Default Luxury Card stk

Think it's a brilliant idea to have the three finishes in the same color... luving the mat finish especially. Having said that, my target price for specialty is .10-15 cents per sheet. I fell off of my chair when the price tag for the 150 sheets was $80. Totally not happening..... 50/50 Friday - nope, not then either.

as far as the 'new' cutting dies... super useful if you don't already have the everyday words (anyone?). I think they're a little late ('course those can also be shopped elsewhere).

card design/projects not terribly impressive either - nothing 'fresh' that I noticed.

What did you guys think? Do you have 'ballpark' prices for materials?
It aint a great buy unless you use it,

I also fell off my chair for the price for of the HD Luxury cs. It is beautiful etc, but I'm with you- not happening.

Loved the card stock and the three finishes but YIKES! I don't have that kind of money to spend on card stock. I bought the Christmas words at GG but really don't need the other words either but I think the idea is that they match the word dazzles.
Enjoy your day,

I didn't sleep much last night, but I got a few solid hours of overthinking done...

I love the cardstock with the three finishes but definitely pricey. Like the word dies too but sure don't need any more of those!

Same as everyone else here, wow expensive!! I won't get those word dies either. Hopefully next week will bring something new and interesting to us all.

I got several of the papers on another event day back in October or November if you know what I mean...they are very nice. The best thing about them is that you are able to die cut the glitter papers. Often glitter is very hard to die cut. I believe there were 30 or 40 sheets in each pack. I did buy them separately - not all in one package.
