Nestabilities are in Da House!!!



Oh yeah, baby!!!


I've been curious about the Nestabilities Die Cuts for quite some time. I remember the HUGE hype when Papertrey first stocked them and how everybody said they are a *must have item.*


My budget doesn't allow for me to hop on every bandwagon that comes along, so I decided to wait and see if they were as great as the hype surrounding them. I checked the gallery and watched the forums for reviews. I was impressed.


And then an opportunity came up last week on the BST Forum at Splitcoast for me to buy the Circles set (scalloped and reg). My Birthday is tomorrow, so I decided to buy myself what I really wanted and I grabbed 'em!! Thanks, meerkat3!


They arrived on Saturday and I looked up the Cuttlebug/Nestabilities Sandwich "Recipes" so I could play. Even with the short 20 minutes I had to mess around with them, I can tell you that I LOVE them! A lot of gals mentioned that it's a lot more time consuming than just grabbing a punch, but I found it to be a *really* quick process. AND the Nesties can emboss, too!!! AND they're a ton cheaper than the punches!!!


Needless to say, I have a new love! I'll definitely be getting all the different shapes/designs over time. This is JUST what I needed--something else to be addicted to!#*!#*


PS--When they arrived on Saturday in the mail, I got them out and showed them off to DH with all the glee of a kid at Christmas. He said, "Well, honey--Happy Birthday! I'm glad you got what you wanted, but I really don't understand what you're so excited about. They're just a bunch of metal circles..." Poor man. They just *don't* understand, do they!?!

Oh my goodness - you lucky thing you!! I have been wanting the nestabilities! Do you use them with a cuttlebug? I have a cuttlebug and have been really considering getting these. And I totally get the hubby thing! They just don't get it! Oh well- that's what our sisterhood is for LOL! :)

I love my Nestabilities, too. And I must disagree with you....my dad, brother & hubby are FASCINATED by the dies & cuttlebug. I could see the wheels in my brother's head turning, thinking "Hmmmm, what could I use this for?" LOL!

Jen said...

ohhhh!! i've been debating on getting them, but I'm afraid that I won't use them enough to justify the cost! Thanks for sharing! :)
