It's my birthday today (October 8th here in Australia!) and my dad and stepmom sent me a lovely GC to SB.com's shopping area (wasn't that nice?!) so if you had $250 to spend on scrappy supplies what would you get? I am drooling over all the new Prima goodies, and some new paper, but what have you guys seen lately that you must have?

Smooch? I saw this but what is it exactly...any pages you might show me using it. And I am definately getting some Stickles. I love Stickles and there is no way a girl can have too many bottles of glittery goodness.

Happy Birthday! Whenever I get a GC (or really any time I go shopping) I ALWAYS check out the clearance aisle first! That way, if I find anything I like, I stretch that dollar... But specifically, if you have a new big ticket item you want, Cricut, Wishblade, etc look at those or you could get boxes and boxes of smaller inexpensive things. I think I'd spend it in one shot though to save on shipping. Oh what a happy problem to have! Good luck!

Wow! that's awesome! I wish I had that much to spend too! LOL!
If there are any big/expensive things that you have wanted/needed, now is the time to get it!
I myself would get lots and lots of Prima! Also, some of the new lines that are out now, Tim Holtz stuff, and probably some punches.
Have fun and be sure to show us what you get!!

WOW---best present EVER!!

I would stock up on patterned paper and things that I would normally deem "too expensive" to buy with my own money. I'd probably pick up some Cricut carts too! Have fun and happy birthday!

Hello fellow Down Underer! Are there any specific projects you are working on at the moment that need jazzed up or that you need supplies/ideas for? As you have the money as a gift I would also probably get something special that you could use over and over such as a Cuttlebug, some type of storage/organisation or some punches. That way the gift keeps on giving

Alcohol inks and the new pen you can fill with the inks and some glossy cardstock or acrylic albums or letters to play with the inks.
More Smooch which is pearlized ink and comes in a "nail polish" bottle with a brush....dries fast..LOVE it.
Bling and flowers from Prima
Lots of wonderful patterned paper in all the lines above with embellies to match.
A selection of clear stamps and lots of different colors and types of ink pads.
D-ring albums which I have found are perfect for my "fat" layouts (the ones with lots of flowers and thick embellies).
Border punches and the new ones that also do corners.
Some cool tools I wouldn't normally buy cuz of the cost.
I would try to save some of the money for later cuz there are always new cool things coming out.
Alphabet stickers especially Thickers.


Happy Birthday and what a generous gift. Have a great time shopping.

I'd go for bigger ticket items, too. Lately I've been eyeing the Clip-it-up and the Scotch ATG. Then round it out with pp kits from Cosmo and Sassafras Lass.

Happy Birthday!

I'd try to split it up a bit between tools that will last and goodies that make it all so fun!

Happy Birthday! From just reading down the list of what everyone else wants, I would get a "happy" headache trying to figure out what to get.
Whatever you get you sure will have a ball using it!
