I was going to say the same thing. I bought some today. The 4 pk die cut tags were the best deal for $2.00, got lots of Halloween dies with embossing folder for $2.00--here's a picture, I'm going to go back and get the smaller die cuts because I thought I had them and I don't.

Omg! I have to hit the other Big Lots....they didn't have much when I bought mine, but there's always another one I'll check. Love what you ended up with. I also found a ton of big sets of clear stamps for $1.00 each.

Thank you for sharing your picture..your finds really got me off the fence & eager to check it out!
Good luck on your next store visit!

I'm here to say that my BIG LOTS are not going to have these...never have the good stuff...plus the weather here in Oklahoma, who knows if I will be able to get out of this house...Tornados, Hail (baseball size), High winds, and so on...We will see.

Great enablers!

I only got four sets but yup, there were probably 15 or more to choose from. Most were from the Disney line at my store and I'm not that into Disney but still managed to feel like I had to have one Disney that included a street/skyline cut out that will be very versatile.

I picked up 9 different dies/embossing folders at our Big Lots today including several Disney ones to use with my DDs. My favorite one is the Love Language set. I've always wanted this set mostly for the embossing folder, but couldn't justify the price, but for $2, I grabbed it.

Thanks for posting this! I stopped by BL on my way grocery shopping this morning and picked up the houndstooth folder (which I have been wanting) and another flower folder with thank you die cuts. Each were only $2!!!

Thanks to the OP ashjoy for being a super enabler!!!! I picked up "Build-a-Flower", "RIP, "Creepy", "Snow Fun", and "Honeycomb". Now to find the time to play!

BTW - my DH says thanks too! I told him I needed to go to BL and he said he would go too. Then he thought a minute and said, "did someone from Splitcoast tell you to go to Big Lots?" LOL! Uh oh...I think he's on to me!!!!!

Thank you, this is the first time my Big Lots had the good stuff. Mostly Disney but some die/embossing packs, Halloween and Baby. I got a Houndstooth also.

Was in my Big Lots today - zilch, nada. They still had some really old studio g $1 stamps for 50 cents and some no-name cheapo stamps but not much of anything else. I scored some really big (background sized) stamps that normally go for $15+ dollars awhile back all for $1 each which was super cool, but that's the last time mine had much of anything worthwhile in the craft area.

To the OP, thank you!!!!! Super fantastic of you to share this wealth of enabling!

I stopped by mine yesterday, and at first glance, walked right past them. I went around the aisle, decided to put back something I had picked up, and it's a good thing ~ I saw them the 2nd time! I think they had about 18 different Disney ones - one for every season, theme! They also had a few scattered CB embossing ones, like butterflies and flowers and LUCKY ME - seashells! (my blog theme, and craft room theme!) Just splendid! They will make awesome gifts during holiday time and blog give-a-ways!

Thank you!
Blessings!

So, Bonnie, drive up to Wichita, and hit all three of ours! I find some great stuff, and I can see I'll be out tomorrow looking!
