If you are like me, then you probably have a few scrapbook paper pads in your scrappy stash. I love using paper pads but have found that in the midst of my other supplies, they are rarely used. I firmly believe that ALL of my craft supplies are meant to be consumed…paper pads are no exception!
Last week, I hosted a live session on the Victoria Marie Facebook Group where I deconstructed an entire paper pad (Memorandum by Pink Paislee) with the goal of making scrapbook kits.
My process is simple:
1) I removed ALL of the papers from the pad. Yep, you read that right…I removed every single page from the paper pad!
2) Next, I separated the papers into groups that can be used to create scrapbooking kits. The Memorandum paper pack features a variety of pattern paper designs, pages with pocket cards and labels, and several with bold and muted patterns. Each grouping contains 3-5 papers in varying styles.
3) After coordinating the pattern paper groupings, I reached into my stash to select supplies for each kit – die cuts, stickers, stamps, textured embellishments, etc. Each kit has enough materials to make 2-3 scrapbook layouts. Of course, larger kits can be created by adding more paper and embellishments.
4) Each kit was then stored in a Memory Keeper paper holder.
Here are the 5 kits I created using the remaining papers from the Memorandum paper pack!
It feels so good to finally put my paper pads and older supplies to use! All of the kits I created contain products from different manufacturers. Of course, you can use products from scrapbook collections or pre-made kits as well.
Over the next few weeks, I will be using these kits to make several scrapbook projects and sharing this process during the weekly Victoria Marie Facebook Live session, hosted on Fridays at 2:00 pm CST!

Stay tuned for more paper pad kits to come! Thanks for stopping by!
