The description didn't say assembly required. I looked back, after receiving this to see if I had missed that. It's listed under "specifications. It should be in item description ... (see full review). The assembly instructions were confusing. Once I put them aside and used my common aense, it went together easily. I love the piece, just disappointed it wasn't clear that assembly was required.
I love to use this set of dies. It looks so elegant. If you have trouble cutting the 'wreath' thing, cut it by itself, or without the other dies close to it. I think it gets more ... (see full review)pressure. It's beautiful, & so are all the other pieces! It's at a fantastic buy, now, so don't pass it up!
I was so disappointed in this one as I bought it for a gift but had to keep it for myself as it looks like it was a repackaged item as the ribbon was all frayed on the end and had ... (see full review)a big dirty spot on it.
I don't know whether this is a dud or what. Perhaps it was dropped at some point, but it does not cut a precise circle, the paper sticks in the punch, tearing the subject, and the ... (see full review)re are metal shards on the edge....I have to return it, and I was so excited to finally get one. :-( However, I am going to ask for a replacement just to see if this was a one-off or normal.
My husband just put this together. Very disappointed in that the containers do not fit correctly on the shelves. Maybe 1/2-1 inch smaller and they would solidly fit--now they are ... (see full review) slightly too big to fit in the metal slots. So they are tilted a bit. AND, the ironing board does not fold up making an even board--the one end is slanted up...no way I can see to correct this. I will still iron on it without a problem....but the baskets, you need to replace with ones slightly smaller to fit. I have not used it...hopefully it is sturdy while ironing.
It was very hard to use I had actually went over the Starter kit CD a dozen times and watch endless of hours of how tos on You tube nothing short of wasting a lot of paper template ... (see full review)s and time. I sent it back. I will be sending starter kit back also
I have been ironing my clothes for46 years and have used every iron imaginable, I am writing this to tell everyone there is no iron like this iron. It is the best iron I have ever ... (see full review)used. I recommend anyone that uses an iron often this is the iron you need to get. Thank you so much HSN for the best iron ever
I really feel like I stole a deal with this kit on clearance. I have been trying to improve my various forms of writing greetings with different books. This is by far the least dau ... (see full review)nting and most helpful to date. Not only the least expensive tool I've bought, but also the best value by far. It has a lot of practicing sheets, and good info. Appreciate the addition of the pens. Best of all, until I master the free-hand techniques, the stencils of both the alphabet and greetings in different fonts has been so awesome to use!! Love!
I have so much jewelry half the time I cant see them, so I decided 2 order 2 of the boxes. When I got them home I could not believe how well they were made and at last I could see ... (see full review)what I wanted to wear without tangling everything together. The ease of getting into the box made me very happy also. Well to make a long story short, I came back for 2 more boxes. I told you I had a lot. LOL
I like using the Metallic papers, because they have just a slight shine and make wonderful cards. The 12 x 12 is perfect for making two 6 x 6 cards. The pastels are soft colors ... (see full review)and elegant looking.
I love the appearance of these but I was so disappointed when they began to lift at the seams when I took the lids off. I have glued them but it will cause me to pause prior to pu ... (see full review)rchasingagain.

I buy these mostly for the fronts, because many of the interiors have arrived damaged in my experience. I also find it a little strange that the majority of the adhesive is Not on ... (see full review)the side where you want to cover bleed-through if you have used alcohol markers. That said, I often use just the fronts on a 5x7 card with a pattern or Anna Griffin flocking. I prefer a little larger card, anyway. Just went back and changed my rating from 3 to 4, because they do make lovely cards used in this way. I just have never gotten a full box of greeting papers that were not damaged in some way (out of probably 6 boxes). PS-I'm picky, and if I bought that many boxes, they must have sumthin' goin' on!
Super cute stamps and, like another reviewer, I especially like the large "Happy Christmas" stamp.It is so difficult to find greeting in this size. They are all super cute and stam ... (see full review)p well. If I had friends who are crafters I would definitely snap a few more of these up for gifts. Fabulous buy...Iove clearance!
I love the glitter and foil Spectrum Noir pages. These were packed really well so there are no bent corners or other damage. Not a huge fan of the Eastern Promise which is on plain ... (see full review) paper. The images are nice, but I tend to get too detailed when I color, and I can see these becoming a little tedious. There are a couple pages in each of the other books that feel as though they ran out of ideas...not sure what a few of the things are supposed to be. All in all a good value and great fun, and a five star value if you enjoy Mandalas.
The papers and Dazzles are really nice. I just tried out the stamps and I had to stop and write this. I am fairly new to stamping, but my skills are improving. That said, these sta ... (see full review)mps make the most clear, sharp beautiful images I have stamped to date (all perfect on the first go), and I have acquired quite a few. The little butterfly wings are such a cute addition. I was so excited with the stamps that I didn't try the template yet, but it looks pretty straightforward and super cute. LOVE!!! (PS-I used Ranger Archival ink and Rock-a-Blocks).
As a non-professional, who stamps, and makes cards for the enjoyment, I can honestly say they are the best watercolor pencils I have ever used. Rich color, full coverage, ease of ... (see full review)blending, etc., etc. They do the work for you. Love applying the water brush to the pencil tip. Smooth application whether using water color paper or card stock. Definitely don't need to use a lot of water keeping the color contained within the stamped image. Would love to see iridescent watercolor pencil.
I 'm so happy I purchased this. I missed it when it was on sale and have been waiting for it to come back in stock, finally I got it. It's great for making cards. You can line u ... (see full review)p your stamps and it keeps them in the same spot so if you make a mistake all is not lost, you just re-stamp. Or if your making more than one card you can re-ink and re-stamp easily instead of doing each card from the beginning. Great product!
I bought this so that I could re-hem my living room draperies! I sent them out to be cleaned and pressed and the hems have fallen in several areas...ssooo, I really hope this work ... (see full review)s as they say it does! Wish me luck!

I am impressed with the service. It was shipped promptly and received within days. Great service. The machine is perfect for me. I wanted to scan into a machine my own creation ... (see full review)s and produce stencils and outlines. I also wanted to use the drawings from grand kids to put on pillows, clothes etc. using them as stencils. Decided on this one as it can be used with a computer or it can stand alone. I have the choice. Little expensive to get started with due to purchasing extra mats, blades etc. but will be worth it in the end. Very satisfied.
I'm getting back into art after 30 years to help control stress. I'm disabled and have Addison's disease so controlling stress is crutial to my quality of life. These markers are g ... (see full review)reat. These blend beautifully and if you go outside the lines, you can easily fix. The caps are a bit hard to get off though. There's no toxic smell and they dry fast. The colorboooks are amazing too. My adult kids love them too. Wish they made colorbooks for boys and men, like cars and airplanes and stuff. I imagine these markers would be great for smaller children too.
I bought these with the glitter and foil cards and I am having so much fun coloring with them! I finished one card the first day I got them and now I'm working on another one. Th ... (see full review)ey go on very smoothly and the colors are great.
$5 is a steal but even at the regular price it's a deal for the amount you get. I don't even know why they are still available. I guess people don't realize. I ordered one and came ... (see full review) back and ordered 2 more later. A total of 240 cards for $15. I have taken some of them and cut them in half and made card frames and layers. If you cut one card in half and cut a frame out of each half you can use that one card to embellish 4 cards with frames and layers. The ones that are printed on the front, pop a frame and a bow on it and it's quick and done but still semi-handmade. All of the colors coordinate. This is definitely what my husband has gotten use to me calling-- scoop.
I was so excited to try this out. However, I was very disappointed. It constantly gets stuck and to fix it you end up disposing of unused tape. The smaller one is not durable and i ... (see full review)t broke very easily.
