For The Love Of Homemade Kits: Round 2 Kill a Kit

Aloha My Scrappy Friends!! I can’t believe we finished another round of this series!! Crazy right?! I am having so much fun making and using these kits.

Here is what I started off with.

Here is all the paper I have left over from my kit.

I could probably get another layout or two out of this paper. I still have tons of embellishments and stickers left. I barely used the sticker sheets, this time.  I would have liked to have used my stamps more too, I think if I make another layout later I will try to use the stamps a little more.

Here are all the layouts i got done with this kit.

I love that I was able to use pictures that I took while taking an online class. It’s cool to incorporate the things I am learning in the classes I am taking.

This layout is about a whale watch my friend and I took in Boston when we were in college. I liked the idea of adding some older photos and try to make them feel more modern by adding some some trendy prints on the layout.

This layout is my last of this kit. I used two cut files for this, one for the back ground and one for the font. Both are from The Cut Shoppe. I did add that background paper to my kit, because it was perfect for the story I wanted to tell. Star gazing and looking for the planet Mars a couple of weeks ago. I kept this layout really simple and let the cut file and pictures be star in this layout.

Like I mentioned up above, with the paper and embellishments left over I could have done another one or two layouts. (if only I was n’t preparing to move!) I am really thinking of keeping a few of these paper scraps, like that flower pattern and come up with something pretty.

I really think doing this series is really helping me see the things I have and that I really enjoy using and the things I have that I use just because I got them in kits, or because I thought I needed it. Like those little phrase stickers from the I am collection from Simple Stories or the clear stickers from the Starshine Collection by Shimelle. I really think that from now on I am going to be making better buying decisions.

I am super excited to get started using my new kit too. I am going to be doing another post on our new recipe and my picks for this new kit.
