It’s BELLARIFIC FRIDAY! (on Sunday.. hmph)

Hiya sistahs!  Well it has certainly been one of those weeks and I am SO sorry for this late post.  it’s the first minute I have had to myself!  I was in Ohio for most of the week (I still cannot believe how INDEPENDENT I was by driving BY MESELF!  I never do things like that!)  but I have to say it felt good going by myself and feeling like ” I could do it”..  But now that I did it.. I think I am going to be going QUITE often.  First because I LOVE it there LOL.. second of all I LOVE it there.  LOL.  You sistahs are going to be SO happy with the setup.. they are so organized.. so wonderful. and so quick.. you are going to get your stampies in NO time.  I did not anticipate the volume we received during this release.. so I am hoping all the orders will be out by this week!

Just a couple of pictures from Ohio to share

 

These are just 3 of my FAVORITEST girls.. Cheryl, Mo and Judy

3 of my FAVORITEST Ohio chicklets

working away

My girls working away on Bella GOOOODNESSS

I also wanted to show you what RAW rubber looks like.. Rubber is basically like “sap” from a tree and this is what it looks like solidified.  COOL AY?

rawrubber

ok enough blabla.. Im late enough with this post LOL

This week we had an INSPIRATION photo to play with.. and it is SO what my neighborhood looks like today.  Fall is my FAVORITE season.. the smell.. the leaves.. the coolness… what’s your fave season?

It’s RELEASE day!! It’s RELEASE DAY!! IT’S RELEASE DAY SISTAHS!!

 

Today is FINALLY the day sistahs.

PLEASE READ carefully as there is some great news and some information that is important to remember! First I have to thank all DA sistahs for hanging in with me.. following on facebook and continuing your loyalty to da bella over the years.  I am also so very  thankful for the comments and emails I have received from sistahs telling me how happy and excited they are!!  This made da bella’s heart SINGGGG!! so thank you for taking the time out of your busy days to play along :) .. I am so thankful and grateful for you all!

I also would like to thank ELAINEABELLA for doing such a fabulous job colouring ALL of our images and for our OUTSTANDING Design TEAM (Amyrabella, Angelabella, Danabella, Lesliebella, Sandiebella, Stephabella, Tamabella, Tracybella, and tracyMACabella)  for coming up with AMAZING samples.. THANK YOUUUUU!!!!

Some announcements!

(1)  WE HAVE CHANGED OUR SHIPPING ORIGIN!  

All of our goodies will be shipped from our new distribution facility in Ohio. We could not handle the volume here in Canada anymore and had to have some major changes which we have been working on for the past YEAR!   As much as I LOVED and was SO PROUD being a Canadian company, I couldn’t handle the volume of it all anymore and NEEDED to make SURE that the quality of our product would NOT be compromised.    Well it finally came to fruition and I am free to announce it to my sistahs!  I am SO excited about this as it leaves me time to focus on MORE artwork.. MORE frequent releases.. MORE involvement with YOU.  This was what I have wanted for so long and it is finally coming to life!!   Having said this, we are hoping that this transition is as SEAMLESS as possible.  There, of course, may be some hiccups.. so please bear with us.    Da bella is going to Ohio next week to make sure all runs smoothly.. So the sooner you place your orders, the sooner they get in a queue but there MAY BE SOME DELAYS.. So again.. please forgive us but this is going to be an amazing thing.  All da US sistahs will get their shipments much QUICKER via USPS.. and we have accommodated shipping charges for our Canadian and International sistahs.   You can find our shipping rates HERE.  I think you will be pleased !

 

(2) We have a new website!!  We are hoping that you enjoy it and that it is prettier to look at.. easier to navigate and just an all around better shopping experience!

we have enabled “SHARE” buttons.. so if you see an image, card, or project  you love, share it on Pinterest, Facebook, instagram!  It will grow our community and allow us to have even more fun!

 

(3)  45 new images can be found in our WHAT’S NEW section found HERE.. enjoy!

 

(4)  The website is still a work in progress!  I will be adding more and more digital images (as well as card samples) to our collection so I urge you to keep checking!  DIGITAL IMAGES will ONLY BE older discontinued images.  None of the most recent releases/uptown girls etc.. will be offered digitally .

 

(5) if you have any questions at all, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not hesitate to contact me!  That’s what I am here for!

ok Enough BLABLA… here is the new release in ALL of it’s GRANDEUR. There are images I have not yet shown on facebook or my blog.. so grab a coffee or a tea.. sit back.. scroll and have fun!  I would love to hear feedback on if you love it.. what you would like to see in imagery.. etc… I think you are gonna get sick of me LOL Here is da STAMPING BELLA OCT 2014 RELEASE!  Enjoy! I wanted to shout out to ELAINEABELLA for colouring all of the images on the site AND to  our amazing DT who have made some samples.. so you will find them UNDER the image shown.  READY? SET? HERE WE GO!

it’s bellarific friday, and a sneak peek!

Hiya sistahs.. OYYYY what a rough week I had :(  I am so sorry for my disappearance and KILLING the momentum of our release sneak peeks!

It was our new year this week AND my grandmother’s unveiling (this is a Jewish tradition where you go to the cemetery to “unveil” the monument and say your final goodbyes).. So we drove to Montreal and back in two days..tried to see our family stuffed in those days.. don’t ask..

Then my DARLING DAUGHTER decided to break her wrist AGAIN last night so we were in the emergency room from 7:30pm to 3:00 pm… grrr.. so now you know why I have been  MIA :(

Anyway I wanted to share another Christmas image with you… Christine Grove has hit it out of the ballpark again!.. her images are so full of personality it’s unbelievable.. don’t you agree?  Never have I seen a stamp like this around!  And each one of these Christmas Soldiers have a personality of their own…I think they may even be troublemakers LOL… Actually I KNOW they are..

Meet CHRISTMAS SOLDIERS.. I hope you love them as much as I do :)

christmassoldiers

Not sure you can see the middle one wiggling his butt? LOL.. the other one playing the guitar?  I just LOVE them!!!

And in this week’s roundup you will see a card made with them :)

First before we start our Bellarific Friday “session” lol I need to express my deepest and most sincere sympathies to Amanda Reed’s (AKA Amandabella) family.  Amanda passed away suddenly yesterday morning and since hearing this news, I have been devastated.  Amanda was so talented, so full of life, and was  such an amazing part of our team a little while ago.  I am so so so sad to hear this terrible news :(.

I know there will be a bit of a somber feeling to this post… let’s just commemorate Amanda with images that came to life through colouring.. just what she was so good at doing.

This week’s theme was a sketch

2014-08-22 17 01 19

On Monday we have a scheduled minor operation to remove this itchy bump he has.. the vet is worried that something built a home in there and is growing :(  talk about gross.  I am hoping all goes smoothly for this love of my life (shh don’t tell the kids)

So that is the highlight of my week.
