A while ago I blogged a sneak peek of a layout I made for my friend Tara (if you are here from Tara’s blog welcome!! I hope we can be blog friends and you’ll come back again and again!). When she asked me to play around with one of her kits I could not say no. 1-because my student budget along with my trip to India budget, does not allow for the purchase of any new scrapbooking supplies. And two, once I took a look at her kits I knew I’d love to play around with them.
I used the March kit from Up the Street Scrapbooking and it was fantastic . It was a lovely mix of Studio Calico’s Anthology and Cosmo Cricket. I of course gravitated to the modern vintage SC line, but the Cosmo supplies were fun too.
Here are some of the layouts I made with the kit. This was inspired by a layout by Jen. I haven’t made cards for literally years, but it was fun to play around with them again. I like that you can get a couple done in a short period of time – it makes me feel like I accomplished something without really thinking too hard. Which by the way is sometimes just what the Dr. orders for those inspirations slumps.
I have tons of this kit left. You will be seeing more layouts from this kit for a while . I have a few more already done that I will be sharing sometime in the near future. So keep checking back for those.
What have you been up to lately?
