We're thrilled to welcome Clique Kits as a sponsor this month.

Clique Kits is a scrapbook kit club founded in April of 2014. We were a group of friends who were looking for a new outlet in the scrapbook industry after the MemoryWorks company closed their doors. As consultants with MemoryWorks who served on the design team or as a guest designer, we knew that we would miss the daily interactions we enjoyed with like minded paper crafters on the MemoryWorks forum. Observing losses of numerous pillars of the scrapbooking world both online and in brick and mortar, led us to believe that other scrapbookers would welcome a chance to continue to acquire a variety of new, trendy products conveniently and economically! As a result of much brainstorming (still ongoing) with a focus on sharing, supporting others in creative small businesses, and preserving our memories, Clique Kits was born! 

​Currently, Clique Kits spans from Europe to Australia and across the U.S.A. and has grown into this business from "our basements". The name Clique Kits is a play on the word "Click" for the sound our cameras make recording memories, and is also a tongue in cheek metaphor for our ever-widening circle of friends who are anything BUT clique-y. This outlet lets us share our passion for memory keeping through our kits, blog, and social media community and is always friendly and supportive. Together with our design team, we strive to inspire our members and friends with tutorials, creative inspiration, articles, videos, inspirational blog shares, and much more! In our first year we quadrupled our membership and sold hundreds of limited edition kits in addition to our often unique school store products sourced from the indie, handmade, and fair trade markets. We now have over 15k Instagram followers and 7000 Facebook fans and our interactive community online continues growing.

We're excited to welcome another new permanent sponsor, Cocoa Daisy.


Cocoa Daisy started almost 10 years ago as is a monthly kit club selling carefully curated scrapbooking products, delivered straight to your doorstep. The idea was all you had to add was your designs and photos, we give you the rest every month. We've stayed true to that original concept, bringing you beautiful scrapbooking kits packed with papers, embellishments, and alphabets, but as the industry has changed, so have we. We now have three different varieties of kits that coordinate together every month!

Our Memory Keeping: 12x12 kit for the traditional scrapbooker. 
Our Memory Keeping: Pocket kit for the pocket scrapbooker who loves to do Project Life.
Our Planner kits for organizing your life in a very beautiful way.

Each kit can be used independently or together, mixed or matched. We have two different design teams, our Memory Keeping Team and our Planner Team, each sharing how they incorporate the different kits into their creative lives. Join us at our site or online for plenty of inspiration.

Cocoa Daisy is donating a goodie box worth at least $35.00 of product, either in the form of a kit or scrapbooking products. This prize is eligible for residents of the United States or Canada.
