WOOT!! I just ordered this from ScrapbookSteals.com:
OCTOBER AFTERNOON has long been one of my top 5 favorite scrapbooking companies (maddening release delays, notwithstanding). I’ve wanted the “Apple Cider” line since I first saw it but was waiting for a great deal like this.
I still wasn’t 100% sure I’d pull the trigger – the main things I wanted were the papers, puffy stickers, and pop drops.
So I clicked on the product description to see exactly what was included in the steal:
apple cider collection kit
Featuring iconic autumn images from acorns and pumpkins to squirrels and leaves, this collection is perfect for your autumn paper-crafting projects.
1 apple cider double take stickers
1 apple cider flash blurbs
1 apple cider memory cards
2 apple cider paper bake sale
2 apple cider paper bonfire
2 apple cider paper corn maze
2 apple cider paper harvest
2 apple cider paper hayride
2 apple cider paper pumpkin picking
1 apple cider pillow puff stickers
1 apple cider pop drops
1 apple cider snap caps
1 apple cider tin pins
1 apple cider washi tape
Lo and behold, all 3 things I reeeeeally wanted were included in this kit, which I could hardly believe because it was only $18! Even with shipping included, that’s about 40% off retail. With October Afternoon, I prefer to get the entire kit so I was pumped, baby!
To make things even better, I forgot I was earning “Steals points” but I got this message after I placed my order:

So it’s only 62 points (62 cents) but, like I always, say, “It’s better than a sharp stick in the eye!” Now that I was reminded about the Steals points, I’ll try to click on over to the Steals pages each day. I get their emails, one that shows just the ScrapbookSteals deal for the day, and another that shows ALL the Steals.com deals of the day (they also have sites for She, Baby, and Kid) with some really cute stuff for great prices.
My goal is to save a few dollars on my next order, maybe even cover shipping. Then I’ll feel like a real Scrappy Shopping Ninja, ha!!
One tip I will give about ordering from ScrapbookSteals.com: If you’re in a hurry for your order, well . . . don’t be, LOL. I also ordered the Echo Park “Creative Agenda” collection kit from them on 09/02 and I just received it on 09/20. Granted, I chose the cheapest shipping option; you can pay more if you *need* your items quicker.
Yayyyy!!! So happy about getting OA Apple Cider. I just love the paper designs and puffy stickers and hearts so much <3 The "steal" changes everyday but you can check out their archives (past items like the 2 I talked about) HERE. ‘Course, I had to click over there right now to make sure that the OA and EP deals are still there (they are), and I had to see this:
The HEARTS! Oh, the HEARTS! I swear, the bullets I take for you people. You’d better appreciate it. Gah.
