Ten Things {from Michael’s simply surfaces collection}

Has anyone had a chance to check out the new Simply Surfaces collection at Michaels?  I had the chance to just wander the store (by myself!!) a few weeks ago and I spent most of my time perusing the new line.  I pretty much want all of it.  Check this awesomeness out!

First off, the wood plaques and laser-cut frames are really popular right now and these are both affordable and beautiful.  This is just a small sampling of what they had available.

There’s an entire section of photo props that can be embellished/painted/etc.  The girls love this kind of stuff so I had to buy a few items and I’m sure I’ll be adding to my collection in future visits.    And check out the wood banner pieces!  Eeek!

More of the photo props…love the chalkboard stuff, too.

Here are the pieces I bought that day.  I could have sworn I got a hat, too, but it didn’t make it home.

I bought some of the small banner pieces, which I’ll be using soon.  Can’t beat $0.29!

Seriously, just looking at these photos make me want to jump in the car and go back right now.  🙂

They also have a much better selection of wooden letters to choose from than they used to, including these (that I love…I know, I’m being repetitious).

I have a thing for ampersands. I don’t know why, but this isn’t the first one that I’ve acquired recently…

Tell me this stuff isn’t awesome. I dare you. 😉

  1. I LOVE ampersands too!!! Even love the name:) Don’t have much of a collection though:( I will definitely be visiting Michael’s now that I’ve seen all of these great finds…thank you!

  2. Hi Rebekah,

    How did you go about painting the items you picked up from the simply surfaces collection at Michaels? What kind of paint or markers did you use.

    Thanks,
    Mel

    1. I used chalkboard paint on the pennants, and the others I mostly did with acrylics. A few I covered with Mod Podge and then glitter. You can use just about anything on them – they’re pretty awesome! 🙂

  3. Can anyone help. I loved the 4 in letters that was in this collection. I am tring to make my granddaughter a banner with her name. Every micheals I try is out of the U. And it doesn’t show this collection online

  4. Bought some of these earlier this week – they were 70% off!!! Talk about a bargain!!! I showed restraint and only came home with a small stack of what I felt I would actually use soon, but oooooooh the temptation to hoard….

  5. I just bought the laser cut bird feeder (4.99$ then 50% off) and a beautiful small laser cut butterfly (which I will attach from fishing line to hang a few inches below the feeder (.99$ then 50% off)). Soooo excited about these beauties!!! Glad you enjoy them too. 🙂
