Adornit (scrapbook company) has started a new SCRAPBOOK KIT CLUB. I'm so excited about this new venture for them. They promoted the first kit in an email blast last week, and it sold out in five days! If you got in on that deal you're a lucky girl.
Belonging to a kit club assures that you get something happy in your mailbox each month. (Since all the good magazines are closing or going bankrupt, finding fun stuff in the mailbox is getting harder and harder - unless you're an insomniac who loves QVC.) Adornit allows you to order the kits on a month-by-month basis, or you can pay for a six-month subscription and just wait for the fun to automatically arrive.
Kit clubs are businesses that are usually run by women who love scrapbooking so much and are so good at putting things together that they want to do it 'professionally.' So they fix up kits with coordinated contents and clever names, start a web-based business and send them out. I've tracked kit clubs for a year now and it's interesting how many of them come and go.
Adornit is different because they are an established scrapbook manufacturing company and the kits come from stock already in the warehouse. Adornit's kits are called "Busy Women Kits." I love that they aren't based on holiday or seasonal themes, but rather a general themes that anyone can use in a scrapbook. This month's kit is called "My Favorite Things." Janet Parker wrote up the blurb to advertise it and did a great job. I was thrilled when Carolee and Georgana gave me a kit to play with while taking some time off. Opening the kit and seeing what was inside made me want to start scrapbooking right now. And since everything was included - papers, ribbon, rub-ons, tags, stickers, letters - I don't even have to tire myself digging through my cupboards of scrapbook supplies.
So there you go - my excitement for today. Tomorrow I'm going to finish at least ONE scrapbook page using stuff from the kit and post it on this-here blog. That's my challenge. I'm going to bed right now, so I can get rested up for my big day.
