Until the day before yesterday. I decided to kill those kits. Really, they had it coming, what with all that mocking. I created seven layouts from those kits in one sitting. Get ready for a photo overload...
These layouts were created with the first kit:
And these were with the second. I liked the second kit more...
You can see a full layout share in this video:
1. Not every single page needs to be a masterpiece. Sometimes it's fun to just let go, play with pretty papers, and not worry too much about the end result.
2. Pick products you love. If you try to make a kit out of all of the items that have been sitting in your stash because you don't love them, you are going to have a hard time with the kit.
3. The more you create, the easier it gets. I made all of these layouts in one sitting. I know that isn't feasible or even desirable to everyone, but the point I want to make is this: If you create consistently, you don't get stuck as often. The more layouts I made, the more I felt like I could make and the faster the process was.
A few weeks back, I asked my YouTube followers to let me know what they would like to see from me on my channel or in future classes. By far, the most popular reply was creating kits from your stash/mixing old product with new products. I thought for a minute that this would be a great topic for my first class because it was in high demand! But, I decided instead to make it a weekly series on my YouTube channel. I want this information to be available to all.
So, starting tomorrow, I'll be launching a new series called Stash Kits: Old Meets New. In the first video, I'll go into detail about how to put a kit together using older products mixed with newer items. Future videos will show either a process video or layout share. I hope you'll enjoy it!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
