I really appreciate the unusual and original themes that The Scrapbooking Store offers! Having already done many of your more basic themes in the past, I find these themes refreshing and challenging (the good kind!). That being said, this might not be the best fit for someone just starting out. For me, though, I'm hooked!!
To be fair the quality of the kit is nice and the price point for the amount of pieces that come with the kit is spot on. You are definitely getting a bargain. With that being said...I was very unhappy with the monthly picks. I am a newbie to scrap-booking and thought a monthly kit would be very helpful. For January they sent us tropical themed paper. Its the dead of winter and I live in Ohio there is absolutely nothing I can do with a tropical theme in my scrapbook. I will literally have to wait till summer to be in MOOD to scrapbook with a tropical theme or even have the pictures to use for it. For February, one of the most romantic months, they send a cleaning house themed kit. Uhh I think they missed the mark a little bit on what type of theme to choose for February. I think this company has potential but there are some serious kinks that need to be worked out and then it will be awesome. I wish them luck.
I absolutely love it but I am a big scrapbooker each month a sinew scrapbooking paper which goes along with the stickers and embellishments that they send with you and this month's was awesome and so was last month completely love it worth the price for sure
