I LOVE this grunge board. Ok, so the teensy weensy bit of a smell that comes from it when you first open the package is a bit off-putting. However, it goes away when you paint or ink the stuff or if you just leave it sit out for a bit. As for what I love about this stuff...well, there's quite a few things. 1) it bends and you can roll it up. No creasing like you get with chipboard. None. 2) It moves with the page as you are turning pages in your album. No popping off like stiff chipboard. It just goes with the flow. 3) paint and ink colors remain vibrant and you don't need heavy coats to keep them that way. The paint doesn't get dull or soaked up like it does on some chipboard. 4) paint and ink both dry quickly on grungeboard. 5) the shapes are totally cool and versatile. Go on, what are you waiting for? Getcha some!
This packet is so much bang for your buck. It is easy to work with, versatile, and there is no piece in it that I won't eventually use, although the flourishes were definitely the first to go. I wasn't sure how I was going to use the hinges, and then I watched Tim Holtz's video, and realized they will be perfect for actual hinges on a mini book, so I'm excited to try that out. I'm now going to go back and try the other styles!
Grunge board is so versatile and fun to use. I love it's flexibility. You can can hammer it, distress it, paint it, emboss it. It adds an easy, creative dimension and texture to all your los that you can customize to your style. It's a wonderful tool for any scrappers toolbox. I give it a huge high five!!

Grunge Board is far more versatile and durable than you might expect. I have tortured it in every way I could think of and have yet to be disappointed. Plain or textured, the quality and number of pieces included make this a real bargain.
