On NSD I worked entirely off my stash. It feels really good to see it disappearing. My goal is to get to the point where the only extras I own are cardstock and a few embellishments that I know I will use. Scrapbooking is a hobby that is hard on the environment, with lots of product being shipped all over the world, and often kept in boxes and bowls and never used. I think it's important to be aware of that, and try to minimize ones impact on the environment as much as possible, while still allowing yourself to create the things you want and like.

For me it was time to fill up this month. The last kit I got since I quit my sub at Studiop calico was Cirque. I am still a subber to the PL kits. They disappear in no time, so I don't have much of a stash as far as PL is concerned.

For my first layout using Carolina Moon, I wanted to use this photo my son took. I was chasing him because he took my phone, and he was taking pictures of me as I ran after him. So funny! I started out by googleing "funny quotes about me", and came up with these two quotes I really liked, this one for my journaling and this one for my title. That dark blue patterned paper is my favorite one, and I always use my favorites first.

Materials:Carolina Moon SB and PL kits, Lauren addon, Versafine Onyx Black ink and Color Box gold metallic ink

For my second Carolina Moon layout I was inspried by this pin, that's been on my Future Layouts board for a long time.

Materials: Carolina Moon SB and PL kits, Lauren addon, Versafine Onyx Black ink and Carolina Moon PL kits digital stamps (the EXPLORE stamp is an old digital kit stamp that is no longer available)

It's fun to have some all new products to work with. Looking forwards to creating more over the weekend!
