Surprised to see MME enamel dots, wood veneers (packaged like Prima's and in similar designs) and plenty of PL-type sets by MAMBI (teen, baby, family, marriage, everyday, holiday and sports themed). I will definitely be going back everyday after work.

What part of the country? Here in Clifton, NJ Michaels all we got is the new Snap stuff, and the Recollections knock offs.

I'm in Northern Virginia. The store just put out new stuff; they weren't there last week.

The MME enamel dots are from the Sweetest Thing (Tangerine and Bluebell) Collection. (Approx $4 for 52 dots. Great deal with a coupon.)

The Recollections brand wood veneers are pricier- 18 for $4; they have houses, flowers, leaves, birds and garden animals/insects (bees, dragonfly).

The PL-type cards are MAMBI's Pocket Pages line. I opened the package-- cards are just a tad thinner than the PL Jade kit cards. Each package includes 60 3x4 cards and 12 4x6 cards; each card has a grid background. You can see some great photos of the different types (birthday, love, sports, first day of school, family, friends, marriage, holiday themes) on Mambi's twitter feed.

(edited to correct number of cards in pack)

I went into an M's today for the first time in forever. I was really impressed with the selection they have. I only bought a few things (I have spent plenty elsewhere this past week ).

I almost bought a Brother P-Touch that was on clearance for $20. I have an old one I haven't used in years, and didn't think I'd use it. But...it was PINK! I had a hard time putting it back but I did.

I got the MAMBI cards earlier this week. I plan on doing a PL-style travel album, so I'm collecting everything I can for that. (You didn't mention travel theme, but that's what I got.)

I went there today to look for the Sn@p line and they had nothing... I would have loved to snatch some enamel dots and PL cards! I'll have to try another store.

I was in my M's a week ago and found the Snap stuff. I need to go back and look for the enamel dots and the MAMBI. So excited that they are getting new stuff in. It's very exciting.

I saw the MAMBI cards ($4.99 for 72 cards) and the MME dots, pack with labels, tiny words and the doily cardstock type stickers; chipboard button pack, etc.

Also the Recollections wood veneer.
They also have lots of new washi designs and a couple new Thickers (on trend multi is one of them)

I need another gift card!

At my boy's house, the MME enamel dots (along with all the other items Kim mentioned) were on a small display island in between the registers and the first scrapbooking aisle (where the Smash and Martha Stewart lines reside). The MAMBI Project Pages were in the front panel of that display island. (Last week, the Hello Kitty scrapbooking line occupied that spot.)

I bought some of the new MAMBI cards. I think I finally ended up with the grids.

I also saw the MME but passed. I like their stuff but never seem to use it.

Recollections stuff is 40% off this week... Not sure if that includes the new veneer, but it does say Washi, buttons, bling, flowers.

And Iris cases are super cheap!

Snap is 25% off...

I should probably stay home today

Kim, if you notice the ad says "new styles" I am sure it is the Recollections brand that are that price. I saw them the other day. Blech! I like mine to match.

Just stopped by mine. Tons of HS stuff on sale buy one get one 50% off. Saw sn@p stuff and recollections knock offs of SC veneers. Searched everywhere for the MME dots but no luck.
Ended up with 4 colorshines, a smash date stamp, sn@p alpha stickers and some foam brushes and smash band on huge clearance.

I visited another boy's house today. The variance in items across different stores is amazing. They had the MAMBI cards, but in much smaller quantities. No MME dots (even though my "home" store has it); plenty of washi (which is 40% off right now), including a replica of Freckled Fawn's "sidewalk chalk" washi, but in a wider roll. (FF no longer carries that washi; I should have picked up more than one roll of the Recollecitons brand - darn!

Also, there were a lot more scrapbook paper pads labeled "hot buy" (only $5 each) at this store, including the DCWV Glitzy Glitter Stacks. I love those glitter stacks; the paper is just like AC's POW Glitter paper: thinner, flexible, and glitter stays on the card b/c it is imbedded.

I should have stayed away. I spent waaay too much time Saturday at all 3 of our big box stores looking for the buckles for those stinkin survival bracelets.

I was happy to steel the MAMBI cards and picked up a couple of those. I never found the enamel dots...grrr. Our store is smaller and probably doesn't have everything the bigger ones have. There are great deals on the storage! I don't have space for more cubes. Otherwise, I would have splurged on several more.

I haven't seen the ad, but there were signs right there on the display. Interestingly, the items were not ringing up with the discount, so the cashier had to manually do the discount. So maybe it was a local thing not a nationwide deal. I dunno.

I called my store to find out which ones were on the Hot Buy sale and they had no idea what I was talking about. I still need to go in because some paper pads are 50% off and I need adhesive so I'll investigate on my own.

FYI, my store didn't know which pads were the "hot buy" so they were ringing them all in at $5!

Also, like someone else mentioned, the Heidi Swapp stuff is BOGO half off (signage) but not ringing up at the register. They made the price adjustment for me.

OMG. I bought SO much of the Recollections stuff at 60% off today! Some flowers, almost all of the wood veneer boxes, a little bling, brads, and washi. Got the new Snap album (I LOVE THAT SIZE!!!) and several packages of page protectors. A few new EK punches (the filmstrip, wave, and cheetah) and resisted all paper I spent a good bit, but the amount of stuff I got was CRAZY!

For those looking for MAMBI stuff, I just found some at the boy store in Flint, Michigan. I think our Recollections stuff was only 40% off though - weird. (I bought some labels and tape, and they were def 40%.)

I went to one store about 40 minutes away and found all the new stuff, even the Silhouette stuff. I was so excited. I picked up some of the Recollections washi, some organizational bins, a pack of the MAMBI PL card packs and some of the MME enamel dots (not on sale.) I was so thrilled!!

Also I'm not sure if this has been announced here but J's is now carrying Dear Lizzy's 5th and Frolic line. I simply adore that line and will have been picking things up with coupons when I am in the area.

I stopped by our M's since I was in town yesterday, but was in a hurry and didn't get to look for everything you all mentioned. I did buy one of the little boxes of veneer shapes (I've been waiting forever for SC's little stars) and a pkg. of MME dots. Ours didn't have the HS products on sale, but it did look like they had re-stocked those. I'll have to stop by again when I have more time (and $). Thanks Littlemeesy for telling us about it. Maria

Maria, you're welcome! Always happy to share my finds. My M's is sooo close to me (I pass by it on the way home everyday), so I'm always popping in there to browse. I'll eventually pick up more of the MAMBI sets and try the page protectors too.

PSA- The girl's house has printable coupons (50% off) on their website that are valid until June 30. I printed out a ton to use in the coming months. Really useful, since the boy's house coupons are typically only "40% off" and not available at times.

If you're not finding the new stuff, it might show up soon. I ran ack in today to pick up some of the sale flower pots for gifts, and more items had appeared. The MAMBI stuff was out before, but today the new recollections embellishments and the MME stuff was out.

Jen, I didn't buy those but the other three packs (Gratitude, Family, Summer) had a few list type prompts either numeral or check-the-box. I've broken up my sets and can't count, but i guess maybe 3-4 of this type per pack.
