Sketch N Scrap
is turning one this month and they are celebrating with fun and prizes all month long. Their first challenge was to make your own scrapbook kit. I have also joined in My Scraps and More's
Slash Your Stash challenge this month and thought I might as well combine the two!
For May I have decided to use up the papers I have left from the Lime Twist collection from My Mind's Eye.
Since the "recipe"
for the kit at Sketch N Scrap is to use 8 patterned papers, and I only had a few of the Lime Twist papers, I added in a few papers from some other My Mind's Eye collections. The recipe also called for 5 pieces of cardstock, 2 alphabets, 4-10 flowers - can be punched, handmade, store bought etc., 2-3 sets of stickers (not letter), Bling- pearls, rhinestones, stickles, glitter, sequins etc. , and 3 misc. embellies- i.e. doilies, journaling cards, chipboard, washi tape etc.
I also decided to make up a second kit using Echo Park's Note To Self collection. This is the collection that I had picked for April's Slash Your Stash challenge and I never got around to making anything with it. I haven't added in any flowers for this one, because I plan on making my own for this kit.
Now I have 2 scrapbook kits all made up and ready to go. I have been going through pictures and already have a few layouts in mind. It will be so great to use up some of my older product and to have a few new layouts to share!
