We love using Mosaic Moments® Page Kits all year long, but they are especially useful during the holidays. Here are some reasons why we use holiday page kits, and some ideas for you as well.
Note: Most of the page kits shown in this article are no longer available, but these tips still apply to all kits.
#1 - They Save Us Time
#2 - You can use them to create an album to give as a Gift
#3 - Create Wall Art
#4 - They make great gifts all on their own
#5 - They Save Us Money
#6 - We Can Try Out New Styles
Perhaps we normally scrapbook with whimsical styles, but we have a few special photos that we would like try on a more traditional layout. If we buy a page kit, we in that style, we can make a special page without buying a lot of extra supplies.
In the layout above, Paije decided to try a kit using non-traditional Christmas colors. The bright green and pink gave her holiday photos a whole different feel! Take a look at our Page Kit collection and see if there are any new styles you would like to try.
#7 - They Come with Extra Parts
Page kits are laser cut and the extra pieces leftover after the shapes are cut are included in the package. Depending on the kit, there is usually enough extra paper to cut out a title or add additional elements to the layout.
In the Page Kit shown above, there is a section of the pattern paper you can cut with decorative dies or into corner tiles. Plus the card-stock has portions that are not part of a laser cut - so this extra paper can also be used to embellish your layout.
#8 - They are easy to grab and go
If you are getting together with friends or want to take something to do while on vacation, they are ideal. Just grab your Basic Bundle Dies and/or your Mosaic Moments® Cutting Mat, your pictures and adhesive, along with the kit and you are ready to go.
P.S. Don't forget your favorite treat too 🙂
#9 - You can make them your own
Original Page Kit
Changes: Right Layout rotated & Numbers 2x2 added on the Left
Because the elements are not attached, you can easily modify them to suit your wishes. Often, you can turn a layout sideways, flip the paper over to reveal another pattern, cut a photo mat into a frame, add additional die cuts, stamps or stickers, or even change the sizes of some of the photo mats. It’s all up to you.
In the layout above, Paije wanted to make room for a horizontal photo - so she rotated the right layout. There was also a perfect space to place her Christmas tree photo. On the left layout she filled four of the little squares with the 2x2 Number dies.
