Yup, I spent about an hour using my scraps to make these...
That's about 12 layout kits - each one totally unique. Each one designed to make one layout. It didn't take long. Maybe an hour. I organized the scraps in little coordinating clusters, added a sheet of background paper (usually watercolor paper) and that's it.
They look like this...
This Layout Kit is inspired by two scraps of this paper.
It's from an old Studio Calico kit. I loved this paper and just couldn't let these scraps go. So happy to put them on another page. I don't have any plans. Yet. But this little kit has the potential to make something like this...
Inspiring, right? Of course, it needs some mixed media magic, photo/s and some embellishments but it has potential. This is so much better than picking through a scrap bin, don't you think? All I have to do is pick a Layout Kit and a photo and go.
Here are some of the other Layout Kits I put together today.
Some Prima papers mixed in with some leftovers from a 6x6 paper pad by Maggie Holmes'.
And how about that Basic Grey hexagon paper from my all time favorite BG collection, Urban Prairie paper..? Do you recognize it? I've held onto that for a long time. The other scraps are from the first Vicki Boutin class I attended at The Paperie in maybe 2008..? Yikes! Talk about hoarding.
You can clearly see that the October Afternoon background paper is from 2010. Obviously not the oldest papers in my stash but it's clearly time to use it.
This last one has a couple of options. I can use either pile of scraps or I can combine them together. I liked how they both looked with the mint paper so I decided to leave my options open and see what happens.
These kits are designed to make a single layout but they also bash my stash and motivate my mojo. I'm taking them with me to The Paperie's Spring Retreat the weekend of April 23. I might use them first thing in the morning to get my mojo going or I might save them for the last day when I'm low on time but have some pics I just have to scrap before going home. I'll let you know how it works out when I get back from the Retreat.
Thanks for stopping by!
