First yeah man
I don't like it when things get utterly ridiculous like that last thread. It just means more crap to skim through to get the the manu smack - which I enjoy. I don't get WHY people have anonymous arguments on the internet! It's the definition of pointless!I also don't get why someone would get pleasure from posting intentionally nasty / untrue comments about someone they only know through a blog either. It says so much about you and nothing about them.Not hand slapping - just saying I don't get it!!Bring on the Bo Bunny smack - cos I wanted to apply for their DT and now - no way in a million years if that fugly stuff if the way they are heading!!
well, ally has always been a bitch. she always acts like she knows it all and it makes me sick.
post links to sheeples' blogs gushing over PTI stamp affaire? wanna see pics!
"I don't get WHY people have anonymous arguments on the internet! It's the definition of pointless!"There would be no smack board otherwise 3:59, Just sayin'... I agree with ya on the Bo Bunny thing. NO WAY will I be going out for that DT when they next do a call. All the CHA releases were fug!
Who else is tired of Caz's PVM posts?
Ally- Stuck up bitch who thinks she can get away with judging everyone. Better never start a "fluffy" post ever again honey, you'll get raked over the coals for it. (Or you should)Caz- Narcissistic bitch, but she was right to call out Ally on that thread. Wish more people would have done it. She does need to quit bashing eveyone over the head with her pregnancy news though. WE GET IT ALREADY!Lindsay- Straight-up bitch, who really needs some meds. Here's a tip, you can't go after someone else like that and pretend you still look good when it's over. Are you in the midst of a breakdown sweetums??
question - didn't lindsay used to cause a lot of "trouble" over at the 2peas boards? is SC just her new home?
Yep, aggiebonfire is definitely a pea.Ginnifer, check out Anilu Magliore on Pinterest, and Shimelle Lane.
Good Morning!I think it's pretty shitty to judge/call out someone in your community because *you* think they have too much of something. Jalous much? lolBesides, that what this place is for!
Caz sucks the life out of the board. Ally is a bully but at least she tries to start conversations and not just going off on how awesome her life is. If Caz's life was so awesome, why is she on that message board all day long? I don't know who Lindsay is. I had to search her posts. I only looked at three pages of her posts. I didn't see her causing any trouble other than giving Caz a hard time on that thread. I do like her idea of an ignore button.
Who care if she is a pea? Lots of people at Studio Calico are or were peas.
please, let's ignore SC for a while....... the cat fights over there just make all of us uptight!!and don't smack me for saying this LOL! :)and somehow not having enbrightened around is nice. I don't know why.
Methinks she's back to posting anon..
Is there any other place besides PTI and SC to smack?
well, i miss Diana and enjoy her input on the threads. I hope you come back soon!
i miss her too!
I'd take Ally over Caz any day. She often says what I'm thinking, albeit not very diplomatically, whereas Caz drives me insane. She jumps in a turns things into arguments when they don't need to. Ursula is well able to rationally make her point for herself.
where did enbrightened/diana go? i saw someone or someones posting that it looked like she and aeryn were posting too much, is that why she left or was there something else? i don't think she would leave though, she seemed pretty strong. hope you cunts didn't drive her away.
I'm not gone. ;)Back to anonymous, though.
i'd like to know what dope started the rumor that hero arts was buying out pti.is there a shred of evidence on this?
someone said that jen mcg was helping set up at stamp-a-faire and somehow that's evidence??it's fun to speculate, but that isn't enough evidence for me to believe it.but if they can't get their customer service issues and ink issues figured out, maybe someone needs to buy PTI.
info on PTI inks:Hi friends! Here's the ink skinny as Nichole described it to Amy Dann and I:Two formulations - dye and pigment. The goal is to create the pigment to be compatible with Copics and not bleed. The pigment formulation is still in the development phases and will be a longer wait because it will be something brand new to the market. Dye inks will be released first... Spring moss, aqua mist, and pure poppy will be the first colors made available. Aqua mist was beautiful and stamped very well - it will definitely be in my cart when they release. I personally love dye inks and an thrilled they are almost ready. I think that the pigment inks will also be great when they are able to settle all the details and begin production. Hooray!
more:Also, any cubes you noticed us using were not new formulations. I don't know whether they will also offer cubes or not. The pad is medium sized and the tapered end of the teardrop shape really allows you a lot of versatility for smaller images, partial images, and rock & roll technique.
one final tidbit from the board:The new ink stamped beautifully. Nichole told Denise and me that the dye inks will be released first. It won't be for quite a while until the other formulation is released. Nichole said it wasn't like anything else on the market right now...so I'm not certain that it will be "pigment" ink. After the other ink is released, there will be a plastic part that will allow the two pads to connect together, if you so choose. So you can have the two formulations stored together. The containers will stack, too. I'm not sure if they will offer the small cubes or not. Nichole mentioned the reason she designed the shape of the pad the way she did was to accommodate different stamping techniques, as Denise mentioned previously. It should be very esy to accomplish the detailed stamping that one may prefer a small cube for.
diana, we will miss your posts!
thanks 8:40 :)really, though, you will just miss knowing that it's me posting. my posts will still be here. i DID say during the whole MRA/ATQ thing that i'd probably go back to anonymous after a while.
8:48 is NOT diana. I am. I'm lurking for now. you'll know I'm back when i sign in as diana
no, 8:57, i am diana.
No guys, I am Diana. Thanks tho.
i don't think she would leave though, she seemed pretty strong. hope you cunts didn't drive her away. July 24, 2011 8:05 AM proof positive that no one likes to be smacked.food for thought
so just between us anon smackers, who here has charged their scrapbook/crafty goodies BECAUSE you couldn't afford to pay cash. I don't mean you paid for it with a credit card because you were buying online or whatever, and paid it off when the bill came. I mean because you wanted it!!
Is there any other place besides PTI and SC to smack? July 24, 2011 7:25 AM ^^^^Youtube scrapbook video makers? arlene my butterflykisses12, tatteredaddiction, to name a few. just but their name in the search bar and you'll find them on YTUbe.
I don't have any credit cards - so I've never purchased scrap supplies that I didn't actually have the cash for.

July 24, 2011 8:38 AM ---denise on the pti forum is another wench. first she's having troubles in her marriage. then she's married to the greatest man ever. then she's depressed and can't craft. and then she's applying to be on every low-class dt known to man. and she thinks she's dawn mcvey with calling everyone her friend and talking about oh my lordy bees. shut up, denise. we hate you. love, granola girl. lol
9:56 - No, I doubt anyone likes to be smacked. However, that isn't why I went back to "anonymous." I DID say I'd probably eventually go back to anonymous, and I thought I'd be respectful to the person who said it was less enjoyable when I post under my real name. But since it doesn't matter what I do, I'm going to post under my real ID.That being said, I wasn't around much yesterday because hubby and I are working on rearranging the apartment (continues to today). We're also taking care of all our appointments/errands before gearing up to go back to school in a few weeks. A lot to get done before then.So, there you go. Smack on!
Anonymous said... I don't have any credit cards - so I've never purchased scrap supplies that I didn't actually have the cash for. July 24, 2011 10:37 AM ---so you don't order online?
Who else is tired of Margie posting pic's sideways and shots of her feet??? Enough already.
(Oh and in the mean time, I changed my blogger ID from enbrightened to my real name... it took me a second (or several days) to remember how to that.)
10:45 - I don't have credit cards either, but online is the only place I shop for supplies... with my debit card or paypal.
i thought you'd be back diana, and/or there was a reason for your absence and not because these cunts ran you off.
I'll be honest I have used my credit card. for all of $20. what can I say I had to have it. and it was probably about 2002 when I did that.
Glad to see you are still here D!
when it was just the hubby and me, sometimes i'd get "creative" with bills (rearrange due dates, split payments, that kind of thing) to make fun and/or crafty purchases. since the baby, nope. i either can afford it or i don't buy it. mostly because i love cute baby/toddler clothes and giving her things.
thanks 10:57and 10:49, i think. ;) LOL

i never buy anything if I don't have the cash to pay off the credit card that day.if you are in a situation where your bills are piling up...i hope you get some help. (said in a nice way).
To each her/his own...
Sir Scrapalot is sexy. Just sayin.
sir scrapalot? link please! lol
wish PTI well on its new inks but NO WAY am I buying them. I'd rather eat dirt. Since i suspect all three of those owners read this, I'll tell you why.YOU RIPPED US OFF. you sold a bad product and you knew it was bad and kept selling it and then you made it next to impossible to exchange. We were supposed to spend OUR money to return it and hope to get what back? No thanks. twice.So no thanks. Play all coy month after month promising new ink so dopey customer will stick with your paper. NO THANKS. stampers! pull of the blinders and quit buying everything these folks sell.
I've only got the white and black PTI inks, so I never experienced bad ink problems. I've heard so many terrible things about it, so I steered clear. I think you make a fantastic point, 11:58. Why should anyone buy the new inks if the old ones were so bad? And they were bad for months without the PTI owners really making right. Even this wouldn't have been a perfect solution, with that much widespread complaints, they should have just replaced the inks without making people send the faulty ones back. I've seen companies do that before.
April posted regarding that thread. She deleted it... Interesting. Can't post the link.. Phnoe is acting up.
I'm glad April deleted it.
Sirscrapalot.com ? all I see is a frog. and I hate frogs.
anyone know what the legal issue is with getting smash into aussie? some stores are now saying it won't be here for awhile because of some legal bswhat gives?
I don't do the bills, DH does, so back when we were tight with money I'd ask him before purchasing anything. I have to buy online here (there's nothing really around) and so everything goes on the credit card. Now I don't have to ask anymore, but if he says "try to hold back the spending for a bit" then I do. I consider the whole "need vs. want" thing. But all of my shopping is down with his knowledge so if he says we have the money for it, then we do. We're out of debt (except car/house) so all he has to do is make sure that the card gets paid off at the end of the month.
I buy PTI stamps and dies (I love them). I will not be buying their inks, ever. Thankfully I never bought the original ones because I had so many SU ink colors, I just didn't "need" the PTI ones. Then I heard people were having trouble with them, so even though there were a few colors I would have liked to have bought, I didn't.I've never personally been screwed over by PTI, so I keep buying. Do I hate how long their shipping takes? Yes. But I love the stamps and dies so I just take the good with the bad.That said, if I ever have an issue with them, I'm done.
April would delete that thread. Ursula shells out a ton of $$$ there and she does not want to lose that cash cow every month. We all know that the majority of the ladies that craft are Hoarders. Have any of you watched the show?
I've never bought scrap stuff when I couldn't afford it. We do put everything on one credit card because we get the airline miles and use those to fly home every year. But we pay it off every single month and never pay interest because of that.The nice thing about putting everything on the card is it keeps a running tally of what you've spent. So it's super easy to go back and see what I've spent, including on scrap stuff. I'm on several DTs, so I really don't buy that much stuff these days anyway. But when I do place online orders, they tend to be pretty big ones (big for me is $100) or bigger adhesive stock-ups when it's on sale for 50% off. That kind of thing.
Crap! I skipped reading the smack blog yesterday and missed out on the SC thread where Ally called out Ursula. I knew cutting back my internet usage was a bad idea ;)
12:59, sorry you missed it. It was entertaining for sure. Made me actually want to stick up for Caz and that will probably NEVER happen again. LOL!
12:57 - that's exactly what we do. Everything goes on the Disney card and it pays for at least one Premium Annual Pass every year. And I too like that I can go back and see exactly where I've spent the money. Which is how I know exactly what I've spent on scrap stuff this year. $4,000... it's TOTALLY time to stop. ((hides))
well I'm in debt up to my eyeballs. I don't make good money, my husband makes ok $. We both work our asses off, and drive very old paid for cars. we don't have cable, either btw. so there. does that make anyone who says they have no debt other their house better than another person? if so they can kiss my ass.
^^^ No one has even come close to saying that - chill out already.
1:16 -- depends on why you don't have enough money. if you partied instead of getting an education or wasted money on junk, yeah, I am better than you.if you've played by the rules and got screwed, no I am not better than you.
I'm 1:16 , and I wasn't saying necessarily that anyone was saying they were better. But I def detect a condescending tone sometimes when this subject comes up. I def didn't party instead of getting ad education. I worked! hard! I couldn't afford school, and the few classes I took, well I just wasn't smart enough. And I'm suffering because of I'm not 'book' smart.
I'm sorry you're in that situation, 1:16. I'm not trying to be condescending at all.
I sometimes think "condescending tones" are put into people's words when something touches you a little closer to home, KWIM? I didn't read anything condescending regarding the credit card issue here at all. Step back a sec and see if you're reading into it because it's a situation you're personally dealing with.Not being snarky at all, just putting another idea out there as it's something I have dealt with on this board before personally so I can relate.
well if it makes anyone feel better, I'm seriously racked with guilt, to the point I want to jump off the roof. there's no end in site. I can't work enough hours in the day. sorry to bring this all on this board. carry on the smacking.
I don't have a whole lot of money to spend on stuff but I find you don't have to if your careful. I do alot of minis and so my system is to by the mini blank, papers, embellishments and stretch out the project until next weeks pay. It means I always have a project to do and a new one to look forward to each week. really tight weeks I can only get enough for a l/o or sone cards. When I do get a bit of extra I buy a collection I really love. I also buy one copic a week -sounds pathetic I know but they do add up eventually. I do envy scrappers who can splash out on heaps of stuff but at the end of the day - and certainly at the end of the year I have plenty. After all scrap addiction isn't quite as pricey as a shoe addiction!
Does Jamie Sorenson at 2P's still pull posts that she thinks need to be pulled?
2:19 , this is mrs jump off the roof again! lol. But ty for reminding me of something I wanted to say. If there's an upside to this, it's forcing me to pull out my stash and create, rather than either just not do anything because I don't have the right color button, or go out and shop which I can't do anyway. lol.
2:28 I think your situation is more common than you think... I totally feel your pain. Have you tried selling stuff before you buy new stuff? Also, maybe if you have a crafty neighbor, you could pull your resources together and share supplies? If you submit to magazines, you might think you need the latest and greatest, but you don't. They'll accept an awesome card with older product before they accept an okay card with new stuff (I would think so, at least)! Good luck to you!
12:52pmI strongly disagree with you calling crafter hoarders in relation to the people on the show.The people on the show have serious mental conditions that is causing their hoarding.I am a crafter with a room FULL of stuff. It is organized and is not taking up every inch of my house. Will I use all of it in my lifetime, only God knows. Oh and to the person with the credit card debit issue. There are different reasons for people to have debt in their life.However, the fact that the only debt I have due to my house is a CHOICE I made in life and am very proud of that.That said, I also recognize that if I were to get seriously ill or have a major life event in my life, that would all change.
I agree w/ the hoarders on the show having, sadly, some issues and need help. it's actually sort of sad.
12.38 - I got my Smash stuff from SC. (I'm a subber though - not sure what the deal is if that's all you want) It will be restocked before Reveal (28th).Haven't heard of the legal issues. I saw Blue Bazaar was selling it online the other day.Still, SC will be your best value.
Hope you can get through this, 1:48....things are really tough for a lot of people out there. You'll get no smack from me or most of the ladies here, only some compassion and kind thoughts.
1:28 - I know this is not "all about me" but your comments struck a nerve. I partied after graduating from high school. I partied hard (well, as hard as one can party without becoming an alcoholic/addict). And I worked, too. Tried going to college in my early 20s and I didn't feel the motivation or have the focus for it. I took a different path than you, as I am in school now, involved in student government and volunteer work, in the honor society, and making a 3.9 GPA. You got a college degree right away? Honestly, good for you. You are probably better paid than I have ever been up to this point. But really, being a better paid person doesn't make you a better person (or a worse one either). I don't know what your rules are, but it must be nice to live in such a perfect and efficient world. People run into all kinds of circumstances in their lives and respond to those circumstances in a myriad ways. Some of those people arrive at those circumstances because of misinformed choices that they've made, but who starts out thinking that they want to get themselves into bad situations? Most people do not. You may not have the means (or desire) to help those people, but that does not mean that they are less than you and not deserving of compassion. Hopefully, you would never have to experience hardship, let alone a hardship that arises from a decision you thought was good for you at the time.
So glad someone else commented on Denise on the PTI forum. Oh I can't stand her either! She's all sweety peety smarty marmy. You know it's all a show. Ass kissing to make it up the ladder, get noticed, etc. That's awesome. Made my day that someone else doesn't care for her :)
1:48 - ditto what 2:47 said.
so just between us anon smackers, who here has charged their scrapbook/crafty goodies BECAUSE you couldn't afford to pay cash.___________________________________________I will admit I just charged something I should have paid cash for. It was a retired item and I felt like if I didn't snap it up I wouldn't find it again. That's one of my pet peeves about the sb industry (but probably smart marketing) so many things are limited edition or have a short shelf life that you feel like you need to get it before it's gone.The price was only $18 but I will admit that if I had to pay cash I wouldn't have been able to do it so that's why I used my credit card. Yes, I'm that broke. I have been scrapbooking for years so fortunately I have a nice stash so in the last 3 years since my income has gone down I rarely need to buy anything..
2 years ago a bunch of scrapbook "celebs" who were in a hotel computer at CHA got on Guess's Scrap Smack site and were slamming posters left and right. So speaking of scrap police, you would be surprised who posts here.
Who wants to put money on the fact that MRA will be joining with SC before the next CHA show??
3:34, I actually wouldn't be surprised. My guess is that these 'celebs' were Ali Edwards, Donna Downer and whomever the third person was in the famous "live, love, create" scandal. They're all more fake than a box of dentures.
DD is a phony fake, but not so AE.
Live love create scandal? do tell!! please!
3:52, I kind of doubt it. April is to big of an ego for that partnership. Does anyone remember that long lost, never again spoken of, partner Scarlet?
Yeah, I kind of doubt MRA goes to SC, too. Her style is too flowery for SC.
1:16, I'm really sorry if you thought anyone was saying something was wrong with being in debt. I think everyone goes through that type of situation at some point, either from college loans, bad houses, or getting screwed (like us). We *just* got things back on track after 8 years, which is why I've gone a little nuts with the spending lately. I don't think anyone can say they're completely perfect with money and have made EVERY right decision, because even if you do, bad things happen to good people. Buck up though, it does take time, but things can get better.
Thanks Aeryn! i'm 1:16, btw. And I was being sensitive. I knew I was in a anonymous safe environment, and just lashed out. I didn't really think anyone was being snotty here about that. and congrats for getting back on track!
hey I'm 1:16 and I don't think you are understanding what I meant, or maybe we just disagree.If someone is working, trying to get by and life smacks her in the head then I have a big heart for someone like that. Illness, layoffs, bad luck -- it is tough out there for a lot of people. What i meant was that I know a few folks who have skated by in life -- partied in college and flunked out or worked at jobs well below what they could have done money wise. Example -- my sister. I took out student loans, went to college, paid back the loans and worked my entire life, including through 3 kids and marriage.My sister partied. She flunked out of college, went from job to job until she got married. 2 years later she quit working when she wasn't even pregnant. Her husband works his tail off while she scrapbooks at home while the kids are in school and they are UP to their eye balls in debt. I don't have sympathy for HER. And no she should not be charging a $100 order on PTI yesterday to get a "free" 15 set. Scrapbooking is a hobby. it isn't food and shelter. If you don't have enough $$ for it, for whatever reason then don't make life worse by adding debt to your situation.if this sounds preachy, smack me. I don't care. Someone ELSE raised the issue and it hit close to home and I'm not apologizing.
i don't see margie going with sc. i'm probably reading too much in to the one picture of her at cha being with the glitz people but their style is right up her alley. i wonder though if the way she seems to have bounced around this last little bit might have people turned off. they may like her style and her following and all that, and even taking in to account the unauthentique thing was a major ass-fucking by those adulterating shitbags, she just might seem like too big of a risk to take on. like they might not be sure how her name is going to be received out there. especially this soon. just thinking out loud here.
sorry, I was 1:28, not 1:16
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qcFXHW0A4M do we like her? she's cute.
^^^are you 1:16 or 1:28?and are you talking to me?because I thought 1:16 was the person who later said she wanted to jump off a roof. i was talking to the person who posted this, at 1:28 PM:******************************************* 1:16 -- depends on why you don't have enough money. if you partied instead of getting an education or wasted money on junk, yeah, I am better than you. if you've played by the rules and got screwed, no I am not better than you. July 24, 2011 1:28 PM ********************************************
What was so snotty about the KI staff? I didn't notice that when I was in their booth.
1:28/4:29 - so what you're saying is that you're better than your sister?? because you didn't say that in the OP. it looked to me like what you were saying is that if a person didn't play by the same rules as you, partied and did things differently, and then ended up in a tough financial situation, that you are better than them. if i misinterpreted your "yeah, I am better than you" statement, then I'm sorry. But say what you mean (which I guess you did at 4:29).
Anonymous said... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qcFXHW0A4M do we like her? she's cute. ---i don't think i have heard anyone say anything bad about jennifer mcguire. i'm not crazy about the new dies. i don't have a problem diecutting and then stamping. i guess some people do. jennifer and kp are bffs and always posting that they love each other on twitter and blogs. it's kinda nauseating.
(after reading your 1:28 post, i thought you were being mean. and after reading your 4:29 post, i see that you have had experiences with a person who apparently takes advantage of her loved ones. so we probably agree and there was just a crossing of wires.)
diana, yup i am better than my sister.
4:52 that's why I can't take twitter anymore. Too many ass kissing scrap/stamp/card celebs!
well then, LOL... if i had a sister, i'd be better than her too.
jennifer macguire, isnt she the one that was a nanny and ended up marrying the dad after he divorced his wife? it was quite scandalous. did i get the right girl?
OMG 5:07!!! I have to know more!!!
4:48, probably nothing this time because the snotty bitch, Shannon Tidwell, didn't go to the show. So you got a lucky break not having to deal with her at KI!
No, I don't think that's Jennifer McGuire. She met her DH working at Proctor & Gamble. He was divorced with kids already when they met.
^^^Um no, I remember hearing about that story too that she was the babysitter and ended up with him.
^^I heard the JMG scandal as well, but I don't believe it. She's very kind and very generous. Nothing smackable about her in my book!
WTF. My PTI True Black ink was inside my art case with an eraser sitting on top of it (lid on). It seems like somehow the lid (of the ink pad) and the eraser somehow "melted" together. They were fused and when I peeled the eraser off, there was a melty square impression in the lid. (There was no glue in the case and nothing else touching the eraser or ink pad) Has anyone heard of such a thing?
The Nanny thing is a rumor. IT IS ***NOT*** TRUE.
Jennifer was an engineer before she became a full time crafter.
Ken was already separated when Jennifer offered to babysit for him so that he could get out. They worked together.She fell in love with his girls and then they started dating. He looks like he's quite a bit older than her. So no, she wasn't the nanny and didn't cause his divorce but she did babysit for him.I remember when Jennifer used to give away free fonts that she designed on the 2Peas message board.That was years ago.
Studio Calico is going downhill. First, the kits are getting smaller and more expensive. Second, the message board is full of crazy women.
RE: SC... I jumped that ship a while ago.
Diana..it's a sign to stay the hell away from PTI inks!!!!
i second that. the whole pti ink debacle has soured me on their inks forever and ever amen. the inks were substandard. they knew it and so did everyone else. they made you pay to return them. they are a shady operation. nichole heady is a cunt and jennifer ellefson is her little pit bull hitman. customer service is not on their list of things they are good at or know anything about. do not not not spend your money on the new inks no matter who says they are good. just don't do it.
Does anyone else think THo (tim holtz) and his Umbrella Man stamp and die scream pedophile? not that I think he is, it's just creepy to me.
shame on mft for closing their cha supershow booth early. i was going to buy something and everything was already packed up at 4:30!
Your comment bothers me 6:48.
who is MFT?
My Favorite Things.
I hate when Caz posts non scrapbook related posts on the Studio Chat board. If she wants to talk about her new job or new baby, then she should post on the other board. No, I am not jealous of her super awesome life! I have my own.
Who is MFT at the super show?
what does 6:48 comment bother you? she/he specifically said she/ he wasn't saying he was one. I agree, that umbrella man is creepy.
Who is mft?
is the new craft channel a tv show? or is it online?
Maybe someone should tell Caz that, 6:54. I volunteer lindsey or ally. Lol ;)
I can think of a couple that would be awesome at telling Caz. Should we start a list?
I went and looked at Caz's blog. Who jokes about giving toddlers tequila?
was she joking?
Yes! Start a list!
whats spaz caz blog? i refuse to go to sc to find it.
Ok so Lindsey (aggie whatever her username is)ScrapAllyMar, who posts over here under her real name and rocks!
How does TH's umbrella man = pedophilia in ANYONE'S head? Or maybe it's that gay = pedophile in your tiny little brain?I'm not really a Tim Holtz fan, but c'mon - that's a REALLY fucked up thing to say about ANYONE.
I think we can safely put all the dt on the no-spaz list.
You could be a friend to Caz and tell her why no one but Ursula and her fellow New Zealanders like her, but she isn't going to get it. She is the epitome of a dumb blonde. I wonder how many people have stopped posting on the message board since she came along?
I dont get the pedophile stamp either. Huh? Obviously I don't have as perverted of a mind as you do, 6:48
Ok, only go to SC when prompted by you all over here... so does Caz really post that many topics that almost no one posts a response to? Just trying to get a feel for what we have going on here.
maybe Caleb could post a comment on her blog??
Oh. my. gah! I know you all are losers but I *SAID* I wasn't saying I thought he was one. I don't even think he's gay. 7:15- that's a REALLY fucked up thing to say about ANYONE. ^^^^ huh? say what ? that I think that stamp/die looks like that?? oohhhhh kayyyy. did I hit a nerve in some way. are you a THo sheeple?
Caz posts multiple threads, and some of them on the wrong board. That is great that she has a new job, made a DT and is expecting. Could she just have updated the one thread about her amazing week? Lately, she and Ursula start about 25% of the threads if not more. It is like it has turned into the Caz and Ursula show.
If it's the one I'm thinking of, isn't the umbrella man stamp supposed to be a Charlie Chaplin image?
Lol, 7:30. And yes, I'm laughing AT you.
13 threads started by Ursula and Caz on the first 5 pages. Excessive much?
7:30 Yes I'm sticking my middle finger up AT you.
Caz thanked April for deleting the thread. It was partially her fault it went batshit.
I just got the Umbrella Man embossing folder, but to me, for some reason, reminds me of a British guy. Maybe cos it's rainy in London, maybe because I'm BBC Sherlock obsessed (think Mycroft Holmes), I don't know, but I didn't get the paedophilia vibe at all.
Caz is clueless. She probably thinks that she was in the right since April deleted it. She should be thanking April because she couldn't carry on a conversation without contradicting her posts.
I follow Ronda Palazzari on Pinterest for scrap inspiration. I really like her style. Thanks to this place and Pinterest, my house is a fricken mess! lol
I dont go to the boards anymore because of them. Its like they own the board.
Every time I want to get on Pinterest, the servers are down or slow as molasses.
LMFAO @ 7:30....yup, you got me. You hit a nerve. I'm a pedophile Tim Holtz sheeple.Again, I'm not sure what it is in your frighteningly pathetic psyche that makes you equate a man with an umbrella with pedophilia. It says far more about you than Tim Holtz.My first impression of you from that post is that you're one of those idiots who thinks they're way funnier than anyone else does. (Tim Holtz die = pedophile! Har har har!!!) Your subsequent posts have kinda cemented that impression.
Not to bring it up, if it's still sensitive, but I think the issue also has to do with living above your means. My SIL is an example of this. They're not really in a position to be buying anything as they're very behind on payments of things, and she's still "looking for a job", but she continues to go out and buy new things. Things she can't even use. Like a backyard pool because it was on sale. Okay, but they were living with my in-laws at the time and they wouldn't allow her to even set the pool up. She got angry at them. Anyway, what I'm saying is it's a bit difficult not to "look down" on people who know they are in trouble and yet continue to spend wildly. Not that I'm pointing fingers at anyone but my SIL. It sucks at times, not to get new things because you're going through a rough financial patch, but making it worse by living above your means for frivolous stuff is not smart IMHO.
SO TRUE, Aeyrn. I know a girl who went out and bought a $1,000 ring (and had to split it between three credit cards to pay for it) because she wanted it. Nevermind they were behind on their house payments. That's the kind of f-ed up stuff that gets people in deep shit!
I think the Tim Holtz die is inspired by Magrittehttp://bohemianconnection.wordpress.com/2011/06/26/magritte-at-tate-liverpool/ - I dont know that for sure. It also has the chaplinesque quality to it. certainly not paedophilia
See, that's just nuts!When we were going through our hardest times it was really depressing, and new "prezzies" make me happy no matter what, but I didn't just go out and spend because I was sad. I made sure to sell something old of mine to a scrappy person so I could use the money to buy new. Spending money you don't have is a slippery slope, especially when it's only when the credit card bill comes that you address the issue.
Oh and for the lady that was on the roof - my pay came in today - paid off some of my bills, put food on the table and then spent my $25 on scrap supplies. it can be done. just take it all one paycheck at a time
and make a budget. For being a pain, a--y is on to something with the whole Dave Ramsey thing.
Budget - yes.Also, see if you can lower some bills by switching cell phone carriers, cable, etc. or cancel them altogether.
oh FFS, enough with the Dave Ramsey koolaid shit. Just another huckster getting rich on the lost sheeple looking for a new religion and a new messiah.
or sell blood. Ok. only joking about that. but maybe craigslist ?
Remember the secret Garden Girl board at Two Peas. Somebody was posting comments on Guess's Smack Scrap site. I still hold a grudge about that one, I am turned off when I see anything about those Garden Girls who partook in that. Also Kristina the owner of Two Peas made herself look like a real bitch, I would never give her a dime of my money and buy anything from Two Peas.
sc has a secret board as well.
Make that 14 threads on the first five pages.
You are all just figuring that out 10:25? All DT's have secret boards...
SC probably does. I am sure they chat somewhere about the pages that they are working on for the reveal, prices they love or hate, etc. I wouldn't doubt if they aren't talking smack about certain members too.
nope, 10:34 Ive know a long time. Just telling 10:18 so she can not shop there as well.
Since the money issue for crafting has been brought up I'd lik to share that I honestly started playing along with challenges and applying for DT's because things are pretty tight for us cash wise. I see some names get smacked here for trying to be DT hogs but do you every consider that maybe some of these girls are in the same position? I'm on a few design teams now and so thankful for the happy mail I get from them. Outside of the needed adhesive purchases I can't afford to purchase many of the items I wish I could create with. I refuse to carry credit cards after the Government bailed them all out and they refuse to help so many who are struggling so if I do I pay cash...I really feel blessed to have the opportunities that I do in this industry.
WTF? What did Kristina say/do? I can totally see her being a bitch. She turns my stomach. Really. That bitch gets $0 of my money anymore. She's a stuck up SNOT.
Nice 10:35. I stopped shopping there after meeting the owner and having her treat me like dirt. She's a terrible business woman, everyone knows the first rule of business is to treat your customers well cause for every bad experience that person will tell 10 people about that interaction. I've been singing it from the roof top! She's a biznotch!
SC definitely has a private DT only board!
I don't get the whole Dave Ramsay thing.(I'm not putting anyway down, we each have on issues) I'm just saying that all you have to do is spend less than you earn, or at least spend only what you earn. Do you really need to buy his books (or whatever it is that he sells) to know that?
is anyone excited for the reveal this week? are you buying? why or why not? the dt sneaks have done nothing to inspire me. thoughts?
*anyone* down, sorry.
Ha, I'm 10.45 - sorry, that's all I got!It was just the other day one of the DT mentioned it, & I've often seen references to it during a chat.
10:48 some need to see a plan & dr gives them that. I think some people are so overwhelmed that they dont know where to start. And lets face it, it IS possible that if you need DR than perhaps you havent been using common sense (though I do realize that not everyone falls into the category. Life happens sometimes. Other times people just spend money to spend money).
and you know, no, I am not really excited at all about the Reveal. Not sure if it's from reading all the bitching here, or if I really am falling out of love with SC :(
Those two jerks at Two Peas are unbelievable. I can't go into details, but they are the most unprofessional idiots out there in the SB business. Mr. & Mrs. Kristina Nicolai-White- you suck!
Why are all the guys in scrapping gay?
no fair - you can't go in to details? Just a little clue?
10:51, I think that is the case with me. I am so sick of the Caz/Ursula threads, stamp solution, the sales techniques to overhype and not enough kits/add-ons. To name a few. But the biggest thing for me is the lack of product in the kits these days. They are chintzy. And if you don't get at least one or two add-ons, you don't have much to work with.
Well I could, but choose not to. Trust me, they're complete assholes.
^^^re: Mr & Mrs Kristina Nicholai-White
I hate 2 Peas,MB is too bitchy for me, so I rarely visit there. It is amazing what you come up with when you google her name!
I googled her and am not finding much interesting. Clue?
My mom sent me this comment from a website called Fark that she frequents. It's full of bitchy commenters the likes of which 2Peas cannot rival. She thought it was funny, and so do I. It reminded me of the whole SC thing and how freakin' sensitive, getting into cat fights at the drop of a hat. Pocket Ninja: While it's true that anonymity does to some degree enable those who wish to spread mayhem and derail discussion topics online, i.e., "internet trolls," the real issue is that the vast majority of internet users are sackless girl bags of gutless fear who quiver and wail at the slightest sign of meanness and shriek "troll" in their most girly voice. Every typed slight to them is like a stranger rape; they live their lives in a constant state of vitcimhood.
Not meant to offend anyone here, I just thought it was funny. One of the reasons I love this place is we can speak more freely than most message boards.
That "catfight" wasn't at the drop of a hat. It was a long time coming.
Oh, I'm sure. But there have been many smaller ones, I guess leading to this big one (which I didn't get to read). And people on 2Peas can't even make innocuous comments without getting jumped on. Perhaps it's just too many women in one room sometimes.
PTI stampaffaire photos popping up everywhere. This is *Little Miss T* in this photo:http://share.shutterfly.com/share/received/detail.sfly?imageIndex=32&sid=0AZOWzZo3aNGTmY&fid=3024ad4cd6f81cb6
Dammit *smacks forehead* I read that whole SC thread and didn't even think to copy and paste it here. Should be my rule of thumb when something juicy happens - paste before it's pulled! Sorry smackers!
with ally there, you can be sure there will be many more threads like that. she is ms know it all anyway.
