Valentine’s Day Craft Stash

I have been enjoying rummaging through my craft stash and using what I’ve accumulated whether it was given to me or I scored it on clearance. I thought that I could start somewhat of a mini series sharing what I have for specific holidays or more seasonal items. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I have found a new YouTuber that I love, CraftingwithLiller, and she has amazing DIYs. On top of that I am now planning daily to use more of my stash (I was inspired to try that out by KeyKreates on Instagram). So with me back in my zone of creating, I wanted to share what I have in my stash.

DIY Card For Any Occasion

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, grandmas, aunts, god mothers, mother figures, etc. Today I celebrate my number one lady, my grandma. My mother passed away nearly 9 years ago, the day before my 17th birthday, my senior year of high school. My grandmother stepped in to the role of both mom and grandma which I can never  thank her enough for.  While I could buy her this and that, at 85 years old, what she enjoys most are heartfelt gifts. So what did I make? I decided to create an interactive card and the outcome, #AMAZING!

Michaels Haul + Building my Craft Stash

I’ve been pretty good about not buying any crafty items these past couple of months and trying to use what I have. This week at Michaels they were offering their 60% off coupon on regular price stickers, washi tape, and embellishments by Recollections. The location I went to didn’t have anything that I wanted, so I decided to stock up with their scrapbook paper deals instead.

Planner Haul: Etsy, Michaels, & MORE!

My name is Lakia and I have a planner obsession. Did I really need to buy anymore stickers? Of course not. But hell, since I did, I might as well share. I haven’t done an Etsy haul in quite some time, but I wanted to share orders that I have placed over the past few months along with goodies from Target, Michaels, and more.

Let’s start with the items that I purchased from AC Moore. I went in specifically for wedding stickers since I’ll be attending one in October. I found not only the stickers, but the holiday washi tape set as well. The washi tape set features 13 rolls for $12.99 and with a 50% off coupon, the price was brought down to $6.50. Compared to the similar set that is sold in Michaels, the one at AC Moore is $7 cheaper. Since I had a $10 rewards gift certificate I was able to get all three items for free. SCORE!

IMG_2132As for my semi-recent Etsy orders, I’ve ordered from:

Out of the four, my favorite quality of stickers would have to be Pixels and Poppies, but I’m upset that in moving the stickers that my pages were stained. I’m more upset with the shipping time being that with both orders I’ve placed the span of two months took nearly a month each to receive. No the order wasn’t coming from overseas either.  I’m still waiting on order number two. I like the LillieHenry stickers, well I’m more so obsessed with the football set, but I don’t see the huge hype around them. As for TheHappyDoodle the stickers are super cute and ImagineThatByLori is by far my fav, by default, simply because of the Steelers schedule. Links to stickers available are under the pictures.

I don’t purchase many printables since I don’t have a sticker maker. I’m still debating on whether I want to take that plunge and buy one, but that’s another topic for another day. As for now, I don’t mind buying the ones that are in blocks, a full sheet. Fine by me. Plus, the ones from MelissaBeeDesigns are only $2.

Moving on to Michaels, I couldn’t help but hunt down the Christmas Darice sticker books. The first Michaels I went to was a flop and all I purchased were stickers on sale. I then went back across town and hit the jackpot at the Michaels I should’ve went to in the first place. I purchased 9, yes 9 Christmas sticker books. If the fall ones were there I probably would’ve snagged all of those two. Expect a lot of planner layouts featuring these.IMG_2167IMG_2166
I really try my best to go into Target and buy nothing. Yes, nothing from Target. Then there’s the Dollar Spot, that seems to have more $3 these days, calling my name. I browsed and I only bought 4 things so that’s a plus. I picked up an accordion folder for more Etsy stickers plus some fall related stickers which I really had none of. As for the sticky notes. I mean, I have enough, but these are functional not just decorative. Excuses, excuses.


Lastly, I wanted to share my TV show sheet with you all. There are a lot of shows coming up and instead of buying TV show stickers, although the ones from FasyShop on Etsy are AMAZING, I decided to make my own. I didn’t make one for every single TV show I watch and I only made them for half the season since I ran out of sticker paper, but I like how they turned out. It was super simple to do and really took me no time at all. Download HERE if you’re interested.
