Fun Gift for Scrapbook Fans

With so many new memory book supplies being introduced throughout the year, finding the perfect gift for your favorite scrapper is a piece of cake… or not.

Often crafters can get overwhelmed by the sheer number of scrapbooking tools, albums, paper and embellishments on the market today. This is especially true for busy scrappers who don’t have the time to research constantly changing product choices.

For scrapbooking fans with limited time to browse through stores or peruse new items online, consider presenting them with a kit club membership. The monthly clubs come with all the supplies needed to craft several layouts, but the best part is the recipient doesn’t have to leave her home to get in on the action.

When you join a kit club or present the membership as a gift, the company takes care of all the details. Not only do you get a package of supplies each month, but the items are organized, include step-by-step instructions, and are coordinated so you don’t need to worry about matching the paper and embellishments to your photos and mementos. What’s more, most kit clubs put an emphasis on sending out the latest and greatest scrapbook supplies. This is a huge bonus for memory book fans who don’t live near retailers that stock cutting-edge scrapbook items.

Another benefit to kit clubs is that most memberships provide access to websites which feature message boards or online forums. These virtual chat rooms allow you to connect with other scrappers who are creating layouts with similar materials. The forums are great venues to exchange ideas, ask questions or view sample page designs from crafters around the world.

Finally, depending on the kit club you join you may be eligible for discounts or coupons that can be used on future purchases, including additional supplies to supplement the basic contents of your monthly kit.
