I tend to shy away from buying all the latest and greatest embellishments since they seem too pricey for a package to me. And when I look at new pattern papers I just can’t decide what to buy. So, I looked to a new kit club to bring me a little of the newest and coolest items at an affordable price. Plus, who doesn’t love getting a wonderful box of goodies in the mail each month?
I chose Scraptastic Club. I saw a preview video of their items and liked what I saw. I will go over their club more in another post. For now I wanted to share a few layouts I made as I busted into my first kit.
For this layout, I wanted to get A LOT of photos on one page to document my daughters love of crafts. Everything except the bakers twine comes from September’s We Are Family kit.
And for layout number two I used September’s This Life Noted stamp set (available to purchase separately) as well as some ink, embossing powder and punches from my stash.
My first thoughts on this kit: I don’t normally use such small alpha stickers for my titles but the smaller letters gave me a chance to spell out longer titles. While that small size isn’t my favorite, I certainly found it a challenge and used it to my advantage. This is also what I was hoping to get out of a kit club… to be presented with items I might not normally use and to come up with ways to incorporate them! I feel I’m off to a good start with my new club and I look forward to posting more layouts.
P.S. Another one of my goals is to get as many layouts out of a kit as I can. With a kit membership being $25 a month (plus shipping) I hope to get plenty of layouts done so I feel like I am stretching my dollars really far. I will post a video at the end of the kit to show all the layouts (and probably a few cards) that I get out of the kit.
