List of things scrappers look for in a good kit

I've been wondering what makes a great digiscrap kit.
What is essential and what is desireable and what do scrappers hate?
So I asked them...
  • Papers:
    a mix of plain & patterned papers that co-ordinate well.
    theme-related patterns.
    at least one neutral solid.
  • Theme-related elements
    several with real variety (not 4 different versions of the same thing)
  • Notions:
    ribbons, ricrac, string, twine, rope, wire.
  • Clusterable elements:
    flowers, leaves, twigs, branches, ivy, buttons, swirls, glitter, beads, stars, hearts.
  • Frames
    different shapes.
  • Fasteners:
    stitching, prongs, clips, brads, staples.
  • Wordart
  • Journaling:
    blocks or tags
  • Alphas:
    good, but not essential.
    Other important aspects:
    • Elements should be original and unique (especially flowers).
    • Flowers should have leaves to go with them.
    • Realistic sizing between elements. For example, birds should be smaller than trees.
    • Wordart language - offer US & UK spellings, and tell buyers you will gladly offer translated versions if they ask.
    • A fantasy theme needs landscape papers and scenery elements.
