This box was definitely more of a challenge than some in the past. The good thing is that there are tons of options with this box, but you have to have a little creativity and some planning. The dies are “interchangeable” meaning you can use any combination or just one. This box includes over 200 elements, and will make 18+ cards. It includes metal dies, stamps, cards, card blanks, envelopes, colored and patterned paper, dew drops and ribbons. The patterned paper is really beautiful. 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, I really did not add much else outside of this 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 for ink blending. Once you work on a glass surface you will agree!
Below are the cards I made and I still have lots more materials from this box to make even more cards! Let me know which you like best…..
I hope you have fun with this kit. Mix and match the dies for different looks. Also remember to ink the edges of your layers 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!!
