Q & A: What Kit Club Should I Join?

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Today 2-28-08 Minibook

I need your help! I got this question and I think many of you will be better at answering it than me! I’ll leave my own answer with two recommendations, but if you have a kit club you’ve been using that you love, please share (with a link) by leaving a comment!

So, I’m a new member at Paperclipping and started listening to the Round Table (playing catch-up …)

I love crafting but what has always hold me back is my lack of creativity and inspiration … I’ve also a problem with space: in my little 1 bedroom apt, I’ve no room ;-( I could use the little kitchen table but my Lovely DH can’t stand mess … We also don’t have much storage …
One other big trouble with me: I get overwhelmed at the store with so much choice :-/

I was thinking that maybe joining a kit club would help me start a little collection until I figure out what I really like and use out of those kits …
So I come to you to ask if you would have a company you would recommend me ;-)

Thank you for your time.

PS: I really like your Podcasts and Videos

Sincerely, Karine (fdgtgrl)

I do think a kit club would be a great solution to get Karine started!

What I Would Look For in a Club

Some clubs are collections of products from one company line. I recommend Karine go with a club that mixes products from multiple companies instead. I think eclectic kits will be better at helping her decide what she likes and will introduce her to more of what is out there.

What Kit Clubs Do I Recommend?

I haven’t tried many since I live near so many different scrapbook stores. One I have tried twice and had a great experience with is Cocoa Daisy. They bring in guest kit designers who choose the products. I like that the products are so varied and different but all looked great together.

Most of the products in my minibook above and below were from one of the Cocoa Daisy kits a while back.

I’ve also been wanting to try Studio Calico. They seem to have a nice mix of manufacturers along with their own products.

Audience Suggestions

I know there are a lot of you out there who have much more experience with kit clubs than I do! What are your favorites? Please leave a comment with a link to a club you recommend! Thanks!
