WELCOME TO BLOGABELLA

it’s BELLARIFIC FRIDAY! and our INVENTORY SALE CONTINUES AND some WINNAHS!

Hiya sistahs!

I hope you had a great week :) .

We have been so busy with our INVENTORY SALE that I decided to keep it going a little longer and adding new goodies to it!  We have removed the items that have been sold out and returned to regular price.  If you’re interested in a NOT-SO-DAMAGING- RETAIL-THERAPY-SESSION, click HERE.. the sales are AWESOME… our planner stamps are AMAZING.. 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).. I cannot hide from my sistahs LOL

OK  I have also been behind in announcing our CONTRIBUTIN’ winnahs on our blog!! I will catch up next month and do this monthly.. so sorry my sistahs!
