$1 Stamps



We all know how expensive this hobby can be, and with the Holidays right around the corner I went in search of a bargain. And where else do you go with a 40 % off coupon, but off to M's. I wasn't there to buy any stamps, promise...I actually went in to see if I could pick up some nice frames so i could frame some of the Stamps Happen Images....anyway, while waiting in line with a ton of baskets that were 90% off, and a handful of frames.... I spotted the bin of $1 Christmas Stamps. OMG! I dropped all my stuff and started stalking the bin. I found about 9 stamps that i just had to have, but hey, they were only $1! And I am so happy with my purchases! Here are the two cards that i worked on today. with the right dp and embellies you'd never know that these were from the $1 bin.
I used the Dashing Dp from SU. This paper is definitely one of my favorite things! All you need is some real red, old olive and very vanilla card stock, some ribbon and stickles and your ready to go! Santa and the Snowman were crystal effected and then sprinkled with dazzling diamonds. I also popped up both the snowman and the Santa and they can be removed very easily from the card front and can be hung on a tree as a decoration!

I'd also like to wish you a Very Happy Thanksgiving. My son is coming home from college tonight, and we'll be busy for the next few days getting ready for Turkey Day. Have a Great Thanksgiving with your family and friends.

I went to Michael's this past weekend and got 4 $1 stamp sets; they are Studio G clear stamps; 3 or 4 stamps per pack; what a great deal!!

I see you've been playing with your blog - it looks great!!
