I went to my Walmart today to get a new cricut mat, and found the entire cricut section gone. In its’ place there are some studio G stamps and embellishments. The display wasn’t complete yet. There were Halloween Rubber and clear stamps, everyday sentiment rubber and clear stamps, buttons, cardstock embellishments, and epoxy embellishments. I got a stamp that said Boo and some polka dot buttons. I was little nervous about the stamp, so I immediately got home and tried it. It worked pretty well. My inkadinkadoo stamps are crisper, but the stamp worked and is clear. After check out the new products, I went on a search for the cricut products. All the circut stuff moved to a clearance aisle. All the cricut lite cartridges were priced at $20, and everything else was price reduced. Sadly they were out of cricut mats. Just wanted to let you know, what can find in the craft aisle at your local Walmart.
I was at the Big Lots by my house today looking around. I was not looking for any crafting supplies. While walking around, I found an aisle with tons of crafting supplies. They had lots albums, paper pads, card stock, embellishments, stamps, ribbon, and tons of other awesome scrapbooking supplies. My husband I looked through all the supplies for at least twenty minutes. I ended up spending 16 dollars are getting:
- Martha Stewart Crafts™ Mini Ink Pad Set in Aquamarine for $2.00 (retail price $9.99)
- Inkadinkado Woodblock Flower Rubber Stamp for $2.00 (retail price $9.99)
- American Crafts premium ribbon Brown and Pink for $1.00 3 yards (retail price $1.99)

I love watching haul videos on youtube, to see what supplies and deals other crafters are getting. I’ve seen some great deals on designer paper stacks from Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and Ross in some haul videos. I didn’t immediately go out and check, because I assumed these people were just lucky. This weekend while I was out, I decided to check out the TJ Maxx for designer card stock. Much to my surprise, there were a couple different designer card stock options. I found this super cute Me and My Big Idea Renee Argyle Green stack. It was only $6.99, and I love this paper stack. It has a vintage feel, beautiful flourishes, foil accents, and even some pages with flocking. After my success at the TJ Maxx, I decided to check out the Marshalls down the street from my house that I’ve never been to. The selection there was much better, and i picked up a couple super cute cheap items. My first find was the DCWV The Mod-Retro stack for $5.99, which is adorable. It has retro images, lots of grids, beautiful flowers, and an awesome color palette. Among all the paper stacks, I found one more loved. Also by DCWV, this stack is called Street Lace. It features a lot of black lace like images on bright colors with foil and glitter accents. Then I found a super cute cupcake punch by ek success. The punches were only $2.99 for both, and I already made a cute ice cream cone card with the top to the cupcake. I hope you like seeing my finds. Check your local Mashalls, TJ Maxx, or Ross for great deals on paper crafting supplies.
