3 More Layouts From The Kit/Collection

Inspired to work with the kit/collection I've had in my stash, I completed three more layouts before adding the remaining items to my stash. This first layout is my favorite of the three. I started with a paper from the kit but ended up adding a sheet of cardstock and several other patterned papers from my scraps as well.

Once again I added a little stamping in the corners to finish the layout.

For the next layout, I had a good bit of journaling, so I printed it directly on to one of the patterned papers to start. I used a couple of pieces of memorabilia (the wrist band and postcard) and added some washi tape from my stash.

I used four sheets of the patterned paper from the kit for this last layout, layering them in smaller and smaller squares.

There were only four full sheets of patterned paper left over after five layouts (see my other two layouts from this kit here and here), along with the three partially used letter sheets and a good bit of the embellishment punch-outs. I've incorporated these remaining items into my stash by color.

Do you typically have lots of items left over from a kit? Or do you use it until all the pieces are gone?

It depends on the kit I find - I like the layered squares of pp and that captivating smile would be hard to resist :)

Great layouts - seems like you've been very prolific lately so I guess you missed it while you were busy teaching??? I usually have lots of the little embellishment pieces leftover when I use a kit.

I love your layouts, but what has grabbed me the most is that darling little boy. I can just hear his little voice saying "Aunt Melissa...please?" I could never resist that! So, so cute.

I love all the layouts! Each one has something special in the creative design. I don't tend to use kits,

These are great pages, hard to believe they all came from the same kit! I will use a kit until I'm bored, then re-organize things back into my stash or the donate pile.

What a great set of layouts! Yes, I always have left-overs and I'm getting good at giving away the bits I'll probably never use before I put the others in my stash.
