I was really excited to open my Ultimate Crafter's Companion, but I have to admit that in the same breath, I was also a bit nervous. I have some products that I love and use on a daily basis, and I wasn't sure about adding another tool to the line up of things I love, to cut, emboss, score and so on. I'm pretty minimal on the extra steps to create with, so I was a bit unsure if I'd really enjoy this product, or if it would end up being a nice purple shelf warmer. I'm happy to report that there are several things about The Ultimate Crafter's Companion that I LOVE. I'm really excited about this product and really enjoyed working with it!
This tool is a great multi-purpose tool. The range of products that can be accomplished using The Ultimate Crafter's Companion is amazing! One of the great features about this tool is that it came with an informative DVD. I sat down with my Ultimate Crafter's Companion and my DVD and had a really informative lesson on just what this tool was capable of. I think the DVD was great, informative and clear to follow. I'd say it was a great help to understanding what all the pretty lines and markings on this lovely purple tool are for. I think the DVD idea is great. I can always pop it in again if I need a refresher! I also really appreciated the manual that came with the kit. It is a great informative and easy to follow manual. With the DVD and manual, you're guaranteed to make some fantastic projects that will get a definite "WOW!"
I really loved the box making feature of The Ultimate Crafter's Companion; it might be my favorite. Yes, I already have a great handy tool to score with, BUT The Ultimate Crafter's Companion takes the measuring out of the equation for me, and that helps make my productivity speedy. I think one of the great features about the box maker is that you can use any size paper--so the fun will never have to end. You can make boxes in all shapes and sizes! I love that making a box is as simple as having 2 pieces of paper that are the same size! The directions for the box are simple and so FAST! I was really happy with the resulting boxes and am sure that with how fast and easy it is to create a box using this tool, I'll be making many more gift boxes in the future!
The Ultimate Crafter's Companion has a great number of embossing details. I liked the decorative edges, scallops and so on are always a great addition to any card-or scrapbook page. However, there are way more possibilities for the embossing than just a decorative edge! I love that along with great scoring lines, finer detail embossing, there are fun shapes to emboss with as well. I had a great time making some of the cards that looked a bit more complex than I normally create, but found that they are super quick and not much more effort at all! For example, the pop-out cards went really fast, with instruction from the DVD and manual that came with The Ultimate Crafter's Companion. I know I'll be back to making these more detailed cards, because they are easier than they look and they are something a little bit special!
Another great feature of The Ultimate Crafter's Companion is the envelope making tool. I love that I can make custom envelopes with just 4 score lines! The guess work--or figuring--has already been done for me! There is a chart in the manual that tells me exactly what score lines to use for a specific size card--and it's really as simple as 4 score lines! I'm excited for more custom envelopes!
The Ultimate Crafter's Companion also has a cutting blade and bow maker feature that are great, but features I might not use quite as much. I have several other paper cutting tools that I love and will mostly likely stick to, but yes, the "Ultimate" allows you to even trim your paper for each project! I did enjoy the bow maker, but think that I'm ok with my "by hand" bow tying...but I'm sure there will be certain occasions when I'll be really glad I can get that perfect bow-using the "Ultimate" bow maker!
I think The Ultimate Crafter's Companion is a great tool. I'm excited to have been reviewed it and would recommend it for someone looking for a multi-purpose tool. I appreciate that a lot of figuring and decision making has been done for me, and all I have to do is score here and there! I can see why The Ultimate Crafter's Companion was the "winner of CHA's most innovative scrapbooking & paper arts product award a few years back!"
