Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 57 – Pop-Up Vase … The Last Box!

Welcome to the last of the original subscription boxes from Crafter’s Companion. Don’t worry, it’s not the end. Beginning in March, there will be a new subscription kit that is basically a revamped kit with more of what we’ve asked for. The kits will come in storage envelopes that will fit in a binder, there are instructions in each kit as well as video demo’s. I’m sure there are other notable changes, but that’s for my next blog post 😉.

This box includes over 200 elements and is such a fun kit because there are lots of options included. You can make a standalone vase, a pop-up vase on the front of a card or on the inside of a card, or just use the flowers on their own. You can also make any size vase based on how many extensions you choose to add. It’s very customizable. This kit includes stamps, dies, satin ribbons, pastel pearls, patterned paper, solid cardstock, card blanks and envelopes. 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.  

Besides some glue, markers and ink, I didn’t use anything that wasn’t in the box. I highly recommend watching the card demos that Craig Laird posted on the CC Box site for some fun ideas and tips on how to line up the inside bar. That was the trickiest part of the vase. Once you make one card the other cards will be super-fast to make. As for markers, I always use the Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Alcohol Markers. They are the best. They are super easy to use, blend well, and are so vibrant. For glue, I mainly 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!

Here 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 stamps and dies for different looks. 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!!
