Scraptastic September Kit















{reported by Allison Waken}

I'm here today to review a kit and addon from Scraptastic Club! I got the September 2012 Just Beachy Kit and September 2012 Just Beachy Add On




I have no shortage of summer/beach photos so I was happy to review!

What I liked:
-The variety of items was great! I didn't feel like I needed to add anything from my stash to finish off any of my pages.
-The colors and items were coordinated well and everything just flowed together.
- I loved the exclusive Scraptastic Club cutouts!
- All the embellishments and tags.

What I didn't like:
I don't think I can come up with anything I didn't like! The kit had everything I look for when choosing a kit, paper, lots of embellishments, alphas, and exclusives.

What I made:

I like to have all the pieces necessary to compete several layouts. Papers, embellies, etc. It makes it go faster.

I love lots of embellishments in a kit! Looks like the add-on would be great for that. Thanks for the review!

Miriam Prantner said...

I like to have a good variety of embellies, definitely alphas and some tags, and I love when kits introduce you to new etsy shops/small businesses. I also like it when there are stamps involved.....it's like the kit keeps giving that way.

Patchi said...

This kit looks like a lot of fun. I like flexible kits that can be used for cards and scrapbook pages. I also like skipping options, so I don't need to buy a kit that is not my style.

Gabrielle said...

Scraptastic is great. She gives you options for kits and add ons each month unlike some other kit clubs out there, and her prices are very reasonable.

This is the second time I have seen this kit reviewed...hmmm I need to check them out more closely!!

Cari said...

Stamps are great in a kit. I also love when it provides instructions for different projects.

The thing I like about kits is having all the coordinated papers & elements right there at the ready. This looks like a great kit club!

I don't have a lot of experience with kits, but this one looks good. I like the colors and I especially like that it had so many embellishments and alphas to choose from. I also enjoy stamping, so if it had stamps, maybe even in the add on kit, that would be nice. I would love to win this to use, thanks for the review and the chance to enter!

Carol L said...

Your pages are wonderful! Each one has a true feeling of summertime fun, and I especially love the "hang loose." The papers and glittered alphas all look so great together! Thanks for a great review!

I don't have any kits from a club - I tend to collect too much stuff as it is!!! Although I do have lots of complete lines of October Afternoon! But I keep looking at all the kits, and thinking they look so fun! This is no exception!

I would love a club that was every other month and that allowed you to choose from a number of options. For me it's hard to allot the money regularly for something I didn't personally select.

Renee said...

I look for kit clubs that offer new release products, stamps, and flexible contracts - don't want to be forced to buy a kit I don't care for.

ShoppingTamii said...

this kit looks fantastic, and I love what you did with it!

Joyce Pritts said...

I love kits because they are all coordinated for me and I don't have to spend hours going through my supplies to find appropriate pieces. The kit looks marvelous!

Robin B. said...

I have belonged to several kit clubs and I find that I like to have double-sided patterned paper, 1 set of alphas, cardstock and lots of embellishments. I don't need stamps or albums.

Yaritza said...

They have a good assortment of colors and supplies but I think a stamp would of made it a perfect kit.

Heather Landry said...

Jessica offers a stamp add on with her kits every month with a variety of different stamps. They aren't included in the kits because not all scrappers are stampers, but they are available as an option!

This is the September stamp add on...

I've gotten Scraptastic Club kits for two years now and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Madeline said...

I was also going to point out the stamp option available each month. The stamp add-on is carefully chosen to work with the month's kits. and in case it wasn't mentioned, Scraptastic puts out TWO kits each month, so you get a choice...and sometimes that choice is hard! ;)

Barb Prendergast said...

I look for a kit that fits my "style". It has to have a good balance of patterned papers and a variety of embellishments. I look for a good value for the price, reasonable and quick shipping, too. Scraptastic is all that and more!

Linh C. said...

I like kits to offer some items that are unique to only their kit club.

c.darwin said...

Loving all the summertime elements in this kit! Your layouts are beautiful and really show off the range of products. The stamps really give it something special.

Jojorenee said...

I like to have the latest and the greatest mfg papers and a coordination of what is put together with them an a few embellishments,that with a good price and shipping sets my sail!mekepooh1@hotmail.com

Joni Parker said...

I love kits to take to crops...so nice to have everything you need all in one spot (no searching). This club looks awesome...gonna have to go check them out... one of my kit clubs expires soon so maybe a good time for a switch... LOVE LOVE the Hang Loose layout .. the pics is hilarious and I love the little touches of twine & flags peeking out!!

Cute pages! I love the right mix of fun papers and embellies. Plus a little something new/different or unexpected.

I have also been getting kits from Scraptastic for going on 2 yrs now! I love that they are always jam packed full of paper, embellishments & Alphas! I also LOVE that you are not locked into buying each month! I can't say enough great things about Scraptastic Club kits! They are just fantastic!!!

Sharon Fritchey said...

This kit looks awesome! I love the review and your layouts, too! I have just started getting Scraptastic kits (I have gotten two kits so far!) and have loved them both!

Andi (RrlScrapGal) said...

Wonderful kits! And yes, I would love to win one - even though I am a subscriber!

Lisa said...

I love the layouts you came up with. they look terrific. I have my eye on this kit club. I've been seeing them advertised lately. Would love to try out this kit.

jcinokc said...

I have been in a kit club before and I like to have lots of different types of embellishments to go with the papers. That looks like a great kit. Thanks for the chance to win!

I have never tried a kit club (I like finding items in real life too much) but when I look at clubs I love stamps, fun embellishments and one of a kind vintage pieces.

ScrapMomOf2 said...

I've seen this kit club mentioned a lot on Facebook, and I was curious about it for sure! The kit you received is really great, and I love the projects you created! I've always liked getting kits, because all of the fun coordinating is already done for you . . . but unfortunately, sometimes the budget does not allow! Cute, cute, cute! Thanks for sharing your awesome layouts!

lynda said...

Love your Hang Loose LO - what a priceless photo! In a kit, I would consider the price, awesome papers, something special like a mask or mist, different sized alphas, journaling spots, & creative embellis.

Keianna said...

I love embellies. The more variety the better. This kit looks great. Thanks for a chance to win.

petunia670 said...

I love kits, I've subbed to many over the years. The things I love the most in a club are unique - Etsy or homemade items, mixed manufacturers (not all the same line) in 1 kit. I want a few sheets of cardstock, not too many, alphas are good. Thanks for the chance to win. Really love the Hang Loose lo.

i love the bright colors!

Rebecca Ednie said...

I love kit clubs. I haven't been a member for a long time but it would be great to try out another. Rebeccacell@gmail.com

rlovew said...

Looks like a fun kit. I am a member of SEI's kit club. I like the colors in this kit. I like to have a good amount of embellishments as well as paper and I want things that are more generic (I don't have kids and so many kits out there will not work for me because they are too kid specific). rlovew1976 at yahoo.com

Khristen said...

I love this kit club...sometimes I can't decide and have to get both :) It's been over a year, and I haven't missed a month. Jessica has an amazing eye for detail, including so much in the kit that all work perfectly together...the exclusives are always so cute, too!

Lisa C. said...

The Scraptastic kit looks awesome! I like a good amount of embellishments in a kit. And I love your layouts!!

Emily Todd said...

Tons of embellishments! I love it when they are alterable as well!

Miranda Ables said...

For me, lots of embellishments aren't the key to a great kit, though they're nice...I think embellishments can be made with a craft knife and great paper. I do however, want a kit that's inspiring. When I see a mix of non-traditional or unexpected patterns and colors my brain starts jumping. My favorite layouts are always made of the unexpected and it keeps me creating!

ruth said...

I love a variety of paper and embellies and must have an alphabet. :) I love Scraptastic!!!!

scrappin_in_AK said...

it's a wonderful kit. Personally I love to have lots of different embellies.
