For Challenge 5 at UA, we had to create a kit with our own supplies and then create a least 2 projects with our kit. Well of course I went a little overboard! But I really learned something from this challenge. I have SO many supplies that I don't even remember that I have! And even old lines of paper can look "new" again if you put them together with other papers of the same theme or feel. I really think I am going to start going through my stuff and making mini kits for myself. The way I approached this process was to think of a particular scene in my head and then think of the colors and patterns and textures of that scene. Then I went through my stuff and picked out items that had that feel to it. I didn't try to matchy-match everything...I just looked at each paper individually. By the end of the process, though, everything went together so great!
I was thinking about apple picking and autumn harvests and all the food at Thanksgiving. Then I thought of a cornucopia. So I choose papers that reminded me of a harvest or autumn foods and foliage. And this is what I came up with:
We had to do at least 2 projects with our kit, but I got a LOT more done! Here are 2 LO's, one a two pager. This two pager of Charlotte is one of my most favorite LO's ever!
And I even did a mini album! This album is called "Blessings" and has some of the things that I am blessed with in it. I have to add the journaling in yet....
Finally, I got three cards done, too!
This contest was SOOO awesome and I really plan on going into my stash and making kits for myself more often!
