Today, I'd like to show you something else I'm passionate about - scrapping through my stash by creating my own monthly kits. I've been doing this for a year now, and I have seen so many benefits, not the least of which is that I've put a serious dent in my stash!
So, how does it work? Well, first, I find some some sort of inspiration to draw on as a basis for my kit. It could be a color scheme, a challenge, a mood board, or a scrapbooking collection. (See different variations on my blog). This month's inspiration came from a collection of October Afternoon goodies I snagged on Scrapbooksteals.com.
Here's what my January Scraps & Stash kit looks like (read all the details here):
Since creating my kit, I've been working with it all month, and over the course of three crafting sessions, here's what I've made:
Then moved onto a single page.
Then finished up with a greeting card made from scraps. (Why, oh WHY does Blogger turn my photos sideways?)
It was a busy week, but I squeezed in a little scrapping time to make this page about my son.
And managed to fit in a bit of creating this past weekend as well.
And I've still got quite a few items left to work with - two full sheets of cardstock, a few sheets of patterned paper, three of the 6x8 sheets, and lots of diecuts and journaling cards. I'm hoping to squeeze in a few more projects this weekend, and then I'll be ready for a new kit!
