I started out my adult crafting life as a scrapbooker. I have made no less than 40 scrapbooks in the last 20 years! I don’t ordinarily like scrapbook kits and I usually don’t buy them. I like to cut, punch and create paper art. I decided to try the two scrapbooking kits in the Spring Mini Catalog just to see what they were like. I had never tried a Stampin’ Up! Simply Scrappin’ Kit before.
The For the Record Simply Scrappin’ Kit (#126900) came with two 12 x 12″ soft suede card stock sheets and two pages of designer stickers that included banners, jounaling boxes and alphabet stickers. The kit also had a variety of designer printed paper in a variety of sizes. I created the two pages in less than 10 minutes. I didn’t have to cut a thing. All I did was adhere the elements that I selected and I didn’t add anything extra.
I ended up with enough stickers and one designer mat size paper to complete a couple more pages. I will have to use some 12 x 12″ card stock from my own stash and I will add some background papers as well. I also like to have a stamped image or two on my pages.
I have to say that I was happy with the results and the speed that the kit allowed me to create two scrapbook pages! If you were starting with a 6 x 6″ album you really could get 8 pages from this kit. You might want to add a few of your own embellishments since it comes with one button, and you may want to add more of your own background papers for mats.
The theme of the kit is clearly a kid school theme, but if you have kids or grandchildren, you’re always snapping pictures of them! It’s so easy nowadays with the digital cameras and high quality printers and papers that we have.
I loved the Flower Fair Simply Scrappin’ Kit (#131103) so much that I actually ordered a second kit after using the first one! That one can be purchased as a bundle with a matching album. I made and posted several pages that I created with that last month. Click here and here to see those!
