Scrapbooking - Kit #02 - Putting the kit together

 Hello fellow crafters. I really enjoyed putting my first kit together, see "Scrapbooking - Kit #01 - Putting the kit together", that after taking a months break from scrapbooking I'm back with this second kit.  I followed the principles outlined in my blog post "How to create your own scrapbooking kit".  However, with this kit I decided to limit my quantities and created many small kits to make up the overall Kit #02.  To help me with this, I looked at, and took into consideration, the Scraptastic Kit Club and Hip Kit Club kits.  In addition, I also included the Citrus Twist Kit Club, specifically their Pocket Page kit.

I plan to work on this kit for the  month of August, and even possibly September. I will post layouts as I complete them and I will be trying to do a process video with the majority of the layouts.

I broke my kit up into seven categories, that being:
  1. Main Kit
  2. Cardstock Add-on
  3. Pattern Paper Add-on
  4. Embellishment Add-on
  5. Stamp Add-on
  6. Colour Add-on
  7. Pocket Page Add-on
Here is a link to my YouTube video:

Main Kit

I included three different coloured cardstock, two of each colour.  I can't recall the companies, but I believe that it is a combination of Bazzill and Stampin' Up!.

The pattern paper consists of the following companies and paper collections:

  • BoBunny: Modern Miss, C'est La Vie and Smoochable
  • American Crafts: Best of, Amy Tangerine Cut and Paste and Sketchbook, Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm
  • Basic Grey: Serenade

Since I pre-cut all the cut sheets that I have in my collection, I could not include one complete 12" sheet.  Therefore, I went through my stash and pulled out several 4" x 6" cut outs.  These cut outs were from three different companies.
American Crafts - single sided
Ruby Rocket

The ephemera pack is Heidi Swapp's "Dreamy" collection. This collection includes acetate & cardstock pieces.
