February 2023 - Just The Gist Of It

 Welcome back to Just the Gist Of It where I hope to offer you a possible starting point for creating your kit.

 Here's a reminder of our inspiration kit this month:  

Cocoa Daisy February 2022 - Elegance Blooms Kit Elegance Blooms | Cocoa Daisy (link is all of their kits, 4 pages worth of inspiration, page 4 has downloadable prompts)

Modern Memory Keeping Kit: 


Pocket Cards: 



Here are a few unboxing videos of Cocoa Daisy February 2022 Elegance Blooms: (4) Elegance Blooms Live Facebook Unboxing with Christine & Mr. Daisy - YouTube

I know this kit is huge especially when you include all of the add on. So to get you started : 

1. Grab a couple of scrap pieces of paper.
2. Add in a couple of 4x6 and/or 3x4 journaling cards
3. Pick one stamp
4. Pick a punch or die

My papers are all scraps with the largest being 12x8 and the smallest at 2x3, in a variety of colors from the inspiration kit. I added in 3 4x6 journaling cards and 3 2x3 journaling cards. The stamp set as hearts and words (february looks like this, FEBRUARY MEMORIES, all the gratitude for these mundane days, xoxo) and the punch is a small heart shape. 

You now have just the basic elements from the inspiration kit. Just enough to do a layout or two, a couple of pocket pages or to use in a travelers notebook. This can also be the starting point for a larger kit. Add on more paper, to go with the above, add in embellishments, more tools (stamps, punches or dies). Just remember to have fun.

Here is what the rest of February's month of inspiration will look like:

4th February - Forgery on the Fourth - Master Forgers share simple ideas for creating kit elements.
6th February - Mini Kit Reveal and Project Showcase - Inspiration for a smaller kit or project ideas.

  1. This is a great formula Cindy for a mini kit or just to do a layout or two.
