I've been meaning to make up a few kits from older papers and supplies I have had for quite a while, and this was just the inspiration I needed. Of course, I LOVE buying new goodies, but I also want to make sure I'm using what I have too!
For my 'old kit collection' I pulled out some old Pink Paislee papers from the Sweetness Collection which includes a sticker sheet and alpha stickers.
Then, I added in a really old CTMH collection because I liked the B sides and felt they would match well with the colours in the Pink Paislee collection.
And, lastly, I grabbed some October Afternoon ephemera, some Maggie Holmes diecuts and Glitz paper layers. I felt like the papers, stickers and diecuts I gathered together gave me enough to pull from and liked the way they coordinated together.
So.... Here's my first page using my kit! I wanted to keep working on my youngest daughter Erica's baby book so these are the photos I'm going to focus on using this month. I love this background paper and didn't want to cover it all up, so I just chose to add some layers and leave the pretty background edges showing.
I used a waterbrush and Distress Ink to create a brushed lettering title for my page. Then, I took a black pen and highlighted areas of the letters to make it stand out a little more.
I wrote my journaling right on the page. I realized I forgot to erase my pencil lines for this photo... oops!
Thanks so much for joining me today! I'll definitely be creating more pages with this kit, and I feel like I'll be pulling more kits together to use up a lot more of my stash!
