September's Passport, November's Comfort, January's Begin and 2 from February, Tender and Nostalgic. I have been reaching for these kits almost every day of the month and am happy to see some serious reductions.
January's is complete with 9 layouts and now November has also all been used up producing 6 layouts and a mini-book. Not as many layouts as usual because I think each was a bit more paper heavy than usual. I ended the month with quite a few embellishments left over but only a few scraps of paper. No doubt I could have managed a card or two to really finish it off, but who's got time for cards in the middle of LOAD? Not me :-)
Anyway, I'm here this morning to share two layouts using Comfort - in fact, the first layout I made with the kit but couldn't share right away - magazine layout - and the last before I broke it all up and tucked the scraps away.
|This was made for The Scrapbook Magazine on the topic of resolutions. It seemed appropriate to record my OLW for 2014.|
Lots of embellishments and bits and pieces to add dimension and fun to this, what I'd like to think is, happy layout. I loved this background paper and hope that I have another sheet left in the pack. Crate Paper's collection packs (unfortunately no longer available in new collections) duplicated some but not all the papers, so I'm hoping for a double on this one!
And I'm hoping to track down some more of these wonderful gold doilies - bought at a local stationary store in the Golden Wedding Anniversary section - as they are perfect on so many of my pages right now.
The second layout to share today is for LOAD214 #24 Myth: Each page you create should have a new design.
For this design, I scraplifted and took inspiration from two of my own layouts: New Year, New Me and On Our Way Down (both found over at Whimsical Musings)

I really loved this kit and am, as ever, a little sad to have said goodbye to it. But there are still three kits on the shelf, along with the new Scrapabilly kit for me to start and a new Counterfeit Kit Challenge kit to go live on Saturday. It's not like I'm short of variety to use right now :-)
