Confession: I own 13 Studio Calico Kits and have never made a layout. Sad. I Know. Truth but I didn’t know how to scrapbook or what would be my style. I would look at the kit and think oh look at all the pretties! I would file them away in the brown paper bag and that’s it.
I have learned a lot since I began my subscription with Studio Calico. It was about time i started using my kits! This month I made a decision, I will attempt to use the kit. I will say my first thought was, Oh My! This is something….what ever would I do with metallic gold doilies…yuck! I will say that is the first thing I thought. I looked at all the papers ..hmm….what am I going to do with this. Here is what I came up with:
Now that I have my style developing here are my thoughts regarding kit subscriptions.
1. I Will I be able to get $40.00 worth of pages out of this kit.
2. Will I like the pages or am I just making something.
3. Will I have enough to embellish like I want…or do I have to dig in my stash to add more embellishments.
I will ask myself these questions over the next 3 months and make a decision. I have been spying out kits from these companies also:
Scrapbook Circle – I like this kit alot!
Gossamer Blue- I like the double alphas
The Scrap Room-Ok, I don’t like this month at all!
Scraptastic Club-Love this!
CocoaDaisy-not my favorite this month.
Do you subscribe to a kit? If so, what’s your favorite?
