Organization Scrapbook Kits

Guest Author - Michelle McVaney

Scrapbooking time comes at a premium! To get the most out of your found scrapbooking time I reccomend preparing scrapbook kits in advance.

Spend a little time preparing your scrapbook kits. Your time preplanning will be well worth the effort. When you actually sit down to scrap you will get so much more completed at each sitting! To prepare your kits you will need to pre-select background papers, stickers, diecuts and embellishments. Add your photos to your scrapbook kit and you now have a packet ready to be scrapped.

Sometimes I don't have time to actually put a whole kit together so I take advantage of my storage method of keeping all subjects it thier own pizza box. For example, I have all birthday papers, stickers and embellishments in one box labeled birthday. If I don't have kits prepared then I can just grab birthday photos and the birthday box and know that I have everything in that box to create some birthday layouts.

I have boxes for birthday, camping, christmas, easter/spring, summer, sports vacation, etc. The subjects that I do not have alot of supplies such as Nascar, I just keep in a hanging file folder. The folders are still easy to grab and take along with me.

I recommend 2 Gallon Zip lock bags to store your prepared scrapbook kits. The Crop In Style Paper Sticker Binder will also work well for organizing your prepared scrapbook kits.

I also enjoy using kits from designers and scrapbook stores. Everything is put together for you- directions, layout ideas, papers, embellishments, fibers, etc. All you have to do is add your own photos! You can find lots of different kit clubs online if thise seems like the avenue you would like to take. I would highly reccomend premade kits to any new scrapbookers.

I always keep a few of these kits on hand with photos so when I am heading out to a crop or to scrap with friends I just grab the scrapbook kits and go! I no longer feel the need to take my whole scrapbook room with me! I love this organization!

Start preparing some scrapbook kits or order some online. When a scrapbooking moment appears, you're ready to crop!
