    INKredible! (21 February 2008)

    These inks are so versatile! I have used these on clear stamps; and not only do they look great, but they clean off incredibly easily! These inks also work great along the edges of your paper for a little distressing, or just an extra splash of color. If that cardstock is looking a little too plain, daub some ink onto it for a subtler, worn look. Use them to decorate your chipboard accents, too. They come in a variety of useful colors. I highly recommend these for both the beginner and master stampers among us!

    A CUT above the rest! (14 April 2008)

    This tool works better than the other circle cutters I have tried. From one-inch to six, you will be able to create endless amounts of circles for your crafting projects. I have used this tool to crop my photos; create circle embellishments, both solid and hollow; and even mat the circles themselves for a layered look. This tool will not only help you CUT circles, but also comes with a piece designed to help you DRAW circles. The possibilities are infinite!

    TIPS: It recommends cutting on glass, so I use a glass cutting board that I had lying around. Also, for best results, you may want to tape down your paper to avoid movement during cutting.

    You will use up every one! (21 April 2008)

    This was one of my first flower purchases, and to this day it is still my favorite! This mixed set is just perfect--one or more of the colors are bound to match any scrapbook project. Unlike other variety packs where there are often leftovers you will never use, you will use up every one of these useful colors. Layer them for a more dimensional effect. Fill their insides with brads, eyelets, buttons, smaller flowers and more! I absolutely recommend these 100%!

    A POP-ular Choice! (22 April 2008)

    These add just the right POP to any project! I find the 1/8Ē thick strips are perfect for any occasion. I have used these on scrapbook pages, cards and even altered items around my home. They will add dimension to your scrapbooks without stretching your pages too wide. They also keep your cardís thickness below the standard maximum, so you wonít need extra postage. I highly recommend this to scrapbookers of all levels!

    A CUT above the rest! (23 April 2008)

    Some trimmers donít cut a straight line because the material that the blade runs along is too flexibleÖbut NOT this one! Not only does it cut perfectly straight, but it even has a magnet to keep it down while you are cutting. Also unlike other trimmers, this one has a grid from top to bottom for easy measuring. In addition, a ruler swings out to measure a maximum of 15 inches wide, and can fold right back in. I have absolutely no complaints with this trimmer, and recommend it to scrapbookers of all skill levels!
