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!!
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.

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.
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!
Happy Birthday to you!!!
Well, later this month Basic Grey is coming out with a new line-Nook & Pantry. LOVE it. I would def get that when it comes out. I would also get some punches (boarder punches), adhesive, clear stamps, chalk inks, and flowers!!!
Hehehe, thanks MommaSaid. My gallery is a bit bare here since I have posted most of my work for years at a couple other sites, including scrapjazz...so I am looking forward to filling up this new gallery =D
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!
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.
Whoo-hoo!! Shopping! Happy birthday and lucky you! If I had $250 to spend on scrap supplies, I would load up on PAPER and fulfill the desires lsited in my wishlist! lol Have fun and good shopping! You'll have to update us with what you got!
How about a small or mini airbrush spray system. I've seen one on the tv show Scrapbookmemories on PBS.
With it you can color over just about anything and make our own embellishments and paper designs!
