Chelsea's Place Review

I picked up some of the Chelsea's Place collection from Michaels recently. The retail price was $12.99, but I used a 40% off coupon for mine. The above photo, that I took from Michaels sight, shows the line minus the shaped papers. There were 2 packs of paper. I bought the one of specialty papers. The color scheme is fun and I love that the papers all have something special about them. Each sheet is either die cut, glittered or flocked. They are heavy weight patterned papers. So, the papers definitely get a thumbs up.

I also brought home the die cut chipboard letters. They have cute patterns spread randomly through the alphabet. One of the reasons I got them was because I thought they were going to be self adhesive. There is a light adhesive on them that didn't work at all. I placed them on the page and they fell off as soon as I picked up the layout. I ended up using a little liquid adhesive on them to make them stick. The package isn't labeled as self adhesive, but looks like other chipboard letters that are, so I assumed. The fonts are cute though, so I give them a thumbs up as well.

The first layout and the card show the green scalloped paper that is in the paper kit. The second layout uses the scalloped round paper and the embossed red and blue paper.

Isn't this stuff gorgeous?! I saw it yesterday and almost bought the shaped pack of papers at regular price but decided to wait. I almost bought the buttons too, but passed on them as well.

I went back today and they were ON SALE so I got the paper and buttons for less than full paper price.

These are SO Pretty! I didn't even recognize them as the papers on your blog until I opened them and saw the green scallop.

Love what you've done with them.
