and now I'm working on the comp books. With all the stores listed here...I don't have hardly any of them. I do however have walgreens...but our local coupons say 69¢ not 19¢...so that's a bit of a bummer.
I found an off brand of sticky notes at walmart 12 for $4.50approx. I'm not sure if that's a good deal or not.
As for the pens...I'm not sure I'm going to include them at this point. That just seems like one more expense upfront. If the holders I'm working on are going ok...then I'll set some money aside for pens. Right now I'm just working on not buying anything new...I've even raided my scrap stash. to keep from buying more paper. I'm working on an almost no salery and I really want to be able to put a little more back into my pocket. I worked on a couple of journals that I'll post to my galery later next week...very nice. I used lt. wt. chipboard for the covers (the backing that comes in some paper packs) and used heavy cardstock to really make it feelstable. I took tons of scraps of light colored paper and cut them all down for the pages. They are 4"x6" with about 40pgs each. I've stamped some inspirational saying on some of the pages through the journals. Hubby has the camera and he's gone for a few days. I'll be leaving tuesday for Valley Forge (I'm working with The Rubber Cafe for a scrapbook convention) but when I get back I'll take several pics of all the goodies and post. Happy Stamping and thanks for letting me share.
Your post it note holders are adorable, good job! And our walgreens has the comp books for 69 cents too, but I found them (from a tip on this thread) at Dollar General for 3 for $1, so I bought them out. I still need 100 more post it notes so trying to find an awesome deal on those. I got the mechanical pencils 3 for 50 cents at DG too, so I bought everything they had of those! They came in a pack of pink/purple/blue and those are exactly the colors of my stuff so it worked.
