Create Your Own Kit - March 2011

I am doing really well with my Kits so far - having started in September 2010 I am now on my seventh Kit and I have to say that this was the best idea I have had to get myself working on the stash I had at my fingertips.
Whilst it is of course great to have all the latest papers and embellishments, it should be more important to actually use what we already have.

I was a bit disappointed that I did not fare so well with my {{February Kit}} - I totally failed it and I guess it is due to the colours...I got totally bored and depressed looking at those earth tones, which is why I only managed the grand amount of ONE (= pathetic attempt) Layouts...ugh.

For the March Kit I wanted to go with some colour again and which better one to use than the one that still scares the living daylights out of me: YELLOW...uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh. It is the most underrated colour in crafting, I think and the reason is probably that I am not the only one being intimidated by this colour. That is also why I have set my attempted goal higher than usual, as you will see at the end of the post.
You may, correctly, say that not all the papers you see below are in fact yellow, but that is just because I decided to take a picture of the flip side of the paper. The picture looked totally boring when I showed all the yellow sides....so there!

  1. can't wait to see what you are doing with it!

  2. Wow! I like working with yellow! I can't wait to see what you come up with. I think all of these "kits from your stash" challenges I'm seeing are going to inspire me to create my own "kit"! Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. Yellow... my fave colour!! Looking forward to seeing everything!! Robin

  4. Good luck! I like yellow and always find it works really well with grey, give it a shot!

  5. i loathe yellow. i absolutely avoid it if at all possible, so i feel your pain! looks like a fun kit and i know if anyone can rock it, you can :)
