Card Samples

sneaky peeky don’t let it leaky…

Ok sistahs,

I am just doing this cuz I can’t hold it in and I feel like i am gonna BUST…

Meet PHOEBE.. I am NOT telling you her last name cuz then you can find her somewhere and I will be MADD..LOL…As I promised, there will be over 20 images in this collection released on Friday.. plus a VERY CLEVER stella and a couple of BUGGIES… so hold on tight sistahs!



Nicky used our COLLAGE PRESS paper from the MARGOT collection.. Honestly Collage Press is one of my FAVORITEST paper lines evah!  She colored her in with pearlescent chalks and dove blender.. is this card not AMAZING? DEELISH?? so now you met Phoebe.  Her character is a little bit sassy, a little bit GOTH (but not much..just a hint), she is very very very pretty, whimsical.. and she has A LOT OF family coming.  She has travelled very far to come and join us here at Bellaland.  Everyone who has walked into this store and met her and her family have FREAAAAKKKKED out. I bet you will too!

So whaddya thinky?

Here’s another little  something that should put a smile on your face.  Anyone who knows me, knows that my style is very “different” … a little “eclectic” shall we say? hmmmmmm?  My jewellery always causes conversations cuz I love to pick up different pieces.. Yes, I am juvenile at heart.. Yes, my own mother blames herself for me thinking that I am 4… I ADMIT IT.  But this was SOOO VERY CUTE!!! I couldn’t resist!  I saw it in the window of a store.. ON A MANNEQUIN and made the store owner DISMANTLE it for me..LOL.. I mean, the enameling, the HAIR, the BLING, the GLASSSSSSESSSSSS.. could you have resisted? (probably but just humor me sistahs!)

Ya, I am crazy

Ya, I am crazy


Mwah to da sistahs who are young at heart

  19. Joanne B says:

    Love love love the Phoebe!! She’s so sweet.
    I’m roaring out loud at you and the necklace. I can just HEAR you squealing with delight and I’m dying at you making the store woman dis-assemble the mannequin to get at it. I’m the same way when I’m at the Gap and there is ONE shirt left for the boys that I MUST have. The woman rolls her eyes when she sees me coming in (even though she thinks I don’t notice.)

    You kill me, you just couldn’t hold that secret a moment more could you! LOL! But I’m glad, because she’s CA-UTE!

    PS Why do I always forget to answer the question and have to do this twice?

    Ohhhh Emily,
    I love the new line, wink wink… I really think that you should have bought 2 of that beautiful necklace. You should have one for a prize for the best card made with the new stamps. Or you could just send it to me cause you know how much I admired it when I was in on Tues. What a beautiful job Nicky did on this card. Will definately be in on this class.
