Happy Halloween! Using all Target $1 bin finds

Hi Guys!




I'm not really convinced that the next holiday around here is halloween... The only REAL reason I am starting to believe, is that I walked into Target yesterday, and low and behold the dollar bins have halloween goods. They were pretty well picked over already; but I found some paper and ribbon sets.Of course, as most of you know I can't pass up paper at a decent price. 8 sheets... $1... thats cheap. :-) I wanted to stick with using what I had on hand for this, and I picked up this $1 stamp from Michaels months ago, preparing for halloween. So, I've created this little gem.
I've used the patterned spots paper (from the 8 assorted papers pack) as the background (set on black cardstock). I layered core'dinations black paper under the cat/phrase paper. I used my cuttlebug borders for the 'stitching' on the black paper. The ribbon is also from Target, in the dollar bins.
I hope this inspires you to glance into the dolalr bins the next time you stop by Target! Be sure to stop by in a bit; and check out what I've picked up over the course of yesterday and today!!

Your card is really adorable. I love the $1 stamps I pick up at Michael's. I think this past Sunday I picked up 8 Halloween, 3 Fall, and an adorable owl stamp. At $1 a piece, how can you pass them by..and it"s really great seeing projects that don't cost a fortune.

I love the dollar bins at Target, I stop by them every time we go. Sometimes I am lucky and they have a lot of scrapbooking stuff, and sometimes they hardly have anything. I Did find some chipboard books for only $1 today in their regular scrapbooking section, so thank you for the inspiration!
