March CKC Kit

I'm not part of the "official" CKC reveal and blog hop today but I thought I would post because it was my turn this month to select the inspiration kit and I chose something a little different.

We usually focus on an existing kit club or current collection to inspire homemade kits but I chose to base a kit on the "stash-busting challenge" concept from Jill Sprott.  You can read Jill's post about her 2017 challenge on her blog here.  I thought it was a fun idea and so I assembled a kit from my scraps using Jill's formula, and my kit is serving as the CKC inspiration for March.  Here is my kit:

I thought I'd walk you through the Jill's formula and my selections.

1. Eight pieces of patterned paper scraps + four specialty/other paper scraps + 2 completely unused sheets of patterned paper

I don't know the manufacturer or collection for most of the papers since I pulled them right from my scrap box and the branding strips were already removed.  The two unused sheets of patterned paper are Felicity Jane (floral) and Heidi Swapp (striped).

2.  No more than one yard of ribbon or trim (gray and white twine)
3.  Sticker sheet with at least one missing sticker (puffy heart stickers from a Shimelle collection)
4.  Pre-2015 alpha set (Bella Blvd., 2010)
5.  One opened package of product (Pink Paislee Cedar Lane Collection die-cuts)

6.  One unopened package of product (Pink Paislee Fancy Free Collection puffy stickers)
7.  One roll of washi tape (source unknown)
8.  One item or package from a company that no longer makes scrappy products (sticker sheet from Basic Grey)
9.  Up to 10 journaling or Project Life cards/tags (assorted PL cards, white tag, and three very old watercolor rimmed tags)

10.  Two wild card items/anything you've been wanting to use (large wood veneer piece and puffy asterisk stickers; both included in old Studio Calico kits)
11.  A nearby item/something within arm's reach (white stars from Studio Calico)

And so there it is.  Please make sure to take a look at the CKC blog and hop along to see how the team and our guest designer interpreted my kit.  I hope you'll be inspired to play along with us this month.  If you do, don't forget to share your kit and projects with us on our blog, in our Facebook community or on Instagram.
