I missed last weeks post because my “best sis” came for a visit. We live in different states and usually only see each other 1-2 times a year so my time with her is so special to me and to be honest – everything else falls to the wayside. 🙂
I usually show you how to make a page using one kit but today I want to show you how you can use items from several different kits to create a page. Time to think outside the box. 🙂
Naps this time of year are almost a daily activity for Pudge and my “ranchman” after spending the morning outside in the heat. This is the photo I want to use for my page. Isn’t she a cutie!
Choose your photo or photos you want to use then look for kits that have the same or complementary color schemes. At this point don’t worry about the theme of the kits because many have generic items within them you can use for any theme. Then look for elements that go with your page idea. My photo of pudge shows wood palettes and a bale of straw so you might think I want ranch or farm kits. But look at the names of the kits I’m using – Dreams of Daffodils, Boho Soul and a mix of appreciation items.
Here are the items I’m using from each one of these kits. They are grouped together as I have placed them on my page.
Dreams of Daffodils –
Customer Appreciation random gifts –
Boho Soul –
As you can see from these titles they don’t have the same theme at all or have ranch or farm themes, but they work with my photo. All of these kits have many more items in them that don’t go with my photo but if you take just a few minutes to review your kits you’ll be surprised at what you can create with them. I challenge you to try some “out of the box” ways to use the kits you have.
Here’s my page:
