I just received my goodies and I'm so excited, I love all of them!
K & Company Bailey 30x30 paper pad, 36 two-sided papers, classic flowers and paisley designs in rich colors, really beautifull.
Also K & Kompany Hopscotch Girl 30x30 paper pad, 36 two-sided papers, really yummie colors and designs, I adore this pad.
Finally I bought a cardstock pack, Core'dinations Elements Super Assortment, http://www.coredinations.com/index.php/products/super-assortments/ , I can't wait to try it and find out what I can do with the colored core, definitely a little sanding or even tearing, who knows!
Now, ordering 12x12 paper pads or cardstock packs does not come cheap if you live in Greece, since delivery costs quite a bit when you order them from abroad, even when I'm buying from ebay. So, that's what I do:
On ebay, I choose a european site, for example ebay.co.uk. Then, I search for the desired object and on the tab "Preferences" -> "Location" I choose "European Union", since these items are heavy and large in size and even if I find something at a good price at ebay.com, there is the risk to pass through the greek customs, and if it does, well, that's a sad story...
Choosing European Union in the preferences, there is not such danger.
Besides ebay, there are a few (that I at least know) online retailers, in Europe, that I use, and recently I discovered two french sites:
la fourmi creative 2 paper pads (36 sheets each), a cardstock assortment (80 sheets) and an album, all 12x12 inches, and the delivery cost was 12 euros, delivered to my door (and not at the post office) 7 days after the day I ordered them.
Another aspect is that they have promotions and sales quite often, for example each K & Company paper pad cost me about 10 euros, I think it is a really good price.
If you happen to know and trust an online retailer in Europe that delivers to Greece, you're welcomed to share it with me!
