How to make your own scrapbook kit

Today I have a little secret to share with you. It’s something I’ve been doing for a while and it’s saved me a ton of money because I no longer subscribe to any kit clubs. It’s also saved me a ton of time because when I have time to make something I can just sit down and create instead of spending the time looking through my supplies for just the right thing. And I have a lot of supplies, so that takes a considerable amount of time :)

So here’s the deal! Make your own scrapbook kit (or card kit if you are a cardmaker) ahead of time from your own stash. I made a video to show you all of the details. I’m really not great at videos, so forgive the poor video making skills and instead enjoy the good content. After you’ve watched the video, come back here and get the free printable I mentioned in the video. It’s a checklist/recipe you can follow to make your own kit!

And stay tuned for something really cool! It’s like taking this concept to the next level and I’m excited to share it with you.

    How many layouts would you expect to make from one of your kits and do you make it with specific photos in mind?

      Jean-The kits I make are generally pretty generic so they can apply to lots of different photos and themes. I think the amount of layouts you can make from one kit really depends on your scrapbooking style. If you like lots of layers, obviously you’ll burn through the kit faster. I generally make about 4 pages with a kit. After 4 kits I’m usually tired of the supplies in the kit and I’ll put any remaining supplies back in with the rest of my supplies, like buttons back with the buttons etc. Thanks for stopping by! Good luck with this-I think you’ll really like it!

  1. […] This first card uses the files as is. If you’d like, cut more mini leaves and sprinkle them on the card like confetti. These adorable papers are older papers from October Afternoon. I’m on a mission to use up my stash so I always try and pull older papers first and make a little kit to work with. You can learn more about how I make my own kits here in this video. […]
