our Monthly Kit + your stash

Hello there scrappy friends! I’m back featuring another fabulous monthly kit and showing you how I mixed it with my current stash to create a fun(ky) layout 🙂

This month I mixed the Elle’s Studio August 2013 kit with Studio Calico kits, BasicGrey wood veneer, vellum, Prima ink and orange thread. I love the yellows, blues, pinks and greys from both kits and while I prefer the bright colors, I decided to soften (and contain) the confetti with vellum to keep the focus on the picture.

I made a hidden pocket and tucked the cards in. The ‘weekend recap’ pulls out and has all the journaling. I also hand stitched the star and chevrons to add a little more detail and texture.

How have you used your kit? What stash did you mix it with? Show us, we’d love to see!!
