Some good deals from Big Lots and Michaels....

I found this Heidi Grace paper at my local Big Lots yesterday. (I just love her designs) The snowflake paper and the green paper in the back along with the little birds are all shimmer flock paper. VERY nice... 15 sheets in a pack for... drumroll please... 1.00- these cost over a dollar a sheet in the stores. The other paper packs were 25 sheets for 1.00. Was so excited when I saw them that I bought I package of each design they had. Was speaking to the cashier and she told me that the scrapbooking stuff is boxed up in the warehouse with just random items in them and then each store gets 15 cases- and everybody could get different things. I am heading out to our other Big Lots today to see what they have.

My Micheals did not have a whole heck of a lot in the choice of 1.00 Studio G stamps but I did manage to find these 3- cute huh? The Halloween spools are American Crafts and were 1.00 as well and I am planning on making a Halloween word album and thought the little stickers were adorable for only .99 cents.

Everything you see here was a dollar each at Big Lots too. Even the ones that were marked 1.25 rang up 1.00. I love the Heidi Grace rubons and the printed Journal Prompts are so cute and only a dollar. The little easel in front I found at the Dollar Tree it was a package of two. The easel worked out great to take pictures of my cards this morning.

I just wanted to share my treasures. Everybody loves a great deal!

A Couple of Cards Made with the Gypsy...

The "True Love" card was made using the Gypsy and the new Gypsy Wanderings cartridge. I used lost of pop dots for added dimension. I'd have to say that this was the easiest card I have ever made- very simple to use the Gypsy. I think I can get used to it. A little adjusting after having used Design Studio for so long.
This card was made using my new Gypsy and it was the first time I used my Indie Art cartridge that I just had to have. :)
