This subscription is awesome! I have really enjoyed making these cards. Fun, creative and I have new stamps, inks and tools that I will use many more times.

My only issue(and it’s a small one) is that some of the smaller card stock pieces were not cut straight and true. It would not have been a big deal if I wasn’t laying on the vertical striped pink/yellow background. You could definitely tell that the piece was crooked. After trimmed it up I realized that the happy birthday stamp Would not fit on the piece so I just cut some of my own card stock. Not a big deal and I will definitely keep this subscription!

I'm very impressed by my first box from The Paper Crate. I was a little hesitant because it seemed like a lot of money, but I received enough products to create 6-8 more cards in addition to the instructions which means I can keep making the cards with my own stash.
Update: I've now received 3 boxes and haven't been disappointed yet! I'm learning new techniques and trying products I wouldn't have bought for myself (like watercolor pencils or using blending pens with ink pads).

I'm a beginner at card making, and this box is perfect. It introduces me to new tools and techniques and provides enough supplies to inspire me to try things on my own. I've tried a couple other card making subscription boxes and what sets this one apart is that it does not come with too many pre-cut parts. Instead, I get to measure and cut and paste myself. On the other hand, it doesn't come with dies that would require me to buy a fancy cutting machine. It's hits the sweet spot for a newbie like me: I get to learn techniques and I don't have to go buy additional tools in order to use items in the box. And the designs are beautiful and the directs are clear.

Myself, I was a little underwhelmed at the initial opening of the box. My grandmother loved it! The cards were just her level of difficulty. The inspiration cards were great. The ink pads we got caused bubbling or spelling on the stamps themselves. Not sure why that happened. I just wish we could find a site that has more ideas or alternatives to make with the left over material in the box. Maybe include the stamp set name to look up on Pinterest.

Good value. Artful collection of materials that relate to the season and paper/card making. Acrylic stamps, inks, adhesives, etc are quality named brands. Papers are substantial and beautifully patterned and colored. A variety of gems and enhancements will fit my creative niche. This box is indeed a good value and a quality collection.

Amazing value

This box is a huge hit. Everything you need is in there, and so many extras. My daughters were so excited they actually took my box and surprised me by making their own cards! They have learned a new hobby and are excited. How wonderful a gift to have common ground with my teens and a great way to spend time together. And I can't wait for our friends and family members to start receiving actual handmade cards! I have been terrible at sending cards, but i think this is just the new hobby that is going g to turn that around as well ad enrich family time. Order a box and you will see how much thought and time they put into making yours a special experience! Thank you!
