Create Your Own Kit - January 2011

Oh yes, just because we have a new year doesn't mean that I stop creating my own Kits from my old stash...that is definitely an ongoing thing for the time being.

I am going back to basics though as I did on my first two kits, i.e. I only select the papers and card stock but do not match embellishments to it. I found that I am much more creative, when I can delve in the abyss that is a plethora of embellishments in all colours of the rainbow (holy cow...where did that sentence come from?!???).

When I chose the embellies for my {{November}} and {{December}} Kit, I found that I was less creative. So let's see how I fare with my first Kit for this year

** click on image to enlarge **
3 sheets of 12 x 12 cardstock from Bazzill
2 sheets of 12 x 12 double sided paper from My Minds Eye
2 sheets of 12 x 12 double sided paper from Cosmo Cricket

Attempted Goal:
4 Layouts
'London Rocks' ** 'Thankful' ** 'Watch out' ** 'Wembley'
1 Card
'Thank You'

Well - I actually already achieved the above goal because I pretty much used up the Kit and have 4 layouts and 1 card completed since yesterday....but some have been done for challenges, so I cannot show them all just yet.
But these two I can:

Card - Thank You
