Hidden Treasures!

Don't you just love it when you find stuff in your closet that you forgot you had? Well, I do. I had totally forgotten about this little card making kit I got at Target last year for 90% off. See that price at the top? It says 4.99, but I only paid 49 cents! Hooray for end caps full of clearance!!! That is a whole other subject right there. The end caps. Does anyone else get completely sucked into that vortex every time they go to Target? I LOVE the end caps. I could (and have many times) spent hours roaming around the store looking for yummy end caps full of cheap goodness! But, I'm getting a little off point here...so I'll bring it back home for ya.

Here are all the parts and pieces that came in the box. I know...that's some good stuff. I am especially loving all the glittered tags and such that I did not have to glitter, thus being totally and completely covered from head to toe in glue and glitter. I don't love that so much.

I made 8 cards and still have a bunch of stuff left over. You can't beat that for 49 cents! I never buy pre-made cards because I really enjoy making them myself. Ummmm, this is way better. And I'm totally counting them as homemade.
Sue me.

Oh dear friend, I am so glad you don't live close to me or I would be competing for the end caps with you! I got so many wonderful things off an end cap last week that I was on cloud 9.

About the cards, they are homemade! And they look great!

Most definitely love the Target end caps. I cleaned up there on 90% off stationery a few months ago. Love it!

And your cards are adorable. I'll email you my address so you can put one in the mail to me. ;-)

Adorable they are. I have an entired scrapbook/rubber stamp/card making store in my hall closet, so feel free to stop by anytime and help yourself. I am not getting around to it and it bums me out because there isn't nothing that makes ones day then going to the mailbox and seeing a hand made card. :)

Your blog puts me creativity to shame. I count "creative" as putting a bow on my top of a wrapped present.

;)

You are adorable, and inspire me to be great.

49 cents? Holy crap what a deal! I too am a lover of target end caps. I don't go to target as often as I would like. it is a whole 15 mins. away-on the freeway-so I could really make it there in 10. My husband hates it when I go there. He pretty much hates it when I go to any store's clearance isle! Too bad for him, he is stuck with me forever!!! I found some super cute stuff at the dollar store for v-day-super cute little jewelery boxes and such. I just love me a good deal! So-are you going to mail all of your valentines?

Kimm at Reinvented said...

Adorable, you talented girl!
I very seldom venture down the full priced isles at Target, but yeah, have spent lots of time cruising the perimeter. It's quite the treasure hunt!

OH MY #6 said...

Love them! I visit Target as much as I can when I am in the US. I live in Canada.

I love it all! Thanks for you inspiration!

Kate said...

Too funny! These are cute and what a bargain! Yes, I have to admit, I do drool over all the markdown endcaps, usually spending an hour+ when I only went for a few things. I love a great bargain and bragging about a great bargain is fun too!!! Love those mailboxes, I haven't seen them at my Target though:(

What a great find!!! I am with you on the Target endcaps, they are wonderful. I cannot believe you found all of that for $. 49!!! The cards look so custom. They look so much better than a store bought card.

Have a good day.

Nicole~
