I'm not sure why I didn't realize this, but I didn't know that there were sets of cards in the kits that were the same. I was thinking all the cards were going to be different and was a little disappointed when I opened the box to look at them and saw that there are 25 of each and some have 50 that had the same side. Why did I not know this!? I think I'm only going to keep 5 of each and selling the rest on fsot. I did buy some plain and grids so I can do my own and maybe I will buy another kit and just keep part of that one also. Can't believe I didnt know this,

Well, I think I might have known this last year, and I did cycle things in, but after a few months, I did get tired of them and ended up cutting up papers from my stash. I didn't understand why people bought multiple kits, but now I think they wanted to be able to change up their colors!

I didn't realize there were so many multiples until I bought my first kit recently, a baby one.

I'm hoping to find someone who wants to split kits to avoid that in the future. Maybe we should start a PL match-making thread

I learned that last year, with Clementine. Honestly, you get SO MANY cards in a kit, there's no way, if you're doing a picture a day, that you would use them all in a year. There's what -- 500 cards in a one kit?

About halfway through the year, I split up my Clementine kit and sold half of it here, as the OP is planning to do.

And I got bored, too. I'm a graphics person -- I like strong graphical elements, and to see the same ones over and over would drive me crazy. So, for this year, I'm going to use whatever strikes my fancy. I have some Simple Stories, I'm buying the Olive PL kit, and I'm sure I'll use some stash. I have a lot of October Afternoon bits and pieces (die cuts from their Miscellany and Flower Sacks are AWESOME for this).

That is one reason I really like Seafoam. I am going to use a lot of the journaling cards as bases to add embellishments, washi, stamping, etc because several if them are super basic. I also got the Digi kit so I can recolor or add in patterns.

But I also may add in other stuff. One of the new SS lines or possibly the new PL kits in may. Sharing one would be great!

If anyone is splitting their cherry or amber kit, please Peamail me. I would be interested. I was just looking to purchase yesterday off Amazon, but didn't want 500 cards as I don't do traditional PL stuff.

I really like the idea of sharing products when doing Project Life. So many things to pick from now but I really do not want to have a lot of repeats in my album.

The kit I bought was clementine. I would love to do trades of 1/4 of this kit for 1/4 of any other kit but not baby or cobalt. If anyone just wants to sell 1/4 of a kit I would love to buy it otherwise and can try to sell mine if need be.

I want to play! I have Clementine and Cobalt-barely touched.
Would be willing to split 1/4 of each with one or two peas. I'd be interested in 1/4 Cherry or 1/4 Turquoise. Peamail me or post if that works for anyone!

Fun thread!

I would love to trade 1/4 of my Clementine for 1/4 of your Seafoam.

Let me know if you are interested.

Glad to see so many others are able to help each other out. So did everyone else know when you originally ordered a kit that the cards would be the same?

pbrooks, I would love to trade 1/4 of my turquoise for 1/4 of your sea foam. Just let me know!! I will peamail you as we'll.

If I can arrange these last 2 trades, I will be all set with 1/4 a kit each of turquoise, cobalt, olive and sea foam. I think this was such a great idea!!! Gotta love the peas

Can we do this again when the new kits come out???

A mixed pack is a good idea or make mini kits of the main ones. I also think everyone splitting is a good idea. I liked a few of the new ones that are releasing in may but was planning on skipping because of the dups. But I will have to keep an eye out on 2peas for splitting kits.

In addition to what I posted above (turquoise, clementine and cobalt), I also have Baby Boy and Baby Neutral sets that I would be willing to split as well.

Looking for Seafoam and several of the new sets for May.

I am so confused on who has already claimed which kits

I have 1/4 of Clementine....I would be able to trade for 1/4 of Seafoam or Olive. I have bits of Amber and Turquoise left, but I have used so much already that I dont think it would be enough to make a 1/4 of each.
