May 2023 - Just The Gist Of It

 Are you wondering how to start gathering items for your kit?

This is the kit "Noteworthy" Limitless Kit – {Not} Just for Boys Kit Club (notjustforboyskitclub.com)

Follow the link to see it on the actual page.

  • First idea: I always look at the papers first and often write a list of what stands out to me.

This month it was the alphabet paper and the circles paper, also the green branches.
I noticed it is black, white, green and yellow, so started there when gathering my papers. Substitute if you have nothing similar to a certain paper.
  • Second idea: Check your scraps. Often you can find a piece of plaid if you need that or leaves etc. 
That bag of neutrals in the last picture appeals to me. You could stamp creams or kraft to make something similar to use or tags, tickets etc. 
  • Third Idea: Forge!!! The papers with lines are easy to forge with a felt tip pen. Could you use stamps or stencils to make some of the others? The words can be made using old alpha sets. 

To help you on your way, here's my papers. Similar but different to the original kit.

Remember, it is about having fun! 

Here's what is coming up the rest of the month:
  • 4th May - Forgery on the Fourth- master forgers show you how to create your own kit items
  • 8th May - Mini kit reveal - for those who have not as much time to do a full kit or just want to dabble this month.
  • 12th May - Challenge #1- To inspire you to get creating 
  • 18th May - challenge #2 - To again inspire you
