    Wow, even better than expected! (29 February 2016)

    I have had a Big Shot for at least a couple years and love it but I wanted a machine that could use the wider dies and also have a bigger footprint where I could make multiple cuts. I expected the Big Shot Plus to weigh more, but it feels lighter, or at least it isn't any heavier than the regular Big Shot, so I am very pleased with that. I am also happy the wider footprint has created the unit to be more stable so I don't have to hold the top handle and can use my free hand to guide the plates in so there is no side to side wobble like I sometimes get with the Big Shot. I also love the platform where I don't fold it to the tab number I need but instead use the independent pieces to create my sandwich. This allows me to use the BS Plus in a smaller area! The regular BS platform when folded out takes up an additional 12 inches and that is a huge problem when I am attending crops where space is premium.

    warm and cozy (16 December 2014)

    This paper collection lives up to the name warm and cozy. It has great graphics that remind me of living on the farm with a vintage country feel. I just love the "sweater" paper. Lots of great shades from ivory to a dark tan with a vintage green and red and what I thought online was navy is actually a charcoal black that gives the impression of a vintage black. This ties to the Christmastime collection really well and both work well with each other.

    Gorgeous paper collection (02 September 2014)

    The graphics on this collection are vintage and beach theme, two of my favorite themes. I have made several projects and this is my fourth set of 12x12 and 8x8 sets! This is my first Graphic 45 collection that I have come back for four servings of, but each time I turn around, there is another item I want to make with these papers. The most recent I bought are going to be greeting cards, something I have not done before with Graphic 45 papers. I made a Jim the Gentleman Crafter project using these papers, a Kathy Orta project and some wall decor for my newly acquired craft room. I cannot seem to get enough of this set. Scrapbook.com carries these papers long after they are gone from the stores thankfully!

    Quality paper (19 January 2014)

    I am completely addicted to Kathy Orta projects and fell in love with this paper collection. Scrapbook.com is a fantastic resource to find papers I can't get at a LSS. The quality of the paper is great, sturdy and will stand up to lots of handling when turning pages. I am making the Christmas stocking with mini album and these papers finalized everything I need to get started. Photos are ready, now I just need to assemble the album and stocking. The turnaround on orders from Scrapbook.com is the best! I got these papers way before my crop. Definitely love the patterns and quality of this collection.
