    cute little shape (02 April 2017)

    this small, but thick originals die is great. echo park always has tasteful designs. i am going to use it to make embellishments for my pocket page scrapbooking projects. this die works in the sizzix sophisticut (purse-shaped manual die-cutting machine). however that fact is not mentioned in the description. bonus!

    great basic shapes (02 April 2017)

    this die makes great arrows for . . . anything you need arrows for! i got it for use in pocket scrapbooking to lead your eye from the journal card info to the correct picture. this also works in the sizzix sophisticut (purse-shaped die cutting machine) which is not mentioned in the description. bonus!

    necessary tools, if you have border strip sizzlit dies (02 April 2017)

    these cutting pads are great when working with border strip dies. they will also work with the sizzix sophisticut (purse-shaped manual die cutting machine) with the addition of the extended spacer platform (discontinued, but available in the usual secondary markets). the package does not mention that they will work with the sophisticut, but it does.

    cute little embellishments (02 April 2017)

    these will be great on vacation scrapbook pages for my upcoming trip to hawaii. imagine if someone took actual drink umbrellas, shrunk them down to half-size, then cut them into thirds, flattened them, and made them into embellishments. the materials used are wood, decorative tissue paper, and a little bit of white paint, just like the real thing. they lay pretty flat, so they won't add a lot of bulk. fun!

    subtle christmas design (02 April 2017)

    this tape is lovely and and understated (in a good way). it would be perfect for sealing christmas card envelopes, or anywhere you would like a tasteful holiday look. the design reminds me of the art of tasha tudor (children's book author/illustrator)

    loaded with glitter! (02 April 2017)

    these are nice stickers. they have a lot of visible circle-shaped glitter "flakes" that add dimension while not being too bulky.

    perfect for mini-albums (01 September 2016)

    this handy pack will allow me to add more pictures to the mini wedding album i am making for my brother and his wife.

    glossy cardstock (01 September 2016)

    i love both sides of this design. the yardstick has a glossy finish. additionally, the yardstick has a white core, which might bother some people. i plan to knock down the visible white core with a navy marker.

    fun dividers! (01 September 2016)

    these are sturdy dividers in fun designs. the navy blue design is my favorite. i got the carpe diem planner divider clear label set, and the labels look nice on these dividers. however, the clear labels are a bit hard to read on the navy divider. i bought a set of reset girl dividers, and alternated them with these, which worked well.

    lovely, high-quality planner (01 September 2016)

    this is my first planner, and i am using it to wrangle all of my lists, ideas, sketches for home improvement, project life page planning graphs, and other fun bits and pieces. the color is a nice peachy-pink. i had wanted a dark pink carpe diem planner, and it has been retired. this is a nice alternative, and looks great on my craft desk. the hardware is silver, which is fine by me.

    cute cut-aparts (01 September 2016)

    this is a cute set of cut-aparts. my favorite is the one partially pictured in the top left corner. the left side says "top-notch" on it and has a multicolored triangle background, and the right side (above the girls/women) has a blank white banner to write a short title or other identifying info with a stitched background. it can be used as one 4 x 4 card, or two 2 x 4 cards/embellishments.

    an essential component for planners (01 September 2016)

    these are nice quality inserts. i especially like the graph paper inserts, because i like to do sketches while i am brainstorming for home improvement projects. the regular lined inserts do not have a header, so the writing lines start right at the top of the page. if you want a header, try the lined tablet sold separately in the carpe diem line.



  • Verified Buyer

    nice basic tablet (01 September 2016)

    this lined tablet has a good weight, and has a header, which the other lined tablet in the carpe diem basic insert set does not have.

    another great reset girl product! (01 September 2016)

    i love this journal, and how it fits perfectly into the inside back cover of the carpe diem planners. the illustration in the description shows a fully decorated inside 2 page spread. just so you know, the pages are printed with a mini grid, and the ink looks vaguely beige/pink. i can't wait to find a good use for it.

    comprehensive label set (01 September 2016)

    these are perfect for planner dividers. the font is nice and also very readable. i don't think i will have to make any of my own labels, because the selection in this set is very comprehensive.

    cute and sturdy little album (01 September 2016)

    i bought this to make a mini scrapbook for my brother and his wife to document his wedding. they are not scrapbook people, so this li'l thing will do the job nicely. the cover and rings are sturdy, and this comes with 4 card stock pages/dividers in several navy blue patterns. they are slightly bigger than 4 x 6. additionally, there are 4 slightly lighter-weight pages with lines and graph paper squares (also slightly larger than 4 x 6). these might be nice for journalling. the navy blue spine has a slightly grayish tone, by the way. the assorted page protectors look good too. be sure to seal the kraft chipboard portion of the cover, because if you don't, it will get stained and you will be sad.

    good page protectors--but with one caveat . . . (23 November 2015)

    I really like pocket pages that offer a mix of vertical and horizontal photos. I have used the Becky Higgins Design G pages with sucess. The fact that they are not 12 x 12 does not bother me . . . too much. However, when I saw these, I was really excited to use them because: they were 12 inches wide to work well with other 12 x 12 layout pages, and I could use some of my 12 x 12 papers to make a nice decorative strip. When I got them, I was bummed that the strip slot was almost 12 1/2 inches long, and needed something added on to the top or bottom to fill the slot without the next page showing through. I put a tab up at the top to make a title for the page, which solved the problem . . . almost. So . . . then the strip would not stay in place. I put a small piece of (acid-free) scotch tape in the middle to close the pocket. Since I have several more of this design to use, I'm going to try to merge two strips of paper to make the right length for the pocket, probably with a fishtail cut so I can use that for title or captions or whatever. with a bit of re-design, this page will be terrific. Also, I might want one of the 4x6 pockets split into 2 3x4 pockets, so there is space to use up some of my filler card stock. Maybe the vertical pocket coulld be split to make 2 horizontal 4 x 3 pockets. We get these cards in many sets, but there are a limited number of pocket page designs for them to fit into.
    If anyone has other creative solutions to any of these problems, I would be interested to read about them.

    cute and fresh set (22 November 2015)

    These are cut cut-apart cards with simple and tasteful designs. I plan to use these cards for my teacher scrapbook. Collect all three papers for a full year. Fun!

    cool retro design (22 November 2015)

    This paper is so cool! The designer really knocked it out of the park with this collection. These designs remind me of the masks that came with the old Ben Cooper boxed costumes from the 5 and dime stores. Some of them are creepy, but authentic.

    super cool design (22 November 2015)

    This paper is so cool! I plan to put it in a 12x12 frame as a halloween wall decoration. There is no way I can bear to cut this apart.

    giant scallops, for real! (22 November 2015)

    This tape is larger than I expected. At the widest point, it is 1.5" wide. This would look great on a larger-sized project, like a poster. It would also look fine if you want to use scallops in a major way. The tape is almost fabric-like, and the gold glitter does not appear to rub off. Additionally the gold is muted. I like it. It's subtle.

    cute card! (22 November 2015)

    This is a nice set of one-sided cards with square corners. The faux layered look (background, writing space, wash tape) makes everything go faster. There is not a lot of journalling space, which ends up working well if you do not have a lot to say.
