    Love These Stitched Layering Dies (14 September 2021)

    I bought all the different shapes of these stitched layering dies (A2 size for the rectangles) from Paper Rose. They work perfectly (I use a Big Shot), had all the shapes I wanted, and were quite a bit more affordable than other stitched layering dies considering the count of each package. I compared several different brands, and these are, by far, the best bang for the buck. I got five different sets (circle, oval, square, rectangle, hexagon); they are worth it, and I recommend them.

    Excellent Buy! (30 July 2021)

    I've been wanting triangle trays for a long time. This was a fantastic buy for 12 trays! I'll be using them for gem embellishments as well as a scoop for my embossing powders. Definitely something I may buy again.

    Really Happy To Have (30 July 2021)

    I plan to use this "story" sentiment on the inside of pet sympathy cards. I really wanted something more than just "leave a pawprint on your heart." Or, even as the focal sentiment on the front of the card, leaving the inside free for a personal note.

    Finally Managed to Get the Silver! (30 July 2021)

    Seems like it is always out of stock. I'm so glad I finally got the silver, and before Christmas!

    Excellent Quality (30 July 2021)

    This paper may be a little bit on the pricey side, but it's quality and weight and colors make up for it. I can use this paper in a lot of different projects, and I like that.

    I like the text font, and I wanted these three words. Nice to find them together. They are perfect for my A2 size cards.

    Needed This for My Cosmit Shimmer Glue (23 July 2021)

    I have the Cosmic Shimmer glue in a big bottle and the tip is constantly clogging. I finally gave up on the big bottle and decanted it into this smaller precision tip bottle, and it's working great!

    Perfect for My Stampin' Up! Ink Pads! (23 July 2021)

    Love this storage unit. I got three, they hold all my Stampin' Up! ink pads and reinkers perfectly, along with some other pads and reinkers I have, along with room for some more. I have them set up on a dresser in my spare room, and they are a godsend so that I'm not rummaging through a box I had my ink pads in, trying to find the color I wanted. The units are sturdy, and also have wall mount holes on the back. They are heavy, so will need wall studs or some other heavy duty mounting method. That is a future project for me when I finally get my craft room set up and I'm not crafting out of boxes.

    Love This Embossing Folder (21 June 2021)

    It's a beautiful embossing folder. I got it to use with some daisy stamps and punches I have, and it created the perfect embossed background.

    28 Lilac Lane Premium Sequins - Metal (14 May 2020)

    Eh, not what I'd expected. There are an awful lot of dull plastic looking sequins included. I was hoping for more metallic sequins.

    Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue 125ml (14 May 2020)

    Pricey, but so far so good. It's doing its job. I like the narrow opening, without having to use a pin.

    BoBunny Double Dot Jewels - Citris (14 May 2020)

    Much bigger than I'd expected. They are beautiful, but I'll likely only use the two smaller sizes. I think they will work great for scrapbooking, but the larger dots not so much for card making.

    Tim Holtz Stacked Tiles Hexagons (14 May 2020)

    Really like the sizes of these dies. Great for "tiling" and sentiments. I also love having five sets so that I can cut multiples at a time. Nice time saver.

    Nuvo - Vintage Drops - Complete Kit (14 May 2020)

    New colors have come out, so this is no longer quite a complete kit, but the colors here are good.

    The colors are pretty close to what my monitor shows. The Chocolate Chip is slightly darker and actually looks like milk chocolate. The Postbox Red is an interesting color. It is not red, leans slightly to the brown side, maybe, but it dries nice and is a darker vintage color of red. It is not brown. I like it. I would have liked a light yellow, a black, and an off white in this set, but I'll be fine with these.

    Beautiful, Rich, *Dark* Rootbeer Brown (14 May 2020)

    Very Pretty (09 December 2019)

    I really love the roses in this set, as well as the Victorian damask and border stamps.

    I am a bit surprised the stamps are as thin as they are, and I am disappointed that I must cut a few of them apart.

    Price was right, though.



  • Verified Buyer

    Good Set (09 December 2019)

    I really hadn't planned on getting this set, I didn't particularly think it matched the papers in the collection, but I kept seeing places where I could use the floral stamp for subtle decoration in multiple projects. The sentiments are nice, too. And, the price is right.

    I'm happy with this purchase.

    Absolutely Perfect! (09 December 2019)

    These Paper Tree and Paper Boutique "kits" are absolutely perfect for card makers. They come with die cut sentiments and toppers and the matching 8x8 paper pad, which is the perfect size for patterns in the paper.

    The papers are very pretty, and the patterns are all interesting, whether large or small. There are a couple of pages maybe designed more for scrapbooking or mini albums vs card making, but the patterns on them could be used for cards, as well, and not just thrown into the pack as a "filler."

    These packs are really well put together and the colors all match and coordinate perfectly. Paper Tree and Paper Boutique are, I believe, subsidiaries of the same company, and the paper is very good quality. They are made in the UK, and the price is great.

    I am SO glad Scrapbook.com is carrying these papers, now!

    It's Ok (09 December 2019)

    When I placed my last order, I wanted some nice florals and patterns in papers that weren't holiday themed. I made a mistake in picking three pads that were all from American Crafts, even though they are under different names.

    This pad is a little bit better than the other two, in that there is more interest in the most of the patterns. The paper quality is good. As usual, though, the nondescript stripes and pale pages are definitely more suited for scrapbooking vs card making, and I wish there were less of them.

    Then, there is the "made in China" clearly on the back that I never am able to see when selecting papers. I really am trying to stay away from products made or produced in China. Yeah, it ain't easy.



  • Verified Buyer

    Disappointed This Time (09 December 2019)

    The papers are good quality, and I like the colors in this scheme, but this is definitely a pack designed for scrapbooking and not so much card making. A lot of nondescript stripes and random patterns that don't really coordinate or follow a theme. I mean, it can work for cards, but just not really sweet or hot enough for Honey & Spice.

    And, another one made in China. More disappointed, maybe, in myself vs the company. I should have known. I have been trying to avoid the made in China tag.



  • Verified Buyer

    It's Nice (09 December 2019)

    There are some nice, subtle patterns in this pack. It is a good pack, but it isn't super special, and one or two of the patterns seem to be "in" this year, showing up in other companies' papers, as well. The one thing I do not like, is the "made in China" tag. I may not get more papers from this company, but I did want to give them a try.



  • Verified Buyer

    Very pretty (09 December 2019)

    Cara Bella papers are always nice, and tend to cover both scrapbooking and card making equally well. This pack has lovely pastel spring colors and patterns.



  • Verified Buyer

    Subtle and Pretty (09 December 2019)

    Nice, subtle papers that can be used for winter cards and not just a holiday card. Not necessarily "traditional" colors, but can be coordinated with so many more.



  • Verified Buyer

    Really Lovely (09 December 2019)

    There are some really beautiful papers in this pack. I didn't dislike any of them, and some of them are just downright gorgeous in a serene type of way. I wish the papers were heavier, but these work well nonetheless. I'm a card maker vs scrapbooking, so the smaller pads work well for me.



  • Verified Buyer

    Very Lovely, Very Vintage (09 December 2019)

    Very lovely paper. It is vintage themed. No, it's not high gloss paper, but it is very pretty. I do think it is made more for scrapbooking, but this is why I got the smaller paper pad, so I could use more pattern for cards. I like it.



  • Verified Buyer

    Very Nice, Paper But Not Too Thin (29 November 2019)

    I tend to shy away from pads that are just more like glossy copy paper. This one, though, is heavier and not glossy, and while still not a cardstock and still a paper, it is really lovely and a good weight for adding to my cards and projects.

    I really like the designs and it is a wonderful and artistic variety of black, blue, gold. Although Christmas themed, several of the papers could be used for other occasions.

    It's slightly more expensive paper, but I am tempted to get a second pad, I do like it that much.

    Authentique Solitude (27 October 2019)

    I really love this collection. The colors are more muted and the patterns are suitable for masculine cards, as well. The weight of the paper is nice, too, leaning more the cardstock way rather than just paper. I'd certainly recommend this collection.



  • Verified Buyer

    Love This Paper (27 October 2019)

    I really do love this paper. I like the patterns and the weight is nice, too. I like the more muted, non-traditional colors, and the cut outs are lovely.

    Stunning Papers! (09 October 2019)

    I purchases these as a gift, but I almost kept them for myself. They are really quality and stunning designs. The paper is very sturdy (240 gsm) and I like the 6x6 pads are just smaller images and can be used on cards and are of the same great quality paper, too. I definitely recommend these papers!

    Not At All What I was Hoping For (08 June 2019)

    Not the best quality, I think. The stickers are a bit off color and have a rather wide border around them. The photo cut outs are ok, but not all that sharp. Overall, I'm not impressed.

    Not Quite What I Expected (08 June 2019)

    but it is a decent set of stickers. I just didn't register the 3D part. I can make them work in my project, so that's good.

    Nice Paper Pack (08 June 2019)

    I purchased both the 12x12 and 6x6 paper packs. I had no idea what the paper quality would be, since I'd not used Heidi Swapp before, but I am very happy. The 12x12 is perfect for scrapbooking, and the 6x6 is excellent for cards. I really like this collection. The paper is mat, not glossy, and I'm happy with this.



  • Verified Buyer

    Highly Impressed! (08 June 2019)

    I hadn't used Heidi Swapp papers before, so I wasn't sure how the quality would be. I loved the design of this collection, though, so I took a chance. I really, really like the 6x6 paper pad, it is perfect for the cards I want to make, and the paper is nice quality. It is a matte color and not glossy, but this is just right for what I wanted.

    Not the Bundle I Wanted, but... (26 April 2019)

    I'm glad I got this one. Really pleased with the tools that came with it, and love having the magnetic storage envelopes. The paper pack is good, too, and goes with some of my projects I've been working on. I am glad I got the Big Shot, it seems a well-built machine and I haven't had any problems using it.

    Tonic Studios Cardmaking Collection - Issue 8 Set (16 March 2019)

    This is my second set purchase. Issue 7 was wonderful, but this set is even more so! I originally purchased a set because of the dies, stamps, and embossing folder and papers, and I was very pleased overall, even with the papers which seemed maybe a little thin. However, this beautiful floral and butterfly set is outstanding and I couldn't be happier! The magazine even exceeded my expectations this time around for the Issue 8 set! The paper quality even improved. This set also includes elements which can be used for cards for men, too. I think this is only a quarterly offering, but I am definitely planning on getting each new issue as they come out.

    I Love This Trimmer! (16 March 2019)

    I had been wanting this trimmer! Very glad I got it! Excellent cutting, very sharp, has quarter inch markings on the base as well as markings for popular card sizes, self sharpening, it totally outshines the 12 inch trimmer from Streamline that I have. For smaller than 12 inch paper, this trimmer beats them all. I wish the Tim Holtz 12 inch trimmer had quarter inch markings, but even with half inch markings, it is still on my list for a future purchase to handle cutting down 12 inch papers.

    Excellent Bundle! (16 March 2019)

    I bought the bundle for the excellent price. I already had both the standard and travel platforms from Tim Holtz and I wanted a second travel platform. Absolutely the best platform still available! The addition of the sentiment stamps, note cards and envelopes, and stamp pad made this a good value in a bundle set. Most definitely recommend!

    Best Platform Ever! But it won't be here forever... (05 March 2019)

    Look, this platform is going away in the USA, so if you've been thinking about it or on the fence about it, get it now! You will not find a better platform, nor a better price. I bought the standard platform, and I bought two travel platforms.

    These platforms are perfect. Open sides to fit larger projects, really well built and sturdy, priced super well, easy to clean, great to have a side for rubber stamps and a side for clear stamps (I've had no problems with either), love that my arthritic and unsteady hands can restamp without worry, the travel size fits well in limited space, love the imbedded grid in the lid and I can easily use a piece of graph paper on the base if I need (but haven't needed thus far), the lid is sturdy and doesn't bow when I add pressure, the advantages go on and on.

    I am really happy I purchased the Tim Holtz stamping platforms. I would recommend them to everyone.
