Champagne Wishes and Craft Dreams 3: The Purchases

Posted March 8, 2016 by Andi in Crafty Fun / 2 Comments

If you follow me on Twitter you know that I took my very first trip to Hobby Lobby this past weekend. Gail met me at the train station and we made it a crafty shopping day. We hit up Hobby Lobby, A.C. Moore and 2 different Michaels. I went with a budget (I didn’t spend over it!!!!) and items I wanted in mind and I would say I was 100% successful.


This is my complete haul of stuff from all 4 stores and I am so happy with everything. And I got some really good deals on things too. But there are some things I bought that made me the happiest so I thought I would share what those item were.



Martha Stewart Scoring Board – I saw this a long time ago at Michaels and it was on clearance for $10. For some reason I left it and I was mad at myself ever since. Finally was able to pick it up for $9.00 thanks to a coupon at A.C. Moore.

Scotch Advanced Tape Glider – This was my one splurge purchase. I had decided I was finally going to bit the bullet and get this when I went on this shopping trip and I did it. Here is hoping it is everything I want and more.



Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Confetti Chipboard – I just bought the 6 x 6 paper pad that matched this collection so when I saw the chipboard stickers at Hobby Lobby I knew I needed them. I mean look at that rose in the center??



Thickers: I’m obsessed with alphabet thickers for flip books. You can see from my haul photo that I got quiet a few packs of them. These two sets are my favorites. I love the navy on the left and the type writer font on the right.

Gems: These were purchased on a whim. I saw them at Michaels and I couldn’t not get them. I loved the bling and the color theme. Plus they were on sale.



Happy Planner Sticky Notes – Happy Planner just came out with a whole new line of things and these sticky notes were one of the things I wanted most. So happy Hobby Lobby had them.

Crate Paper Maggie Holmes Confetti Tags – I love pretty tags in my arts and craft projects. When I saw these I knew they needed to be mine.

Gold Glam Mini Craft Sacks – Gold and white mini bags for craft projects? YES PLEASE. I’m obsessed with the gold foil.



Recollections Washi Tape – It took two Michaels but Gail and I found the new Michaels washi we both wanted. And we used a coupon too. Bonus.



Dear Lizzy Documentary – When I saw the 12 x 12 paper pads were 70% off again at Michaels I immediately went looking for this one. I had wanted it last sale and they never had it. It is perfect!

Be Bold Be Bright – This is my most sought after paper pad. I’m in love with the colors and the patterns and the gold foil. And it was 50% off so bonus.

American Craft Valentine – This was on my wishlist and I found it on sale at A.C. Moore for $2.50. The rose paper kills me.

So there you have it, my favorite purchases from my weekend craft haul. What do you like that I got?
