Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 9 – February 2019

This month's kit is jam packed with embossing folders! I think this kit is so much fun and, for me, a great reminder of some of my early cards (thankfully much improved these days). There are several types of embossing folders included and many great videos on the subscription site that cover embossing, debossing and … Continue reading Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 9 – February 2019

Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 8 – January 2019

Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 7 – December 2018

This month's kit (drumroll please......) is all about circle die cutting!!  If you have been crafting for a while, I bet these types of dies were probably one of the first you used.  Actually, I have layering dies in circles, squares, rectangles, hearts and lots more.  But, I will tell you, I  don't use them … Continue reading Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 7 – December 2018

Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 6 – November 2018

This month's kit is all about aqua (watercolor) markers.  The November subscription box is great for new and experienced crafters. Watercolor is so popular but not easy for everyone unless there are color coded numbers on the page telling you what color to use.  For me, when I watercolor, I love experimenting with different backgrounds … Continue reading Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 6 – November 2018

Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 5 – October 2018

Well wonder no more - … Continue reading How To Create Masks for Your Cards

Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 4 – September 2018

Back to school means schedules and homework and dance classes ..... and less time for crafting!  I saw that box 5 has been shipped so I quickly opened box 4!  I have to say, I was a bit intimidated when I opened the box and saw the intricate die included. I was afraid to actually … Continue reading Crafter’s Companion Subscription Box 4 – September 2018
