I affectionately call my front room "Kit Central". It's a formal living room and dining room right off my scrap room, right where everyone walks into my house. It is usually a huge mess with lots of kits going at one time--little plastic bins filled with embellies, stacks of paper, baskets filled with the pieces I plan to us to create a future class, and so on.
When I host a crop, this is where we crop so I have to move everything out. Since I am hosting a crop on March 19th, I need to get everything kitted up and out of the way.
I figured I'd just share a little bit about what "kitting" looks like for those of you who wonder how I put together a kit for a class. These kits are for the "Singing In The Rain" class I am teaching for Prima.
I have a huge dining room table and this is what it looks like:
I lay out one cup for each kit and all the embellies for each kit are passed out into each cup. After all the embellies are in each cup, I put them in a little bag to go inside the big kit bag.
If there are diecuts in the kit, I cut them and lay them out. Sometimes I put them in the cup with the embellies but the cups I used this time were to small.
While I was watching RHWOC I paperclipped all the pages of the book together in stacks, in order of the pages in the book. To kit, I just pull each page from the stack and place it in the bag in the order it goes in the book.
At the same time I placed the Chipboard stickers and Alpha Stickers in the kit bags too. I still have to add ribbons, bag the embellies and add those, add the diecuts...there is alot of work to do yet!
If something is missing I put a sticky note inside the front of the bag so I will see it and put the missing item in before the kit is given out.
So there you have it, a little sneak peek into what I do to make sure everything is in your kit an ready for you the day of the class or when you buy and etsy kit.
