challenge at Two Peas in a Bucket and I loved those! I'm going to look for freebies and if I don't find any that I like I might try and buy some from Two Peas or American Crafts. I have not done that before. Can you give me any tips?

Happy Swedish National Day!
