Hey there, friends! I have some exciting news to share with you. I have been asked to be a Brand Ambassador for Carson-Dellosa throughout this school year. This means that I will be giving you very honest reviews of some of their products every few months and also providing giveaways here and there! What I am most excited about is the fact that Carson-Dellosa really cares what WE as TEACHERS like and dislike about a product. I'm hoping by being a Brand Ambassador, I can help you decide which items you should invest in and which items you could pass on.
This review was quick & easy the minute I opened up the package. What is there not to love about the colors in this set? Black & bright colors are all of the rage and this set does not disappoint.
Here are a few of my personal & honest opinions.
1. Quick and easy to punch out! This calendar was probably the easiest calendar I have ever had my hands on! And trust me, I have about 6 different calendars stashed in my cabinet at school.
2. The letters are PREPUNCHED! Yes, you heard me right! Open up the package and BAM, you are ready to go. I would suggest purchasing 2-3 sets if you plan on using the letters for your classroom boards. But, it is easy to see exactly how many of each letter are provided on the cover.
3. I love the straight borders because they are easy peasy to put up. I was a tad worried about getting the pattern on this set to line up correctly, but it honestly was the easiest border I have put up. I really feel that the designer considered the pattern and how to make it work so it is quick & easy. I did not have to cut any section to get the pattern to line up, which of course saved me much valuable time.
4. Did you notice that the calendar has a spot for you to simply write the current month? Umm...this is genius in my mind. If you are anything like me, you stick the month signs in a "special" spot, but then when it comes to a new month..that special spot is extremely hidden.
This set would look great on many different shades of paper, but check out how fantastic it looks on black!
