Best of Both Worlds :: My scrapbooking product picks for March 2013

March is the time when I do most of my on-the-road scrapping for the season, and pretty much every weekend this month will see me lugging my scrapbooking things near and far. This week not too far, but then a few trips long enough to require a passport – I’m off to Germany and Italy to teach. (If you’re reading in Italy and would like to come along, let me know! The event in Germany is sold out but there may be a few seats for you in Italy.) But long train journeys or no, it is now March! And that means a new set of scrapbooking product kits for the Best of Both Worlds!

Click here for the March 2013 Best of Both Worlds shopping list.

If you’re new to this idea, the basic principle works like this… throughout March, I’ll be using this set of supplies to make pages. You’ll see them in Sketch to Scrapbook page videos and other posts, like Starting Points. If you want to have the kit just like I do, click that link and add one of each thing (well, almost – more on that in a moment) and check out your order! BUT this set-up gives you the freedom to make changes for whatever reason: maybe you already have some items or some really similar items in your stash and you don’t need duplicates, maybe I’ve picked something that you would never use and you can substitute it for something you would love. Plus of course there is no subscription – you can join in on the months you want to and leave others out with no obligation, though of course it does take a little more effort on your part to check this post and click over and add the items. But it’s another option if you like the idea of a subscription kit but in practice it turns out not to be your favourite thing in the world. That’s the general idea!

Now, there is one thing to note about this month’s shopping list. I’ve included some options for the large set of letters, and I don’t expect you to order them all! With this kit, I really wanted to put something together that could be very feminine or by turning the papers to the other side, could be quite neutral or even masculine. It was an interesting challenge! But lettering is something you can’t just turn over and find the perfect set on the back, so I added some options and you can choose the set that is the best balance to your style: black if you prefer quite neutral titles, turquoise if you want something colourful that can work toward either masculine or feminine pages, or a rose-coloured glitter alpha if you want to fully embrace the most girly looks this kit can provide. There’s also a set of letter stamps on the list – it’s a set that is exclusive to Two Peas and is currently half off, which makes it a great bargain. If you like letter stamps, then this is a great time to add it to your collection and if you’ve wanted to try letter stamps but haven’t so far, this is a great way to add a good set at a fab price. It’s a really versatile alphabet in a size that works great for titles, subtitles, and embellishments. During March, I’ll be sharing a few different techniques for letter stamps, and they work specifically well with something that has some weight to the letters like this set. But the general idea with all that lettering is that you would choose one or maybe two from those options rather than all of them!

Of course you can also do other shopping while you’re picking up your kit. There are hundreds of new items, including the lines from Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, Maggie Holmes, Studio Calico, My Mind’s Eye, Echo Park, Bella Blvd, and Jenni Bowlin! Lots of great things to add to your stash, and don’t forget Two Peas offers free domestic shipping to orders over $50 or $5 off international orders at the same level. You need a code to claim that discount – it can be found at the bottom of the Two Peas newsletters.

Have a great weekend, wherever you may be!
