With The ScrapRoom’s “Flavors of the Month” Kit, you’ll enjoy the scrapbooking products that you crave, along with ideas and instructions to help you “get more pages done…” And, in order to make your scrapbooking experience with us truly special, we’re packaging a Gourmet Flavored Coffee Sampler packet with each month’s kit, the perfect companion to a box of scrapbooking treats!
