I first saw the Martha Stewart Craft Station a few months back and wondered if it was worth the money. At the time it had a $150 price tag at my local Michaels – definitely pricey for my craft budget (you can pick it up online for $99). But luckily I’ve had a chance to spend some time with it and realize it is, in fact, a great value for the money if you don’t have a lot of paper crafting tools available to you – this station had many of the basics all in one.

The station base is an LED light box-esque surface, which is great for tracing or when you need a bright work surface. The main arm acts as a way to help align tools, stamps, etc., and also features a paper cutter. This small light box has really helped a lot of my projects recently, especially for creating my own embroidery patterns.

I love the dry embossing template. It comes with a stylus and has a handful of designs and shapes for you to include in your card creations.
What’s unique about the station is that it has several plastic templates that slide underneath the glass and act as lettering guides, position assistants, and more. If your handwriting could use some help, the lettering guide helps tremendously. Here are a few of them.

The Craft Station definitely has a permanent place on my craft table. It’s easy to pick up and move, so it helps make crafting anywhere possible any time. Still curious about the station beyond my opinion? Check out this video overview from Martha Stewart crafter Figgy Noonan as he walks you through each element of the station.

    I wish I could like my Craft Station more. There are a lot of great points with it. But, here are my negative ones. I actually with the light was brighter so you could dry emboss dark paper. Right now it seems I can only emboss light colors. It is also the same if you want to use the tracing feature I also, don’t know if it is me or if there is a secret on how to cut to the exact dimensions. Example I want to cut something that is 2″ & it is slightly bigger. It is just where the blade meets the paper that it is always a little bigger & then I have to figure out how to cut exactly 2″. All in all I like my Craft Station. Not sure I would spend the money again though.
