Posting the December kit on December 31 is cutting it close to the wire, but I made it! It’s been such a busy month, but I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to post because this kit is truly wonderful! This kit has a lot of generic items that will be useful all year long and it features bubble/balloon letters! So fun! This kit is filled with lot’s of great items so let’s take a look at what is in this month’s kit…
Sara Davies, the owner of Crafter’s Companion, has given you so much in this kit to make truly beautiful cards. The December kit includes over 330 elements in total! You will get 4 metal dies, 37 clear acrylic stamps, ribbon, 100 adhesive pearls, 100 adhesive gems, 24 sheets of patterned paper, 24 sheets of solid paper, 4 types of bakers twine, 9 pieces of color coordinated ribbon, and 18 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 and project pages.
In addition to this kit, I used several sheets of Crafter’s Companion Stamping Card. This is a very heavy weight white cardstock that is excellent for stamping and also can be used for layers or card blanks. I used Spectrum Noir Water Color Inks, Matte Mirror Cardstock, and a clear sparkle pen. 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!
This kit is just so much fun – I will definitely use these stamps and dies in the future. Please let me know if you have any questions and I would love to see what you create, so please feel free to share!
I would like to thank you all for your support and I wish you all a Happy and Healthy new year in 2020!! Happy Crafting!!
