I’m so happy that Michaels is turning over their stock much more quickly than they used to. Just about every time I go into Mike’s, there is something new. Here are some photos of things that were new ~ to me at least. These photos were taken on my last few visits to Mike’s.

Making Memories alpha stickers
They had several colors. The font is cute and I love that there’s an little crystal on each letter.

Journaling tablet stickers by Die Cuts with a View. There were 5 different themes, like Travel, Love, and Family.

Your eyes are not deceiving you…Those are Thickers @ Mike’s!! The choices are kind of slim so I hope they offer more style and colors in the future. Check out those red, yellow, and blue letter stickers. I swear those have been at Mike’s since 1996. C’mon, Mike’s, just toss them. If they haven’t sold in 13 years, they’re not going to sell now, LOL!

I’m so bummed this photo didn’t come out! I wanted to show you all these cute little epoxy stickers by Recollections…arrows, flowers, and my favorite, rainclouds and raindrops.

I love this K&Co. album from the Cut ‘n Paste line. It’s pricey but maybe someday I can get it with a 40% or 50% off coupon. Yeah, yeah… a 50% coupon! When’s the next holiday?? Oh yeah, Labor Day is right around the corner…

So, here is what I ended up with on trip #1: Some black Thickers. They are the puffy ones, black cursive font, called Rainboots. Also, a pack of American Crafts Slick Writers in black. I really only wanted the fine tip but they didn’t sell them separately in fine tip, only bold. Oh well, won’t hurt to have extra Slick Writers anyway. Used a 40% coupon on the pens.

On trip #2, I got two of the Journal Stickers Tablets ~ Travel and Family, and some Recollections pearl bling strips in green and teal. Used a 40% coupon on one of the sticker books.

Here’s one sheet of each of the Journal Sticker Tablets, just so you can see how cute they are. My Slick Writers will be perfect!

I’m so impressed with Michaels lately. With the demise of so many LSS’s, maybe we’re giving them enough scrappy business to keep that part of the store going strong. I sure hope so….Mike’s is my main source for Scrap Crack….erm, I mean….scrap supplies. What new things have you seen or purchased at Mike’s lately?

    A couple weeks ago I was out of town with my hubby and I made him stop at one of the really cool Michaels (one that truly looks like a LSS is in the middle of the store). They had the MME Complete Boy stack for $9.99. I snatched that right up and used my 40% off coupon. My hubby asked why I wasn’t getting the “girl one” too. I have him well trained! I checked out my local Michaels after we got back and they had it priced at $19.99. Gotta love a deal…score. I probably should have listened and bought the girl one.

    I’m loving Michael’s lately. Ever since they remodeled our it is awesome! Customer service still bites, but the selection is great.

    I love your updates! Did you know that Michael’s accepts up to 5 coupons at a time? You need to have 5 different coupons (i.e. the newspaper ad, an emailed one, the one off the receipt, or a Joanne’s coupon). All unexpired coupons, of course. My clerk even told me that the newest, best selection comes in on Tuesday mornings. If they know me….Perhaps I’ve been there a little too much lately….??? LOL ;)
