    Karen Foster - Maternity Collection (01 April 2015)

    The colors in this collection were difficult to use. They were entirely to dark and drab. I only used one of the stickers. I am a big fan of Karen Foster, but this did not work well for me.

    Karen Foster - Maternity Collection (01 April 2015)

    This collection is a cute idea, but I found myself re-configuring everything to make it work for 'pocket page' scrapbooking. I also backed what I used with heavier paper to make it more durable. I am glad I had it to use, but it took some effort to make it work.

    Moxxie - Faith Collection (01 April 2015)

    This is a really pretty collection. I used this in combination with the Reminisce-Baptism collection. The colors an be used for boy or girl and for the older child. I will definitely use this product again.

    Baby Boy Collection-New Born (01 April 2015)

    The New Born section is really important when documenting a baby's 1st year and often left out. This was a nice way to start chronicling Baby's 1st Year. Loved the subtle colors used in this collection.

    Baby Boy Collection (01 April 2015)

    I really enjoyed using this collection for a mother-to-be. The title cards and journaling cards had nice prompts. The colors blended nicely with other product I already owned. I am excited about the finished product.

    We R Memory Keepers - Card Punch - 3x4 (10 December 2013)

    We R Memory Keepers is known for their quality products, but this is the exception. The Punch doesn't give a clean cut and leaves holes around the outer edge of the paper! The idea is great! Hopefully they will take the punch back to the drawing board and improve it!

    Her - 3x4 Cards (20 October 2013)

    I haven't used this collection, but gave it a 5-Star, because I have never been disappointed with Simple Stories products! Never! I think these will work with the 'tween' girl - not to young or sophisticated - that's hard to find!

    Smarty Pants Sticker Expressions (20 October 2013)

    This is perfect when you only need a 'one word' description or when you need a variety of words ... it's all there for you! The alphabets are always a plus!

    Smarty Pants 4x6 Cards (20 October 2013)

    I am so excited about these 'school themed' cards. I always need product to document school events and this works for most if not all ages. Thank you Simple Stories!

    Say Cheese (20 October 2013)

    This collection works really well for documenting memories. It is great for Traditional and Project Life pages. The lighter weight card stock means a lighter weight album ... that's a plus for me!

    8x8 Chipboard Album Covers (20 February 2012)

    8x8 albums are hard to find. This product allows you to create the perfect album for your project. The quality of chipboard is excellent. This will be my 7th album and because these albums are for my grandchildren, the durability is key. I definitely recommend this!

    Teresa Collins 8x8 Chipboard Album Covers (20 February 2012)

    How exciting to find an 8x8 chipboard album beautifully covered and ready for embellishing. I grabbed this to use with another product line and hope to find more album cover options in the future. 6x6 seems to be the favored size, but I love working with the larger 8x8 ... more room for pictures and embellishments. Thank you, Teresa Collins

    Life Documented Collection (28 October 2011)

    Love the look of this paper! It works for males as well as females. I'm using it for a guys 40th Birthday Album as well as a 10 yr. old's album. It's smart, not cute!

    Tim Holtz Textured Cardstock (28 October 2011)

    Cannot wait to use this paper...especially for the guys, young and old! I may order a 2nd pad as back-up before feeling comfortable ripping into the 1st...a lot of uses for this look!

    I'm always on the look out for good embellishments for that young boy 4 to 7... these work!

    Fancy Pants Brag Book (28 October 2011)

    I ordered this in hopes it would satisfy my grandchildren's desire for a 'Smash Book' like their Mothers and it works! I will personalize the front of each book with their name and grade and give each child embellishments to use as they choose. I'm also considering doing the same for my non-scrapbooking friends. This is definitely a stocking stuffer!

    We R Memory Keepers Advent Calendar Kit (28 October 2011)

    I purchased this to make with my grandchildren. Although my expectations were unrealistic concerning their level of concentration, they loved the finished product and were quick to take ownership. I'm now anxious to make the advent kit with a second set of grandchildren and again, experience their excitement in the finished product.

    I make 'summer albums' for my grandchildren and always need fun embellishments. It's so nice to see new product that is perfectly themed for your project. Can't wait to put them to use!
