I just canceled my SC PL sub. After browsing through various other PL subscriptions so far I like what Citrus Twist has to offer. Love the brighter colors and playful mix of embellies.

If you have subscribed to this kit, what did/do you like and what could you have done without?

I'm a subscriber. I like that the kit comes with a 6 by 6 pad... I use this size often. I find that the stamps tend to be useable (they aren't so specific that they don't apply to me if that makes sense). I usually like the cards and embellishments and always upcycle the twine from the packaging. The only thing that I haven't really used is the label sheets that they print and include with every package ....they've ok, just not my thing.

I love them except for the label sheets also. I also don't use the sequins or confetti that sometimes comes with the kits. My 4yo daughter gladly takes them off my hands. I am happy with the rest of the kit.

ETA the customer service if the best. Trina is great!!

I love this kit and it's the only one I've kept after subbing and cancelling Studio Calico and Scraptastic.

The 6x6 pad is great, and the lines she chooses are nearly always something I'd buy on my own. In fact, I had to stop random scrap shopping, esp for 6x6 pads, because they *always* showed up in my next CT kit.

I find the items to be generous and a good value, unlike some of the other kits I've had. There's almost never anything I need to give away because it's not my style.

Disclaimer: I've met Trina in person as she lives near me, but I don't get anything for this post

I subscribe to Studio Calico and I'm overlapping a Citrus Twist subscription to make sure I like it.
The reasons I chose CT were that they have a 3 month option (so if I didn't like it I could cancel then), great customer service (Trina was fantastic at responding to my questions quickly), the stamps are cute and affordable, and the 6x6 paper pad. I noticed that the papers that were included in the kits were often ones I had longed for here on Two Peas. The add-ons are great prices, too.
I have only gotten one kit but I agree with the others about the labels- I might use them but I don't need them. The rest of the Sept. kit was pretty useful! Not a sequins/confetti girl but that's okay.

One more kudos for the excellent customer service at Citrus Twist. I also like getting the 6x6 pad every month. It's a great way to augment my stash AND give a bit of variety to the kits.

Like everybody else, I think their customer service is just amazing! Trina is really on top of things over there. I also just love their stamp sets, and that you can add on stamp sets. The cards are really great and the 6X6 pad is a great addition and what sold me on the kit initially

Plus their designers are really great for inspiration too!

Trina is great! Love the stamp sets (always order the add on stamp!), and the 6x6 pads! Lots of cute stuff included, and a great price.

I sub to both CT scrapbook and pocket life kit. And love them both. My favorite thing about the PL Kit is the 6x6 paper pad (which always seems to be exactly the one i wanted). Love the colors of both kits and you definitely get your $$ worth.

I am thinking of subscribing to their PL kit. Do they have a referral program? I'd like to be able to help a fellow pea.

Im on my second kit and I agree with what was said here. Great customer service! Your package comes when they say it will, and is a good value. 1000 times better than SC.

Love it and always look forward to it every month. Not into the labels. Sometimes I add on the extra stamps because they are just plain cute and useful!
