Welcome to my 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.

Ok so my lesson I am learning is that I need to have better planning when it comes to challenging myself. My challenge for this blog series is to use my monthly kits creating various paper projects instead of hoarding it before the next kit arrives.  I realize now that I didn’t start this right when I received my September kit so I lost some time.  Which now will create that same lack of time for my October kit.  But I have decided that I am producing fun projects and normally I just look at the pretty supplies and store them in my containers. So I am making it happen.

I used a large portion of the supplies from the kit. I did not use everything but will keep them available for use with my October kit. One thing I don’t think I will use is the letter stickers from Studio Calico.  At least right now I can’t see them in any of my current projects.

I did enjoying using the kit mostly for card making but I am glad April helped me push myself to make a traditional scrapbook LO.

My first layout in a long time.

I know I could get one to two more layouts with the remaining kit paper. So I will add it to my October kit. See I made my own add-on without any added expense.

I definitely see me using up that gold paper really fast.  And the sticker element sheet I can use on-going in my Project Life. The colors do coordinate with the Octobe kit so I will definitely pull them in.

Tomorrow I will reveal the October kit and start cranking away since we are nearing the end of October and before you know it my November kit will make an appearance on my doorstep.

Have a blessed day and thank you for checking up on me.

    • Thanks April. I have to say, I am so thrilled when I look how much I got out of that kit and still have some left over. I think this challenge is a blessing in so many ways. Thank you so much for taking the time to check in and also to leave such wonderful comments. I get happy when I see a comment on this blog.
      Have a blessed day girlfriend!
