Crafting is more than just a hobby; it's a form of self-expression, a therapeutic outlet, and a way to create beautiful, meaningful items.
What seasoned crafters know, and what beginners eventually learn, is that the right crafting products can make all the difference in bringing your artistic visions to life.
For this blog post, let’s explore the joy and satisfaction that crafters have found in 13 exceptional crafting products, as shared through their heartfelt testimonials below.
Important Note: More of our crafting goodies are on sale right now! Check out our Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sale Collection here for great discounts on various crafting supplies like these.
If you want gorgeous and impeccable coverage with a sharp impression every time you use your preferred stamps, our fresh dye inks are essential. The Scintillating Shades Fresh Dye Ink Bundle, for example, was designed to provide stunningly crisp outcomes when stamping, and they work exceptionally well with our clear photopolymer stamps.
Here’s what crafter Chris loves about it:
What’s more, these inks are spill-free, have an easy-to-open twist mechanism, and are stackable, too! As we’ve said before, our products are made by crafters, for crafters.
2. Craft Your Life Project Kit: Floral Acanthus 4-in-1 Set with Add-on Layering Stencil and Embossing Folder
Our Craft Your Life Project Kits have always provided crafters with the supplies and inspiration they need for their next project every month. This is why many of our customers continue to subscribe to the Craft Your Life monthly subscription plan.
Moreover, if they’re not into the upcoming set for the next month, they can easily put their subscription on hold and reactivate it whenever they want. For this set, the theme was Floral Acanthus, which has become a staple in architecture, textile, and furniture designs. Crafter Hema expresses what she loves most about the Craft Your Life Project Kit:
As crafters ourselves, we couldn’t agree more. Receiving a bundle with everything you need for crafting excites us, too!
There’s always something so fascinating about tools with more than one capability. For crafters, it’s an awesome feeling when you get supplies that have multiple uses and purposes. And that is why crafters like Anne are fans of the Garden Love 24 Artist Alcohol Markers Bundle. Check out her testimonial below:
Our alcohol markers are great on the go, too! Want to create dazzling sceneries inspired by the places you’re visiting? These alcohol markers are your best friend!
Another fan favorite in our Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale is the Atomic Fresh Dye Ink Bundle, This vibrant and colorful set includes the Red Sunset Fresh Dye Inks and the Sweet Dreams Fresh Dye Inks. Here’s one explanation of why crafters love this bundle:
Thanks, Claudine! And you’re right: the new fresh dye inks are a step up from our original crisp dye inks (although if you do prefer our crisp dye inks, we love that about you, too!). Learn more about the differences between various types of craft ink in this blog post.
Blending tools are very handy in maximizing the use of craft inks. These tools work well with any ink color to make stunning and vibrant paper crafting projects. Each one has soft, white bristles and comfortable handles, which makes it easy to blend ink without tiring your hands.
Here, take a look at what crafter Sue likes most about this set:
Cleaning them is a breeze, too! Just rinse the blending tool with mild soap and water, then let them dry naturally.
Our Build-A-Garden: Grand Carnations kit consists of a stamp set that showcases an open carnation with two buds, a lone carnation, and three matching leaves. The sentiments and phrases in the bundle are flexible and come in an attractive cursive font.
Crafters can color them using pencils or watercolor, or make vibrant designs with the matching stencil set. And, with a bit more creativity, you can add your own twists to the design, just like what another crafter did here:
Indeed, there is no wrong way to use the Build-A-Garden crafting set. Let your imagination run wild, create designs with different color palettes, and craft to your heart’s content.
There’s a reason we call this bundle “ultimate” – it has a wide variety of stunning and flamboyant colors that also coordinate with our fresh dye ink line! The brush tip has flexible and robust bristles that enable both broad and fine strokes, and the color can be applied directly from the marker or thinned with water for a more subtle effect.
Plus, it’s beginner-friendly, too, as evidenced by the testimonial below:
So, for crafters like Helen who are not quite confident with their watercoloring skills, the Ultimate Watercolor Brush Markers are a great help!
Yes, you read that right: Even our storage pouches are getting some love during the Black Friday Sale!
And why not? Having clean, reusable storage pouches is a must for crafters who want to keep their space neat and clutter-free. But what do our crafters really think about our pouches? Michele says:
This is true: Having the right storage solutions will ensure a longer lifespan for your crafting supplies and even your creations. So get your own pack of storage pouches and say goodbye to your crafting storage worries.
Altenew’s Black Friday Sale also includes a perfect pairing – the Artist Alcohol Markers Set D & Remember This Stamp Set Bundle. This package consists of the following:
- A 32-piece set of 6" x 8" stamps made from top-notch photopolymer, and;
- A set of 12 alcohol-based artist markers with dual tips, which come in shades of purple, green, and brown.
Let’s take a look at why crafters like Jenny love this markers-and-stamps pair:
We couldn’t agree more, Jenny. These tools complement each other so well and allow crafters to create dazzling designs!
Tammy sums everything up perfectly for this set. If you enjoy incorporating shiny, die-cut phrases or messages into your paper crafts (with punctuations), then the Versatile Greetings Bundle is for you.
Elevate your crafting projects with depth and sparkle using these beautiful complementary greetings. This set includes dies for eight different greetings and a comma, as well as matching hot foil plates to add a bit of glamour to your sentiments.
Combine modern artistry and timeless elegance with the Layered Dahlia A & B Stencil Set. These stencils work together seamlessly to create a radiant and unique layered effect. They are incredibly user-friendly and allow crafters to create beautiful projects with ease. But what makes them so intuitive is what crafter Kathy points out below:
Truly, Altenew’s color palettes make coloring any stencil set a breeze. Still, creativity has no limits, and experimenting with different color combinations is highly encouraged!
Also, whether you use them with an ink blending tool, ink spray, or modeling paste, the possibilities for achieving different effects are endless.
Here’s another stunning set of alcohol markers for you. Experience a seamless crafting journey with the Mystic Garden & Beach Garden Artist Alcohol Markers.
Moreover, every set in this collection includes downloadable color and blank swatches, instructional videos, and inspiring guides! These alcohol markers, along with their resources, are meticulously designed to assist you in bringing your paper crafting projects to life with enjoyment and ease. As Annie says in her testimonial:
Thanks for the compliments, Annie. We’ll be sure to continue supplying crafters with high-quality products that help create striking designs and remarkable projects!
Finally, we have the Textured Perfection Embossing Folder set. This set consists of the top five most popular embossing folders from the Altenew store.
Furthermore, these are not your regular embossing folders. They are designed to create three-dimensional shapes, going beyond the typical 2D embossed texture. To enhance your creations, simply use a die cutter and follow the manufacturer's instructions for 3D embossing folders. It's as easy as that!
Here’s a testimonial from Dex, who’s grown so fond of these tools:
Truly, these embossing folders will elevate your craft and create an amazing visual and tactile experience for your card’s recipient!
