What PL kit club do you recommend? I'm not a fan of vintage if that is helpful. Thanks!!

I subbed to Citrus Twist for about 6 months.
There kit would include CT stamps, cut apart sheets, stickers, 4x6 & 3x4 cards, and a 6x6 pad of paper.
And the above is sent in a brown bag wrapped with twine.
I stopped subbing due to financial reasons or else I would still be subscribed.

I'm a little bit obsessed right now.

Citrus Twist is great for the price. Really cute stuff.

Scraptastic is more expensive, but I love their stuff.

I'm really loving the look of Cocoa Daisy lately and might sign up.

I've been looking at Gossamer Blue lately too...

What I really like in all of these is the exclusive cards and stamps. I like that Citrus Twist includes a 6x6 paper pack too - I think they're the only one that does that?

I subscribe to Studio Calico's Project Life Kit Club. I really like it. Only thing is that I wish it had square corners instead of rounded, but the quality of the card stock is much higher quality than that of Becky Higgins Core Kits or We R Memory Keepers kits. It is less matchy-matchy than either kit which I consider a huge bonus. Also, most months there are a few letterpress cards included, yum! There is an alpha sticker sheet and a stamp set. Really cute and the boxes to store them in are absolutely adorable - and perfect for taking to crops. I have been eyeing the Elle's Studio Monthly Kit (not subscription) they actually extended the sale price through the end of today due to e-mail issues. I find that intriguing but I feel the price point for what it is seems rather high. I have seen some YouTube Reviews and I'm not sure on that one.

I also sub to the Studio Calico PL kit and have been pretty happy with it. I really like the quality of the cards and the assortment of embellishments that it usually contains. I will admit sometimes they have a one off month but I imagine that happens where ever you sub. Overall I feel like I get more then my money's worth!

I sub to studio calico's PL kit.
I just received my shipment and love it so far.
It has lots of neat cards, embellishments and stamps.
And it comes in a wonderful PL box that's deeper than the BH one you see in stores so it holds a lot.

I just started subscribing to Cocoa Daisy. I looked at their last kits, and I really like them. I get my first kit in September.

It's not monthly, but I love Kelly Purkey's bi-monthly kits. It includes an exclusive stamp set, flair badges, letterpress cards, stckers, etc done in true KP style! The price point is reasonable esp. if you divide it by 2 (for the 2 months it covers). And the best part is that you can pre-order it. Not sure if I can post a link here, but if you ask Google, it'll point you in the right direction.

Having said that, I sub to Studio Calico, Cocoa Daisy, Scraptastic and KP's kits. And what's worse is that I'm considering between Gossamer Blue and CCitrus Twist Kits.

Gossamer Blue's new Life Pages kit is wonderful. The cards are really cute and great quality. There are lots of embellishments, an alpha and exclusive stamps. Septemeber's kit is beautiful!

I sub to Studio Calico and love it. It's very much my style because I don't like themey or kid-centered stuff.
I also like the look of Scraptastic pl kit, but it's not as good of a value IMO and more expensive.

Another happy CT subscriber here. They often include a mini roll of washi from an etsy store that's pretty cute.

Take a look at the past kits from a bunch of sites to see what fits with your style.

I sub to SC PL kits. I love the mix of colors, stamps, variety of embellishments. $24.99 per month shipped within the US.

I sub to Scraptastic's PL kit. I absolutely LOVE it!! It's very much my style and I love the exclusive designs by Ormolu and the stamp sets. And I really love that the cards are square cornered, I can either leave them that way or corner round them myself. What's also great is that if I want to skip a month I can with no problem.

I subbed to Studio Calico's PL kit for 6 months and while I did like it, it really isn't my style. I prefer a bolder color palette and I much prefer square corners.

I sub to Scraptastic and have been very pleased! The kits are so cute and I love the exclusive Ormulu cards and flair plus the stamp sets are great! Jessica is a sweetheart and gives wonderful customer service! There's a FB group only for members that's fun and there is no commitment! I can skip any month I want and pick right back up the next month. If you do get consecutive months you get a free gift! Usually a slick writer or an ink pad

Studio Calico - I don't do Project Life - hate all those pockets - but I love using the elements on my layouts. I find that I use my PL kits more than my main kits.

I was an SC member, but there seemed to be a lot of confusion and changes made to the kits and I was not in it for the twists and turns, but for the product.
That being said, they offer a lot of incentives for new subbers, just keep in mind there is a $15 cancellation fee before 6 months.
I just subbed to Freckled Fawn's kit, and will be using that with my supplies--I don't have to wait until sometimes the middle of the month to get a kit, nor do I have to wait for SC to ship items that were wrong the previous month...
I have heard GREAT things about citrus twist.
Thinking about it.

I subscribe to SC and I really like it. The cards are really cool and I like the stamps and embellishments. I think it's a good value compared to other popular companies. And if you subscribe to the scrapbook kit club as well I think you get even more use out of the kit because the cards use the same patterns and coordinate nicely.

I like Gossamer Blue and Citrus Twist Kits. I also sub to Studio Calico.

I was apart of Scraptastic, but right now I'm not having the best luck with them. I purchased a stamp from them because I didn't want the whole kit, so I bought the kit stamp. I paid for at the end of July and when I emailed the owner and asked if it was shipped yet she said no because I hadn't paid yet. Even though I paid about 3 days before emailing her. She kept saying I didn't pay, I screen shotted my Paypal account showing that I did. She replied back and said it was shipped on the 2nd and now it's the 14th and I have yet to get it. I asked for a tracking number and she said there is no tracking numbers available for regular first class mail.

I will never buy another thing from that site.

I sub to Citrus Twist. The kits are fantastic. But, even better, Trina is wonderful to work with. I've never had any issues with the kits, just extending my sub.

I've also subbed to Cocoa Daisy, before they had their PL kit available. Their customer service is also fantastic.

I subscribe to Studio Calico (started with the Feb kit) and I have gotten so much use and enjoyment out of my subscription. Studio Calico is very much my style, they have beautiful color palates, current and exclusive embellishments, the stamps are amazing (and I'm not a stamper) and they seem to have a good variety month to month. Subscription cost is only $19.99 which is cheaper than most places I've looked. Additionally, the box that the kit comes in is really wonderful. I am actually able to store multiple months worth of cards in a single box and it's great for other scrappy storage.

I've heard a lot of negative stuff about SC, but then I hear a lot of good too. I'm torn! I like the look of their stuff (and the price!), but don't want to get burned.

ThreeCs- the new August kits just went online today.
Check it out! HELLO YOU

I'm currently a subscriber to their Mixed Media kit,which I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE, but I really like their Capture-365 kit. If I weren't already subscribed to 3 other PL type kits, I'd get this one. My friend got the July kit & I wish I had, too.

I had subscribed to SC's kit and loved it, but stopped getting it in June. I didn't love the new designers for stamps and I wanted a little bit more embellishments. I got a couple of the Kelly Purkey kits and love them! And I just subscribed to Cocoa Daisy because Evalicious is going to be doing the cards for the kit now and I love her stuff.
