Killing kits

Happy birthday to me! I'm one Studio Calico year old. I started subbing with Paper Moon last June, and have now made my first add-on purchase with my 10% rewards customer discount. The kits have been piling up a bit and having a stash stresses me out, so I decided go go through my kits and see what I could use. I have previously killed Paper Moon and Mind the Gap. I usually want to really use all that I can, so "one last layout" is my mission. With Boardwalk I couldn't do it. It didn't fit my style to begin with, so I just took it apart and saved the two packages of twine. Next I looked at Handmade. That is one of my favorite kits to recieve so far. Especially the alphas are wonderful. Those limegreen exclusive Amy Tan letterstickers in the Main. Yum!

And for your information this kit is still available. Here! That month I only got one add-on, Tatting:

In February I blogged a list with the number of layouts I'd made with the kits I'd recieved so far. You can find it here. As you can see I've made 10 layouts with Handmade so there really wasn't much left, but I loved it so much I had to try and make something with it. I had actually purchased an extra set of those colorful Amy Tan leaves, so I had those to use as well. This is what I made:

I almost only had numbers left from the limegreen alphas but I still HAD to squeeze them in. I loved how a fall kit went so well with a spring layout.
