1 kit 4 pages

Remember these from last weeks post?

I'm trying to clear through my box of photos that I printed out ready to be scrapped. There are quite a few!! I thought what better way to do than use up the kits I found in my magic crop bag. This is the Essentially GoGo August 2012 kit: {well most of it, I forgot to take a picture of it after I had removed the bag!}

As you can see, I have already sorted it out! I started by choosing photos that match the theme of the papers, this kit had a sunshine & showers type theme. The next step was sorting out the kit into piles, the PP was first, then the cardstock, the embellishments and other bits were last.

 As you can see, there are only three piles of prettiness here and the eagled-eye'd bunch will notice my post title says four! There is more to come I promise!
The kit had these cute Sun and cloud embellishments in white but I felt like the suns should be yellow {or gold} so I found my Mister Huey Gold mist....

....and got spraying!!

Doesn't that look pretty and wonderfully messy!?

They work so well with the paper!

This is the first layout I created using only the kit, I cut up one of the PP's that had doilies all over it and used them as embellishment. The lit also came with a sheet of printables so I cut out the ones that I thought matched each page and it's colour scheme.

Ooh, there's one of the cute clouds...

The PP for the second layout had a cloudy theme and I thought it went well with the pictures I had of Adam + Emily gazing out of the window at the never ending rain... this was taken in JULY! That was a bad month for weather that year!

Apologies for the photo quality. It was a very wet, grey day here when I took them!

I love this cute pin embellishment that came in the kit, I have glue it so that you can still move the pretty beads - if you so choose to that is!

Onto the third layout, I really like the colour scheme here. Again, I used the doily and used my EK success heart punch to add an extra touch.

After making those three layouts, I was left with this: 

Excuse the onesie knee! {Oops, how did that get in there?} I was determind to make another page out of what was left and in the end I think the last layout has to be one of my favourites from the kit.

 I cut up the doily paper some more to give the page more of a flow...

...and even cut the cute bunting and bigger border from the print on the back of it.

There you have it... my 1 kit, 4 pages.

I'm still on the lookout for a new subscription kit if anyone has any recommendations?

Speak soon.

All four of these are great & I like how you used all those leftovers for the last one! Of course, the one with the yellow background is my favorite - such a happy color! :)

Well done, you really made good use of that kit.
