on my desk: wood veneer enamel dots and chipboard hearts and stars

Hi everyone!
Today I thought I would do a little product review and comparison. First up are the new wood dots -- woodgrain enamel dots from Studio Calico and wood veneer dots from My Mind's Eye (Just Splendid line).

The wonderful wood veneer dots are by Gennifer Bursett -- I had the wrong designer name! I'm sorry, Gennifer, (and Jen!). I should have checked before speaking, and film before throwing away packaging!! :)

(Featuring products: Studio Calico Essentials woodgrain enamel dots; Studio Calico Essentials wood veneer stars; Studio Calico Essentials red and pink chipboard stars; Studio Calico Essentials blue and aqua chipboard stars; Studio Calico Essentials woodgrain chipboard stars; Studio Calico Essentials red and pink chipboard hearts; Studio Calico Essentials blue and aqua chipboard hearts;  Studio Calico Essentials woodgrain chipboard hearts; Studio Calico Essentials cork stars; Jenni Bowlin Studio gold scattered stars rub-ons; Jenni Bowlin Studio insta-frames wood veneer; Jenni Bowlin Studio Chalkboard II Flatback.)

Here are a couple of close ups. You can see the My Mind's Eye wood veneer dots are real wood. The enamel dots from Studio Calico have a nice woodgrain pattern under the epoxy. I love that each set are such different colours and finish... makes it very necessary to have both sets, just in case one colour suits your project better than the other!

A few other favourites... 
Some great Jenni Bowlin Studio products. These insta-frames are very cool... I love that they are plain in the center but have a frame print burned into the edges. I think they'll be perfect with a little journalling block, short title, or embellishment cluster placed on top, don't you? 
And my inner science geek who misses her old life very much sometimes, fell so SO hard for those Jenni Bowlin Studio chalkboard flair. Perfection, as far as I'm concerned. 

Stars, and hearts -- oh, my!
Chipboard and wood, and rub-ons -- oh, my!

What have you bought recently that you love? Or have you found something in your stash that you've fallen in love with all over again?
