New PLer here (almost) and was curious all of you who make your own kits, do you use the same color scheme throughout the album or do you change it up based on seasons/holidays or from week to week?

I hope this makes sense.

I mix it up. Sometime there is a color that shows up a lot in the pics & I go off of that color.

I like to mix it up....I pick a different collection to work with each week. Good way to help Stashbust!!


It was fate that I would enjoy paper crafts...my name is Sharmon (like the TP)!

Deffinately mix it up! I get bored if I do the same thing for too long and I am enjoying pulling out all my leftover scraps and using them in the smaller format. I don't really like themed scrapbooking pages so I don't plan on having too many themed PL pages either

I stay consistent within the week, but mix it up outside of that.

Mix it up. Use BH kits, SC PL kits, and my stash. I am loving the mix up and it make my PL look so good!

I started this year also and figure I would maintain an theme throughout the album. Well that has not happened and it is just January. I kinda do my own thing each week! I like it though, so it will be Ok no matter what!

When I work on a page form my granddaughters, I usually keep a theme on those pages...

Another vote for mixing it up however you wish! I started with little prep time and no kit. Hello Simple Stories Oh Snap Paper line is working great and I am placing another order for more of the same line...I am also adding in other products as long as they coordinate color wise. I do try to maintain one main color theme when it pertains to using their cardstock base colors and match those as closely to pics but I do want some consistency on facing pages throughout the album hence another order 2peas. I am liking all kinds of variations though. You cannot do PL wrong,

Do whatever you like. I just got the Seafoam kit, but have to have the new Jade kit coming out in May. I will use both. I also mix in items from my on stash. I like that they are a little different. The color family tends to stay the same, but I will absolutely mix it up on holidays with holiday colors. It's whatever you want to do. Have fun.

My biggest advice, you've probably already heard, keep a journal. I tend to get my layouts done all at once when I have free time. My calendar journal is a lifesaver for reminding me what we did during the week. It takes a second every night to write it down, but so worth it. Enjoy!

The 1st year I did it I used a BH core kit and so it was unified throughout - but I was bored with it.

This year I am using the SC PL kit and my stash and loving the electric look so far

I change it up! I use bits and pieces from every collection I like! It all coordinates in the end! I love doing PL pages there so much easier then a LO!

I have been mixing it up this year. I think it looks cute and it is a great way to use up bits and pieces in my stash.

I mix it up from week to week and don't follow any particular theme or color palette. That would be too boring for me!

Change it up. I think a whole year of the same thing is boring and I would lose interest in doing it
