Who wants to see my Big Lots Bargains?

So, Michelle at www.scrappinwithmybug.com lured me to the dark side by showing me the video of her Marshals (we don't have one) and Big Lots bargains. So Kristen and I run to Big Lots all excited and boy were we disappointed. NO Martha Stewart stuff except boring ole glue sticks.  However, we did get lots of cool paper.

Also on this video is a sneak peek at one of the 3 composition books I need to do... is it yours?  Hoping to get all my blingage and prizes mailed off this week (but not tomorrow)

Hugs and Chirps my Krazies!

  1. You'll learn very quickly that Big Lots can be a big hit or a big miss! You just never know what you might be lucky enough to find and then the next time you go back it could be nothing but junk. Don't give up just because you were disappointed the first time. The second time may be the charm!

  3. I bought a few packs of the open stock paper packs when we were on vacation in Erie, Pa. They are made by DCVW. I bought paper yesterday and kept yelling at my husband to look at the cute paper. He doesn't get it.

  6. Every time I watch a video about someone's BG haul, I run to my store and am disappointed. I do love paper though, so I may make a trip tomorrow and check it out. Thanks for sharing!
    And I LOVE my book! Thanks for the sneak peek! I can't wait!

  8. I scored big only once at Big lots. I bought tons of Martha Stewart paper, stickers, rub ons, and Scotch quick dry adhesive. At that time, I also cleaned up on the Cuttlebug folders. Try Tueday Morning if they have them in your area. They carry a lot DCWV stickers and paper packs.

  9. I'm so jealous, it looks like you walked away with an awesome haul!!!!! :) Sometimes I wish we lived closer to a city so I could look for deals like that. Although my hubby is glad we don't because I would spend most of his paycheck on paper. :)

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:




Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 


My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


 Ho…

You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
