Martha Stewart All In One Craft Station (Seriously!)

Hey everyone! Happy Wednesday! I have a seriously cool product to tell you all about.. but first lets announce the blog candy winner!
The winner from Monday's Simon Says Stamp & Show: A Tim Holtz Themed Tag is.. Carol! Congrats! Please email Fran@SimonSaysStamp.com with your information and the title of the blog you won from!

Now.. drum roll please..
When I first saw the Martha Stewart All in One Craft Station.. I'll admit I wasn't a believer. But after doing some research, and getting a tutorial by the Martha Stewart Brand Manager Liz (who really knows her stuff!)- I just can not get over how awesome this kit is!

Link
For starters, the cutting board is BACKLIT by LED lights! I know this is always a struggle for me when I'm tracing, being able to see the lines and that I'm matched up. This is no longer a problem!

Then, what really sent me over the moon was the blade replacement feature! This Martha Stewart Crafts All in One Station includes a tool to help remove the blade! Your fingers will never touch the blade! For clumsy people like me.. this is seriously important :)!

The stamp positioner, and the cutting arm both lock down to precise slices and stamping! No more slanted-line cuts, or praying as you stamp that you've positioned the image correctly!


Here's everything else it includes (in just ONE kit! no additional purchases!)
• LED light box with 12 inch x 12 inch glass
• Movable ruler arm with blade shuttle
• Embossing stylus, Cutting Knife
• 100 + tracing and cutting templates (fonts, borders, frames, tags, journaling lines)
• Alignment guide (1/2" grid)
• Blade replacement cartridge with 2 blades.

I love that there's an embossing stylus. Sometimes, you don't want to use your machine and get a full page of an embossed design you know? You just want one detail embossed. With these templates and the embossing stylus, you can literally emboss wherever and whatever you want onto the paper!

Not sold yet? Check out this video from the Martha Stewart Crafts website for more info:


Isn't this Craft Station just above and beyond?! I hope I explained it to you in a way that lets you see how much it could ease your craft-making and become the showcase of your crafting table!

Thanks for reading!

  10. Seriously I love most of Martha Stewart's craft products. I absolutely love her punches. Too cool w/back lighting.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I do love MS products and she seems to think of products that will make our life easier... and I got to admit it would replace several tools already on my worktable... but $165 seems a bit much. Maybe its will be at my local big box craft store and I can use a 40% coupon on it! Tks for providing the review.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like the lighting so tracing and embossing are easy to to.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Looks very promising! A light box, cutter and stamp positioner all in one. Can't wait to see some reviews on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  14. quite an intriguing tool, for sure! MSL sure has taken to our hobby in a big way in the past few years!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Having the light box is a really great feature. I don't usually support old martha, but I must say that this looks seriously neat!

    ReplyDelete

  22. very cool surface. Thanks for the information and giveaway.

  23. Whoa, that is pretty awesome! I like the cutting blade on the side of the arm instead of in the middle. Much easier to see where you are cutting. The back-lit feature is great! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I think its one for the must have list...for one who crafts mostly at night looks like my christmas money going to be spent before I get it.lol...xx

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am sold!!! Living in an apartment with my family of 3, space for crafting is VERY limited and this one seems to do almost everything - with perfection!!! I think I'd love it - and my husband too (who hates tripping on my cuttingmat and rollercutter on the floor)
    Thank you so much for this chance.
    Happy Holidays, Karin

  26. It looks really cool. I for one love the LED light and the easy cutting and alignment, the hidden blades that won't cut your fingers.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It does look pretty neat! I like the backlit feature, as well as the alignment guide too. Really it has a lot of neat features - just wish that I had thought of designing it first. What will they think of next!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love the movable ruler, but the backlight is a stroke of genius! T4S

    ReplyDelete
  29. That is one very cool piece of equipment. The only drawback is the cost when I already have an assortment of things that do everything the Craft Station does. However, a windfall in my finances could see a purchase sometime in my future - I do love me a compact design and the resulting reduction of 'clutter'

    ReplyDelete

  50. Just when I thought there was nothing new to see this week, along comes this review! Very interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I like how it is back lit and has the alignment bar for stamping. I would have to say the thing I like best is that the cutting blade moves against the rail. I always have trouble getting a straight cut.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love the fact that its several tools in one! And that backlit... what a neat idea!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I LOve the backlite lighting awesome

    ReplyDelete
  64. I like the LED light on the Craft Station! You know, sometime (or most of the time), we craft at night with dim light and a back lit from the cutting board really helps a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Brilliant kit, the ruler is a lovely asset but all round FABULOUS! Ruby x
