I started by scrolling through some old class materials and printing sample layouts that I want to scraplift or use as a starting point. I then chose a photo (or set of photos) to go with the INSPIRATION and pulled a few papers from my stash to begin a page kit.
Next I add in some coordinating papers from my scrap file and some borders, ribbon or washi tape.
And finally I choose some alphas and a variety of embellishments to complete the kit.
The next step is to slide all these pieces into a page protector. I'm collecting my page kits in an extra 12x12 scrapbook album so they will be easy to transport to the crop.
However, I've discovered a problem with this system! As I'm putting these page kits together, looking at the INSPIRATION pieces, pulling photos, choosing supplies, visualizing my layout . . . I want to scrapbook it NOW! I have everything together and I'm inspired to create. So, after creating ten page kits, I acted on that INSPIRATION and created a layout with the eleventh kit.
Whew - Now I'm feeling much better and think I can put together a few more kits!
Do you create page kits? Is it hard for you to save all those pages to scrap later?
