Hi everyone! This is Linda and I’m thrilled to be here today to share with you my project planning for the Labels Quarterly Scrapbook Kit. For a kit like this, that doesn’t have a specific story prompt (like a story kit), I will keep in mind photos + stories from the past couple of months as my jumping off point for most of my projects and then use the kit itself to spark designs.
In the video, I walk through my process for planning out nine projects using this kit, as well as talk through a lot of other ideas.
My first step is always to look through the kit in its entirety. As I get to each item, I think about a few things:
- Is this something I want to add into my stash because it’s a great basic or do I want to use it in a specific project?
- For embellishments, is this something I want to try to use all on one project, or should I use these a little at a time as additional embellishments?
- Does this include a story prompt that I want to use as a jumping off point for a story?
- For papers, is this something I want to cut up or keep whole?
- Does this product lend itself to project life?
Next, I go through the products again and begin lumping together the products I want to use in a specific project and sketching out the project ideas. I also make note of the album I will add it into, the specific story, any specific photos I want to include, and which products I want to use.
I came up with nine different projects to create using this kit, including two project life spreads.
After planning out my projects, I pile the products back in my storage box, keeping the products that go together stacked together. When I’m ready to work on a project, everything is nicely contained in that one box so it will be easy to pull it out and work on my projects.
And that’s it! I’m ready to dive into the kit and start making. Thank you so much for joining me to plan out projects using the Labels Quarterly Scrapbook Kit!
If you’re interested in more details on my planning process, I have an entire class on project planning (and so much more) it that is still for sale called Plan, Prep & Play. I also often share my projects & bits of my process over on my instagram and on my YouTube.
