F03272 - Deluxe Kreate-a-lope Envelope & Card Template Kit
I love this product. I bought another kind of kit the other day thinking it was going to be better than this one. I sent it back. This one by far is better. It is very easy to use with many choices of sizes. My mom has one of these kits too. She loves hers also.
This is my favorite tool for making envelopes. I have 2 other systems and this is by far the easiest to use. You don't need to buy special sized paper or pre-cut the paper before using. I do trace the templates and then cut because I prefer the cleaner lines. The templates are color coded and easy to match up. There is a nice variety of sizes too. I wish I had bought this system first because I could have purchased other items with money I saved!
I bought mine many years ago and have used it many times. I even got my husband to use it once and that is saying a lot! It is still like new after many uses-it doesn't seem to wear out. You will love it!
So Easy & Fun!
I bought this many, many years ago, and everyone made fun of me. I sent it back without ever using it. Well, I finally got around to making cards, and I ordered it again along with the liner templates. Keep in mind, I am VERY new to this craft. I have made less than 10 cards and fewer envelopes. Oh my goodness! This is the easiest product ever! I get very professional looking results. It is total instant gratification with very little effort. I do not recommend tearing your paper as the instructions say. I lightly score around the edge of the template with a bone folder. Then I use a paper trimmer to get nice, clean & straight edges. Sometimes I use a corner punch to shape the closing flap. The card templates are nice too. I like the instructions for folding the card into thirds. It's a nice change from just folding a piece of paper in half.
This product opens up tons of ideas for different envelopes!
This is the most awesome configuration put together. Anyone will hours and hours fun.
Exceptional Value & Easy to Use
I bought these and then it was awhile before I needed to make an envelope, and then I needed it in a hurry. The directions were very clear, it was a breeze to use, and the envelope turned out perfect! On the first try!
I now can have matching envelopes to all my hand-made cards - hurray!
I have never tried tearing the paper (And I often use cardstock, too) I just trace the template with a pencil, and then use my Fiskars rotary paper trimmer to make the cuts.
I think it's a 'must-have' for any card maker.
Thanks, QVC, for another winner!
Hard to figure out
I have had a very hard time trying to figure out the instructions. Finally my daughter in law did and tho every time I pick up this kit, it is a struggle to figure out, I do think it is something you would want in your scrap room.
Fast and Simple
These are simple to use. The paper tears fairly clean but you can trace and cut if you want a super clean edge - the mini templates are great for making tiny envelopes to use for decorating cards or scrapbook pages. I will be making a lot more cards now that I have this set!!! Thank you QVC for bringing another great product!!!
Makes envelopes a snap
Making matching envelopes to my stationary and cards have been so easy since I bought this set back years ago. They also had them for shapes like hearts and flowers. Maybe with enough support they will offer those again. You will enjoy this set so much. You can also use your repositionable tape for sealing the envelope when the glue runs out which takes a long time by the way. I also bought the bag and box making kits when they were offered. Buy them you will love them!!
Extremely easy to use, so much so that my six year old grandson helps me make the envelopes!!
These templates are fantastic and extremely easy to use! If you are having trouble getting a clean tear, do as I do - trace the template onto the back side of your paper and use your paper trimmer to make the three VERY SIMPLE cuts!
not so easy
Unlike the other reviews that have been written, I did not find these easy to use. Probably me, but I couldn't get a clean tear and tried many times. I even tried my water pen and that helped a bit but not as well as I would have liked. Sending them back tomorrow.
Another great Kreate a lope kit
These templates are absolutely great! They are very sturdy, and easy to use. The instructions are clear. I have purchased all the kits from this company, and have been totally pleased with every one of them! They are different than other envelope templates I have purchased, and now I wouldn't use any other template. I would highly recommend this kit as well as other offerings from this company.
