Question Companies that do kits??

I've been out of the loop for a while-took a 2 year crafting hiatus
I'm wondering if there are companies that do a monthly stamp kit-paper, ink etc included is fine or not. I'm hoping to find one that doesn't use a lot of black line stamps as I don't want to make the Copic investment again (don't ask).

TIA

My local LSS has a stamp of the month club - you get to choose from 4 stamps & the kit includes both solid & patterned paper. They also show suggestions for add on embellishments.

There are several companies that offer kits that I saw at the ckc last year. If the show isn't coming to a town near you, you could still go on the website and look at demostrator lists and find them there.

I know Gina K sells kits. They include stamps, cardstock, ribbon, brads, etc.

Stamp sets - Gina K. Designs, LLC

They offer clear or rubber stamps. Look for items marked "Stamp TV kit."

Disclaimer: Not affiliated with this company (or any other company!), and I don't own any of their stamps.

Close to my Heart sells scrapbook kits... They aren't monthly, but in the catalogs which change every 6 months. Kits include a paper packet, instruction guide, stamp set (exclusive to the kit), and embellishments.

Are you looking because you want to make cards or something else? Taylored Expressions has a monthly card kit club and then if I am understanding correctly, an option to purchase the exclusive stamp kit for the month for 50% off retail. Or something. Every time I stop to read I get distracted and haven't worked out all the details! LOL!

Flourishes usually has a monthly card kit for $20, but it you need to buy the stamps separately.

Memory Works sells monthly kits. I find they can be used for scrapbooking or card making.

I bought a few of these kits from the past catty or two and they are a good value. The stamps that come in the kit can't be purchased on their own and that's how they reeled me in. Their next catty comes out Aug 1st.

SP & Company has a monthly kit club. They come with paper and stamps and you have a 12x12 or 6x6 paper option, depending on what you want.

Unity used to have a monthly club for mailing out stamps too. I haven't checked lately if they still do but I got a 8x10 size sheet with stamps that were exclusive to members. I was getting way too many stamps so had to quit but I always thought they were a good value for the money.

Simon Says Stamp has a great monthly kit. Includes coordinating papers, trim, embellishments, stamps and an idea sheet. Each one is a great value.'the kits are really great to experiment with.

When I was getting back into stamping about 4 years ago, I bought a few of the Taylored Expression kits. I still have bits and pieces from those kits. They come with both patterned paper and coordinating cardstock, along with a bunch of ribbons and embellishments. The only reason I no longer get them is because I have more paper than I know what to do with now! LOL!
I would highly recommend her kits, though!

Many Stampin' Up demonstrators offer stamps in the mail kits. They include the stamps and supplies to make the projects, as well as instructions, etc. I don't think it includes ink, but that may vary. Just check out some blogs and it shouldn't take long to find some of them.

Check out Paper Made Bakery: Paper Made Bakery

They have monthly card kits perfect for stampers! Each kit includes stamps, a full 6x6 patterned paper pad, cardstock/envelopes and tons of coordinating embellishments!

Studio Calico has an amazing scrap kit club. Only problem is that it sells out very quickly.

Paper Wishes - HOTP has beautiful card kits. They call them personal shopper kits. They have them for different months so I think it's like a club you join and they send them every month. I have gotten some of their kits, but didn't join a club.

Avocado Arts has a monthly stamp kit.

Unity Stamp Co still does their monthly stamp kit.

Stamps of Life has a monthly kit.

None of these come with paper, just the stamps.

I think the Gina K Stamp TV kits are the best deal going. I've bought six or seven of them. They come with EVERYTHING! Plus, you can watch STV to see all the projects Gina made using the kit. It's $50, and worth every penny. They used to be monthly, but I don't think they come out 12 months a year now. Check the website to be sure.

I am thinking of designing my own A Muse Studio kits for customers, and I will definitely look back over my GinaK kits to see what she included, because I think she did everything right.

Unity's kit club was just the stamps, and one of the best deals in rubber, I think. I got my sister hooked on them, and now she's an Ippity Chick and flat out obsessed with all things Unity. **Waves to Noelle**

I just inquired about the Stamp TV kits yesterday. They do them every other month now.

I've found a great place to buy super cute card kits and mini album kits for fantastic prices. Check out kimscardkits.com to see the selection. Everything is included in the kits so you can have fun making the product.
I receive so many compliments from the cards that I have sent using Kim's kits. Love them.

Close to My Heart does a variety of kits, they're called Workshop on The Go kits.

They aren't monthly but a new series of them comes out every 6 months when the catalogs do. And I think they're available for like a year or basically, if your looking at the Fall/Winter catalog it's good until the next Fall/Winter catalog comes out.

Each WOTG kit comes with it's own exclusive stamp set. It also comes with all the embellishments you'll need for the kit and a paper packet.

You can choose between Scrapbook kits, card making kits, I know right now there's an Advent calendar kit and a Scroll Album kit.
