My Review: I love this product!! I love the light box feature. If you use stencils a lot, or do a lot of tracing a light box is a great thing to have. I have a small one that is a rather pain to use, this one is 12×12. The templates that come with it are made of a heavy plastic and very sturdy. You do have to use light colored paper for tracing though.
I love that the sliding paper trimmer locks into place. It will definitely help with future products. I did use it to help hold the paper I was working on in place.
I will definitely buy some more brass stencils for dry embossing. I love the look and it’s very easy to do.
Here is a scrapbook page I did using the all in one craft station. I used the border template for around the title and around the journaling. I dry embossed the vellum as a picture frame. Unfortunately since it’s on vellum its hard to see. There is a template of journaling lines. I love this template! In the past I would use a template to draw lines, write my journaling, then erase the lines. With this template there is no need. I can now see the lines and write my journaling and it is in a straight line each and ever time. Such a time saver.
