This is a great idea as I do not want to measure and cut. However, there are absolutely no instructions, thus a 4. Please include detailed instruction and pictures in the future. ...

Just what I wanted and needed. Absolutely no complaints. Perfect for rubber cling and the thinner photopolymer stamps. I do use a bit of masking tape to secure a smaller bit of ...

I absolutely and thrilled to have these card sets in Anna's lovely Ivory! they are perfect for so many different uses; I actually just received my 3rd set....I'm going thru them ...

I don't buy die cuts often but when I saw these I had to have them and I wasn't dissapointed. They will make up my Mother's Day cards this year. I only wished I had been able to ... (see full review)tape the presentation so I could see how Anna used them. I wish she had a leaflet to go with the die cuts for ideas.
This was a fun and easy card kit. It was also very pretty. The different styles kept it from becoming boring. I have gotten rave responses from my friends that I have sent them ... (see full review)to already. I hope Paper Wishes comes out with more of these kits.
I was attracted to the colours. This is a pretty set, but I wish I had paid better attention to the price. If it's on sale, then yes, it a definite purchase, but not for the regu ... (see full review)lar price.
I'm so glad that I ordered this little Xyron "sticker maker". It comes ready for use with the 5" adhesive already installed. Just insert your die cut, turn the handle, slide the ...

That little adhesive eraser has really been wonderful! It removes any unwanted glue that's on your card. Works great! This was a great "perk"! Since I was so impressed with the 5" Creative Station, I ordered Anna Griffin's 9" offered recently.
I purchased these after I first used these dies at Anna Griffin's Create. I found that when use glitter paper with these dies, and added it to the card, wow, they really popped. Th ... (see full review)ey are beautiful with the metallic papers, and embossed with the mini images, also.

Would not stick to my very smooth painted wall. Somewhat better on the rough surface of my refrigerator. I still have to smooth it out 2-3 times a day. Great idea. They look good. ... (see full review)But the adhesive needs some work.

I missed out on them last time and am in desperate need of good storage to keep them all in the same place with easy access. Thanks Anna!
These are really wonderful adhesives. I was a little surprised to find the adhesive is dots, not solid, but that really doesn't matter. The adhesive works wonderfully and I will be ... (see full review) using these over and over again! I am hoping that Anna will now offer just the refills in a package. I don't want to have to replace the whole set, but I definitely will be up for refills! Thank you Anna!

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 ...

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 ...

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 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.

(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!

(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.
