A Haul, A Sketch and another little Sneak Peek...

Hi! Just stopping by with a quick post tonight to tell you about an amazing clearance at Michaels (if you haven't already heard through the grapevine)! Michaels has the Slice machines on clearance for 19.99 and the cartridges are 4.99!!!  Do I need another die cutting machine? NO! Can I pass up a mega sale? NO! Did I get just about everything they had? YES!!! LOL, but I must say I'm taking 5 of the carts to work tomorrow to see if my scrappy friend who was on the hunt too once I text messaged her from Michaels all giddy and crazy with excitement because her Micheals had way fewer carts than mine, so technically I really only purchased 4 carts for me....kinda, sorta! Anyway, just thought it was my scrappy duty to pass along the info since it was passed to me and I definitely could not pass up this deal!  Woot Woot!
Oh and a little bit more haul arrived tonight too. My Fiskars Jenni Bowlin punches arrived tonight from! Yay!

They are a little big smaller than what I was anticipating, but that's fine...I'm about to crack these bad boys open because I am on a mission to no longer be a scrap hoarder! And, someone please hold me to my word of not buying anything else (scrappy)for at least the next 3 months (unless I find more Slice carts--heehe--that doesn't count because I need them to use the machine...right?)! Yes, I obviously have a problem!

In other scrappy news, Docerela Creations is releasing 3 new stamp sets on Friday and the DT has been giving sneak peeks all week! So I thought I'd sneak in at least one more little peek before Friday! I used the current Sketchy Thursdays sketch and an added challenge to use blue and silver via this week's partnership with Scrappy Chics. Because I have homework to do and I need to do a couple of loads of laundry before bed I decided to make a card instead of a layout for the challenge. I used the NEW Docerela Creations Loveable stamp set (which will be released Friday)and the January Scrapbook Circle kit, You + Me, oh and a Maya Road cabochon from my stash and a shipping tag. I used Ranger Jenni Bowlin ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Please be sure to visit Carrie and Docerela Creations for more sneak peeks! Be sure to come back for the blog hop Friday because I'm pretty sure you will want to see the entire release (just sayin'...the new stamps are pretty darn cute) and also find out how you can win your very own Docerela Creations stamp set!

  4. Awesome card! Love all your details on this! Great deal at Micheal's! I saw it on clearance at my store today and I seriously ran past it! I still have my E2 sitting unopened in the hallway from Xmas! Ohhh but let me tell you I wanted to buy it so bad because it was such a great deal! Can't wait to see what you create with it!


Tell me all about it...
