and welcome to each of you on this bright and fresh 1st January!
This is where the inspiration took me. May I present "Sigh".
I started off by going through some of my older Christmas kits if you can believe it and took out papers in the colours - grey, white, black, blues and pinks - that reminded me of the original kit as well as matching up some of the core patterns - woodgrain, spots, diamonds and stripes. I didn't have any suitable floral so this outline camera print is a good substitute. The number paper is a replacement for the word paper. I seem to have lost some of the deeper colours from the inspiration kit but love the mix that I have put together.
Puffy alphas, glitter hearts, tags and some bits and pieces - including a few random die cuts pieces that are left over from my Christmas tag extravaganza - that reminded me of the colours or elements of the Felicity Jane original. I also included a pocket page kit that I found from Studio Calico that had a lot of the same colours - I thought it might be useful if I did some of my Project Life.
Lots of small labels, word stickers, stars in a matching colour, circles die cut from papers with the same tones, a bunch of washi tape in blacks, greys and golds and two sets of Shimelle stamps from the last two years of Christmas kits. Even if I don't make Christmas pages, there are plenty of words and elements in the sets which could be used - I need to remind myself to get stamping more often.
The black and white puffy elements also reminded me of the Felicity Jane kit.
All in all, it's an interesting kit to start the year and I hope I get to make some pages in the days to come. You never know, I might even have a go at forging one or two of the items in the inspiration kit ;-)
Thanks for joining me today. Here's the full blog hop list so do make sure you hop along to see everyone's take on the kits. There's always so much inspiration to be found in how each of us interpreted the original kit for our own style!
