  1. Tiffany and Tracie, I just started listening to Scrapgals with this episode, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have been creating my own kits for over a year, now, after trying two different kit clubs that simply didn't work out well for me. I wound up giving away more of the kits than I was using because after the first kit in each club, the offerings just went further and further away from my style. I decided that creating my own kits, from both new pretties, as well as coordinating items in my stash, I would LOVE the combinations I put together. How could I go wrong? I love scrapbooking this way, and it has helped me use up my stash, as well as inspired me to stretch creatively. I hope your listeners will try putting their own kits together and experiment with their paper-crafting style in that way. Thanks for a great episode. The two of you are delightful, and I will keep listening!

  2. New listener as wll but have been an avid YT watcher for about a year and also love Nicmackin's style! It's worth watching her old posts. In two of them she breaks down on exactly how she makes her kits from collections. I tried it with an Amy tangerine collection and it was life changing. I made an entire 12x12 vacation album and a mini album as a gift and still have product left.

  3. Oh my gosh- I didn't think anyone was as literal a scrapper as I am! Tracie, I'm a kindred spirit!
