Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 48 – Say It With Flowers

This is a pretty simple set overall, but I feel like the cards I made came out extra special. I am not sure if it was the pretty wood grain papers (that’s my style) or the fact that the kit was more simple and it gave me time to focus on the basics. In any case, I am really happy with the way these cards turned out. This box includes over 195 elements, and will make 16+ cards. It includes metal dies, stamps, cards, stencils, card blanks, envelopes, colored and patterned paper, pearls and ribbons. Everything you need. You can check out the subscription box site for the unboxing and a few demos – Crafters Companion Box site.

Sara Davies, the owner of Crafter’s Companion, always puts together a fun kit that is packed with lots of crafty items and new techniques. My kit was delivered with auto-ship through HSN as always.  You can check out Crafter’s Companion website for more information.  This kit, as always, is a wonderful bargain. 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.  

Other than some inks and a few pieces of cardstock that I used to mat and layer, I really did not add much else (I think I did use one stamp sentiment outside of the kit). For glue, I used a combination of tape pen (runner) and I used collall wet 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!

Below are all the cards as well. I still have lots more materials from this box to make even more cards! Let me know which you like best…..

Quick tip: cut the banner die in half and let the left and right side overlap to make it look like it is a shadow die. In reality, there is a gap behind the sentiment in the center but you cannot see it!
I kept this one simple – and it just works. I only inked the patterned paper edges slightly for some interest. The white flowers look elegant.
By adding the “Thank You” repeatedly to the background, it really changed up the look of the card. This is basically the same layout as the first card, but to me, it looks so different.

I hope you have fun with this kit. Mix and match the flowers, the colors, etc. for different looks. Also remember to ink the edges of the patterned paper to give it more depth and you can change the color scheme that way too. Let me know if you have any questions, and I would love to see what you create so please feel free to share! Happy Crafting!!
