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!
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.
I really have nothing bad to say about my experience with The Paper Crate for the last 6+ months. I adore the things they send, I love the experience, it's worth every penny. The instructions walk you through creating 4 cards every month and highlight a new technique that you can then use to make at least a dozen more cards using the extra paper and tools you just learned how to use. So the stuff you get is easily worth the price, and you learn something new! In my opinion, priceless. I will continue subscribing to The Paper Crate.
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!
Wendy, that is so awesome that your daughters got involved and found a new hobby. It is always great to read feedback like yours.
I just received my first order, and I must say I was in awe of all the great goodies included for my first month. After looking at every item, I just stared at the quality and fun items, which were created to keep me cardmaking and more. Thank you so much, and I cannot wait for next month's box.
Really disappointed in the quality of the paper and the kit ideas. The stamp set isn't something I would ever choose either. Super bummed.
We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy this box. We have always used the same high quality card stock with each one of our kits and have always gotten great feedback on it. Because we vary our designs every month we also know the themes, designs and items in the box won't make everyone happy every time, however, we certainly do try to. Thank you again for subscribing and we'd love for you to give us another try sometime.
Directions were clear and concise.The components were of high quality and a joy to work with, overall a fun and satisfying project.
