Have you bought anything scrappy related that you love this month? I bought an old library card catalogue that is going to store my pictures. I just have to find the perfect spot for it.

That's adorable!

 

I've only purchased ink for my printer, but my favorite part is that I ordered it from Canon and they sent me tons of free printer paper. Like, so much that I had to ask someone else to carry the box up to my studio for me because it was so heavy.

I purchased a few brushes from Anna Aspnes and got a free mini kit---cause I spent more than $20!

That library catatlog box is gorgeous!!!

 

I haven't bought anything just for Calvinball unless you count the page protectors I had to order and the glue refills I had to buy to keep up the pace. 

 

And to pick up the glue refills, I had to stop at the LSS, where I picked up the new SS Domestic Bliss collection (which I have used on a few pages) and some Christmas foil papers I got at 50% while I was there...

What a great buy!  No new purchases here, other than tape.  I'm trying to work through some of my supplies now so that I can buy new ones before a retreat in May.

Haven't bought anything as great as that card catalog! Just some Scoretape, glue dots, and printer ink. And paw print stickers for my kitty page. Oh, wait - I did buy something great - the new Cricut Expore Air 2! (How could I forget? Maybe cause I haven't even taken it out of the box yet - too busy with Calvinball!) I had been eyeing it, but thought it was too expensive for me right now, but then it was on HSN on craft day for a good price - best part is they have flex pay! And very good shipping costs to Alaska! Yay!

I might just covet that library catalog!!  :frogwink:

 

Not scrappy purchases here! My scrap room is too cluttered as it is. I'm trying to clear some more space in it while I'm in spring cleaning mode. :cheerleader:

Congratulations on your new purchase!  I have the Explore Air and love it!  I use it for almost all of my pages.

I have the Expression and really wanted a WiFi machine so I could stop hauling my computer into the craft room. I also just made a new spot for it that makes it easier to use - between that and the new machine I'm sure I'll be using it all the time, too!

I love your card catalogue! I've bought a few new things this month, but my biggest purchase was a set of the new Distress Oxide inks. I'm really loving them and hope to play with them some more this weekend.

The only things I have purchased are adhesive and a cute pack of baker's twine with 12 different colors from Michael's. I love using twine on my layouts but I only have two colors. This pack is just what I wanted!

I have been to Tuesday Mornings twice since I started thinking about Calvinball last month.  I have tried to only pick up add-on items from lines I already knew I had.  I only partially succeeded.  Then last week I totally failed when I picked up a humongous paper pad from Paige Evans Pink Paislee Fancy Free line.  It's 48 single sided sheets so I am toying with the idea of using it for planner pages.  Such happy patterns!!

I've picked up a few things from Tuesday Morning and Michael's but my favorite things are my IO dies from my LSS.  I got tired of the feathers I made from my punch so I bought a page of paper with feathers and planned to fussy cut them (which I did for a few layouts) but I saw a gorgeous die set with three open feathers (guess that's what you call them -- just the outline, open in the middle) and I've gone crazy cutting scraps with them.  Now I will forever need feathers on every layout.  I also got my pre-ordered Distress Oxide inks last week and I've used them every day since.  

 

But my FAVORITE purchase was my GIS membership and Melissa Shanhun's Digi Scrapping class for ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS, which I definitely am.  So I will dig deep into Debbie's massive store of resources and upgrade (and learn?) Photoshop Elements, and take Melissa's class in April.....  But I'll still keep cutting feathers to decorate my digi pages....maybe.

I believe that's the collection Traci Reed designed for Simple Stories. I CT for her . . . I would love to have this one digi.

Everyone is so helpful around here . . . you will LOVE digi scrapping in PSE!

I purchased quite a bit of digi supplies. I think my favorite kit was this one, though:
