Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder…#6

Hello Everyone!

I used the September kit in my Project LIfe layout.

Welcome to my new blog series, “Confessions of a Scrapbook Kit Hoarder“. If you haven’t already, please read The Intervention so you can understand the inspiration for this craft project.

I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a really sweet one with family. My father-in-law’s birthday was this weekend and we hung out, watched football and played board games. Lots of fun memories.  I squeezed in a little crafting on Saturday but I always remind myself that family time comes first so in the end I had to put my supplies down and play with my boys.

I used letter stickers from an old kit for the title.  I used the 3×4 and 4×6 cards from the kit for my journaling.  I also added the logos from Panera and Barnes & Noble from a print out to ad more information about the locations for a few pictures.  I added an extra page protector sheet that is 6 x12 with two 6×6 pockets in between the two pages for this week’s layout for added photos and journaling.

I love sticking in an unexpected element like an additional page protector. The variety in sizes keeps the scrapbook interesting.

I moved the insert over so you can see the full right side of the layout. I again used cards from the kit. I also used two wooden elements from my stash -the camera and the arrow. I painted them with my Jenni Bowlin paint so they would pop.

I also was thrilled to use some leaves I had bought at Michael’s dollar bin and Joann’s a long time ago as an embellishment on this layout.

I used dollar bin accents and Jillibean Soup sticker to make fun accent.

So you see, I can use up my stash. I didn’t need to buy a thing. I have a few more things to complete and then I will reveal the October kit (Sorry April, not yet!).

Have a blessed day!

  1. That’s okay – I can wait. I love that you journal in your scrapbook. I need to do that more. And I am a big fan of those extra little odd shaped page protectors, too. Great pages. I am patiently waiting for that October kit to be revealed. 😉 April
