Hello, How are you this week? Hope you feel a scrappy mojo burst of energy! Lately, I have been learning tips I've picked up from Shimelle's class, "The Scrapbook Process", class has allowed me more freedom to get busy into the scrapping and less into the decision process. By the way I encourage you to check out her online classes. If your like me, you can easily get distracted by a number of things. My brain will easily side track by the pretty things, things I need to clean or organize or cool techniques I want to try. However, the way she explained putting it all together was actually very helpful.
Here is the sketch shown on Shimelle's blog. Here!
Here is my interpretation of the blog sketch. When I came across my pre-made kit I put together a while back. I was so thrilled to discover I had the perfect vintage style birthday papers Cartabella- "Its a Celebration" for actual vintage photos of me and during that era of the 60's. Don't you love it when papers come together so well with what you planned? (pg. created for my Childhood album).
If your like me you grab this or that, then decide not to use it. Before long you have to climb out of your scrapping area.. Or is that just me? lol. Shimelles class showed me techniques for getting the most out of my precious allotted scrapbook times. For years, I have been putting kits together with old and new items, but never utilized them before now. Having a plan really does help! I'm Not a planner by all means. So having something to follow makes a HUGE difference and helps to get you going on a page. Limiting yourself to using mostly whats in the kit might help keep you from getting buried alive at your scrapbook table.. I hope you can spend a few extra minutes to get to know this technique of kitting, (is that a word)? Pairing your supplies, both old/new, along with sketches really helps me get out of my rut, use more of what I have and feel good about it again. I hope you will try this. Bring on your old and new products and mix it up.. Lets see what you can do!!!
