There are so many types of kits out there in the digi-scrap world. What kind of kits are you looking for? Maybe this will give our designers some ideas they can run with :-)

A dance kit. I'm having a hard time finding one I like. I want one that covers more than just the ballet aspect of dance, and that is all that I am finding.

Oh and a cute park cute. I have about a million park pictures, but I don't think I have come across a kit made for the park with cute park WA and such.

I also want to dance kit to be funky and girly and feminine. I don't know if that is a possible mix. LOL I want it to be fun and funky for the dance class photos (I have lots of those!), but I also want to be able to do feminie ones to go with the ballet photos and the dance recital ballet photos. My daughter is going to be in Hip Hop, Creative Movement and Tap this year, so I want something that covers all of that. LOL

What dance classes do your daughters take?

I had a hard time finding anything but ballet kits for dance too. I'm (was) a ballroom dancer & dance teacher and have lots of ballroom pictures. I also need a good train kit. weird that I don't have one.

My oldest will be starting her 3rd year in Sept, not sure what class she is going to be in yet though. But they do all sorts of different styles at her school. My youngest will be starting her first year and will be a princess ballerina! I'm excited to have them both finally old enough to do it!

My daughter is 3, and she will be starting her 2nd year of dance in September. She was in creative movement and tap last year. Creative movement is basically ballet. They are so darn cute to watch, aren't they? My daughter loves having dance class. I signed her up for a dance camp over the summer, and she had a blast in that too.

Train and park kits would be fun. I have done several park LO's, but I have so many park pictures another kit would be an awesome find. I'm not really sure what kit I'd like right now. My scrapping skills have taken a siesta. I think of scrap page ideas when I'm not in front of my home computer and when I get there I can't remember what I wanted to do. I should write them down, but usually I'm not in a place where I have a pen...either showering, driving or sleeping!

This would be fun. I have pictures of Gabe helping to clean. He loves to do the dishes. I let him "wash" dishes that I've already washed and aren't breakable. He says "I'm Mama's dishwasher".

A USMC kit too! Ginger has a great Army one, but there are too many Army specific things in it. Ginger should do an add-on to the Army one that is for Marines. :)

Just thought of something else... I would really like to have an element pack of the necessities.. Staples, stitches (black & white) (straight & zig zag), brads, clasps, fasteners.. Maybe in silver and gold.. Something that would be my "go to" in case a kit doesn't have those included!

I decided I really want a Movie Kit. I know there are some out there to buy and I just might have to do that because I have a LO I'm itching to make, but need a movie theme, but overall I think it's a good kit idea to have here at GS.

From what I've observed, if it's not flowers for fillers, it's stars. I feel for the designers on this one. When I try to think of what the "perfect" boy kit would be, I come up with a total blank myself. I have no idea what would be in it. Boys are hard to scrap! I have a much easier time doing pages for my daughter.

Sarah

Fillers for boys:
cars
*staples*
buttons
stars
dirt
legos/blocks
shapes
spills ;)

I do like the idea of a car themed LO. For an overall good "boy" kit, though, I think of Teri's Tinkerboy kit.

Yup...Tinkberbell is a great kit. I've used it a few times!

Another idea for a boy kit is one that has some graph papers, airplanes, buses, cabs...but like mostly light colors or white. I have so many bright kits, I would like one that is doodlish and white/grays/light in color.

Yes I agree that the big boy kits are hard. I did His Teen Scene and that was tough. I couldn't think of anything older boys like.

I do have a soccer kit, but it's in my retired stash. Maybe I need to revamp it and put it back out?!?! I have so much on my plate right now that I don't know when I can do that though.

I am new around here and I have to say I just love it here! I have been looking for a boys tumbling/ gymnastics kit. My son is on the all stars team and he's 6. He has been in the sports/gym class since he was 18 months old and I have a tun of pictures of him tumbling and the rings and all but really no kits that go with them. I am also looking for a really cute baseball kit. Thanks for any suggestions!!!

Hi Chris! Glad you're enjoying hanging out with us here at GS! I check this thread from time to time for inspiration, so you just never know when your idea might pop up! Thanks for helping to inspire us!

(NO it's NOT the same as American Football ;) so they won't do the trick ;) )

These are the kits I look for... I want to buy things that help me use/accent what I already have... I look for kits that have multiple uses not one theme... and the last criteria is the papers are a mix of soilids & matching pattern papers which are solid color ( I don't like it when a paper looks like if I held it up in the light you could see through. Sometimes designers try to make their papers lighter by washing the color out of the paper in the middle, because they don't know how to make the paper lighter by use of colors. It's just easier for them , I don't know how it is done, to maybe turn up the opacity until the center of the paper has hardly any color in them. That's what it looks like anyway. I hope you understand what I'm saying.) throughout the paper and the design on the pattern paper should be sharp , clear , very attractive , and matches at least one solid in the paper pk. Embellishments should match the kit of course, but also be able to used in many situations. I like at least one element that has glitter on it or is made with glitter. Price is also a factor. I know it takes hours of tedious work to make a kit and you should be able to be paid for doing what you do. Designers are artists, but I won't pay for a kit that is over $6 and if I do spend that much, the kit must be perfectly done...nothing blurry...nothing with little pixels of things that hang off the sides of elements and I should be able to make the elements very large and still have the same quality it had at a smaller size. What good is an element that can't be resized for larger projects? I have many ideas of product I want ,but can't find, if anyone is interested. This is just a general answer.
