Hello ladies! So I have been looking to join a kit club, and have been looking at a handful of different ones, just not sure which may fit what I want the most, so I thought I'd get your opinions! I'm trying to start scrapping 12x12, and struggling. I mainly make cards and minis but want to start making full albums and decided a kit club will help me. These are the brands I enjoy the most: American Crafts, Bobunny, Jillibean Soup, Studio Calico and some Pink Paislee, October Afternoon, Basic Grey and Crate Paper. Any ideas of kits that regularly contain majority of these brands on a regular basis? Thanks!!

|Posted: 10/2/2012 2:51:26 PM|The three clubs that I sub to have a great mix of those brands and then some:
Scraptastic - Fancy Pants, American Crafts, Jillibean Soup, and Studio Calico
Citrus Twist Kits - Crate Paper, Prima, Heidi Swapp, Studio Calico, October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket, My Mind's Eye, Amy Tangerine, et al.
Gossamer Blue - Lawn Fawn, October Afternoon, Jillibean Soup, Webster Pages, Bella Blvd, My Mind's Eye, Pebbles, Basic Grey, Echo Park, et al.
Citrus Twist and Gossamer Blue are HEAVY on brand mixing when it comes to the pattern paper in their kits. This is VERY important to me because I don't ordinarily go out of my way to purchase certain brands of paper, so it's much easier if it's all mixed together into one SUH-weet kit!
Good luck with your decision!!

The MCS "Creative Kit" tends to be more for the non-shabby chic scrapbooker and often incorporates the brands you mentioned. The other MCS kits more typically include Prima, Pink Paislee, etc and lots of flowers/lace.
I think any of the clubs that have been around for awhile have loyal fan bases and good reputations. You really can't go wrong!

They use many different lines in their kits, and what I love is that most of the paper combinations can work for both boys and girls. I have three boys, and don't find myself using much pink. I also think that it is very affordable. Good luck deciding

|Posted: 10/2/2012 6:03:38 PM|The Scrap Room is an awesome kit club. 4 different lines each month with just the right amount of matching embellies and card stock. And the option to add more! Google the scrap-room (make sure the dash is in the middle). The owner (Tammy) is so great...she even lets you skip a month here and there if you don't love the kit or for financial reasons.. Check it out-I've been a member off and on for about 4 years!

I would just add Cocoa Daisy to the mix. Looks like they have lots of the brands you like, add on options and exclusive stamps, if you like that kind of thing You can find them

I would recommend checking out Scrap Room, too. I loved the variety of 4 different layouts each month. Always new product and many of the lines you are interested in are included. And great customer service!

I have been getting Citrus Twist that last 2 months and have enjoyed my kits very much. I looking forward to this months. They are started a kit this month that coordinates with the main kit for Project Life. I can't wait for that one.
I just subscribed to Studio Calico and Coccoa Daisy this month. I think I am really going to like them also.
The reason why I subscribe to these is the variety of embellies and paper you receive. There are no stores really close to me that really keep a large current inventory and the items I receive are current items. There is an Archiver's near me, but is over an hours drive. I only go there maybe every 3 months or so, becasue I hate the traffic to get there.
I did subscribe to Scrapbook Generation and while I love the concept and the Layouts, I wanted more than paper only.
Good luck in your choices.

As for me I love My Citrus Twist kits!! You can't go wrong with the exclusive stamps and the handcrafted vintage items she adds each month.
And I also love Gossamer Blue like said above you get a great mix.
