Page Kit Playalong

Inspiring?  Definitely!  I told you camp was muddy :D (That's me at the bottom, cleverly standing on a rock)

Anyway, I'm going to be on the go quite a lot during the next few days and so I've decided to create time for myself to scrap.  I always carry a notebook or two with me for ideas, journalling, sketches and inspiration and this weekend, I'm going to take a page kit with me too.

I wanted to keep it really simple so my supplies won't be too heavy or take up too much space.  And whether I'm at home or away, I hope to be able to pull out these things and work on a page.  So feel free to play along and join in with me the weekend - stick a kit together and let's see what happens!

In my page kit, I've included the following items...

Six patterned papers plus some matching scraps and offcuts.
A tag and a doilly
A fabric embellishment and a chipboard embellishment
Brown embroidery thread
Alphabets in 2 sizes
A border punch
An ink pad
A journalling pen
Washi tape

There will also be my little trimmer, scissors, double sided sticky tape and the brown mist that I forgot to stick in the picture.  Finally you can see the print out of the photo I'm going to be scrapping.  It's the one from above, so I picked out supplies in green and brown with touches of pink and yellow to pull out the colours from the picture.

Once you've grabbed your supplies, snap a shot, and get creating!  But if, when you've nearly finished, you realise you really want to use something extra from your stash, I say go ahead.  After all, that's what stash is for: using and making things pretty!  So feel free to find that extra alpha, that butterfly punch or that perfect length of ribbon.  And enjoy it!

Finally, snap a picture of your page and we're all good to go.  Wish me luck!

P.S. Putting this kit together really made me aware of how much stuff I use to make a page.  I don't tend to use loads of any one thing, but I use a little bit of tons of things!  I'm going to take a picture of any extras I end up using after the page is done and see how I did.  Curious...
