Have you ever fallen in love with a subscription-based monthly scrapbooking kit? At least until you looked at the price, right? A kit club will easily run you $25/month + shipping. It’s crazy, isn’t it?
I love scrapbooking from kits, but I hate paying for them. That’s especially when I realized that there was almost always at least one thing I didn’t like and wouldn’t use. How could I justify spending that much money for something I wouldn’t use the entirety of. Instead, I decided to make my own scrapbooking kits.
Here’s my no-fail formula for creating scrapbooking kits so that you can make a few too.
- Two coordinating colors – for my kits, I used yellow and gray, pink and teal, and mint and navy. Choose color combinations you love, so you’ll be excited to use the kits you make.
- 12 sheets of patterned paper. For each kit, I chose six sheets in a combination of the two coordinating colors and six sheets that were more neutral. You might also want to include solid cardstock in your kit.
- One package of large alphas and one package of small alphas. I chose one pack of Thickers and one pack of a smaller letter sticker for each of my kits.
- 3 pieces of coordinating ribbon and/or trim – I cut a few pieces to 12 inches each to include in my kits. I just chose from whatever I already had.
- One package of coordinating embellishments – I chose enamel dots for these particular kits, but you could definitely choose whatever embellishments make sense for you and your style.
- A handful of small things that coordinate – You could choose anything from die cuts to buttons. You can see there’s a nice variety of small things in each of my kits.
That’s it, y’all! That was easy, wasn’t it? I tend to do things like this assembly-line-style, so I put all three of these kits together at the same time, which meant only getting things out and putting them away once.
I use 13×15 Clear Plastic Storage Bags* to store the kits I make and they’re organized standing up with the rest of my kits & collections in large baskets.
