    Great Cardstock but Color in Photo not Quite the Same (10 March 2018)

    All Bazzill paper is of great quality but this paper is definitely more of a deep sky blue than the slight blue-green my monitor is showing me of the product photo online. Many of the projects that are in the gallery that use this paper have a much better color representation than the product photo.

    High Sheen and Very Strong (10 March 2018)

    This thread is so lovely! It has a very high metallic sheen. It is also strong and a bit thicker than normal thread--perfect for sewing on to paper.

    Great Little Machine for Paper Crafters (10 March 2018)

    I just received my WeR mint sewing machine and used it for the first time. I'm a first time sewer and after reading through the instruction manual, I was able to sew easily onto cardstock! My thread broke at one point while sewing onto scraps and had to re-thread the upper thread though I didn't manage to get it properly in between the tension plates. It was easy enough to figure out with a little playing around and some minimal guidance from my mom who's worked with sewing machines for years now.

    It's light-weight, making it ideal for multi-media crafters, especially if you are moving your various machines in and around your crafting space. I also like that there is a way to clean out the little pieces of paper that get punched out, which regular sewing machines don't have.

    After playing on some scrap paper I finally decided to sew some pleated paper for an actual project and it turned out perfectly! I would highly recommend getting this if you love to sew on paper.

    Nice kit but does not include oil (10 March 2018)

    This kit is handy to keep extra spools of thread, pins and such that won't fit in the drawer under your WeR sewing machine but it did not come with oil--which is the main reason I bought this kit!

    The Scrapbook.com site says it comes with oil, when you look at the photo on the site it shows oil and the wording on the packaging in the photo says it comes with oil. However, when I received my kit, I opened it up and it did not contain oil. I looked at the packaging it came in and it does not show oil in the photo and does not say in the wording that the kit includes oil.

    I'm a little disappointed since that was the main reason I bought the kit, other than getting extra bobbins.

    Detailed and Beautiful (15 February 2018)

    These lovely little dies are perfect for any look from distressed to foiled and shiny. The two sets of dies for each butterfly are perfect for using together or separately. The top layer die is very detailed and cuts perfect every time. I love every single one of the Tim Holtz dies that I own.

    Love the Color and Sparkle (15 February 2018)

    This pairs perfectly with other rose gold hues. Tremendous amount of sparkle! This paint will definitely cast a spell on you!

    Beautiful Color (15 February 2018)

    Perfect for Mixing Custom Color Mists (15 February 2018)

    These empty bottles are great for mixing up your own custom color/glimmer mists. The only time I've ever had issues with these spray bottles clogging is when I had to put all of my supplies in storage for 3 months while waiting to move. Otherwise, they have a very low clog tendency.

    Versatile (03 August 2017)

    These drops dry crystal clear and are perfect for adding subtle glossy shine to projects or for making raindrops. I also love applying them directly to a project over water-based inks like Tim Holtz Distress Inks--the wet drop absorbs some of the color before it dries creating a unique effect.

    Very Vintage! (03 August 2017)

    I just love this typewriter from WeR! Everything came in working order and is very easy to use. I haven't changed out ribbons yet though. I love that you can put a whole 12x12 sheet in it and type journaling directly on the page--this is so handy! I love that it feels like a real vintage typewriter too. Depressing keys feels exactly like on my 100+ year old vintage typewriter and that gives you more control over how much ink is transferred to the page. A light press leaves less ink and a good firm punch of a key leaves a very "inky" letter (this may take some trial and error until you get used to it). Though the back end of the typewriter is a little heavy because of the carriage, it is not nearly as heavy as my 100+ year old typewriter. The mint color is so pretty too and I love that each of the ribbons have 2 color options on one strip.

    Comfortable to Hold and Powerful (03 April 2017)

    I bought this after my last heat tool died after years of use. I chose this one because of the handle--I wanted something more ergonomic. It is very comfortable to hold and though it takes a little longer than my last heat tool to warm up, it is powerful once it gets hot! Love that it is also quiet and doesn't blow embossing powder around.

    Perfect "Wink" of Glitter! (03 April 2017)

    This pen delivers just what it says--a wink/touch of glitter! It is the perfect amount of fine glitter and is so easy to use with zero mess! The tip is great for fine lines or filling in areas. I use it on stamped images as well as on die cut cardstock pieces to add a touch of sparkle.

    Gorgeous Blue! (21 August 2016)

    Like all of Prima's color bloom sprays, this one is the same--great coverage, vibrant color and the perfect amount of shimmer! I just love this hue of blue. It's perfect for any beach or sky-themed layouts.

    Beautiful Color and Coverage (21 August 2016)

    Prima never disappoints! I love all of the Color Bloom 2 sprays that I have purchased--the colors are vibrant, the coverage is great and the shimmer is perfect! The black tulip color is perfect--it looks exactly like my black tulips in my spring garden!

    Perfect for Altering (17 August 2016)

    I just love the large box of flowers in white that Prima makes. They are all perfect for using Color Bloom sprays on. The flatter dimension of these particular ones makes it easier to add a ton of flowers to a layout without worrying about how much room it will take up in an album!

    Heaven Sent Pastels (17 August 2016)

    I love the whole Heaven Sent line--everything coordinates so lovely in pretty shades of pastels. Love the vintage look as well. I especially adore the Amelia flowers. They are the perfect shades of turquoise and the chunky glitter is so fun!

    Innovative Look (08 March 2015)

    I ordered these for a vacation album that has lots of beach photos to scrap. These remind me of fish or mermaid scales--so enchanting and such an innovative texture! And the colors are quite beautiful too.

    Delicate (22 February 2015)

    I just love all the vellum flowers from Prima's Sunset collection! They are so delicate and ethereal with a little bit of sparkle in the centers. Perfect for adding punch to your LO or card without it being heavy-handed.

    Beautiful Color! (22 February 2015)

    Pressed Petal is a gorgeous deep purple with hints of reddish-purple shimmer. If you need a purple mist--this is the one to get! As with all the other Prima Color Bloom mists, the coverage is fantastic and the bottle is easy to use.

    Quick and Easy Gift--Such a Wonderful Idea! (17 December 2014)

    I had recently purchased the Homespun Recipe Binder Kit and loved it so much, that when I saw the Cozy Christmas Recipe Binder kit I just had to purchase it. The directions are relatively easy to follow and you can quickly assemble it. The only thing that took forever to do was decide which recipes to include. My sister married this summer so I'm giving both the recipe binders to her for Christmas. I think these recipe binders make great gifts--the designs are sweet and you end up with a wonderfully personalized item in the end. Next time I buy a recipe kit I'm keeping it for myself!

    Love at First Sight (20 April 2014)

    I bought the Stationer's Desk crystals along with almost the entire Something Blue collection from Prima in anticipation of scrapbooking my sister's wedding photos in a few months--so I haven't used them yet. But when I received them in the mail they just took my breath away--literally! The photo of these pretty jewels just does not do them justice! The colors are so vibrant and the texture is amazing (it's like a geode). I can already tell that they will be a perfect accent and compliment the blush color in my sister's wedding!
    Here is a link to my gallery of a photo I took of them so you can really see the color and texture: http://www.scrapbook.com/galleries/442363/view/4194215/-1/0/2.html

    Only Used Once but Already in Love! (03 January 2014)

    I've only had a chance to use this once since I purchased it but I already love it! Everything stores so nicely into the board and it's very well made. I love having the pouch to keep it safely stored when not in use. My very first try at making a bow took me a little bit to understand the instructions, but once I got it, I had a perfect little bow! (I know that next time I'll be much faster at it.) I absolutely love this product!

    Wonderful Texture (03 January 2014)

    This does exactly what it says it will do. I loved the effect and the texture it lends to my projects, especially when used in conjunction with all the other Distress inks/paints/stains.

    Great Everyday Stamps! (03 January 2014)

    These stamps match the rest of the Finnley line so perfectly but these can also be used on a variety of projects--the date/month stamps are wonderful! The images come out crisp and clean.

    Wonderful Colors and Patterns (28 November 2013)

    I love the colors and patterns in these flowers. They are pastel yet have just a hint of vibrance to them that make them a stand-out pice on your layout. With the variety of colors and patterns, they match well with out products too.

    Perfectly Coordinates (28 November 2013)

    These rhinestones are absolutely beautiful! They perfectly match the papers in the collection and I love that they come in a variety of sizes. I think I may have to buy another pack or two of these because they are so fun to add to my layouts!

    Love Heidi Swapp Color Shine! (14 November 2013)

    I love every Color Shine I've ever bought! They are very pigmented and I especially love this purple. It's a nice medium purple that isn't too dark and not too pastel-y.

    Great Mix of Colors (16 May 2013)

    I just adore Prima's mini sachets--they are the perfect mini flowers. The mix of color in Sunrise is gorgeous! They look just like they do in the photo--vibrant and saturated. I just love curling the little stem on these guys to add some greenery and more dimension to them.

    Slight Color Variance but Still a Beautiful Product! (16 May 2013)

    The batch I received weren't as deep a purple as in the photo but I'm guessing there is always some variance since they are handmade. They were well constructed (even held up when I needed to peel some excess hot glue off of one) and worked perfectly for my project.

    Beautiful Silver (16 May 2013)

    Heidi's Color Shine Mists are always so full of color and Tinsel is a gorgeous silver!

    Great Investment! (13 May 2013)

    These are the perfect stamps for adding that "handwritten" touch for those that don't always trust their own handwriting. They are the perfect size--not so small you can't read it and not so big that it takes up too much space. These are great for layouts and cards. Definitely a great investment!

    Love, love, love it!!!! (05 May 2013)

    I have only used it once but I am in love with this all-on-one distressing tool! This is perfect for any kind of distressing you want to do to your paper or pictures because of all the different distressing tools to chose from. I particularly like the rough grit and paper edge distressing tools to get that perfect worn look on my papers.

    Even more beautiful in-person (28 August 2012)

    I just loved all the colors and swirls in this paper but was even more excited about the paper when I received it. The colors are so vibrant and the detail really is beautiful. I'll have to save this paper for something special!

    So Cute! (28 August 2012)

    I used this on a scrapbook layout recently just to add a little bling and it worked perfectly! (The layout features a little yorkie pup with a tiny tiara on her head so this crown brooch was the perfect accent.) The clasp is very sturdy and all the jewels seem to be attached securely to the frame of the crown.
