Take a closer look at Stampin' Up!'s Acrylic Blocks - A Review

Acrylic Block Set by Stampin' Up! - comprises of nine, good quality blocks named A-I to fit all stamps

What's so special about Stampin' Up!'s Acrylic Blocks?? 
When I first discovered Stampin' Up! the last thing I wanted to do was spend money on tools. They're boring, right?

I wanted to spend my money on the latest Stampin' Up! Stamp Sets, Ink, Papers, and Ribbons. I wasn't fussed about the bone folders, the Adhesives, or the array of Tools Stampin' Up! had to offer.

I went out to the nearest home department store and bought the cheapest tools I could find, including a set of acrylic blocks. They were super cheap, and excitedly, I loaded my basket up.



Very quickly I realised that the blocks I bought were difficult to hold, and were often ruining my projects when my fingers got caught in the ink. In my frustration my enthusiasm started to wane. Maybe I wasn't good at this crafting malarkey, I thought, and even when I finally designed a card that I loved, I'd go through tons of cardstock trying to create it without fingerprints and smudges.

I then went back to the Stampin' Up! catalogue and looked at their Acrylic Blocks. Yes, they were a bit more pricey, but they looked so much better. I invested in a set (and a few extras!) and have never looked back.

What are the best things about Stampin' Up! Acrylic Blocks?

* Ergonomic - shaped to fit in your hand, their bevelled edge gives good grip
* High Quality - still look like new after thousands of uses
* Labelled for Reference - correspond to catalogue and stamp boxes
