Kill a Kit Challenge #1

One of the fun challenges we are doing here on Paper Lovers Studio is the "Kill a Kit" challenge. How does it work?? Simple:

We will be putting together our own kits to use and posting them once a month. The next month, we will post the projects we've made from the previous kit and post our next kit.

We would love to have you join in! Create your own kit and link up your projects!

Katie's Kit:
To make my kit, I started by going through my patterned paper stash and choosing a bunch of sheets that I thought could go well together. I included papers from Nikki Sivils, Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy, DCWV and a few others.
For embellishments I am using a couple of sets of Thickers, 1 sheet of chipboard stickers, spirograph stamps, 2 rolls of washi tape and my Amy Tangerine phrase stamp.

I plan on making atleast one layout with this kit and definitely a couple of cards. I love these colors.

Emily's Kit: Most of my paper is already in collection packs or pads, because I find it very easy to work that way. But I still wanted to put together a custom collection of patterns for this challenge, so I pulled together papers from a couple older My Mind's Eye collections as well as some from a Recollections (Michaels' store brand) collection. I picked 9 papers in all, and then added a set of Thickers, a smaller set of alpha stickers, a stamp set from Studio Calico and a larger one from Lawn Fawn, and two rolls of washi. The colors in this kit are very different from what I've been working with lately, so I'm really excited to take on the challenge to get this kit used up!
