    Nostalgic Perfection! (09 April 2012)

    I love it when a product line exceeds my expectations! Such is the case with the Little Darlings collection by Graphic 45. The artwork is exquisite and the papers can be used for heritage pages as easily as current baby themes. Usually in a collection, there are some papers that I don't care for and I choose not to use them. I ADORE every page in this collection and have every embellishment that goes with the set. In fact, the moment I saw this collection in the sneak peeks from CHA, I knew it would be a priority purchase for me. My mother, who is almost 84 years old, said some of the papers remind her of expensive wallpaper from the 1930s and 40s. I agree! You will be delighted when you see this collection in person!

    CRAZY for the new colors!! (09 April 2012)

    I am a huge fan of Liquid Pearls and when I heard they had a whole new crop of colors coming out, I couldn't wait to get my hands on them! I bought all of them....two of each color in some cases. The new colors are hard to find and even though my LSS placed an early order, they did not get many of the new colors. They are currently on back order. But, I KNEW Scrapbook.com would be on top of it!! Thank you, SB.com. I am having so much fun playing with all the colors!

  • WRMK Knows Their Stuff! (24 February 2011)

    I love every tool We R Memory Keepers puts on the market; however, I was skeptical about the Sew Easy system. My friend bought one, and when I saw how easy it truly was and how easily the heads were to switch out, I had to buy my own. Even works on my heaviest cardstock. I'm addicted to tools and handy gadgets, so if you're a fellow addict, you'll want to add the system to your scrap tote, too.

  • A bit disappointed :( (14 February 2011)

    First of all, let me say that I am a big fan of the EK Success edger punches. I think I have 9 or 10 now! This particular edger is touted as an embossing punch. Where is the embossing? When I turn my punch upside down, the steel cutter is as flat as a pancake. I don't see any embossing capability there at all. The one thing that redeems the purchase of this punch is that I love the size of the scallop design. So...inspite of my disappointment at the lack of embossing and what I feel is a misleading claim, I decided to keep the punch.

  • Christmas Present to Myself! (14 February 2011)

    When I returned two of the three scarf/glove sets I got for Christmas, I took the money and went scrapbook shopping! This paw punch was a top priority!! I am accumulating a large collection of EK Success edger punches.
    1) I love the size.
    2) I love the quality.
    3) I love the lock on the bottom.
    4) I especially love that the punches are stackable!

  • Karen's "Favorite Things" (14 February 2011)

    You know how Oprah has her "Favorite Things" show every year? Well, if I had my own show (and now a whole network!), Martha Stewart's Around the Page punches would be on that list! I am doing two baby albums right now and this is currently my favorite set to play with. I love all the loopy whimsy of it.

    Not all the punch sets are easy to use; sometimes the silver guide markings are confusing, but with practice, I have picked up the techniques and LOVE using them.

  • Gotta have this! (14 February 2011)

    I think the new Puffies by KI Memories are adorable! This set in particular is a "must have" for me and will be on my wish list for my next order. Dogs are my favorite scrapping subject and I think these will be perfect embellies for future pages. I'm very impressed by the quality of the stitching on the Puffy pieces. No wonder KI Memories is one of my favorite manufacturers. I was in a certain craft store yesterday and spent a small fortune because the KI Memories goodies were 40% off!

  • Nostalgic Bliss! (14 February 2011)

    There is just something about the Jack and Jill collection by Prima that I can't resist. I am completely addicted and want every single piece of the collection! The artwork is flawless and takes me back to my childhoold and some favorite books I adored. Prima is first class all the way and this collection does not disappoint! The only problem? I "have" to buy at least two or three pieces of each paper because the other side is always adorable! Rats!! ;D

  • New Favorite Font! (16 January 2011)

    I have a HUGE collection of American Craft Thickers and have nothing but love for all of them! So when I recently discovered these new white puffy Thickers, I flipped out over the font and bought four packages! I adore "tall" fonts that have a touch of whimsy to them. I always look forward to seeing AC's new designs and color choices.

  • Feed My Addiction! (14 January 2011)

    Yep, I admit I'm an edge punch addict and I was so happy to find this cute picket fence punch by Fiskars. I never hesitate to buy a Fiskars product because I've found their customer service to be great! One of my border punches jammed and they replaced it quickly with an extra gift thrown in. I had to buy a second picket fence punch for my sister because she kept borrowing mine!

  • Must See to Appreciate! (14 January 2011)

    I am always looking for a good bargain as a scrapbooking addict! I was overjoyed to discover the E Line products by Prima. I've always appreciated the beautiful Prima flowers, flouishes, bling, and of course, their paper collections and I've accumulated quite a stash over the years. Now I am amassing quite a collection of their E Line flowers at a price that can't be beat! The Chelsea Collection is so cute and whimsical with its embossed design. I want them in every color!

  • Great Bargain! (14 January 2011)

    White flowers are not easy to find. Leave it to Prima to provide beautiful white flowers and make them affordable, too! These flowers are fun to work with because they can be inked, chalked, or misted any color you need. I do a lot of wedding albums and I go through many packages of white flowers every year. I always keep a good stock of E Line blooms around!

  • CRAZY About These! (14 January 2011)

    I love flourishes! It was such a happy surprise when I found these in the Superstore. I love making my own flourishes using jewels or dimensional paint. This is the perfect tool to help me create the exact look I want. My favorite thing about the Jewel Templates is that I can use them directly on my page without having to fussy-cut them from a clear plastic sheet. Highly recommend this fun (and addicting!) tool.

    Misleading name (12 July 2010)

    I received an order today from SB.com and was sorely disappointed in this item. They have added a second photo to show an empty tote, but I, too, thought "travel pack" meant that it came with smaller, travel size paint daubers. NOT THE CASE! I will more carefully read the fine print from now on. The empty carrying case is fine, but I would rather have spent my money on actual paint, not another tote bag. Sigh.

  • I'm Keeping It! (01 May 2010)

    I just bought this pack for a friend, but guess what?? I'M KEEPING IT! I will have to get her something else for her birthday. This is even cuter in person and you know that with Basic Grey, it's always top quality! Yep, I'm holding on to this set. Perfect papers for my pet pages!

    Best of the Best!! (27 April 2010)

    Okay. I have to confess: so far, this is my favorite of The Crafter's Workshop doodling templates, and I have a bunch of them. I love the versatility of this one and it's such fun to use! These templates aren't just for doodling, so don't let the name fool ya!

    Just what I was looking for! (30 September 2009)

    I wanted to do a Disney album for my friend Nini's birthday present. I'd never done a Disney-themed album before and was hoping to find something to make it easy on me! Finding this album kit was so great! I love the darling album with all of its dimension and texture! It's loaded with fun papers and tons of stickers that are helping the album come together perfectly! I couldn't be happier with this kit.

    Fun to play with!! (30 June 2009)

    I love using these rub ons because everyone thinks I did the stitching by machine! My experience with rub ons has been iffy, but these are very easy to use and I have had no problems applying them. Love this product!

    HOW did I live without it? (04 June 2009)

    I have 7 different Crafter's Workshop templates and love them all. This one, Dots All Around, has to be my favorite, though! It is the first one I bought and the one I (and my scrapping friends!) use the most. Love it for many different looks: half-circles, full circles, setting brads or eyelets, any project where you want to add movement to your page, this is a go-to tool.

    Perfect name! (01 June 2009)

    Doggone Cute Collection is the perfect name for this line by Carolee's Creations Adornit! I always love their paper and embellishment collections, but the dog lines are my favorite! This collection is so much fun to play with and very versatile too! I also really love the bright, cheerful colors.

    Love this collection! (06 May 2009)

    Oh yes, I am a major fan of anything by Cosmo Cricket, but this Everafter Collection is absolutely stunning! When I first saw the color scheme online, I wasn't too sure if it was for me. THEN I saw it in person and was blown away!!

    Love, friendship, marriage, anniversaries...this collection is completely versatile. There is a vintage look to everything but nothing is dull or boring! This is a line that is both beautiful and whimsical with a color palette you must see to appreciate! The chipboard embellishments are to die for and I can't wait to use them on the wedding albums I'm doing for my bff and her DIL.

  • We R Memory Keepers scores 5 Stars!!! (06 May 2009)

    Finally, a corner rounder that truly works! I hate to even think how much money I've invested in corner rounders that either didn't punch at all or left little pieces of fringe. Just like their Crop a Dile and Big Bite, WRMK has built a tool that is easy to use and does exactly what I paid for it to do!! My old corner rounders will be heading for the donation box at my LSS!

  • How did I live without it?? (07 April 2009)

    I love rub-ons but wasted so many because the popsicle stick just didn't do the job getting the transfer completed. When I found this new-at-the-time tool, I thought the price would be worth it if it could improve my chances of using rub-ons successfully. I was not disappointed! My only problem is getting it back from my friends who borrow it at crops!

    Thank you, Bo Bunny! (07 April 2009)

    Anyone who looks in my gallery knows that my favorite thing to do is dog layouts! I am always on the lookout for companies that offer dog papers in their collections. When I saw this new Pet Shop line by Bo Bunny, I couldn't wait to get it! The papers are so cute and I love the colors they chose! I hope to do a couple of pages this weekend using this wonderful collection.

  • So much prettier in real life! (07 April 2009)

    The pictures cannot do these papers justice! I am crazy about all the latest lines from Bo Bunny and this is one of my favorites! Bo Bunny has really stepped up their game as far as I'm concerned! The Alissa line is so pretty and the hard part is deciding which side to use!! No problem...I bought 4 of each! There are flowers, rub-ons and stickers to match, along with some punch-out journaling blocks and embellies. I love it all!

  • Perfect special touch! (27 March 2009)

    I was so happy when I discovered these wonderful chipboard elements! I have this set and also the Creme de Cocoa set. These are not your ordinary, flimsy chipboard pieces! I love the detail on them and the high quality of the chipboard! I am having so much fun playing with this set!! I will definitely buy more!

  • Not a dud in the bunch! (17 March 2009)

    You know how sometimes you buy a paperpack and some of the papers are just ho-hum and gather dust in your stash?? This is NOT one of those packs!

    This is something I have come to expect with every BasicGrey collection I've purchased. Even though they carry out a specific theme, I found this pack to be completely versatile and used it on four entirely different projects! The papers are rich with color and texture and I could not recommend this pack more highly!

  • Versatile with a capitol V!! (17 March 2009)

    These acrylic goodies are some of my latest and greatest finds! They are so versatile and fun to play with! You can paint them, cut them, trace them, let your creativity run wild!!
    The price is so reasonable too for all that you get in a set! I will be buying many more of these you can be sure!!

    Whimsical and FUN!!! (23 February 2009)

    I am a huge fan of all DCWV products, but The Pets Stack papers and this collection of chipboard pieces are my favorite! It even comes with alphas and every piece matches the papers perfectly. With 100 shapes and letters, there's a lot of cute goodies to play with! You'll love it all!!

    My favorite pet collection EVER!! (23 February 2009)

    I can't say enough about The Pets Stack! I bought three of the 12x12 and two of the 8x8 because I want to make sure I have plenty on hand to do my pet albums!! I seem to constantly be doing pet pages (and whole albums) for family and friends and great products are hard to find! I have the embellishment box also. The papers are very high quality, thick cardstock and are so versatile! Some are even embossed and have glitter. Can't beat that! I'll never get bored playing with this wonderful collection!!

    My Go-To Tool! (12 February 2009)

    I bought this set when it first came out and it is my go-to tool! I brag it up so much that my LSS has had to re-order it over and over! Not only is it functional, it's pretty too! ;)
    Thank you, Basic Grey!

    I love whimsical! (06 January 2009)

    These are my go-to letters! The font is so whimsical and fun. I have this style in every color they make and I don't ever want to run out! Thanks to sb.com, I won't have to!!

    My Favorite Albums! (05 January 2009)

    I have several of these albums and they are so versatile! I have used 12x12 pages, 8.5x11 pages, and 4x6 pages in it. An employee at a local store introduced me to these albums and I don't think I'll ever use anything else. Country Blue is my favorite color choice right now as well as the Cobalt Blue.

  • Favorite Christmas present! (05 January 2009)

    I have a very limited space to scrap and was either using the DR table or a card table. My brother and SIL got this table for me and I love it! When I have pages in progress and need to leave for awhile, I can cover it up and no one sees my creative mess! So happy with the Scrap-N-Stow!
