It's time for some show and tell! I got ahold of a scrapbook grab bag and a documenter grab bag from Studio Calico's recent sale. At first I was disappointed, but I realized there are some things in here that I'd definitely use!
Scrapbook Grab Bag: There were lots of goodies including 12x12 papers, stickers, rub ons, and confetti. I'm especially excited for the neutral alphas and hints of gold. I actually haven't used alpha stickers in my project life album yet, so these will likely be going in there.
Documenter Grab Bag: This one had some great items too, like 3x4 journaling cards, 4x6 journaling cards, wood veneer, a large stamp set, ephemera, and watercolor journaling cards.
Overall, I think Studio Calico's grab bags are a great way to get a mix of supplies, and I actually prefer them to the kits for the time being. I was worried that I might get a lot of dated/seasonal items and repeats, but I was pleasantly surprised. There were only a couple papers with dates (that could be creatively covered), and one repeat item (the brown plastic alpha).
Next time I'll show you the planner kits I picked up. Since I can't use all this stuff, I'm planning a giveaway. Be sure to subscribe for updates on that!
