This has been a long time in coming and a labor of love, announcing a new addition to my offerings! 


Needs A Kit will feature card kits and more to go, mailed right to you. Just add an ink pad and a stamp set of your choice. I will offer recommendations to you for inks and stamp sets that are designed around the kit. Your kit will include digital instructions that will be emailed to you after purchase. With my kits you will have the option to purchase the INSTRUCTIONS only for  $1. Shipping will be included in all kit pricing. My card kits will usually include 4 cards and envelopes. Occasionally I may create larger or smaller kits. 

Kits will have a limited availability of quantities. They will be removed from the SHOP once supply has depleted. 

If you have suggestions for what you would like to see for kit options, please email me. I love hearing your ideas!

On the backend, the Needs A Kit site is being hosted on Mailchimp, the bulk mail service I use. My website with MailChimp where my store is hosted is a hot mess. It is a WIP or work in progress. Rather than wait until that is completely set up, I decided to launch my store. Some of that can come later. You can grow with me. The site uses my Needs A Ribbon name, the store is called Needs A Ribbon but has a Needs A Kit landing page. 

If you are interested in a more extensive kit that includes an ink spot and is monthly, try Paper Pumpkin! See my Paper Pumpkin tab for more information and to sign up. It's only $22 a month and ships right to you. Paper Pumpkin uses printed thinner paper rather than regular cardstock. There are advantages to both kit options. 

Payments are collected through Stripe, as they have a partnership with MailChimp and MailChimps parent company Intuit, makers of Quicken and Quick Books. Ironically, my husbands first tech job was with Quicken when they were first starting out in New Mexico. If has a sense of irony at times. 

How Your Kit Ships



As you can see the card kits will ship with each card project in its own envelope with everything pre-cut, pre-scored, pre-punched or die cut for you. 

The emailed digital instructions will include measurements and a supply list so you can recreate your own projects later or purchase any of the supplies used. 

Example of items needed to finish your kit

As I mentioned above, you will need some ink or color and a stamp set or two of your choice or my recommended products to finish your kit. With Stampin' Up! I cannot include any stamped images, as that violates our copyright policy. I understand that. Their images are their intellectual property to do with as they see if and I respect that right. 


Picture are a few of the kits I have in my Kits shop currently.
