    Default Holiday kit shopping

    For those kits that you are not on a ct for.. do you wait to purchase them until after that Holiday is past or buy them before, as most are posted before, and if so then do you take pictures to go with the kits?

    I always tend to wait until after the Holiday and then want to purchase a kit to go with the photos that I have taken.

    my ct layouts that I do I end up trying to go through the last year holiday and wishing I had new ones to scrap with

    Me too! I like a sale! I do purchase specific kits to go with my pics but I also create pics to go with my kits...especially CT kits. I just signed up to bake cupcakes for my daughters gymnastics fundraiser because one of my designers is working on a baking kit! I also encouraged my kids to make a gingerbread house for Susan Godfrey's Homemade Holiday (not that they minded)!

    Definitely depends, I do a little of both. I'm about 2 years behind in my scrapping (and feel like I'm never going to get caught up!) So with my CT stuff I have 2 years of Christmas photos to pull out to scrap. But I do tend to sway towards taking new ones if the kit is really cute and I don't have anything to go w/ them (in the 2 years to go through!) But usually I find something in my old stash to go with it.

    I usually only buy kits that I know I have photos for! Or stuff i'm going to scrap RIGHT NOW ;)

    I usually wait for a sale, too! I usually add a kit to my wish list and make sure I already have pictures to scrap with it, or brain storm ways to take new pictures that will work for a certain kit! I take tons of pictures and have years worth of pictures to scrap with so very rarely do I find a kit I love that I don't have anything to scrap with it.

    I am another sale shopper. I cannot pass up a good bright colored kit with lots of unique embellies.

    Only 2 years behind would be nice. I take way too many photos and my full time job and active kiddos really take away from my scrap time...ha ha. I am almost finished with 2008. I alternate scrapping new and older though to keep my mojo up.

    Love this.. I am glad to know that I am not the only one who does both!!! I have a few that I have gotten because I want to do a photo shoot to fit the kit! After Christmas I like to get a few for the unexpected awesome cute photos that I got lucky taking too

    I decide on which pics I want to scrap that month and then start looking for a kit. I wait for a sale though so the whole folder may get moved to the next month if my "wished for kit" hasn't gone on sale. That being said, I will often decide on which pics to scrap based on the challenges. The challenges keep me scrapping new pages in new ways so my whole album doesn't look the same. I'm weird I know!

    You don't need to get caught up...cuz that could be boring. I'm probably so far behind...I'm first LOL
    I just scrap'em as the spirit moves me. At present I'm on a mission to complete a book as a Christmas gift for older grandson [and his parents] of their vacation to NYC. I'm on a roll.
