This month’s card kit is super fun and it is Cute as a Button!! The stamps included are adorable and have centers that fit all sorts of buttons. Let’s take a look at what is in this month’s kit…
Sara Davies, the owner of Crafter’s Companion, has given you just about everything you need to make truly beautiful cards. The August kit includes over 435 elements in total! You will get 3 metal dies, 300 buttons (yes 300), 40 clear acrylic stamps, 24 sheets of patterned paper, 24 sheets of solid paper, and 24 card blanks in three different sizes with coordinating envelopes. 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 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. I used some twine, a few photo corners and sequins along with Spectrum Noir Harmony inks. To secure my projects, I mainly used collall wet glue, 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 are a few of the cards I made from this kit…….
There are still so many stamps that I have not tried yet, but I am sure I will be making more from this kit soon! Please share with me any questions and I would love to see what you create too so please feel free to share! Happy Crafting!!
