  • Great idea, but limited use (16 April 2019)

    I thought this die would make good bookmarks to give to Friends of the Libraries used book sale buyers, but I have yet to find an effective material to use that will remain usable for some time. Card stock of any weight survives only a few changes of applications. The cat and the unadorned dies cut well, but the antennae of the butterfly die do not survive efforts to keep them intact during separation from background.

    The balloon is OK. Otherwise, pffffft (28 August 2018)

    These dies come in one piece, with individual dies joined by very short wires that are difficult to separate with wire cutters. Most pieces are extremely small, and I doubt that I will use any but the balloon and its string.

    Larger than expected (25 February 2018)

    Lesson learned: Always read description! Scrapbook includes die size or size range for each die or die set. I thought I recognized this one from a card I received, so I ordered it without checking description. Largest flower size is 6"x6"! I doubt that I'll ever use it, but at least three smallest sizes will work. I didn't deduct a star for my negligence, although I should begin to deduct a star for any die that is secured by adhesive. Adhesives are my pet peeves about dies. First the dies have to be pried from the adhesive - not an easy task - and then adhesive traces have to be removed from the backs of dies before they can be used.

    Great ready-to-use die cuts (24 February 2018)

    I LOVE these! They are die cut from light weight cardstock and are ready to embellish anything for which you want to use them. I will be looking for "ephemera" in every collection I see from now on.

    Nice set of sweet prints (24 February 2018)

    Prints are tiny repetitious copies of themes found throughout the collection. Ready to use with my die-cutting machine and great for layering.

    Cute stickers to embellish cards, letters, whatever (24 February 2018)

    Great stickers to have on hand for embellishments. Some relate to subjects related to more than babies. Older children would love to get notes from Mom or Grandmom that are embellished with one of many stickers from this sheet.

    Beautiful colors, nice weight (24 February 2018)

    An integral part of this collection to use as bases for the stickers and die-cut ephemera. Love the colors! They are not just for babies. Relatively light weight cardstock allows for layering without raising mailing cost of cards.

    I LOVE these! Die-cut from light weight cardstock. Perfect embellishments for cards and gift wraps. I will be looking for "ephemera" for other collections

    Cute stickers to embellish cards, letters, whatever (24 February 2018)

    I ordered these stickers for my two-year-old great grandson to use to make a "poster" for his new baby brother. Two-year-olds LOVE stickers, and these are great ones. I may order a set for myself.

    Clean cut (14 January 2018)

    When will die cut manufacturers learn to use an adhesive that renders the dies easy to remove from the packaging? Magazines long have used such an adhesive to affix removable items to pages. Dies generally are affixed to double-sided adhesive tape or other adhesive that makes the dies difficult to remove and renders them subject to bending. These dies were particularly difficult to remove. The package was impossible to open without demolishing the rigid plastic and rendering it unusable for storage. For both of these reasons, I don't plan to buy more Spellbinders dies if I can find what I want offered by other companies. However, once I got the dies out of the package, they are excellent. Packaging counts! Dies are not Fort Knox.

    Great multi-purpose book (13 November 2017)

    I have these books with both black and Kraft-colored covers. Pages are heavy cardstock and will support anything I choose to put on them. I have used them for photos and for keeping a record of things I have knitted or sewn, with swatches and photos added. Possible uses are endless, and I keep a supply of blank books on hand. Covers are totally blank, so I make my own labels. LOVE these books!

    Nice set, with few reservations (02 November 2017)

    Pro: All but one letter (U) cuts cleanly every time.
    Cons: Lower case not available; adhesive that holds dies to card difficult to remove - a maddening but one-time distraction
