I must have!

In my 20's I was obsessed with clothes, shoes and makeup. Now, like many of you, my passion has turned to scrapbooking supplies. I will gladly buy my clothing at Target (on sale!) to allow myself more scrapbooking purchases. Here are my latest obsessions...

I worked at Archiver's for almost 3 years and never really got into the Quickutz "craze" Now that I'm gone from my generous discount and access to open dies I have fallen in love with their alphas. I like to cut many of my letters and titles on my Cricut but have found that for little teeny tiny letters - it's a pain. Ripping and shredding almost every time. The QK 4x8 alpha dies are quick, easy to cut and almost always the right size. You can even run these dies through a Ellison Big Shot. Here are a couple of my favorites.

Chicken Noodle is the best! And at only 12.99 it's a steal. I used this on my layout titled "Last Day" from the August Kit gallery.

Chemistry usually is 39.99 but can be found online and at Archiver's for 19.99. I used this font on my Safety Town Layout last month.

Moonlight is another favorite.

Some other items that have my eye this month are:

Martha Stewart Loopy Punch. Found mine at Michael's with a 40% off coupon. Score! Check out our very own Michelle's cute layout using these punches.

Thanks for letting me share my lastest "needs". For those of you who watch HSN, Thursday beginning at midnight and continuing throughout the day will be a "Scrapbooking" day on the network. Three Birds will be showcasing new products - several of which just happen to be kits I helped design. I'm pretty pumped to see how they look on air.

I agree -- I love those alphas if only they weren't so expensive!

Love all the choices here!
