Hot Off The Stamping Press: MoYou London Happy Birthday Collection

Happy Friday ladies,

Well what remains of it lol.  It's a late post, but what can I say I wanted to show you the newest collection released from MoYou London today.  This time they have created a Happy Birthday Collection featuring 2 plates.  Lol I really want to be excited I do but...well I'll show you what we are working with!

The mascot for this collection is Amy from the Rebel Collection.  I have no idea what she is doing here except she is partying it up for her big day lol.  So what can I say about these plates?  Lacqueristas over here know I will never lie about my enthusiasm for a good stamping plate.  Even when I go on a gush rampage I want my readers to know when I review a product or post something new that I am giving it serious consideration i.e. is it worth my hard earned pennies, how will this fit into my 500+ plate collection, is it innovative, is it original, and if lacking originality does it make my heart race because it is just too perfect?  Yup lots of processing going on there.  The answers to all of these questions today are once again pretty disappointing.

These plates feature balloons, slices of pie, candy, presents, crowns, candles, streamers, bumpers - I've seen it all before.  I own many of these exact or similar images from other plates.  I do like the Happy Birthday to You image, birthday cake, and the balloon animal on plate 2.  The rest is pretty unoriginal (wince).  I hate to say it, but once again I walk away from a new MoYou release thinking the wow factor is totally missing.  On the plus side if you own very few plates or limited sets and are looking for birthday themed plates then look no further.  These two plates pretty much have your bases covered.  They released today and are available on the MoYou site here.  Plates retail for 4.99 Euro + shipping.  On another bit of news apparently MoYou has a whopping 70 new plates coming off the presses - which is just insane. I'm not sure how I feel about this, but hopefully MoYou gets back to doing what impressed me so much before.   Thanks for reading and see you next post!

  1. I'm also underwhelmed by this and the last few releases from Moyou. Hoping they get back to some edgier designs soon.

    1. I know - I pray this Friday isn't a huge let down :/ I'm looking forward to some of the more cutting edge stuff again as well!

  2. I just ordered this plate yesterday. I have roughly 300 plates, and surprisingly no b'day or party images, so this is a good fit for my collection

    1. Excellent! Like I said I knew this would work out for some people just not myself. And to be honest of the many many plates I have I have too many birthday themed ones to get over excited about this release, but I can see it working very well in a collection for those that don't have similar images :)
