I've just released my first ever monthly kit on etsy!!!

Several of my friends have been encouraging me to release kits and I've been pondering it for some time–now it is finally happening!

This isn't like a regular kit club at all. Every month around the 25th I'll create a new mini book and/or layout kit that will be sold exclusively in my shop. There will be a limited number of these on hand so when they're gone, they're gone. The kits will remain up in my shop until they have all sold out. If you want one, you buy it like any other item. If you want to skip a month, skip. There is no subscription, no obligation.

Newsletter subscribers get a special discount or gift every month and they get to be the first ones to hear about the newest kit — so sign up for my newsletter over on the left to get all the info ;) This month subscribers get FREE SHIPPING!

Each kit features fabulous finds from my shopping trips, lots of details, and plenty of charm. Here are a few more details about this month's kit:

“Home Is Where the Heart Is”
A 6×8 Mini Album Kit

“Home is Where the Heart Is” features a series of stacked chipboard inner pages adorned with floral accents, hearts, and charming trims all built around Bella Blvd's “Estate Sale” collection. Rich browns, soothing periwinkle and sweet pink details are featured on the 16 inner pages of this mini. All diecuts and papers are already cut for you, borders punched; all you do is assemble!

To purchase this kit simply visit my etsy shop! Kits are shipping within 72 hours (24 hours in most cases) so you can get started creating by April 1st.

And if you're still reading (cuz I know I am long-winded) then let's do a little giveaway!! Leave a comment here and tell me what kind of kits you'd like to see in the future and you'll be entered into a drawing to win one of these “Home is Where the Heart Is” kits! I'll choose one winner on April 2nd and post your name here on my blog (if you want to make sure I can contact you to let you know you've won then leave your email addy or sign in so I can get to your blog and let you know that way). So please let me know what kind of things (kits, colors, themes) you'd like to see in future kits and you just might get this kit for free ;)

Happy Scrapping!!

  1. Hey Jennifer, I would love to see boy, family & travel themed layouts. I have 3 boys & have lots of pictures of them to scrapbook. I’m not too picky on the colors for the layouts, just nothing too girly for those layouts. :) I’m feeling lucky, I hope I win. Thanks for always inspiring me. Melisa Alzammar

  3. Wow, good for you! I’m sure the kits will sell quick. ;)

    I’d love to see some that are really girly and full of pink, and then also some with browns/greens/khakis that I could use for family albums or other things.

    Thanks so much for the chance to win…
    – April

    P.S. Sorry about the deleted post above…I hit enter too quick and the spelling was horrible!

  4. I am so exciting about this news! I have been visiting your blog for the last year and half. I just love your style and the way you can produce so many pages and the way you tell us all the secrets of your success! I just wish I lived closer so that I could participate in some of your classes that you teach!

  5. This is awesome!! Congrats girlie!! I love your mini albums, so definitely those, but your home decor projects are pretty amazing as well, so maybe some of those. I have lots of friends who love your layouts and they would probably love some layout kits, too. Maybe a use all this stuff with no leftovers kinda thing. Like here’s 5 sheets pp, 3 pieces of cardstock, ribbon and some rubbons, etc. then all the cutting instructions with how to use all that paper with no leftovers to make say a few layouts, a couple cards and maybe some cute tag-like embellishments. I am so excited for these and I wll definitely be telling everyone at my crop on Saturday about them!!! (and I am sure I will be picking up a few of these kits myself!!

  7. How exciting for you! I love you mini albums, home projects and layouts. It would be great to have any of them as a kit! Oh I know how about a fancy banner kit, that would help dec out my scrap room! Themes… boy stuff for sure. I have hardly done anything for my son because I never know where to start. I guess it would be good to find boy stuff I like and not have just girlie stuff around! =)

  8. Well since summer time is just around the corner, (or at least it seems that way!) maybe some vacation/camping/travel themed kits would be cool! Love your first kit, it’s really cute!!

  10. That is the cutest album kit! I’m so excited to see you expand! I would love to see one of your banners in a kit, perhaps different holiday ones! I always want to make one, but I know for me I have all I can do to keep up with the pictures to scrap, let alone other projects so those would be great!

  15. Yeah! I’m so excited! As for themes for kits….I’ve got tons of tap/ballet pictures so a dance kit with lotsa pink and black would be cool! Also, anything to do with water since we go to the river all the time. Thanks, Nicole

  16. This is a very cute book!!! Some themes I would want to use are home improvement, beach/cruise, maybe a “garden diary” kit (like to put your seed packets and record pictures and notes about your garden). I also agree that some banner kits would be cool – especially some that could be used a lot for major holidays and birthdays. Best wishes on this new business venture :)

  17. IT’s about time, Jennifer. I knew this day would be coming. If I have no plans, I may be able to attend your April 10th crop. ((keep your fingers crossed))

    I love to see girly things…lots of pink/brown, teal/black. Actually, anything girly, LOL

    Congrats and good luck!!

  18. Love your work, found you from the Bella Blvd blog! Congrats on the kit! I love what you did! I have a son so all my stuff tends to be boy related. Love the idea of page kits also.
