da ORIGIN of “DA DOT”

Sistahs,

you know.. I mean YOU KNOW me by now, and realize that I am 100% bonafide MENTAL when it comes to embellishments, tools, storage.. hmmmmm… I think Embellishments are my FORTE (there should be a french accent at the end of the word but don’t have that “luxury” on this keyboard..LOL)…

So Nicky and I met with a company who could do anything we wanted… (loaded situation, I know)… So I LOVED my bauble and I wanted something a little more opaque, a little fancy shmancy.. a little STUNNING.. without a back (as I detest putting holes in my paper and then trying to cover up the back of a brad..LOL– detest is a little strong.. I no likey when there are holes in the back of my papers.. there.  that’s bettah).. Anyway, upon discussion and months of developments and samples.. DA DOTS came to fruition. Now I had butterflies and KNOTS in my tummy before we opened the first box… did everything I want come true?  were the colours chosen good?  or is it just a box of potatoes that came from overseas (honestly I used the word POTATO.. ask Ryan..LOL)… Anyway.. It was EVERYTHING I WANTED AND MORE.  It will take a few days to load the 100 different styles (either go big or go home is my philosophy..LOL).

Here is a new stamp called funky clothesline with new sentiments.. let’s hang out and hang in there.. I LOVE THIS BRA.. LOL!

here’s a closeup showing da HALOWEEN orange dots.. yum! (these are the small 5mm ones)– p.s. not loving that color name so it may change..LOL

the great thing about these are that (1) they are flatbacks.. so no need for holes just a glOO dOt.  (LOL-like how that looks).. the glitter, crackle and marble ones (which I will give more samples of tomorrow) are contained in the material of the dot.. so NOOOO dusting, no flyaways.. nice and clean and  BOOODIFUL :0

 You likey my new exclusive Bella Dotties?

I LOOOOOVEY them (and you)

mwah!

    Well slap me happy da DOTS are fabuuuuuu!!!!!
    You are flippin brilliant – I so hate the holes in my projects too, hate using hammer tools or crop-o-dilly things – this DOT is (as the british say it) “Spot on” (sorry, couldn’t help myself)

    And then to top it all off you post the most amazing new stamp – I can’t even express how much I LOOOOOOOOVE the clothes line. It is a “must own” stamp.

    Who would have thought a Dot could bring such joy?

  15. Robb_eeie says:

    Hey Miss Em ~~ how or why would your Sistah’s EVER question or challenge anything that YOU were in love with, especially when it comes to paper crafting products?

    Since hearing about these *DA DOTS* last Fall, I never once doubted they would be the most ASTONISHING, STUNNING, SHOCKING, STARTLING, BREATHTAKING, AWESOME, STUPENDOUS, PHENOMENAL, MIND-BLOWING JAW-DROPPING **DA DOTS** that this World has ever encountered 🙂

    [[Thanks to my Oxford Thesaurus for the above outline HA!]]

    Does this mean next time I see you, you’ll have *DA DOTS* stuck to every part of your body and clothing, and let’s not forget the hair? hahaha And I’m sure Ryan will HAVE to have a few stuck here and there, just to promote your newest and greatest product —> *DA DOTS*.

    You are such a sweetheart Emily, and from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for all your continued and constant labour you put forth, in your search to discover only the very best for your Sistah’s.

    MWWAHHH To Each & Every *Da Dot* In Emily’s Warehouse.

  16. They look great, Em! And methinks I spotted some forthcoming Bellarific stamps on your new SCS banner! If I’m not mistaken, I saw a Bella stepping on a scale with YAY arms (right now I need one stepping on a scale and then threatening said scale with a weapon of some sort…) and a new Chichiboulie fairy. So am I imagining things, or do I have da good eyes?

    Mwah to the Queen Bella, we loves you!

  17. Jamie says:

    Unfortunately my schedule till fall is kinda hectic – what with the kids’ sports and all, so opportunities to come down will be few and far between. I’ll just have to make less stops and spend more at each one.
