I received mine today and here is what was in the box:

Creative Supplies Self-Adhesive Pearls - Pink

Creative Supplies Self-Adhesive Pearls - Cream

Creative Embossing Cascading Collection 5x7 Embossing Folder - Sprinkles

Apple Blossom Craft Collection Build-a-Cake die set

Fuzzy Lemon Fairground Horse die

Apple Blossom Craft Collection Floral Branch Border die set

Apple Blossom Craft Collection Vintage Fashion Outline Die Set

Apple Blossom Craft Collection Vintage Fashion stamp set

Creative Stamps Bold Sentiments stamp set

The box also had a 8 page double sided paper pack similar to their special edition magazine papers in but to be perfectly honest I do not feel particularly inspired and if I had to go to Craft Stash I would not have bought these items.  It comes to a total of £57.91.  Now it would not be fair to criticise without say what I think could have been done better.  I believe that if the collection had a theme and everything matched into this theme it would have provided me with more inspiration and maybe they could have included the lovely Apple Blossom Fairground Birthday die Christina use in her video.  Another thing that left me a bit disappointed is the fact that new and exclusive products was promised in the kit but have seen all of the product, except the paper pack obviously, on the craft stash some months ago already.  As far as the paper pack is concerned I really think that a better quality and weight paper would have been better and the pearls should at least have matched the paper pack but the pink pearls are fairly bright and vibrant and the papers muted, maybe even a little dull.  

Sorry Practical Publishing did not "hit the Spot" with this selection but, hopefully they will learn and the box will get better.  Below you can see the papers.

Christina from or made this inspirational video and will have some samples up on her blog using these items soon and I hope that they will inspite me even if only a little bit.
