The excuse that we hear most often from people for not scrapbooking or cardmaking is that they simply don’t have the time to do it. Cut Above® kits are the response to that genuine concern. Each layout kit comes with all of the pieces you need to complete two coordinating two-page 12″ x 12″ scrapbook layouts, including pre-printed base pages, pre-cut paper pieces and die-cuts, complementing stickers, and simple assembly instructions. Essentially, all of the cutting has been taken out of the scrapbooking equation, saving you tons of time and allowing you to jump right into the artistic and creative side of memory keeping that we all enjoy and love so much.

Similarly, our Cut Above® cardmaking kits come with all of the materials you need to create two each of an assortment of cards, designed especially for the season ahead. The kits include preprinted card bases in varying sizes, pre-cut die-cuts, coordinating stickers, and an exclusive stamp set and mini black ink pad to customize each of your card sentiments to use for any occasion.

Cut Above® kits are a wonderful balance of ease and creativity. While your pages and cards come pre-designed, you still reap the joy and benefits of creating something yourself and that comes together in just minutes, with an easy-to-follow instructional guide. If you’re just getting started as a scrapper or card maker, or would like to get started, Cut Above® kits are a great place to begin! Even if you’re a more experienced memory keeper or crafter, these projects will keep your creativity flowing and maybe provide inspiration for your own designs!

Take a closer look at the five Craft with Heart™ kits currently available, now through April, on our website and in the video below.

If you’re not quite ready to commit to a subscription, we have a few starter bundles that you should definitely check out! There are two scrapbooking starter bundles that each include a Cut Above® layout kit for one 12″ x 12″ layout, a stamp set, stamping block, and mini stamp pad to embellish your pages even further, a journaling pen and adhesive (you don’t even have to bring that to the table with these bundles!), and Memory Protectors™ and an album to safely store your completed pages!
