    Compared with Ranger/TimHoltz Domed Foam (26 July 2021)

    Iíve tried the Ranger and Scrapbook domed foams side by side and prefer the Ranger foams because they are slightly softer and thus hold and spread ink better. The Scrapbook foams also squeak across the paper surface,, and they feel more similar to the domed brushes that come in sets. I do like the domed foams better than the flat ones. The Scrapbook foams have a slightly thicker base which may make them somewhat easier to remove from a Velcro circle and thus sturdier in the long run. I keep my groans in a large flat Ranger gel plate tin.

    Love these glazes (20 June 2021)

    These are great glazes, although a challenge to use without making a mess. However, I follow Tim Holtzís suggestion and use a Swiffer cloth to clean up the loose powder. Love the colors and wish there were more.

    The Professor, of course! (13 June 2021)

    If youíre starting out, get this stamp second and The Professor (smaller version) stamp set first. Thatís how much I love this dude. You know your hair looks different every morning? (No, it is NOT the same.). Well, he looks different depending on how you use him. Women will love him, and men will tolerate him. An all-around kinda guy. He actually reminds me of a lawyer I once worked for who quit his job and sailed to Fiji. Canít you just SEE it in his eyes?

    How did I ever ink without this? (13 June 2021)

    Donít wait as long as I did to spring for this glass media mat. Itís sturdy, classy, and is well thought out. It also really helps you reserve space for working! (Havenít used the ruler accessory yet, but I have used the little scraper. If you have to economize you could probably do without the accessories, but why ?)

    Amazingly useful (13 June 2021)

    Love these wings more than I thought I would, given that they are not made of paper. They add a bit of jííne cíest quoi to a piece, and voila, youíre done!

    Very good coverage (13 June 2021)

    Got this as a gift from Scrapbook and just wanted to say thanks for an excellent product!

    A classic-to-be (13 June 2021)

    This is one of those stamp sets thatís destined to be a classic. Unusual shapes and variety. Good for grunging or laying on the mechanics, something every gal needs at some point .

    Good pens (13 June 2021)

    Iíve only used the pen with the brush point, and itís great. The roller ball point may be useful at some point, but I think Iíd rather have two brush pens or pens with thin and wide brush tips.

    These stamps need a stamping platform (13 June 2021)

    Iím love these figures but theyíre hard to make good impressions the first time around. I recommend using Distress medium on your paper before stamping, but even then some of the lines are so thin, youíll want to make another pass. Otherwise, great figures!

    Love this (13 June 2021)

    Good product. Goes on easily. Not as transparent as you might think but thatís okay.

    Another winner (13 June 2021)

    One of these stamps makes the entire sheet worth the price. The large Accelerator stamp is a replica of the red decal found in a Tim Holtz ephemera packet, and now I can make infinitely more of them!

    In my Top Five beat stencils (17 May 2021)

    This is a really great stencil and works especially well with distress crayons rubbed on with a blending tool. Definitely on my Top 5 faves list.

    Tip falls out (11 May 2021)

    Used this pen only once before the tip fell out, and I got white ink all over my hands while trying to reinsert it. Got it back in but then the Ink spilled out around the tip instead of going through it. Took the tip out again, washed it and used a sharp needle to clear out the nozzle. Now nothing comes out at all. Truly, it shouldnít be this hard to use a white ink pen.

    Difficult to use (06 May 2021)

    Unfortunately it is extremely difficult to pry or cut these sentiments loose, and then itís hard to use them without an ink smear.

    Doesnít fit the distress spray tin (03 May 2021)

    This bottle is too fat to fit the distress spray tin.



  • Verified Buyer

    Best of the lot (04 April 2021)

    If I could have only one texture paste, this is the one Iíd choose. It goes on easily and produces good results.

    Good clear stamps but not suitable for distressed projects (04 April 2021)

    These are big stamps but not red foam and they donít stick back onto the plastic once you remove them (there is a shiny film that washes off too easily). I wouldnít buy them again since I can use them only on large projects and nothing too distressed.

    Gorgeous paper (30 March 2021)

    Only problem with this paper is that I wish there were multiple sheets of each. That said, each sheet is exquisite, and choosing which side to glue down will keep me sleepless at night. Also Iím sorry to hear that The 12x12 sheets are being discontinued!

    Iíd have a hard time choosing between the two volumes, so I recommend getting both.



  • Flakes when dry (29 March 2021)

    Beware! This stuff flakes off when dry and makes a mess.



  • Verified Buyer

    Wish it was larger! (24 March 2021)

    Love this but it is difficult to use without the color bleeding under the stencil. I wish there was a larger, looser version of this stencil, I.e., more spacing and larger notes as well as a non-mini size.

    My favorite of these tapes (18 February 2021)

    Dark vintage photo with green shimmer tape, bold lettering. If I could only afford two tape sets, Iíd buy this one and the Rose set



  • Verified Buyer

    Love these (18 February 2021)

    Snippets but they really contribute to the ďthemeĒ of a project.



  • Verified Buyer

    See colors (18 February 2021)

    Colors are mostly shades of mossy green and brown, a little rose, silver with a shimmer. Would be good with botanical themed projects. Love these tapes



  • Verified Buyer

    Lovely but subtle colors (18 February 2021)

    Colors are light vintage photo, light rose, brass with a shimmer, nice large tape with roses (my favorite sling with the brass.



  • Verified Buyer

    Too funereal (18 February 2021)

    I was disappointed by the types of flowers. Too funereal and large



  • Verified Buyer

    warps when inked (11 February 2021)

    I would not recommend this paper for distress spray inking. It's too thin and also warps when drying. All you could really do with it is paste collage pieces on it.



  • Verified Buyer

    My favorite stencil so far! (01 February 2021)

    Yes, roses come to mind so I'm not sure why the stencil is called "Scribbles." It's a really lovely, incomparable design--evocative yet simple. I love this stencil, and it will definitely remain in my Top 5 of Tim Holtz's collection which I am slowly accumulating over time.

    Wish they came in larger sheets too (01 February 2021)

    The colors of this paper are really vivid, so well selected, truly gorgeous. I think they're great for sympathy cards too. I stamped mine, also stenciled over them by rubbing the distress metallic crayons on them but not smoothing out the color. The paper is so beautiful on both sides, I decided not to use a solid backing.
