  • Perfect for Page Planning! (01 May 2010)

    As a busy mom I tend to scrap in between my daughter's activities. These files are great for that! In the evening after she has gone to bed I take time to set up what I call my scrap packs. Into each of these files I put pictures, papers, and embellishments and then when I have a chance that week I pull out a file and start assembling that page. If I get interruped everything goes back in until the next chance I get to scrap. Definately not the traditional way to use these, but a perfect solution for me!

  • LOVE IT!!!! (25 June 2009)

    I can't say enough good things about this mat. I am soooo in love with it! It is so you so much room to line things up and cut. The ruler is very sturdy, not flimsy like several other metal rulers I have bought. The absolute best part of this mat is the little magnets that come with it! I love the fact that I can be working on a LO...have all the pieces placed, and then walk away. With little ones in the house this is the perfect solution....I have walked back to a project to find it jumbled too many times. And they are perfect for holding down rub-ons and stencils.

    A Must Have! (25 June 2009)

    I have always loved the look of stitching on cards and layouts, but after one attempt using a needle to punch holes, I swore I would never do it again...that is until I got this piercing tool! The nice sturdy handle makes it so easy to use. And I love that it comes in a plastic container with a lid...this way I can keep it stored safely away from my lil ones curious hands. I use it not only to mark holes for sewing, but also for using brads and fibers. I am just sure to place a mat (I use and old mousepad) under whatever I am piercing so I don't put a hole in my desk :)

    My favorite color! (14 October 2008)

    Diamonds really are a girls best friend when it comes to Diamond Stickles! So clear and full of sparkle, they make everything you use them on pop. I love the fine tip of the easy to make lines or just small dots here and there. Definately a must have!

    Perfect! (14 October 2008)

    I used to be intimidated by journaling, especially in smaller spaces, but not anymore. These have really helped me realize that you can put journaling anywhere on a page. Love these for making small notes or even to add several journal spots to one layout. I also love that these are so simple, yet easy to embellish with rub-ons, stickers, stickles, flowers, etc.

    Multiple Uses! (14 October 2008)

    I absolutely LOVE these chipboard squares! I have covered them in paper, stamped them, and painted them. I have used them not only for embelishments for my pages, but as guides for making my photos the perfect square. I don't have a square punch just yet, so I trace around one of these!

  • Great First Flower Purchase! (23 June 2008)

    Deciding to add flowers to my layouts was a given...deciding which flowers to buy was a bit more difficult, but I am so happy that I chose these Bazzill Bitty Blossoms! I am amazed at all of the beautiful colors and just how real they look...not flat like the paper flowers I have used before. The size is also versatile...they are great alone or stacked with other larger flowers. Absolute great product that I will definately be buying again!

  • Perfect Score Everytime (14 June 2008)

    I love this blade! It is a wonderful addition to my Cutterpede. The blade easily loads into the trimmer, and is so easy to use. Gone are my days of crooked card folds!

    How Did I Live Without This??? (14 June 2008)

    Having recently jumped back into scrapping I decided that it was time to move up with the times and leave my ruler and scissors behind. I chose to purchase the Cutterpede trimmer based on the portability as well as my satisfaction with other EK Success products...and I am so happy that I did. I have the pink version of this cutter (yeah!) and I am amazed at just how much faster I complete layouts and cards. The 1/4 inch measuring grid on the base is wonderful for cutting small items and the 15 inch arm is great for larger ones. Haven't had a problem cutting straight with it yet!

    So Happy!!! (16 March 2008)

    Had a Blues Clues birthday party for my 2 yo daughter last September and after being unsuccessful finding this paper, I was thrilled to find it here. I signed up for the wait list and ordered it as soon as I got the e-mail that it was in stock. The paper has bright vibrant colors and looks just like the show. Very much worth the wait. Thanks!!!

    Makes life easier!!! (10 March 2008)

    I am so in love with my new Xyron 250!!! I have used it for my scrapbook pages, cards, and I recently made my daughter some potty training reward stickers. I used to hate the hassle of covering raw chipboard, but the Xyron completely eliminates the mess. I also find that I am not trying to trim adhesive squares or dots to fit smaller or intricate pieces...such a timesaver!
