Hey Little Magpie Grab Box Haul Feb 2016

Hello there! 

Today I wanted to share with you lovely lot the contents of my Hey Little Magpie Grab Box. I ordered this on Saturday night (20/02), it was posted on Monday (22/02) and I received it yesterday (23/02), I call that excellent customer service! I wanted to get this up pretty quickly to give you a chance to go and grab one while they are still in stock (here) if you like the look of mine. 

Obviously this is a mystery box so the contents of your may be very different to mine. The boxes cost £24.99 and shipping was £2.95.

So this is what I saw when I opened my box and doesn't just look so amazing! You get £75's worth of goodies in these boxes and you can really tell.

The box had a nice selection of thing, all of which I was happy with and think I can use in my crafty projects, whether that be on cards, scrapbook layouts or in my Project Life. 

In this picture on the left are some Heidi Swapp Coloring Cards. It is a pack of 12, one for each month with the year left blank which is great! If I don't use them this year I can save them, brilliant! I love both sheets of stickers, especially the pebbles collection, they will go great with my February photos that I am yet to scrap. The 6 pack of Gossamer Blue tags are also lovely and I really enjoy using tags in my scrapbooking. There were a couple of Christmas bits, some title cards and frames but I don't mind that, I actually still have some stuff from Christmas 2015 to scrap so I can use them in that or save for next year. There was also a couple of loose My Minds Eye paper bits both of which I can add to my stash and get used.
 [Products: Heidi Swapp Coloring Cards 12pk, Jillibean Soup Priceless Banner Bites, Fancy Pants Timbergrove Title Pieces (4), Pebbles Repeat Phrase Stickers (32), Elle's Studio Noel Frame (6), Gossamer Blue Gramercy Road by One Little Bird Die Cut Tags (6), MME Cut & Paste Adorbs "Be" 4x6 Journal Card, MME Miss Caroline Dilly Dally "Best" Title]

This next selection made me very excited, I got stencils and a background stamp! After opening the stencils, I'm not sure how likely I am to use the patterns, thy are quite flourish like which isn't my normal style, but I think they might look pretty used in the background of something in a subtle colour. The stamp made me drool a little, I have a couple of background stamps already and they are great for stamping and embossing to use as the background of a card or for adding pattern to a plain project life card. 

The Studio Calico stitched pockets I love, you can't really tell from the photo but they have acetate windows so whatever you put inside wont fall out. I am tempted to turn a few into shaker pockets and stitch up the top edge. I also got a self inking Thanks stamp by Pebbles, I've seen these about but never owned one so looking forward to having a play! The shaped paperclips by Alison Kreft are another of my favourite things in the box, they are silver airplanes and black cameras both of which I will be able to use in my crafting. 

I'm not so keen on the colours of that washi tape, I can probably use it for halloween layouts, but not really sure what else orange and black will go with. And that random chipboard flourish, not sure what I will use that for but it can either be added to my stash or a RAK package.

I was so happy to get a 12"x12" sticker sheet and that CRATE PAPER VELLUM! Oh my, I felt so lucky! I got back into scrapbooking recently and fell in love with the Confetti collection by Crate Paper but unfortunately it isn't sold in my places anymore, so to get this in my box was amazing. I can sense that I'll hoard it for a while before I actually use it.

And finally, I got a package of 25 12"x12" scrapbook papers. I was very impressed with this bundle as there wasn't a single paper that I pulled out where I didn't like either side, they are all very usable patterns. I tried to put them with my favourite side facing up and when I took the photo I realised the colours actually all go together really well!  A detailed list of all the brands is below.
