Making my own Page Kits

I had mentioned in a previous post that I tried my hand at making my own page kits.
I wasn't sure what to expect from them.
I was hoping it would make the process of scrapbooking a bit quicker for me at a crop.

I was right!!!
I completed…COMPLETED 10 layouts in 2 days, with lots of visiting in between ;)
I am lucky if I complete 1 layout in 2 days, so this was a major accomplishment.

I grabbed some 12x12 bags for each kit.
Then what I first did, was pick out my photos and get them printed up.
I then picked out which pattern papers, I thought, would go good with my photos.
I needed some card stock, so matched that up with my pattern paper.
If I had matching chipboard pieces or stickers then I threw them in the bag as well.
If I had letter stickers that I wanted to use for a title, I added them.
That was it, that was the base of my kit.

Most of my embellishments and some journal tags are in portable container, so I brought those, but didn't put them in the kit.  I am new at this kit making, so I wanted to keep it simple as possible for me.

I did a quick video to my kit making process.
I am sure I will get better at this as I make more of them.
Honestly though, even though I made 10 layouts, I only worked from 2 of my kits…I killed those kits
mind you….double happiness ;)

I was lucky enough to get a call from the dentist's receptionist today, and was able to get in so they could do part of my root canal. I am happy to say that my tooth has a temporary filling…so I don't have a hole in the centre of my tooth anymore….its the little things in life ;)

I hope you all had a Creative Tuesday :)

  1. So organized!! I say I am going to try and do that when I go to a crop and it never gets done.

  2. Your kit assembly is the same process as mine, Tracy! :) Glad you were able to get into the dentist!

  3. Great idea! How nice to get done. I love the organization :)

  4. Luna is such a sweetie :) and I love the new watch, what I could see of it any way ;) so I love that the page kits worked so well for you and that you were able to get so many layouts from one kit!! When I went to crops I would just throw one piece of card stock in a page protector with the patterned papers I was using and then take various embellishments. So similar to you, but different ;)

  5. Glad you are a page kit convert. Kudos on getting so many layouts done.

  6. Fabulous that you were able to achieve so many layouts! Great kit ideas! TFS


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
