Purex Insiders Product Review- "Spellbinders Celebra'tions" by Richard Garay

As a Purex Insider, I was chosen to try out a new product called "Spellbinders Celebra'tions" and to give a product review of the product. Spellbinders Celebra'tions provided 2 sample products for me to try out and another product for me to give away in a blog giveaway. My opinions of this product are my own. I did not receive any other compensation.
Spellbinders Celebra'tions is "a complete collection of dies, stamps, paper, inks and accessories all coordinated to work perfectly together to create one-of-a-kind cards, gifts, scrapbook layouts and more." (You can check out their creative website for the complete line of crafting projects and products that they carry.)

I received 2 different kits to put together. One was "Celebrate Party Hat Card," and the other was "Best Day Ever Treat Bag." My daughter is an avid crafter and loves to create different projects. When she saw these kits, she asked if she could do them, so I let her. I told her that I would let her help to review these, therefore, all of the statements in regards to these projects were stated by my daughter. :)

The first kit, "Celebrate Party Hat Card," was the easiest of the 2 kits, by far. However, in the kits that we were provided, the sequins for this kit were actually located in the kit for the 2nd project. My daughter enjoyed making this kit, but she said that it should have included more sticky tabs. She said that the flower on the cone does not stay stuck to the card very well, She said that the rope that came with the project was not that easy to use (and she uses a lot of ropes, threads, and cords in her crafting). She ended up not using the rope for the project because it was frustrating her.

The second kit was the "Best Day Ever Treat Bag." My daughter did NOT enjoy this project at all. Honestly, this craft's instructions are not very clear. Also, the materials for this craft are very cheap looking. It looks like someone just printed them off a printer or copied them on a machine. I would not choose to buy this kit. That is my own personal opinion though. I was not pleased with the quality or the looks of this kit. This kit did not come with the foam square sticky tabs that it was supposed to come with, so my daughter was unable to complete it the way it was intended. This kit was just a bust! She tried her best though!

The final creations are below. All in all, my and my daughter's opinions of the products that were sent to me are that they are not the best quality; however, the other products that are offered on the company's website may be a lot better. I think we will stick to the local craft and hobby shops for our supplies.
I will be giving away a Spellbinders Celebra'tions 15 piece "Many Words" clear polymer stamps set (as pictured to the left in the photo above this paragraph). To enter this giveaway simply comment below with one way that you would use these clear polymer stamps. I will randomly choose ONE winner to send this set to. Please include an email address that I can contact you at!!!
