    Cute and easy to use (16 September 2011)

    These chipboard elements are so cute and easy to use. They coordinate perfectly with the rest of the Baby Mine collection of course, but can definitely be used on other projects. I love that these elements pop out of the chipboard and still have a backer on them (not exposing adhesive right away). It allows you to move the element around the page before you stick which is great for indecisive scrappers like me. :) My only complaint is that I wish the set was bigger because I really like it!

    Lovely Letters (16 September 2011)

    I am in love with these chipboard letters!! I really like to lay out my letters before I stick them, and this set allows me to do that as the letters pop out of the backer with the adhesive still covered! I've never had an alpha set that is made this way and I am really enjoying it! They coordinate perfectly with the Baby Mine collection, but are also neutral enough to use them on other projects that aren't baby-related.

    Adorable Baby Line!! (16 September 2011)

    This line is so cute and versatile. I am currently using to make a baby boy album for a friend, but you could easily do a girl album or pages with this kit as well. The little monkeys are the cutest!! This kit also comes with a LOT of paper and goodies: chippie stickers, rub-ons, transparancies!

    I love Cropper Hoppers! (09 June 2011)

    I have the 12x12 and 8.5x11 paper organizers, so I had to get the 8x8 to get the rest of my papers sorted. I really like this vertical storage. These are incredibly sturdy - I've had the 12x12 paper holder for years! I also really like that they're translucent, I can see all my papers at a glance!

    Cool Mixed Alphas (24 May 2011)

    I have always had trouble mixing different alphas to get that cool vintage/grunge effect on my pages, but this alpha set makes it easy! I really like all the different fonts and sizes that come in this set. And, as usual with any Tim Holtz Grunge product, they take inks and mists like a dream, so it is easy to coordinate with any project. If you're stuck in a titling rut, I recommend this alpha set - it will get you thinking outside the box in no time!

    Awesome purple paint!!! (24 May 2011)

    I only have a few colors of Glimmer Glam and this is my favorite! It's a beautiful deep purple with two colors of glitter in it - purple and silver. It's so pretty when it catches the light! I really like using this to paint chipboard pieces and I've also used it on lighter material like the Fancy Pants coffee filter doilies. It looks great on everything! If you love bling, you will love Glimmer Glam!!

    Lovely Lavender! (19 April 2011)

    I think this is my new favorite color of Stickles! I really like that it's a light color but with a ton of sparkle!



  • Verified Buyer

    Fun to play with! (15 January 2011)

    I love these clear acrylic tiles. They are lightweight, come in different sizes and shapes, and are really versatile. I like adhering patterned paper to them for custom embellishments. You can also color them with alcohol inks for a cool stained glass effect.

    Pretty - not as blue as expected (14 January 2011)

    This is a really pretty mist, but it is more silver with a touch of blue. I own a bunch of Glimmer Mist, which is very sheer - this is not sheer. It offers more coverage per spray than the Glimmer Mist and has a different sparkle. It's pretty and I have already used it on several layouts. I would like to try some other colors!

    Beautiful Flourish (14 January 2011)

    I love all of Tim's masks, and I have 2 sets of the mini masks. I love that this one is HUGE!!! I like that I can use a portion of it on a smaller page or card or the entire thing (if I want) on a 12x12 layout. It's also fun to mix and match the masks to get different designs. I highly recommend this if you are already a TH fan. :)



  • Verified Buyer

    Great color - really sparkly! (10 January 2011)

    I love this color! I can't wait to use it on the new resist paper I just got! :) It is a very sheer gray with a lot of dazzle.

    Gorgeous Scrolls! (28 September 2010)

    I love Maya Road Chipboard!! I have several sets and I am now in love with this one as well. I just love the idea of having something you can make any color you want - spray, ink, whatever! They are of a decent size, so they look just as nice on a 12 x 12 page as they do on an 8x8. And the package is PACKED! You get a lot of chipboard!



  • Verified Buyer

    Cute Embellishment! (28 September 2010)

    I am just getting into TH products and I really like these! You get a LOT of them in one book so you will get plenty of use out of them. They look great as is, but are also really easy to distress for a different look.

    Pretty but NOT 12 x 12! (28 September 2010)

    I bought this album for a gift book I'm making for a friend. I had already made about 1/2 the pages before I purchased an album. Well, I went to put my layouts in it, and the page protectors are SMALLER than 12 x 12! I was not happy that I had to cut a quarter inch off the sides of all the layouts I had completed in order to fit them into the book. So, just keep that in mind if you are going to purchase this album. The cover is a very nice fabric and it's a gorgeous blue, I'm just disappointed that it wasn't what was advertised.

    Really Pretty Stack! (28 September 2010)

    I love the Linen Closet collection. All the colors are very soft and pretty. This stack coordinates perfectly with the patterned paper stack - great for creating an entire album!

    Black Soot - The New Black! (16 August 2010)

    I am loving this ink! I want - no NEED - every single color!



  • Verified Buyer

    Gorgeous Blue (16 August 2010)

    I really like this color. It matches perfectly with the "Patina" colored Glimmer Mist! I especially like that these inks react with water, so spraying after inking gives a cool effect.



  • Verified Buyer

    I love Distress Inks! (16 August 2010)

    Gorgeous color, perfect for distressing and/or stamping and embossing. I'm doing an entire album using muted blues and greens, so this is perfect!



  • Verified Buyer

    Pretty Color (16 August 2010)

    This is a very pretty color, it's a bit more red than I thought it would be, though. But it does look like a latte! :)



  • Verified Buyer

    Great minis! (16 August 2010)

    This alphabet set is really cute! I love that I can customize the color by inking or spraying to go with any page or theme I want. And the font is adorable.



  • Verified Buyer

    Neat little tool (16 August 2010)

    I've just gotten into distressing so I purchased this little tool and it's really cool! Depending on how hard you press and the material, you can lightly distress or tear it to shreds! It's definitely something you have to play around with, but it's fun! Just be prepared for all the paper dust.



  • Verified Buyer

    I love the E Line! (16 August 2010)

    Really gorgeous and best of all - really affordable! I love the different blues that came in this set of crystals and pearls. They make beautiful flower centers for the E-Line flowers and great little accents for anywhere on a page.



  • Verified Buyer

    Not what I expected (16 August 2010)

    This embossing powder works very differently from regular embossing powder, I'm not sure how much I really like it. The color is nice and matches the TH inks perfectly, but it's not my cup of tea.



  • Verified Buyer

    I love Distress Inks!! (16 August 2010)

    I feel like I have finally found my favorite ink! It's great for distressing and also just for stamping. The Stormy Sky color is very close to Faded Jeans, but it's got a little more gray in it. Really pretty color!



  • Verified Buyer

    I love this color (14 July 2010)

    This is a great purpley-blue color. It's definitely more purple than I thought it would be.



  • Verified Buyer

    Beautiful Brown! (14 July 2010)

    This mist is great! The color is gorgeous, and it has a great shimmer.



  • Verified Buyer

    Wonderful to work with (14 July 2010)

    I'm glad I took the plunge and got the grunge! LOL So easy to work with, fun to ink and spray and distress. My only issue is the pieces are really small, and they're a bit of a pain to remove from the sheets. I ripped a letter trying to remove it. And Tim said it wasn't possible - HA! ;)



  • Verified Buyer

    Gorgeous!! (14 July 2010)

    I love this stack! All the papers are so pretty! They make putting together pages easy - so pretty that minimal embellishments are required. :)



  • Verified Buyer

    Great mat stack (14 July 2010)

    This stack coordinates perfectly with the 12 x 12 Linen Closet stack, and I love the metallics that came in it. So pretty! The plain cardstock is textured, which makes for cool effects when inked or sprayed.



  • Verified Buyer

    Great color (04 May 2010)

    I love Smooch spritz! The colors are gorgeous. However, I own 3 of them, and 2 of the 3 clogged within the first couple days of using them. If anyone has any unclogging tips - I'll take them! :)



  • Verified Buyer

    CUTE! (04 May 2010)

    This is the first chipboard set I've purchased and I love it! The shapes are cute, and they are easy to color with inks and sprays.

    These are great! (04 May 2010)

    I love how small these are, they are perfect for gemstones or anything else really tiny. And they're really sturdy!



  • Verified Buyer

    Love this pp (25 February 2010)

    I wish I had gotten 2 sheets! This was perfect for the moving themed page I had planned - I didn't need to plan a title since it already came on the page. :)



  • Verified Buyer

    Great PP! (25 February 2010)

    I love how heavy this paper is and the flocking adds nice texture to your project. It produces great pages without needing tons of embellishment.



  • Verified Buyer

    Versatile and fun to use (25 February 2010)

    I love these because you can either use an entire strip, or use the cute little bats and pumpkins individually for smaller projects. Super cute!



  • Verified Buyer

    Great templates (25 February 2010)

    I just finished a project on which I used this template multiple times. They are so easy to use and are great for lining up anything little from gems to eyelets. Even Stickles dots!



  • Verified Buyer

    Easy to work with and beautiful (25 February 2010)

    These gems are very easy to work with. They release off the acetate really easily, but they stick to your project really well. They are also SUPER sparkly!



  • Verified Buyer

    So sparkly!! (25 February 2010)

    I love this mist! The effect it has is gorgeous, especially on black card stock. I want all the colors!



  • Verified Buyer

    I love this machine! It's so easy and so much fun to use. I can't wait to get more folders for it!

    Great Adhesive (03 January 2010)

    I love Mod Podge for mini albums and altered projects. It holds and seals really nicely and the matte finish is very smooth.

    Cute PP (03 January 2010)

    I used this pp in my Halloween mini album, and I've since ordered more. It coordinates beautifully with the Spooktastic and Frightful collections.

    Better than the roll (03 January 2010)

    I love that Zots now come individually. They are so much easier to work with.

    Gorgeous Mini Album (08 September 2009)

    This is the first mini album I've ever bought, and I love it! The different edges make it a lot of fun and give a really cool effect to the closed book.

    Great Orange Color (08 September 2009)

    Such a vibrant orange - even on black cardstock!



  • Verified Buyer

    Great Value (08 September 2009)

    I love that this is double sided--I bought 2 so I could use both sides in my Halloween mini album. They look great with any of the Spooktastic Collection papers!



  • Verified Buyer

    Great Paper (08 September 2009)

    Love this patterned paper! Great for a background on any Halloween layout!



  • Verified Buyer

    I love Stickles! (30 July 2009)

    This is my most used color as of late, I have 2 bottles! Adds the perfect amount of sparkle to anything.



  • Verified Buyer

    So much to use! (30 July 2009)

    I love this bucket and I think I'm going to buy the Bucket Of Magic to help scrap my Disney trip! I have used elements from this little kit on 5 different layouts already. I love the flocked brads and felt flowers! :)



  • Verified Buyer

    Easy to work with and great results! (30 July 2009)

    This was my first transparency purchase and now I'm hooked! I love the look these frames give to a page, and they're easy to attach with vellum adhesive.

    Gorgeous paper! (30 July 2009)

    This paper is so pretty and simple! I'm glad I ordered 2 sheets. :)

    Great stamp storage (07 July 2009)

    I was able to get all my clear stamps out of a drawer with these! I can't wait to get the binder they fit in. :)



  • Verified Buyer

    Gorgeous flowers! (07 July 2009)

    These are beautifully detailed and look so good with the coordinating MM papers. I received them a couple days ago and they are already on 2 layouts! :)



  • Verified Buyer

    TOO GLITTERY (07 July 2009)

    I never thought I would say it....but these are TOO glittery! And I LOVE glitter! But these have so much on them that you can hardly see the pattern on any of the pieces. Also, there are a couple tags with words on them, but you can't really read the words due to all the glitter. There are a few pieces in the package that are nice, but it's not worth buying a whole pack of them for a few pieces.



  • Verified Buyer

    These are great! (07 July 2009)

    These are beautiful and go wonderfully with all the wedding pages I'm currently working on. The big pearls make great flower centers.



  • Verified Buyer

    Beautiful coordinating papers! (26 June 2009)

    I love these papers! They make putting together an 8 x 8 wedding album easy. I also purchased the 6 x 6 pack that has the same patterns, and it's fun to layer the different patterns and textures.



  • Verified Buyer

    I'm officially addicted to Stickles! (26 June 2009)

    I love using Stickles around the borders of my photos to highlight them. Well, I love using them on anything, really. LOL

    I love my CRICUT!! (26 June 2009)

    I don't know what else to say other than this is the best craft investment I've ever made. I use it almost every singe time I scrap or make cards. I don't know how I scrapped without one! :)



  • Verified Buyer

    Great for sticker remains (26 June 2009)

    I love the zip and flip to keep all the left overs from all my open stickers.



  • Verified Buyer

    Great Storage (17 October 2008)

    I love the Zip and Flip! It fits right into my PSB and holds all my little odds and ends.

    Craft Room Must-have (30 August 2008)

    I love this cart! It was pretty easy to put together, and it holds a LOT. I like that I can hang other rail system accessories from it.



  • Verified Buyer

    Great for cardmaking supplies (30 August 2008)

    I have this hanging on my rolling cart holding all my blank cards and small cardstock sheets. Very convenient!

  • Verified Buyer

    My favorite rail accessory (30 June 2008)

    The over the rail shelf has to be my favorite accessory to this rail system. The shelf is very sturdy, and it's pretty wide, it can hold a lot! I have all my adhesives on one with the Inspiration Grid hanging below it. I love that it maximizes the use of the rail.



  • Verified Buyer

    Good for storage and inspiration (30 June 2008)

    This grid is great! I like that I can clip pictures to it and basically plan pages out right up on the wall. The clips are good for holding packets of stickers or embellishments. The only thing I didn't like was getting it open, there were little plastic ties on everything.



  • Verified Buyer

    Not just for paper trimmers (30 June 2008)

    I have 2 of these paper trimmer holders, one I use for my paper trimmers, and I have some craft magazines in the other one.



  • Verified Buyer

    Great Accessory (30 June 2008)

    This ribbon holder works great and is an attractive accessory to the rail system. I used to keep all my ribbon in a drawer or a scrap bag, but this puts all my ribbon right in front of me, and untangled!! I like that you can put any width of ribbon onto the holder as well. Great product!



  • Verified Buyer

    The Rail System ROCKS (30 June 2008)

    I love this shelf. It holds all my stamps and pads (I'm a new stamper) and all my chalks and blending tools. It's nice to have everything in sight and within reach instead of in a drawer that I have to dig through.



  • Verified Buyer

    I love this system!! (30 June 2008)

    The rail system ROCKS!! The rails were really easy to install and the system looks really good in my scrap room. Everything I need is at my fingertips--I love it! :)
