Michael's Haul-Cricut Carts 9.99

Hi Everyone
I was trying so hard to stick to my no craft shopping plan for January. It's only the 7th of Jan. and I blew it...but I couldn't help it.....Arlene, Bona, and Jo who I get the pleasure of being on the Lindy Stamp Gang design team with enabled me with videos of what they found at Michaels...So I had to go....and boy I'm glad I did....

Recollections has a set of embellishments that are so much like Prima. I think I heard somewhere that Prima may be the manufacturer of the Recollections embellies (it could have been a dream though)....anyway mom and I did a quick trip to M's last night and this morning after a plow truck who thought it was best to remove the dusting of snow off the streets with the plow at 5am I decided to get up and make a haul video....Look what I found....Cricut Carts for 9.99....Sale ends tomorrow....

Here's a quick video on my haul. Not everything on my desk is from my shopping trip. I've been busy organizing and stuff......



Have a great weekend.
Hugs

  1. I too went to Michael's and nothing had 50 0/0 off, so when I got to the register they marked it down, so after work tomorrow I'm making another stop! Can't beat the prices!

  2. Oh now I have to head over there. Thanks for enabling me. LOL I am sure hubby appreciates it! LOL Have a great weekend and stay warm. I am still waiting for the snow plows to come by. They don't get to us until the evening. Usually the farmers around us do it before the city does. ;0)

  3. AWESOME HAUL.......... Can't wait to see what you design using them. I told someone else about the sale and she had a gift certificate from M's and she got 8 cartridges. Well, I will be heading there tomorrow, hope there is something left.

  11. Jan 7th I can throw my New Years Scrapbooking Budget out the door. Besides an on line deal- I will be jumping off the wagon during lunch and heading to Michael's!

  12. As soon as my rebate check gets deposited, I'm on my way to M's. I just might go before to see what they have and then come back and check out what I need (nada -- I need to start using up what I have). But $9.99 carts I've got to go see what they have. And, if our store (FL) doesn't have what I'm missing (we have a very SMALL store), I'll drive to AL (45 min)and see what they have.

    Thanks for the enabling -- you scored BIG!!!!!

  22. Hi Christina!

    Thanks for sharing. I love the roses (the roses that almost look like the prima tea roses) and the trim/lace. I'll be sure to keepy my eye out for those. Have a great day. =)

  23. Are you ever a WONDERFUL enabler. I read your email early this morning and told my hubby that when I finished teaching piano lessons this morning that I wanted to go to Michaels. Hope some of the crafters that were planning on going Sat don't live here because I toke almost all of the Reflections emblishments (almost $300 worth). When I saw your card containers I thought WOW I can use those too. So I bought two. I have everything put away in the craft room and now I need to get ready to teach again in a few minutes. After to make more money for the next time you enable me. LOL Thanks Christina. I am really happy with my haul.

  24. Hi Christina - just a quick question - I thought I read you live near me and I was wondering if you went to the Mikes in Dickson City or WilkesBarre. I want to go tomorrow and it looks like where you went had a great selection. That is if you left anything...lol. Thanks, Bonnie

  25. Hi Christina, I am new to your site but wanted to say you did great @ Michaels. I went yesterday after work to my local Michaels and only found 1 cartridge but went to another Michaels about 15 min away early this A.M. and I hit the jackpot!!! I got 6 carts for $9.99ea and the valentine stamp you showed another valentine stamp and a couple of other goodies. Then the mailman came while I was registering my carts and lo and behold another 4 carts that I ordered on sale-the new spring carts and another one-Well got to tell you my husband looked like he was going to have a stroke. LOL So I am sitting quiet here looking over my email and being good. But w/those deals how can you pass em up?????!!!!

  26. You are so bad girl! I was going to try to cut back in 2011 also but how can I now? I'll be up early and heading to M's... geez, hubby will think I am over the edge now!!!

  27. What an enabler you are - I was at Michaels on Thursday but when I saw your blog I went back on Friday and got some of the Recollections at 50% off!! Thanks for the tip - I really overlooked that on Thursday. The good thing is I was able to get another cartridge (Lyrical Letters) for $9.99 as a gift for one of my scrapbooking buddy's birthday next week! Thanks again!

  32. what a great haul....can hardly wait for the TBBM series....

  33. Well, I totally missed the Michaels sale and I signed up for the Michaels Rewards. Didn't even hear about the sale until it was too late. Did you pick up the card keeper at Michaels too?

    Looking forward to TBB&M series.

  34. I'm so bummed out! Crafters across America are getting all these cartridges so cheap.....and there is no Michaels in Hawaii. In fact, there not a single store that carries Cricut anything. *ugh!*
    I'm sooooooo jealous!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Okay, you got me - went to Michaels and got Pooh & Friends and Opposites Attract because I love the script on that cart and I can use my Cri-Kuts with it instead of cutting. Hope my dtr-in-law was able to find Lyrical Letters for me at her M's, then I'll make a final decision what to keep. Just a heads up - Pooh says cuts best on the Expression. Can't wait for the TBB videos. TY

  36. I bought one set of Prima flowers and I would love to try out the bigger ones like you got. I went to Micheals today and I din't see many of the stamps for a dollar that were for Valentines day, but worse, they sold out of the Cricut carts.. I was so disappointed!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well, I don't have a M's close by so I didn't run out to get the fabulous sale items (but I was lucky enough that a sweet girl from the Cricut MB picked up a G for me for only $49.99!! EEEKS)

    But I did want to let you know that you are correct, the Recollections flowers are made by Prima, Michaels just packages them as their own product to sell for their stores (which I find a little silly because I think they would sell better for them with the Prima name on them?) I am an independent Prima retailer and this is insider information LOL ;)

    Have fun using your new finds!
    Hugs,
    Kristina
