    It's a Wrap Collection (09 February 2012)

    This collections is great for making personalized cards. I really enjoyed the flexibility of adding the type of card -- congratulations, or birthday. You can make up several blanks them add the type in a different color or pattern. This is an excellent tool.

    Studio 112 Collections - Die Cut - Swirl (26 September 2012)

    I was not sure when I received these if they would be useful. However, used to hold vellum in place after stamping the swirls where beautiful. I used them on a wedding present card I made that turned out wonderful.

    Graphic 45-Bird Song Collection-Joy Luck (18 October 2012)

    I ordered 1 sheet of this 12 X 12 paper, it is so bright and has such wonderful color combination I'm ordering 5 more. The greeting card combinations and color possibilities are amazing.

    SEI - Cherry Brights Collections - 6 X 6 Paper Pad (23 October 2012)

    Very valuable backgrounds for Birthday or encouragement cards when the stamp is plain or you are using just words.

    Embossing Folder - Springtime Background and borders Set (24 October 2012)

    A very useful tool for those of us who like to create our own backgrounds. Creating an interesting one of a kind background for cards was exciting - I added color with a stamp pad --- gold on white; silver on forest green.

    Travel Collection - 12 X 12 - Double Sided Paper - Bon Voyage (24 October 2012)

    Paper has a shine to it, which was not expected. I liked the dotted better. Used to punch vowels in an alphabet set made for a grandchild's Christmas present.

    Sugar Tree - 12 X 12 Paper - Blue Paisley (24 October 2012)

    Love it, better than what I expected. This multicolored blue can be used with lots of other blues (blue is a very hard color to match) and other contrasting colors. The deep purple outlines and lime dots can add interest to any project.

    Essential Tool Kit (24 October 2012)

    This kit takes the place of small glasses, several paint brushes, spray bottles, and Q-tips that clutter my work space. It will travel well for those of us who take our supplies on vacation.

    Bazzill Basics - 8.5 x 11 Vellum - white -21lb. (29 October 2012)

    Sugar Tree - 12 X 12 Paper - Evergreen and Pine (28 November 2012)

    I used this paper to complete Christmas cards. On it's own the paper is unimpressive, using it as background for images stamped on cream, ivory or off white paper provides a beautiful card. Add bright or dark green ribbon brings it up to a very interesting creation.

    Martha Stewart - Mini Scoring Board (28 November 2012)

    Excellent tool -- I never thought I needed a score board until I saw a "You tube" demonstration to enhance the face of a card. I've used it now to make two mini scrapbooks, enhance the face of cards and to create perfectly folded cards. You need practice if like me you have always hand folded your cards.
