This card started out as an A2 card, but I ended up cutting it down two around 4 1/2 x 4 3/4 inches. To make the focal image, I placed a 4 inch square piece of card stock on my cricut mat and cut out a 2 1/2 inch heart in the corner. Then I wrote my sentiment around the heart, and added some dash lines. I used my ATG to attach some pattern paper to my card base. I used pop dots to attach the heart cut out piece. After trimming down the card, I tied a bow and a added some pink pearls. I made two versions of this card. I hope you like it.

DCWV The Mod-Retro Stack found at Marshalls for $5.99
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.
