Club Hopping

My first foray into scrapbook kit clubs came courtesy of a Christmas gift. I was given a membership as a stocking stuffer and loved getting a box filled with scrapbooking supplies in the mail each month.

It was only after my membership expired and I looked into renewing it that I realized that being part of a kit club doesn’t come cheap. In addition, I discovered there is a litany of kit club options that cater to all sorts of crafters. For example, some monthly clubs offer supplies specifically for altered art projects, while others are better suited for extremely productive scrappers who design 10-15 layouts per month.

When trying to find the perfect club to join it’s a good idea to evaluate your skill level, the amount of storage space you have for supplies and your style of scrapping. By reviewing these factors you will be able to find a club that best suits your needs.

The kit club I received a membership to was My Favorite Memories. The monthly supply kits were filled with contemporary designs and I had the option to skip a kit on any given month if I didn’t like the selected products that were featured. If I were giving a kit club membership as a gift I would pick Cocoa Daisy. The company offers unique supplies that you can’t find anywhere else. In addition, as a member of the kit club you have the option of purchasing coordinating supplies at discounted prices.

If you are looking for a kit club membership for a beginner scrapper I would suggest going with ScrapRoom. The company sends out monthly boxes that feature four individually packaged layout kits complete with step-by-step project instructions and a complimentary gourmet favored coffee sampler packet so you can enjoy a special treat while you work.
