The Best Supplies for Scrapbooking (Q&A)

It’s Q&A month and I’m answering your biggest questions about life, business, and simple scrapbooking.

Q&A with Jennifer Wilson | The Best Supplies for Scrapbooking

What are you favorite go-to supplies for scrapbooking?

As I’ve answered these questions, I’ve reiterated to myself how much I try to reduce or control my decision-making. We left-brainers can get caught trying to find the perfect X, Y, or Z! So as a recovering perfectionist, it is an important coping mechanism to avoid analysis paralysis.

When it comes to scrapbooking supplies, this is why I subscribe to a kit club. I enjoy having someone else choose products for me, so I don’t overanalyze my cart down to more doilies and some white cardstock. (No joke!)

I like Studio Calico because the style of products fits me. However, you may like other kit clubs such as Cocoa Daisy or Gossamer Blue. It’s more a matter of what colors, patterns, textures, and types of embellishments you like. Kits are usually around $30-35 and contain everything you need to make several pages.

We believe simple is not how your page looks, but how your scrapbooking hobby works. We have a free workshop called SPARKED and it is the best way to learn more about Simple Scrapper and start creating consistently.

    Right now I’m pretty darned happy with my Project Life cards and my three kits: Studio Calico’s Project Life, Scraptastic – This Life Noted, and Lawn Fawn’s embellishment kit. I’ve got LOTS, I mean LOTS of scrapbooking supplies but find myself only doing traditional scrapbooking about twice a year on long weekends. Project Life is filling my creative outlet for memory keeping for now.

    I used to belong to several kit clubs and whittled down to just one – The Scrap Room. However now I’ve resolved to use up the stash I have (I still have some 2011 kits!) before I buy more!
