Autumn Leaves

More Scrapbook Stuff for Sale!

I have more things to sell from my personal stash. HERE is the first post of sale items (Lots 1-8).

From last time, most lots have been sold … THANK YOU to my buyers! It has been a pleasure e-mailing with you. I hope you’re happy with your purchase.

Here is what is still available from that last post; some of the stamp lot was sold off so it’s now smaller with a smaller price:

LOT #1 (MODIFIED): ACRYLIC STAMPS AND CLEAR BLOCK
$15 plus shipping
Retail value is about $60! All of these stamps are brand new, never been used, in the original packaging.

Autumn Leaves “Hand Drawn Alphabet by Katie Pertiet”.
This set retails for $25. I have it myself and use it often. It’s a very versatile font and is a great size for both cards and scrapbook layouts. Unlike a lot of stamp alphas, it includes both upper and lower case AND numbers with punctuation. At a $25 value, these stamps alone are worth $10 more than you’d pay for the entire lot of acrylic stamps with the block.

Autumn Leaves “Clear Stamps Acrylic Block”
Retails for $15. This is a solid acrylic block, 4×6″ in size, to be used with your acrylic stamps. If you’ve never used acrylic stamps, I’d be happy to walk you through it. I have this block myself and it’s the one I use the most, out of the many sizes I have, because you can lay out an entire word or title on it, or fit even the larger stamps on it (like THESE).

Autumn Leaves (8) various “Clear Stamps” that retail for $2 each, and Studio G (2) sets of “Clear Stamps” that retail for $1 each.

These are all stinkin’ adorable stamps, about $16 worth altogether.

ETA 9-1-10: The “You Are Here” stamp with arrow has been sold. I blew it. I thought I had a duplicate of it, so I sold it with another lot. What I do have duplicates of are (2) of the “Mini Make a Flower” (flowers with leaves) and (3) of the “carriage/baby.” Sorry for the mix-up!

So, that’s all of Lot #1: ACRYLIC STAMPS AND CLEAR BLOCK
$15 plus shipping

—————–
LOT 3: KAREN FOSTER “CLIKIT” EYELET SETTING KIT $5
Retailed for $40. This item is gently used.

I bought it right after it came out at a CKU and fell in love with it. What a fun tool! You can read a bunch of reviews HERE. I used it a few times at the convention; that’s why you see white paper leftovers in the dual tip, LOL. Alas, I am a fickle tool girl, and quickly became fascinated with some other method or three for setting eyelets (“What a cool eyelet tool! I really like it. It works so … oh, look, shiny new tool over there!”).

All of the pieces, mat, instruction book, even the free eyelets are still intact. On the bottom of the box, I wrote my name and phone number in small print; it’s been blacked out with a Sharpie. Other than that, it’s like new.


—————-

Now, to add some new things to the mix!

—————-
LOT 9: PIONEER 3-UP PHOTO ALBUMS, SET OF 6
$15 plus shipping

*** RESERVED ***

These are 3-up “Space Saver” photo albums by Pioneer; 3- up means each page holds three 4×6 photos (or 6, depending on how you look at it, LOL!). There are 2 light blue, 2 beige, 1 black, and 1 green. They’re all brand new in package except one that I opened so I could show you the insides :)

Each album goes in a slim pocket case. They measure 13.5″ tall x 7.25″ wide x 7/8″ thick. They’re so slim, they would stack very neatly on a bookshelf. Here is the front view of the first 3 …

.. and the other 3.

This is the book out of the case and what the pages inside look like. The case is nice for keeping the dust and sun out, and protecting your photos. Plus, it helps them keep their “slim” shape :)

In the back, there are pages sized for holding negatives. On the right is a pocket for whatever you’d like: photo CDs, panoramic, 5×7, or other odd-sized photos, etc.

Scrapbook.com has only 1 of these in stock right now HERE. It would regularly sell for $5.99 and they have it on sale for $5.69. HERE you can get 6 of them for $4.25 each (or $25.50 total) plus some hefty shipping charges; wow! Anyway, I looked around and they generally sell for $4-6 each. At my price, you’re getting them for $2.50 each ($15 total plus shipping).

Here is the official description of these albums:

Pioneer Space Saver Photo Albums can help you create an ultra-compact photo library. Each Space Saver Photo Album contains 144 slip-in pockets that hold photos up to 4” x 6”.
Durable translucent plastic cover
Protective and convenient storage case
Plastic pockets securely protect photos
Index cover labels for easy organization
Includes four panoramic pages and negative storage pages
Photo safe: Archival, Acid and PVC free

ALI EDWARDS even recommends these albums … I mean, come ON!

========================

LOT 10: 3-UP ALBUMS BY PHOTO STOR, SET OF 2
$10 plus shipping

These albums are black “leather” with 3 slots in the covers for 3×3 photos. Each album has 50 pages with 6 slots on each to hold 4×6 photos. Each album can hold an amazing 300 photos, or 600 in both albums. That’s MAJOR! In the back are 3 pages to store CDs and photo index sheets. There is a tab closure and each page has blank lines where you can journal what’s in the photo (or cover up with pretty scrapbook paper, LOL!).

Both are brand new, in excellent condition. I can’t find these albums online anywhere. Believe me, I looked. I got them at Costco a while back and I think I paid $20 for the set. They’re great quality and definitely worth $20, but I’ll let them go for $10 plus shipping.

Here is the front cover and what the 4×6 pages look like …

… and this is the inside back cover where you can see the CD/index sheet pages, plus a groovy pouch to hold whatever you want … negative envelopes, larger photos, memorabilia, etc..

All of these 3-up albums would be wonderful for photo storage, as Ali uses them. Or you could go the STACY JULIAN route and use them for PHOTO ALBUM SCRAPBOOKING like she does! What a great way to scrapbook ALLLLL those great photos from a trip – get them done and off your computer, right?

Scrapbook Items for Sale

I’ve been organizing my scrapbook space yet again, and have been coming across things to sell. They are either gently used things of mine, or products I got to sell at my crops.

I’m selling everything well below what it’s worth because 1. I really want this stuff to go to a good home (wink), and 2. I know shipping is going to cost some and I want the overall price to still be affordable.

Okay, here we go …

=====================================
LOT #1: ACRYLIC STAMPS AND CLEAR BLOCK $40 plus shipping
Retail value is about $100! All of these stamps are brand new, never been used, in the original packaging.

This is the entire lot, which includes clear acrylic stamps by AUTUMN LEAVES, CLOSE TO MY HEART, and STUDIO G* (from MICHAELS).

*If you love Studio G stamps, I have some older complete and incomplete sets. Stay tuned! I’ll list them soon :)

Autumn Leaves “Hand Drawn Alphabet by Katie Pertiet”.
This set retails for $25. I have it myself and use it often. It’s a very versatile font and is a great size for both cards and scrapbook layouts. Unlike a lot of stamp alphas, it includes both upper and lower case AND numbers with punctuation.

Autumn Leaves “Stitched Journaling Panels by Marianne Wise”
This set retails for $15 and is fabulous for journaling. I also have this set and use it quite often. All of the shapes look great on layouts and the stitching is so much cuter than plain, solid lines, don’t you think?

{NOTE: With just these first 2 items, we’re at the $40 I’m charging for the whole lot!}

Autumn Leaves “For the Record by Katie Pertiet”
These acrylic stamps retail for $15 and were super popular when I sold them for Memory Works in a past catalog. I can’t believe you get so many detailed stamps in one set. I use this one a lot also. The photo record stamp (2nd one down on lefthand side) would be so great to stamp on the back of your photos ~ especially the ones you don’t scrap ~ so you can remember the details of each picture.

Autumn Leaves “Clear Stamps Acrylic Block”
Yep, retails for $15 (seems to be a trend here, huh?). This is a solid acrylic block, 4×6″ in size, to be used with your acrylic stamps. If you’ve never used acrylic stamps, I’d be happy to walk you through it. I have this block myself and it’s the one I use the most, out of the many sizes I have, because you can lay out an entire word or title on it, or fit even the larger stamps on it (like THESE).

Close to My Heart “My Acrylix Doodle Alphabet (D1242)” (retired)
This is a really cute alpha. My favorite thing is the cute little birdie in the lower right corner. I also love the curly frame in the upper left; that would be fun to use like a monogram, i.e. stamp the frame and then stamp a single letter in the middle of it.

Autumn Leaves (8) various “Clear Stamps” that retail for $2 each, and Studio G (2) sets of “Clear Stamps” that retail for $1 each.
These are all stinkin’ adorable stamps, about $16 worth altogether.

So, that’s all of Lot #1: ACRYLIC STAMPS AND CLEAR BLOCK
$40 plus shipping

========================================

LOT 2: BOTTLECAPS and JUNKITZ “ROUNDERS”
*** TAKEN ***
Probably about $5 retail
I just want them to go to a good scrapper’s home, LOL. I’ll throw them in for free if you make another purchase, or will mail them to you in a padded envelope for $3 to cover shipping. HERE is one of the rounders used with some ribbon for a flower center (layout by LESLIE ASHE).

=========================================

LOT 3: KAREN FOSTER “CLIKIT” EYELET SETTING KIT $5
Retailed for $40. This item is gently used.

I bought it right after it came out at a CKU and fell in love with it. What a fun tool! You can read a bunch of reviews HERE. I used it a few times at the convention; that’s why you see white paper leftovers in the dual tip, LOL. Alas, I am a fickle tool girl, and quickly became fascinated with some other method or three for setting eyelets (“What a cool eyelet tool! I really like it. It works so … oh, look, shiny new tool over there!”).

All of the pieces, mat, instruction book, even the free eyelets are still intact. On the bottom of the box, I wrote my name and phone number in small print; it’s been blacked out with a Sharpie. Other than that, it’s like new.

=====================================

LOT 4: COLUZZLE “STARTER KIT” AND “TAGS” $5 plus shipping
Retails for $22. These items are brand new, still in original packaging.
*** RESERVED ***

HERE is the Starter Kit at Scrapbook.com for $9.99. HERE are some customer reviews. If you’ve never used a Coluzzle to cut shapes, I’m happy to explain it ~ super easy.

I’ve had a Cricut for a while now, and I know many people have all kinds of fancy die cutting machines now, but I still use my Coluzzles. I have all my templates handy in a drawer and it’s so much quicker and easier to pull them out sometimes than to get the Cricut going just for one or two shapes. I have quite a collection and you can find shapes other than these tags now for great deals. The tag template is perfect for making gift tags for birthdays and Christmas, and of course you can use them in your cardmaking and scrapbooking.


===============================

LOT 5: MEMORY STOR “HANDMADE PAPER-VELVET” $5 plus shipping
*** SOLD ***
Retails for $24. This is brand new, still in the package.
72 sheets of thick paper with velvet flocking in gorgeous colors and textures. The paper itself is surprisingly light in weight, so I don’t think it would be terribly expensive to ship. There are 12 designs with 6 of each design. These papers make unique and textural additions to your scrapbook layouts. Yes, I own this set of papers, too :) I’ve found the colors really easy to work with and so striking. Below are a few samples up close …

This is a dark aqua flocking design on a lighter aqua paper …

Black vine flocking on a white background …

My favorite … A delicate swirly pattern. I used this paper on some ATCs for a swap I did once. Just that little square of this paper made such a difference and set my ATCs apart from everyone else’s.

=======================
LOT 6: CREATIVE MEMORIES “DECO FILE” with EXTRA FOLDERS $5 plus shipping
*** SOLD ***
Retails for roughly $20; not sure as it seems they don’t make this item anymore (?). This item is gently used.

When I bought this, I used it to sort my paper scraps. I love how it accordians out so you can easily see everything you’ve stored in it. The lot includes a pack of additional folder inserts; 3 have been inserted in the Deco File and 3 are still in the package. When the deco file is empty, the black elastic is a bit stretched out … although when it’s full, I doubt you’d notice. Also, you could easily replace the elastic, probably with something cuter than a plain black band anyway, LOL! HERE is a similar lot on Ebay for $27.99.

==========================

LOT 7: CREATIVE MEMORIES “CROP TALK” FLYERS *** Free plus shipping ***
*** TAKEN ***
These all came to me via a friend when she cleaned out her scrapping stuff. She attended Creative Memories workshops for years and had this good-sized stack of Crop Talks. They are older ones but kind of timeless. I could just throw them away, but I was wondering if there was a CM GIRL out there who would like them just for the cost of shipping. I’d mail them in a manila envelope and send Media Mail so it wouldn’t cost much, I don’t think.

ETA: I hadn’t listed these yet but the same sweet lady who requested the Crop Talks also bought this lot …

LOT 8: CREATIVE MEMORIES STICKERS, ETC. $5
*** SOLD ***

Miscellaneous Creative Memories items in their original packaging (handled but not used)

===========================

That’s what I have to post for now, but keep checking back, because I’ll be posting more as my scrapbook room clean-up continues :)

1. All items are from a pet-free and smoke-free home.
2. Prices do not include shipping; we can work out the best shipping for you.

Grab Bag Scrapbook Pack at Walmart

I didn’t get one, but took some pics for ya’ when I was at Walmart the other day …

At my WM, they were on an endcap as you entered the crafting area. Each one looked like it had different contents, and it was hard to see exactly what was in there. They were shrink wrapped but I saw some Best Occasions and Autumn Leaves stuff. It was too much a leap of faith for me to buy one, but maybe you’ll be willing to take a chance?

THIS Pea bought one and was so happy with it, she went back for another. She posted this photo:

She’s right, that idea book alone sold for $20, so there’s your value. As it happens, I already have that book and tons of AUTUMN LEAVES stamps (including the ones pictured), so it’s probably good I didn’t get one of these scrapbook packs at Walmart. But wanted to share in case you “need” one …

I think it’s a brilliant idea: Package up a bunch of the scrapbooking supplies they’ve had forever, sell them at a great price, and get them outta the store … hopefully to make room for some new things … because it’s been a really long time since new stuff, at least at my Walmart.

Stay tuned: I have lots more scrap-shopping pictures to post from my weekend, but I had to work tonight so this is all I got to. But there will be more … oh yes, there will be more …

Scrapbook Shopping on Columbus Day

I was lucky enough to have the day off due to a State holiday…Columbus Day. Since I now work M-F 8 to 5, it was nice to have a weekday for errands. Went to get some labs done, met with our financial guy, met with the school principal, etc. Of course, I needed some retail therapy after all that! Got my 2 new scrap mags at Barnes & Noble…

I heard the November issue of Scrapbooks Etc is out but I haven’t been able to find it yet. Anyway, I’ve skimmed through the CK so far and it looks REALLY good! I’m so happy to see that BRENDA ARNALL is back with some EASY PATTERNS. This time, she incorporates some of those fun journaling stamps…of which I have more than plenty, and other great journaling ideas. HERE are the free downloads from the article (as of 10-13-08, they aren’t working but it says to keep trying back). LIZZY K talks about where you can turn your blog into a book, which is something I’d already planned to do, so I was happy to find a $10 discount code for CK readers! My girl NOEL is featured in an article on kids Thanksgiving projects. And there’s a fun scrap space featured that is geared towards having your friends in to scrap with you. I’m such a sucker for those Scrap Space features. I could read an entire book with nothing but ‘real people’ scrap spaces, couldn’t you?

After B&N was the craft store I sometimes call my LSS…cuz they are pretty cool and get some recent stuff, unlike Mike’s. I got a few sheets of Bazzill, and this paper from Little Yellow Bicycle’s ‘Frightful’ collection. It’s meant to be Halloween paper, but I’m just going to use it on some boy pages. I think it’ll look great with a bright shade of blue or teal.

I only have around 25 sets of acrylic stamps and obviously need more, so I also got these (They were $25, but only $15 with my coupon):

Won’t they be fun to color in with marker or colored pencil?? I swear, half of the appeal of scrapbooking is that I can play and doodle and be artsy-craftsy like when I was a kid. So please don’t pee in my Wheaties and tell me I didn’t need these stamps, k? They are part of my regression therapy, part of my ‘live like there’s no tomorrow’, part of my ‘recapturing my youth.’ You support that, don’t you?

Lastly, I went to Mike’s and used a 50% off coupon to get another Jetmax 3-drawer cube (remember, I’m STOCKING UP). I threw in 2 sheets of Bazzill ‘cuz I’ve heard at some stores they’re including Bazzill in the 4 for $1 sale (which applies to 59 cent sheets and Bazzill is 69 cents, but some are doing it anyway). Well, the butthuggers at the Mike’s I went to charged me full price for them so I’m glad I only grabbed two.

Okay, fess up, what scrappy goods have you bought lately? And whatya think of the latest CK?

Autumn Leaves Journaling Stamps

Went by the craft store on the way home from letterboxing the other day, and this is what I got:

Used my 40% off coupon on these awesome stamps, Stampology “Journal” (regularly $7.99, paid $4.49):

With me, Autumn Leaves can do no wrong with their stamps. I pretty much love them all. I haven’t had time to scrap with them yet, but I played around a bit this morning and stamped them out so you can see what they look like. I did the circle one with and without the journaling lines…the possibilities with that stamp and the scallop rectangle seem endless! I gotta say, the swirlie one that I stamped in green isn’t a fave. But, hey, at about one buck a stamp, I won’t cry too much if it never gets used.

I stamped them on white so you could see them best, but I plan to use them on lots of yummy colored paper. The thought of all the color combos I can make with my papers and chalk inks has me feeling all bubbly inside…hee! {Yep, it’s a sickness…}.

Speaking of scrapping diseases, the Fiskars Threading Water Punch malady seems to have hit everyone is scrap world….you know, I must have one or I will DIE! So if you still need one, Stacey at AMR has them in stock HERE.

She also has something I want need very badly…this Maya Road Calendar Turns stamp set. I love how you can spin it and change it, then stamp and circle the date. Kewl! You can pre-order it HERE.

What do you think of these products, or any other new ones you’re seeing around?

Autumn Leaves Stamps: Double Dates

Why oh why must they tempt me so? I’m such a sucker for Autumn Leaves acrylic stamps. These are next on my list:

I love how you can use the top stamps to date your event, by circling the date and you can use the blank box for the year stamp or just write something cute in there. For the bottom ones, the possibilities are endless. You like?

AMR Online Crop: Warm Up Challenge

As I’ve been blabbing about for days, I’m participating in the AMR Online Crop this weekend. Well, here is the first challenge and it’s from Anne Marie, the Message Board Hostess:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let’s Get Started! Warm Up Exercise
To kick off our first hour, I like to do a “warm-up” exercise to get your creative juices going (no drawing for this one) … so to celebrate our awesome Design Team and welcome our two newest DT members Jenn and Debbie, I invite you to scraplift a layout from any Design Team member and post it here!

For your convenience, here are links to their Flickr Galleries!

I chose to scraplift a layout from one of the new DT members announced today, Jenn! Here is here inspiring layout:

“GIVE THANKS” layout by Jenn Emch

And here is my try at it. I ended up copying her colors pretty closely (unintentionally!) because the papers from the Red, Cream and Black set from Autumn Leaves matched my photos so well. And I love to use kraft cardstock as a background.

100_36571.jpg

Materials: Bazzill cardstock; Red, Cream and Black PP and twill from Autumn Leaves; acrylic alpha from KI Memories; Martha Stewart journaling spot; Prima flower; Provo Craft flower brad.

That was fun! Now I’m at the computer doing my journaling for the next challenge. Come over to AMR and participate if you want. For every challenge, those who post their layouts by noon PST tomorrow have names drawn from a hat for a RAK…you never know, you could win! And Stacey gives the bestest RAK’s around. Hope to see you there…
