  • Nice sketchy design (02 October 2014)

    This stencil is by Rebeka Meier (not Julie Fei-Fan Balzer as labeled in photo).
    Crafter's Workshop has the best stencils.



  • Punches holes in paper causing waste or damage.. (09 June 2014)

    I thought this would be a good tool for me when I wanted smaller pieces of paper without getting out the paper cutter and the corner rounder. It is designed so there are 2 hole punches about 1/2" outside the main cut on each long side causing whatever you are cutting out of to be damaged and wasting the other portions of the paper or photo. I thought I could also use this as not only as a positive cutter but also a negative one as well--ie cut out a window. Those punch pegs kill that idea and make this a less functional tool. I thought would be easy and multi-functional. I had not seen any videos of the tool being used so was unaware of this thoughtless design flaw. No one has ever mentioned it in the reviews that I have searched out. Isn't there a way to hold the paper in place without the pegs, not have slippage, center the paper or photo and still have a multi-functional tool?
    Also, right out of the box it was making fuzzy cuts.

  • Not even 2 ounces!!! (16 August 2013)

    Wow, such a small amount. It is smaller that all other sprays and close to the same price. Colorbox this is not good.
    I would give this a no star if it was possible.
    Not I have not tried it yet as I will have to get it on sale!



  • Positive and negative space and product representation.... (17 April 2013)

    Prima has some very good stencils out this time around they especially have trouble representing their mask/stencil items so the buyer will know which is the positive and negative space.
    Usually manufactures have the black represent the ink or color that you are applying, but in this case it is the white that is the area that will be your painted or gessoed surface.
    The examples that are shown from users are very helpful at determining this and it is not Scrapbook.com that provides the images.
    Now that stencils and masks are very popular a standard needs to be adhered to so the buyer will know what they are receiving.

    good quality spray and color (02 September 2012)

    I like these sprays when I want a water soluble one. This color is nice and bright....these do not have a shimmer and that is good for certain things.

    Love this spray--perfect coverage and color (02 September 2012)

    This is the first time I have tried this mist and I love it.
    Good sprayer...and I have heard that they even improved that recently. The color has lots of depth and I like the way it pools and makes the puddles. This color is good as an accent as it is not too bright.

    great color and coverage (04 January 2012)

    I like the stains for the convenience of use and the fantastic colors.
    Adding color directly to a project for a layered look with the applicator, with a paintbrush or dragging project through a puddle are all good. One can deepen color by re-application.



  • Verified Buyer

    fabulous! (04 January 2012)

    These glitter glues are good as they have a high ration of glitter to goop in the tube to give one a nice and sparkly coverage.
    This is bye far the most versatile color as it adds a good sparkle without being too over the top. Adding just a bit really finishes a project.
    It is hard deciding what color to get as they are all nice.

    Fun product (04 January 2012)

    I like this tissue paper for collage as it is thin and easy to form onto 3-d objects or onto paper. The roll has 26 feet of paper on it coming out to approx .65 a foot. It is 12 in wide and comes in a package not unlike the kitchen foil etc....with a little cutting edge that makes for convenient use.
    I think that a package of an assortment papers or 2 different designs of 6 inches would be nice as I had to choose one and would want to purchase others only if on sale as it does seem a tad expensive.



  • Verified Buyer

    great designs and product (04 January 2012)

    This die is so versatile with the three designs that actually give you more strips as the negatives can be used too. Total of 6 strips.

    I only wish that they would make these in the bigz dies so one could cut thicker material.



  • Verified Buyer

    good quality and design (20 December 2011)

    Good stencil made out of plastic. It is a different size---8 X 5 3/4--- that makes it more convenient for me in my multi media art use.
    This is a good value tool that will get lots of use.



  • Verified Buyer

    good concept, foam/handle good: attachment need work (20 December 2011)

    These a great tools---the concept anyway, but the velcro piece comes off right away. On this one that I just received, it was already detached in the package!!
    Getting fed up with the ones I have too.
    On two of these I have tried the Inkesentials/Ranger Wonder Tape and it came undone.(I guess it is not that wonder-ful!) The velcro backing is very hard and plastic like so tape does not stick too well.

    colorful and good paper (15 December 2011)

    Good for other things other than scrap booking as id does not have the fading and vignetting of other papers.

    good paper tape (15 December 2011)

  • tears unevenly-lengthwise, not sticky enough for the price (03 November 2011)

    I have some of this tape and it is not coming off of the roll very evenly, as it is coming off in tiny lengthwise slivers. It is also not as sticky as I would like. This is not a good value for the money.

    This is made in response to the Japanese paper tape which is a good product and performs better.

    These are useful for many techniques, not just misting. Shading with stamp pad ink or paint is good.
    Just a note-the black area you see is the mask.
    The material is a bit thin, but should last with care.
