The big AliExpress.com shopping log
The month of December is and remains an expensive month with Sinterklaas and Christmas. So I thought it was time for a big AliExpress shopping log. Because a lot of things on AliExpress are so cheap, really cheap, you save a lot of money. Well, if you don't buy too much ;-).
NB! Shopping at AliExpress.com
Shop on AliExpress is something different than you are used to. It is a kind of Chinese bol.com. Would you like to know more about how it works and what you should pay attention to? Then read what I wrote earlier article about AliExpress.
My purchases in this large AliExpress.com shopping log
On AliExpress the offer varies really quickly. I indicate with my purchased products how I found them and what I paid. This is an indication.
There are many things you can buy on AliExpress aimed at getting married. Because two friends are getting married this year, I bought some things to use to make and decorate cards.
Various craft supplies
Of course I go to AliExpress a lot for craft supplies.
Price: €2.97, per 50 A4 sheets
Search term: Transfer foil laminator
After this I am very curious. For what you can make with it, see an earlier article of mine: The craft tip of 2017: Transfer foil incl. video
Bag for my Twinmarker from Action
Price: Bag for 80 pieces, € 2.54
Search term:Markers zipper canvas case
DO NOT buy, unfortunately one bad buy. There are 80 passes twin markers in, but that's really not the case.
I also like to use a lot of stamps for card making. Because ink pads, clear stamps and sponges are quite expensive in the Netherlands, I bought a few on AliExpress. I haven't tried it yet. Hopefully it's good :-).

Yes, and this is an example of AliExpress purchases that are slightly different than expected... I mean have you ever heard of Friemd ;-). Oh well, shame about the various spelling mistakes, but the unicorns are fun!
Cutting dies for Double Do XL
Metal cutting mills in the Netherlands are also very expensive. You have a lot of choice on AliExpress and the prices are very nice for these molds!
I've been doing a lot of embroidery lately. On AliExpress I saw many embroidery rings in various sizes. I ordered a few.
I see it in more and more stores, diamond painting. Small stones that you stick on a self-adhesive sheet.

I have already made this diamond painting, for the end result you can my first article about diamond paining read :-).
