    I Love The MISTI (23 June 2016)

    I have had my eye on this for a long time and am so glad I purchased it. Great quality! I really love how easy it is to use and that everything you need is included. I will probably order the original MISTI in the near future for larger projects but the mini works great for cardmaking!

    Great Inspiration for Beginners (23 June 2016)

    The book is great for beginners who are just starting out and need ideas. It's also good for anyone who has lost their inspiration and needs a jumping off point.



  • Great Adhesive Runner (31 January 2013)

    I have tried many different adhesive runners in the 11 years I've been scrapbooker. I like this one because it does not get gummed up and so far I have not had any problems with the tension. I do not like the stamp feature because I feel it really wastes the adhesive to use it. But all in all, it's a great adhesive.



  • Great For Home Decor and Gifts (03 March 2012)

    The icons are perfect for teacher appreciation gifts, layouts, and home decor.



  • Great For Card Making (03 March 2012)

    These titles are perfect for card making and for layouts.



  • Great for Kids or Zoo Themes (20 July 2011)

    I just purchased this design card and I'm really excited about using it. I love the cute animals and the font is so sweet. This is not only great for zoo themed projects and layouts but great for kids in general or even baby themed items. This would go great for a Noah's Ark theme. Just extremely versatile and with the layering option you can great some adorable embellishments!



  • If You Love the Outdoors...This Is For You (20 July 2011)

    My son is in Cub Scouts. My DH and I are leaders in his pack so I couldn't wait to get my hands on this one. It's awesome! Everything you could ever need that is outdoor themed. I love the font and the words are fantastic. It includes camping and other travel icons so it's great for travel themed layouts and projects too. It's a must have if you are an avid camper.



  • Takes Practice (10 February 2011)

    It took me a few times to get the paper just right but it cuts perfectly. Great edition for the Creatopia.



  • Great for Cards, Home Decor, and Gifts (10 February 2011)

    I bought this to make teacher gifts. I love the journaling spots, the font and the flowers. They are perfect for layouts, cards, home decor items, and gifts.



  • Great for Cards or Layouts (03 January 2011)

    This card is perfect for cards or layouts. There are so many words/expressions to choose and for every occassion. This one is definitely worth getting!



  • A Must for All Distressing Projects (29 December 2010)

    I love the distressed look on things but it was always way too hard to achieve it with the little handheld blade I have. I am so excited that DH bought me this for Christmas this year! It is awesome! It does as little or as much distressing as you want. I love that I can now distress the edges of paper, cardstock, and pictures without ripping them. I messed up so many photos because of the handheld blade ripping it instead of roughing it up. I do think it is a little loud. So I can't use it when my kids are asleep - which is when I do most of my scrapbooking projects. But overall, this is a great project for those who like the aged look for their scrapbook pages, cards, and so much more.



  • This Is A Great Bundle (29 December 2010)

    I received the Creatopia as a Christmas gift this year. I am loving it. I've already used it to emboss a border on a couple of layouts. I love the Cutz feature and I'm sure I'll use it a lot. I haven't used the adhesive yet but I am looking forward to using it for projects I do for my son's Cub Scout pack. It does take a bit of time to learn to work all the components but that's true for any new tool. I most likely will not purchase the Shapez component since I have a Slice and a Cuttlebug but I am definitely going to purchase some of the full embossing rollers. This is a great tool and I'm very happy I have it!



  • Great Fonts (30 September 2010)

    I love my Slice. And this Fonts card is awesome. Great scripty fonts and block lettering too.



  • Beautiful Borders (02 August 2010)

    This punch makes beautiful borders for pages or cards. It does take practice to get edge to edge correct but it is well worth the money.



  • Great Border Punch (02 August 2010)

    This creates a beautiful border for pages or cards. Takes practice to get it edge to edge.



  • Great For Distressing and Other Projects (19 July 2010)

    I am so glad I bought this. The files are perfect for every kind of project. They work to clean the edges of covered chipboard or to distress the edges of anything from chipboard to paper to acyrilic. Great to have on hand.



  • A Real Creative Help (19 July 2010)

    I honestly still get in ruts...but I open this e-book a lot. It's a great way to get the creative juices going!



  • Fun for Birthdays (19 July 2010)

    This was one of the first E-Cuts I ever used. Great for birthday layouts and cards. I love the dimension it gives without the bulk.



  • Great for Small Embellishments (19 July 2010)

    The "X" sticker maker was the first Xyron I ever purchased. I love it! I really like the refills. They are so easy to install and replace. The adhesive really holds and the size is great for small letters or other paper or chipboard embellishments. A must have.



  • Sweet Set (14 July 2010)

    I have this and the second set that goes with it. They are great for love themed layouts or albums as well as everyday layouts.



  • I Love This E-Cut Set (14 July 2010)

    This is a fun set that is great for all grade levels.



  • So Cute (14 July 2010)

  • Love Halloween (14 July 2010)

    I really love the fall and Halloween. I go all out every year :). So this was a must have for me. I love all the details. There are spooky shapes as well as fun ones. I've used it on fall layouts as well as Halloween ones.



  • Calendar Essential (09 July 2010)

    I am so glad I bought this entire collection! I have made several photo calendars and layouts from these. Great to have!



  • Verified Buyer

    Great Book for Beginners (02 July 2010)

    I have been scrapbooking for 8 years so a lot of the information wasn't new to me. But I am always looking for ideas. This book was just what I needed. I highly recommend it to anyone new to scrapbooking.



  • Easy To Use (19 May 2010)

    This is a great tool. I really love how easy it is to change the blades. I also love that it comes with 5 blades.



  • Great For Christmas or Winter Projects (19 May 2010)

    I recently bought this design card and I am in love with it. I wanted the new MS+ features and this card was perfect. I've used it for winter layouts and can't wait to use it on the Christmas photos. I love the shadow feature and the mirroring is awesome for embossing. Great card to have!



  • Don't Know How I Lived Without This (19 May 2010)

    This is the best upgrade MM has made for the Slice! I love it! The magnet feature is awesome and really holds everything in place. It's awesome for embossing - which I didn't do much of because the paper kept moving around. It's well worth the money!



  • Great For Kid Themed Layouts (13 February 2010)

    MM sent me this card as a RAK for a praise email I sent. Gotta love great customer service. I love this one! I have two small children so it's just perfect!!!



  • Love These (23 January 2010)

    I am so glad I got the embossing tips. It opens up a world of possiblities with all the different design cards.



  • Great Adhesive (23 January 2010)

    I have seen a lot of reviews on several sites that the adhesive is horrible. I would recommend it to anyone. I've never had any trouble at all.



  • Great for removing die cuts (23 January 2010)

    I am so glad I got the tool kit and this spatula. It is so handy for removing the die cut shapes, especially the small ones.



  • The Bugs Are Just Too Cute (21 January 2010)

    This design card is so great. I have a very "girly" daughter who is all flowers all the time. The bugs and flowers on the card are just perfect for all the layouts I do for her.



  • This Is Way Easier Than Before (21 January 2010)

    I have had the MM Tag Maker for several years but I rarely used it. The templates that came with it were terrible and I never got the paper to look right. Now that I have the Slice and this design card I am so happy. I use the Tag Maker all the time now. The cuts are perfect and exactly the right size. I have not had one problem with it. Way better than before.



  • A Must Have For Design Cards (21 January 2010)

    I found that my cards were getting lost and I was having way too much trouble finding the books. With this case, that's a thing of the past. The cards and booklets are well protected and it's so much easier to find what I want. I highly recommend this for everyone who has the Slice.



  • Glad I Have It (21 January 2010)

    At first, I didn't think I would use this kit. I have a great pair of scissors, a bone folder, and a good pair of twizzers. But this has honestly come in very handy. I love the scrapper and I've discovered that I pull out the small ruler more than my larger 12 inch one. It's a great accessory for Slice users.



  • Great for Journaling (21 January 2010)

    I got this design card for Christmas and I am in love with it. I love all the tags. It's great for journaling and titles. The basic font is great when you want a title to be understated.



  • Versatile Card (21 January 2010)

    I originally wanted this one for a trip we took where we traveled through several states. But this card is great for all kinds of outdoor things. My son is a Cub Scout and the signs and icons will come in so handy for his pages.



  • Such A Fun Design Card (21 January 2010)

    The shapes and font on this card are so cute. I got this for Christmas and I just can't wait to scrap some spring photos with it. I can see this being used for all kinds of spring and kid themed pages or cards.



  • I Love It! (21 January 2010)

    I really love this design card. The font is great and the icons are so cute. I've made cards and scrapbook pages with it. It's really versatile.

    Great Book For Beginners (01 June 2009)

    This is a great E-Book for beginning scrapbookers. It has great tips and ideas in it. I've been scrapbooking for a while so it really wasn't anything new for me but it would be great to give as a gift.



  • Great Mini Album (24 April 2009)

    I bought this album to use for the Jessica Sprague Stories At Hand class. It worked great. I just used a good adhesive and adhered my patterned paper to the covers. I inked the bare edges and it turned out great. This album is sturdy and works great.



  • Great For Small Embellishments (24 April 2009)

    This is a great adhesive dispenser for small embellishments. It's small and easy to store and the refills are a great price. I use it all the time. It's also great for putting adhesive on something you plan to flock or glitter. No mess!



  • Great Tag Maker (24 April 2009)

    This is a great maker for tags. Easy to use and easy to store. Great little embellishments are at your fingertips with this one. Recommend it to anyone.



  • Essential Tool for Grommets (24 April 2009)

    I love the look of grommets on a page but they were so hard to get perfect. Until I found this kit. It's essential. I love how easy the punches work and how clean they cut. Because you have to use a hammer, I would suggest you use a good self healing mat and not the one it comes with. It will leave marks on the little mat. But other than that, it's a great kit!



  • Great Tool (24 April 2009)

    I'm so glad I purchased the HS Edge Distresser. It works great every time. And the price is fabulous! Great tool to use.



  • Great For Anyone (24 April 2009)

    I have small children and I was always so worried they were going to cut themselves on my scrapbooking tools. With this knife I'm never worried. I love how the blade retracts to keep it clean and safely away from little fingers. It's also an awesome craft knife. Great for small cuts, photos, anything! Great tool to have in your supplies.



  • Takes Practice (24 April 2009)

    I found this takes a lot of practice to get the bars in place exactly where you want them. I do not have an remover so I've made more than enough mistakes that I can't undo. I like the look but I rarely use it.



  • Best Mat Ever (24 April 2009)

    I can't say enough about how great the Magnetic Mat is. I love it! I use it every time I scrap. I don't know how I ever got along without it. My husband uses it a lot too.



  • Never Going Back To Freehand (24 April 2009)

    I used to cut all my curves freehand and they never turned out the way I expected. After using the Flex Ruler, I'll never do it freehand again. It's so great. Any kind of curve is a snap with this tool. Highly recommend it to anyone!



  • Great Machine (24 April 2009)

    I got my Cuttlebug as a gift from my in-laws and I really like it. It's so easy to use. I love how it is safe enough for my kids to use it. My 7 year old son loves to make die cuts for all his projects for school. And the variety of dies is great. They are easily found in all my local craft stores and online. Great little machine.

    Best Corner Punch I've Ever Used (23 April 2009)

    I have had many different corner punches in the 7 years I've been scrapbooking. I have to say, this one is the best and most versatile. I love that it will punch through thicker materials. It cuts cleanly everytime. I also like the fact that all the scraps go into a container that is easily emptied when I'm ready. No more picking up little pieces that stick to everything. I highly recommend the Corner Chomper. It's a great tool for any crafter.



  • The Best Digital Cutter (26 December 2008)

    My DH bought me this for Christmas and I am so excited about it. It is perfect. I don't have a lot of room to store things so this is great. It doesn't take up much room but it does so much. I love that it's cordless and how affordable the cartridges are. I would totally recommend this to anyone.

    Great Mini Album (22 January 2008)

    Great Colors (22 January 2008)

    Great Kit (22 January 2008)

    We took a trip with my husband's parents in July 2007 to Colorado. I bought this to document that trip. I love the colors. I used this as just elements on a normal page and to make a mini album for my in-laws. I've been a fan of E-Cuts for a while because of the high quality. This is no exception.



  • Takes a While to Get the Hang of It (16 January 2008)

    I've never used the original Crop-A-Dile so I wasn't real sure what to do. But this is really easy to use. It takes a while to figure out how much pressure to use to set the eyelets but once you do it's great. The only thing I wish it would do is set any size grommet. But it only works with the We R Memory Keepers grommets which are one-third inch grommets. The only ones I've been able to find are 1 inch or 1.5 inches.



  • Another Great Stamp (04 December 2007)

    What Inspiration (28 September 2007)

    With two small children, I really don't have a lot of time to scrap anymore. so finding inspiration is sometimes next to impossible. That's why I love this book. The layouts are incredible and are so easy to follow. I love that they are simple but yet I can dress them up to fit my own personal style. I highly recommend this one to anyone who needs help getting started.



  • This Is Awesome (28 September 2007)

    I am always in need of help with titles or journaling. This book is just perfect. I have limited space in my scrap area, so I love that the book is stored on my computer so I don't have to worry about finding space to keep a bulky book. And I really love how it is organized into categories. When I want to find a great quote about families all I need to do is click on the page link and there are several to choose from. This is really a great tool for anyone. I highly recommend it.
