I'm watching the scrap fest going on at HSN tonight and wondering if all those stickers and paper you get in the tsv are quality stuff or just junk I'll never use. They make it look so cute tho! Are you getting it?

Are you talking about the 3 Birds Exscrapaganza? That's a little too much glitter for me. But you get SO much stuff I definitely think you will get your money's worth.

I was thinking the same thing. I finally decided that I probably would only use a very small portion of it so I'm NOT getting it. It would be a great deal for someone just starting out though! Lots of stuff!!

I'm passing on it. It looked a little cheap to me. I've yet to see a kit with a huge number of pieces, like the 2400 there, that are worth anything. Just my opinion.

I have some of those (don't faint girls at the *s* word) We R Memory Keepers embossed stickers and they are adorable for kid's pages.

I have it in my shopping bag right now, still trying to decide. I think I will end up getting it. I think the owl stuff is adorable & I have the perfect pictures to go with the fish theme.
I'm sure I won't use every single piece, but if I purchased the paper by the sheet, it would add up to $40 pretty fast.

So, I caved and decided to get it...I liked the chipboard stickers and thought, well, if it's cheap, I'll just send it back or let my kids play with it! It would make some cute cards I thought, and for the price....I got some of those "prima like" flowers too! LOL...like I need them!

Not quite my style but it seems like a good deal. I was looking on the site and didn't see anything really amazing must have great price.

Not to change the subject, but I saw on QVC where Cosmo Cricket had a 9000+ piece kit, including 2 8x8 albums and a LOT of alphas and chipboard. I picked it up, and I think it'll be great for gifts. I just had to pick up something that had 9000+ pieces.

As for the today's special, I'm not sure. I like a few of the 3 Birds items, but they're not really my style. Never seen them IRL before, and I think I'd have to before committing.

I got the Cosmo Kit and I love it. I'm getting so many projects done with this kit. I'm not sure about the kit on HSN either.

I think it's worth the money but I have enough stuff so I"m passing. AT least their count of how many items doesn't include sheets of alpha stickers where each letter makes up the majority of the # of items.

My experience with buying those large quantity items is that I rarely use half of it, so I try to find a couple other scrapping friends who'd like to split it 3 ways. Otherwise I don't buy it!!

I've found 3Birds packages their products in very cute containers. I didn't get this TSV but it did look nice. I bought the Petaloo glitter flowers. Remember, if you order online, you don't pay sales tax on HSN unlike QVC.
