This set is so cool. Love the shine, they are so pretty. I can see using them on the tree, for tags, frame them. I wish there was different sets, like for St. Valentines day, Eas ... (see full review)ter, spring, 4th of July, Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. What fun.
I really love these and they brighten up any cards. The only reason for the four stars is the adhesive on the back when you peel the cover off, isn't very strong and sometimes nee ...

I really enjoyed making the gift card holders. The instructions were easy to follow and the quality is very good. I decorated half of the cards for Christmas. The other half wer ... (see full review)e not as "Christmasy" looking and I will hang on to them for other times of the year. I will have to embellish with my own dies but like the fact that they can be used for more than Christmas.
i never had anything to clean my dies out with or clear out the small pieces after die cutting. i was trying to use scissors or any pointy thing i could find. This tool was worth ... (see full review) the money spent and the additional items make crafting and cardmaking so much more enjoyable. The only problem was the zipper on the plastic case was broken. Poor quality.

With the usual quality of Anna Griffin's products, I had no hesitation ordering this. I let time get away from me and this seemed to be a great solution. Nope. What a disappointme ...

Love this stamps. There is a nac in using these stamps. Light pressure on the words, and firm pressure on the objects. I thought I was missing the clear stamper, but it had fallen ... (see full review)out of package when I opened.

This is the best marker set I have ever used! I've used copics before and I actually hated them and ended up selling them. When I first used these though, they flowed so well onto ... (see full review)the paper, and blended well too. And the biggest bonus is the DVD that you get with this set! She walks you through on how to highlight certain areas, shows you how to color skin, how to care for them, and shows you different techniques. I've been coloring for a while now, and even I learned a few things. I'm just beyond pleased and happy with my purchase.
Beautiful stamps that give clear images. I missed the presentation and could not zoom in enough to see all the stamps, so I took a chance on these. Some of the smaller sentiments ( ... (see full review)in case others can't zoom in either) are: "sending love & warm wishes this Christmas", "wishing you a joyful holiday season", "May your Christmas be merry & bright", "Peace", as well as 6 Snowflake stamps and a small star of Bethlehem (and of course the larger stamps that are more easily seen in the online images).
I fell in love with the Sizzix Big Shot die cutter. I originally intended it to be used for cutting fabric for quilting but it does so much more!! It can cut almost anything that g ... (see full review)ets put through it. The embossing is super fun and adds a nice touch. I wish, though, that there were detailed instructions with everything sizzix related. I find that I end up looking online on how to use everything properly. That is not HSN's fault, though. Just a fair warning, though: this hobby is expensive.
The mind of genius. I am using this very often. I have decent handwriting; but, this keeps my lettering to a uniform size and also in a straight line (otherwise everything I write ... (see full review)tends to run downhill). I use this for my hand written correspondence now also.Thank you.

(see full review)ts. I like to use these for resist techniques and with masks. They make dreamy washed backgrounds. I was surprised at how intense the colors are. I have been able to color on wood as well as cardstock and paper.
This is a lovely embellishment for my Christmas cards. The only problem I had was understanding the directions! I replayed the HSN video of the product over and over. The step t ... (see full review)hat I was having the most problems with was breezed over. You have to diecut on cardstock, peel off one side of the adhesive paper and adhere it to the diecut. Peel off the other side of the adhesive and place foil on top. Run through Cuttlebug.
Beautiful product, but hard to use. This was a gift for mom which is 85lbs and could not turn the knob. Embossing is easier but the die cuts are awful to roll thru and the plate sc ...

The diameter of the tape roll is very big, resulting in your actually getting very little tape on each roll. Not really worth the price, but not worth the time and money to return ... (see full review). Would not order again
The "idea" of this small die-cutting machine is wonderful, but.... I wanted to love this little machine, but it's just not worth the cost. It broke after using it just 5 or 6 time ... (see full review)s. I noticed that with each use, the handle became harder and harder to turn. With the last use, the little plastic folder and die became stuck, and impossible to remove. After finally getting the plastic folder out, the machine would no longer work. I used it with the die that the machine came with, and a piece of glitter cardstock. Maybe I had a faulty machine, but I also have a few other die machines, and I have never had anything like this happen before. Very disappointed to say the least!!! If you plan on using this with the thinest of paper, you may be ok, but any thicker, and you may have a problem. Not worth the cost or the aggravation!!!!
There were not any instructions for the clear bands and I had to find what they were for on you tube. Be careful of the adhesive you use as mine have come apart. I used 3 differe ...

I love the Spectrum Noir marker sets. The colors are wonderful with a full range of colors. I plan to collect the entire assortment. I am a new paper crafter. I was looking for ...

I realize that not everyone can afford this set - that being said, if you want good (maybe even superior) alcohol markers with bang for your buck, this is worth the investment. No ... (see full review)rmally purchasing markers from the arts or crafts stores can drive the cost to between $3 and $7 per pen. Even if you catch a set using a sale or coupon that can still be about $3.50 per pen. With this set you are getting pens for less than $2. That alone is worth trying. Be sure to check your pens to make sure the housing isn't cracked (though not something I experienced, but I did take others' recommendations before being stuck with something I could not return). My only other disappointment is that this is not a complete set. You will still need to purchase the darks, pastels, and brights to complete the Spectrum Noir color chart. If that does not bother you or you see it as a worthy challenge, give this a try.

Gee this is the first AG item I'm not liking. I've waited so long for the price to drop, ordered it in Nov 2016, received it but i am so disappointed in the die cuts. I cannot get ... (see full review)a clean cut no matter how many times I run it through my embosser and the embellishments are just awful. I'm thinking of returning this item. I tried various card stock with the same result. Yet Anna's cards that come in the package are beautiful. Also, don't know why the embellishment dies in this package do not fit around the openings. I would like to make a contrast color. The dies are way to small. I'm going to call AG customer support and inquire about this. I may be doing something wrong. Will give it two more tries before returning.
The stickers are nice, but the occasions on them could use some work. I bought these for cards I sell, and the top three requests are always birthday, get well, and sympathy. In th ... (see full review)is kit you gave us nearly 1/4 of it on Thank You stickers. In fact there were more thank you ones than sympathy, get well and baby combined. Why throw in six Easter? That would be just fine if you'd put other holidays in place of all the thanks.Having part of the stickers in silver would also be nice.
it is really difficult to get a good fold without the paper lifting/tearing. I like the concept, but I wish the middle panel were plain (no embossing) so you could write on it or ... (see full review)decorate it some other way.
