Paperchase Haul

paperchasehaulheader

When I made this order I started out planning to get three or four things but my basket kind of grew. It turned into a bit of a mix of everything really, though since taking photos I have a feeling that quite a few bits may be used in future photos, even though only one or two things were bought for this. I never thought I’d be buying things to use as props but I want to work on my photography for my blog so have been browsing more home decor sections and it’s very hard not to buy a load of things I don’t need to decorate my room.

This haul is from Paperchase, I think most of this is available in a lot of their stores, even the smaller one near me has quite a bit of this, but it is all still available online. I do love their stationery and always go to them when it comes to Christmas decorations but I haven’t really looked at them for décor and I could have bought a lot more.

Do Crafts Goody Bag: Gorjuss

A couple of weeks ago I went to The Range near me and found this Goody Bag from Do Crafts full of Gorjuss crafting goodies. I bought one of their bags before a month or so ago and did a post on it, it was great value and I’ve used quite a few bits from it but this one was so pretty I had to get it. I do love the style of Gorjuss products, the colours and the patterns are really nice and very few of these products have the girls on them that are the trademark style of the company so they’re good to use for anything and anyone.

This bag costs £15 and the Do Crafts website has a range of their Goody Bags as well as other products and ideas for designs to do with the products in the bags. I can’t see this one on there but I have found all of the products to see their RRP and the value of the bag does come out at about £32.50, give or take a few pence. The other Goody Bags available can be found here, I’m definitely considering getting a couple of them, the Christmas one looks good and I might actually get Christmas cards made in time to send them out this year.

This review is of the Gorjuss Goody Bag, there are seven different products in it, all of them art and crafty and great for card making but I’m considering using one of them for jewellery, I’ll see how it goes and maybe do a post on what I actually do with them some time.

Recent Purchases: The Range

Processed with Moldiv

I’m not sure whether The Range is an international store but in the UK it sells pretty much everything to do with the home and gardening like décor, furniture, plants, pet supplies, arts and crafts bits and lots of different foods, I just saw some American chocolate in there this time I haven’t seen before. The main things I’ve bought are art and crafty things as they have good names for less than other stores I’ve bought from and their picture frames are great value and so far all of the ones I’ve got are good quality.

The main thing I went in for was a picture frame for a piece of art I got for Christmas from mum and dad which I love but it did need a frame to put it up on the wall. I did end up almost getting some more wall hanging things as they have some great metal ones with antique looking signs on them and some really nice mirrors. When I move out I’m definitely going there for bits. I also ended up looking in the art and craft bit and got a set of brushes and a discount card making set which was half price. They do have an online store but there isn’t the same range as available in store as I can’t find either the paint brushes or the goody bag, though they do have a lot of picture frames and home décor bits on there.
