Tonight is our unKIT Live! broadcast.   and we are really looking forward to it. 9:30pm EST.  

We are creating a 2 page Christmas layout using your scraps.  You will need two 12 by 12 pieces of paper for the base of your layout.   1 piece about 9 inches by 3 inches, and 5 to 7 smaller pieces that are at least 3 inches tall.  Your scraps should not be matchy, but coordinate for the best look.   If you have any doo dads laying around, have them ready.  I am using Maya Road velvet flowers, but anything to help us put some finishing touches on your creation would be great!  and don’t forget your adhesive!   We hope to see you there.

We are very proud to announce that this month’s unKIT, as picked by Noell Hyman of Paperclipping, will be used on  Paperclipping Live Tuesday, October 28.  On the show, we will assemble a mini book together with Noell’s guidance.   So if you want to participate, please order your unKIT now. 

Paperclipping Live is a live broadcast on uStream that airs with a live interactive chat at 9:30pm EST on Tuesdays.   Noell’s upbeat show is always inspiring while the viewers interject their lively chat for a night of fun and creativity.  You will love it.


From Scraps to Completed Layout

Bring your scraps, some alpha stickers (or stamps), and 2 neutral colored pieces of cardstock.  You will also need a one inch strip of a striped paper (or a strong geometrical pattern will do just fine).   Tonight on unKIT Live!~  we will be creating a 2 page layout using our scraps.   We will be talking about our continuing Think Pink Campaign and some upcoming unKIT changes.  So you won’t want to miss it.

Be there, or be square.

Tips for Efficient Scrapbooking

July 24, 2008 1 comment

Some people call it “budget,” I call it “efficient.”  Making the most out of your scrapbooking supplies.  Maximizing your crafting dollar.

At unKIT, we are all about more efficient use of our scrapbooking goodies. 

There are a couple of things that we do to help you out. 

We reintroduce items from previous unKITs.  For instance, our Bo Bunny green Double Dot chipboard alphas and shapes.  There are so many in this pack, you can easily use it for both months.

Only order the items you want.   You only get scrapbook supplies that you LOVE!

Use your stash.  If you already have something in your stash that is included in our unKIT collection, by all means use it.

Our unKITs are never sold out.  This is awesome because you can order 2 unKITs at a time saving shipping. 

You could also go in with a friend and combine your orders to save even more money on shipping.

We always include a use-your-scraps project in our classes.  This is always very popular.

At unKIT, we listen.  We have heard on the message boards.  Money is tight.  (I hear ya!)  We will do our best to help you get the most out of your supplies, while not sacrificing your creativity.

If you have any suggestions, feedback or just want to say “hi”   please e-mail us at  We would love to hear from you.

Happy Creating.   Yours truly, unKIT
