Michael's Haul

Although Michael’s, Joann and Hobby Lobby here in Central Florida aren’t very good at keeping their stores stocked ( I hope your’s is better)..
 I did manage some total bargins at Michael’s yesterday. 
I dragged the Boyfriend to just look around and hope they finally got some Dies in stock, 
Luckily for us they were having a 3pm – Close April 3rd ONLY SALE ” 
If you spend $50.00 or more you take off $20.00!” 
Now it ruled out anything on clearance, and the usual machines and supplies, candy, magz and books etc, but we managed to find some stuff..

I asked my Boyfriend bring his phone into the store and got him to have the coupon as well and we both checked out on separate tabs  
I also had a 50% off 1 reg priced item so I used that little gem too. 
They also had one of their 40% sales on tons of items and luckily for me Stamping and Papercrafting items were in that 40% off group, AS were Tombow Dual Brush Pens… 
My best price on markers EVER.. $26.99ea is their Tombow Dual Brush Markers!
 I paid $9.00ea that’s RIDICULOUS!!
 I was so impressed with that $18.00 savings and I so wish I had bought more, but alas I have a budget and had to stick to it! 
Anyhow here’s my list of great items all for the HUGE price tag of $88.01! 
The actual price without discounts was, $229.41 ($245.46 w/Tax) WE saved a total of $148.16… 
I was so impressed with myself I had to write this post LOL!

Comprehensive Freebie List

Sorry for the lack of posting,
 My time is dedicated to so much these days and I’ll be reining my hobbies in and devoting more time to my family, PT, work and finally "sadly" crafting. 
This comes with the knowledge that I have a herniated disc in my back and pretty much have to give up on some of my other sporting activities.. 
With that said I have made some things and I will post them here soon.. 
With learning new things comes a lot of reading, downloading and gathering goods both digitally and physically from stores and trust me when I say I’ve done a lot of all 3 since this journey began.. 
I wanted to share some of my favorite sites with you for fonts, svg’s, prints, clipart, vectors and other useful crafty things… 
You can subscribe to these sites and get freebies in your email, daily or weekly depending on the site, most also have youtube videos so watching and reading = learning, there is just so much information out there, its ridiculous. 
Some of the sites have multiple purposes so I will add them to all the lists but not link them every time. 🙂 

Please remember MOST of the files you can Download are suitable only for free, personal use, not to sell or use on items you sell. 
Most have full versions you can purchase or licenses you can purchase, please read the TOS, Angel Disclaimer, Copyright, etc on their websites or READ ME files in the zips. 
I hope this helps your crafting endeavors.. Enjoy!!

Card Mania

So I’m going to post my latest cards here all together, I’ve made a few i forgot to take pictures of and I’m in the process of some others, but here is my small collection! 

My favorite to make was the Stilletto Shoe card from Dreaming Tree 
(They seriously make the very best designs to play with and their customer service is amazing.) 
The Easter Bunny Card is also from Dreaming Tree , 
The Balloon Card is from SVGCuts
The Bicycle Card, Happy Birthday Card and Easter Card are all from Cricut Access.

I didn't line the shoe up perfectly onto the Shoe Card base so its a little skewed, and you can see some cardstock edges..
The Balloon Card was a toughy and not all the panels are lined up correctly so some are a little crooked...
The Easter Bunny Card is fine but the paper wrinkled a little bit..
The Easter Card is not lined up in the middle quite right, and the sentiment stamp inside blurred...
The Happy Birthday Card I glued on upside down, so it opened backwards, hence to say they got a store bought card as I didn't have time to fix it, and wasn't quite sure how I could to make it work.. lol
The bicycle back panel isn't on straight and I wasn't happy with the wheels..
So as much as I'm still making mistakes, only i really noticed the small ones.. which is okay by me lol
Okay so there's a little sample of things I've made, follow the links to make you very own.. 

Happy Crafting 🙂
