Scrapbooking with Scraptastic Tongue Tied Kit- Part 2

Today I'm sharing a couple more layouts I made using the January Scraptastic kit.
Still at the beginning of using a kit, I use my favorite 12*12 patterned papers as background.
Like here-

I love that paper from Glitz Designs (Wild and Free collection), so I knew I wanted to use it as the background. The rest are just scraps and pieces of the other papers in the kit and add-on. Like most of the layouts I make with kits, this was also fast, and came together really easily. Having a limited amount of supplies really cuts down the time I spend making a layout, which is great in my book.

Some close-ups. Love the flair this month. And the bows. I'm all about the bows lately.

When a great unique paper comes my way, sometimes I just have to create something a little bit different. That is how I felt about this black and white script paper from Studio Calico Printshop collection. Yes, I have feelings for my papers:)

I had that photo of my daughter from a party, I love how happy and dynamic it is, like the paper! A little moment captured. So I tried this design, where the paper covers more than two thirds of the page, to create a real statement.

More pages to come this week. Using up a kit requires getting more and more creative with remaining supplies, and I'll share what I like to do when left with fewer items to choose from.
Thanks for visiting!
