Good evening peas! I am hoping some of you can help! I haven't ever done a monthly kit before so i am looking for a good one to start with, I have two young children and mostly scrap them and our day to day. I do have quite a backlog of events and vacations as well. I am looking for one the provides variety and quality product !
Thanks in advance for your suggestions and help!

I subscribe to Citrus Twist both the main kit and the project life kit. Kits are packed full of beautiful scrap goodies and their customer service is out of this world. Trina is the best!!

I just joined scraptastic and scrapbook generations sketches club. I've gotten two of the scrapbook generations and loved them.

I just joined paper wishes from hot off the press. I'm thinking of joining a second one but January is insanely busy so I am waiting until feb to join it. I was doing a close to my heart one and I still really enjoy it so still pondering if I want to keep doing it.

My Scraps & More just started monthly kits without an subscription! Their kits are full of great product, very low prices and come with an exclusive sketch!

I love the Studio Calico club. Great selection of products with plenty to work with. I can't stand the clubs that give you barely enough to get anything done or have any variety.

A lot of clubs you don't have to join to get a kit. I buy from Studio Calico when I really LOVE a kit. Sometimes that means I have to stay up late for reveal (midnight for me) to get what I want (and sometimes I haven't been fast enough), but I love the thrill of it.

I have tried a million kits but I really like hip2bsquare.com, paperposies.com, and scraptasticclub.com. Depends what you are looking for. For instance scrap-room.com offers 4 different paper collections in each of their kits each month with coordinating embellies and a really great design team. They are a non committment club. Most kits will let you buy month to month but you may pay a higher price and you won't be guaranteed a kit unless you sub.

I highly recommend Scrapbook Circle. I adore the kits I get from them - especially the printables, and Lisa (the owner) is super helpful too.

Bookmarking this thread for ideas on other kit clubs.

I get a kit sub from my not-so-local scrapbook store. It's enough paper & embellies for one 2page LO, and one 12x12 LO, which they give a sketch for, plus 6 cards w/card ideas for $20. I usually have enough extra to make up my own LO's and cards, if I want. It's quite a value, and I've never been disappointed with what they offer.

I think you need to decide if you want a "Scrapbook Kit" which is full of coordinating paper, embellishments etc. that you use to design your own pages. Or are you looking for "Page Kits" which are already pre-designed, sometimes pre-cut and you just following the directions to put the page together and add your photos.

I think that might make a difference in the suggestions that you are getting.

My two cents: I like Quick Quotes Club Q which are pre-designed pages.

I just joined Citrus Twist and am VERY happy with my choice. I got the DEC main kit and the Dec PL kit and they were so awesome! I loved the variety of embellishments and the stamps are high polymer quality.
I am a member of Studio Calico also but honestly I have been disappointed with the kits lately-too much of the same embellishments month after month. I'm waiting to see the January kit before I decide if I am going to cancel or not.

Club SEI is a great one. I subscribe to all three kits they offer. they are a scrapbooking kit, card making kit and a paper craft kit. The card and paper craft kit are on the odd months and the scrapbook kit is on the even months. I love the quality of everything and the price is good too.

I've been a subscriber to The Scraproom for several years. I love that I get 4 different lines in one kit each month each line has 2 cardstock, 3 patterned paper, plus embellishments/ribbon. If you want more then they have add-on clubs available. It's the best value for my money and they always let you know what lines they plan to do after CHA so I can be sure not to get doubles when I fill my bucket at Two Peas.

I sub to Scraptastic Club and love, love, love their kits. The have a monthly option between two kits every month, plus coordinating add-on and stamp options. There is also no commitment, so you can skip whenever you need to. If you order two months in a row, you get a free small gift (I.e. washi tape, misters, stickles, etc.). I can't say enough good things about it.

I'm looking to add another kit sub, too, so I'll be looking into the ones suggested.

I have a question about the Scraproom kits. I see they offer a coffee and no coffee version. The price is the same but I'm wondering if there are any differences in the kit contents.

Thanks!

For Shesa-Renagade, there is no difference in the scrappy contents between the coffee and no coffee. When I joined there was only the 'with coffee' kit and no one drinks coffee in my house. However the little pack of coffee smells so good each month I've kept getting it. I always give it to my mother or a friend who will appreciate it. They've always told me it was yummy every month (they like the different flavored coffees).
