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?

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.
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.
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. http://www.scrapbook.com/galleries/461215/view /4140827/...
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!
When I get extra money which is normally birthday money, a gift, I try to get a tool of some type, that I had in my wish list and put off getting. Tools are around for a long time and seem like a good investment.
I love distress inks and mist too, can be very addictive.
great ideas!!! I am a paper freak!!!
I would buy paper or storage stuff, maybey a new album?
See I have (only) 50.00 bucks to spend at m's next saturday which is when my Mother is coming in from McKinney( 1 hr away) so should be fun hoping to get two 3 ring scrapbooks and some (first timer) project life inserts you know pages, and a new smash book!!!! Maybey my MOm can kick in a little dough??? ha hah haha
I love seeing other people's addictions! I feel so enabled. I love paper, and would probably come home with a bag full of it. I have to admit, though, that I'd likely also have more washi tape (to add to my 200+ rolls) and another pair of little scissors. Now the scissors part sounds reasonable, right? Well, trust me, it isn't! For some reason I can't seem to walk out of a store without buying another pair! I don't even do it intentionally - I just get home and there they are! I'm totally addicted. I think I need to make a sign for my wall, "Nothing in Moderation"
