Monthly card making kits are a great way to build up your supplies especially if you are just starting out with card making.
And it can be quite a buzz getting your box of goodies each month!
There are lots of options out there to suit every budget and style of card making.
The kits are usually themed depending on the time of year and include a mixture of supplies (stamps/ink/matching paper/embellishments etc) with ideas for card designs.
Each company offers different items and the price varies depending on the products they offer.
Most ship overseas so you need to add the cost of shipping to the price of the kit.
There may also be add on's that you can purchase to expand the potential of the kit for an additional cost.
Here's the kits I've managed to find.....
