It was then that I was deep cleaning the studio and clearing out stash for our local scrapbook store’s annual rummage sale. While cleaning and clearing, I repeatedly noticed items that would be great for an autumn scrapbook kit. After all, November’s inspiration kit was surely going to be fall themed, right?
Yes, these were odds and ends – old ones, some dating back to circa 2009 when I started scrapping and blogging online. That only made me all the more determined as this past year I had been working mostly with newer items from my stash. My November mission became to include the oldest stuff I could find, and FINALLY use it up. Trouble is that this filled a pizza-style box to overflowing – so I set it all aside until now.
When I saw this month’s inspiration kit by Cocoa Daisy:
I could begin to whittle it down to those items that went with the main colors of coffee brown, leaf green and creamy straw. Still I ended up with a sizeable kit that will be suitable for layouts as well as pocket pages. Like the inspiration kit it has a dual personality of the great outdoors and travel too. I think it will be a kit that will hold my interest with its variety.
