    I think a lot of people do this too but as long as you give credit where it's due I'm sure everyone will be happy!

    I am a shopaholic i have hundreds of kits , i am like a bee to the honey pot .
    I dont mix or match simply because i would never remember to credit the designers.I like to use the kit again if i like it

    it depends on the kit.
    For larger kits and what I am scrapbooking.
    For example if I have a lot of pictures from a party or vacation I like to use a kit that has lots of papers so I can make as many pages as needed from the same kit.
    If I am scrapbooking some "everyday" moments, I might use a smaller kit and only make one page from the kit. Although I do have some favorites that I will use again and again.

    I am a little bit of the same way...I picked 1 or 2. I have favorites but then sometimes if I see a kit I really like, I just have to have it. I have a few kits I have bought a little while ago and have not used them yet. I just unzipped them last weekend. And then my other problem is that I am very "routine" so if it is something I like, I will keep going back to that same thing so I have to force myself out of it.

    I usually make at least 2.......I am funny about "matching" or "facing" pages in my books. Once in a while if it is a themed book, and I really like the kit, I use parts of the same kit throughout, adding other things to add variety........but using the same background paper, colors etc.

    When I get a page kit, I try to do as many as I can out of that one kit. I don't always use them as much as I'd want because when there is a super good sale I'll buy more than one at a time.
    I also find it a challenge to see how many different looking pages can I make out of one kit.


  9. I find myself buying way to many kits and not using them. I tend to be a collector when i comes to my kits. I keep telling myself I will sit down with my kits and use them but I am to indecisive and keep buying what I like.

    I tend to buy kits to go with photos I have in mind, but finding the time to scrap all the memories is a tough one.
