365 Days Kit

Well, I fell in love with the kit-of-the-month from CK magazine and couldn't wait to order it... but when I tried it was out of stock... and I tried first thing Jan. 1st. They haven't said if they're going to do more or even take pre-orders for more...

So it got me to thinking... My friend Jen @ jencropable.com did a 'Custom Fit' on her blog back in November... and I thought??? Why not make my own. Sure the kit would be easier... and I wouldn't have to make my own protective sheets... but then I thought... if you're anything like me... I already have a ton of scrapbook stuff... so why not do what Jen suggested, and do my own custom fit??? In the long run, I'll use what I have which will save me money...

So, if you're like me and wanted the kit-of-the-month... but missed out, check out Jen's blog and make your own... just remember to make your rows 4" deep and on the last row the pocket width is 3" for each one ... I'll post a page once I have one done.

Thanks again Jen... and thank you CK for being out of stock... because now I can spend my scrapbook money on something else. Whoo hooo!!!

Yep, I missed out on getting the 365 Days Kit too. CK lines were jammed.
I also had the same idea... make my own. It saves on the budget and gets some of those "sitting around supplies" used up too! can't wait to see yours!
