FMAK #6/2015 - Kit Contents - Puddles

Hi fellow crafters. Today I am sharing with you the Scrap Your Stash September 2015 kit.  The colour inspiration for this was shared on the Scrap Stash Kit Club Facebook group.  There is also the website Scrap Stash Kit Club that you can check out for more details on how the kit club works.

The September kit has been  named Puddles by Margareta.  The colour inspiration was shared on the Facebook group.

I really like the colour inspiration for Puddles. I find I have many items within my stash that coordinate with these colours and they are colours that I naturally gravitate towards when doing layouts.

Here is a photo showing an overview of the kit contents.


I've put together a quick video for those of you who like to see the contents in a video.

FMAK #5/2015 - Kit Contents - Triad

Hi fellow crafters. As mentioned in my previous blog, I'm taking a class at Big Picture Classes (BPC) that teaches you how to build/put together your own scrapbook kit.  I consider myself fairly experienced in putting kits together, but I am having fun learning new approaches. For this class I've put two kits together. The first one, FMAK #4/2015 titled Split, can be read about in my previous post and this post is to show case the second kit I've put together called Triad.

Here is a photo showing an overview of the kit contents.


For those of you who like to see kit contents in a video, here is a quick video.

I've also included mixed media. However, this photo does not capture all the mixed media that will be in the kit because much of it is currently with my "50 Sheets of Pattern Paper" kit.

FMAK #4/2015 - Kit Contents - Split

Hi fellow crafters. I'm back with another FiLoMa's Make A Kit #4/2015 titled "Split".  FYI, I'm still working with FMAK #3/2015, but I've recently joined Big Picture Classes (BPC) and one of the many courses I'm taking is putting your own kit together.

As you know, if you've read my previous posts and/or watched my YouTube channel I'm pretty confident in putting my own kits together.  The course at BPC is being taught by Margareta from Use Your Stash or Facebook group "Scrap Your Stash", both of which I am members of.  What I like about the BPC class is that I'm looking/learning different ways of putting a kit together.  This kit is the first that I've put together following the classes guidelines/lessons.

Here is an overview photo of my kit.  You will see, hopefully, that this is the smallest kit I've ever put together. I deliberately made it smaller since FMAK #3/2015 is quite large.


What is not included is my mixed media product as that is currently with FMAK #3/2015. I will also be using my mixed media products with this kit.

I have also put together a very quick video showing the contents.

I plan to use all my kits, which will give me variety.  This kit, and a couple of others I'm in the process of putting together do not have a timeframe for when I want to use them up.  I still plan to use FMAK #3/2015 for the month of September.

FMAK #3/2015 - Layout Share - Squidge and Boofhead

Hi fellow crafters. Today I'm sharing with you a simple layout I did using a watercolour background technique.  I'm taking a class over at Big Picture Classes (BPC) learning how to do great backgrounds using watercolours.

I really enjoyed doing the background and did struggle a little putting the embellishments on the page. I wanted to show case the background so knew I did not want many embellishments. I did find the balance in the end.

Below is a photo of my layout but I also have a very quick process video on my YouTube channel.
