    Great script stencil (08 October 2023)

    I have a script background stamp, but had really been wanting a script stencil as well, so I'm really glad I spotted this one on the SBC site. The stencil is cut very nicely and gives great results when ink blending through it which is exactly what I would expect from a Hero Arts product since they are a quality brand. I haven't tried it with any paste mediums yet, but I'm sure it would be fine for that as well. I would recommend cleaning it immediately (or putting it in water to soak) if you use a paste with it. Since it's such a finely detailed stencil, you definitely wouldn't want any of the paste drying in those tiny nooks and crannies. One of the things I like most is that it definitely gives the look of script handwriting without being actual words so it doesn't distract from the focal point of the project.

    Beautiful Autumn Die (08 October 2023)

    I received this die recently when it was offered as a free with purchase promotion. It's a really lovely die set and cuts beautifully in both my Spellbinders Platinum 6 manual die cutting machine as well as in my Anna Griffin Empress electric die cutting machine. Since it has both fall foliage as well as holly leaves and pine boughs, it's a perfect die for creating Autumn cards, but winter/holiday cards as well.

    So handy in the craft room! (08 October 2023)

    I've only had these trays for a few days, but they've already become a "go to" supply in my craft room. I can't even tell you how many times I've lost little die cuts and such on my desk while crafting, but that problem has been solved! Now I can just keep all of my die cuts in the tray until I'm ready to assemble my card. They're a really nice size without being too big, but will still hold quite a bit, too! Thanks for another awesome tool, SBC!!

    Love this handy little gadget! (08 October 2023)

    I received the 2-pack of these lifters during a recent free with purchase promo from SBC. I have to say, I wasn't necessarily expecting that much, but these little things have amazed me. They work so well for removing not just liners from double-sided adhesive and foam tape, but also for finding lifting the end of packing tape (which can be almost impossible!) as well as removing stickers off things. I liked them so much, I ended up buying more of them to use as stocking stuffers for my crafty friends for the upcoming holidays.

    Love the Platinum 6! (09 July 2019)

    I've used a few different brands of manual die cutting machines over the years. I started with the Cuttlebug years ago then switched over to the Big Shot. While I preferred the cutting of the Big Shot, I really missed the compact design of the Cuttlebug. I recently decided to give the Platinum 6 machine a try since it also features a fold up design making it more compact for storage. I'm so glad I did because this machine cuts beautifully! I love that they also include the embossing plate and mat with the machine. Those were always an extra purchase with the machines I've purchased in the past. I look forward to using this machine for many years to come.

    A Perfect All-Around Black (08 July 2019)

    I love the Midnight ink from Catherine Pooler Designs! Not only does it stamp beautifully crisp black images and sentiments, it's also a permanent archival ink which means I can be used for watercolor. Not only that, it's also alcohol marker friendly!

    If You Love Mint, Look No Further! (08 July 2019)

    I have the entire collection of Catherine Pooler inks, but this one is right up there as one of my absolute favorites. It's the absolute perfect mint green. While it's a soft color, it's bright enough to hold its own even when paired with bolder colors.

    A Perfect Pastel Chartreuse (08 July 2019)

    I love chartreuse greens and this is an absolutely perfect pastel version of chartreuse! Depending on the other colors used with it, it can easily shift more toward the yellow side or more toward the green side. If you pair it with oranges and purples, it's perfection for Halloween projects!

    My Go To Blue Ink (08 July 2019)

    I have several blue inks in my collection, but this is definitely my "go to" blue ink. It works well for a baby blue, but is still bright enough to work for lots of other things, too. I almost always use it as my base layer blue when creating ink blended skies for scene cards. It's perfect!

    The Perfect Pink (08 July 2019)

    CP inks are absolutely AMAZING! I love how juicy the ink pads are because it makes inking my stamps so easy. They're also great for techniques like ink blending, ink smooshing, direct to paper inking, etc. and are water reactive.

    AMAZING Patterned Paper (08 July 2019)

    I love Catherine Pooler Designs patterned paper. Unlike many other patterned papers, Catherine's are actually 80 lb. cardstock. This means you can easily use them not only for decorating a card, but for creating technique pieces as well. I love these fun summer-themed prints, too. I'm a sucker for plaids, stripes, and polka dots, and this pack has them all!

    Stunning Pastel Sequin Mix (08 July 2019)

    I'm completely smitten with this gorgeous sequin mix. While the colors are pastel, they're still bright enough to shine through on any project. They were the perfect choice for the pastel shaker card I created!

    Brush Lettering without Effort! (08 July 2019)

    If you love the look of brush lettering on a card, but (like me) aren't very good at it, this die is the perfect solution! I also love the versatility of this celebrate die since it could be used for a variety of occasions -- birthday, anniversary, wedding, graduation, retirement, etc.

    Awesome Coordinating Dies! (08 July 2019)

    I absolutely hate fussy cutting, so I almost always purchase coordinating dies when they're available. I have lots of coordinating dies from Catherine Pooler Designs. They quality is awesome and they cut beautifully! If you're purchasing the I Scream, You Scream stamp set, I highly recommend picking up these coordinating dies as well. You won't regret it!

    We All Scream for Ice Cream! (08 July 2019)

    As soon as I saw the adorable ice cream truck in this stamp set, I was hooked! Eating ice cream is one of my favorite things about summer, so this stamp set is absolutely perfect for creating fun summer themed cards. The images are so much fun to color, too!

    Awesome basic sentiments (03 July 2019)

    This is such an awesome little stamp set filled with great basic sentiments. I definitely think I'll be reaching for this set over and over again as I'm creating.
