SCT is a free Canadian magazine available online and they do kits now and then. They are starting a little kit every month with a taste of what's new. Keitha and I have been talking about it. It's $12 US a month for a year or a bit more if you want to try it for less time.

And here's the link to their current issue. https://scrapbookandcards.com/current-issue/

Let us know. That’s a great price and I like the idea of getting a sampling of newer products. It’s why I’ve been happy with HKC. I like products from different manufacturers.

scrapbook.com generally includes an issue with your order. I've enjoyed the magazine and the idea of a kit is interesting.

This idea is super intriguing! I went to their site and I looked at their little video for the sampler. While $12/month is potentially a great price for a "kit", the photos in that video showed shots of like 6 papers, or 8 little embellishments. I guess that 6 papers could retail for $12, and some embellishments can be a few bucks individually. But I do hope the samplers are more than what the individual photos showed.

I've paid $12 per month for Scrapbook Generations page kits, that for $12, you got all of the stuff to make one double layout. So if there's enough in the sampler to actually sit down and make at least a single layout, I'd be perfectly happy. I'd be pretty content with 3-4 papers and a small handful of embellishments. Or a small stamp or die set with an ink pad. But it really didn't say much about the quantities of stuff that could be expected. I'd not expect a pizza box stuffed full every month for that price, but I'd like to have some sense of what you get for the price.

And the reason I'm getting all picky about it, is because the 6 month price point might be exactly the right price point to ask for as a Christmas gift from my mom or my MIL. But since it doesn't start up until January, there won't be any reviews to work from by Christmas. Maybe I'll just put a subscription to the magazine on my holiday list instead, since I actually need more supplies like I need a hole in the head (except adhesive - I always need more adhesive). :lol:

It did say it was 6 x 6 papers and some embellies. I doubt that it is inks, dies, etc. They don't normally sell stuff in a shop so wouldn't have a big stock to draw from like scrapbook.com or others. Definitely not enough for a double layout on its own.

Thanks Marianne - I was looking for some specifics, but apparently never looked in the right place. I'm anxious to see the first postings for what's in the sampler!

I'm always intrigued by a snack-sized kit but have to say the 6x6 papers put me off as I never use them. Never. I wish it were embellishments only. I also wasn't wowed by the sample video - not so much the quantities that seemed okay to me, but the colours; I'm so over all that generic, pastel stuff. But I'll watch with interest to see what y'all get and am open to changing my mind, I guess if trends in product and colours morph to something I'd use more. Too bad really; it's an excellent value for Canadians.

I thought I posted this but maybe not? The February kit made up for how sad the January kit was. Except for the silly die cuts with faces, it’s all pretty wonderful!

That looks like a pretty good kit/value for the cost Pam. Thanks for posting it.

SCT used to do bigger kits more along the lines of the monthly kit clubs, but they weren't by subscription and only issued them seasonally (quarterly). I kind of miss those; I liked that I could see what would be in the kit and order it if I felt I'd use enough of it. While they did have kits this past Christmas, I think they've replaced those with these monthly embellishment kits.

That is very nice, Pam. Glad it was better than the first one.

I have to admit, this month's is far superior to last month.

A HUGE improvement! Glad you got something you can work more with. I don’t know who started the idea of putting faces on every-single-thing but I personally would prefer having a face stamp as an option.

I blame Lawn Fawn and Doodlebug for the face thing. :lol:
