bellarific friday

It’s BELLARIFIC FRIDAY featuring our NEW stamp of the month AND an announcement!

Hiya sistahs!  Hope you are as excited as I am with this new release.. the releases are all labours of love and they are all pieces of me, my family, and my memories :).. so welcome to da Bella’s life!

Moving along I am SO happy to announce that we have two new Baberoonis on da team and I can’t wait to introduce you!  First of all, they are not BOTH baberoonis.. WE HAVE A FELLAROONI.. BABEAFELLA, in da house!  Seriously for reals… we may need to control ourselves with how adorable and talented he is! Meet Steveafella… aka Stephen Kropf  .  (@stephenkropf) I had the honour of meeting him at the Kathy Rac event here in Bolton in September.. I saw his work.. I spoke to his sweet face and I was in love.  I knew he had to be with us. At that same event, I just happened to be sitting next to another AMAZING person….  I mean I don’t ask for this, it just comes to me.. and THEN I run after it LOL.  Her name is Sandy Boone (@threeroomstudio) and I FELL HARD for her too.. we got along so well.. laughed the whole day.. and then I peeked at her work and almost COLLAPSED.. I NEEDED TO OWN HER TOO.. ok I am a bit harsh… just LEASE her for a while.. LOL.. LOVE!  Sandy has her own small clear stamp company called THREE ROOM STUDIO.. she has adorable stamp sets and I would love for you to go take a look at them!  They are so much fun and I firmly believe in helping sistahs in the industry… Well NICE AND KIND sistahs at least 🙂

SO without further ADO, let’s meet our two newbies with a big round of APPLAUSE and a comment or two making them feel welcome.

Our theme for our babe/fella roonis (this AIN’T gonna be easy for me).. was to feature our brand new Stamp of the Month, CHRISTMAS TUG OF WAR.  The die is also 20% off all month long but there are limited quantities so once they are gone, they are gone rainchecks.. so HURRY!

  10. Gail Plaskiewicz says:

    Welcome to Steve and another Sandy! When we had 2 of the same name people in my preschool it was Sandy W and Sandy P. We didn’t really have 2 Sandy’s but we had 2 of another name that I don’t remember. We used the first letter of the last names when we talked to them. In my mom’s knitting bunch there is a Sandy 1 and Sandy 2. Just thought I would pass that on. I love all the cards but why don’t I see mine? I sent in 3! Am I sending them in wrong? I am sending them to you. Should I resend for next week? Let me know and I can’t wait to see what the new Steve and Sandy do next!

  18. Tracey Magner says:

    I was behind on my emails and read them out of order, so on Saturdays I already welcomed Mr. Steveafella, so now I would like to welcome Ms. Sandybella. These ladies are so talented, I seriously get so depressed when I look at their cards because I so wish I could color and create half as good as they all do, they are ALL so amazing and so talented, really you ladies are!!!! I have watched countless videos on coloring from your site, it has helped me so I do appreciate that so much, but maybe in 20 or 30 years I could be close to their level, LOL. You ALL ROCK !!!!!! P.S. I love the stamp especially because I have a Persian cat and a bulldog, so it is perfect for me.

  19. Nancy Vondra says:

    Wow! What awesome cards!!! Y’all sure have sparked my creativity! From all different ways to color the animal to cut-aways to brightly printed mat papers to matting the sentiment…incredible! Thank you for sharing…each and everyone of you!!!

  20. Susan says:

    I love cats! Only in my household the tug of war would be between cat and cat…and cat…and cat! I have 4 cats!

  21. Marjorie Dumontier says:

    Welcome to Stephen and Sandy ! I think it’s so cool that guys seem to give some interest to card making lately. All their creations today are just awesome, very promising.

  22. Annette says:

    Wow, gorgeous cards, and fabulous to see a fella on the team. His colouring is amazing and I’m very jealous! :0) xx
