Block Printing ~ January 2015 ~ Darby Smart

This month's Darby Smart To DIY For Box was a Block Printing project.  This was my best month yet with Darby Smart.  The project was challenging, fun and pretty!  What more could a crafter ask for?  I had never tried any type of carving in my crafting, so it was really nice to try my hand at it.  The materials provided were good quality and sufficient for completing the project.  As of right now this kit is not available for purchase but there is one that comes with more inks and supplies for $47, here's the link for that:

The link for the instructions on how to complete the kit that come in my monthly subscription box is:

The score for this kit:
Value - 5
Ease of Use - 4
Instructions - 4
Finished Product - 4
Overall score - 4.25

Please note:  I purchased this monthly subscription.  It is NOT provided to me to demonstrate or review.  I am not compensated by Darby Smart in any way to show this product.
