Studio Calico Kit Subscription is a Go!

By now, anyone who's seen/read my blog in recent times, has an idea that I'm a huge fan of the ScrapMuch? crew and their scrapbook kits!

While I do *love* their kits, as they're well put together and always contain papers that I love to use, I have found that they are too "scrapbook-y for me.  Being a company that specializes in scrapbooking, this doesn't come as a surprise at all! I'm glad I subscribed with them and was able to take advantage of their kits and recommend that scrapbookers all over the world try them out, since they have VERY reasonable kit prices & shipping for such great product!

Seeing as I'm more of  technique kind of gal, I decided to try out Studio Calico kits for the more varied type of product they offer. While ScrapMuch? kits were very easy to use and go through without issue, I think I will enjoy the challenge of Studio Calico kits since the product offered in the kits are not as streamlined and thus will likely make it more challenging for me to go through them as fast. LOL

To summarize what I ordered, here's the high level detail...:
  • 20 sheets of cardstock, 10 in Kraft colour
  • 16 sheets of patterned paper
  • 10 sheets of vellum
  • 19 different types of embellishment packs
  • 3 stamp sets

I hope I will like these kits as much as I loved ScrapMuch? kits, but with anything new, there will be some kind of adjusting to be done! I'll be doing an unboxing on camera and will post the video here once it's done! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you have any opinions on the SC kit, please feel free to leave them in the comments section!!
