Scrapbook Haul - Big Lots, Staples,!!!

Hi everyone! I wanted to share some of the awesome new things I picked up recently.

Anyway, Everything here cost less than $5!!! I just received an order I placed with I love that website! I also wanted to show you some interesting things I got at Staples in the clearance section. And...I know I said I wouldn't go back for a while but...I returned to Big Lots! I actually went looking for the magnetic closures I saw some people had found there but they didn't have them at my Big lots, boo! However I did find some great items!

My other news...I have a (small but cute!) PRIZE!!!! I decided it was about time for me to give something away on my blog! I don't have a large scrap room full of stuff to choose from but I still found a few random things I want to share! Check out my video to see what they are and how you get them.


  1. Amy, I am so jealous! I wish I had a Michael's or Big Lots near me (now an hour away). I have Multiple Sclerosis, so I can't drive but around 15 minutes before I hurt too bad to go on. Anyway, I love the great deals you got! You are amazing. I don't remember how I found your blog, but I check in EVERY DAY. I recently started a blog too, but haven't had time (too much to do this summer with the kids at home) to post some of my own projects. I have made a commitment to post a new project once a week and post a blog review or crafty tip 3 times a week. Of course, it will be August 1 before I do that. I've also thought of being a Stampin' Up demonstrator so I can show friends projects and make kits to sell. Check me out sometime. I will have more in the future and I will comment accordingly to you some time. So, you may not have many visitors yet, but you have me, which is better than my blog which has 3 visitors: me, myself, and I. LOL Keep up the great work and all the craftiness. Oh, and I would have watched the vids and commented even if you didn't have Blog Candy. :)

  2. Leslie - You are too sweet! CONGRATULATIONS! You are the big winner!!! E-mail me your address as and I will send your candy out on Monday! Also, I will definitely check out your blog. I really appreciate you checking in everyday! I am having such fun doing this blog and I am sure you will too! Thanks again!

  3. ooh really great finds!! and I love the music notes at staples..I picked those up last week and they are super cute! :)
    with a grin,

  4. Hi Stephanie! I like the music notes too! You are a winner too! Just send me an e-mail at with your address and I will send you some of the fun hands and feet paper clips! They are so cute in person!

  5. Hi AmyV,

    It's been way too long since I went bloggin. And now I find out your giving away prizes? Free stuff? Well, get outta my way, where do I stand in line. Free stuff? Gimmeeeee summa that!!!
    Seriously, I love to watch your videos on the weekend because seeing you every weekday just isn't enough, Mrs "V". I especially enjoy the video clips when your cat (Finn) shows up. Sometimes a face, sometimes just a paw, he adds to the fun.
    As someone we both know, once said, "can I give you some advice"? More cat in video - please.
    Anyway, your enthusiasm is contageous, keep up the good work.



  6. Amy V.
    It looks like you have been busy shopping!! I am visiting my daughter in Austin, hopefully I can con her into running me by big lots!!

  7. Jill - I am done shopping for a while! Thank you for commenting and ... you won too! E-mail me your address at and I will send you your small prize!

  8. Wow, how exciting!!! I'm still in Austin and trying my best to be a supportive mother/grandmother and help with the prep work for the coming new family addition. This is a wonderful suprise and treat. I'm really excited about some of those ultra cool paperclips.
    Thanks again Amy, I would love to hear what your family had to say about the cool "car" book that you made for your nephew.
    Later ♥,

  9. Your cat is adorable, I have a red setter called Finn and a cat called Muffin! I love those thumbs up paper clips and the passport metal embellies!
