Beach Scrapbook Pages

 This is absolutely not an ad.  I get nothing for saying this, or sharing this, other than...hey, isn't this fun?  I recently went to a retreat with some friends.  Some of us do quilts, and others do scrapbooking projects.  One of the gals who came had this box from a scrapbooking club she joined.
 Again, I'm just sharing because my Mom is getting into scrapbooking, and this is the second 'club' we have found for her.  My friend said it ends up costing about 30 dollars after shipping each month, but it comes with a different theme of papers, and if you are a scrapbooker, you will know that's not too much.
 Here is what it looked like inside the June box (which she VERY generously gave me because I fell in love).  There were tags, ribbons, stencils, bags, and all sorts of papers, cards, quotes etc to use for this vintage beach theme.  Each month has a different set of papers and goodies.
It also included some instructions for different ideas of things you can do and lay out ideas.  I went online and also (like Paper Pumpkin, which my Mom does), you can see what other people have done with the kit.  I used it to scrapbook some pages from a beach trip last year, and all the doodads on the page (minus some buttons I added and letters) came from the kit, and I have tons more to play with in the box.  
I probably won't join right now because I have so many unfinished projects, sure was a fun box to play with, and I might give it as a gift to some folks (cough, Mom, cough) who do have the time for things like this kit o' goodies!
