I bought two of these -the Green at Heart and the Capella kits. I opened them right when I got them to see what was inside.

Pros: The layouts are adorable! You get a full sheet of chipboard accents and a full sheet of rub-ons. It's all stuff available with the line, but combined into one sheet/piece so that there are no leftovers. You also get a few sheets of punchouts. These are as simple as a square of PP you punch out to add, or a 1/2 wide piece of stripe PP so they don't have to cut it out of a full sheet for the kit, or a title, accent, etc. As far as I can tell, the instructions are great. They are in b&w, but the front of the kit has LARGE color photos of the layouts so it's not a big deal.

Cons: Most of the layering and whatnot of the various PPs is printed on the page you use :? I was hoping to change the LOs slightly to fit with the pictures I wanted to use, but this makes it harder. Also, they only give you the exact title they used - so there are no extra letters if you want to change it.

All in all, cute and great for the projects I bought them for, but the lack of versatility may make me hesitate in the future to purchase these unless I can use them as-is :D

Thanks for the review - I find the "title" thing to be good & bad. If my pics fit the title, I love the convenience. But it they don't, I find it to be a problem too!
