Project .... Use your stash

I've recently been watching lots of videos on YouTube about making up kits from your own stash. One in particular is a woman who's channel is called nicmackin who makes up kits from her stash and calls it Project, Use your stash. 

So armed with that and with the latest Cocoa Daisy kit which came just the other day, I put one together.
This is the cocoa daisy kit which I'm using as my base, and the cut apart paper was my starting point. 
I included lots of thickers and smaller alphabets, as well as some old Echo Park sticker sheets.
Added more Bazzill 
And then went through my paper collection.  I have a dreadful habit of saving the papers I really love and not wanting to use them, but I thought with this exercise, it would be a good chance to actually use those lovely papers and scraps I've saved. I also included some really old papers, and even old velums I found.
I then went embellishment mad ... I included washi tapes, labels, old ribbons and even added in some project life cards.

So they you have it, my first grab and go kit.  I'm calling it this as I'm making a few of them, and then when we're off to the little house, at least, in theory, I can grab one of these and do some scrapping. 

I'm even going to use them when doing some project life layouts. 

And here's my first layout from it. 
This layout is the last of the five I picked from January five I picked to scrapbook.  Thanks Jo, for the idea, I'll be joining in again, but maybe as I'm a bit behind on that, I'll pick five from Feb and March. 


  1. Looks like a monster kit! I've also been putting some kits together lately having taken an online YouTube class from NicoleJones911. It's good to use up some old stash. Love the layout here :)

  2. Great LO Sandra.
    The kit is huge but perfect for grabbing when you go to the little house - have fun with the contents.

  3. Looks like a FUN grab & go kit!!

  4. You've got a beautiful base there with that CD kit, so I'm sure that putting your grab and go together was a lot of fun. I'm another saver of the nicest paper, so I'm inspired by your use of that lovely brown pattern which I really should put my scissors to!

  5. The kit you've put together looks great, want to come over and make some up for me? :) That layout is gorgeous xx

  6. I just love that page Sandra. That white floral paper is divine! A Lovely memory scrapped. Have fun using the kit!
