An Abundance of Kits

I have a lot of scrapbooking kits.
I had never used a kit in my scrapbooking, until a couple of years ago.
I was at the Crop & Create event and they not only gave out a great goody bag with a kit, but they also sold some there.
I purchased a few and completed one, lol.
I enjoyed the one I did, my friend Debbie and I did them together.

I went to the Crop & Create event again last year and purchased all the kits that I could get my hands on.
I really wasn't sure if I would like doing a kit, as I like to pick out papers and embellishments…..even if it took me forever, lol.
These kits give you all of the cutting measurements and I thought that it might take the fun out of scrapbooking….but I was wrong.
It is actually freeing.
If I wanted to, I could just use the papers and do what I want, or I can follow their instructions…I do both.

Here is a video I did before I went away for the May long weekend about my kits and how I use them.
I am planning on doing a more detailed video on how I use these kits to make them stretch for my benefit :)
If you would like to see the full video (as my blog seems to cut off the right hand side of them) click on my link "Tracy's Treasures24"

I hope you all had a very Creative Day :)

  1. very very cool. Lots of pretty stuff. You will get lots of two pagers from that supply:)

  2. I saved the video and hope to watch it soon. I really enjoy using a kit once in a while. It's fun to have someone else do some of the work. :o)

  3. Watched the video earlier and it was good information. I have only used the kits from the $$ store but not for making pages just used the paper. It's nice to have everything coordinate.

  4. liebe tracy, du hast solch herrliche papierschätze, ich wünsche dir viel freude beim verarbeiten...
    liebe grüsse

    1. Here is Ruth's comment translated :

  5. Glad you enjoy using kits. Not so much for me, unless I put it together myself. Hopefully it will speed up the process of completing layouts!

  6. Great video and loads off fabulous ideas and papers! TFS

  7. I always look at the kits when Hobby Lobby puts them on sale, but I've never purchased one. I also haven't scrapbooked in forever...a kit might be what I need to get back to it!! Have a great day :)

  8. I had to laugh at your video. I practice my own scrapping rationalization skills from time to time too.

  9. So I thought that bag looked so small then I watched the video! Lol,it's huge! 13 kits! But you completed 8 layouts? And a mini album? Awesome!


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