Tasty Tart

I am offering up some Tasty Tarts again.....I am almost at 1000 hits so as soon as I hit that mark I will be drawing a name to receive these goodies. Just leave a comment on where you love to shop for supplies.












My friend Shannon is having a birthday today. Shannon talked me into joining the gym with her and our other friend Vicki. This card seemed fitting and I have to thank Kelly for the inspiration for this card.
















This is Kelly original card . She has a template on her SCS gallery.

I love to shop at my local stamp stores - it's good for them and good for me (they do coupons!! plus there are some really great people out there with stamp stores)

kathy said...

Hmmm I have never been first to post..you think this is good luck? I love Hobby Lobby and AC Moore and my friendly su friend. great blog

Yosha said...

Congratulations on all the hits!Wow! those are crazy treats!

My main source is Stamping up as that's how I got involved in all this! But I do prowl through Michaels and recently a store opened here called "Urban Trends Scrapbooking" and they have some nice stuff and sometimes good deals!!! I am all about the deal...most of the time!

I love shopping on ebay for a deal!!

lois lane said...

I don't have a lot of choice. We have a Craft 2000 and a JoAnn's. They aren't real big. They have some stuff. We have a LSS close by and I go there sometimes. They have a lot of different things.

Kristine said...

We have a small local scrapbooking store that I love to shop for supplies at. She carries everything you need, she's always there to help you out and she also gets some very unique stuff in.

Where I live, I have to travel at least 45 miles to get to a stamp store. Fortunately when I do, there are other great stores nearby so that I can make a day of it. Locally, I would have to say we have great dollar stores for embellishments.

Hello! I love to shop at Michaels, Joanns, and Archivers! They are so much fun. My local scrapbook store is 45 min. away now, so I don't get there very often. Thanks!

I love to shop at AC Moore -esp with those coupons! However, I do a lot of online shopping as well- from ebay, Joann's, other small retailers on SCS. I have traded and bought some retired sets. I wish I had a local scrapbooking store near me - I would love to see paper and other goodies in person.

Melanie aka Batgirl said...

I love stampin up its the best :)

Shannon said...

We only have a Michaels around here. There was a scrapbooking store but it shut down, which was a bummer. Most of my money goes to SU! because my sister is a demonstator and we have a little monthly club. I do love a scrapbooking store called My Daughters Wish that I order on line from too.

Lynn said...

Well, Stampin' Up! seems to eat up most of my money. I'm in a hostess club, so I have to spend at least $15 every month. Ha! I thought that would be easy to stick to, but I'm always way over the required amount.

ronee said...

heh girl:
my addiction is stampin up! I can't run away from it..even if I try. I love it!!! Crossing my fingers!!!

Susan said...

Since I'm in Canada, I love to use R & R Scrapbooking, an online store when I can't find what I need through Stampin' Up. Love them both!

Rebecca said...

So many places that I love to shop! I love the challenge of finding an item as much as actually buying it!

I would say my current favorite is Eclectic Paperie! I've bought several things there recently

Monika Thiessen said...

Hello, I love Stampin Up, but also just the Dollar stores around they have some neat items too.

Allison said...

Hi Lois! I like the dollar stores, Michael's and sometimes, my LSS (although I find it a little overwhelming!). Mostly, I get enabled by my fellow bloggers and then go buy it online!

Selina said...

I love that flowered tin and your photo cube! Very fun...congrats on you hits as well!

Angel said...

I just moved and was SO very thankful there is a Hobby Lobby here because that will always be my favorite place for stuff. Of course, SU has my colors. I am true to their CS and inks. I haven't found any LSS, but hope to find one soon. Great goodies and good question.

Peggy Maier said...

Hmmm... well it's a strange mix of where I buy supplies! Wal-Mart & Hobby Lobby would have to be my main places. I do get to go to Dallas (2 1/2hrs away) to a Michaels or JoAnns, but not often. And of course I order online, but don't really have a favorite. (But seeing how much I spend in one place, the most evident would be Hobby Lobby - especially since I get their 40% off coupons!)

lorraine said...

i love to shop at local stamping/scrapbooking stores but lately i have been ordering from the internet when i see some unique items or someone is having a sale.

Alex said...

I shop online, and everywhere!!! I tend to buy a lot from US now, or get my new friends to shop for me!!! bless there loving hearts

ADORABLE GINGERBREAD PEOPLE!

We have this amazing store in Amherst, OH...Stamplistic. It is about 3 rooms at least filled to overflowing with stamps/papers/accessories. They hold classes and seminars

But the best part about it is that there is never a time they are too busy to demonstrate. I decided yesterday after spending over a wad there, that these wonderful, artistic women are enablers and you just never know it til you are walking out the store trying to redo your budget in your head.

but they have so many ideas and so many ways of changing the normal to the unusual. I love the store. I love the ladies. If you are ever in Ohio, near Lake Erie...you MUST make it a stop.

And give me a call and i'll meet you there. I'll even treat to lunch...or breakfast...or dinner.

Laura said...

Cute blog - love your theme colors!
I found you thru Allison's blog.
I have so many different places I frequent for my supplies - My own SU catty is probably my biggest, but I also frequent Michaels as it is right behind my house as well as lurking online at different sites: oriental trading co, JoAnn.com and so on. Thanks for offering the blog candy.

Lisa said...

I'm an online kind of gal.. Don't have time to mosey through the stores..

WOO HOO... Congrat's on the hits...

Please come check out my blog and BLOG CANDY .. www.inkerdoodles.blogspot.com

sdaly said...

Great gingerbread collection! Thanks for sharing.

I do love Stampin Up as my "fix of choice" --- otherwise I do scan Michaels, especially the $1 stamps.
Thanks again.

jodene said...

I love your gingerbread people so cute. I do most of my shoppng from SU. Being in a small community we don't have a craft store. But when I do get to the big city I always go to Miceal's.

Heather Leech said...

Hi!
I do alot of my shopping online. I like Scappin' Great Deals as they are Canadian and thus I don't have to pay duty. I also like All That Scraps in the States. But, of course I'm my best Stampin' Up! customer!!

Denise said...

my favorite place to shop is my local scrapbook store...she has everything!

Ila said...

I love to order from SU. My daughter is a demonstrator. I also like to shop at Michaels when I go to the city. Love your blog and visit often. TFS

Linda SS said...

Ebay is my favorite, but also go to Michaels, JoAnn's and on-line companies. I love your blog & gingerbread:)

My Name is Nancy Grant and I am... said...

I live in a very remote place so I like to order my supplies from All That Scraps and from our local TAC and SU! demonstrators. :-)

Jan Scholl said...

I will shop if they carry new and exciting products. I have a ritual of making the rounds every few months. I map them out and make a big day of going to scrap and stamp stores. Some are far away so I only get there maybe twice a year and others I get to once a month as they are closer (an hour) Some have gone downhill and are now off my list and many have closed over the last few years. So I now have three must visit stores.

and if they have classes that arent boring, even better (hi Stacey)

Steph said...

I do a lot of my shopping online because I live in a small town that is a no stamp or scrap land.

Also, I love that I can shop in my pyjamas. LOL!

One of my favorite online vendors is Fran over at Frantic Stamper....she is amazingly quick!

I love Archivers but do not get there much as there is not one in town. We do have a local store "The Scrapbook Store" that has recently expanded and is fast becoming top of my list!

Mo Moss said...

My favorite place to shop is online!!! I do not like to shop in town. I do frequent AC Moore's, Michaels and now and then, Joanne's. I buy a lot of stamping materials on line and I am waiting for the new SU cataloge . Aren't you?

Wendy said...

I am definately a Stampin' Up shopper (I live in small town SK) and when I get to the city I stock up at Michaels.

Anonymous said...

Well, I love to shop at so many stores that it is hard to pick one...my top three favorite online shops are 1. Eclectic Paperie, 2. Papertrey Ink, 3. Joann.com.
I also enjoy browsing my LSS.
