  • Not my favorite Heat tool (12 September 2011)

    I ordered this heat tool b/c it had been recommend to me. I find it does not work well with embossing powder, I think because it does not blow very hard. I do use it to dry multimedia art but would not purchase it again as I prefer one tool that can meet all my heating needs. I do like the handle, it is a comfortable way to work.

    Great for Multi Media Inking (30 March 2011)

    Love the bright intense color of StazOn Jet Black. Color stays bright even after drying. Great for use in multi media when you need to use mod podge etc after the ink because it is not waterbased and does not smear or smudge! Love it!

    Must Have! (22 January 2011)

    These misters are sturdy, do not clog and are easy to fill, (both with water and with ink). The lid is easy to remove and the mist is very fine. I am most happy to own these!!!

    Great addition! (22 January 2011)

    The Mini Mister Block is a great addition to my craft space. Block is very solid and misters are stury. The head does not clog. Easy to fill and the top is of adequate circumference to add ink/pearlex etc without making a mess. A must have!! OH, I do wish the misters were not purchased seperately.

    Great way to store Nestabilities!! (07 December 2010)

    I bought six of these 8X10 magnetic sheets to store my Nestabilities dies, it is the perfect solution. I also purchased the "notebook" that holds these pages. I am able to get 4 to 6 sets of dies per page, they fit "nested" together and the pages hold them so that they do not move when turning pages. Of items I have purchased recently ( and there are several!!) this is my favorite!

    Unique addition to the crafting community (13 November 2010)

    This little "newspaper" is such fun...both for the articles and for the fact that after you read it you can use it in layouts and cards....then you have newsprint that is archival safe! Great idea.

    Lovely rich colors and images (13 November 2010)

    Graphic45's Christmas Past line is full of lovely colors and vintage images. I love the Victorian greetings and appreciate that the flip side is not more images so that you do not feel that you can not use every image.

    Consistent quailty (13 November 2010)

    I love this paper line and the trading cards extend the versatility and open avenues to create many lovely items!! Love the images!

    Warm colors and images (13 November 2010)

    This sweet paper mixes well with other current wonderful papers so you do not have to stay within one brand to create beautiful cards or altered items. The warmth and depth of the color along with the vintage sweetness of the images is very pleasing!! I will probably buy more before the season is over!

    Not a standout. (12 February 2010)

    I purchased this edge punch basically because I like MS punches however, the diamonds on this punch are small and ill defined. I don't think it will be a "go to" punch!

    Nice and "sticky" (12 February 2010)

    The One touch glue stick is nice and sticky....holds very well. The only problem is that it is very broad, it can not be your primary glue for that reason. If both ends had glue then one could be narrow. Otherwise...good stuff!!!

    A bit disappointed (12 February 2010)

    I ordered this caddy to store all my stickles but found that many of my bottles are too large for the caddy. I did not realize that stickles even came in different sizes!! I am using it but would have been happier had it accommodated both size bottle.

    Basic Grey is true to form! (12 February 2010)

    Another fun paper pack from Basic Grey. Great for scrapbooking kids or for cards. Perfect!

    Added Pazzaz with a punch (08 February 2010)

    I purchased this punch as a set with the corner punch. strongly recommend practicing on the same size scrap paper prior to punching your real product. I chopped off the loops adjacent to the corner multiple times before I finally got it right. The guides are very helpful but when using the edge punch close to the corner (which you are told to punch first) determining which looop is important. The punched card/or LO is very pretty.

    Added sparkle (08 February 2010)

    This was my first purchase of glimmer mist. I felt rather like I was stumbling around in the dark b/c instructions are lacking; however, the lack of instructions is the only real problem! Application is easy and the effect add a lot to your LO or card. You can just add some shine or achieve an aged effect. I would suggest that you spray like you do with spray paint; move across your page while you spray to avoid puddling and place the object to be "glimmered" in a shallow box etc to avoid overspray.

    A good product made better (31 January 2010)

    The upper tier extension kit provides a stable opportunity to store and display a lot more product. I have been able to place all of the embellishemts on the base unit with extension plus a mini unit. I love it and would buy it again! I was pleased that the extension is adequate for 12 inch items and that it is not at risk of falling over!

    Best adhesive applicator yet!! (27 January 2010)

    I have tried numerous adhesives and adhesive applicators; this is the best yet!! It is easy to load, applies smoothly, is easy to handle and holds 36 yards of adhesive. I love the 1/4 inch line of adhesive and the ease of application. Very Happy with this product.

    Great organizing tool! (27 January 2010)

    I have always had trouble organizing my embellishments and have tried storing them in drawers, and baskets etc without much success. This product has allowed me to free up floor space and get my embellishments organized in a manner that allows me to see them and therefor use them. I now have the base unit with the upper tier and 2 mini units. Love it!

    Milled Lavendar Distressing Powder (05 March 2009)

    Lovely shade of Lavendar with hint of grey. Creates a baeutiful addition to cards or scrap pages. I used it on a birthday card on which I embossed several flowers. It turned out great. Really like the quailty of Tim Holtz powders.

    Fun opportunity to get your pictures out-there! (08 August 2008)

    I bought this product to give as Christmas gifts to the various grandparents.....mine and his as well as Great Grandparents. Sturdy cardboard assembles easily and is so cute when completed. I know it will thrill as a gift. Highly recommend!

    Bright abstracts. (08 August 2008)

    I like to bright colors and use of abstractions. I do not like the description "cardstock" it is not cardstock by my defination. This is a fairly lightweight paper in beautiful colors, easily adapted to many paper craft uses.

    Fun product for gift giving! (08 August 2008)

    This sturdy box, fits very snugly and it appears that it will hold up for a long time. Easy to cover with your favorite paper. I purchased to use for Christmas gifts for my early teen nieces to "go with" their room, ended up giving to my dil who is a first grade teacher, decorated to match her room theme. Fun to make something quick to give to someone.

    Real Tacky!! (08 August 2008)

    I am excited to have this adhesive runner. I have used it on fabric, paper, chipboard, wood and plastic. I find its tackiness to be superior. The one drawback is that it is difficult to use on narrow items. I do have the 3/4 inch adhesive and recognize that there is a 1/2 inch adhesive available. I do not find this to be difficult to use despite the large size.

    Will continue to use and expect great things!
