    Sure! (20 July 2010)

    This is something you could have in the bottom of your embellishment drawer for a year and never use. Then, when just the right project comes along, you'll be so glad you have these on hand and it will transform your project into a stunning work of art. Again, I don't think you'll use them very often; but you might be glad to have them some day.

    Buy this! (20 July 2010)

    I have this little goodie in two sizes. You could get by with one if it were this larger one, but it's handy to have both. If you ever work with ribbon, you absolutely need this. It will turn your project with the crooked ribbon placement, the glue peeking out and the frayed ribbon edges into a professional looking project you can be proud of. My new favorite way to use it is to run a cardstock embellishment or a pattern cut or punched from cardstock through the little gadget and use the resulting goodie as a seal on an envelope flap. More wonders await--I just have to put on my thinking cap and figure out what they are :-)

    Beautiful Paper, Bad Packaging (20 July 2010)

    This paper is exquisite! Just a soft, lovely sheen. My new favorite is pearl cardstock; it provides a beautiful backdrop for embellishments on a card. I think it's inexcusable how it's packaged, though. Just expect every single American Crafts product you order, and that is packaged in one of their cartons with the right top corner exposed, to arrive damaged. And that does not change with ordering the product from a different vendor. I do not scrapbook; I make cards. If I were a scrapbooker, I would have had to return the product, but since I need it only for cards I was able to trim off the bad corner.

    Great! (20 July 2010)

    I had a hard time getting the container open--not sure if that's a reflection on the container or on me :-) These are really nice. I made a card I had been staring at for a couple of days. It had a bare spot that really needed something, but no matter how many times I looked through my "goodies", I just didn't have the right thing. Then my shipment came, I opened it, slapped one of these on the card, and voila! instant perfection.

    Sure, why not? (20 July 2010)

    This embellishment is small, but if you can find just the right card or LO, it will add a nice touch.

    Just okay (20 July 2010)

    These are not my favorite. They're quite small, and they're just a metal brad with a painted-on pattern. They're not horrible, but I've purchased many other brads that I like better.
