Goodies & Review

Hi, everyone! was kind enough to send a few goodies my way to review and make a few cards with.  You may have found my blog through my YouTube video featuring some of these products.  If so, welcome! If you have not seen that video, please click HERE, and you will see some of these products in action.

Here are the cards I made using some of these products!

These are the products that sent me for a review! Affiliate links are provided below if you are interested in any of these products.  Affiliate links are used to support this blog and my YouTube channel at no cost to you by clicking them while you shop!

Thinlit Dies

The wafer thin dies are of excellent quality.  I used the Nested Star dies to make my card featured in my video. Using these, I experienced no issues with warping or bending. I will use the Nested Flowers in a different video soon!

Acrylic Block

I am a firm believer that you can never have enough acrylic blocks.  But I also believe they must be of excellent quality.  The acrylic block provided to me is EXCELLENT! It is thick, solid, and has grid lines! It has notches in the sides, so your fingers naturally fit around the block. I have big man hands, and I like blocks this thick because my fingerprints aren’t all over the card while stamping.  These blocks may be a bit bulky for individuals that may have arthritis or other hand sensitivities.

Black Premium Dye Ink

I am also a firm believer that you can never have enough black ink pads.  I think right now in my stash I have about ten different ones.  The ink pad provided by is pretty fantastic, and I would suggest purchasing it.  The ink is solid, and it gave a good crisp impression the first time as you can see in my video.  I will be reaching for this ink in the future.

Adhesive Glue Tape

The adhesive glue tape is good.  I rank it along with others, nothing special about it.  It glides well, and I didn’t experience any clogging or tearing.


All in all the products provided me to me by were of high quality and great value. I have ordered many supplies of my own from them and enjoy their customer service and quick mailing times. I would love to hear what you think about their products and services.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me! Please see the links below for these products!

Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 112

Hi, everyone! I hope you have had a great week so far!

This entry is going to be really quick.  I have to prepare my craft room to be a guest bedroom for my crafty friend Melinda to visit.  We are headed to the Schaumburg Scrapbook Expo, and we are super excited! Bring on the shopping list!

This weeks challenge was travel.  This card is one layer and super basic. Like REAL basic! I am sorry I have to go to quickly, but if you have any questions regarding the technique, please reach out to me. I would be more than happy to let you know what I used!


Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge 111.

Hello, everyone! It is nice to be back doing a challenge. I was on vacation in Florida for the last two challenges so couldn’t have fun making cards! The sunshine was great and the time with friends was better!

This weeks challenge was THE BEACH! Where I have been for almost two weeks! What better way to come back!

My card this week is Lawn Fawntastic! All the products are from Lawn Fawn.  I am not going to list the products, but if you have questions, please let me know.  Actually, I may have lied a little, the ocean wave paper is from MFT! Anyway, message me if you have questions about the products I used.

Here is my card!
