I seriously have a problem.

Last Friday I treated myself to the Xyron 5" creation station and a refill for it. Refill was on sale at Michael's for 40% off and I had a 40% off coupon for the machine itself.

Well...when I bought that they gave me yet another coupon for 40% which was to expire yesterday.

Then on Tuesday...after my daughter's ENT appointment...she and I stopped by ACMoore. We only bought some stickers (another problem I seem to have!) and a scrapbook and they ended up giving me a coupon for 50% off a regular priced item...to expire 1/31/09 - yesterday.

So....I cannot let a coupon go to waste, right? Well...yesterday we travele one direction to ACMoore where I used my 50% off coupon for a Xyron pack that had the 2inch sticker maker, photo tape, refills and the runner in it! And a laminate cartridge for the Creation Station.

Then....we headed the other way to our Michaels where I used my 40% off coupon to buy a scrapbook organizer bin thing...and....another adhesive refill for my Xyron. Did I need it? No...not yet at least. But I could only use the coupon on a regular priced item. Couldn't waste it!!!

And now...I'm excited to buy a new cartridge for my Cricut along with some more mats and possible the inks for it!

I really have a problem. I can't stop buying things!!!! I'm glad my DH hasn't had an issue with it yet...

I feel like I'm going to start getting that way too! I should stay away from you!

So tell me about the Xyron....didn't you tell me you could make stickers from the cricut letters? How do you do that? I ask because when I cut out 1" stickers, I hate adhering them to the paper!

I feel the same way about the coupons! You can't just waste a good coupon (especially the 50% off one!!!).

That 50% off coupon can be evil sometimes!! Refills are a great way to use them though

I LOVE making the letters into stickers!!! I originally bought 5" machine for it...but now that I also have the 1.5"size one...I use that more for my letters. I pretty much avoided making anything that wasn't 2" before then since ahering them was a total pain!

The small one (looks like an X) is under $10 and sooo worth it!

I know! Some layouts really need smaller letters, but the 1.5" size are a pain. So you're telling me there is a machine for $10 that will make them into stickers? I'm buying one tomorrow. And I'm going to look online at how they work now!

Haha, Cindy. I live through you ladies that have one and am jealous! Maybe one of these days. I have two 50% off coupons for Michaels, so I will have to make two trips this week.

The small X one is really handy! I fly through pages now that I use it for my letters. I know that Walmart also had it (at least the Walmart by me).

Oh I don't like to waste coupons either If I can't get something scrappy then Kimber usually get some kind of drawing supplies or I get cake decore stuff. I can always find something to get that I just need.

Yesterday I got a Wilson ball cake pan for Darian's Death Star cake. Then Kimber and I came upon Wall-E cake decore perfect for Wesley's b-day!!!!
