New Stash for the New Year

So that's it then, the festivities over for another year and back to normality. I had a great time but it is quite nice to be getting back to normal, back into a routine of some kind. I've not been doing masses of scrapping, I can't really work out what I have been doing?? But I have managed to aquire some new stash!!

On Monday I popped in to check out the sale at Hobbycraft, it's usually so expensive I don't bother but I found a few bits in their sale last year plus I wanted to look at the wool so I went for a nosey. There wasn't much but I found all these bits for just 99p and most were reduced from £3/£4, not bad!
Today the postie brought my goodies from Papermaze, shame I hadn't waited cos apparently they have a sale on now but hey ho! I got a mix of October Afternoon papers and yet another sheet of Cherry Hill label stickers, think this is my third lot.
I bought a little bit of Christmassy stash cos I took some pics that I can't wait to scrap.
I couldn't resist these pretty bits and pieces.
And with all the wedding albums I'm gonna have to do I bought these romantic themed papers by Echo Park, they are LUSH! Can't wait to cut into these and have a feeling they won't last for the wedding albums!
And I actually have managed to create something. In Decembers gogo kit were two pockets by KI Memories, as I had lots of photos of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day I thought by using these pockets I could include a lot more photos into an album than I would be likely to scrap.
I'm really pleased with these two layouts and they look wicked side by side (and much better in real life!)
I have had some really exciting news this week but I have to keep it under my hat for a bit, watch this space!

ETA: In reply to Emma's comment, that's not a stamp in the background, just used sequin waste as a mask.
