Hi everyone! I’m back with my top 5 favorite supplies for the month of February. Even though this month was fast and very cold, it was still a good month. Not much happened other than I turned 32 and won my first challenge! Also, I got brave and made Valentine chocolate lollipops, which is the first time ever I give away something edible that I made.
Not too bad for my first try!
And now, on to my top 5:
1. Brother XL2600I Sew Advance Sew Affordable 25-Stitch Free-Arm Sewing Machine
This was my birthday present from the hubby. I had been wanting this since I first saw it on Jennifer McGuire’s video My Favorite Crafty Things 2014 – Crafting Tools. My mom taught me how to sew when I was real young but I hadn’t touched a sewing machine since I was about 12 so I was a little nervous about sewing again, but this is real easy to use. I haven’t used it that much but I plan to change that soon.
2. Canson Cold Press 140lb Watercolor Paper
I’ve been trying to get more into watercoloring and I found this paper at Michael’s Craft Store. I bought this because it was a little cheaper than the Strathmore paper I had purchased previously and I have been real happy with it. Below is a picture of some watercolor airplanes I made (I used PTI’s Fly Away stamp and die set).3. WPlus9 Sunshine Layers Die
I added quite a few things to my WPlus9 collection this month and they just have the most awesome stamps and dies. This die comes with the matching stamp set, which I don’t have yet, but this can pretty much be used by itself. It has borders, a sentiment, and cute shapes. I love the stitched look, look at those clouds!
4. WPlus9 Unforgettable Stamp Set
Ok, how freaking adorable are those elephants?! I’m on an elephant kick right now, I also had another elephant stamp set on January’s top 5. Not only are the elephants great but the sentiments are also! Plus you get other little shapes in this set, not to mention, you can stamp your elephant to carry the balloon or flower, it can also wear a little bow or party hat. How do they come up with this stuff?!
5. Copic Multiliner Fine, Black, 4PC Set
I love cards that have doodling on them. Usually I only see lines drawn to frame a card but recently I saw this card on instagram and thought “I must doodle more!” I definitely need to practice some more with different doodles. I bought a Zig Millennium pen to play around with but then decided to splurge on this Copic set. I can’t help it, I’m addicted to anything Copic!
Well there you have it! I hope you guys keep checking back on my top 5 for each month, it’s a lot of fun trying to decide what to pick. I already ordered more stuff that I’m sure will make it into March’s list!
