Happy Birthday~ I have seen many things listed above that I would suggest so no need to repeat.

What I will say is I would buy things that have a life, not one time use stuff for a good portion of the gift money and then a few frivolous things.

You know you will always need adhesive (an ATG is the way to go), glue dots and cardstock is another staple, If you have a cricut, than maybe some extra blades and mats. If you make cards maybe a scor pal would be handy for you. Like to emboss....maybe a heat gun and powders. Acrylic and rubber stamps are good too.

And look for things you want that you cannot get locally.

Hope these suggestions help.

Happy Birthday! What a fabulous gift to receive--have so much fun picking your goodies out! I LOVE stamps, so I would get a few sets of stamps for sure, some more glimmer mists, some yummy primas, a border punch, and a couple of the pp packs that I have been eyeing. If there are any tools, or more expensive items you have been wanting, this would be a great chance to get something good!

Thanks a BUNCH ladies! I took advice from a lot of you, and bought a lot of resusable goodies...paint, stickles, templates etc. Here is a summary of my haul:

-Bunches of the new Prima...flowers, jeweled butterflies, pearls and blingy goodies. I so adore Prima!

-A couple colours of Glimmer Mist (I wanted Pearl but they were out so I got irridescent gold).

-A few of those COOL doodling templates by Crafter's Workshop. Thank you to MommaSaid for the rec, I am going to have a BALL with those I can tell.

-Some pretty paper from BasicGrey, Cosmo Cricket, Pink Paisley and Bazzill Bling CS.

-Some BasicGrey Stamps.

-Some Distress Stickles...I couldn't resist after reading a review that said they were like "shiny dirt!"

-Some Thickers in various colours and sizes.

I got a few other odds and ends, but WOW what fun I had, and no guilt at all since it was a prezzie. Thanks for helping with all your suggestions. You ladies are all so lovely and helpful.

This is a fun thread! I've loved reading what everyone else would get, and thinking about what I'd get.

I would get a bind it all and some goodies to go with it. I'd get the Eskimo Kisses and Urban Prairie lines from Basic Grey. I might even get another clip it up for storing my clear stamps.

I would get some Martha Stewart Punches - especially the Punch Around The Page ones. I would also buy every color of Stickle. And every color of Zing Embossing Powder. Every color of StazOn Ink. Also some Cricut Carts. Lots of paper. Oh! And the pack of all the pretty Martha Stewart Glitters!

As you can see, I have lots of things I want to stock up on!

I love Prima stuff, so I think that would be the first on my must buy list, basic grey papers, stickles, some glimmer mist, umm...I think that is about it, but for sure Prima!

Happy birthday! I'm sure you'll have a great time using all the goodies you bought. I, too, would have bought the primas stuff except I would have added all the embroidered/stitched papers. I have all the smooch colors and my favorite is the pumpkin.
