The Creativity box looks nice, but $75 is too much. For that kind of money, I’d go with the Crafter’s Box, which is a much better value (imo), plus you can skip.

If it were in the ~$50 range, I’d be tempted.

For what it’s worth, I went out to Paper Source’s website and priced 4 of the items – the heat gun, Versamark, Embossing Pen Set, and the embossing powder and the price before tax was $45.80. I then went to Blick Art Materials website and added the same 4 items to my cart, all were exactly the same brand except the heat gun, price before tax was $40.26. The cards and envelopes appear to be $15.00 on Paper Source’s Website and the stamp is another $9. I didn’t specifically look for anything equivalent on Blick’s website bc. it is pretty hard to compare paper quality online. So, the cost of products purchased at Paper Source are ~$70. Their shipping is free with a $50 purchase so you aren’t saving anything there. I have done heat embossing before and it really only requires a 2 minute tutorial, perhaps they go into some unique techniques. For the same price (or a bit less if buying some things at Blicks), I can get the same products in the colors and design I want (honestly, not loving that stamp when I see all the other options). I was a little bit tempted to sign up for this, until I read that you are committed for a full year with no skips/swaps/etc. especially when their other examples are watercolor and paper quilling as I am a subscriber to Let’s Make Art’s Watercolor Box and bought the Crafter’s Box Paper Quilling Box…. so I am going to pass for now. Maybe December’s box will change my mind because I do value the convenience of having everything sourced and packaged all in one neat box for me.

This box won’t last very long at those prices. Kiwis crate is 20 bucks for pete’s sake. I know that’s not with a class but still…😒

It really seems like the bulk of the price is for the online workshop, I’d much rather get more supplies for my money—or even an in-person class once they’re offered again.

paper source embossing powder is really nice, but they often have the set of heat gun and pens and powder on sale for around $25! Their paper is great too, but buying open stock will be much more cost effective to learn embossing than this kit.

Geez on the prices. Youtube and Paper Wishes have free online tutorials. Michaels has affordable supplies.

Give the kid one of your umpteen ipsy bags and let him/her embellish it. You probably already have all the paint/beads/glue/brushes you need at your house.

Do you have way too much money on your hands and have kids that like crafts? 😂

The creativity box looks good, but being forced to sign up for a year and not even being able to skip is not at all appealing
The kids box is priced too high imo
