Tidbitz in Time supply their kits worldwide - The kit costs $42.95 (£27.00) and shipping is included for the USA. International shipping is charged at a flat $10.95. This cost is also reduced if you decide to join the club to just $27.99 (£17.50) plus shipping charged at $7.95. International membership is $38.95 including postage.

I’d say this kit is larger than most kits – there are plenty of papers and a fantastic number of different embellishments. It’s a little more expensive than some kits but, in my opinion, you get a lot for your money, and if you do subscribe the cost is really not an issue.

There are a few interesting and unique items in the kit too, such as the genuine vintage buttons and fabric roses. It is items like these that put an individual stamp on a kit, and this one will not disappoint. I loved the variety of embellishments, too. There are certainly enough bits and pieces to make quite a few layouts without skimping on your embellishment usage! Does anyone else struggle with a lot of left over papers in kits once all the embellies are gone? I know I do. Well, that’s not a problem with this kit!

The kit arrived safely and was well packaged. Nothing was damaged when it got to me. I’d definitely say that altered artists would especially get a lot of use out of this kit, as well as scrapbookers and card makers. Everything in the kit was very well coordinated, not only in colour scheme, but in style too.
There were a couple of negatives for me. I was a little disappointed that there was only one set of tiny alphas in the kit, and I would have liked to see papers from different manufacturers, but that’s just my personal opinion. Looking back through the past kits on the website there are usually more substantial alphas included. I love the tiny alphas, but I felt that they got a bit lost with the big patterns in the papers. Some people might be put off by the lack of cardstock but, as I said in a previous review, I have TONS of the stuff, so not a problem for me ☺

In all, in terms of what I’m personally looking for in a kit, the big selection of embellishments completely outweighed any of the negatives. This kit goes a long way. The sample layout I created for this review was fairly heavily embellished, and it barely made a dent in the kit!

This kit is well thought out and a lot of care has been taken with choosing the contents. It was exciting to open the box, and that’s often the most important part! It got my creative brain working just from sifting through the contents – mission accomplished!
