Silhouette Cameo is in the house!!

I have received my Cameo!! I am so excited, and overwhelmed! Does that make sense? I want to do so much, but have so much to learn.
 My scrap room is a total mess! I'm in the process of moving to the garage. That should be done this weekend. Hints.. should be! Can you function in a mess? I thought I could till all my table tops got full and totally disorganized! I am about ready to pull my hair out!
Back to the Cameo! I don't want to vent to much on that hot mess!
I have changed the front plate to blue chevron paper from the Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic paper pad.
I then made a treat box that is the free shape of the week. I got my inspiration from the Silhouette Blog. So cute! And perfect for Halloween class treats. :)

Have you done anything crafty? What do you do for your kids class?

Kit Clubs... Oh my!

I am now in four different kit clubs!
I started out with Studio Calico PL Kit, which I love. It has a good verity of different things. Such as precut cards for PL, flairs, embellishments, washi tape, and alpha letters. You have the choice to buy kits monthly for $24.99 plus shipping, or become a subscriber and purchase for $19.99 plus shipping. There subscription is for six months. You can cancel before then with a $15 cancelation fee. Go HERE for more information on the kit and subscription.
My next kit club to join would be Citrus Twist Kits. HERE is a picture of the September PL kit. As you will see you get everything SC offers plus a stamp set AND a 6x6 paper pad. I am loving the clear stamps! Not only do I use them in my PL but also in my Filofax. Subscription is three months for $18 plus shipping. Single month is not offered. For the PL kit you have to subscribe for 3 months. For more information click HERE.
Scraptastic Club is the third club I found. HERE is a picture of the October PL kit. Now, Scraptastic is a non commitment club. You can cancel or skip a month at any time. You just email them by the 20th to notify them in time. You can go HERE for more information!
The most recent kit club is Hip Kit Club. Now this one isn't PL themed. You can go HERE for a picture of the October kit. As you can see it comes with 12x12 sheets of cardstock. I don't mind that since I have a 3x4 card punch. I can make my own PL inserts with that tool! I think the main thing that caught my eye for this club was the embellishments. The kit cost $25 plus shipping as a subbie price. The regular price is $30 plus shipping.
Are you part of a kit club? What do you like most from the kits? Are you a kit club junkie, like me?! Lol! My plan is to stop the kits once I complete the subscription time, and then choose which one I like the most. How will I decide that? I have kept the kits separated and will see which one I have used the most. Should make the decision easy... right?!
