I made a little money on the side. I'm hitting a local scrap tore tonight. What would you get? I've got a decent stash already, cricut with sure cuts, lots of inks and stickles and bling. A dozen books of paper. A cuttlebug and a bunch of folders. I'm thinking I need more alcohol inks... And what else?

I personally would probably buy lots of paper. You can never have too much paper.

I would probably buy one of the newer paper collections and some embellies to go with it. I'm a paper freak!

Good ideas. You know, I have one set of spellbinders and I've barely used them. It made a really deep etch in my plate and it makes me nervous lol. Unsure if I needed to buy something else for it. I forget. THey are foreign to me lol.

Paper is a good idea. I should buy more individual sheets that I really like and stop buying huge packs for just the few pages I want.

Don't worry about the etches in your plates, it's normal.

I would probably get paper and dies or stamps.

I would buy dies and punches, too. My plate (B and C) for Cuttlebug are deeply etched and have been used for years. I was nervous when that first happened but now I know that is to be expected and not to worry. Happy shopping.

A little Washi tape would be nice to add if you don't have any.
I have lots but not at this house. I left it at our get away house and now I have none to use right now.

I would probably spend half of it on paper because I Looove paper! But I would also get some punches, washi tape, and maybe some new flowers. If I had any left, I might get some paint and/or canvases. I like to paint sometimes too.

Great ideas here. I ended up not getting paper because I want in love with their selection of that. But I did get lots of alcohol ink,some flowers, loose micro glitter, think inka gold or something, never seen it before but it's cool. And some other stuff. Not sure how to link on mobile.

Oh and I tinkered with my nestabilities and I'm feeling more confident now. There are some on my local buy and sell site so I may get more of those next.

When I get scrapbook money I like to go on ebay and buy things in "lots". You can get a bunch of Jolee's for 1/4-1/5th the original prices and lots more that way. Other thing that I think really picks a paper up is ribbon and trim! Websters pages and Melissa Frances do great jobs. There are so many ways to use them, from page book marks to borders, to frames. I also love to buy thigs in sets as it makes it so much easier to match when the color pallets match. One set of paper, embellishments etc. usually costs about 75.00. So, two sets would be my 130 dollars!
