Capture The Magic!

I got a parcel today... and I just have to share what I bought and, more importantly, WHERE I bought the goodies from.
As many will know, I am an absolute Christmas addict. Yuletide starts in November in this part of Southampton *lol*  This seasonal affliction also stretches to and includes the collection of scrapbook papers... and my 'have-to-have' paper for my upcoming project was the Bo Bunny Father Christmas collection. I had ordered 6x6 papers from a certain shopping channel, but was let down AGAIN by them, and so will never darken their stockroom door with an order ever again. I turned to the internet for solace... and discovered an online shop...
I'm not always too sure about ordering from online sites that I've never heard of before... but this one had such a good deal on the paper I wanted (per 12x12 sheet) as well as some stickers and rub-ons, that I just had to take a risk. I also ordered the DoCrafts/Papermania  stamp sets - "Baubles", "Stockings", and "Sleigh".  When my parcel arrived, the order included the creativity magazine I had already purchased... and the wonderful people at "Capture The Magic" had used the money-off coupons included in the magazine for the Docrafts stamps. How brilliant is that?!? My friend LouLou wanted a copy of the magazine anyway... so that was useful too! DoCrafts/Papermania have really outdone themselves this year... the Christmas papers are beautiful (bought them, used them... want some more! *lol*) and these stamps sets are such a bargain.
So, here's a selection of my bargains from the fantastic people at "Capture The Magic" in Soham, Cambs
I am going to love just looking at this lot... here's hoping I can actually cut into those papers and use them :)

How great to find a direct recommendation from you - can't beat personal experience when trying to find suppliers/retailers. Now, do I blame you when it's bread and jam for the rest of the week? Di xx

Ooooooooo, lovely goodies. DoCrafts really have "up'd their game" haven't they. I'm still looking at my stamps - hope to play more tomorrow LOL

Great when you find service of this quality from a retailer.
