Crafting with the Crafter’s Companion

Well I’ve been having lots of fun coming up with little samples to demonstrate all the cool features of the Crafter’s Companion. Like I said yesterday, there is so much to do, I haven’t had time to delve in too deep. Here are three things I’ve been able to do with the Ultimate Crafter’s Companion so far:

Decorative embossing with the embossing boards

Card making – this is my first ever gatefold card. I’ve always loved this style but have never had the ambition to do it myself. It was so easy with this tool because the score lines are labeled so you know where to score for each different kind of card. You can do a basic half fold, tri-fold, slimline, accordion, jump-up, popout, or K-card.

And the envelope maker is probably my favorite. The instruction booklet has measurements and directions for making 12 different standard sized envelopes – what more could you need? I can’t wait to make envelopes with pretty paper to match my card. This is going to brighten my postman’s day so much!

This weekend I’m going to get busy making bows and boxes! If you’re only interested in one or two aspects of the Ultimate Crafter’s Companion, you can buy just the envelope maker or the score or embossing boards.  Happy crafting!

I have the Enveloper (just the envelope portion) and I LOVE it! It is so easy to use and I love using magazine pages and stuff to make fun envelopes for free!

Wow! It looks like you certainly had fun with the Crafter’s Companion. Can I just say again that it seems like a fabulous find!

That’s really great that you can get them separately like that.

Wow! That is the coolest. I have not done any folded cards yet or made my own envelopes. What a treat to have one of these!

Those things (ie score boards, etc) make me think even I can crank out some pretty cool cards and stuff! The score board and envelope maker are too cool!

I am just drooling all over the keyboard thinking of all sizes of envelopes I will be able to make with the crafter’s companion. It will make life so simple. And you add your personal touch to it. Me totally loving it.

Cool! I’m going to have to take a good look at the envelope maker. I’d love to make nice ones for the cards I make.

I love this tool! I also have a Cricut Expression. I will be making many cards and gifts with these tools! The Ultimate is the best thing since sliced bread. I just got it last week and I have already made and explosion box, hidden panel card, and a few basic cards. I love it!
