I also made three pages with the pieces I was putting together as I was making those kits.
Why You Should Re-Kit Your Diminishing Scrapbook Collections
Here is why it’s a good idea to disassemble your purchased collections or kits after a while…
- Having already used many papers you liked from your collections, the papers you like less start to dominate the remaining ones that you do like. This makes you feel uninspired when you look through those collections.
- The papers you don’t love take up space, compete for your attention, and make you feel guilty.
Why Re-Kitting Will Rock Your Scrapbooking World
Here’s why it’s amazing to pick your favorite papers from among your collections and build your own homemade kits…
- You have inspiring and exciting coordinated supplies to work with RIGHT NOW!
- You realize you already own amazing supplies and you won’t desire new stuff nearly as much.
- You have a clear idea of how many pages you can make before you’ll need to shop for more stuff.
- If you do want to buy a few new things, you can prioritize what you purchase by looking at what your kits could benefit from.
- Your gorgeous new kits highlight how uninterested you are in the remaining papers that didn’t make the cut. You realize that you truly do not need those other supplies, and that they are limiting your inspiration.
I’ve been waiting since early January for a few new collections to come available in the stores. I ordered a couple of those collections right before starting my kit project. And now I’m not even interested in opening those new collections because I just want to scrapbook with these beautiful, personalized kits!
