Yearning Kit


Scrapbooking from the Inside Out approaches kits differently. Each month the kit is designed around a specific emotion, and includes products that can help you express what that emotion means in your life. The club offers one mega kit with a 6-month subscription price of $42.95. The kit can be considered as a main kit plus and add-on in one package. A 3-month membership is $44.95 and kits can be purchased individually for $46.95.  One skip is allowed with a 3-month subscription, and two skips with a 6-month subscription. The club ships to the US and Internationally.

From the website:

We create our kits around a different emotion each month – and give you all the support and encouragement you need to dream, imagine, hope, and wish through scrapbooking. We are an online community for scrapbookers doing the ‘deep work’ of creating rich and meaningful lives. Our kits will inspire you like nothing else to put your heart on the page.

What’s different about Scrapbooking from the Inside Out?

Value ~ Save money – our kits come complete. The only thing you’ll have to add-on is your imagination. One price gets you patterned and specialty paper, two alpha sets, color, a stamp and cardstock. We customize each kit to contain just the right amount of a lot of fantastic embellishments, so you won’t be left with half-opened packages of things you won’t use.

Variety ~ We work with over 30 manufacturers to insure that each kit is cutting-edge, beautiful and innovative. Each month tells a totally different story – no two kits are alike.

Inspiration ~ Each kit is based on an emotion and developed using color, design and icons that reflect the theme. Our monthly Inspiration Page provides a music playlist, journaling prompts, quotes, photos and links that fuel your creativity. Our monthly challenges encourage a deeper kind of expression.

Heart~   At SFTIO you can be fully expressed without repercussions…and with artistic confidence. Our supportive, deep, and kind community of creative women share themselves through their art. Our focus is on YOU and your emotional life…what you love, what matters most and all facets of who you truly are.

Not a kit club…a kit community…explore YOUR inner world…

    I would definitely use the project for the “Be careful about what you wish for”! Lots of examples to choose from-lots of personal experience! Thanks!

  2. Margaret on November 14, 2009 9:54 am

    Okay, I twittered too. Profile-Aromasage. Be Careful What You Wish For! I would defiantly use this for my inspiration! All the best!

  3. Michelle Elford on November 14, 2009 11:19 am

    I would totally use this for a mini book of my last ever semester of college!! (right now!)

  4. wintam on November 14, 2009 2:33 pm

    I’d use it for our last trip to Italy album. Italy for us is an everlasting yearning… we just love it – the people, the scenery, the history, everything!

  5. jung a on November 14, 2009 3:26 pm

    this month’s inspiration is generosity. i would use this kit on family, especially my parents’ generosity.

  6. Vernell on November 14, 2009 5:02 pm

    I love the premise for this kit club. I would use it to do a layout about the things I desire to do but that I keep putting off for all the various reasons I tell myself.

  7. Vernell on November 14, 2009 5:13 pm
  8. Melinda Wilson on November 14, 2009 5:16 pm

    I love the colors in this kit and I would use it to complete a layout of my new room that I am currently working on for my older son.

  9. Delia W on November 14, 2009 5:31 pm

    One of my dreams would be to travel more often. And all over the world. I think the blue and blown colors will come in handy not only for the travel pages themselves, but also to document how little time we seem to have to do travel these days – lots of planning and saving and yearning to travel.

  10. Jane T on November 14, 2009 6:46 pm

    I would use the kit to do some journaling pages on generosity.

  11. erin on November 14, 2009 7:33 pm

    i would use the kit to scrap the big picture. i am loving this kit…and blog! thanks for another great giveaway.

  12. Rean C on November 14, 2009 7:49 pm

    I’d use this to scrap something for my favourite singer David Tao. Fame fortune love wld be apt as he is quite famous in Asia and he is seriously looking for love right now.

  13. Nicole on November 14, 2009 10:25 pm

    Love the colors, love the premise behind the kits. I like the idea of “the big picture” theme. I would explore this in the context of studying Buddhism for the past few years.

  14. mamta on November 15, 2009 2:49 am

    I would love to use this kit for mini book.

  15. Mary Lynch on November 15, 2009 5:11 am

    What a great way for me and my friends to share memories

  16. kristina howells on November 15, 2009 5:52 am

    I would use this kit to make ATC’s in crafty swaps and also RAK cards made using the kit. As I would receive this kit freely I shall be using it to make cards to RAK to people

  17. JPScraps on November 15, 2009 7:22 am

    This kit would be perfect for cards, a mini album, ATC’s, maybe even a little home decor :)

  18. Nicole Maki on November 15, 2009 8:04 am

    With a house full of boys, this kit would perfect for everyday layouts. We have such a hard time as most kits are so feminine.

    Love this. It’s absolutely gorgeous. Of to learn more about their club.

    Hope people go to check it out!!!

  22. Kris Dingfedler on November 15, 2009 8:44 am

    I have been wanting to make some journals for friends who no longer live close to me. Maybe even turn it into a traveling journal project where I create 3 journals, each of us gets one for a month or two, write about whatever we like, then schedule a time to send them to each other! We can catch up on life in a new form, instead of just talking on the phone, and maybe even add a momento or two so we can keep each other up on how life is!!!

    Now I’m super excited about starting a project like this!

  23. Piroska on November 15, 2009 8:45 am

    I would use it to do some nostalgic layouts of my ancestors in Europe.

  24. sandy on November 15, 2009 9:30 am

    I inherited tons of old photos from our combined families … these would be perfect. thanks.

  25. Janine R. on November 15, 2009 9:32 am

    Lovely!! The perfect excuse to work on projects about myself. for a change. Love the beautiful patterns,…exquisite! Thanks for sharing this awesome kit club with us!

  26. Billie K on November 15, 2009 10:18 am

    These are the current colors I’ve been saving for quilting….smile.

    This makes me think of my oldest DGD. She had an outfit out of these colors. Would be great to use those photos with these colors.


  27. Marie Phillips on November 15, 2009 10:55 am

    I would scrap about my yearning for a child. My DH and I waited 10 years for the arrival of our daughter, but he was unable to experience the joy that she is….he is no longer with us.

  28. Connie Reed on November 15, 2009 12:45 pm

    I would really like to do a book about my grandparents. My mothers parents were a part of my life when I grew up, so I did know them to some degree. My fathers mother lived across the ocean so I did not see her very often. My fathers father died before I was even born. I would like to get to know more about my grandparents.

  29. Victoria Warren-Mears on November 15, 2009 2:57 pm

    I would love to do a book about my work as my life gift to others. Each of my jobs has been a special mission in my life and I would love to chronical that gift both to and from others.

  30. Lea Molczan on November 15, 2009 5:18 pm

    Love these kits! I would use this to make a travel journal for an upcoming trip.

    I love the colors in this kit. It would make great cards.

  34. Tina S. on November 15, 2009 10:09 pm

    I would use this kit as the basis for an album on my “old people”, as I call them. Not only would I include grandparents, aunts and uncles, but I would make pages about some of the special senior citizens at my church that I look forward to greeting (and hugging!) on Sundays. A beautiful way to preserve memories of those who are important to me before they are gone.

  35. Catie on November 15, 2009 11:06 pm

    Hi there

  47. caitlin on November 16, 2009 4:02 pm

    wow this one is great for loads of things. i would probably use it for my photo album to look like an old picture like a picture of my dad when he was young or something.

  48. caitlin on November 16, 2009 4:04 pm

    i would do that for the brown paper for the other paper i would use in my photo album and making cards

  49. alecia on November 16, 2009 6:02 pm

    Yearning kit: I would make pages for my daughter, and all the things I wish for her. I’d also let her make some pages about her hopes and dreams! Thanks for the chance.

  50. liannallama on November 16, 2009 9:09 pm

    What a lovely kit! I would make a set of pages about the loved ones I have lost and yearn fo and what I would do if I had just one more day with each of them.

  51. Pinky on November 16, 2009 10:06 pm

    I did it! Love these kits!!
    I would totally use this kit to make some projects about inner yearnings, the things you cannot touch or see but FEEL, that love, support, and acceptance you yearn for.
    I know I would make one page about what I have yearned for and finally found…and one about what I still yearn for.
    Good luck everyone!

  52. Debbie Coe on November 17, 2009 8:17 am

    Beautiful kit! Love to make an 8×8 album for our coffee table with family events to display.

  53. Julie Luna on November 17, 2009 9:41 am

    I’m a new gramma so of course i would work this to scrap my new granddaughter.

  54. jennie on November 17, 2009 11:13 am

    Oh how exciting! Love the concept and that it would really push and inspire me to scrap ME! Fantastic!

  55. Crystal on November 17, 2009 12:24 pm

  60. Chelsea S. on November 18, 2009 1:10 am

  65. viji on November 18, 2009 11:00 pm

    Oh I would do my wedding album with this kit! Indian weddings are so colorful! These will look so beautiful with my pics! Check my blog to see some of the pics!

  68. Heather H on November 19, 2009 11:49 am

    I love the colours in this kit. I am starting a scrapbook of my father’s family history and the papers in this kit would fit well with older pictures. And the yearning theme would be interesting to think about the emotions of those ancestors and the paths their lives took (travel to a new country etc).

  69. Joanna on November 20, 2009 1:09 am

    I’ve been thinking about making some pages about my growing faith. My relationship with God took a hit this last few years and Im renewing it now. But I yearn for more faith, more peace. I’d scrapbook those feelings, those thoughts.

  70. angela gutshall on November 20, 2009 4:58 am

    I would love this kit to make a family album for my kids grandparents. This kit is so pretty and love the colors!

  71. Debbie on November 20, 2009 5:12 am

    I would use this kit to make a “things I want to do before I die” minibook.

  72. jane t on November 21, 2009 12:17 am

    I would use the kit to remind me of my faithful pet that we had to put down last week.

  73. Ginny on November 21, 2009 7:25 pm

    I think I’d use it for some of my fall photos, I’m loving the colors!
