Fashion Angels Sketch Portfolios Review and Giveaway

Formerly called The Bead Shop, Fashion Angel Enterprises has been in existance for over 10 years manufacturing fun products for "tween-age" girls. What started as a company that exclusively made bead kits and contemporary accessories has developed into a fabulous wide variety of products that I just love!

One of Fashion Angel Enterprises product lines that my readers should be familiar with are CrazErasers! CrazErasers puzzle erasers have been featured here on BizziMommi's Blog twice and are sweeping the nation! Along with CrazErasers, Fashion Angels Enterprises has recently released some amazing products for girls of any age who are interested in or enjoy sketch and design. I was excited to have the opportunity to try out three Fashion Angel Sketch Portfolios, and again I've been impressed by the products produced by this fantastic company!


I was excited when I received 3 Fashion Angels Sketch Portfolios. When I was younger I loved to design and draw. When I got my first look at these Sketch Portfolios, the first thing that came to mind was...

Why didn't they have these when I was younger?

At nearly 30 years old, I was still thrilled to have the opportunity to try out these fabulous Sketch Portfolios and share them here.

Fashion Angels Dance Star Sketch Portfolio



I liked the look of the drawings on the front cover and was excited to see that it contained 100+ stencils to help you create amazing designs. When you open the sketch book, you'll find that the first few pages of the portfolio are full colored illustrated instructions for use.



Following the instructions are ideas for designs that you can use to create clothing and accessories. I thought that this was a great idea and a good place for any girl to start before designing. There is also a page that show the color wheel and how colors can compliment each other, and also tint and shading ideas. You're designer will get a art lesson along with her sketch portfolio!

Following all this fabulous information are 7 Stencils cards for endless creations and possibilities! Over 100 Stencils in all!



The stencils are amazing and have ideas for different outfits, shirts, pants, dresses, shoes and accessories! There are also shapes and designs that you can use to decorate the clothing in your pictures or even the background! I love that the stencil cards can be pulled out of the spiral binding and replaced after you are done. I think that this was a fabulous idea that gives your child the ability to move the stencils around as needed, but replace them and keep them from getting lost when they're done drawing.

The Fashion Angel Dance Star Sketch Portfolio contains 40 dance sketch pages. Each of the pages have at least on dancer drawn on for you to start your design. The dancers only feature a face and a featureless body so you can choose their clothing, accessories, hairstyles and other features. Its really cool!


Fashion Angels Dream Wedding Sketch Portfolio
What little girl hasn't dreamed about her wedding day? Now she can design the perfect wedding with her Fashion Angels Dream Wedding Sketch Portfolio!


Your darling diva can design her dream wedding including gowns, invitations, wedding cakes, flowers and rings! How much fun is that!

In the front of the book are fully colored and illustrated directions for use.



Just like the Dance Star Sketch Portfolio, the Dream Wedding Sketch Portfolio includes swatch ideas for patterns in her designs, and also fun accessory ideas including tiaras, rings, ties, bouquets and jewelry.  There are also the color theory lessons in this book to help your designing darling learn color relationships.

Following the instructions and ideas for design in the front are 7 different removable Stencil Cards.


There are over 100 different stencils to choose from including dress designs, cake and flower stencils and so much more! Just like the stencils in the Dance Star Portfolio these stencils are easy to remove and replace when done. I love how each of the books have different color schemes so you can keep the stencils with the correct portfolio. In the Fashion Angels Dream Wedding Sketch Portfolio, you'll find 40 sketch pages in 8 different designs including cake, gowns, flowers, and more! Just like the other portfolio, the Dream Wedding sketch pages have simple outlines that give your artist a place to start their design while all of the creative designing is left completely up to them!


 Fashion Angels Interior Design Sketch Portfolio

Girls of all ages dream about having the perfect space or room. Now your amazing artist can design her perfect space, her dream room, furniture and floor plans with the Fashion Angels Interior Design Sketch Portfolio!


The Fashion Angel Interior Design Sketch Portfolio is perfect for the girl who loves to change her room around. Think of the endless possibilities she will be able to create with this amazing sketch porfolio! This sketch portfolio is set up just a little differently than the first two portfolio described in this post. In the front of the book it has instructions for use but also encourages your designing diva to come up with an inspiration for their room before beginning.


After the instructions it includes the swatches for patterns that you can create to decorate your furniture or walls of your space. There is also an accessories page, but it includes windows and lighting ideas instead of jewelry or scarves! This sketch portfolio also includes the color theory lesson that shows the relationships between colors and ideas for tints and shades. There is also an extra page the shows different ways to design a room from a birds eye view, or from a blue prints take on the project. I love that there are so many different ways to design with this sketch portfolio!

Of course included in the Fashion Angels Interior Design Sketch Portfolio and 7 stencil cards with over 100 stencils that you can use to design furniture, windows, lighting and accessories! Its really cool!


The possibilities are endless when using these fun stencils and your sketch portfolio! The Fashion Angels Interior Design Sketch Portfolio contains 40 sketch pages. The sketch pages are come in 6 styles for your child to use to make their creations! Be prepared to be blown away by the amazing designs your child will create with the Interior Design Sketch Portfolio!

~~~~~~
All three of the Sketch Portfolios are recommended for ages 6 and up, but I personally think that girls from ages 10 and up will get the most use out of these amazing books. I would recommend using a large pack of freshly sharpened colored pencils for all three of these books. This will give your child a lot of choices for coloring in their designs and using the colored pencils will allow your child to make the small details that much more precise. I had a FABULOUS time sketching in all three of these portfolios as I can bet any mother and daughter would too! I would recommend these fabulous sketch portfolios to girls of any age who enjoy design and drawing.

Because of the creativity that these books inspire, Fashion Angels Sketch Portfolios have been named to...

BizziMommi's Blog Top Toys and Children's Products of 2010

You can find these amazing Sketch Portfolios at online retailers such as Amazon.com as well as other local retailers. Each of the Fashion Angel Sketch Portfolios retail for about $15, which is an amazing price for such a great product.

  59. naturally like your website however you have to test the spelling on quite a
    few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very
    bothersome to inform the truth on the other hand I will
    definitely come again again.

  60. Far too many children become the victims of abuse, neglect,
    or abandonment and then sadly, often they become wards of the court who will eventually determine their
    fate. " Earlier today some cruise ship struck land in Alaska. All kinds of sports news today are offered live through the television.
