Scrapbook layouts Studio Calico February Front Line kit.

I subscribe to Studio Calico for their project life kit.  In February I also bought the “front line” scrapbook kit.  I loved using it to complete 5 layouts of recent pictures.  I watched a video of another subscriber that “kills” her kits each month. Then she enjoys getting another new kit with the challenge again of using it up.  I had so much fun doing the same.  I am not going to subscribe now, as I really, really, really, want to USE my stash up.  I am giving myself a 6 month moratorium of purchasing  scrapbook products. (I will however keep my Project Life sub).  I want to have only a few papers left so I can then budget in this fun way of purchasing a monthly “scrapbook kit gift” to myself.  In September we can see how my paper supply is.  I am hopeful to get to subscribe then for some monthly happy mail.

It was fun to challenge myself to use only the kit products.  In a couple of cases, I did use some other stamps and a piece of cardstock as a base. Mostly these layouts are from the Studio Calico front line kit. After the 5 layouts, I “killed” the kit putting the leftover products in my stash.   It’s fun to see how different the papers can be combined to have a different look.  It also is fun to be done with these papers.  The third photo is of the pieces left…the killed kit. 🙂

(I really can’t wait to have my Joy visit.  She can help me arrange my photo’s in the order I want them to be! )

This last layout was a scrap lift from a layout on the Studio Calico blog in February. ( I see a little Amy Tangerine embellishments as well on the first layout.)

I have kept my PL up to date. I am considering posting it, but not convinced I need to.  My book is almost full!  I was hoping to keep it to 2 albums this year. I am not doing very good at keeping my layouts and extras minimal.  I WILL TRY to improve on this. I am just having so much fun filling it up!  We will see.

Much grace to each of you.  Jesus is Lord!  Jesus is OUR Lord! 🙂  LUBM       Debbie
