My friend Lea called me last night to let me know Aussie Scrap Source were open to the public this weekend. Their warehouse is only 15 mins from my house and I've ALWAYS wanted to check it out, so I was pretty excited! They were selling off old stock at less than half RRP. It was FRANTIC out there this morning! Imagine a zillion women armed with big plastic tubs, crammed into skinny aisles within a tiny room. It was crazy! After lining up for the checkout for an hour I got some great stuff for a bargain. I was stoked! Lea and I were there just after they opened at 9am this morning. I went back at 4pm this afternoon because they had overcharged me. It wasn't as crazy then, but there was still a long line to pay. There was hardly a dent in the stock, even tho they sold HEAPS of stuff. There was still SO much stuff there. I was tempted to buy more but I couldn't face lining up again, just got my money back!
I'll leave you with this layout which is in the current Aussie Reader Gallery of Creating Keepsakes. I did it for the Scrapboxx Design Team comp last year and the challenge was to use 1 product 3 ways. I chose scrapbook tape and I've actually used it 5 ways in this layout, including using it as a hinge. The photo lifts to reveal journalling.
Have a great weekend!
