Card Kit Club: Paper Made Bakery

{Reported by Ashley Harris}

Well good morning!  Today I will be sharing with you a brand new card kit club out there.  It is called Paper Made Bakery.   So let's go!

Presentation:   I don't know about you, but when I open a kit, I want to it to be nicely put together.  Well organized and easy to get to.  This kit was well put together.   It was in a clear bag with a label on the back stating all products included in the kit.  FABULOUS!  I loved that touch.  The cardstock and envelopes and the embellishments all have their own separate bag, yet bagged together.

Usefulness: This is a card kit.  There is only one focus.  Cards.  So for cards, crazy useful. 

Cost effectiveness:  $31.95 For this cost, I am a little torn.  Yes, you do get a complete stamp set and yes you get free shipping.  However, you can only make a total of 10 cards which are pre-cut for you.  I think that there needs to be a bit more put in the embellishment bag to justify the cost.  

What I liked: 

- I liked the packaging and the way it lists all the products in the kit.  LOVE THAT!

- I liked that you get a full set of stamps and paper pad.  

What I disliked: 

- I would have liked it better if it gave you full sheets of 12x12 cardstock so that you can cut the size of card you want to make.  Please note that if they were to do this, shipping costs would go up and since the shipping is included, the price of the kit would go up.   

-It would have been nice to have more embellishments.  There isn't near enough to make a full 10 cards that are included in the kit.

What I made:

Supplies:  All supplies from Paper Made Bakery March 2012 kit

Where and How Much:Product Name: March 2012 Paper Made Bakery Card Kit
MSRP: $31.95
Available at: on March 1st.

Bottom Line:
I really did enjoy this kit.  However, I am a layer it up, embellish it up, kind of card maker.  So the lack of embellishments hindered that for me.  If you are a clean and graphic card maker, this is the kit for you!

What do YOU think? Is this a kit that interests you?  Are you all for the A2 card size or do you like a variety of sizes?  Let us know!

Great review, Ashley!

I always make cards that are 5X7 because they fit the envelopes I buy. I never make other sizes. Maybe I should break out a bit...? The papers look great, but I like a lot of embellishments, too.

I have to agree with you - I have thought these looked kind of fun, but the price point for what is included seems a little high.
