Smile I'm so excited I just HAD to share....

I placed my first order yesterday for Bellas!!! I have seen some adorable cards and loved the girls on them...couldn't for the life of me figure out what a 'Bella' was . So I googled 'Bella card stampin' and viola there was the site to get them! I ordered the Javabellas, the Jammybella and the oh...what was her name, the one in the bathtub. Anyway.. I can't wait to get them! Oh, and my dh gave me cash and told me to get what ever stamping stuff I want for my Mothers day gift. I think I am going to get the SU Spots..I don't have enough to get the big ink pads but I can get the spot. Here is a good question...If your dh gave you $150 and told you to get what ever you wanted...what would you HAVE to buy? And the ladies that have everything...(LOL) what would you suggest I get that I just can't live without?

Sounds like fun! Enjoy shopping! If you don't have a Cuttlebug you should get one..I love mine! Right now I'm saving my money for the new SU catty in July.
Happy Stamping!

You're gonna love the Bellas!

I saw go for the spots. I have them all and love them! I didn't have the cash, or the space to invest in the full size pads so this was a great way to get all the colours. I'd get assorted packs of the paper too so then you have pretty much everything you need to create in any colour you'd like! I always add an assorted pack in some colour family each time I place an order. Then if I find I'm using one colour more than the rest I'll get a pack of it as well.

That is a very dangerous question . . .

Are you sure you want the answer?

Aside from the craft and rubbah scissors, stampin' scrub, pastels, and 12x12 cutter, I don't think $150 would be enough for me. he he he... The items I mentioned are my personal essentials.

I just ordered my first Bella as well. Aren't they adorable! The curly-headed ones look alot like my hair so I can't wait to use them. My order shipped May 2nd and I just can't stand the wait! Have fun with yours!

I don't think there's enough printer paper in the world to print out that long a list

when i had that much in a chunk- i got the many marvelous markers. (i only have about 1/3 to 1/2 of the ink pads, so that gave me ALL the colors) then i added enough ($30) to make it a party so i could get hostess benefits!

i also love love love punches and BG stamps.
SU! CS can't be beat IMO!

or just get MORE bellas!!!

You are going to LOVE the Bellas! Where to begin on how to spend that money, hmmm.....to start with I would get a good cutter, stamp scissors, Ultra clean stamp cleaner, and I would buy the full size ink pads one color family at a time and the assorted paper packs to get you started.

I think I am going to get the spots and the papers to start. I have 2 packs of the soft subtles and 2 of the earth elements. I have a few of the older ink pads like the Forest Foliage, Blue Bliss and a few others. I like my cs cutter (just got one that fits the 12x12 papers so I don't have to butcher the pretty papers to make a card..LOL) I have a ton of stamp sets, besides I don't want to waste ALL the money before the new catty comes out gotta wait to see how many stamp sets I am going to want...but my birthday is June 28th so maybe if I play my cards right I'll get more money to spend on stampin stuff ROFL!! I saw the cuttlebug...but do any of you really use it enough to justify the cost?

I definately agree about the spots. I love mine! When one of my spots needs reinking, I know that is a pad I need to order a large one because I use it a lot. Eventually I'd like to get all the large ones but I know there will be some I'll never use! I also suggest maybe an alphabet set or some good sentiments. Assorted paper is always good and ribbon is always a safe bet. Good luck spending your money! Make sure you "host" the party so you can get the hostess benefits!

Wow! I am a ribbon addict, so I would definitely say ribbon! LOL I agree with the others and take advantage of the hostess benefits.
