Just The Gist of It – The Little Things In Life

Yes, I think the name of this month’s inspiration kit sums it up in a few words.

As you saw yesterday
, this month’s kit from Scrapdelight has a limited color palette and a generally small scale:
  • small flowers,
  • small leaves, 
  • small dots,
  • small grids,
  • small labels,
  • small hearts.
Most of it is of a petite scale, but even the large elements have a delicateness about them.  Scrapdelight offers all three types of kits, but in my opinion, the contents of the just scrapbook kit work for scrapbook pages, project life pockets and planners too.

It is entirely little bits of splendid scrappiness.

Will you embrace the fact that it is lavender and green, with black and white in February?  Or will you think about adding in pink because it is February, after all?  In the right tones, pinks could work beautifully as well – just as the yellow does in their add-on kit.  This color wheel will help you see why (i.e., pinks are next to purples as yellows are next to greens).

Just keep the colors soft and the proportions sweet and your counterfeit kit will capture the diminutive essence of this month’s inspiration kit. Happy kitting.

  1. While flipping through my purple papers, I found the perfect pattered paper to represent the kit in my layout this month. Little flower/circles in soft green and purple, and a brighter yellow. Sums up the Scrapdelight kit in one foot square.
