Celebrating 50000! It's time for some BLOG CANDY!

YAY it's blog candy time again!!!
Thank you again to all of my readers. It has truly been a pleasure posting. I have hit many milestones recently including posting over 100 cards in my SCS gallery and I am just shy of posting 150 messages to my blog. Watch for the next blog candy around 75000.

I had fun collecting my blog candy over the past month. I included lots of my favourite things including an AWESOME sakura gelly roll pen...the kind that leaves GLITTER!!!! I also just received my marvy punches today so I am including lots of scalloped punches too in oval, square and circles.

As you know, I love NEW things (don't we all???). Tell me about a tool or recent stamp/stamp set that is a must have for you. You don't have to own it, perhaps it is on your wish list. Enable me! Links are welcome. I would love to add some hot and trendy items to my ever growing collection of goodies. I have no idea how we are going to move all this stuff in 2 years. Fortunately DH's work pays for our move and the packers come in and deal with the mess *lol* Maybe I will make them a thank you "for dealing with my addiction" card while they are packing *wink*.



You will receive 3 packages of clear stamps, a mounting block, American craft brads, some spool ribbon, some Primas, an assortment of Marvy scallop punches, some 6x6 DP from SU! and Basic Grey, a sparkly Gelly Roll pen and an Alli Miles card!

Remember to check below for new posts since this post is dated for the closing day (June 2nd). The winner will be announced the morning of June 3rd.

Because I love to stamp and you do too!
Alli

YEah, what fun...blog candy! I have really been enjoying my paper piercer lately. I just got it a few months ago and now nearly every card I create has some element of piercing on it. I could not live without my patterned paper though. I am NUTS over PP. I think I have a sickness with PP. Lately I've seen some adorable monkey stamps from Stampendous that I am dying to get. It's killing me. Ugh!

Wow! Congrats on 50,000 hits! Well deserved! I have my eye on those beautiful Lockhart butterflies...

The BlogHore said...

Well, I've been buying paper and stamps and ink for a while but only just started collecting all the little things that help with our "craft". I Versamark PEN, ink refills, bone folder, cotton balls, a tub of baby wipes...LOL! All these little things that you need to try all the really fun techniques. Congratulations on 50,000 hits - that is really remarkable.

Jewels said...

Hi! I love your blog. I can see why so many people stop by for inspiration. I must say, a "must have" in my studio is my Palette ink. It's that mix between dye and pigment formula that makes it so versatile. (Check it out here-)
http://julieg.ismyangel.net/Products/Default.aspx?cid=204&pid=200
Of course, Noir is the color I use most. It is great for indexing your unmounted stamps (if you use the type with Creative Cling.) Using unmounted stamps gives me more room for what else? More stamps! (See indexing instructions here -)

Hi Alison, I am lusting for a cuttlebug. Well, it's one of the things that I make me whimper when I enter a craft store and realize I must pass by.On a more realistic note, I really like what you do with those fab large scalloped circle punches...do they exist in Victoria?
Loved you blog, right from the beginning,
Rachael

CAKVD said...

Hello. Here are my current must haves: Polka Dots and Paisleys by SU, Michaels Studio G clear stamps (any of them), Cricut, Target $1 items, and huge paperclips! Thanks!

shelley dupont said...

I looove your blog and lurk daily!
I think you are very talented and love that you are canadian!
Right now I can't live without my new marvy scalloped punches and my paper piercer!

Mary C. said...

I saw a great bendy ruler in a scrapbook magazine but couldn't find it anywhere. Then I found a bendable ruler for drafting at Staples. Much less expensive and I love using it for curves on all size cards.

Judy S said...

The one tool that I use all the time is my paper piercer. I love the look of faux stitching! The one tool I wish I had is the Score-It! Congrats on your 50,000 hits!

Regina D. said...

Congrats on all those hits. They're well-deserved because your blog is fantastic. My favorite tool is my scalloped oval punch and am chomping at the bit to get the square and circle.

Estivalia said...

Congrats on 50k! I've been visiting daily for some weeks, but this is actually my first comment.

I'm a big fan of distressing, so I added to my wishlist the Basic Grey Precision Set (http://www.basicgrey.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=40&products_id=897)
but I don't own it -yet :p

Beth said...

My most favorite, latest purchase is my Magnetic Precision Mat from BG! I'm not sure how I "survived" without it. Not only is it great for a cutting mat but anything that needs to stay put does (like layering ribbons, etc.)

Kerry J. said...

What awesome blog candy! I am lusting over bellas and papertrey stamps right now as well as the cuttlebug. What I'd really like to have are these Doodlebug paper frills (I love all things doodlebug!). Here is a cdn link - they have great customer service too! http://www.scrapbooking.ca/doodlebugfrills.htm
Congrats on 50,000 hits! Love your blog!

Stampin' Project Junkie! said...

Hi Alli!! Congrats on your 50,000 sooo amazing!!!! I just love the bellas these days! I want them ALL!! There so cute!!!!

Jennifer Magreevy said...

Congrats on 50,000!!! Well, what DON'T I want?!?! I currently have my eye on a whole bunch of the Marvy Scalloped Punches, the new Martha Stewart Punches, those cute kittie stamps from Stampendous, the VersaMagic stamp pads I see tons of people using that I just can't find in England...Prisma markers, Copic markers, a Bind-it-all...obviously my wish list is loooooooong!!

Alexis R said...

Wooohooo! First let me say I love you blog!!! I got a CB for MOther's Day and yet to play with it but I am in love Stickles!!!! LOVE IT!!! I didn't know what I was missing...girls get some Stickles!!! An dof course there is tons of stuff on my wish list...Marvy scallop punches, Prisma pencils....

kristahubbard2002 said...

I have some Memory Box penguins that I love to use. I also always seem to use mounting tape/dimensionals. Can't seem to live without it nowadays!

Anonymous said...

I'm jonesing for the copic markers...but that isn't going to happen unless i hit the lottery.....the scor-pal looks cool.

Jackie said...

Conrgratulations - 50,000 - WOW!! Copic markers are on my when-my-ship-comes-in list but before then I want a paper drill and a Bind-It-All. I love making journals and both of those tools would make it easier.

Toni said...

Well, I must admit- I cannot find that gel glitter pen anywhere! And the harder it is to find, the more I need it!

papermemories said...

I just got a chance to use Bellas on the weekend...I think I need some of my very own!

I also just received two sets from Papertreyink...they need to be broken in!

Danita said...

Oooh, blog candy! Yippee! I don't know if you've tried this yet, but I was recently given a Crop-a-dile by We R Memory Makers. It r*o*c*k*s!!! It makes setting eyelets soooo easy! And it cuts through chipboard and thick plastic like buttah!! :)

Cheryl said...

I can't enable you yet but I am soooo... anxious to receive my scor-pal. It is supposed to be shipped at the end of this week or beginning of next week. I can just see all the cute folds and boxes I can make with it. Thanks for the blog candy.
Cheryl Sims

Charlene Weaver said...

Blog candy - what fun. First, I absolutely LOVE your blog and check it regularly. Everything is so inspiring. As for me, my wish list includes a Cuttlebug and scalloped punches. I have seen so many amazing cards made with these items and desperately want some for my very own!

Anouk Martin said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!I am hopelessly adickted to Patterned paper. I can't get enough. When I see something I like I buy it. Who knows when I will use it, I MUST have it. Some is so pretty I just want to sit quietly and gently fondle it. Do you think I need help?

Debi said...

Congratulations on 50,000!!! That is quite an accomplishment! The biggest tool that I have started using and collecting is punches. I am just now beginning to use the scalloped punches and they are an awesome buy! Love them. Keep coming up with great posts!!! Your blog is the best!

StampOwl said...

Congratulations on 50K hits. I guess I couldn't live without my tria markers I love them sooooo much.Tria's are similar to Copic which seem to be the fav in the US. I am also wondering what I did before the cuttlebug embossing folders!

Alicia said...

Congrats on the big Hit numbers!!
I got a whole lot of Prisma Color markers and now am excited to learn how to color with them besides just solid coloring! Need to learn shading!

Elizabeth Royalty said...

congrats on all your achievements! as for something I want... anything and everything from www.impressrubberstamps.com

Peggy S said...

Congrats!! I'm very happy to celebrate with you! :)

At the top of my stamp wishlist are Pink Cat Studio stamps!! I'm a newly converted cat lover, so these kitties are the most fun! I am also eyeing Crafty Secrets sets as I love that vintagey look (even tho it's not my style at all!)

Joan said...

Well my cuttlebug and Bella's are on the top of my list of what I love to use most. But I could add lots more. Great blog candy and Congrats on lots of hits

Peggy Maier said...

Enable YOU??? You must be kidding! You are one of the greatest enablers of all time! I don't know what you lack, but have you any of the cute Penny Black cows or chickens? I just couldn't resist & ordered 3 more yesterday! Thanks for another candy contest!

Nancy said...

Love your blog and the candy! WOW! I've been lovin' my big Primas lately!

HeyHeyPaula said...

A tool I already have that I use all the time is my Cuttlebug and embossing folders. Love them. Something that I'd love to have but haven't been able to get are the scalloped punches - any of them! A girl can hope...!

michelle said...

I love your blog. Congrats on the 50,000 hits! I like the PaperTrey stamps that I recently bought. I never thought I would like the acrylic stamps, but I love these.I also just bought some VersaMagic dew drops chalk ink. I really like the coverage it gives.

Donna said...

Allison, you're amazing. I don't know how you do it. Always updating your blog and always creating such beautiful cards! Again, AMAZING!!!! The things that are on my list (and I will buy as soon as I get to CR) are some scallop punches. I just love them and how they look on cards. Congrats on hitting 50,000. I can't wait for another 2yrs so you can move closer...I hope I'm still here! :-) Hi to your DH and kidlets. Donna

lorrietori said...

Great Blog Candy and CONGRATS on the hits! U ROCK! I preordered the Scorpal and can't wait to receive it! I also started an SU! Marker Club and can't wait to have all of the markers AND the cool case they come in! Thanks!

k.m. said...

Congrats on hitting the 50,000 mark...I really enjoy reading your blog.
Right now, I would have to say that my PaperTrey stamp sets are my "fav". They are really fun to use when making cards.

Brooke S said...

Ali,
I think all stampers should have "French Script" it is as basic as black and white paper to me. It is always the stamp that ties it all together. Hurry Hurry run out and get it! This set is retiring end of June.

Love your Blog. I am partial to Reds we have 4 in our house.

Love, Brooke S

Stamperosity said...

Gee...what an accomplishment! 50,000 hits! There are so many things on my want list...I'm a typical woman...never satisfied. LOL. I have several Amuse stamps as well as Whipper Snapper stamps on my "want" list. They are all so adorable. It's hard to pick just a few!
Hugs,
Lynn

SusanH said...

Wow, great job!! And my fav tool right now is my Scor-It - it's cool to use it to score designs in your cards, not just the fold!!

Laura Barefoot said...

My must-have item(s) are all the new scalloped Marvy punches! I'm staying up until midnight Thursday just to order them. I can't wait to start punchin'!

Splashryan said...

Well, I'm sure you already have some, but I looking forward to getting some bellas at some point. I am trying to save my money for the new SU catty. I'm weak! I need to stay strong....just one more month...lol. Congrats on the hits!. I know I'm a daily lurker! Thank you for inspiring and teaching and sharing your stamping world with us!

Shannon said...

What yummy candy!! I have been wanting to get a Fancy Pants stamp called Pollen Dust. I just looks beautiful. It is top of my wish list. Thanks

chelemom said...

Everyone loves some good Blog candy! On my wish list is those Copic markers....so expensive...holding out!

Regina said...

Congratulations on the 50,000 hits milestone, Alli! That is a whole lot of communication. I love your blog and your art is amazing. My "gotta get it" tool right now is the Scor-Pal. That looks like something that would really be useful. I'm in love with the Bellas, and just seeing the new Cat's Pajamas summer release has made me crazy. Stamp-crazy, that is! Best wishes on your journey to the next number.
Thanks for the inspiration!
Regina

congrats on reaching 50000 hits!

Since starting to look at a few more card making blogs I NEED to get me some giga regular and scalloped shapes!

Just have to find someone that sells them out this way - western australia

libby said...

Congrats on those hits!! This is not anything new to anyone, but lately I cannot live without my Stickles! Love them!!! :-)

Eileen said...

Congrats on the hits! I love the dog cards you've been showing lately -- they're adorable.

Jennie Harper said...

Cool Blog Candy! My newest favorite thing which isn't so new but something I have to have with me all of the time is my Crop-a-Dile. Eyelets are soooo easy now! Something I am desperately wanting is the paper piercing template from Ellen Hutson's store..that thing looks like it ROCKS! Definitely on my want it, gotta get it soon list.

Nice blog and thanks for sharing!
Jennie H.

Tracy.H said...

Wow! What awesome candy! Well the one item I love is my Scor-pal...but you already know about that one! I am lovin' my Bellas lately too! But one of my wants are some of those cute Happy Hopper stamps!

care-in said...

Alli,

Since I've been reading a lot of stampin blogs it seems I've accumulated a lot more stuff! I'm really excited about trying various stamps. I am loving my scallop punches too.

Congrats on a great blog and gallery!

Allison said...

Yeesh...#53? I guess I can't leave the house anymore! I really want those Stampendous flowers: the poppies, the fresh bloom and the agapanthus cluster!

Natalie said...

I would like to get the set of filing tools from Basic Grey to use for covering chipboard pieces with patterned paper.

Anonymous said...

I just got a Bind It All a couple of weeks ago. Looks like a pretty nifty tool.

Anonymous said...

Hi Alli, lately, my favorite thing is my Versamagic chalk ink. I love the softness of it, and will need more colors now!! Thanks for the chance at the candy!!
Denise Bennett

Dina Anker said...

Wow...50,000 hits...about 200 of them are mine! I love your site!!! You've added a few hundred $$ to my visa bill since I started visiting (LOL)!!

Essential items eh - (said like a True Canadian).

Punches!!!! LOVE EM, Can't get along without them.

I can closely add my QuicKutz machine and all that comes with it a close second!!

Stephanie W. said...

Congratulations! I am a daily visitor to your blog and I get TONS of inspiration from you. :c)

Hmm... tools that I love. I would probably die of frustration if I did not have my Adtech glue runner. I tried several different types of glue and glue runners and this one is AWESOME. With all otehr brands, it always seemed as if something was always popping up. And you cannot beat$2.27 for two refills!! I am addicted to DP. I love how a little bit can change the whole feel of your card!

-Steph

jodene said...

Congrats to you. Very desereving. I would love to own some House of Mouse stamps. I know they are not new but still would love to own some. They are so beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

Heather Leech said...

Right now I love Papertrey stamps...I just got my Little Lady set as well...I have to wait till the weekend to have time to use it.
Heather L.

Well Said Cards said...

congrats! I can't live without my Stickles, Paper Tray Ink stamps and I would love to get my hands on some of the new Bellas!

Katie said...

My new WANT is a scalloped punch....i haven't been able to get any or really decide on the first one!

I enjoy your blog...thanks for taking the time!!

Anonymous said...

Wow 50000! This is my first message. my favorite new toy is the cuddlebug. I can't believe I didn't get one sooner. It's so much fun!
Lori

Heather said...

What super candy! I just got finished stamping and this makes me want to do some more!

Let's see, it seems like I am always a little behind the trends, but I am totally obsessed with patterened paper. i just bought the big stack (180 sheets!) from JoAnn's for only 9.99! I thought that was a great deal. And with Beate's new tutorial, I have actually rediscovered my scalloped scissors -- so much fun. I also got a new set at Archiver's last night. It is a clear set and I love it -- all beach themed.

Connie said...

Wow! 50,000 hits...well done! My newest purchases have been a couple sets from My Favorite Things (http://www.mftstamps.com/)
I stumbled upon a stamp store in the Orlando, FL area and evidently Kim (the designer of mft) lives close by and actually does classes at the store! Wish I could have attended one of her classes. I purchased the Dino Mite and Say Charge sets and would have purchased more, but they were out!

Hello, congratulations!
I have to say something that is on my wish list. The Mavy Giga Scallop circle punch! I can't wait to get it! Thanks for the opportunity!
Tracy H.

Melissa said...

Congrats on the hits! That's awesome!

I've been enjoying the Bella images that a friend gave to me so my vote goes for more Bellas!! :)

Linda SS said...

50,000 hits is truly a remarkable feat & in your case, well deserved. I think that my wish list has to include the stamp sets from PaperTrey. And the garden set with the cute strawberry will be the first one I get.

Kirsi said...

I'd really would love to have a scalloped punch.

Snuppeline said...

Congratulations on your huge amount of hits! It's awsome!
There is only one thing on my mind that I really crave for right now (besides breakfast...) and that is to try out the new rubberstamp I bought yesterday from Sandi Miller. Wild daisy.

http://www.usartquest.com/cgi-bin/Shopper.cgi?preadd=action&key=SMF019

I've seen it around for severeal years actually but never got around to find it here in Norway. But yesterday I did and I cant wait to get my hubby and kids out of the house to try it. Sandi Millers rubberstamps are so "clean" allowing me to play with lots of colors, textures, tecniques like perfect pearls, goldleaf etc.

Jan Scholl said...

I want all the bunny stamps from Stampendous. I thought th eHOuse MOuse were so cute and they have now outdone themselves.

And I also need some polkadotted orange ribbon and it appears it comes in every color but that one. ANd I need dark brown Stickles-which they dont make either.

Cheryl said...

Wow! 50,000 hits!!! Congratulations!!! I'm really loving my Big Shot machine right now.

Linzy said...

What a wonderful idea! Well, lets see....
If you don't own a cuttlebug, I would say that's a MUST (even if you just used it for the embossing folders)...if you already have one, then how about a crop-a-dile? They have them in lime green now! Then of course there's the new Gina K stams that are made to go along with the scalloped punches....
I'm running outta ideas! Chances are, you already own everything I'm coming up with anyway! LOL!
Hope I win!
Congrats on your milestone!
*Fingers crossed*
Linzy Martins

Jana Weaver said...

Congrats on more milestones!! That's great.

My current must have is the Little Lady stamp set, and it is on it's way to me! And I'm also drooling over a few of the new GinaK summer designs. Hmmm.

-Jana

foodpartyfun said...

Congrats on the success of your blog! I am so wanting the giga scallop punches to add to my collection of "gotta have" stamping collection. Thanks for a chance to win some of the scallop shapes!

Angel said...

I am in love with those bird stamps. I've been looking at them and think I posted most of the links to them on my blog. http://angel2stamp.wordpress.com/
As far as accessories though.... my Cuttlebug rocks!

Denise said...

The thing I have been dreaming about lately is the roll a bind...I know I want it but I never seem to just go and order it! I'm afraid I won't love it as much as I think I will...

skyviewstamper said...

Congrads on your milestone! I love your blog! My obession right now is a Scor-pal. I've seen so many things done with it that I just gotta have it!!! What's one more tool, right!!!

Lynn said...

Congrats! I'm drooling over the new Cricut Expression, which cuts 12x12 paper. I scrapbook & stamp, so this would be PERFECT. However, the price isn't perfect, so I will just have to keep on admiring it from afar.

Connie said...

Congratulations on your hits. Well love the candy you are giving away. Love your sight. I have a daughter and her name is Allison also. Well I just received my order with the 3-D Crystal Lacquer and my new stickles so I can't wait to play. Smiles for a good day!

Melissa F. said...

How exciting on 50000 hits. Right now I am saving for an ink pad rack. Here is the website www.craftracks.blogspot.com.

Great blog, Congratulations! I really want a cuttlebug and the floral folder that goes with it.

I have been buying sooo much lately as I have just gotten back into stamping and making cards. i am so so so wanting those big punches.. can't get them here *sniff*

Juile Masse said...

Nice candy!! The things I have been wanting lately are some scalloped punches - I don't have any . . . just which ones to get??

Selina said...

Hmm..right now I guess it'd be my paper piercer and Stickles are my favorite things to use! Congrats on your hits - WOW!

Tami said...

Oh! Great blog candy! I guess my most recent "toy"/tool that I couldn't do without is the Crop-A-Dile. I put off buying it trying to use a hole punch instead- however, now that I have the CAD there's no turning back (once I figured out how to use it!). As for Stamp Sets- I love my Paisley Background from SU- I do so much with it- it adds an umph to a card that might be lacking!

jmniffer said...

Oh my, what wonderful blog candy you have collected! I have all kinds of doodads for card making. Lately I am in to DP, brads and ribbon. I bought a large assortment of brads from Oriental Trading and find myself reaching for those often,the sparkling flowers ones are a favorite. Next I will need the sparkling dragon flies.

Mo Moss said...

I would have to say my favorite tools are the scallop punches with my cuttlebug. Now I am waiting for the rectangle punches. I have seen lots of tutorial that show you how to make a rectangle with the square but I am itching for the real thing. You have a wonderful blog, I see it daily

JulieHofer said...

Thanks for a chance to win some wonderful blog candy!! I love my Cuttlebug - especially the embossing folders!

Sue Symens said...

Congrats and thank you!!! My favorite tool is my cuttlebug. There is hardly a time I sit down to stamp that I don't use it. Wish they had more folders and dies. Thanks again, Sue.

Wanda. said...

My favorite new thing is the Cuddle Bug Folders. I found you don't need the machine (where would I put it). You can use a Sizzix (which I have) or you can even use a rolling pin. What's a rolling pin? Do people still buy those??
Congratulations on your blog!

Cheryl K said...

Wow! Congrats on the hits. Awesome stuff. I just got two of the scallop punches and I know I need more. I have the giga circle and the smaller oval one. I love them! So smooth and so much to do with them!!!

kristin o said...

Congrats on hitting a milestone! :) Wow, where do I start? I've just started stalking a bunch of blogs and want all kinds of goodies: Cuttlebug, embossing folders, scalloped punches, sakura glitter and glaze pens, patterned paper from everywhere, and polka dot ribbon!

Susan Liles (susiestampalot) said...

wow, what a "mile"stone!! ha!!
my have to have it set right now is the ladybug set from papertrey. it's on my wish list and i am trying to hold out and be good, but i can't....hold....out....much....LONGERRRR!

Kristina Lewis said...

A stamp set that I must find is Sassafrass Lass (spelling?) "Oliver & Company". There is a totally adorable owl in the set that is not my usual taste, but I am obsessed with ;)! Congratulations on a fabulous blog!

Elaine said...

I have several new favorites of late:
May arts avocado green velvet ribbon, Tsukineko glue pad ink, and primas that come in a tube and have little grid impressions on the petals...oh my they are cute! Lots of colors in one tube to play with too! I bought mine from a lss so I don't have a link - sorry!

Lois Michael said...

Congratulations on all the hits! I am wanting & waiting for the scalloped rectangle punches! I know you can make them with the square but I want to use them as tags like this- http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/.shared/image.html?/photos/uncategorized/2007/05/27/052807_card.jpg
Love your blog-Thanks

Erica said...

I still have to get myself a paper piercer. It is on the top of my wish list :lol:
Congratulations on the hits, keep up the greet work :)

sophia landry said...

wow, 50,000 hits, congrats, though i'me not surprised because its a great blog.
So, do I have to stick to one? It's sooo hard because I have so many loves. Copic Markers are absolutely fab for coloring, Tombow and SU markers for water color, Cuttlebug for texture and dies, Distress inks for aging (so smooth), Versamagic for acrilic and bold stamps, MFT and Lockhart stamps and the list goes on and on. I can't pick just one because there are so many things I use depending on what look I am trying to achieve. Oh ya, and I LOVE Art Institue Glitters, they are perfect for colored glitter. Ugh! somebody stop my fingers.

Bethany Paull said...

Great stuff! I just got some new Rubber Romance stamps from eclectic paperie. http://www.eclecticpaperie.com/rubberromance.html
Haven't even inked them yet!

Jenn Jones said...

Congrats! Thanks for all of your inspiring ideas. You have a great blog...right now I am gathering all kinds of designer paper...I never used it much before but now I am addicted...I would also like to get the scor pal...I think that would be a nice litte extra to have. :)

Carolyn King said...

Congrats on your milestone, Alli!! Wow..too many great things to name but I gotta say my number one thing on my wishlist now is copic markers...gotta have em!!!
My favorite set right now is My Favorite Things "You Take the Cake"--it is a dream to color and play with and since I have so many birthdays in my family---a great set to have.
You can find them at www.mftstamps.com...but I bet you know that!
Congrats again!
Cammie

Amy said...

Great job! I enjoy reading your blog and appreciate all the work you put into it. My favorite tool lately has been my Cuttlebug. Ever since I saw a girlfriend's scrapbook page made with the "Opposites Attract" Cricut cartridge, I have wanted one of those. She made the cutest title out of this font that is cursive lettering. Wow! Maybe for Christmas.

Jenifer said...

I am new to your blog and I find it very helpful and wonderful. you do an excellent job with your tutorials and your cards are georgeous. I am just starting to stamp and find your tips helpful. Keep up the great work and congratulations.

Michelle said...

Congrats on your blog. I love browsing it, you have some wonderful displays . I am wanting some of the new bellas and fellas. As well the magnetic precision mat looks kind of neat, as well that score pal is is starting to look good. Then the stampin' up catty is coming soon... and on and on it goes. Good thing I have an understanding hubby. Keep up the great blog.

Congrats on the hits to you wonderful blog! I make sure to check it everyday cause you make amazing and inspiring cards. I, like you, cannot live without my Papertrey sets, they are wonderful. If you look at my SCS gallery it is filled with Papertrey cards. I am looking forward to getting the new Marvy scalloped rectangle and heart when they are available...preorder tonight on Papertrey!!!
Geny C. (aka Mommy Geny on SCS)

Just one? New stamps - I didn't think I needed any ladybugs but I am changing my mind about that.
Tools? I need a paper piercer - that little touch does so much to add to a card.
Inks? Just about any!
My motorhome is bursting at the seams, so I guess I will just have to dream.
Congratulations on your blog.

Great blog candy! Congrats on 50,000!

I am really liking all the cuddle bug folders! I don't own a cuddle bug because I am a demo and hooked on SU! products but I am seriousely in awe over the cute cards made with the cuddle bug!

melissa roth said...

I enjoy stalking your inspiring blog and am personally responsible for many of your hits:) I am a paperholic. I don't need any, I just keep buying & buying. My wish list includes Bella stamps. If I'd quit buying paper, maybe I could afford them.

Amie said...

What great blog candy! My latest desire is the newest crop-o-dile (green I think) that punches holes further into a page or card. Yum!

Jenny J said...

Congrats on your hits!! I recently got a paper piercer and I just love it. On my wish list is any of those fabulous Mary scalloped punches.

kitcat said...

congrats on the big 50 000! I am a subscriber to your blog and enjoy every addition you add, thanks for the inspiration! My fave tool right now is the new border punch tool by tonic! It makes it possible to do those scallop edges myself and tons of others, even has a measure to make sure everything is evenly spaced and in a perfect line! My wish list is always there, but I do seem to love the Papertray stamps and I am a fan of CTMH paper because you can sand it and age it so easily, also their black is the richest darkest black ever! Congrats again!

Lilian said...

wow! congratulations on 50K! :)
i love your blog, so i'm not surprised. thanks for sharing your creativity.

rebecca said...

I'm a sucker for any kind of paper. I used to make paper and love everything about it -- the organic nature of it, the colors and designs, the feel. I'd say it's the best tool I have. Oh, yeah, there's all those new punches, too, but what would I use them on, if it weren't for paper? Thank you for your enthusiasm and inspiration. It is easy to see why you have so many regular visitors. Count me among them.

Mendi McMahan said...

Congratulations on reaching 50,000 hits! That is truly a milestone! As far as tools, I could not live without my Cuttlebug. I want to use it on every card!

Renée said...

Cool, congrats! My fav tool I have is my mat pack from SU, I use it all the time! A tool I've been eyeing for a while, is the Bind-It-All. Very cool looking tool and lots of uses!

Judith A. Novak said...

One of my favorite tools is the Scor-It. It makes scoring so simple and produces a professional crease for any project you are doing. Mine was a Christmas gift from my Mom which she purchased at Archivers, but I know that Ellen Hutson's Web Store carries them. I've purchased many items through Ellen and she is an absolute delight to do business with.

I enjoy your blog and find it a wonderful inspiration. Thanks so much for the great posts!

Lauren Pittman said...

wow!! Congrats on the hits! I am loving this blog candy!!
Well, my favorite stamps are currently stamping bellas. I wish I could own every single one of them!! They adorable and fun to color and paper-piece together. I guess its because they remind me of paper dolls, which I loved when I was a kid!!
Thanks for this chance at some awesome prizes and keep up the great work!! =)

Andrea Hays said...

I love punches....of all kinds. I love the tag punches and the circles. I also love the mat pack from SU. I use that ALL the time! Congrats on your 50K!

Darlene said...

Wow congratulations on 50000!! and just look at how many comments are here already!!
As far a stamps - right now I'm really wanting to get the Stampendous Fresh Bloom.
I just purchased the Bind-it-All and can't wait to start creating with it.
Love the blog candy.

Flossie's Follies said...

Connie Conlon said...

I am loving finding fun new blogs, and yours is one of them. I love punches. I am always on the lookout for new ones. I have to start getting picky though because storage is becoming a problem. The ones I have to have however are the scallop ones so since i don't have them all, your "candy" is awesome. Connie

barb said...

Can I say.....Mulitcolored Gold Leaf??? this my favorite item right now and I love using it with bold stamps and the grat Pallette Glue Pad. It's a wonderful technique and I'm addicted!

Awesome blog candy!1

thanks,
barb

Nancy said...

Wish list: Doodle This and Doodle That! Favorite tools: CB & the scallop punches.

Pattyjo said...

One of the things on my Wish list is some of the new scalloped punches coming out. I'm not sure if they are available yet, but I have seen pictures of the ones coming. Very pretty!

Gailanne said...

Love your blog, Alison, and your gorgeous cards. I have a birthday approaching (rapidly) and I would be able to bear it so much better if I were presented with a Cricut Expressions machine. I just sent an e-mail to my DH to that effect. But I'm not holding my breath.

kat said...

My favorite tool - crop-a-dyl... it will go through anything link butter! My current favorite stamp set is the doodle set from SU - I am amazed at how many ideas I have found fir it. Congrats on your 50k hits!

KayellWY said...

Thanks for letting me play. I love clear stamps and right now I have all the sets of flourishes and swirls by Rhonna Farrer on my wish list. I want 'em all. :)

Dawn (dawnsing) said...

Just got the Autumn Leaves Nature Stamps set....LOVE it! Love the birds especially! Very fun!! Thanks so much!!

Mary Campbell said...

Congrats on the hits to your blog. I check it first thing every morning. I love all you have to share. Love the blog candy, thanks for sharing. My next purchase will be the Marvy giga punches. I love them.

Joan Ervin said...

Congrats on reaching 50,000 hits!! I love your blog and read it daily!! I just bought a 1" circle Marvy punch. Now I don't have to trim my 1 1/4 inch circles which always ended up looking like eggs!! I also love designer paper....I have way too much but continue to buy more!! What's a girl going to do??

missylangford1215 said...

I am totally coveting, well maybe not coveting, but really really wanting a curvy ruler. I think it is by Bo Bunny. I know it is pink and comes in a circle. It stretches out and you twist and turn it however you want to cut wavy lines. I so need this tool, I mean I really need this tool.

Anonymous said...

I don't have them but they are on my wishlist. Living on an island in Alaska we don't have the scrapbooking stores that carry those circle punches that are scalloped. I have seen some really awesome cards and layouts using those. Thanks for all the wonderful ideas you give us on your site. Keep up the great work! You are an inspiration!

kamstamper said...

I love making mini books, so I really want the Bind-it-all machine. Of the things that I have, I absolutely love my Wizard and my punches. Can't live without either of them!

diane mcvey said...

Wow, that's some great candy!! I just got 32 Copic markers, and they are GREAT! I got mine from Carpe Diem, and they were on special for half price. Otherwise, they are quite expensive...but they colors are wonderful, and they are so fun to use! Thanks for the great blog that you have, and for all the inspiration that you provide for us! :)

Susan said...

I just received a new order for Fun Flock from Eclectic Paperie...can't wait to use it...forget where I saw it ...on someone's blog, of course! It has kind of an interesting, fluffy effect...saw it used on SU's Bundle of Joy giraffe.

Starr Mercer said...

Mine's simple...SU's Big Blooms, love that set and can't live without it! Congrats on the hits...keep an eye on my site for a special challenge for blog candy!

Becky said...

Blog candy! Woohoo! My most recent acquisitions are backgrounds from CHF. I'm probably slow to get on the bandwagon, but I am SO impressed with how deeply etched these stamps are. They print beautifully. And my favorite, much to my surprise, is the Polka Dot background. I love to use it with pearlescent Brilliance ink - such a nice bit of shimmer on a background.

Beverly A said...

I love my Cuttlebug; I hardly make a card without using it. I never thought I would be interested in die cuts but ooohhh... those embossing folders are my favorites! I use the die cuts too.
Thanks for offering this wonderful blog candy and for constantly updating your blog!

Andrea M said...

50k already!!! CONGRATS, you've got a great blog and some sweet candy to offer up.
I love my bellas and basic grey paper. Definitely lusting for sets from papertrey, and Gina K, as well as the scallop punches. with the cnd $ on the rise, i may have to pursue some retail therapy.

Daniela said...

Wow, congrats!!! Love the blog candy. I am in love with these little bird stamps from Hero Arts: http://stampdesires.com/proddetail.php?prod=LP032&cat=67
I don't have them yet, but I want them.

Anonymous said...

Blog candy...YUMMMY! I'm *really* wanting the Cuttlebug & embossing folders...I've done everything BUT buy one...embossed cards at Mikes, dry embossing my own...LSS will let me play for $5 an hr!! but still havent succumbed... wonder how long I can hold out...birthdays not till Dec;(

Karen S said...

here's what I like to do (much to my pocketbook's dismay) - go online at odd hours of the night and check Stampin' Up auctions on ebay for stuff that's selling super cheap! Just search "stampin up" and "lot" or sometimes I just go to the craft section and put "Lot". I do a "auctions ending soonest" hit and then I can get things dirt cheap (well, not EVERY time, but lots of times). I get big lots of brads, ribbon, stamps, etc. It's kind of fun.

April Hall said...

Looks great, Congrats! I think one of my most favorite must haves for me is the SU cardstock. I have been buying from SU for over a year and have only recently used and purchased their CS, and I TOTALLY LOVE IT!

Congrats on your 50000 and to celebrate with your readers all the fun sweet candy. You are just to kind. I would have to say one thing that is on my wishlist is the popular giga mauvry punches

Mistylynn said...

So I think one of the coolest things out there are SU watercolor wonder crayons. I love the way they fill in an image or lettering.
My next pick would be Creative Memories circle cutter because it's so easy to use and just perfect! Check out this sb lo I used them on.

Amazing....50,000....Congrats! I have more stuff than I can ever use in a lifetime, but am always looking for something new. I've had my eye out for the Sakura pens also, don't have any....YET! Just pre-ordered the rectangular scallop punch today! Thanks for the chance at the great Blog Candy!

I just found your blog. You have a great site. I want, or I think I must have a wishblade.

My favorite thing right now is Crystal Effects. I am having so much fun with it.

Corinna said...

Congrats on 50,000, my friend!

Hrm... most essential? I will be boring and say the versamark pad. ;)

elaine garrity said...

WOW - 50,000 hits! How cool is that? Being the compulsive shopper that I am when it comes to stamping supplies, I now own four types of eyelet setters. My absolute favorite is the CROP-O-DILE. I have hundreds of eyelets that I just have not been inclined to use because of the effort it took. An then - I bought the CROP-O-DILE. What an easy job eyelet setting is now. This handy tool punches the hole, has a measuring guide so you can punch evenly spaced holes for snaps or eyelets and the setting part is so easy! Line the crimping part up and squeeze - takes hardly any effort. Now I'm ready to get rid of my traditional hammer, punch and setter, my Fiskars setters that are spring loaded and my newly purchased, never used, Silent Setter. And I'll be using more eyelets now - who knows - I may run out and have to buy some more!!!! Keep posting - I enjoy your blog!! elaine

Shannon said...

My favorite new tool remains my cuttlebug which I got in January but its still my new fav.

Anonymous said...

Great blog, your cards are wonderful and great inspiration! I can't get enough DP, I buy it, look at it, rarely cut it and then go buy more to not use! love the new Tinkering Ink Noir Black line and I'll like to try Fun Flock. Really, wouldn't we just love to have it all! Fab blog candy!

WOW! I love your blog and am not suprised with your number of hits. You are a wonderful artist and I love seeing your projects.

I adore stickles -glitter on anything, any colour, wow!! Anywhere - it sticks to amazing things!
Also my lastest greatest find was in my cupboard for many years. My pasta maker finally has a use - I am using it with all the cuttlebug folders... and die cuts and it works wonderfully!

Congrats on 50,000! Although I am not new to stamping and crafting, I am a new demonstrator with SU! So of course everything looks fabulous to me! Only DH is not happy about giving up yet another room in the house to his wonderful wife....I just keep telling him that his three car garage is like three rooms in the house! Your blog is wonderful, I have become very blog addicted!

theresa said...

I just found your blog by chance and I love your cards. I think the blog candy idea is fun.

GeorgyAnne said...

Hi Alli!
I gained access to your blog through my friend Corinna's blog, and admire your craftiness, definitely inspirational. I have only started stamping in the past year, but I am addicted to my versamark, embossing powder and my heat tool. I consider them one tool! Almost everything I create has an embossed background, nobody believes that I made it!
Keep up your fantastic work,we're all out here waiting to see your next move! (That's a scary thought isn't it?)
GeorgyAnne

Amy Grabia said...

I love the embossing machines, the big shot, the cuttlebug! They are amazing. I'm bing into textures, so it's great for me!
Something fun I just won, but haven't had a chance to play with yet is the Scor-Pal, I've seen a lot of cool tutorials done using it, so I'm excited to play with it soon!

cjknick said...

What great milestones you have hit recently! Congrats to you! I love reading your blog and checking out your new creations. Love such talent!

I have so many loves and wants. I guess my most recent obsessions are Bella Stamps and acrylic stamps. I'm a SU! gal but love being able to see where my placement is with the acrylic. I don't always get a good image tho :( Practice, practice, practice!

Here's to your next milestones :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the stampin' pastels. I know that lots of people have moved on to new toys, but I love using them with versamark, embossing, blender pens, the uses seem to go on and on, and you get all the colours at once. I think it's great.

Anonymous said...

I love the Papertrey stamp sets....don't own any yet but I'm hoping to someday.
Today I just purchased two of the cutest little stamps by Stampendous.....Changito Safari and Changito Swing. Can't wait to use them!

Congrats and thank you!!

Yippee blog candy! Right now my thing is SU craft ink pads. I used to think they weren't necessary but oh, was I wrong! The colour is just so vibrant that I'm trying to collect every colour!

I've been having a blast with the new Amuse stamps. They make quick and darling cards, and I'm often in need of a card at the last minute.

My favorite tool at the moment is the clear glitter pen. It makes adding a bit of sparkle to a project so easy without any mess.
Love your blog.

Amber said...

Congrats on 50,000+. What an accomplishment.

I am searching high and low for some of the new Hero Arts Clear Stamps. I bought some of the Doodlebug Birthday ones I had been searching for so now on to the HA ones.

Stamp4hobby said...

I really love Close To My Heart acrylic stamp sets. I am one of those stampers that had to see where my image is going or I mess it up every time. ;)
Right now my favorite stamp set is Playful Flourishes. I love that this set has little words that bend around the curves of any flourish you like. Cute, cute, cute!
You can see it on-

Robin Stewart said...

A very SIMPLE tool, my stapler. It is the best and it is amazing how creative you can be with it. Colours frames, texture and of course attaching stuff. I would also LOVE to get a long armed one. You can also colour plain silver staples with the new multi-pack of jiffy markers or with stayz on and the colours are endless.

Congrats on the 50000. I remember your 1st post

Congrats on your big hit. Yummy blog candy. Love your creations and thanks for sharing. I would like to have all the scallop punches that is all the rage right now. I don't own any of them.

Congrats, Love your blog!! My new favorite tool in the Big Shot, I chose that one because I love the look of embossed papers, and all the brands of embossing dies work in it! I am so excited about using it in my crafting future!
