I have never written a bad review for anything on scrapbook.com, but Doodlebug really does a questionable thing in offering these items for sale as an essentials kit! (SIDE NOTE: All items are great quality! I LOVE Doodlebug products, including the Monster Mania collection!) First of all, the picture does not match the product received. There are no Chunky Brads in the kit, though they are not listed in the description, just pictured. Secondly, the border stickers pictured are also not included with this kit. But MAINLY, the value of the current kit that you will get if ordered as of 4/24/2012, not how it is pictured on this date, is $14.32!!! So you are paying $19.99 for $14.32 in product if purchased separately (Breakdown of prices: $1.09 per sheet of paper x 4, $3.99 for Icon Stickers x 1, $1.49 for Cut Outs x 1, $1.49 for doodle pop pumpkin x 1, and $2.99 for the spidies braddies x 1=$14.32 for the contents of the kit if purchased separately).
All the products included in the current kit are available for purchase online--all except the spidies braddies are available on sb.com! SO my recommendation: SAVE YOUR MONEY!!! Purchase the items separately!!!
