What items did you order from the March Craft Day Events
Hi there all you crafters,
I was wondering what craft items did you all order and how do you like them?
You can still order today and get the 5.00 dollar shipping deal for your craft items you buy.
I just order item #487-111 the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Brush pens 3-piece Clear. I have been wanting these as I have three of the colored ones. I do really like colored ones very much so I know I will love the clear ones as well.
I also ordered Item #499-196 Xyron 5″ Creative Station All-In-1 Lite.
I have the 1.5 inch and I really like that but I wanted something that would make a bigger sticker from designs that I create with my Brother Scan n Cut.
I can comment on the Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter pens that I do have.
They are very nice and glittery when the light catches them it shows the glitter off very nicely. I wanted clear because I use a lot of colored paper and wanted to just have the glitter show and not the color.
I have a 1.5 Xyron in purple. I like this because it saves on glue and I can do paper cuts and save them for when I need them. I cut out my paper design then I use the xyron and put them away till I need to apply them to my project. They do last on the strip till I am ready so I am not worried about the timing of the glue drying out.
Please tell us what craft items you purchased and how you use or plan on using them. I look forward to hearing from all the crafters and what you all are doing.
Your HSN friend,
PS. not crazy about the typing posting box this is so 1980’s-1990’s
Hi There @peagee
Sounds like really nice dies you got there.☺
I am glad you got the tea pot. I have some rubber stamps that I bought not Crafters Companion.
That is a fancy tea pot and two fancy tea cups. I used a gold metallic ink and stamped out some white card stock. I did it in a toss fashion with tea pot and tea cups just randomly place right side up and upside down. The stamping came out really nice. I then touched the stamping and found that the gold metallic could rub off on my hands. Kinda messy but very pretty.☺
I will have to check out the Home Life dies I do not think I have seen them. Yes The Crafters Companion site is great. I visit it from time to time.
What are you using to cut your dies with? The Gemini? Nice if you are.☺
Thank you for stopping in and posting.☺ I am glad you did.☺ It is always nice to hear from a fellow crafter and saying what they bought or what they craft with. Thanks again my friend☺
Remember to watch May 9,2017 as that is the next crafting day☺
Your HSN friend
I also bought some dies from Crafter’s Companion. Their ‘Home Life’ dies. I decided not to order the teapot die and then changed my mind and just had to have it. The die had sold out but I was able to order it directly from Crafter’s Companion. On their web-site I also found some additional Home Life stamps and dies that were not offered on HSN. Some adorable veggies and seed packets. Love the entire set.
Hi there all you crafters,
I am here to tell I received my items pictured above on Wednesday April 5,2017. I bought my items on Friday March 31st. The shipped out on Sunday April 2nd. Thank you for the fast shipping. They where also packaged beautifully and what appeared to be with a lot of care. I think HSN and vendors heard the word about packaging.☺
I used both items and found The Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Brush Pens 3-piece Set-Clear Overlay. to be very glittery and shine beautifully. I made a bunny card and used them on that and really finished it off perfectly.
I wish I could show you all like I use to do but sorry I cannot.
I used the Xyron 5″Creative Station All-in-1 Lite. I found that I really also like this. The Xyron is now right up there with things I really love to use like my Brother Scan n Cut.
I had some old cut designs that I had saved and used everyone of them with the Xyron. I even took some buttons that I saved from a purchased card as I remove all the little good decorations from store bought cards and use them on my own cards. I put the buttons through my little 1.5 inch xyron and they are now ready to use on another project.
I find it is really better then using liquid glue or tape runners. Stays on nice and tight and no drying out.
If you do not have any Xyron as mentioned here. If you are a card maker you should really have one in your stash. Great product another item that has opened another world of crafting for me.

Your HSN friend,
Since I’m still paying off flex pays from the January craft day, I didn’t order as much on the March one. Also, there just wasn’t as much that I felt I had to have.
I got the Diamond Press Die-Cutting and Embossing Tool Item 543-787 and the folder refills for it. I’ve been wanting to try it since they 1st released it.
I’m becoming a great fan of Crafter’s Companion and was glad to see Sara Davies back on demonstrating. I bought one of the sets from the Rustic Cottage line: the Die and Stamp Collection Item 532-885. Love it.
I was charmed by the Docrafts Spring Time Foiled Decoupage Set Item 529-140 when I saw it, and I must say, it’s even better in person. You get a lot of pieces for your money.
I really enjoy watching We R Memory Keepers and their spokesperson Amber. But I wish they would bring in a bigger selection from that company. We see the same things over and over.
I like the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter pens, too!
Hit there PatriciaReads,
Thank you for sharing. I too like Sara Davies and I also like the Diamond press. I really like the Spectrum Noir markers and pencils and glitter pens. I too like We are Memory keepers. I too like watching Amber demonstrate. I am really liking the big crop-a-dial. That is on my list.
I have the Ultimate tool from Crafters companion. I am at present making a three compartment box. Meaning three boxes glued side by side and then placed in a bigger box to give it more strength. I will use it as a catch all on my crafting table.
I like the ultimate tool gives a lot more of hands on. I find I can make big boxes like shirt boxes for gift giving.
Sounds like the items you have are a great addition to paper crafts. I have just now really gotten into making cards and boxes. I like foiling too. Brother is coming out with a foil kit for the scan n cut. I will more then likely get it when it is available. I do not know when that will be. Soon I hope.
Well Thank you again for posting. I hope other crafters come along an tell us what they got and how they like it.
I see in another post the next craft day is in May. I was confused on the March crafting days. I only new about the 8th and never new of the rest of the days till I found out about the 14th. I did watch but never new of if there where other days for the month of March. So I only got to see two days. I agree with you not really that much for me either.
Well you have a great day thank you again.
Your HSN friend,
Hi @cupatea. Glad to see your new thread. This new format certainly isn’t conducive to your helping people with your instructive pics!!!
I wrote you a reply to your post on JPA-24. I also wrote in that post how you can make print dark and/or red.
I saw this thread yesterday but didn’t have time to respond. I came today to post a pic to it and I see that your pic ‘didn’t take’. Did you use tinypics? When mine came back looking like that, it was because I hadn’t erased the http that automatically shows up when you click on IMG. I erase that because what I copy and paste from tiny pics already has http in it. The other thing is that you might be using the wrong URL. In tiny pics they have 4 different ones–all in a small ‘search’ box–they are right under each other. The only one that works for me is the 4th one where it says Direct Link for Layouts. I assume that you clicked on IMG on the top bar of the Reply box in order to enter your URL. Let me know if this doesn’t work and I’ll try to help.
Hi all you crafters,
The sales for the craft month are all gone now. Along with the 5 dollar shipping deal.
Here is the Xyron 5 Creative Station All in One that I purchased.
My plans are to use this to glue ribbons on to cards and to make paper designs and to glue them on to any paper project that I create.
Your HSN friend,
