Ok , I thought I had posted this before now but nope. Probably because I wrote it on the UYS blog and forgot to link it to this one!
Scrapbook kits are really popular right now and almost every company has some that you can purchase but what about all that stuff you already have and want to use up…old kits, a paper here or there, more embellishments than you know what to do with? I practically have my own store, so the last thing I need is a new kit!
So, I have been doing some research…I have recently found an amazing group of videos from nicmakin on Youtube…she just has these great walk throughs on how to put some kits together all from what you already have in your stash…big kits…enough to let you scrap a bunch of pages worry free, whether you are doing one of our challenges, going to a crop or just feel in the creative mood! It’s all about mixing and matching and being able to throw a bunch of stuff in a bag and be able to put together a bunch of pages with little or no fuss…
You can check out her videos here!
Another great source was brought to my attention from UYS DT member Tina!
Counterfeit Kit Challenge has some wonderful monthly challenges to put together your own kit and then to challenge you to use them! I love to support other challenge sites, especially if they work in tandem with ours at UYS and for just me in general! If I like it, I want to tell everyone I can about it! This couldn’t be more perfect!
I hope that these give you a jump off point to start your own kits, I know that they have me and I look forward to putting together a few for when we head out to our farm in May! I don’t want to take a lot of stuff but want to still be able to do up some pages so this is going to work perfectly!
I am also heading to join Jennifer Edwardson’s crop here in Calgary on April 30th. It is a Scrapbookin’ Adventures UYOP workshop (Use Your Own Product) and we are going to go hard and create 20 12×12 layouts during the course of the day, all made from our own kits. I am excited beyond belief! It is going to be so much fun and I hope to post my work when I am done!
