Lawn Fawn Collection Added On!

Another newsletter from Custom Crops on 26 November 2013 stating that they are having Pink Tuesday sale with all items marked 25% off! They also stated that more than 1000 items marked 50% off! How could I resist myself not to take a peek at Custom Crops?!

Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card Dies
Well, guess what?! Some of my favorite Lawn Fawn stamp and dies are really at least 45% plus off the Custom Crops' usual non sale price! Please note that during non sale period, Custom Crops already have their price at 10% discount off the Manufacturer's Recommended Sale Price (MRSP). This is just so unbelievable! As two (2) weeks earlier I already have a purchase, I really have to keep my spending this time as little as possible or I burn a big hole in my wallet. Thus, I carefully selecting my most favorite and wanted products.

Lawn Fawn Woodgrain Backdrops
For this time, I have chosen to take Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card Dies which I wanted it so much as it really useful in many projects. Furthermore, this dies only cost me USD$7.57 which usually sell at USD$13.49! It is so worth now? Another stamp set that is also at incredibly cheap at this price is the Lawn Fawn Woodgrain Backdrops! I always wanted a wood grain background but most of the other stamp company have it in wood mounted which I do not prefer much due to space constraints. But when I got to know Lawn Fawn have it in clear stamp, this set when directly to my wish list and now I will own it! *big smile*

Lawn Fawn Winter Owl dies
Apart from that, I also grab a matching dies to my existing stamp set, the Lawn Fawn Winter Owl dies. After so many incident of sales from Custom Crops, I realize that some of the stamp sets will be on incredibly sale but not the matching dies during the same sale. But when the next sale came, the matching die will be incredibly on sale. Thus, moving forward, I will restrain myself to purchase the matching dies only when they are really on sale. I will never purchase both the stamp set and matching dies together as first, it kind of cost me more and secondly, I usually do not immediate use the stamp and if I am to use the stamp, I can go without the dies first.

I finalized the order on 27 November 2013 and after about a week later, 05 December 2013, Custom Crops informs that my parcel has been shipped. Well, cannot really blame them on the slowness in posting my parcel as it is almost Christmas time! I bet there sure will be lots of orders and rushing delivery.

Finally, about a week and a half later, today, my items are here! I guess I gotten the most of the pattern paper samplers on this order (perhaps it is because of Christmas season as well). These nine (9) pieces of pattern paper samplers are based on Christmas theme. Well, it is definitely useful for some Christmas cards project which I hope I can make more next year before the holiday!

Another Custom Crops newsletter mentioning that they are having stamping, ink and ribbon sale. I did not put up a high hope as it says stamping which means can be stamping tools and not the stamp sets. Anyhow, I hop over to Custom Crops for a peek, just in case. :P

Well, well, well. Stamp sets are on sale as well! Guess what? Some of the Lawn Fawn stamps are just incredibly cheap! Just like the Critters in Costume which only cost USD$7.50! I guess Custom Crops have it on sale due to the Halloween was over.

Critters in Costume Stamp Set
Although Critters in Costume is so incredibly cheap, I have some hold back on these set as most of the images are mean for Halloween. I have doubts whether to purchase this set or not. I did some research if I can use these images for non Halloween projects. There are and I started to imagine how each images can be used for non Halloween projects. Finally, I made up my mind to have this set.

However, the Critters in Costume Lawn Cuts or the matching dies are double the price of the stamp set in which I have doubts again. After much consideration, I decided to have the matching dies as well as it really save me a lot of time for fussy cutting. Not to mention save a lot of time especially for mass produce cards (well, how many times I ever made mass produce card?).

As there is room (budget) for one or two items, I have selected the Flying By stamp set and matching dies. I been wanting this set for a while but did not purchase it due to I give priority to the stamp sets I need to use first. I always says that this set can wait. Furthermore, the price of this set not so on sale previously.

I made my payment on 15 November 2013 and the items was delivered on 21 November 2013. It takes Custom Crops longer a bit this time to ship my items as I believe there are lots of orders which rush for the Christmas projects. The items was addressed to my new house. Speaking of new house, I was three (3) days away of moving in but I have yet to fully pack all the stuffs in the boxes! Instead, I am still shopping for my craft stuffs!
