SAM_0361

This 12 roll set is fantastic and I am not just saying that because I love washi tape. This set features a rainbow of bright colors and designs and  no boring solids even!

Each roll came individually wrapped, great for keeping dust and dirt away til your ready to use, or if you want to share and gift a few rolls. These are standard size rolls like you find in a craft store. Approx 10 meters of tape (over 33 ft!) on each roll on a cardboard roll. so these will last you awhile.

The tape itself is a masking tape, not typical paper washi tape. This means that it is easily removable and re-positions well. It can be used on a variety of surfaces and won’t ruin them when removed!  Its still sticky but I don’t find it as sticky as the paper kind. Which is great if you want to remove. It tears easily which I really like so I’m not constantly looking for scissors.

This set has such a great variety of colors and designs. And I love that there are no solids. The colors are really bright and vibrate! My favorite is the Ombre Orange/Blue! I have alot of washi tape but this is my first roll with an ombre look. The yellow is hard to see but it has little flowers and bows on it! The details of each roll are beautiful and I have loved using them. And this company is another awesome company that offers 100% guarantee! (We know I love companies like that, but I know you won’t need that since these tapes are awesome!) If you would like to learn more of purchase your own set click here.

This is a great set if you are looking for a wide variety of patterns/colors as it really does have a rainbow of variety and I love how bright each roll is! Most of them are Geometric patterned (arrows, circles, stars, dots, zig zags, lines) and then you have a plain green. which matches nicely with the grey dot pattern and the red/green striped pattern. The yellow star roll the stars are actually clear so you will get the color of whatever you use the tape on.
The rolls are great sized (about the same as the stores) they come on a cardboard base and you get 10 meters of tape (about 33 ft) which is average for washi tape. These are actually more of a masking tape and not as much of a paper tape but they still tear very easily by hand if you don’t have scissors near.
I did find that these are a little less sticky then other brands I have used and also less sticky then regular washi tape that is more paper like. Which is why the masking tape ones are much better for walls, or projects that you would like to remove the tape. All my projects are paper based so I do not know how well they remove from other surfaces.
The rolls come individually wrapped which I love to prevent dirt and dust from sticking, and its nice if you want to keep a few rolls and share a few. And they all come in a cute see-thru box.

Color with Music by Newbourne Media

ADULT COLORING BOOK: Biblical Images & Themes Stress Relieving Designs Includes Bonus Relaxation CD: Color With Music Paperback by Newbourne Media

SAM_0208

I am sure by now you have seen or heard of Adult Coloring Books, they are everywhere! I am a huge fan of them and have a whole bunch of them. I have always enjoyed coloring since I was a child. Its fun, relaxing and something the whole family can do. So when adult coloring books because a trend I was an instant follower!

This coloring book has a bonus, it took coloring 1 step up. First off I went with the biblical images coloring book, although there is a great selection of books to choose from. I really enjoy coloring because I find it calming and peaceful and that is where the bonus part of this coloring book comes in. It comes with a cd! The cd features 10 tracks totaling approx 56 mins of soft calming, instrumental, piano, nature type music that you can listen to while you are coloring to help relieve stress and stay calm. The music is lovely and is very soothing.

The book is square 8×8, opening on the top and bottom. There is 48 beautiful pages from crosses, words, stain glass images etc. and also has a variety of easy and hard to color pages. All images are single sided and tear off top easily. I said TOP! This is a great coloring book for left handed people like myself! It also has a cardboard flap that you can put under your page as you color to prevent color bleed through if you happen to be using markers or pens. The paper is not flimsy or cheap its a beautiful bright white and printed well. I plan on coloring some and framing them to hang around the house.

Floral Washi by Gambi Paper Co

Japanese WASHI Colored Paper Masking Tape – Floral Design – Set of 10 – Scrapbooking, Arts and Crafts, Kid-Friendly by Gambi Paper Co

SAM_0165.JPG

I’m pretty sure my new life goal is to have a room dedicated to Washi Tape. I seriously can’t get enough of this stuff!

This set is wonderful! You get 10 rolls, all individually wrapped, and presented in a nice slide box with a clear lid. Great for gift giving or keeping on your desk if you don’t have a million other rolls like I do.

Each roll is on a smaller cardboard base, you get a great amount of tape (10 meters approx 33 feet) the rolls are similar to a lot of the ones you would find in craft stores. The washi tape itself sticks nicely, remember this isn’t regular tape it is a paper tape so much thinner. It is easy to rip so you don’t need scissors unless you want a clean line look.

And variety, I love this set because of all the different options you get, from sprinkles, hearts, dots, lines and flowers you won’t get bored with this set! Most of the patterns are semi clear, so if you use them on colored paper you get something different! The pink roll is hard to see but it is an outline of hearts, but the hearts are clear. There is also a great mix of bright colors and pastels. Most washi tape sets I have seen are limited to a color theme, this one is a great variety!

UCEC Golden Eagle Scissors

UCEC Golden Eagle Scissors – Great for Stitch,DIY Supplies – Pack of 12 by UCEC

SAM_0144.JPG

I had a friend introduce me to this style of sewing scissors last year and they have been my favorite style since! And not because I sew, because the only time you will see me sewing is with a needle and thread fixing a tiny hole in a pair of pants. Anyways.. I love my scissors my friend gave me because they are super sharp, great at cutting in small spaces and I love how you hold these! I am actually left handed but in school I always had to use my right hand to cut because there was never left handed scissors. I’m actually ambidextrous now. So I was excited to see how these compared to the pair my friend gave me that I love and treat like gold 🙂

So at first when I got these I was kind of disappointed. They arrived nicely in plastic, each scissor had its own little slot. So I go to take out a pair and they are greasy or oily or something! I was grossed out and didn’t understand WHY they would put oil on something made to cut fabric/paper wouldn’t that get all over the items and make a mess?. My husband explained to me that the oil was to keep the blades from rusting. Which made complete sense!! And clearly I wasn’t going to be using all 12 scissors at once. Although I do plan on keeping a few around the house since they are handy! I do recommend that before you use a pair of these that you do wipe the blades with a tissue or rag.

The scissors are about 4 inches long. The blades are great, nice and sharp and made of metal. The handle part isn’t as great of quality as some others, these happen to be made of plastic. I have had one pair already break at the plastic part in half. But I’ve been using it all week and pretty much for everything so I was rough on it. But for the price and how many you get I still think this is a great deal.

I love these for trimming my nail wraps because they cut really smoothly. I mainly used the scissors to cut paper, thick paper, tape, bubble wrap. I love these for crafting since they are small it makes it easier to get close to were you want to cut. I’m sure these would work great for cutting fabric, and lots of other items!

Washi Tape by Sandman Crafts

SAM_0131.JPG
Washi Tape is becoming so popular, if you don’t know about it you are clearly missing out! I am addicted to it! (Like hard core addict I have hundreds of rolls and I’m sure you will be seeing quite a few review posts in the future because I don’t know how to say no to more haha!)  It can be used for so much, crafts, scrapbooking, decorating notebooks, planners, pens, anything!! My favorite way to use it to seal envelopes that I mail out for my business or to my friends because fun and pretty mail is just better! And these washi tapes are adorable!
Sandman Washi
You get a wonderful variety, flamingos, pineapple, burgers, lips, mermaid scale pattern and my favorite “you are my sunshine”. As far as colors go, the listing is described as “vibrant” but I would say these are more of pastel vs bright. But they do still show up nicely on a white background. The color is a tiny bit harder to see on some of them if you use it on a more colorful surface. The rolls come in a cute decorated ziplock type bag. The rolls are cardboard and alot wider then the typical ones I have found in stores. Each roll has 5 meters (approx 16+ ft) of tape which is a decent size. The width is a little over 1/2 an inch which is the size of most of my other washi tapes.It was super easy to get off the roll. It is like a paper tape so you can just rip it off or use scissors if you prefer and it stuck really nicely to paper/envelopes when I used it. These weren’t part of amazon prime but they did include free shipping and the wait wasn’t long at all. I ordered on a Monday afternoon and had them by Friday. And as always this company gets a bonus point for having a Satisfaction Guarantee because I feel that is important to stand behind your product!
