Layout From Page Kit

When my friend Amy came to visit back in January, she brought me a page kit from Lickety Split Scrapbooks. The colors in the kit worked perfect with a photo I had from several years ago that allowed me to tell the story of hosting a book club here at our home.


The kit came with directions for completing the page, which I followed for the basic design then changed to suit my photo and story. I also added in a few other bits and pieces (some from my stash and some from additional gifts Amy brought with her), and I'm thrilled with the way this turned out. (Thanks Amy!!)

Do you follow the directions that come with page kits . . . or veer off in your own direction?

Wow, such a lot going on on this page - so many interesting details to look at. I am hopeless at following directions for scrapbooking. Just can't do it! Terminally rebellious.

I loe how you scalloped the grey and white polka dot paper. It makes a perfect border embellishment.

You did a great job with this kit. I don't think I've ever used a page kit, except in some classes at the CK Conventions. Even then I usually adapted them to my CAS style.

I've never used a page kit, but I can see why you choose this one to go with your photo. The colours play off each other beautifully

Fabulous layout and papers! I sometimes follow the basic design of the kit and add to it or sometimes just do it all on my own.

Page kits are fabulous when you need a jump start on inspiration. I recently finished up a couple pages from class kits and never followed the directions exactly, but they sure do get you started quickly. Your page turned out nice - love the vintage feel of those paper.

That's wonderful! It depends how I am feeling at the time and the colours/patterns on the paper. I'm 50/50 on following instructions :)
