Pages from the kit

Good evening, I hope you are enjoying the lovely weather we are experiencing here in the UK. Hopefully it will stay around for the summer holidays this year.....

A few weeks ago I showed you a kit I made up to take to crop. I had a great time and really enjoyed scrapping with limited supplies. Does anyone else get a bit overwhelmed with their stash?

Here are the four pages I made. I apologise for the pants photos and the mess behind them, I really need to sort my craft room out!

This is my boys, my nephew and I taken a few years back.

I don't get much chance to scrap with pink as I have 3 boys so I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It was taken 10 years ago at my brothers 30th he is 40 in a month!

This is the butterfly paper I made. It's of my girl Bella. Bella sadly passed away in November so I have been scrapping a lot of her photos recently. I kept the page very simple and you can't see it on the photo but I made some of the butterflies 3d.

Again this one is very simple and is of my middle boy Joseph.

I actually managed to spend some time in my craft room today. I finished off a few pages that need journaling. I will show you them next time.

Thanks for looking

Tomorrow is the Artful Angels crop in Winchester. It's a brilliant crop and very well organised and run. I am a very organised cropper, I pack page kits with the right embellishments, papers and photos. This month I decided to forge a kit.

I worked from this Cocoa Daisy kit from last year. Excuse the screen shot.

I added more male papers as most of the photos I scrap are of my 3 boys. I am also on a mission to use up scraps as they are getting out of control. Apart from the butterfly paper these are from the scrap box.

This is the butterfly paper that I have made. I used a Martha Stewart punch and just used random scraps. I love it!

These are my embellishments some I have made myself and some are shop bought. I also have a bag of journaling stickers and alphabets.

I have packed this kit with some punches, extra stamps, dies and plain cardstock. I have also added some card blanks to try and use the whole kit up.

Does anyone else make their own kits? It was great to my through my stash and actually pull some of it out.

I will be back next week to show you what I made.
