Page kits are great because they allow you to scrapbook your photos faster; however, designing kits takes a lot of thought, preparation and time.
The next step was selecting the photos I would use on the page kit designs. The obvious approach would be to create all of the kit pages about one of my children, however, that wouldn’t show the versatility of the kit for both boy and girl pages. Then there is the choice of using modern pictures or heritage pictures. I decided to do a little of both. I created pages with baby photos of my two children, my husband, and myself. My first spread features each of our hospital baby photos.The first step and probably the most difficult – at least for me – was selecting the product. It was challenging to find a combination of products that would work for both boy and girl baby pages. I selected a mix of modern and retro-inspired products, in a variety of boy and girl friendly colors that would work with both present day and heritage photos.
The four other layouts focus on each of our first nicknames. There are two two-page layouts and two-single page layouts, so you’ve got lots of variety. The kit includes instructions for each layout, for a total of eight pages.
