A teeny tiny RECAP thursday

and I mean TEENY TINY.. LOL so I added something else :)

Because we were so busy with our Crazy Tuesday sale and our new WWW post, I didn’t post much on social media.. TOO BEEEZY

Here’s one card by Paulineabella that I did post and I hope you love it as much as I do!

in this card Paulineabella used our CHICKS RULE stamp..

isnt it adorable??

chicksrulePAULINEABELLA

I also wanted to show you one of my other collections (and this is just a portion of it LOL… WASHI TAPE.. omg.  I remember when I brought washi tape into my retail store about 3-5 years before ANYONE knew what it was :).. and every since then I have been smitten.

One of my favorite local Etsy shops I love to support is a shop called PAPER PLUS CLOTH

Rowena has a GORGEOUS shop with such GORGEOUS tapes .. i use them on my cards and in all of my journals..  She is away until Feb 6th but put your email address in the link I gave you above and you will receive an email when she is back and then drool all over your computers :)

Take a look at my WONDER WASHI WHEEL! I put them all on an embroidery hoop so I can see them all and just tear where I need to tear.  I smart, no?

washiwheel

A VERY small post but it was packed with inspiration :)

Mwah!

Em

what’s WWW you ask?

well it’s WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS WITH… of course!  you couldn’t guess that?  COME ON sistahs.  Seriously. LOL

My goal for 2016 was to communicate with my sistahs more.. and I have created a new WEDNESDAY “activity” for us!

Every month we will feature a new card every Wednesday by our featured WWW guest designers.. some will be featured for multiple months.. some for single months.. it depends on what my girls could commit to.  I have now booked the year so we will be having LOTSA LOTSA fun on wednesdays together!! WOOHOO

SO our WWW designer for this month is….. drumroll please…….  Our very own loveable and squooshable PAULABELLA.  Paulabellla started with us and has been a personal BFF for many many years.  She used to come and teach at our amazing store and she is just one special sistah. (I made her commit to about 3 months LOL..I woulda forced her for 12 but felt cheeky)… Paula makes MAGIC with her favorite method of colouring.. PRISMACOLOR pencils and Odorless mineral spirits and a paper stump.  MAGIC I tell ya!

Today’s card by Paulabella is using TINY TOWNIE PENELOPE has a pencil.  I hope you enjoy it and get inspired by it as much as I do :)

I PLANNED it this way.. and I am gonna add more days to talk to you :)  I think I am going to have a “BELLA’S FAVORITE” day.. each week I will highlight one item that I  LOVE  and use all the time.. not necessarily crafty.. could be a shampoo.. an ingredient.. something I love and hopefully we can share ideas.. I love bouncing ideas off my sistahs :)  We are also introducing a GUEST DESIGNER every month… I can’t wait to tell you who our guest designer is in Feb!!!  OHHH and this release?  35 images and dies.. hopefully in the next 4 weeks which means we can start sneak peeks really soon :)  SO EXCITED!!!!

Ok enough blabla.  Let’s talk about today’s Bellarific Friday post shall we?

I am working on samples using them.. I LOVE THEM SO SO MUCH and at 50% off? you CANNOT go wrong!

I have also been SOOO busy with this new release coming.. I think you will all FAINT.  for REALS.  over 35 images.  I haven’t stopped working on these and our DT is so busy making samples.  Every time they send me a new card sample, I faint all over again.. It’s THAT GOOD.  And we are aiming for a 1st week feb release date HOPEFULLY.. if not, at least some sneak peeks because we are busy making DIES for these too!! WOOHOOO.

I have so many stories to tell about this release.. it’s gonna be fun :)  Hope you will join me when the time comes!  I will be sure to add any announcement on our  FACEBOOK PAGE.. or in our SISTAHOOD GROUP on facebook.. on INSTAGRAM (@stampingbella) or on TWITTER (@stampingbella)..
