How to Create a Kit from your Stash! // #6 Organization

April 23, 2016

Hello everyone! Welcome back! This is the last installment in the How to Create a Kit from your Stash series. It's a sad day, but don't worry! I have so many fun layouts to share with you all including some process videos using this kit. Eventually, I will film a Kill a Kit video once I've used up the rest of my kit. I hope you all enjoy my explanation on how you can store your kit!

As in all of my other posts, I will go into more detail below on how I decided to store my homemade kit. First, I would like to address that I love all of my readers and subscribers so much! Thanks to everyone who has commented, watched, liked, and subscribed! There will be a giveaway coming for you all soon. I love sharing my creations and ideas with you all and I hope you are all at least a little bit inspired. If you want any specific videos be sure to let me know! Now, onto the organizing!

1.) Organizing the smaller bits

All kits seem to have a lot of smaller bits. This includes wood veneers, die cuts, brads, gems, and more. To corral all of these fun pieces I decided to pick up a Iris photo box. These are relatively cheap (especially if you use a coupon). You can find them at Michael's and online (and probably other places too). They are roughly $3.00 without a coupon so not to expensive. Now depending on the size of your kit, you may want one or two. Totally up to you, no pressure! If you don't want to have to buy more organization tubs you could always use some plastic bags or some clear page protectors so everything doesn't get jumbled. 

2.) Where to put the papers

In the video, I show you how I use a drawer that locks and could become a tote to take on the go. There are Iris and other brand containers very similar to this that can hold your 12x12 paper as well. If you aren't looking to invest money into storage then maybe a small pizza box (unused) would suffice or a page protector, or a shallow drawer. The drawer set that I have is made by Jessware (purchased from Joann's). 

3.) Stickers and Rub-ons

My stickers and rub-ons live in the same container as my papers, but they would also fit nicely in a 8 1/2" by 11" page protector. I'm sure there are other options as well. 

4.) Mixed Media

Most of my mixed media pieces do not fit into my kit container (since I store multiple kits in one container). I am able to fit my two paints and my stencils. I decided that my palate knives, gesso, and Heidi Shine do not need to live in the kit because I do use them in other instances. If you want to keep everything together you may want to look into investing into getting one of those larger Cropper Hopper containers that I have seen.

Overall, there are tons of ways to store all of your goodies for your kits. Check Pinterest for ideas and ask in the Facebook groups. We're all here to help you! I hope you all enjoyed this series! Please show me some of your kits so I can get inspired by all of you!! Process videos using the kit will be coming so stay tuned! Thanks for stopping by!
