For the next 3 days i'll have a page open with my order so I can go through everything that's on it's way and i'll look at all the projects people have used the items and i'll just drive myself nuts for the next 3 days waiting and looking and checking the tracking number.

Am I the only one who does this? This is the 3rd order this month. lol So glad shipping is finally more affordable and orders seem to be filled faster too. I hadn't place an order in almost 2 years. lol I'm happily impressed sb.com

No, you're not alone. I love the feature where you can look at projects that other people have done. I have been very pleased with the shipping prices too. This is a great place to shop!

Yah that project feature is awesome.

Yah I wish I had enough money to place a $99 order but I don't to get that free ship. Plus I don't have the patience to wait for the free ship. lol When I want stuff I want them now. lol

Glad i'm not alone

I am in Canada so the shipping is higher. Still great prices as we pay 13% tax on items here.

But my aunt is visiting soon so I can ship to her place and save on shipping and when she gets here in a month, it will be like Christmas for me.

That's a great idea Jane! I'm in IL and place my order yesterday and it shipped today so i'm hoping for at least thursday

So excited! Ordered a hand full of papers from 2 bobunny lines and an echo park line and a couple embellies to go with and some lace and thickers and a small butterfly die!

I've got to start making this a once a month only thing though. lol Not a 3 times a month thing. lol

For me it is an annual thing because I already spend too much.

I don't usually buy paper as it can be heavy and I don't want it to be wrecked in her suitcase.

So I ordered tools. I could have done without another pair of scissors but I want to make flowers and the tools will be useful. Not that I want to make them "as" 3-D. Still want to put them on pages.

Looks like we are all gonna have loads of fun when we get our packages!!!!

I'm such a paper junkie so it looks like i'll probably only order from here what I can't find at my local store as I love when I can support them as they are our only small store left.

And heck with my shipping being $7.99 this last time it's cheaper than driving into the lss. But they didn't have what I ordered and I was there already once at the beginning of the month. lol

Thank you! I am having a bit of fun Today was my last day of work for the season so yay! More time to play.

I'm loving this little butterfly die and think it'll be fun with the ep paper line I bought and with tons of other lo's too. It's been years since i've bought a die.

So excited to have new stuff to play with and now that I know how easy and fast it is to order from here i'm supper excited!

Haha, I know what you mean, though it goes the other way for me - I put things on my wish list, and when I go to make an order and I'm trying to thin down my cart, I check out all the projects linked to the stuff I want, to see what looks the coolest in practice.

I have lots on my wish list too. I try not to look at my wish list unless I fully intend to place an order or i'll go nuts wanting something else new. lol

Yah loving that die and kinda fun to emboss it too. So many things to do with it.

Now one of these days I need to get scrapping instead of just looking at it all.

My kiddo is at his dad's for 2-3 weeks and I really miss him! So should really make myself get some scrapping done

Yup. I love that the store gives project examples. In fact, I just got an order last week. The shipping was reasonable and the order arrived quickly. I've been ordering from this site for close to 10 years and have never had a problem.

I appreciate the email they send out after an order, linking the related projects. That's a whole day of oohing and aahing.

After I cut the image out with my sidekick i'll stick it in an embossing folder and run it through my texture boutique embosser to emboss the butterfly.

And wow I placed the order and they shipped it the same day. lol Kinda a big order and hoping it gets here tomorrow but more likely saturday cause of the 4th.

Isn't there a tan embossing mat you can use with the Sidekick as well? I have one for my Cuttlebug. Mindy, you leave the die cut in the die, then place the silicone mat next to the die's cutting edge and reduce the thickness of the "sandwich" by changing one of your cutting plates.

The sizzlits aren't designed to emboss though I don't think? lol

Oh, are they the ones with the foam? In that case no, I don't think they would emboss actually in the die. Oh you know what? I'm thinking of framelits. I'm sorry for confusing you, people.

But as Cindy said, if you have embossing folders then you can run the finished die-cut through and add a textured pattern to it, whatever it is.

Yep it's the foam kind. I hadn't bought a new die for my sidekick in probably 9 years and it's just like my old ones.

It's and adorable butterfly and can't wait to actually sit down and use it on a page but have yard work to do today.

And also now i'm finding I could probably use some more embossing folders. lol

It's a really pretty butterfly. My mind is thinking up gelatos, and Distress Inks with a brayer, and alcohol inks (not that I have any of that stuff except a few Distress Inks )

Actually a friend sent me some really darling butterflies, years ago. She had cut them out of scraps of glossy photo paper, and coloured them with alcohol inks. The surface stayed glossy, and the inks blended deliciously. She got addicted to making them and ended up mailing a handful to all her scrappy friends because she had too many! Give it a try?

Oh Rosey your giving me some WONDERFUL ideas! You should see my poor desk right now! I still have some prize pack stuff out and bought some scrappy stuff from a friend and that order I placed from here on the 1st is already here today too. I'm in heaven and now have no room to scrapbook! lol

But at least the patio is cleaned of and still gotta get out and spray for weeds! Maybe this evening i'll get my poor desk cleaned off!

My son won't be back from his dads yet for another week or 2. and have to clean his room. I so gotta stop with the excuses and sit down and SCRAP!!!!

Glad to be of service ma'am.

I've been umming and aahing over whether to get gelatos for a while. Ditto alcohol inks. I'm pretty much at my limit with space to put new things until I use up some of my stash. Or reorganise. Or both.

Ya when some were on your spending freeze I just had to have some gelatos. Yah I have yet to use them. lol

I'm at my limits too probably and should get rid of some things too I guess. I have a hard time with getting rids of scrappy stuff... ugh

I think I need a nap before cleaning off my desk!
