Simon says stamp May 2015 Card kit
I am going to try out a few card kits and see if it will get my creativity flowing. I usually get inspired by new scrapbooking items although I probably could get by on what I already own.
Anyway, I tried the simon says stamp card kit. This kit comes with some 6x6 papers, a stamp set and a few embellishments. It also comes with a few inspiration cards. Some of the paper was so pretty I didn't want to use it!
All papers were included with the kit. I have to say I was seriously impressed by the thickness of the cardstock! WOW! It was really thick and I didn't know cardstock like that existed! I stamped the two phrases on the card, added some stickers and a ribbon. :)
This card kit is shown below
The kit can be purchased for $29.95 or if you subscribe its $24.95. The stamp set and ink pad alone would cost that much. I'm not sure how many months I will continue the kit but I'm going to at least get Junes kit. I am not sure if it is worth that much of my craft allowance each month. That is probably the scrapbooker in me. I would like a kit that allows me to do 12x12 pages as well as cards. I also would like that kit to include stamping which is why I got the simon kit.
I am also going to try a kit from Stamps for Life. I am super excited about trying that one. I would love to have stamps and dies to match.
