I'm debating subscribing to it.

I love their sketch books (own all of them).

I scrap our three kiddos, ages 3,6,and 7. Would the layouts generally be appropriate for kids in these age ranges?

I've only received 2 so far. I like it. They don't come with a bunch of embellishments. Mostly paper and sketches. Go to their website because they are making some changes. They are positive changes.

I like it - i have a 1 yr old and almost 3 yr old. and most fit our photos. I have subbed for almost a year and a half - and I think out of the whole thing only about 6 layouts (2 super saver sets) did not fit anything I was looking for. 3 were wedding, and 3 were school. But, I will save them for when I can find a place for them

I think they are worth it! Themes that don't fit my needs are easily modified. It's fresh, current product that I wouldn't get a chance to use otherwise. And of course, the sketches are usable again and again.

Are the PP included from the same manufacturer or are they mixed from different lines?

You cannot beat the value of the Super Sketch Club but they have some other monthly kit clubs you might consider as well. I have 3 grandsons, ages 6 -13 and I subscribe to the Boy Crazy Club. That kit makes a 2 page layout and usually comes with extra embellishments. The cost is $14.99. They also have a Girl Crazy kit. If you subscribe to more than one club, you get a discount. I have subscribed to Boy Crazy for about 2 years and have never received a kit I could not use.

A little bit of both. It just depends on the layout.

I think it is a great value and i'm excited about the changes that are coming. Even if I'm not crazy about the paper I take the sketch and pair it with paper that I do love. I donate the paper that is not my style. I've been a subscriber for probably about two years now.

You definitly get your money worth in these kits! I recently cancelled because I found everything starting to look the same so I wanted to take a break. But I have used a few of the kits and they are super easy to put together a quick layout but still look really good too. Definitely a time saver and worth the money if you think you will actually use them!

I have been part of the club for a few years now. You really can't beat the value and they always use current paper lines which is nice. I haven't always loved every paper choice but on a whole I have been VERY happy. The customer service is AMAZING so if you ever have a problem you can just call them. I chose to double up from now on to get even more out the kits.

I have been subbing for almost two years now and I absolutely love it! I have scrapped for 16+ years and was always hesitant to join a club. Because of all of the positive reviews here, I took the plunge and haven't looked back!

I get the SSC and until recently, the card kit but I switched this sub to another of the LO kits.

I think at $20 it is a heck of a deal for 5 double LO's, plus, I generally had some scraps left over to make another double or two. I own 4 of their sketch books and tabbed some sketches that work great for scraps.

While I am making the Lo using the sketches, I also take out my own supplies and using the same sketches, make a few more LO for later in different themes.

I plan on upgrading to their "double up" which would be 7 LO and 7 sketches each month instead of 5 for $30. I cannot tell you how these sketches and this kit has helped my scrapping!

I do not think you will be disappointed!

I have gotten it for almost two years and love it! I recently used a bunch of the kits at a retreat and loved how fast I was able to make pages and they are some of my favorite pages. Another plus is when you are signed up there is not a limit of a number of months you have to get you can cancel at anytime if you decide it's not for you. Although if you are like the majority of us you will be hooked!

That's good to know about the option to cancel at any time.

That is another great point! The canceling anytime. Not to mention that Debbie and all of the SG girls for that matter are just as sweet as they can be! And super patient and kind! I love that it is they use the latest and greatest paper lines. if I like it then i buy more.

I just rejoined! It is the only kit club I have now. I have so much stash that I thought this would be the perfect way to get some updated papers, great sketches that I can use again and I LOVE fussy cutting! Yes, you do have to fussy cut for at least one layout. I'm also loving the changes! I'll be able to use stash AND keep up with some of the latest and greatest!

Blame Debbie for the fussy cutting!!!

Can't wait to do the double up, hopefully I will be able to get this when they are first available!!

Debbie, Karin and Stacey have all dealt with me on the phone and in person, Allison has also had the misfortune of meeting my scatter brained self!! Point is, they can always point me in the right direction and have gone over and above trying to help me out. Their customer service is absolutely second to none!

I've enjoyed reading all your comments on this thread, and I'm excited about the improvements to the club as well. For those who don't know, the bottom line is that you'll be getting two more sketches each month -- at no extra charge -- one by Allison and one by me.

You can choose which of our sketches you like best and want to use for that particular set of papers, and I'm going to be counting heads, because I've told Allison that I'm sure mine will be more popular.

Since I like to trash talk her about our layouts, this is perfect for me!

Debbie.... Question for you...

Will the sneaks show the layout using the same papers for each of the sketches... Even the extra ones?

I love seeing (most) of the finished look as I am terrible with conceptualizing!

Yes, we'll show photos of Allison's layout and my layout using the same papers -- twice each month -- before the second and third Saturdays. You can make the one you like the best (or opt to get extra sets of paper and do both!)

In other words, (excluding the Super Saver part of the clu we've both been doing one layout/sketch each month. Now we'll be doing two each.

Hope that makes sense!

Debbie
