Great Way to Catch Up and Document Past Years! (20 June 2019)
Life gets busy, and while I love taking photos, it can be hard to find the time to do anything with them--like getting them off my phone, camera or computer. This makes it SUPER easy to essentially play catch up and quickly document several years and events. My kiddos are now 10 and 12, yet I feel a weight lifted as I can now have beautiful scrapbooks of their childhoods with photos and journaling--and it took no time at all. A tip: if you have children (or grandchildren), involve them by using the included journaling cards to "interview" them. This will both capture their handwriting at that moment in time, and also what they love at that age. Favorite book, grade they are in, what they love to do, eat, etc. I also love to use the journaling cards for my kiddos to draw me pictures that I can just pop in the sleeves.
Love the Versatility of the Glimmer!!! (06 September 2018)
This system is so much fun to work with. It is unique and different from a foil machine, as it allows you to work with so many types of materials. I created beautifully foiled Christmas cards, but my favorite way to use the Glimmer Hot Foil machine is to emboss napkins with foil sentiments. They look like they were purchased at a fancy store! I cannot wait to work with other materials-it also works with things like leather, wood grain paper, velvet paper...make sure you own a manual die cutting machine as this is an accessory to be used with one.
Beautiful! (12 April 2018)
I purchased this to place in a 12x12 frame in a bedroom-it's so fun and something a little different. I love that it's easy to change out...with more pieces of paper from the Flourish line! :)
Such a beautiful calendar! (12 April 2018)
I love this calendar! I noticed this in a friend's workspace and had to have one! The fonts are so yummy and the gold foil is beautiful. I love that each page has a different design--there are colorful pages, floral, black and white, graphics. It's also wonderful that you can write your own dates in--I typically am not a huge fan of doing this, but it's great to be able to do this and still use the other months later. Great price, too!
Hey Girl Hey! (13 June 2017)
This is one of my favorite sayings in the pack!
This is a great ephemera pack--great colors and sayings. I love the entire collection!
Fast Drying! (13 June 2017)
This is one of my favorite products. Ever.
If you love glittery and gold and shiny, this is for you. I kind of have to stop myself from using this on everything, because you know, my grocery list doesn't really need it. Or does it? ;)
One of the things (or maybe the thing) that makes it so great is how fast it dries. Love that!
My Second Time Purchasing This (13 June 2017)
I wanted to be sure that I got more of this--I am not even done using my first roll, admittedly, but I love it that much! It's super cute, I feel like I got a lot in the roll for the price, and it's great that it can be used as a black and white option, or colored in.
Dreamy! (13 June 2017)
I have had my eye on these forever, and I finally bought them. I can't wait to buy more! They are the perfect puffiness, GOLD (!), and the perfect embellishment.
Tiny but Adorable (13 June 2017)
I love these for adding accents to my pages and to place inside of my planner. They are pretty small, but I love the different colors and sizes.
Fabulous Fonts + Designs (13 June 2017)
I love this set for several reasons:
1. It comes on a pre-punched cardboard backing so that it easily fits inside of your Happy Planner
2. The fonts are perfection--not old, always-used fonts. Super cute and handwritten-looking fonts
4. The patterns, colors and designs are great
5. The quotes they chose for this are not ones that you often see, but are so awesome!
Where have these been my whole scrapbooking life?! (05 May 2017)
Seriously, these are so easy! I love using these and can't believe how much use I got out of these as soon as I took them out of the package. I have used every size over and over. I would recommend these to any scrapbooker.
So adorable! (05 May 2017)
This is such a great deal, and so perfect to document any trip you have taken (or will be taking) to Disney. It has everything you need right in the kit, you don't need anything else except your photos and memories! It would be a great album to take with you on your vacation to journal as you go and to add memorabilia to each day while on your trip. It's so easy to do it--love this!
Great variety! (05 May 2017)
These phrases are super sweet, meaningful and add so much to my projects. I love the look they give (that "typewriter" feel that is so popular right now) and there are SO many of them! I want to buy all the sets!
Super fun and lots of choices! (05 May 2017)
There are so many fun designs in this ephemera pack, I feel like this is such a good deal! They are unique, cute and super on-trend. I have been using these in my layouts, in my mini albums, and in my planner. Lots of uses--I just have to keep my kids from snagging them because they love the ice cream cone! :)
PARTY ON! (05 May 2017)
These are just TOO CUTE! Really, I adore this set. There are so many different combos of cards, tags, etc. that I have made, and I just think that these little guys with the hats are precious. They are so fun and are great to make birthday cards to have on hand, to use in your planner to mark when you have a party or when there is a birthday, or to make little gift tags. I love coloring in the animals with fun colors, too. Have you ever seen a pink zebra? :)
TONS of stickers! (05 May 2017)
This tablet is full of tons of adorable stickers--the designs are super cute, and I feel like they are really great for my planner and also for my scrapbooking. They are going to last awhile--there are so many sheets and choices!
Great buy! (05 May 2017)
I purchased this mainly to punch through my chipboard pieces when I make mini albums. It punches through them easily, and I feel confident that it will be around for a long time--it feels well made, heavy and like it won't break any time soon. I feel like I got a really great deal--this was less expensive than other Crop-A-Diles, so if you don't need the other features, or prefer to have the features on separate punches, this is awesome!
Love the thickness! (05 May 2017)
These are beautiful! I love the colors, the font, the designs, and they seem really big. Most of all, they are really sturdy and feel heavy. Love these stickers and I would definitely buy more!
Beautiful Collection (05 May 2017)
These pieces are even more beautiful in person! The colors are different than most pastels in that they are almost a metallic pastel. There is a great variety, and the size of them is really nice. I love the designs--they are very versatile and are perfect not only if you are using other items in the Oasis collection, but also if you use the ephemera with other paper and accessories.
Gorgeous! (15 January 2017)
I love this paper--even better in person than it is on screen. The HELLO font is perfection! Heavy, great quality.
Love the Fonts (15 January 2017)
These are perfect for the many celebrations that you will want to use your Lightbox for. I find that there are so many uses for them. Very versatile--I use this set a lot!
So Versatile and Easy to Customize! (11 November 2016)
I love my Heidi Swapp Lightbox! It is so versatile and perfect for any occasion--my kiddos are always excited to see what the newest message is, and they even request to use it themselves to create special notes just from them. As the room mom for two classes, my HS Lightbox is the perfect addition for class parties--it can be used as a welcome message or as a prop for a class photo booth. There are so many creative ways to use it all year long. I find the letters and icons to be so well priced here at Scrapbook.com that it is so easy to customize and have variety.
