Kits Craze!!

I have been dreaming up a plan for my Etsy shop.  I absolutely love scrapbook kits!  I love making them, I love purchasing them, I love watching videos on them...I love everything about them.  There's just something so thrilling about designing a kit out of gorgeous paper and knowing someone will create something adorable out of it.....

I have had this plan in the works for quite a while now.  I have been purchasing elements for my kits slowly and have ended up with huge amounts of merchandise.  What I do is this:  I take a paper pad/collection and I build around it.  So, normally a paper pad comes with 2 of each design, so I can make 2 kits out each pad of 12x12 paper.  I have made some absolutely gorgeous kits, just jam packed with beautiful items.  Paper, buttons, charms, stickers, flowers, lace, ribbon, Tim Holtz metal embellies, brads, envelopes, pockets, album bases, and much, much more!!  I think I made over 80 kits and let me tell took me over a month to complete!  It was a hard, but wonderfully enjoyable job.  Now, I just need to finish listing them in my Etsy shop.  I have a few in there and a few videos up on YouTube, but I can't wait until they are all listed and ready to sell, sell, sell!!  Here's a couple pictures of how my kitchen looked for that long month.  My husband was very understanding as you can imagine. :)
