Hi there everyone!
I know that even though we all have a large stash of kits in our digital arsenals – I also know that we all like to use our kits several times for creating to maximize our crafting dollars. There are several ways that we can do this – which is one of the biggest benefits for digi scrapping. In fact, this was one of the primary reasons that I switched to digital scrapbooking back in 2014. I was a dedicated paper scrapper before then, but the ability to stretch my stash (in a non-space taking type way) was one of the most instant benefits of digital scrapping.
So let’s look at a few ways that we can stretch our stash and our digi kit dollars.
- Use Neutral colored kits to be able to document lots of everyday memories or even bigger stories. Use key elements of your photos or background to pick a primary color – then shop your stash to find a similar predominant color in the kit.
- Use flexible templates that can be combined and modified. These templates can be used for patterned papers, photos or even artsy treatments.
- Use “themed” kits off theme. Not every kit needs to be used for the theme that it was initially designed for. For example, I used this Christmas/Winter kit, A Season to Remember to document some travel photos from our trip to Spain.
I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use your kits again and extend your stash even further. Have fun documenting your memories! Luly G
