WOYWW #270

Oh! Dear!  You have caught me out  - using up bits of left over paper ...
I have set myself the target of using up freebies given with magazines, I mean - why do I buy the magazines?  Because of the freebie .... I really am trying to save my money and not buy anymore stash but these magazine people .... well really!  What's a girl to do?
So I bought this magazine with all the 'sewing' embellishments & papers and have made the suggested cards.  I am now left with the rest of the paper pad, a few embellis and bits of paper sheets.  So I have punched out some flowers and butterflies out of the left overs and in my pot they go for future use.  
When I have cleared up the flowers I shall use some of the stamps given free with another magazine - well, two actually - BUT they are back copies which I managed to buy slightly cheaper .... I did save £2 buying them this way ...... does it count as saving money?

Why don't you share your desk with us .... we try not to laugh .... really, we do!

  1. I had to giggle about you purchasing magazines with freebies. I've done that but haven't now for ages. Looks like you've made good use of the scraps. Happy WOYWW!

  4. Me too, I've bought magazines just for the free gift, well you have to.
    Well done for trying to use up all the bits, like the pink and yellow card, very pretty.
    Thanks for visiting, the view form our window is such fun, watching the neighbouring cats posturing to one another.
