Card Kit Creations

At ScrapShotz I've been introduced to the concept of Card Kits. They are so much fun! A card kit is an envelope with everything in it to make a card. There are a number of different ways they come into play.

One on one Card Kit Swaps
Sometimes someone will set up a one on one card kit swap where everyone that signs up to play is paired with someone else. Each person must make two card kits - one for themselves and one to mail to their partner. Everyone posts thier creations when they are done.

Card Kit Swaps
Sometimes someone will put out a call for a card kit swap with a particular theme. Everyone that signs up for it has to make a card kit for everyone else that signs up.

Card Kit RAKS
Every once in a while someone will post on the board that they have x number of card kits ready to go in the mail and the first people that sign up will get one, or everyone's names will be put in a draw for them.

I loved watching the creations people made with thet card kits they got. It was so much fun to see what different people did with the same materials. Soon watching wasn't enough and I wanted to play too. :)

Here are some creations I recently completed with card kits I've received:

The very first card kit I received was from a Stampabella Card Kit Rak offered by Carla. It took me a while before I got up the nerve to actually do something with the kit, but I finally managed to do it.



This one was from a Christmas Card kit Rak offered by Virginia:



Here are my creations from a one on one swap put off by Carla. My partner was Wendy. The first card is from Wendy's kit and the second from mine:





Card kits are so much fun! I hesitate to sign up often because I don't have much to offer anyone else in way of stamped images or nice paper but I'm thinking I'm going to have to invest so that I can play more. :)

These cards make me want to get into stamping...I've put it off because I know I'll be addicted! These are really awesome cards - all of them.
