    Any knitter would cherish this (09 March 2015)

    Not only for you as a knitter, but think of your knitting buddies and make tags as gifts. Great designs to suit your projects.



  • Verified Buyer

    Ski Slopes or Green Meadows (09 March 2015)

    The stitched curves are great for landscapes and the stitching lends a visual texture. The borders do not have a defined edge opposite the design, so the width is up to you. The circle and triangle are added bonnus.

    Lovely album base to work on (09 March 2015)

    Can't say enough about how well these albums are made. Will be getting more of them.



  • Verified Buyer

    clever closures for the Gatefold album (09 March 2015)

    Works beautifully on the Gate Fold album. Nice weight and construction. I would not use it on a side closing except if you made a fake leather belly band sort of wrap so it could lie flat on the front of the album. The two pieces must be positioned along side each other as in the photo.



  • Verified Buyer

    Sort your paper easily (09 March 2015)

    No bent edges or snags with these when used with the co-ordinating holders. Depending on how much paper you have in any given color or theme, these dividers will help you get to the ones you want without having to thumb through piles of paper



  • Verified Buyer

    Perfect occasion album (09 March 2015)

    great size and the binding is already beautifully done. Will be getting more of these.



  • Verified Buyer

    different size pad (09 March 2015)

    This paper is used in a project and they specified this size. Thick and interesting papers.

    Must Have Tool (24 January 2015)

    There are a few tools that you will go to over and over if you make cards, scrapbooks or mini albums, this is one of them. Makes a neater notch than trying to align a circle punch half way. This giives precise and equal notches every time.



  • Verified Buyer

    So versitile (30 October 2014)

    Extra 6x6 papers that match make for a lot of options.

    Fast Card Fix (04 October 2014)

    This folder is great for embossed cards in a moment's notice. Emboss on colored stock, adhere to white card base leaving a tiny margin and you are good to go. Words can also be cut apart and used.

    Use thes as Scrap book pages or put tabs on them and use to organize your little ones' photos and memorabilia.

    Substantial thickness and quality (04 February 2014)

    They cut well.



  • Verified Buyer

    Buffalo (17 December 2013)

    Had to have this.



  • not worth the money (27 November 2013)

    This is a tough to punch punch and it wastes paper. You need a palm on each side and give it a strong punch. A 3x4 is more easily accomplished with your trimmer, saves paper and if you want rounded corners, use a corner punch, seriously. This was a waste of money and takes up space.



  • Verified Buyer

    so easy (16 November 2013)

    Love these punches and this is so "in."



  • Verified Buyer

    easy use (16 November 2013)

    This has such an easy squeeze! Love their Squeeze punches.



  • Verified Buyer

    great for Xron sticker maker (09 September 2013)

    Hi, I saw this being used on a you tube video. The sticky residue in the open space of some letters, designs needs to be removed and this gets int there and balls up the sticky to be removed from the sticker you just made easily. I really don't have much use for the rub on wand but it comes with the glue eraser.



  • Verified Buyer

    must have alphas (19 May 2013)

  • Verified Buyer

    stunning papers (19 May 2013)

    Love these colors and illustrations.



  • Verified Buyer

    great (17 December 2012)

    this makes the difficult look, easy to get



  • Verified Buyer

    Love these (17 December 2012)

    Such a great easy shape to edge with and more. A lot packed into a little ergonomic tool.



  • Verified Buyer

    you need this (17 December 2012)

    I thought I could do without it, nope! It help release those teeny tiny die cut pieces that are impossible to get out of the die otherwise.



  • Verified Buyer

    could not download (17 December 2012)

    This was a disappointment. Usually companies send a link to the download and keep a copy of it on your order history. Fot this, you have to do other things that I couldn't figure out.



  • Verified Buyer

    many uses (21 November 2012)

    I have been wanting this die for a while because it has a lot of components that can be used in other ways. Done in coral colors, the branch can be under sea coral. The leaves can go on other trees, etc... have fun with this one!



  • Verified Buyer

    a must for the binder (16 November 2012)

    the binder that these go into does not come with a set, so you need these. They are standard three ring binder size and the 5 fit nicely into the binder ( separate purchase). I intend to get 1 binder for each of the major holidays that I have stamps for and an extra one for "other." The stamps are secure in the binder as they cling to these sheets.



  • Verified Buyer

    super storage for your unmounted stamps (16 November 2012)

    This is a great folder and I intend to get several more. They hold 5 pages ( additional purchase) that fill up fast if you have larger stamps. I want to get one for my Christmas unmounted stamps, one for the Halloween ones, etc.... I also was able to fit in one of the Dylusions sets that comes on it's own 3/4 page size. It fits on two of the plastic binder ring things. I don't think you'd get more than 1 extra sheet in the binder.



  • Verified Buyer

    arthritis/fibromyalsia issues? Get this one (16 November 2012)

    I have fibromyalsia and find the super jumbo tape runners too heavy in the hand to work with for any length of time. This size is perfect, lots of tape and light enough to be comfortable



  • Verified Buyer

    Great background set (16 November 2012)

    Really like the size of the motifs. Having the stamp and embossing folder is a bonus.



  • Verified Buyer

    This should be included in the revolving 48 slot holder. (05 November 2012)

    This item is needed to actually use the rotating ink pad holder. There is no mention of it in the description of the 48 back to back revolving holder. I found out about it later when the ink pads fall through to the middle. You cannot use the double without these inserts. If you buy the wall hung single, they can't fall through, and the inserts aren't needed. So they should be included in the double revolving free standing unit, even if they added the price in. Here is another snafu, these inserts are sold in sets of 24. The double would require 2 boxes of them to use the free standing item. I emailed them about this and have yet to hear from their customer service.



  • Verified Buyer

    great idea (21 October 2012)

    These are handy little things and the case forthem is a good one.



  • Verified Buyer

    useful storage (21 October 2012)

    This is a good solution to storage and they have a video that shows adding stickers to the lid with the color for easy identification. cool idea



  • Verified Buyer

    great company/product (21 October 2012)

    These are quality heavy weight and should look good for a long long time.



  • Verified Buyer

    useless and wobbly (21 October 2012)

    These were a big disappointment. They have 4 velcro small dots to attach to the side and they are not flush because of that. They are wobbly. Not all pens fit and on the swivel craft organizer 4 could be used. They don't tell enough about this company's products to help you make informed decisions.



  • Verified Buyer

    you have to buy $20 inserts or it doesn't work for ink pads (21 October 2012)

    What they do not tell you is that in order to use it with any shape ink pad, you have to buy additional inserts because the slots are way too deep and the ink pads fall through to the back and are nearly impossible to get out without tilting the whole thing. It would have been more honest if they sold the 48 adapters as part of the kit. The wording led me to believe that this was complete to go as is. I got the extra side pieces for pens and would not suggest those. If it is called, "The Best Craft Organizer", it should be complete and not need additional inserts which are sold in sets of 24 and this needs 48, so it is an extra $20 above.

    Winner collection (10 September 2012)

    This and the roses page from the Plumeria collection look stunning together.



  • Verified Buyer

    more Plumeria (10 September 2012)

    Love the colors and these roses are so pretty. I intend to cut them out as decorations for some of the other pages. The two side bars will also go on other pages, although it would be pretty left as is.



  • Verified Buyer

    Love this collection (10 September 2012)

    Wish I had the whole 12x12 pack.



  • Verified Buyer

    More of the Plumeria collection (10 September 2012)

    Love this whole collection.



  • Verified Buyer

    so interesting, the sun's up (10 September 2012)

    I imagine this with either of two of my projects: WWII Pacific theater photos, pilots beside their old fighter planes sort of thing. Add some of the gears and metal embellishments and it's a winner.
    My other project is a scrapbooking of my step-son's trip to China.
    A lot of the other pages are dark and feel heavy. This one will lighten it up.



  • Verified Buyer

    Give credit where credit is due (10 September 2012)

    Sometimes you have to let them know you made it.



  • Verified Buyer

    So pretty (10 September 2012)

    This whole line is so pretty. Wish I could have gotten the whole package with all the different pages and embellishments, etc...
    Colors are lovely and there is enough empty, but colored space to add photos.



  • Verified Buyer

    Love this pup (10 September 2012)

    With a few color changes and the addition of a Van Dyke beard, this could be an Airedale. I'll snip into the sides of the face to create his side beard and add the eye brows that are kind of like Andy Rooney's. If you know how hard it is to find Airedale stuff, this is a great find. As a generic puppy, it works as well. Cute!



  • Verified Buyer

    very pretty (06 September 2012)

    I got this to be the base paper for the page facing the Xmas tree in the more nostalgic paper. It also has that old time ornament, very simple and the background is also a bit hazy.



  • Verified Buyer

    nostalgic Christmas paper (06 September 2012)

    the effect of this paper is good for old pictures of Christmases long ago. It has a soft almost hazy effect like a memory.

  • Verified Buyer

    ski background (28 August 2012)

    love this for background



  • Verified Buyer

    journaling (28 August 2012)

    Love this as background, add a little journaling and lay a photo over parts of it and add more journaling under the off set photo is my plan.



  • Verified Buyer

    jazz up a background (28 August 2012)

    Love this. Use a little; use a lot. Possibilities are endless.



  • Verified Buyer

    great backgrounds (28 August 2012)

    This will create layers of texture. Love it.



  • Verified Buyer

    so many possibilities (28 August 2012)

    Some of these will be used with distress inks to create journaling lines that are not your usual black lines. The bubbles and grids are a great way to jazz things up with texture without the bumps.

    movie lovers (28 August 2012)

    This is a great stencil and I have friends who own theaters. I intend to use the openings to outline for smaller photos.

    China Chipboard embellishments (07 August 2012)

    Jon went to China in college and I have all the pictures. This set goes beyond the dragon and gong and makes the pages a bit more sophisticated. Love the map one!

    Not exactly sure what I will do with this, but I know I will have enough!



  • Verified Buyer

    lots of space (07 August 2012)

    Tired of cutting your paper to fit the cutter? This baby takes on the biggest paper.



  • Verified Buyer

    Shanghai (07 August 2012)

    Totally different feel from the rest of the China cities paper from this maker, but maybe that is the point. Not having gone there myself, this appears very modern and the change in color scheme helps set it apart from the other cities.



  • Verified Buyer

    Beijing (07 August 2012)

    Hard to find paper for specific foreign cities, here is Beijing, but this whole set does a great job and they co-ordinate so well.

  • Verified Buyer

    Airedales hard to find (07 August 2012)

    Airedales are hard to find in doggie merchandise, so I was thrilled to find this perfect chipboard Airedale. And, it's a boy! Just like my Heiko.I would love even larger ones or a die to cut with.



  • Lucky Red #2 (23 July 2012)

    Love this one and it will make a great 2 page spread in Jon's book.



  • Red is lucky (23 July 2012)

    Red is the Chinese lucky color and this will co-ordinate with the other red page for a stunning 2 page spread.



  • co-ordinates with The Wall page (23 July 2012)

    They look really good for a two page spread.



  • The Great Wall (23 July 2012)

    I have one of these in my classroom with a sign that points to the far end and says,"Toilet." The message is: Do you really have to go?" A bit of fun for older kids.

    Seriously, I will use this in Jon's scrapbook because he did go to the wall.



  • Jon's China trip (23 July 2012)

    This will also go into Jon's book and the lovely papers as well.



  • terrific tag (23 July 2012)

    This is for step-son, Jon's China trip he took as an undergrad. I want to surprise him with the scrapbook for Christmas. The tag is so nice I accidentally bought this one, although I already had this in my stash. It's so good, I am keeping it.



  • Had to have it (23 July 2012)

    This isn't an Airedale, but so cute Heiko won't mind a buddy in his scrapbook. So many people and doggies stop to sniff and chat that we refur (haha) to him as the mayor. This will add some journaling to a page in his chip book that has the letters of his name. So over the top.



  • great to match your scrapbook (23 July 2012)

    These are to use on my dog's scrapbooks. He's an Airedale and I'll use the 2nd lightest color to match him. The others are all good and can be used for a lot of ideas.



  • everything in its place (23 July 2012)

    This case holds the Crop-A-Dile and the grommets are a bonus in a variety of metal finishes so you'll have something for all your projects. You could even stash some more around the Crop-A-Dile, but the compartments keep all the varieties separate.
