Yesterday and today I went to Michael's and A. C. Moore to see what I could find on sale. I had coupons and gift certificates in hand. I didn't take photos of everything, but here are some of the items I found on sale.
3- 12 x 12 pads of Christmas/Holiday scrapbook paper on sale for $3.99-$5.99 each at Michael's. Originally they sold for $14.99-$19.99 each.
a smaller Anna Griffin pad of scrapbook paper for $2.49 at Michael's
a package of felt embellishments, wings, and paper clips also from Michael's
The HUGE plastic snowflake is clear...50 cents, and a pack of small white snowflakes for 50 cents. Found the big snowflake at the Dollar Tree and the small snowflakes came from Michael's.
Tim Holtz embellishments numbers, floral, charm adornments and word sticks
3 packages of Tim Holtz texture fades and 1 package of Sizzix all on sale for 1/2 price at $5 each package of 2. So, not bad, $2.50 for each texture fade. Pretty good sale for these at A. C. Moore, don't you think? The selection was pretty picked over, but I found the following Rays and Retro set, December calendar and Holiday words set, Collage and Notebook set, and the Sizzix...Diamonds and Snowcap set.
I also bought a Halloween cricut cartridge for $19.99 at Michael's.
I found some strands of beads in the $1 bins at A. C. Moore. I also picked up 2 craft magazines with coupons at A.C. Moore.
I had a fun 2 days of shopping, and now I have to find the time to play with all of my new stuff.
Have you hit the stores looking for bargains? What did you find that made you happy?
Since I was out most of the day...thank goodness I have leftovers that we can have for supper tonight.
P.S...update...12-30-2010...I found at another A C Moore craft store a Tim Holtz brick/woodgrain texture fade embossing plates.
