Well I just spent $100 to purchase a cricut! So does that count:)

If I had another $100 I would probably buy the computer software that goes with that.

Ditto SCAL. I think that's what I'm asking for for Mother's Day/my birthday.

If I didn't already have a great Scraping stash I would buy the following:
-DCWV stacks(on sale or with coupon)
-Good adhesive (Xyron and Glue Dots)
-Very good paper trimmer(MM Precision Trimmer (with a coupon))
-MM Distressing Kit (with a coupon)
-Good pair of scissors (Cutterbee with coupon)
-Pens for journaling
-Border punch (Fiskars)

That's all that comes to mind at the moment. And as you see I would only buy them when they are on sale or a coupon can be used.

I've been eyeing a few Papertrey stamps sets (everyday button bits, and a few backgrounds and the sets that match up with nesties dies and Marvy circle and scallop circle punches). I'd have to buy about $100 to make it worth the shipping. I'd like to try copic markers too, but I need stamps first! Fun question!

Copics! I have over 200 but I want the whole darned set. I'm also big into stamping right now, so I'd probably buy more Magnolia, House Mouse, or Elisabeth Bell stamps. They're my current faves.

SCAL = Sure Cuts A Lot software (You can cut fonts from your computer with your Cricut)

I think I would get the Make the Cut software. From what I understand same basic principle yet a little easier to learn.

with the newest update to SCAL2 they are virtually the same.........

me I always go for tools and paper. You can never go wrong with the tools and basic paper to make your own embellishments with.

house mouse is so cool! an ex and I used to buy their stuff and send cards, etc to each other. i had one or two stamps, but I think I gave them away cause I just wasn't using them, lol.

probably more cricut cartridges. right now I'm eying a wedding one because I'm making an album for my bff. I do have SCAL, but haven't loaded it yet. I expected to change that now that I got a tutorial this weekend.

I love embellies, even more than paper...so probably rub-ons, some more bling, brads...

Where can you get SCAL or Making the Cut?
Funny no one mentioned that expensive glue gun thingy. I was toying with the idea of getting one. BUT I need repositional glue, with my Herma squares I can move things around.
If I had $100. I think I'd by the new Basic Grey line, Some pp by Bella Blvd. as I've never had that line.

I would buy a bunch of glimmer mist and everything I need to start heat embossing (something I've wanted to do, but haven't wanted to spend the money on) and a bunch of embossing folders for my new toy!

Haha you ladies are so funny at what you would do with $100! I asked becuase I sell Pampered Chef and make an average of $100 a month since i dont do too many shows. Anyways, this is my own spending money so I thought you guys could help me make my decisions easier.

After much concideration I have decided to go with buying a couple of Carts from Joann's since they are on sale. It was either that or a cuttlebug. I really want to try my hand at embossing at some point!

Well.. I'd buy the entire Sassafras Nerdy Bird and Apple Jack collections. The rest I would spend on cardstock and punches.

$100 US or $100 CDN??

I would go and buy the Tim Holtz masks that I don't have, the destress inks I don't have, some cardstock, maybe a house mouse stamp or two. I thnk I would get some adhesive, glue dots and pop dots. If there was anything left I would possibly get a new cart or a nice iced cap from Tim Horten's and play with all the stuff I just bought.

You can purchase it online (which is what I did)
If you email me privately, I will send you the link. I have loaded it on our PC, but have not had time to "work" with it. I still have a few questions to ask the IT person there.

Hmmm... I love the new Basic Grey.
I can always use a new cart... Ranger stuff. A bag to carry my cricut so it can go out for an adventure. Oh my what to buy... I got $50 in bday money that I just don't know what I really want to spend it on...

I need a new album... and I can always use more alphabets, paper and fun stuff! Hmmm... Oh maybe I would keep saving and get a digital die-cut machine like the Gazelle or Sihloette!

I would definitely load up on Glimmer Mist and the stencils and stamps that can work together with the mist. I love that stuff!

I'd send it to my credit card for things already purchased, lol - Sizzix texture boutique and a few embossing folders, ATG gun.

If it was truly new fun money I think I'd put it toward a set of Copics.

I'd put in toward my credit card, too.

If I HAVE to spend it, it would probably go for designer paper and/or organizational items.

I would buy the next cricut cartridge on my list -- the Heritage one.

My current obsession is paper, pretty patterned paper and thick heavey textured cardstock...so I am sure I would buy some of that.

And I am wanting to try the glimmer mist everyone is talking about....and stickles (are they the same as glitter glue? if so...never mind, I got that at J's for a dollar yesterday).

And I would buy some shelving for my scraproom / office...

I am sure I would overspend and not stop at 100 bucks...that seems to be my trend lately...UHGGGG.

if I had a $100...I would make a copy of one of my scrapbooks and gift it to a family member

maybe turn a 12 x 12 book into an 8 x 8 book and then add several customized pages for that person.

Things at the top of my list right now are a Martha Stewart glitter set, more border punches, several sizes of circle punches, new pp lines from my favorite brands, more glimmer mist, more stamps & more flowers. Narrowing it down to $100 is the hard part!
