S&S Saturday March 1


Happy March to you – only 19 more days till it’s officially Spring (and my hubby’s birthday)! I’m here today with a peek at my HUGE Scraps & Stash kit for the new month. Watch the video to see the kit, piece by piece.

March Inspiration

March’s kit inspiration is this moodboard from Studio Calico’s January kit. I was inspired by the brown & white of the deer, the navy and white color combo with brush script (I’ll probably paint my own), the floral print of the tiny dress, the wood grain and air mail motifs, and so much more.

March Scraps & Stash Kit

The kit I’ve pulled is made up primarily of items from Crate Paper’s Portrait and Storyteller lines, with embellishments from Echo Park, Studio Calico, and Jenni Bowlin.

I’ll be back next Saturday with my first projects using this kit. I hope you’ll play along. If you make a kit of your own, I’d love to see it – link me up in the comments.
