Kill a Kit Part 2

I know… I know.  One day I’m going through scraps, and the next I’m back to the Kill a Kit.  One word pretty much sums up my scrapping attention span.  Squirrel!  The truth is, I get bored if I stick with one thing too long.

I’m going to go back and forth between these two projects.  There is enough variety between the two to keep me interested for a while.  Really, the kill a kit will be a pretty quick process.  I had already used up some of the papers, so I won’t get a ton of layouts.  The scrap busting project allows me to make both layouts and cards.  The colors will vary, so it will keep it feeling pretty fresh.

For this layout, I chose my picture first.  I did have that bright pink in the Here & Now line in the back of my head when I went through my photos.  The pink in this cutie’s shirt was a good match.  From there I went with the stripe paper, drawing my color choices from it.  The yellow, teal, and green helped me keep a bright tone.

As I put my layers together, I felt like it needed something more.  It turns out that the pink cardstock was hanging out in my scraps.  (See, I did fit some scraps into this!)  By adding it to the left of my layers, the page felt a bit more balanced to me.

Since there is quite a number of colors in this page, I had a wide range of embellishments to choose from in my collection.  Again, I did pull stickers from this collection.  However I also found die cuts, velum shapes, and stickers from my stash as well.

Though I really like how this turned out, I do regret one thing.  I just don’t have a steady enough hand when it comes to outlining the papers in black.  It looks so good when other people do it.  I can’t seem to get it right.  Still, it does help set the papers apart.

My favorite part of this layout is the funky borders in all different designs.  I have zigzags as well as 2 different scallops.  For some reason, I feel like the variety of shapes and colors actually pulls the piece together.  Maybe it just reflects my personality.  I am a little “quirky” as my husband describes me.

One thought on “Kill a Kit Part 2

  1. I viewed your layout before reading your post. I have to say the first thing that caught my attention that I just love is the back pink paper with the zigzag edge. The next thing that caught my attention was the outlining of the papers. I stink at it and love to see it. Then I read your post, I think you did a fabulous job. Again great clusters.
