  • Review: Spellbinders - Shapeabilities Collection - D-Lites - Die Cutting and Embossing Template - Flower Box

    I don't recommend this product

    Not Worth The Money (27 August 2014)

    I have this die. Spellbinders' earlier dies were lovely and a joy to use. This die, and others like it, are too over-done and the paper design is too difficult to extract from the die once it is cut. I have yet to be able to remove a die cut from this die without tearing, and I am a careful paper crafter and particular about my work.

  • Review: Unhinged Creative - Stickles Storage Container - Double Tier Designer Glitter Glue Holder

    I recommend this product

    Not Quite A Great Product (26 November 2012)

    This product is a good idea that missed being a great idea by only about 1/4". I learned a lot about the caps on all the little bottles of Stickles, Color Box reinker bottles, alcohol ink bottles, Liquid Pearls bottles, and so on. They all look alike, except for one crucial detail. There are "long nose" caps and "short nose" caps. The difference is only about 3/16". The level of the lower tier needs to re raised slightly to keep the long nosed bottle caps from tilting to the outside and falling out of the holes when the cylinder cover is removed. The top tier also needs to be raised enough to keep the caps on those bottles from catching on and dislodging the bottom tier bottles. There is just enough room under the cylinder cover to allow the height adjustment. Since I am not one to do things by halves--I bought 10 of these to hold all my bottles--I had to make them work. I experimented with paper washers cut from double thick paper, but it took multiple washers to do the trick. I soon had my fill of cutting all those washers, even when using paper punches. Metal fender washers were difficult to find (and expensive), requiring a 9/16" inner opening and a max outer dia. of 1". In the midst of my angst I noticed a thin rubber band lying on my desk top. There was the no cost solution right before me. Wrap a thin rubber band tightly around the central stem several times. It can be rolled up or down, like a grommet, with the fingers. Fine adjustments can easily be made to lift the bottle caps just enough to clear. The outer cylinder has just enough extra room at the top to still fit. Of course, rubber bands do rot because of the acid in them, but they are abundant and easy to replace. It would have been nice for the designers of this storage idea to have noticed the slight difference in bottle caps and adjusted the design just enough that all bottles fit, so this twiddling wouldn't be necessary. That's what keeps this storage idea from being a 5-star idea.

    Notes From A Fan Of Grqphic 45 (26 November 2012)

    What can I say about Graphic 45 paper that hasn't already been said? The designs are a tasteful update of period graphic art that creates a nostalgic mood based on the 1920s and '30s. The paper is a satisfying heavy weight and printed double sided. The coordinated sheets of tags, stickers, and fonts further add to the look. I am a great fan of this line of paper.

    EK Success 2 1/4" circle punch: Excellent Design (06 October 2012)

    The redesigned punches from EK Success are absolutely marvelous. Finally someone thought outside of the boxy button punches and came up with a design that does all the right things. It punches as easily upside down as it does right side up. And, best of all, it locks and stores like no other punch. I would replace all my old button punches with this new design if I could.
