I mentioned a few kits last Friday in my link-up and I thought… what if this Friday I did a kit related list? Yep, I like it. So here are five great kits to consider.
1. Studio Calico.
Known for their outstanding kits, and now they have card kits too, Studio Calico is always a kit club I recommend, and has been for years. Right now they’re taking pre-orders on an exclusive Ali Edwards December Daily kit. Here’s the info on that:
Record all of your magical December memories with Ali Edwards and Studio Calico! This year, we’re mixing traditional red, green and gold with a bit of modern aqua, grey and yellow from a variety of manufacturers including Studio Calico, Basic Grey, Crate Paper and Echo Park. We started with an exclusive 6×6 pad of 24 different paper designs, then brought in just the right embellishments – from washi tape to label stickers to veneer, enamel dots and more – to let you finish this 4×6 album in style. It wouldn’t be a Studio Calico kit without stamps, and Ali Edwards has designed a 4×6 set from Technique Tuesday exclusively for this album. ‘Tis the season for documenting all the merry, and we can’t wait to help you capture every moment. All December Daily kits will ship early November to allow plenty of transit time before the holiday season begins!
I’m loving their color choices, and all those festive details too. You can sign up for the pre-order and see more images here.
2. Basic Grey Soleil collection kit.
Yes, I consider the manufacturer collection packages to be kits. They’re excellent! Whether you go 6×6 paper pad or full collection kit! Personally, if you really love a line I’m all for the kit. You get the papers, some stickers- and it all coordinates perfectly! Soleil is a line I’ve been playing a LOT with lately, and I’ve just ordered a few more pieces so I can keep the Soleil fun going! It is available in stores now. You can find Soleil online at bluemoonscrapbooking, 2peas, and simonsaysstamp.
3. Lily Bee Persnickety
I’m loving all three of the new lines from Lily Bee, but I’m thinking Persnickety is the perfect blend of colors to do all kinds of scrapbooking with.
Still a totally unique look and amazing kit and vintage material source – can’t have this list without Jenni Bowlin on it! I love that Jenni Bowlin products – and kits- always blend well with past products, and future releases as well. The harmony means that anything I buy from JBS is guaranteed to have a nice long healthy shelf life – and won’t be going out of style. From the limited edition to the true vintage finds, kits to papers – I’m loving it all. This month’s kit looks like a lot of vintage fun – just check out that stencil!
With an exclusive stamp set (and other exclusives!), not to mention that you can always buy the kit once revealed (vs committing in advance), and that the kits are designed by people who definitely know their stamping and cards, this is another favorite. Stay tuned tomorrow for projects I’ve made with their latest kit- and the chance to win one!
Now what I’d really love to know is this – what are your favorite pre-made kits? It could be a scrapbooking line you can’t get enough of, a small embellishment kit source, kit club, or anything in between! Since we’re making a kit list I can tell you from experience I also really have had great experiences with Elle’s Studio, Scrapbook Circle, Scrap-Room, Evalicious, and Scarlet Lime for kits (some are regular ‘kit clubs’ some offer random kits) as well. I’m also loving October Afternoon’s Woodland Park, Rhonna Farrer’s Christmas line, Heidi Swapp’s Vintage Chic line, Glitz Designs Cashmere Dame line, and… yeah. I’d love to have a kit of any of those!
I look forward to hearing your favorites, perhaps adding a few new ones to my list as well!
Have a happy craft filled weekend!
