Scrapbooking clubs are becoming a popular pastime. Avid scrappers meet together once a month, once a week or more often to combine creative ideas. Some clubs are “just for fun” and others are for generating business. Some independent scrapbooking consultants form clubs to show their customers new products, new trends and project ideas. These types of clubs typically require some sort of purchase.
Many groups offer incentives for your scrapbooking product purchases. There are “hostess for the month” incentives. This means each member of the group purchases a certain amount of scrapbooking products every month and they take turns reaping the hostess rewards for the month.
There are other programs that have “popped up” in the industry such as auto ship agreements where you are shipped certain supplies every month. These programs and clubs are wonderful for loyal customers and enthusiastic scrappers. You might want to consider something like this if you want to build your scrapbook supplies, but don't have enough money to do it all at once. Clubs and purchase programs are good ways to get your products a little at a time.
I'm a huge fan of scrapbooking monthly kit clubs. Not only do you save money on the supplies in the kit, but many of them include instructions for page layouts and new techniques to try.
