Craft Buddy is a company that sells products in the categories DIY Arts, Craft & Hobby Kits, Card making and Paper crafting (card making and paper crafts) and Mixed Media Crafts (making things from different materials). In the first category you have Diamond Paintings. Craft Buddy sells its Diamond Paintings under the name Crystal Card & Art Kits.

Mounted in wooden frame and licensed

What distinguishes them most from other companies is that all Crystal Art kits come pre-assembled on wooden frames. Something that is very nice because then you do not have to try to find a frame yourself. All motifs they sell are licensed and they pay the artists for their work. I suspect that it is this in combination with the fact that they are pre-assembled that makes the prices slightly higher than other stores.

Delivery time

Craft Buddy has its warehouse in the UK and they aim to send orders within 1-2 days of receiving the order. How fast you get your order depends on how much you order for and where you are located. Specified here are the minimum and maximum number of days you have to wait.

  • If you are in the UK you can get the package between 1-3 days. If you are in Ireland, Netherlands, France, Germany or Belgium you can get the package between 3-10 days.
  • If you are in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain or Sweden you can get the package between 3-15 days.
  • If you are in USA, Canada, Australia or any where else in the world you can get the package between 5-20 days.
  • If you order your own motif, however, you can count on it taking 2-4 weeks. Because it will be manufactured in China and then shipped.


The shipping cost depends on how much you shop for and in which country you live. But the price ranges between 1.99£ and 69.99£. However to some countries if you buy things for over 34.99£ the delivery is free.
