I cannot believe this is the 12th subscription box already! This month’s kit is a unique stamp and die kit that leaves the florals and butterflies in the page after you have die cut them. There are so many different things you can do with these popped up images and you still have the option to cut them fully out just like a normal die cut. Let’s take a look at what is in this month’s kit…
Sara Davies, the owner of Crafter’s Companion, has really packed this subscription box with so much cuteness! The May box has over 225 elements!!! Included are clear stamps, metal dies, colored cardstock, ribbons, pearls, 24 cards in several sizes with coordinating envelopes, and a small pot of superfine glitter. My kit was delivered with auto-ship through HSN as always. You can check out Crafter’s Companion website for more information. This kit is truly a wonderful bargain. Each kit offers different items and will show you new techniques.
There is a Facebook group that you can join once you subscribe which provides lots of community support and loads of examples; plus, Sara also has a monthly card kit site that you can refer to for demos/project pages.
In addition to this kit, I did use a few extra items from Crafter’s Companion. All of the inks used were Spectrum Noir Harmony inks. I also used some patterned paper from previous kits, aqua markers and some white embossing powder. To secure my projects, I used a combination of glue tape adhesive and collall wet glue for most of the projects, but I also used a 3-D silicon glue to help raise some of my elements. Crafter’s Companion sells a 3-D glue gel that adds dimension depending on how thick you lay it on. I highly recommend this glue!!! I would also recommend the Crafter’s Companion glass mat. It is a true game changer. Once you work on a glass surface you will agree!
Here’s a quick video I put together with my makes so far. I have so many more materials left that I will definitely get more than 24 cards out of this kit.
You will notice for some of the cards I used the dies as originally intended which is to stay partially attached to the paper, while for others I snipped the back where they were attached and used them as self standing die cuts. Here is a closer look at the cards:
I hope you enjoyed my creations with this kit. I have lots more cards to make with my remaining kit. I’d love to see what you create too so please feel free to share!
