Homemade Kits

The internet is brimming with opportunities to join some seriously awesome scrapbooking kit clubs. But, if you're like me, your own shelves are brimming with opportunities to start your own personal kit club.

Back in 2013, somewhere between participating at Counterfeit Kits and DT work with Memorable Seasons, I fell in love with shopping from my own stash and creating my own kits. After awhile, I developed a system that included pruning from 6 different places in my creative space. These places include paper, stamps, and different types of embellishments. I loaded up 12x12 craft envelopes and little zipper bags to contain all of my rediscovered goodies.

This summer, I joined Scrap Stash Kit Club on Facebook and found even more inspiration for creating kits. I'm using this space to share my August Surf's Up Kit inspired by Scrap Stash Kit Club.

You might have seen it a few times over the last month.

I made 3 layouts and 3 cards before I finally ran out of usable paper. I had about 3 full sheets of 12x12 left, but I'm confident that I'm done with these collections for layouts. So, I cut everything down to 6x6 and filed it along with my 6x6 pads for future cards.

Thanks for stopping by!

Of course I LOVE the puppy!!! I don't think I remember seeing the #lovethis. Awesome title btw. So many great details on that layout. Mi amigo is of course another super adorable layout. I would love to see more titles in Spanish since Chance is actually bilingual!!!! How cool is that anyway?! Love ya Sis!!
