OMG I just got my new kit and I'm in love. I'm so glad that I joined. For one thing the amount of product you get makes it soooo worth the price. The packaging that it is sent in is pretty enough to make you not want to open it.

The kit itself is full of color (which I love) from a bunch of different manufacturers.

The most important part is Lori, the owner. When I joiined the waitlist to be a subscriber she emailed and got back to me right away. She is SO nice. She actually is appreciative of her customers, she sent me a thank you note with my first kit!!!

Here's to Gossamer Blue growing big for a really long time. I'll definitely be a customer!!

For those ladies looking for a kit club, definitely look at Gossamer Blue.

I agree it is a great club and I have been happy with all three of my kits. And Lori is awesome. Great CS to be sure.

I love the paper combos--and it's b-sides! Much easier to use that big prints.

I joined citrus twist one week and then gossamer blur the next! I've been so so so happy that I did both companies have such cheerful and generous owners I highly recommend them both!

I am on the Gossamer Blue team and it's a dream team, definitely. They do have a Project Life add-on every month, called the "Bits and Pieces" add-on. I would link to it, but I don't want to violate the 2peas TOU, and I think linking to the GB site might do that. Anyway, it is truly a wonderful kit and Lori is one of the most professional people I have had the privilege of working with in this industry. If you are on the lookout for a kit club, definitely check it out.

I saw this kit and love it...but I had already pre-ordered the SC kit and now this one is sold out, but it does look really awesome!! Can't wait to see what you all make with it who did get one.

Do they have a message board? Oh I need that in a kit club- it's part of the fun and excitement!
Not to be a downer- but they are brand new. I'm sure when they are a little older and experience some snafus people will start complaining about this or that there too. Everyone's nice till they start dealing with customers who are never satisfied Hopefully that won't happen to them Their kits are really cute!
I wonder if they will have exclusives? I'm all about that too- if I can get everything somewhere else I don't really get into the hype.
They do have an awesome design team!!

Hey, Cupcake Pea,
Studio Calico has a message board and everyone is all really nice over there! (You don't even have to sub to hang out there!) I also agree about going with established companies...although I do really like the look of these kits! So beautiful! And the design team did some great things with them too. This is definitely one kit club to watch...but I'm gonna keep my sub at SC for now!

I'll have to check Citrus Twist out tomorrow. I can't wait for the SC version, but I haven't heard anything else about it so I figured I'd check around. I'll check out GB too. Thanks!

Sorry, I meant the digital files come with the regular kit. Their PL kit is their bits and pieces kit someone said, and that looked okay. But Citrus Twist did a little sneak of their kit on their blog and it looks really nice.

Citrus Twist offers exclusive stamps and embellishments each month. If you check out the kit details you'll see what the stamps look like and get a feel for the exclusive embellies. In my first kit I got two exclusive stamps, vintage bits, and exclusive flowers and journal cards made for the kit. in addition to all that loveliness I received Prima chalk ink and mister huey spray with the main kit plus all the other papers and embellishments.
Gossamer Blue has exclusive Lori Whitlock cut files that are designed with the monthly kit in mind; I just love all the paper brands I have access to now.
Both companies have PL kits, whole kit add ons, DD, PP add on, cardstock add on, and embellishment add ons. Also each ones carries a line of essential products like neutral cardstock/ pens/ ink/ sprays, etc.
Both cost about the same but you get a whole lot of kit for your money at Citrus Twist and Trina just lowered shipping from 8.95 to 7.95 for main kit. Additional items ship free with your main kit for both companies.

I'm now a kit subscription believer; why not have scrappy goodness from various brands shipped to your door each month

I am one happy customer for sure!

It took me a few to find them. You go under past kits and on the bottom left it says add ons, and they're in there. I don't think it's against TOU to link to an add-on right? Here ya go... GB Add On

Caz - isn't that what the core kits are for?
Have you seen the new ones...super cute.
I love the one by Elise Blaha.

The GB Bits and Pieces kit is marketed towards PL and card making. It always includes a smaller sized pad of paper, similar to the SC card kit.

Emily i agree, the new core kits look amazing!!
The reason why i do not get them is i do not want my whole book to look the same KWIM so i thought if i could sub to a PL kit it could change up every month so it is always different
Just now i am using the card kit and 6x6 pads, but i am lazy and would love them cut down for me LOL
The kit looks nice though, she is doing an awesome job

Oh and if i can find a PL kit i will cancel my card kit sub, though it will do for now as it saves me cutting up my actual 12x12

You can still sign up for the class even if you didn't get the kit. Six designers, exclusive Becky Fleck sketches, and photography tips. Only $19 or less if you are a subscriber.

Oh and sorry for saying they didn't have a PL kit. I forget that is what the bits kit is. The name threw me off.

@cupcake pea. Lori has been in the industry a long time and has always been gracious. She is a great planner, highly organized and seriously always thoughtful. If that is who you are as a person, having a business doesnt change that.

And new clubs don't become old if you never take a chance
