It is a new year...and a new Kit reveal!



It is a brand new year!  Can you believe it?  Did 2016 come in quietly for you?  Or with a BANG?

Our VERY FIRST KIT for the new year is a fun collection from Scarlet Lime!  Did you know they have a planner kit club?  Happy Sigh  I have a very practical planner and it works for me, but I do enjoy thinking about a more creative approach to organizing my work and daily life.

We are going to be inspired this month by Scarlet Lime's Planner Society Kit Club and the cute kits they pull together.  We are not expecting you to make a planner, but instead use the kits as inspiration to make your own kit...to create layouts, cards...whatever you wish!

The kits are a bit tricky to find to get a good look, so I did a some leg work and found some good resources so you can take a nice peruse.


Are you ready to get started?  Our Master Forgers have been hard at work getting their kits ready so you can start the year with some great ideas!  Make sure you wish them a happy new year and show them some love on their blog posts.  They certainly deserve it!

    1. Whatever works for you! I always like having plenty of choices - who wants to spend more time searching for things when you can just include lots of goodies right from the start?!
