Shopping Trip

Well, I made it out today to check out the sales at the craft stores.  Here's my haul from Joann's.  Everything was on sale and I had an extra 10% off on my total purchase, so it was under $20 for all this.  The red & green card and envelope sets were worth it alone at only $1.99/set.  Now I'll be prepared for card making for next Christmas. 
Then I went to Michael's, and I think I did even better there.  They had all their holiday stuff at 60% off and I used a 50% coupon on the MS double edged punch, got some pretty ribbon, stickers, rubber stamps, glitter pens, tags (they're so cute, it's hardly worth making them yourself for 24-ct at 1.19 sale price!), note cards (that's the dark blue and green squares--they look like a cable knit sweater), and 2 chipboard books.  All the items that were usually $1.00 were only $.40!  Plus red and white #10 envelopes, and a 2011 planner.  Great bargains, and only spent $23 there!


  1. Great haul!! Have fun creating with it! Happy New year to you! Carri :)

  2. Yay for bargains! I spent all my after holiday money on clothes so I didn't hit any of the after Christmas sales. Maybe next year :)

  3. Hi Pat - thanks for visiting my blog and becoming a follower - I really appreciate it :). The cat card you are lookin for is on either the cricut sampler cart (I have this one) or you can find it on zooballoo I think. The sampler is great because you have a little bit of everything to start with. The cartridge came with the machine when I bought it in November.
    When I cut the cat for the card, I cut two shadows and glued them together at the top. good luck and happy new year to you :)

  4. Thank you so much for visiting & becoming a follower of my blog. I'm jealous of your haul. You asked about the MS punch I used on a project. I think it's just called "Pine Branch". I first bought the McGill brand punch which is just like it & I hated it. It's so hard to use, but the MS one punches beautifully and costs less too.

  5. Hey Pat you made out for sure!! I think I better get my but out thereand shop!! Although I better clean my craft room first! lol Oh by the way, I have the video up on my blog, the "before" video. The before I clean.LOL I hope to have the "after" up by the end of the weekend!! Please check it out, I could use the encouragement in case I try to sit down and watch some football or something!!LOL But Congrats again on the Haul You made out like a bandit,
    Happy New Year,
