I am keeping this for the patterns but am quite grateful I did not buy at full price as it is not what I expected. If you are new to cardmaking, the fact that everything is laid out step by step will prove helpful. Perhaps I am more disappointed in the style of the cards than anything else; I recommend trying to check out of the library before investing in this one.
