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!!!!
(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!
