Shopping Finds at Michael's!

I went to yet another Michael's yesterday to see if they had the Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge.  Success!  They had it and I grabbed it up.  I think it is a great cartridge with lots of card making options!  I had been to two other Michael's in metro Atlanta and neither had it.  Sometimes I get annoyed with Michael's...they will have cards for Cricut cartridges or empty boxes of items that you have to take to the counter to purchase (like a Cuttlebug, for instance) and then when you go up to the cash register to check out and stand in line for an interminable period of time...well, then after they check every nook and cranny in the store they come back and tell you they don't have any in stock!  BUT...they have gotten back in my good graces recently by sending and redeeming virtual coupons so we are BFFs again...Michael's and Me....

Anyway, after I scored the cartridge I walked around and found some great must have items.  The first thing I found were these fabulous large flowers (Recollections brand) for only $1.99 a tin!  They were regularly $7.99 so that is a huge savings.  These will be great for cards, layouts, gift wrap, gift bags...I think they are just great!  I bought every color they had remaining! 
Michaels also had several colors of these Prima flowers but I refrained and only bought one...they were about half price at $2.49 for this container.
I also looked at punches and this dotted line punch which usually retails for $12.99 was on clearance for $6.99.  I haven't used these Recollections border punches before but at that price I decided it was worth a try.

On to the paper...I am not always a huge Martha Stewart fan (sorry, Martha)...or at least I'm not always a fan of her papers and embellishments but I found this little paper pad for baby girl  for $3.49 also on clearance...not bad for 24 sheets of 4x6 inch paper.  This will make some nice baby girl cards.  *As you know the Gadget Queen also known as TenSGal will be welcoming a new baby granddaughter in just a few weeks! 

And lastly I picked up this small pack of Studio G stamps.  I liked the sentiments and how they fit into the circle stamp.  These are  a great buy at Michael's at $2.50 a set but of course, if they aren't aleady on sale there are the virtual Michael's coupons.  Whip out your phone and have them scan the code!  So...with a 40% off coupon these little babies are only $1.50!  Not bad...not bad....

I think this was a great haul from Michael' BFF and I are good friends again!
