In pirate talk that means, "Arg... I got good stuff!"
Last week my friend and I went to Big Lots and found so much scrapbooking stuff made by American Crafts and Heidi Grace for $1 and $2. We got paper, ribbon, rub-ons, flowers, chipboard, etc. and these really cool felt and foam alphabet stickers called Thickers. We went to 5 Big Lots and every store had something different. Of course I had to get one (or two) of everything!! Here is part of what I got:

The Goods
I wanted to use my new stuff to make a couple of cards. A couple of years ago I went to the scrapbook expo in Ontario. One of the vendors had this great deal on My Minds Eye paper pack set. It came with cardstock cut out pieces, double-sided cardstock and these cardstock frames. I knew I never would use the frames in layouts, but then later it dawned on me. Use them for my cards!! So I used my new ribbon, rub-ons,the Thickers and the mats.

Still trying to stamp some cards. I need to find some cute stamps.
Have a great week!

OMG! Your cards are so adorable! I bought those Thickers full price sometime back...grrr! I am totally going to swing by Big Lots on my way home from work this week, talk about a score on the scrap loot! Wow! I love all the little dimensional elements on your cards and how you think outside the box on each one and how they're so unique from one to the next, great job!

I love big Lots- they have some of the best craft stuff. Look at our haul- you made out great. With prices as good as that you can afford to take chances!
