Ever heard of Kaboodle? Although it's famous for more traditional shopping "finds" like shoes, purses, or make-up, I love using it for my digital scrapbooking dream wish lists. If I see something I like when browsing a shop or "new releases" newsletter, I will usually "Kaboodle it" and then, when I have a few dollars to spend, I shop my wish list first. I have extremely limited digiscrap funds, and this also helps prevent impulse purchases. Sometimes when I review my list later I'll realize that a particular kit, while beautiful, really doesn't fit my style, or that I already have a similar kit in my stash. By the same token, if I'm still madly in love with a kit a few days or weeks later, and know that I'll use it, I'll give in and treat myself!
Here's my top five on my Kaboodle wishlist right now:
"Sketchbook" by Three Paper Peonies
I can't wait to scan in some of Cai's drawings to use with this kit. That pencil is too cute! I'm buying this one as soon as I finish this post!
"Snap! The weekly shots" by Maya de Groot
I'm considering this set for my Project 365 photos. I like the variety of photo sizes.
"The Story of Us" by Vera Lim
I like the color palette of this kit, especially the blue. I think it would be pretty to do some layouts of Josh and I - I still have so many engagement/wedding/honeymoon stories to scrap!
"Holiday Cheer" by Cinzia Designs
Who doesn't have holiday photos still to scrap?! I love the fresh, bright colors and doodley elements, especially the banner. I am so obsessed with all things pennant and banner...
"Blogging for Bliss" by Tara Frey
My last pick isn't a kit, but I think it could make a world of difference in my blogging and my creativity in general. I'm definitely buying this one - Amazon has it on sale for just $6.82!
Do you have a "top 5" on your wish list? Thanks for being patient with me this week while I fell behind. I've got some exciting ideas in store for next week, including a post about "single-tasking" and one about tips for digi-scrapping on a budget. Until then - happy scrapping, and enjoy your weekend!
