Scrapbook.com sent me the entire complete nested die kit that this lovely set is in and requested that in exchange, I offer a blog review/tutorial with entirely unbiased opinion on them. I was happy to do so. I have only ever known Umbrella Crafts to create outstanding quality products and these were no exception. I was grateful for the opportunity to get my hands on them and I find the size range in each nested set in the variety kit, to be really well thought through. Lots of care obviously went in to creating them and I'm sure I'll have these for years to come. I am happy to highly recommend this and each of the sets in the complete nested variety kit.
I bought these nested dies to try them out. Wasn't sure I'd like a brand other than what I've bought in the past. So glad I did! They're wonderful! They cut cleanly, and look great. The card they came on is reusable for storage, and the dies stick securely to it. I really like this set, and I highly recommend it.
I am new at using die sets. I recently bought Cricut Cuttlebug. This set is one of the first I have purchased. I was able to create a very cute birthday card with three of the nested sizes. They were easy to use with the Cuttlebug. I also purchased the nested circles, but have not had the opportunity to use them, but I am quite sure they also will be easy to use.
Cuts like a dream and very crisp! This set of dies seems much sturdier than another design I recently purchased. Have already used on several projects. A definite winner and the price can't be beat!
