Card Samples

happy saturday sistahs!

It’s a crazy blizzardy day here in Toronto.. blech.  We are at work trying to catch up but unfortunately, the volume has eaten us up alive.  SOOO there will be a delay in shipping.  I am sooo sorry! We will try our bestest to get goodies out to you as soon as possible and if anything is a rush, as usual, please email and we will try to ship ASAP!

 I have added some more goodies into the what’s new section! So take a looky!  I have had a lot of requests for my ribbon winders and off on a search I went and found them to offer to you.. they are amazing!  My intention was to decorate them for you but just didn’t have the time 🙁 but they are alterable 🙂

 Ok, here’s what we have been thinking.  Nicky’s  galabella class is coming up and we have had several requests from sistahs outside of Toronto if we can package up the card class with colored copies of the cards and all the components and make a card class kit to send to you!  Would you be up for that?  In terms of pricepoint, I can include the stamps (but the price would be higher) or I can do the set (paper and embellishments) and then advise which stamps we used which would bring the cost down… of course I do believe it would be easier to have everything in one bag but it is up to DA SISTAHS!


would you be up for it?   would love to hear your opinion.. and perhaps we could randomly pick a winner and prepare a kit for the winner to see what it would look like?  Even if your answer is NO, please don’t hesitate as this would be time consuming and would love to hear the truth


mwah to da sistahs who may or MAY NOT be interested in a card class kit (designed by Nickabella of course)




  1. Dawn says:

    Em, As a us customer, I would love to take a “class”. I think it’s a great idea. I would recomend that you have kits available w/ or w/o stamps, for those who may already own the recc stamp. I hope you catch up with your shipping soon. I am sure it is most overwhelming. I wish I could help you.

  2. Suzanne says:

    I would love this type of “class”. I would prefer w/o the stamps since I already have quite a few bellas. I would just be able to add the ones I didn’t have to my shopping cart before checking out!

  3. mcbetty says:

    Prefer without the stamp — can add on if I don’t have it or substitute if I don’t want that particular one.

  4. Nicole says:

    would totally buy a class kit! I think maybe the option of with or without stamp(s) for those who might already have it, but either way, I’d buy the class kit!

  5. Linda says:

    I would love to have the kits include the stamps. It would be the perfect way for me to get the Bella’s. I keep procrastinating.

  6. Suzy Pearson says:

    I think it is a great idea!! I would leave the stamps out to be separate. Many of us may already have the particular stamps that are used. I have done this before. It’s really important to include detailed color instructions for those of us who can’t be there in person. Ellen Hutson does a stamp of the month kit and it works well.

  7. Wendi says:

    I love this idea! I would say leave the stamps separate, unless it’s a new stamp. And – it would be total cool if future new stamps had a kit to go with them. I love the stamps and buy them in bulk, but sometimes don’t use them for months waiting for an idea to hit me. If you included a ‘project’ with new stamps we would all have something to get started on right away with it. Just my 2 cents.

  8. Jamie Morris says:

    that would be awesome to get the kit. I just wonder because we might have the stamp, so could you offer it both ways so that if we don’t have it we can get it?? Is it a brand new stamp?? So excited to see what you have to come up with.

  9. Kerry says:

    Em, I think you and Nicky should come to Bonny Scotland and do a class here : )…I know I would loooooove that LOL. And I’m sure you would feel right at home with the weather!!!

  10. Christine Bower says:

    This is a great idea! I have a few bella’s, but this would be a great way to add to my collection! Maybe offer the 2 options……….with stamps and without stamps. That way people that already have that stamp can just get the “class”.

  11. Cathy M says:

    This would be so cool to have the chance to purchase a class kit with or without stamps. This would be one way to collect more of your AWESOME stamps. Can’t wait to hear if this will be offered or not.
    Have a great and creative weekend.

  12. Mary Duffek says:

    There is no way that I could come to Canada for one of your wonderful classes….and I would love to be able to purchase a kit and pretend I was apart of your class….(LOL!)

    Sorry about the weather…it finally stopped snowing here, but still cold. (Wisconsin)….Thanks Em!

  13. Mary Duffek says:

    hey Em, just checked out the “New” section! Totally lovey the new fairies, and the color family baubles!!! Sweetness….Lovey it!

  14. allison says:

    What a great idea! I would be up for that! I would say let people have the choice to buy with or without the stamps. Cant wait to see what you come up with!

  15. Dawn says:

    I would love a class kit, especially if it had a brand new bella in it.

  16. joanne says:

    I would love to be able to buy a kit. Without the bella (of course if I didn’t have her I’d be buying her anyway;)

  17. Katie Skiff says:

    I want one!! That would be fun…

  18. Oh I would so love it! I was so sad that I couldn’t do a class but to have a kit HOW AWESOME would that be.. I’m so there! 🙂

  19. Karen says:

    Love it! Stamp separate in case we have it already.

  20. Sandye Curry says:

    If Toronto were not so far from Kentucky, I’d be there. This sounds like the perfect solution!

  21. Susan says:

    I’d love to order a class and I’d take the stamps! If it was one I had, it would be a great gift to share with my Bella Sistah! I’m right on board with it and if you need someone to check it out for you, I’m your bella!

  22. Mary says:

    Em, this is a wonderful idea! I would love to be able to order a class kit. I would like the option with or without stamps so if I already have them I could get the kit without the stamps. Of course if I don’t, it would likely be another NECESSARY purchase! Thanks for always thinking of da sistahs!

  23. Tracey says:

    I would love to order a class with the option with or without the stamp….depending if I already have it, of course!!

  24. Zoe Randall says:

    I think us bella girls would buy anything from you Em. Having a good price, practical shipping, and saving a drive to pick it up at a store would be ideal…

  25. VIcki Burns says:

    I would love it! I have bought so many stamps, it would be nice to have the option of no stamps in case I already have them. But either way would work. Hope you get some R&R time soon!

  26. Armie says:

    I’d love to buy the kit, absolutely yes!! But I’d say leave the stamp separate in case I already have/bought it. Thanks for offering! You’re so sweet!! Wish I can visit Canada and see your store..I’m sure it’s beyond wonderful!! Take care and smile!! :0)

  27. Karalyn says:

    I think the card kit is a great idea, and I think the stamps should be included!!!!!!!!!!

  28. Anita says:

    I would totally buy the kits – minus the Bellas since I already have a bunch of them. It would be so fun to come take your class, but it’s a little far to come from Seattle!

  29. Inkylin says:

    I love the idea of a class kit, but without stamps and maybe offer a discount on the stamp purchases used in the kit in case the buyer does not have them. And who of course would only buy just those stamps used the kit? Just my opinion here.


  30. Cristina Rowan says:

    I would love to take the class !!! Im overseas but would love to purchase the kit. It would be a good idea to let us know which stamps will be used in advance so we could have the option to add the ones we dont have already :o)

  31. Judy says:

    I would love to see the kits available with or without stamps. There are a few of us that don’t own as many of the stamps as we’d like to and that option would be wonderful. However, which ever way is easier for you, I would be totally satisfied!

  32. Debby says:

    Love the class kit idea. Perhaps an option to purchase with or without the stamp as there are many Bella collectors out there! Have a great day!

  33. MelissaS says:

    I think card kits are a great idea for those of us who are not close enough to attend a class! That the parts would all come, ready for stamping and assembling is a great attraction. And they would make nice gifts for those friends you want to introduce to this fantastic addiction (oops, I mean hobby!)

    Thanks for sharing!

  34. Aimee says:

    I think maybe two versions of the kit as some may already have the stamp or may want to use a different bella…

  35. Cindy Coffman says:

    Great idea on the class kit! I think you should have the option of with or without the stamp!!

    Cindy C.

  36. Sabena says:

    I love the idea of a class kit (tho I’d like the idea of the travellin’ Bella show even bettah….. we all know that isn’t possible cuz you need to be at home designing new bellas!)

    I would prefer a kit with the bella available separately- cuz there’s a few of us bellaholics who have a good number of the bellas already!

    Here’s hoping spring arrives soon back east! mwah!

  37. Kim Forsyth says:

    I would totally buy the kit, could it be offered with stamps optional maybe?

  38. Gay Ferland says:

    What a great idea! I have seen other companies do the same thing and the results are great! Thanks for the great idea!!

  39. Kim Gruetzmacher says:

    EM….I think that is a GREAT idea! Being new to the Bella Sitstahs I would like the kit that has the stamps in the kit! I hope that you decide to do this b/c I am GREATLY interested!

  40. Hope says:

    I love the idea! I think I would purchase a kit. And, if I didn’t have the stamp, I would purchase the stamp. I think it would be best to plan the kits without the stamps, for me anyway.

    I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I know they’ll be awesome! thanks, Em!

  41. Jamie L. says:

    I think a kit would be great but with the stamps optional in case they are already owned by those purchasing it. 🙂

  42. Diane says:

    Loving the kit idea.

  43. Addictabella Angela says:


    I would totally love a card designed by Nickabella!! Are you kidding me? I would prefer the option to either purchase the stamp or not. I have so many Bellas (a true Addictabella) that I wouldn’t want to double up if I already had one. Lovey the idea!


  44. Jeanne says:

    Great idea! Personally, I’d liek to see the option for with or without the stamp. Like many, have a bunch o’bellas, so might not want a duplicate.
    Could you do two prices–one with stamp, one without?
    Loverly idea!

  45. Allison says:

    I would to have the kit. But I would prefer without the stamps. That way if I didn’t like the stamps used I could substitute them. Or buy just a few of them instead of all of them. Hope it works out. This sounds like a great idea.

  46. Christine says:

    I think that’s a great idea! I’d rather buy without the stamp, mostly because I have a bunch already and want to avoid buying duplicates.

    Keep up the great work, Em! You’re the best!


  47. Would love to have a kit available. Since I am new to bella I would like the kit to include stamps.

    Now off to look around.

  48. Kandi says:


    Count me in, I would love to have a card kit from your class!!!


  49. Jess Willison says:

    Em – I would LOVE a “class”. That would be so awesome! I would prefer the option of without the stamps….then I could order what was needed if I didn’t have it.

    Also, no worries on the shipping…..I’ll get it when it gets here! But I can’t wait….and I check the status of it everyday!

  50. Nona says:

    I would love a kit, but would prefer the stamp not added (unless it was brand new!!!).

    Thanks so much! I’m lovin the bellas.


  51. Alexis Hilgert says:

    Oooh – a class in a box (bag…) would be fabulous! I think I’d personally prefer the option without the stamps as I’d buy more kits if I didn’t have to re-buy stamps that I already have! If it would be possible to make the kits without AND with the stamps, that may be a good idea too though!

  52. Chrystal Perrin says:

    I would prefer the kit without the stamps. I may already have them 🙂 If I don’t have them, I could add them on.

  53. Rosa says:

    Em, I would lovie a class kit… The kit would be great… It would be nice to offer them with or without the stamp. That way you have the option of purchasing either or…. Thanx…. Can’t wait to see what’s in store……

  54. Perrie Sanders says:

    WHOOO-HOOO……a class kit by mail…how AWESOME that would be for us folks who don’t live close by (bummer for us!!!). A kit with or without stamps…you decide! Your stamps are cuter than EVAH and you totally ROCK this world!!!! Thanks for all you do!

  55. Beth Mak says:

    Class in a box – would love this. Since I’ve recently started purchasing Bella I would like to add to the collection, but then again don’t want duplicates. If need be I would purchase w/Bella included. Optimum would be to have a designated Bella as an ‘add-on.’

  56. Jen says:

    Awesome – please, please do a kit!

  57. Patti says:

    I think the class kit is a fab idea! I agree with the majority on I guess there would need to be an option of w or w/o stamp b/c I may all ready have it. However, if I didn’t I would prefer this as a way to add to my collection. And since I have little stamp time, having it all together would help me out in getting cards made. Also sometimes there are similar bellas (like ones for birthdays, flowers, etc.) so maybe the kit can just have a choice of bella of equal value? I will look forward to your decision.

  58. Stacie says:

    Ok, it took me twice to figure out your math, thought you wanted me to just write the numbers:)
    I don’t have any Bella’s YET….I have to wait until next month. SO for now I just drool over them and all your beautiful creations.
    I would love to buy a card class. I think best option would be to have one with stamp and one without. But honestly it would depend on the pricing. I am on a tight budget and have to really watch what I spend. My husband keeps telling me I have a sickness…he says, you need pants, you need shoes, but all you want to buy are “craft” stuff!!! It is sooo much more fun to buy stamps and paper and ribbons then it is to go to the mall with 3 kids under 4 and try on clothes!! Hope your week gets better!

  59. BettinaBella says:

    Why not offer it both ways. For those of us who are Bella crazed and have almost every Bella stamp – a package with jus the card items would be great. For those just dipping their feet into the pool, a package with the Bella stamp would be nice.

  60. Angie says:

    I think a card class kit would be great. I was totally bummed when I found out you were having a galabella class because I’m in Hawaii and can’t go! The next best thing would be to be in the gala long distance! And why not add in just the stamped images for the cards instead of the actual stamps? That would help save on shipping, and besides, a person can always buy the stamps seperately.

  61. Cindy Vernon says:

    I would love to see a class kit! Maybe leave the stamps out, we could then buy them if we want, or if we have them already we can use them or choose to substitute for stamps we have in our stash…

  62. Andrea M. says:

    I would totally LOVE a card kit class. I can’t buy them on a monthly basis as money is sometimes very tight, but if you had them on your website (with or without stamps) to buy, then I could get them when I had the $$ for them.

  63. Michelle says:

    I think having the option of with or without the stamp would be good. Then anyone who already has it can still participate in the class.

    Michelle T

  64. Mitzi Koons says:

    I think a kit is a great idea! I would love too see all future bella releases come with a kit and I’m sure there’s many who would love to be on autoship for all new bellas with a kit :o) If you design kits for previously released bellas, I would offer it with or without the stamps as an option. I can’t think of a single negative!

  65. Brilliant idea – I personally would opt for getting the stamps (being a fairly new convert to the world o’ rubbah) – but you would probably want to offer without the stamps for those enthusiasts who have already stocked up on their favorite bellas.

  66. Angela K says:

    I would love this!! I was all sad because I am no where near you to come to an actuall class!! I would love the kit with stamps, but I think having them opptional would be better for everyone. Oh, I can’t wait, I’ll be checking back offten to see!!

  67. Kimberly says:

    Very nice idea, especially since u are so far away! As far as with or without the stamps I guess it would really depend on the price you are looking at. I would be interested….good luck!

  68. ami carter says:

    love that idea. any reason to have more bellas, and spend more$$$$$$$$.
    thanks Em

  69. Chris says:

    WOW..a card kit? I think that sounds yummy. I for one, am always looking to see if Em has a new Bella design on her webstore. How does this sound? A new “stamp design” card kit. Perhaps every 2 months or 4 times a year. New stamp exclusive to card class kit. By the sound of things, there could be many peeps sign up for this. I love the idea of new stamp of the month club or something of that sort. That way………….nobody would have to worry about getting something they already have. Just a thought.
    I hope yer feeling better Em…………I think I hear you sigh now and again. LOL.
    Did I mention that we have little or no snow in Nova Scotia? I can see my front lawn. Ouch…….no snowballs paaaaaaaaaaalease! run…………….run…………..

  70. Chris says:

    Why did my post say 12:28 a.m. tomorrow? Huh? Huh? That is 3 hours from now. I think.

  71. Manda says:

    I love this idea…. and I also wanted to sy the kit w/ any new bellas is a great idea…esp. to get the new ones!!!!
    AFter all, I mean, what better way to get all the bella goodies!!!

  72. Lori says:

    I think the class kit is an awesome idea! I’m with most of the others, too–an option to purchase either with or without the stamps would be nice.

  73. Fi says:

    I would love the class kit. I agree with the majority, an option to buy with or without the stamps would be good.

  74. Sara says:

    I would like to have the class kit option to add the stamp on because what if we already have the stamp or want another stamp instead, KWIM? I love this idea though. Your a genius anyway…MWAH babe

  75. Chris E. says:

    Em, I think that would be an awesome idea! I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with. I would be interested.

  76. Krisis says:

    Hello new to this site and would love to try your stamps and have a basketful of stuff in my cart but… I couldn’t find any free shipping codes online. 🙁

  77. Karinn says:

    A card kit would be so much fun! I would love to have the stamp included as well. Even if I already had it, it would be a great gift for me to save that stamp for another stamping friend or secret sister!! 🙂

  78. Aurora says:

    it’s a really great idea.. and I also think it’s good to have the stamps added as an option…

  79. Julia says:

    What a fantabulous idea! Count me in!!!

  80. Sally says:

    I would love to see a card kit, but would prefer with/without option as I have some already.

  81. Debbie says:

    I think a card class kit is a great idea. I would purchase either with or without the stamps. I’ll be watching for them.

  82. Linda SS says:

    Sure wish I lived close and could attend a class in person. But a kit is the next best thing to being there and I think offering kits is a fantastic and fun idea:) I would really like the stamps included because I’d never have too many Bellas.

  83. Theresa says:

    I would lovey a card kit “class” and to be able to add the bella or not would be great (in case I already have the one the kit is using) wish I could just go to a class in person… do you feel about INDIANA? HEEE HEEE HEEE! mwah!
