Elmers & X-acto

I have been doing BzzAgent for a couple years now & I finally got a crafting campaign! I was sent this assortment from them for review so here it is.
From X-acto I got a corner rounder and 2 pair of scissors. I like all three of them. The corner rounder cuts great and is so easy to use. The scissors are scalloped and zig-zag. It's been a while since I've used deco scissors. I like these ones better than the shorter ones I have. I actually used them on a couple cards :)
From Elmer's there was a tape runner, glue stick. glue spots, and a glue pen. The tape runner in the package was the worst. It didn't run, only made an occasional step. I still used it all but not in the way it was intended. I had to take out the spool and use it like a roll of tape. I read comments from other BzzAgents about the tape runner. Most loved it. There were only a couple of people that had trouble with getting it to work right. I've used the glue stick and glue pens from Elmer's before and I like them both. The glue pen is double ended with rubber tips, one wide & the other narrow. I like the rubber tips because it gives me the ability to spread the glue as I use it. The glue spots worked out well. The only thing I don't like is the way they're packages. I'm used to having spots on a roll instead of a sheet. But I still like them.

American Crafts...MINIs

miniMARKS-accents book 3, spring & summer book 2
matchtone scrapbook stickers
matchtone patterned cardstock.

I came across some American Crafts paper, stickers, and miniMARKS. I thought they would make some cute mini cards and made these 2 sets. I'll definitely be making more of them because they're fun, quick, & easy.
