Wonderful! Some of the less expensive coloring books have a more porous paper and you can get some bleeding if not careful. There is a learning curve but they are awesome. I tri ...

Nice enough books with pretty images for card fronts and gift packages/bags. Gift tags are nice. My first impression was that the paper is not very bright white, which I personally ... (see full review) prefer. I didn't buy this kit for the pencils, and wouldn't expect great quality pencils for all you get at this price point. I didn't even try to use them. All in all, pleased with my purchase.
These booklets are great, they fit into a pocketbook and are great for traveling! Quite a few very nice illustrations..I'm coloring the pages and making cards w/ them. I went to a ... (see full review)craft supply store and picked up a package of blank card-stock cards along w/matching envelopes and I secure the colored pages to the front of the card with double-sided sticky foam dots so that the page has some dimension. I have also used a few embellishments on them to give them some bling...sparkles and the tags that are included allow you to make some really pretty & personalized cards!

There is an extra tatting needle in the set, and a threader, and the book, and I am well-pleased with the set, but the book itself? - I sat here and learned to needle tat last nig ... (see full review)ht. I fully recommend you read ALL the way through each exercise, BEFORE attempting it, however, because as an accomplished shuttle-tatter, I found the instructions themselves to be a bit wanting... For example, the author doesn't tell you until the END of the exercise that one absolutely MUST cut the thread away from the ball of thread in order to do rings and spaces. So, it took me about an extra hour of my precious time to try to figure out where SHE went wrong because in the beginning it suggested to cut the string from the ball, but did not explain one cant form a ring without doing that, and did not show how to form a ring if one doesn't use a cut thread, which can be done. IN fact, I created a way, trying to accomplish what she failed to share initially. Not great writing. Cute patterns though, a

I purchased this book after one of my knit groups raved about it. I rarely buy a book without looking at it first. I should have stuck to that rule. Someone else might like it. In ... (see full review) my opinion you can find nicer patterns free on the Internet. I've since been told that it has many mistakes in the patterns as well . My biggest pet peeve!
