Hello again, my scrappy friends, and happy May to you! Did you get to do a lot of scrapping on iNSD? Me? I was busy fielding orders for the iNSD Bundle (which I had a product in – more on that coming soon!). I did, however, hang out a bit on Facebook watching videos and challenges going on there. All in all, it was a good day, and now I’m totally inspired to create.
Speaking of which – let’s talk about May’s Scraps & Stash kit.
Once again, I’m using the color scheme from this month’s upcoming Monday Mojo prompt for inspiration. I fell in love with the summery hues in this one, although there is that troubling bit of purple that may throw me for a loop.
And here’s what I put together:
A couple weeks ago, I went to a scrapbooking garage sale at my local scrapbook store, and I picked up a packet of Crate Paper goodies (say THAT 10 times fast!). The colors go really well with the color scheme, so I decided to go with it. There are several repeat papers, so I will have to get creative how I use the different sides – maybe do several double-pagers, maybe even alter some things with paints and inks. Should be interesting!
The contents of the kit are as follows:
15 sheets of 12 x 12 patterned paper
1 sheet cut-apart cards
1 full 12 x 12 sheet of stickers
1 full 6 x 12 sheet of stickers
1 pack die-cut shapes
1 pack chipboard sticker shapes
2 everyday stamp sets
5 ink pads matching color scheme
Hopefully I’m beginning to learn the art of restraint. This kit isn’t as huge as some recent ones, which may mean I can realistically use most of it up. My idea is to use some heritage and childhood photos with these supplies, because that’s just the mood they evoke for me. There may be 2 or 3 double page spreads, and maybe 1 or 2 single pages, depending on how I’m able to stretch the supplies.
How about you? Are there supplies in your stash that fit with this color scheme? Or do you have another in mind that could jump-start your own kit assembly session? I’d love to see what you’ve got. Stop by our Facebook group to share photos of your kit and projects, or just to say hello and chat with some friendly scrappers.
Till next time,
