scrappy loot for the week !

( you can click for a larger view) 

Thought I'd post something different for a change here. 
How about what a little scrappy loot looks .
We had an overwhelming choice of new arrivals 
on our sunny shores this week . 
& I brought these home . 

Always nice to try out a new brand ! 
Check out the entire line here
No embellishments arrived with the papers 
so damage was limited to just papers ! phew ! 
My fave cardstock brand, Core'dinations , has printed patterned papers on their unique cardstock now - 
& two collections were here - 


& I bought just one token piece of Hambly doily transparency ! ;) 

Here's a sneaky peekie of next week's Scrappiest's sketch 58 layout 
featuring Prima ! I tried out a little of the new Victorian Velvet distress ink here. 
Soft & pretty for sure !

& check out this glimmer misting on a wooden album cover 
that I was busy with earlier this week .
(will post when I have more time ) 
I used new Heidi Swapp Viva Pink & Electric Blue
 & an older GM Lemon Meringue .
Love how the colors blended where they met . 
This was inspired by Heidi Swapp's class here.
