For the love of homemade kits: New kit share Round Two

Aloha Scrappers!! I am super excited to share this new recipe and kit with you today!! I can’t believe we just finished our first round of this series and now going to start another round, round two!!

This Round I really tried to simplify my kit more. Also Megan and I decided to add another layout to our line up. After me really being able to get so much out of my first kit, we figured it would be more challenging for us to try to make 4 layouts with this kit.

Also this round we have another Youtube joining in on the fun, My friend Felicia Young is joining in. She will be sharing her kit this week as well. Then next week she will be posting her layouts on her Youtube channel. Be sure to check out the links and see what both Felicia and Megan make and come up with. Also if you want to join us, be sure to share, with us your homemade kits!! We really want to inspire you to use your stash up and create layouts you love!!

Here is the recipe we used this time, we did change it up a little,

Inspiration paper: Maggie Holmes Shine Memento

I love this idea of starting off a kit with an Inspiration Piece, this really should be no surprise, since I have put together a whole youtube channel that uses inspiration pieces to start with. (though that is neither here no there..) An inspiration piece really helps to be able to tie things together some how. no matter how you use to interpret that piece.

We are using the same recipe for papers this round, which are,

  • a geometric paper
  • texture pattern (ie. woodgrain, fabric, brick, etc)
  • Stripe
  • Freebie pattern of our choice
  • 6×6 piece paper

These are the papers I choose this round:

  • Pink Paislee C’est La Vie 01
  • Dear Lizzy Documentary Fancy Free
  • Maggie Holmes Bloom Lizzy
  • Shimelle Starshine Hubble
  • 6×6 Maggie Holmes Confetti Page (streamer Circles)
  • Piece of Pink Paislee Memorandum Memo

Here is a look at my Papers


I really wanted to keep my papers fairly simple because the inspiration paper is bold and has tons of colors.

For the embellishment part of the recipe:

  • cut file
  • chipboard
  • stamp set
  • washi tape
  • tags
  • Sticker sheet
  • die cuts/ embellishment pack
  • enamel dots
  • free embellishment
  • 2 Alphas (Thickers, etc)


Let’s take a look at what I put in my kit:


For my alpha’s I picked Amy Tangerine Foam Thickers Thick and Thin in white and Pink Fresh Studio Happy Things Foam Phrase Words


I chose 2 sticker sheets, Maggie Holmes Bloom stickers(black, gold and clear) and Shimelle Starshine clear sticker sheet.


I chose Fancy Pants Happy Place Tags pack and some Crate Paper Wonder Acetate tags.


I am am bad about following rules (have I mentioned that..LOL) I have three freebie embellishments. I really want to use these so I don’t really feel bad about adding some extra’s in my kit. I have a pack of Maggie Holmes Bloom Hearts, Pink Fresh Studio Happy Things wood veneer, and Color Cast Designs acrylic stars.


For Dies cuts, I added Simple Stories I am die cuts as well as mixing in some digital die cuts that I bought from Claudia Van Rooijan’s Amy Collection at her Esty shop. (That collection was designed be Claudia herself)

My Stamp Set is one I recently bought from an online store Sakuralala, which was designed by Amy Tan. This stamp was just released when Amy came to Hawaii in April.

For my Chip board I picked Maggie Holmes Shine chipboard. (I actually had to sheets of this chip board so I really want to try to get most of that used up!!)

I have two rolls of wash tape, a pink glitter tape and a grey swiss dot wash tape.

I have enamel dots by Dear Lizzy ( believe they are from the Daydreamer collection) and one other pack from Allison Kreft #Happy.


I can’t wait to share with you the layouts I am making from this kit!! I am excited to use this kit. It’s so colorful!!
