Lisse Street Kit Mixing // Studio Calico

When it comes to scrapbooking, using kits makes the process so simple and easy!  If I'm not using a kit, I usually find myself searching all of my craft room for papers, embellishments, etc.  With the kit, though, all of the guesswork is taken out and it gives me a great starting base!!

Each month with my Studio Calico kits, I start with the main kit only and create a few pages.  I typically find that once I get started with one page, the ideas flow easier, so I end up making a few at a time.  Then I grab out my other kits and mix them all together!  Kit mixing is so fun!  I love putting all of my embellishments together and creating little clusters of fun on my pages.

For this first project, I used a lot of paper scraps to create a small vertical background on my page.  I added my photo right in the middle of the paper strips and then added in a few embellishments around the page.

I'm the worst at adding titles, but I managed to get one here! It's not grammatically correct, but more of a play on words - like - you "2" are so "good".  Clear as mud, right?! :)

This second layout is also a mix of kits.  I wanted to use this larger photo of my sweet son sleeping, so I centered right in the middle of my card stock and the built my layers around the photo. 

The papers this month are some of my favorite!  I'm a huge fan of text paper and polka dot papers, so it was a no-brainer that I was going to pair these two together!!  The gold Seven Paper hearts and star sequins were the perfect finishing touches to my page!!

Are you a fan of kits too??
