Monthly kits

Do you subscribe to monthly kits? I know a lot of the people I “run with” in crafting are mini albums, multi media, and 3D object crafters. One of my personal goals for the last few years was to get better at making cards for close family and friends and occasions that would warrant a card. During last years flood fiasco I was getting the Simon says stamp kits each month. Even while i didn’t have a craft area to work in. They just collected until I was able to get my room situated. 
Over the last 4ish months I have gotten really hooked on the 10 cards 1 kit videos on YouTube. And I have come to realize that I love multiple companies kits ๐Ÿ˜ฑ and not every month do I love the SSS kit I’m subscribed to. 
I follow Crazy Paper Chick on YT, FB, etc and I agree with what she said recently about 2017. I plan to unsubscribe from the SSS kit, and I instead subscribed to the Love from Lizi kit (she’s in the UK and her kits sell out way too quick!). I will watch the SSS kit releases and the My Hero kit release from Hero Arts. 
What is your favorite kit provider? Do you organize your kits? Keep them in their boxes? Divy them up? 
Also check out the kits this month from Simon Says stamp… it’s doodle bug and coffee/tea/cocoa themed and SUPER cute!! 
Would you like to see me do kit videos? 10 cards 1 kit like the youtubers? Or something different? 

It’s Friday

It’s Friday and the moon is out time get my cutter out do the twist then shout (Mary chapman carpenter song from early 90s made to fit a crafter). Well it’s almost the weekend!!!! What are your crafty plans? Me I have a crop tomorrow where I’ll be working on a baby shower gift for Sunday! Making it as simple as can be.

Do you subscribe to kits? What kits do you love? Me I am subscribed to THREE card kits: Simon says stamp, stampin up and love from lizi. I am thinking to stop the SSS and Stampin up though. I can buy the SSS without a subscription. But I just signed up for love from lizi and I’m super super excited! Her kits are amazing!!! She’s from the U.K. And her supplies aren’t the same as the US. She does get nuvo supplies though. If you’ve never seen her kits check them out and she’s on YouTube too!!

24 Hour HSN Craft Day

Whos watching HSN? Do you have items you HAVE to get from HSN? Do you watch all 24 hours?

Honesty here….. I’m NOT an Anna Griffin fan…. I think her stuff is pretty but I would NOT EVER pay the prices they charge for her designs. I dont care for the gold and tan.

I do have to say I want the WRMK tab punch board though! That would be great instead of the stand alone one you have to use the clear stickers for. OR to have to use the other punch boards to get a similar tab look.

what do you think?


Welcome to my blog! I’m super excited to get back to blogging and sharing my love of crafting and creating. I will try to post weekly but I may get tied up in life. 
If you don’t know me… my name is Jennifer! Yes I know you expect it to be Kathy or Kathrine or kathleen… or something of that nature. Why do I go by katt? Well one is I’m a HUGE cat lady! Haha I have 5 little feline babies running round my house and two pups. Second reason is when I was 19ish I had a friend tell me that I smile like a Cheshire Cat from Alice in wonderland. You know the machivious little pink and purple feller with a huge smile. Well people started buying me Cheshire Cat stuff! So forward a few years and enters my desire to be a part of the online craft community. I wanted to do videos but also keep my personal life more or less personal. So I came up with an alias, cheshireKattScraps. That was 3 years ago now. – well I have decided to more or less rebrand and start again in a way. The Kraft Katt house is my newish beginning. Everyone calls me katt. Be it online craft friends or in person friends. I get called Katt as often as I do Jennifer! (Legal name change??? Hmmm) 
Since I would like to establish a more inclusive craft genre and my cat entourage has expanded I decided on The Kraft Katt House. Did you know a “herd” of cats is called a clowder?!? Strange word! But since I know and am part of the ever growing group Kit and Clowder I thought to use another name. 

So 5 cats – I have Garfield (my love) who is an adhesive junky. Mystique which is our resident feline princess. Dino, who was going to be Dinah but turned out to be a boy. Binx, yes from hocus pocus, he’s my little boo. And Stout, who is named after dark beer (my husband named him) I call him stewie (family guy) or little butt. Stout is not very cuddly or so to say doesn’t care to be loved on. I in essence have a 6th cat that I rehomed to my grandma named Emily (grandma calls her Missy). 

For my pups we have Sandy, my baby girl have had her for 10 years this year! And my forever puppy named Skipper. He is “second in command” per my husband. 

I love my fur babies!! But I can’t talk about them without including hubby. He is terrific and MINE ๐Ÿ™‚ 

He supports me (even while grumbling at the bill ๐Ÿ˜˜) and encourages me to achieve my dreams. We got married in July of 2011 in sunny Southern California were we both grew up and immediately packed all our belongings (well some still reside with our parents haha!!) and moved to TEXAS! We love Texas and since I was technically born a Texan (Irving, Texas) it’s like coming home ๐Ÿ˜œ 

During the hours of 630 am to approx 6pm I am enroute or at work. My job is a Purchasing assistant for an outdoor retailer. I love my job and my co-workers. Some days are a challenge but it’s always worth it in the end! In 2016 (plus 8 days) I made 4 different trips for business. They support me and push me to stretch my limits in terms of abilities. And I am always awed and thankful. 

That’s enough non Krafty talk! Next up? A tour of the (messy) Krafty Katt House? Stay tuned!!!
