So everyone keeps talking about scraptastic. I like the looks of their June kit but their site is weird to me. Is there more than one kit? I emailed them a week ago and never got a response and I can't tell where to sign up. I put the kit in my cart and it wanted me to pay (I also had a stamp set in the cart) but I wasn't registered as a user so couldn't sign in.

There are two kits to choose from plus the PL kit that you can sign up for. I'm not sure if there is a waiting list for the PL kit. The June kits appear to be sold out. If you click on the contact-us link you'll get the email address to use. Jessica is normally very quick to respond.
|Posted: 6/12/2013 2:42:59 PM|I signed up last month because I like that you can choose which kit is best for you.
When you sign up for the kit club, you will have to email your choice of kit and addons that you want each month by a certain date. If you want to order stuff from the site to ship with your kit, when you subscribe you get a coupon code, and using that code at checkout tells to ship your extras with your kit.
If you emailed, I am shocked that you did not get a response. I would definatly email again, because she is super fast responding when I email.
ETA: I do believe that as the other poster said... June is sold out, so your subscription would probably start in July. But that's OK, I think the July kit is even better! I am having a terrible time choosing!

I would definitely email again. The owner is really nice and ususally very quick. The last time we exchanged emails it was almost instant, like having a conversation.

Serenitysmom...how do you know what the July kit looks like? I didn't see a photo of it on the site. Maybe you could direct me where to look? Thanks!

I emailed Jessica and she said signed me up for the sub and I didn't have to do anything else. Should I be worried that I haven't gotten an email about choosing a kit for July yet? I did get the preorder email but nothing about my kit.

Ok I will try to email her again! Maybe I did it wrong the first time! You never know. I currently have one month left on my sc sub and with everything going on want to see what other options are out there! Are there pics of the different kits from the past?? Thanks everyone!

Can one of your lovely ladies review the kit? I already went through the whole SC ordeal and am a little concerned about doing it again.

And do you have to pay through PayPal???

I got my first PL kit from there and am getting a scrap kit as well next month. The kit came well packaged in really nice reusable ziplock bags, I hated the waste of the paper ones at CD and SC, and the cards are really nice and thick. Square corners too, which I prefer. They have free shipping over 75.00 just like SC, which will be really nice for me, as I hate paying shipping. There are two main kits each month and you can choose which one you like. There are also add ons, but no horrible rush to buy, just email the owner which, if any you would like. The stamps in the PL kit are a good quality and much better than the SC ones have been. You can also skip a month, but you get an extra goodie if you don't. This month I think it is an AC Percision pen or stickles.
The owner is super quick to respond and I think the main kits are a much better value than SC. I don't think the PL kit is as good a value, but I really like the cards and the customer service and quality are MUCH better.

When you email about a new subscription, You can ask what is in each kit so you can decide. You will also get one that has all the details about when payment is due, etc.
(Each month you will get an email when the details of the kit are available and when finalized.) I'm not sure about the paypal question, because I always use paypal to pay online.

Because of all of the glowing reviews, I too decided to jump on board. I emailed Jessica yesterday, and she responded asking for my paypal and shipping address. I am assuming there is nothing else to do. I thought I read somewhere that you needed to decide by the 25th which kit you wanted. Am I imagining that? And if so, when should I expect the email with info about July's kits? Thanks everyone, I know there have been several threads on Scraptastic, but I am still not very clear how it works.

I had asked about the PayPal as well and she said she now can take other payments you just email her with your info when she is ready to run it through. I am starting in August although I really wish my sub was up with sc now so I could start with July lol I may break the budget and do July anyway

Jessica is awesome! If she hasn't heard from me by the deadline she usually sends me a reminder.

"Serenitysmom...how do you know what the July kit looks like? I didn't see a photo of it on the site. Maybe you could direct me where to look? Thanks!"
nathol, when you are a subber you get a sneak of the kits by email before they are released... HTH!
