I'm thinking of subscribing my daughter (she's 24 and has been scrapbooking since she was 12) to a monthly or every other month kit club. She's very busy with grad school and jobs and loves to scrapbook in her spare time but there isn't much of that and she really doesn't have time to shop for supplies. She is very creative (working on her degree in Art Therapy).
I am looking for some suggestions on kits that might appeal to her and thought some of you Young Scrappers might be able to steer me in the right direction. Any help you can provide woud be appreciated. I know she can work with anything (because sometimes people just give her their scraps and she makes a page right away out of them and it looks great!) but I would like to sign her up for something that would fit her style and age. She is not a "pink and frilly" gal but more eclectic and some modern and retro looks. (Years ago I used to buy her the Elsie line and she loved that then) Thanks for your help.

Have a look at Citrus Twist or Cocoa Daisy . They might be what you're looking for!

I think Cocoa Daisy are nice kits. You are an awesome Mom! I wish I would have had kits through out grad school to keep me going!
Will I ever get to Buckethead?!

I actually think that a lot of kit clubs are on the trendy end of things and feel "young" to me.
The Scrapbook Circle kit and Cocoa Daisy kit I got this month both feel very fun and young to me. Gossamer Blue and Citrus Twist also put out fun, trendy kits.
All 4 of those kits also seem to be a good value for the product you get. And, I can vouch that Cocoa Daisy, Citrus Twist, and Scrapbook Circle ship quickly, package the items well, and seem to have good customer service. I have never ordered from Gossamer Blue, so I can't say one way or the other.

I'm around that age, I'm 27, and I get both citrus twist and studio calico. I enjoy them both. The customer service at citrus twist is awesome too. I haven't had to use studio calico's. I feel like citrus twist is a little more bang for your buck but not by much.

I'm around that age (20), and in a similar boat. I'm working on my undergrad right now and working a part time job, plus I do some free childcare for family a couple times a week. I think your best bet would be a bimonthly kit club. I don't have a ton of experience with them, but I have found I don't have time to keep up with a kit every month on top of school, work, and general life. It sounds like your daughter may be the same and you wouldn't want all that scrappy happiness to go unloved!

I used to sub to Studio Calico, and I loved their kits. Very trendy, with a vintage twist, and their own unique style. I haven't subbed to any other kits, so I can't compare.

Thanks everyone for all the great advice and help. I've checked them all out and they look great... Now to make a decision. I may have to let her look at them and choose one for herself since it looks like I like them all! LOL

Not so young, but I'm an art therapist and think the best kit club that is related to the field is scrapbooking from the inside out. (Www.scrapbookingfromtheinsideout.com)

And I think it's super sweet of you to do this.
