I joined the Club Echo Park subscription service a few years back. I have loved everything they have sent me and have used parts of each kit in numerous projects. I did wonder how much I could make if I used every scrap of paper, stickers and accents that came with the kit. I decided to see what value these kits could have. My Carta Bella Flower Garden kit had not been opened and was a beautiful spring design, perfect for this time of year. This worked perfectly for this nice experiment. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I was able to make. I used my own collection of cardstocks (which you know I have plenty of), ribbon and a few accents I had on hand to embellish my work but everything else I had in my Flower Garden Club box. I did find that I ran out of flowers quickly. Luckily, Club Echo Park offer SVG files to cut images on my Silhouette cutting machine to match each kit. Using my Silhouette studio, I made a number of flowers in different sizes, which finished things up nicely.
I was able to make 4 crafts, 20- 8x8 scrapbook pages, 16-12x12 scrapbook pages and 32 cards.
Is the $35 Club Echo Park Kit worth the money? Most defiantly YES! I figured I was able to make $225 worth of product. I also love that you can skip kits you do not need. I will remain a Club Echo Park member for a long time!
