Haul & a Giveaway!

I haven’t done a Haul Video in a little bit, so I thought it might be time to show you what I bought at my local scrapbooking store and the scrapbooking store in my parent’s hometown.

This was my first time at the scrapbooking store there, called All About Pictures– the owner was so sweet and the store was stocked with lots of goodies- and even a few things I didn’t have in my collection yet! πŸ™‚Β 

Actually, All About Pictures is the newest store to carry Pink by Design Stamps– so if you live near Cedar Rapids, Iowa, be sure to check them out in the next couple of weeks! Β If not, you can stop by their Facebook page and give them a friendly hello – they are trying to reach 100 fans (and then they’ll give away a gift certificate).

Alright…here’s the haul!


What’s the latest craft goody you’ve added to your collection? Β Leave a comment below and I will giveaway a Pink by Design Background set!

Also…if you haven’t signed up for Pink by Design Stamp of the Month– now is the time-this is the month all stamp of the month members, get a free die that coordinates with the stamp set!

Have a great Wednesday everyone!! Don’t forget to leave a comment below to be entered for the Background Stamp Set!


  • My last craft goodies were 2 sheets of EZ-mount, because I bought the unmounted Dovecote and Lampost stamp sets from Flower Soft:-)

  • Great haul! I really like that Christmas Pad you got!
    My lastest shopping adventure got me the Martha Stewart scoring borad! I think i’ve made about a dozen boxes! hahaha
    Love the card and the wreath!

  • Wow you really got a lot of great stuff! I bought that Graphics 45 Christmas book and loved it so much I had to go buy some of my favorite sheets. I bet you were just loving it at the store… so nice when I find stuff my local store doesn’t carry.
    Happy scrapping!

  • WOW I would love a chance to win this stamp set. I love your blog so much and I come here a lot. I would love to win this and I can use it everyday on my cards that I’m making. I’m averaging about 10 cards aday and now I’m making some for our service boys to mail home. So you can see why I really could use this set. Thank for the chance.

    Thanks for Coming by with us…………..

  • I picked up the snow marker at my LSS about a month ago. Haven’t used it yet, but I’m very excited! My most recent purchase was some Cuttlebug folders from Cricut.com, some DCWV paper from JoAnn’s, and the new Sew Ribbon from another LSS. Now to just find time to get back in my scrap room… πŸ™‚

  • Great haul video! I just started scrapbooking & card making so my collection is small right now. The last thing I bought was Jetmax drawers and a glue gun. I just got the drawers put together so I am trying to decide what to stick in them. Thanks for the giveaway

  • I am so jealous we don’t have any small non-chain stores close. I have to drive at least 35-40 minutes πŸ™ thank goodness for online stamp shopping!

  • I just ordered a Basic Grey Rub-on Tool. I have lots of rub-ons but am not very good at applying them–hope this helps.

  • I’m a rookie to this whole scrapbooking/cardmaking community! So my “newest addition” is something any veteran scrapbooker owns: a paper cutter. πŸ˜‰ haapy scrapping!

  • Looks like you got some nice goodies! πŸ™‚ My latest edition was a Corner Chomper…I had corner rounding (cheap-o) punches that are dull dull dull, so I’m hoping this solves my problem of fraying edges!

  • I love watching your haul videos! I feel like I got to spend money with you! lol! I just ordered the 2 new Echo Park Paper Christmas kits….I’m such a paper nerd AND a paper hoarder!! I just LOVE looking at it, then I dont want to use it cause I worry I wont get anymore of it! lol! Thanks for the chance to win your giveaway!!!

  • Great haul! So wish I had a small chain store near me. My latest purchase that I am loving is the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

  • Great stuff! Can you ever have enough paper?! I do not have a LSS either and I am definitly a touch and feel it shopper.

  • My latest purchase included an atg gun to replace a different one, some chalk ink, a couple of paperstacks, and some holiday paper from bazzill. I have the same exacto knife and it works a lot better however it still jumps like my other one. I always cut my ruler. Lol

  • Great haul!! Lots of wonderful goodies!! My last purchase was a Sizzix 3-D Flower die. I recently got a Big Shot and only have 2 dies so far!

  • You got some great stuff! My last purchase was some paper from DCWV, and an album for my sisters wedding LOs that I am trying to finish for her in time for Christmas!

  • Now that I think about it, I really haven’t bought anything new lately. Just adhesive and markers. Nothing real fun. I did order the Tim Holtz fall seasonal inks yeaterday and can’t wait to get the winter nes ordered. The colors look great!

  • I just found colored vellum – I have used the regular clear “white” for a long time – but had never seen the colored kind – I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet but can’t wait to play with it!

  • Thanks for sharing your haul, it gives us a closer look at what is available out there! I just gotta have those Tim Holtz letters, Tuesday Mornings, here I come!

  • I just added the Lost & Found Christmas papers, Christmas bling and some some chipboard alphas. Thanks for a chance to win

  • I can’t remember what the last thing I bought was but it was probably glue or adhesive rolls for my ATG. Since being laid off 14 months ago, I just can’t spend money on anything but the very basic necessities.

  • Love the colors on the card, lovely. I went to Michaels and purchased the large circle cutter (Martha Stewart) on sale 50% off! LOL, yesterday!
    I really need to invest in Christmas stamps too, just not sure because there are so many and I want to make sure I purchase one I will use a lot!

  • What a nice haul. I know you will enjoy the goose bumps . I had picked it up at a rubber stamp show I attended. Love the Christmas stack you got. Im going to try to use up what I have for Christmas paper… Let us know how the stamp caddie works out, IVE been looking for something like that.

  • Nice haul Sarah!!!! My newest is finally getting an iRock & some pretty jewels!! I have wanted one for so long. Gotta love Michaels 50% off coupons!!!!! TFS your haul & for that great giftie!!!! ChelleBee – kweenbee_612@yahoo.com

  • PS Also found some Studio G stamps, inks & pretty lil ribbons @ Walmart in the 50% off Halloween aisle! Go figure!!! ChelleBee

  • nice card. tfs. my latest purchase was some halloween items that were on sale at michaels and i had a 20% off entire purchase coupon. got a martha stewart punch for about $5.

  • Great haul πŸ™‚ I just got a pink big bite! After watching how easy they are to use and all they can do, I decided it was a must have.

  • Nice haul! I really like the blue and brown Christmas paper you got. I’m not allowed to use a single edge razor blade. When my oldest was young I was putting wallpaper up and used it to cut the extra paper at the top of the wall. The FIRST piece of paper went up great until I used the razor to slice off the extra paper and ended up cutting into my left palm. I had so much blood squirting out I though I cut through an artery! Ended up taking a trip to the hospital and getting 3 stitches. The worse part was I had to wait a week before I could continue walllpapering! To this day there’s a stain on the subfloor about 1 1/2 feet across!

  • Such a great haul! I found a LSS in Fairfield, Ia and bought a Martha Stewart punch that punches out the whole border. I usually buy her regular border punches but this one punches out both sides. It looks great with rhinestones in the center the punch out. Dana @ papermemories4u@ yahoo.com

  • Loved seeing all of your Goodies that you got. The other day I went to Michaels and bought the Martha Stewart Spider Web Punch. It retailed for $17.99 and It was on Clearance for $5.99. I have been wanting to get It. It was pretty Exciting to find it for that price. :0)

  • Great haul! My last “haul” was ordering B is for Boy with Rewards points and 9 Months from Cricut.com when they had their latest sale. Notice a theme here? I’m expecting in April! πŸ™‚ I’m trying REALLY hard to avoid scrapbook stores since hubby and I are trying to save some money. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • I am trying to get cartridges. The prices are great on the older ones before they disappear.
    Love the blog and have been a follower for some time. Thanks for a chance to win. Visit my small blog and leave a comment………

  • Great Haul. My most recent purchase was today I got a couple Stacks of paper on sale @ my local scrapbook store. Thanks for sharing your haul! I love to see what other people are using to craft with.

  • …. yum yum on your goodies.. arent they fun ? My latests * yum-yums * are some
    graphics 45 papers and the scotch tape glider.. thanks for the opportunity…

  • I love those single sheets of paper you bought. The paper airplane one and the tree one are the cutest! The latest crafting goody that I added to my collection is … hmm, I have to think about this because I’ve been good with my spending lately … oh right, the Pack Your Bags cartridge! I had a $10 rewards certificate from AC Moore, and they were on sale for $30, so I didn’t break my “can’t buy a cart over $20 rule.”

  • I recently bought a Big Shot so that I can make little treat boxes for my grand-kids. They love my treats during the holidays and now I can dress them up. I also do this with my cricut expression machine but this way I can just do one at a time. Love all of this scrapbooking and being creative!

  • Oh Sarah, I have such a love/hate for your hauls!!! I LOVE them because you have great ideas for crafts, but I hate them because then I feel the NEED to shop!!!! But mostly, I love them….. πŸ™‚ My newest crafting tool is a BigShot!!!!! It’s in the mail… haven’t gotten it yet.

    Great post!


  • A store in Cedar Rapids, yippie, this might have to become my new LSS as everyone around me is closing or closed. Wonder if I can convince my hubby that I need to drive for 1 1/2 -2 hours just to go scrapbook shopping.

  • Today I purchased some paper and embellishments from Close to my Heart (i’m a junior consultant). I also purchased a 12 pack of tape for my ATG gun off ebay for a little less then $27 bucks and free shipping from TapeDepot. I also went to Michael’s for a cake class and ended up getting a zig 2 way glue pen, a mono adhesive runner, and the supplies for my ornament. I think I shopped too much. HAHA!

  • Christmas Bling was my latest goodie. Just did a haul video which I am fixing to upload showing what I got. I love bling and I love Christmas – so it was perfect! Thanks for the gfiveaway. I love the papers you got!

  • I just bought a Cinch, version 2. I bought it online so I don’t have it in my hot little hands yet, but I can’t wait!!! Oh, and I just got some Smash Books! Love them!!!

    I’m having a mega paper giveaway on my blog if you’re interested…stop by!
