Next up on our company profiles is our newest company, Picture It Made, owned by Michelle Nommensen and Jamie Retzloff. The company officially opened for business in September 2007 and offers a wonderful selection of monthly kits but before you ask, I have to tell you -- they are NOT a "kit club"...there are no membership or enrollment requirements. They simply design scrapbooking kits, card making kits, and project kits for a variety of occasions and themes, and allow you to purchase only what you want when you want or need it. They also have add-ons such as additional paper or embellishments (stamps, chipboard, ribbons, inks, etc.) for taking the kits to the next level of creativity as well as options for taking our kits to the next level of creativity.
Not only is the tag line for Picture It Made "The Art of Scrapbooking...Simplified." -- it is also their mantra. According to Michelle, "We believe that scrapbooking is a very purposeful 'hobby' and thus, the goal for our kits (and company) is to help people along in the creative process, especially those who are new to scrapbooking or just feel overwhelmed by all that is out there. What makes Picture It Made different is the fact that many kit companies out there are 'clubs' and offer 1-2 larger general kits that would be hard to adapt to certain scrapbooking themes such as baby, boys, girl's sports, etc, and also contain a large amount of similar product. We wanted to provide a kit environment similar to how people scrapbook or paper craft...want to scrapbook some of your daughter's soccer/basketball/softball pictures? We have a kit for that and an adorable one at that!
If you haven't checked out their selection yet, don't wait -- click HERE. I love their wide variety of papers and embellishments! The quality is excellent and the variety is wonderful. There is truly something for almost everyone.
Until the next time...
