I've killed kits before, and the last layout is always the most difficult one to manage. At that point, the kit is comprised of small scraps that don't seem like they could translate to a unified page, there aren't enough letters to spell out the title you want, you've used up most of the accents, and you aren't sure whether to just call it or push through.
I pushed through with this layout, using the "Thinking Out Loud" kit from Scraptastic.
On a recent Scraptastic blog post, I wrote about the process of putting this together. My favorite part of the page occurred somewhat unintentionally -- after I added the stitching, I realized that it resembled a pathway similar to that seen on a fire escape plan.
So I killed the kit. I didn't feel like a psychopath or an epic hero, but I did feel a sense of liberation. Facing a kit when it is fully intact is so different from facing a kit when there's hardly a kit left. When you're down to the dregs of a kit, anything goes, and that's when your creativity kicks in, sometimes in unexpected ways.
