Ever wonder what kind of stuff is in the Simon Says Stamp Black Friday Crafty Parcel? I was always curious too and this year I managed to snag one. I originally didn’t have the intention to buy it because last year it sold out in minutes. I just happen to wonder onto the site at 2201 (mountain time) and I saw that it was for sale, so into my cart it went and I quickly checked out.
The Crafty Parcel was listing for $69.99USD. I read that the contents of the parcel was valued around $200USD, so at $69.99, it sounded like a great deal. I was super excited to get it and honestly hoped that it contained patterned paper, ink pads and stamp sets that I could use for my box pop up cards.
I received the box and it contained 25 items.

I honestly don’t think that I can use a lot of what was in the package for the style that I currently craft in. I am keeping a couple things for myself and selling and giving away the rest. I was a bit disappointed in the Simon Says Stamp dies that I received as I don’t own the stamp sets and when I looked online, it looks like the stamp sets are discontinued so they are pretty much useless to me. The Avery Elle Tweet Tweet stamp set is still available if I wanted to buy it so I could actually potentially use these dies. I’m not really into Bible Journalling, scrapbooking, or planners so I will be giving some of these items away to friends that I think will use them.
I know the overall value is over $200 and the items in the box might be awesome for some people, but unfortunately for me, I don’t think a lot of these things fit into my current crafting style and I don’t think paying $69.99USD plus an additional $22.99 for shipping to Canada and with the current exchange rate, was worth it for me. Although it was kind of fun having a mystery box and going through it, I don’t think it was worth it for me and I don’t think I will be purchasing the Crafty Parcel in the future.
