New purchase!

I have been wanting to mess around with chipboard for so long, but haven't been able to find just what I was looking for. Yesterday I popped into our Joann's store in Johnstown which is not well known for having a great selection of scrapbooking stuff. I was not really looking for anything in particular and stumbled onto this chipboard pack which the cashier told me they just got in recently. I used my 40% off coupon on it and that brought it down to $14.99 (reg $24.99.)

This pack is awesome because you get more than one sheet of each! You get 30 sheets of paper, 10 sheets of stickers and 31 sheets of chipboard punch-outs. I learn alot by experimentation and trial and error (lots of error!) After the error part I usually have to re-do it and wind up needing another one of whatever it was that I messed up, with this kit I get several to mess up. No worries! A lot of times when you get an alphabet you only get one of each letter and I don't think that is very useful either. I also like to share with my friends, one more good reason that this is a great pack of stuff! Can you tell I am a little happy about this kit???

Back to Joann's and the selection issue. I did notice that they are getting some more scrapbook items instock, which I mentioned to the cashier and she agreed with me. It is no where near the selection they have at the Greensburg Joann's but I was still pleased to see some new things closer to home.

I also picked up on 40% off Valentine clearance 2 packs of embossed 5 1/2 inch square cards from Die Cuts With a View. One has hearts around the edge and the other has beautiful filigree look LOVE embossed on it. There were 10 cards and envelopes in each pack and the sale price was $2.99.

On another fantastic note we already have 20 people registered for the Spring Crop day at Camp Harmony on March 24!!! I am so excited! That is more than last time and we still have a month to go! I am working on some really neat stuff for our make and takes! If you are interested in more information contact me and I will get it to you.

Now back to sharing with my friends... First person to leave me a chipboard comment gets a scrapbook goodie in the mail! Have a good day!

I love the chipboard stuff too. Got a great deal at Michaels a few months ago, similar to yours, several of each. Now all I need to do is work with it more. Also, on another note, I visited the Greensburg Joann's Store yesterday, they do have an awesome selection of items, spent too much, bought too much, had a great time.

Hey Missy - Don't have a chipboard comment (but I do love playing with it - esp. distressing it)...anyway. I wanted to comment on the JoAnn's thing. How about those acrylic $1 Rhonna Farrer stamps they had! I was bummed they sold out so fast but what a great deal they were -ONE DOLLAR! Her stamps are fantastic. I wish they'd get more. I'm heading to the new scrapbook store in Greensburg tomorrow - The Crop Shop. They're really coming along! Becky, Ang and I went to a one day (9am-9pm - $10) crop at The Grove's in Huntingdon. Wow. You have to go sometime. She's a super person and her store is amazing! Glad you are feeling better! OK - I'm blabbing on your blog! So sorry!
