I'm still on the waiting list...but I'm wondering if the kit is worth the money? Or is it all just cards to put in the pockets of PL?

I got it and love it, so much so I have joined waiting list for a 2nd kit. The quality of these cards is amazing they are like 2 or 3 times thicker than BH ones. So can not wait for Febs to arrive its stunning


Happy Scrapping

I agree with Caz I purchased the January kit from another Pea because I was still waitlisted. My sub starts with the February kit.
The weight of the cards is much better than the BH PL kits.

If you check out Sasha Farina's gallery you can see how she uses the PL cards and embellishments on 12x12 layouts. Sasha Farina SC Gallery


Januarys kit had the following:
31 Project Life Cards (Studio Calico)
Geotag & 2013 Badge (Studio Calico)
"Make Something Today" 4x3" Transparency (lifelovepaper)
Enjoy the Little Things 4x3" Stamp Set (Studio Calico+Hero Arts)
Aqua Mini Alpha 4x6" (Basic Grey+Studio Calico)
1 White Arrow Clips (JPTAmerica)
Red and White Chevron Washi (Freckled Fawn)
Woodgrain Die Cut Labels (Studio Calico)
White Polka Dot Little Bitty Bags (Whisker Graphics)
Yellow Stars Stickers (Studio Calico)

I loved the January kit!!! The quality of the cards was great-nice and thick and easy to write on. I love the SC aesthetic, so I definitely think the price is worth it!!!

I used almost everything in the Jan kit and anxiously awaiting the Feb kit.

I am also signed up for the Citrus Twist PL kit, and although I might regret it I am going to let that sub go after the three month sub. Their kits are beautiful and you get a TON of product. The jan kit had 12x12 paper, a 6x6 pad, journaling cards, thickers and embellishments. I just found I used way more of my SC kit and I am trying to cut down on stash "collection".

Okay...thanks for the info. I was thinking about it again today and realized I never checked on the responses. I was thinking of canceling from the wait list because I still haven't heard anything. But maybe I'll hang on. The problem I'm having is that I just cut up my own papers and use my embellishments for Project Life and I wasn't sure I "needed" pre-made cards. But it looks like there's other things in there too...am I right???

Yes there is more than just cards.
I'm not sure if you are a stamper BUT the stamps are AMAZING! IMHO the stamps alone make the kit desirable. The cards are very unique and because they are double sided they are versatile. The only down side is that the 4x6 cards are not many. But I figure I can use up my paper for that.

I signed up for it sight unseen, and was not disappointed with the contents or quality. I think I have the clip, some of the star stickers, and a few cards left.

My issue? The card sizes in my kit weren't uniform. Some slid right in, some were a tight fit, and several I had to trim a little off the sides.

I signed up the day they announced it last year. January was great, but in my opinion.....February is even better. So many goodies. I use this + a BH kit + my own cards/things that I have made to make it look custom.

SC does such a nice job and feel they really design so well.

Hi peas,

I have been on the fence about signing up. I'm having a hard time determining the sub price. Can any of you share how much it is per month?

TIA!

I believe it's $19.99/month with the sub.

With shipping my price was $28.95, but I have had a couple extras from the 'shop' added to my package.

I've considered canceling my subscription, but I do like the stamps and some of the extras that I can't purchase elsewhere. So for now, I'm a happy subscriber.
