Stash-Busting Challenge: Kit Pic!

After spending the afternoon hunting for components for the Stash-Busting Challenge, I am happy to report that I now have a kit that I am really looking forward to working/playing with over the next few weeks. 
Here are the kit contents: 
1. Eight pieces of patterned paper scraps: Crate Paper/Maggie Holmes, Bella Blvd, Studio Tekturek, Love, Elsie. Daisy D's (left over from the last challenge), and KI Memories; four specialty paper/"other" paper scraps: paper cut from an Anthropologie shopping bag, KI Memories die-cut calendar paper, washi paper, and JBS perforated paper; two complete/unused sheets of patterned paper: one from Crate Paper and one from Studio Calico
2.  One yard of ribbon/trim: opted for two pieces of hemp cord and one piece of burlap trim, cut into 11" lengths 
3. One sticker sheet, with a catch: at least one sticker must be missing from the sheet: label stickers from Gossamer Blue
4. A pre-2015 alphabet set: American Crafts Typo Thickers (circa 2009, I believe).  
5. One opened package/container of scrappy product: Freckled Fawn arrow clips  
6.  One unopened package/container of scrappy product: rubber accents from Crate Paper 
7. One roll of tape: washi tape (brand unknown)
8.  One item or package of product from a company that no longer makes scrappy products:  Love, Elsie chip buttons 
9. Up to ten journaling and/or Project Life cards/tags: JBS (vintage tag), Crate Paper, Elle's Studio, random gray tag, Ali Edwards, Farmhouse Paper Co. 
10.    Two "wild card" items: Shimelle/American Crafts wood buttons and Crate Paper Cool Kid stickers 
11. A nearby item. Whoops! I just realized that I didn't photograph this with the rest of the kit contents. It's a packet from Freckled Fawn containing two acrylic words: "adventure" and "explore" (see image here)
Time to get scrapping! 


  1. I really like the structure of this kit. I have a hard time figuring out what to pull from my stash to create my own kit, and this breaks it down nicely. I can't wait to see what you create!

    1. I'm glad you'll be playing along, Robin!

  2. Put mine together last night and now have a photo. So I'm ready to start creating.

  3. I agree with Robyn, the structure of the kit takes away a big part of my hurdle when doing something like this. Not that I found putting a kit together easy (laughs hysterically)...
