I have to be honest and say that I'm kind of scared of rubons. But I have only heard good things about Studio Calico's-- and of course I love pretty much everything they produce!

I really do like to use rubons. When they first came out, I was a bit afraid of them but now there are some companies out there that make some really good ones.

Abby said...

Love them! I'm not much of a cardmaker, so the lack of sentiments wouldn't be much of an issue for me. I love the birdies, woodgrain, and the cameras. Too cute! I, too, wish I could find them locally.

Love how there is just one color to most of these. This makes them very easy to add to existing stash.
Nice to see basic designs for us gals that are not too fussy!

Thanks - it is always helpful to know which rub ons work well. I love that hese Designs are so versatile for male or female pages and cards.

CuddlyBunny said...

I usually forget to use rub ons!

Maybe you could let us know, though if you ever find some "negative" rub ons ... with backwards letters, etc., so they could be applied to the back of acrylics, fragments or Memory Glass?

Then, when attached to a card, the rub on phrase or image would be legible/visible behind a little "window." :)

Lisa G. said...

thanks for the review and a chance to win some goodies!
