    Fantastic! (21 October 2012)

    I love this baker's twine - good quality and you get a good amount for the price. I also like that it is on a spool instead of a flat card - no creases in the twine.

    Elegant! (02 October 2012)

    I am Teresa Collins' newest fan. I purchased one of her collection packs a few months ago, and I was very impressed with the quality of the paper. I love the elegance and versatility of this collection. Would be great for wedding, dances, teens, holidays, etc.

    Very cute and versatile! (02 October 2012)

    Love the colors and small patterns in this collection! I've used this pack like crazy and still have a few sheets left. A great value for the price.



  • Verified Buyer

    Cheap quality (02 October 2012)

    I was very disappointed in the cheap quality of these embellishments - definitely not up to BG's standards.



  • Verified Buyer

    Very disapointing (02 October 2012)

    How can I put this delicately? The majority of these papers are...well... ugly. I have struggled to use enough of this pack to get my money's worth. I'm usually a big fan of BG, but this collection leaves a lot to be desired.

    Love the traditional Christmas colors! (02 October 2012)

    I am so happy with this Christmas paper pack! I love the traditional Christmas reds. I just received this week but it is already becoming one of my favorite Christmas collections.

    Never dreamed I would use this so much! (06 March 2012)

    When I ordered this, I wasn't sure how much I would use it. Now I don't know how I lived without it. It is the easiest distressing tool I have ever used. I used to use the Tim Holtz distressing tool, but this one is much more ergonomic. I've found that I also enjoy using the metal brush on photos. I am so satisfied with my purchase!

    Genius little invention! (06 March 2012)

    I ordered this item because it was on sale with a few reservations that it wouldn't be large enough for me. I was wrong! The scrap holder will hold a lot more trash than you think! It is also so much easier to dump your trash into a container at table level as opposed to bending down to a trash can in the floor. It's a fantastic addition to my scrap table.



  • Happy as a clam with this adhesive! (10 March 2011)

    I am so happy that I found this adhesive!! It works really well, and one refill lasts a long time. Worth the money!!

    Unique and affordable! (01 May 2010)

    These little bingo cards attracted me because they were different than the usual page embellishment. I wasn't sure I'd be able to use them. However, I've already used all but one and want to order more!! They are easy to distress for that aged look to heritage pages.

    Hint: The package includes an insert with all 6 cards printed in mini size - I cut those apart and used them on pages too.



  • Verified Buyer

    Warning - addictive!! (15 January 2010)

    The E-line is just the greatest little value. It's sooooo hard for me to stop buying them once I start! I use black a lot, so these were a perfect choice for me.



  • Verified Buyer

    My favorite stickles color! (15 January 2010)

    I use this color of stickles all the time. There are several "whites" of stickles, but some have yellow undertones, some blue, etc. This one is a pure white and is more opaque than the others. I can't function without Frosted Lace on hand!



  • Verified Buyer

    Great red tones!! (15 January 2010)

    I love the style and colors of these flowers. For $1.49 you just can't beat the value!! Very versatile.



  • Verified Buyer

    Great for tracing! (15 January 2010)

    I didn't buy these to use as stitching templates. I bought them to trace the flourishes to draw or dot on my pages. Great variety of swirls! Worth the price.



  • Verified Buyer

    Hard to find colors in bling! (15 January 2010)

    These are great colors - very hard to find pearls and jewels in these colors. Fantastic bargain!!



  • Verified Buyer

    Too pink (15 January 2010)

    I purchased this thinking it was a light brown. It has a lot of pink undertones and looked pink when I painted it. If you want a brownish color don't choose this one.

    Overall I like the paint dabbers, just not this color.

    Biggest waste of money ever (15 January 2010)

    I've heard so much about BasicGrey, so when I saw this paper was a 12 Days of Christmas deal, I thought it was the perfect time to give it a try. I have never been so disapointed. This is the ugliest paper I have ever bought. I bought 2 packs so I would have 2 of each pattern. I tried to return it, but the return shipping was going to cost me more than the paper did. The only reason I haven't thrown it in the trash all together is that I plan to use the plain white side as white paper. Don't make the mistake I did and waste your money with this pack.

    Color variety (03 December 2009)

    I've purchased several packs of these Prima E Line flowers. This particular pack was my least favorite, but I have found uses for a good many of them. My pack had only one green flower. The colors are paler and more muted in real life than in this photo. Still a great deal at $1.49!



  • Verified Buyer

    Great deal on pretty flowers!! (03 December 2009)

    I can't believe all these Prima E Line flowers are so cheap! I've used these flowers on several pages and still have plenty to spare. I really like the whites, however, they aren't a white white, more like a winter white. Very pretty!



  • Verified Buyer

    A must have! (03 December 2009)

    I bought several packages of the Prima E Line flowers, and I just adore them! I could honestly buy every pack they make and find a way to use them. They adhere well with glue dots. I love the variety of colors and designs.



  • Verified Buyer

    Love these colors!! (03 December 2009)

    I can't say enough about the Prima - E Line flowers - they are very pretty at a super price! I really like these brown colors. They go well with masculine or fall pages.



  • Verified Buyer

    What a bargain!!! (03 December 2009)

    I am in love with the Prima - E Line flowers!! They are a great deal, and the flowers are so versatile! They are the perfect size to work with, not too small where they can't be seen, and not too large so that they overpower the page.



  • Verified Buyer

    A must have if you travel! (07 November 2009)

    If you ever travel to scrap, these boxes are a must have!! They save a ton of spaces versus packing each cart box, and keeps them well protected. The ribbon in my box didn't last very long though, but you don't really need it to keep the overlays in place.



  • Verified Buyer

    Perfect size! (09 October 2009)

    I love thickers, especially the foam ones. This font is the perfect size, not too big, not too small. They have just enough thickness to add depth and interest to your pages without being too bulky. I'm an official thicker addict now!



  • Verified Buyer

    My new favorite embellishment! (19 September 2009)

    These are my new favorite things to decorate a page. I bought the white set because I wasn't sure what I would do with them. You can easily paint them or cover them with stickles to coordinate with any layout. Since they are precut they make finishing a page much faster.



  • Verified Buyer

    Great item at a great price! (19 September 2009)

    I bought these at regular price, and I thought they were a good deal then. Since they're on sale it's even better! These little strips are a quick and easy way to dress up your pages in a flash. Just run them through a Xyron machine, slap 'em on the page and you're done! The loopy border is my favorite.



  • Verified Buyer

    Favorite border punch! (16 September 2009)

    Every time I use this punch I like it more and more!! I know other reviewers had a hard time lining up the punched edges, but I didn't have a problem with it. I like the design, it is very versatile.



  • Verified Buyer

    Best scallop template! (16 September 2009)

    This is my favorite scallop template - the scallops are larger and are easier to cut. There are a variety of sizes to fit on any design.



  • Verified Buyer

    Rich colors! (04 September 2009)

    This paper is so high quality - cuts like butter! Very nice weight. Colors are so rich and vibrant! I wish I had more of it!



  • Verified Buyer

    Absolute must for Disney pages! (28 August 2009)

    If you're planning a Disney scrapbook, this item should be the first thing in your cart! Nice quality punch - I've had mine for years and it still works great. I have the smaller one as well and they are great for layering.



  • Verified Buyer

    Color not as pictured (27 August 2009)

    I love this color - but it doesn't look anything like the picture here. It's actually much lighter and a truer "lime" color.



  • Verified Buyer

    Doodling templates make it easier to be creative! (27 August 2009)

    I love my doodling templates from The Crafter's Workshop! This one appealed to me because it's a little different than the typical scalloped edges. Nice swirls that can be used in a variety of ways. I traced the outside "postage stamp" edges and cut - it's harder than it looks! Next time I will probably just trace on my background sheet with a Zig Pen and not try to cut it out.



  • Verified Buyer

    Perfect for Disney Dining (27 August 2009)

    This paper was perfect for photos from any character meal, especially Chef Mickey's since the characters wear chef hats. The paper isn't a very heavy weight, but it is a nice quality. I almost felt bad about covering it up--it's so cute!



  • Verified Buyer

    Nice quality paper (27 August 2009)

    This paper is a nice weight and good quality. The brownish side is actually pink in person.



  • Verified Buyer

    Versatile color! (27 August 2009)

    This color is one of the more versatile colors of Stickles. Works great with brown, oranges, rust, and even some darker reds.



  • Larger flecks of glitter (27 August 2009)

    Just a note - this color has some larger flecks of glitter than some of the other stickles. The tip has a little larger whole as well.

    Cuts down on aggravation! (14 March 2009)

    Ever fought with a roll of glue dots? It is so aggravating when they stick where you don't want them to - the table, your arm, etc. This dispenser is a life saver! It makes it so much easier to apply the glue dot whereever you want it. I only wish that it was refillable. The convenience is worth the extra cost in my book though!



  • Verified Buyer

    Very versatile! (14 March 2009)

    I'm still learning new ways to use this template! The orchid shape is so popular right now. I found that if using the outside edge is too large, then use the smaller dotted shape - connect the dots and cut. It's also a great circle template as there are several size circles to choose from. The inside sunburst pattern really makes a striking addition to a page.



  • Now I know exactly what ribbons I have! (03 March 2009)

    This has to be the easiest way to see and store all your ribbon, whether it is loose or on a spool. I sorted my ribbons by color so that all the reds are together, blues together, etc. on the ribbon purse. It was a great way to see which colors I had or didn't have. I also loved getting my ribbon off those cards. Some of my ribbon were on large spools, and I put the entire spool inside the ribbon purse. I even had room to put my ribbon iron inside. No more dumping out my box of ribbon to find a particular color. Not to mention it's so darn cute when your ribbons are displayed all over the outside!
