    Crisp images, versatile sentiments (11 July 2020)

    There's no squishiness - the sentiments stamp perfectly. And they're a lot more versatile than just graduation. I've sued them for birthdays, new jobs, any time you want to give someone a pat on the back.

    So versatile! (11 July 2020)

    It's small enough to hang on my pegboard, and large enough to watercolor card fronts. I can even use the four magnets to create brackets for acrylic blocks, and re-stamp an image as often as I need to!

    Beautiful true red (11 July 2020)

    I'm still waiting for true red crystal drops. Until then, these glitter drops will do. They're stunning - Dorothy Gale would be proud!

    Beautiful designs, great color palette (25 October 2017)

    I'm all, "red-and-green," -ed out for Christmas this year. When I saw this paper from Kaisercraft, I knew what color palette I wanted for my December pages and crafts. The details on this sheet are gorgeous, and each ornament just begs to be fussy-cut.

    My only complaint is that the paper is thin. If you want to use this as a background, you'll want to mount it to cardstock. If you want to put mixed media on it, you'll need to give it a good coating of gesso.

    Excellent paper (25 October 2017)

    I love Graphic 45 papers for two reasons:

    1. They hold-up well to mixed media. This is a good, thick paper - great for distressing or tearing, or layering wet media on.

    2. I like the design aesthetic. This collection has a strong Victorian Christmas vibe.

    Bright & beautiful permanent inks (25 October 2017)

    I actually bought these inks because I'm going with a non-traditional look for my Christmas crafts. The fuschia, teal and violet have a great gemstone look. The grey is soft and muted - it almost looks like a chalk ink (your mileage may vary), to me, but without the slow dry time or water reactivity.

    Excellent waterproof ink for detailed stamping (25 October 2017)

    The colors are great for fall-themed projects. The plum tends toward a maroon color. It looks great with some wine-themed stamps. The sepia is more of a brown sepia, to me, and the coffee is more of a coffee & cream, to me, but YMMV.

    I've used these inks with some highly-detailed red rubber stamps, and the details look great.

    Very detailed, gives a great impression the first time (17 October 2017)

    I used it with the Tim Holtz stamp platform and Ranger Archival in Plum. The results are GORGEOUS. It's a little small to be a focal image on most tags (maybe a smaller ATC), but it works great as an embellishment image, or a bit of flavor to your mixed media.

    Robust and easy to use (18 July 2017)

    Full disclosure - I've never had a stamp platform before.

    It was smaller than I expected it to be (which is wonderful). I found it to be intuitive, but I have also watched videos about it and knew to check which side it was on. Swapping the acrylic lid over was simple and quick.

    It has a slim profile and a small footprint (roughly the size of an 8x8 album).

    Lovely, but tone depends on the paper color (14 February 2017)

    I've used some of the other Perfect Pearls, and this one's color is more dependent on the underlying paper color than others. It seems to tend toward a warm pale gold on a lot of papers.

    Looked like an empty bottle... (14 February 2017)

    I've never used Lindy's sprays before, or any other spray that required mixing. I'm glad I looked more closely at what I thought was an empty bottle!

    The mixing is easy. The color is stunning. I chose this one because the color of the sheen is so different from the base color. I'm a fountain pen user, and I liken it to some of those inks that produce a sheen - tilt it one way and it's a flat brown (not ugly, just, it's brown). Tilt it the other way and it's a brilliant iridescent green.

    Excellent detail (14 February 2017)

    I used it on some of my fine-detail Prima Finnabair stamps, and didn't lose a bit of the detail.

    Beautiful colors (14 February 2017)

    The iced spruce is a little more gray than I expected, but still a lovely color.

    Excellent Quality, smaller than expected (14 February 2017)

    This is not a background-sized stamp. For the price, it's an excellent value, don't get me wrong. This stamp is the perfect size to stamp a background in one of my planner squares. On a 12X12, the impression would probably get lost. It's perfect for embellishments and smaller projects, though.

    Good quality for fountain pen use (05 December 2016)

    I was really expecting a lot of bleed-through at this price point, but the paper surprised me. I've used Iroshizuku, Noodler's and Diamine inks on this notebook (in a Pilot Metro with a fine nib) and only get bleed-through where I scribble. Even then, it's just a tiny spot of bleed-through.

    The paper has tooth, so if you're looking for something like Tomoe River paper or Clairefontaine, this notebook might not work for you. If you don't mind a little feedback, and are looking for an inexpensive option that matches your Carpe Diem planner, give this one a try.

    Perfect planner for me (05 December 2016)

    The problem with the binder rings looks like it's been addressed - mine fit together fine after a couple of weeks of daily opening and closing.

    I ordered this one to replace a Heidi Swapp Memory Planner because the cover on the HS wasn't holding up to my daily use, and I wanted one with a closure snap.

    The cover is well-made, and I expect it to hold up for several years. When it gets a little ink or dirt on it, it wipes right off with a wet paper towel. The only thing that would make me happier is if the pockets on the left were a little deeper.
